  • Getting ahead of the game: changed theme early

    I noticed that the security status was having a whinge about unused themes, and that turned out to be because there was a new one. Since I never really warmed to the previous one (a little to sparse, IMO), I’ve jumped right onto the new one (next years’). Seems a bit fancy, in that it […]

  • Moved

    Just a single letter difference in the URL: we’ve moved from the top-level ccTLD for the Pacific island nation of Niue, .nu to the island continent of Australia .au. The former was always a bit of a semantic stretch, and was set up at a time when it appeared that doing so was supporting internet […]

  • Back on the air..

    Broadcasting live from a new address block, in a different house with a different internet connection. Normal transmission appears to have resumed. Any discrepancies with reality are therefore probably your own problem.

  • Another upgrade, another deprecated theme

    This morning’s software maintenance upgraded WordPress. Had to poke around on Google to figure out why my site had vanished, and what to do about it. Nothing dramatic: database upgrade. Good, there everything was, in the admin panel. Nope: the old theme had been deprecated too, so I had to choose another. Might as well […]

  • Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.

    Made it. As expected, Iceland Air couldn’t print boarding passes for the two Qatar legs of the journey, although they could check our luggage all the way through. That’ll be why we couldn’t do the online check-in, either. Not much of a “partnership” really, IMO. We had a bit more time in Stockholm Arlanda to […]

  • Last minute infrastructure upgrade

    This blog is now available in IPv6 flavour, for those who prefer it, thanks to the magic of the nbn. Pictures might load a little quicker too. Let’s hope it’s also reliable: still too young to be able to tell from experience.  Not that it matters greatly on this trip, as the expected total lack […]

  • Countdown clock is becoming more urgent — we’re off again soon

    Countdown clock is becoming more urgent — we’re off again soon

    Time to warm up the travel paraphernalia, such as this blog.  Make sure that the workings haven’t suffered bit-rot.  Bookings are all in order, I believe (flights, car hire and accommodation).  Should probably cross check once again.  Extra clothes and camera kit is mostly in order. We’ve done this enough times now that some of […]

  • WordPress have an app — what is it like?

    This seems to be very nice!  It’s got the whole dashboard back on the previous screen, along with a “compose” button that brings up a new page to edit.  What more could you want?  Let’s see how it goes with photos… Here’s one from near the end of yesterday’s adventure on the high  seas.  That […]
