Rogue Students is back

After much deliberation over what content management system to use, I’ve finally brought back Rogue Students, which is now powered by vBulletin forums and some extra files courtesy of vBadvanced to make the home page display the latest news. Any feedback on the site would be appreciated, and if you want to get involved all […]

New Year’s Eve party

For those of you who didn’t know, we decided to bring in the new year in style by having a house party at the place where I live in Manchester (well, actually there were various plans being thrown around until it was decided on a house party and as usual I opened my big mouth […]

Happy New Year!

Ok, I know this is technically a few minutes late (due to me being absolutely shattered and travelling all over the place in the last 24 hours), but I wish everyone a Happy New Year for 2005.

Girls I fancied but failed to get anywhere with: Ha ha, wouldn’t you like to know. 😉 Girls I fancied and did get with: None. 🙁 Great […]

RSS feed available

After requests from several people (including Samir), I’ve incorporated an RSS feed into my site.

New machine

My flatmate Mike helped me assemble it, and it’s now handling DNS requests for my local network at home in Bury, plus it hosts and provides the DNS for two of my domains. It’s also running […]

Full speed ahead

Now that I’ve finished for Christmas and have some spare time on my hands, I’ve finally got down to working on my new weblog system properly. Already the main page is done, the archive page is on the way and the pages for individual months/days will use almost exactly the same code and therefore should […]

Ooops!

I’ve just managed to delete my entire Compsoc inbox in one fell swoop by telling mutt to move files from the mail spool to my home directory, and then deleting the mbox file because I thought I’d backed it up. 🙁

New blogging system

I’ve got some spare time this weekend for once (woohoo!), so I’ll hopefully get cracking on my blogging system. I already have the design plotted out and the templating stuff is ready, so it’s mostly a matter of getting posts from the database and letting people comment on entries. I’ll probably write entries directly in […]
