New Year, New Site

Thursday, January 7th, 2010 at 14:59 | by Alistair Baillie

Its a new year and I have yet another new web site design.

So what’s changed? The blog is now handled by WordPress instead of BlogOff, this proved rather harder than anticipated as WordPress seems to store lots of useless information, but its now all copied across. Unfortunately I was unable to copy across the comments that people had made on my old blog, so there all gone.

Sticking with the blog, it is now arranged into categories with anything relating to my time in the Merchant Navy or my cadet ship now located in the Merchant Navy category.

This year has me participating in something has been around for a while “project 365”, the idea is simple… you take a photo of something every day for 365 days (thats conveniently a year). You can start one any time, but I decided to start on the 1st of January 2010 and plan to continue through to the 31st of December.

I am using flickr to store my project and have written a little script to copy my project 365 photos and place them on this site, you can view my project photos by clicking the link at the top of this page. If you are interested in doing your own and want the script I am using, let me know and I will give you the details. If enough people are interested I might even make it as a plugin for WordPress.

RSS! The location of the RSS feed has now moved so if you are used to reading this site offline you will have to update your reader with the new address.

Anyway thats about it, there are still one or two small glitches to be fixed but otherwise all is now working as it should, feel free to let me know what you think!
