Monthly Archive for April, 2007

So I noticed something weird

As you may or may not know, I maintain a log of download numbers for various files I offer (don’t worry, there’s no personal information recorded – just the fact that a download occurred). It’s kinda useful to know, for instance, how many active users of a widget there are, or whether something that I posted for a specific individual has been retrieved.

Now, one of the files I had up was an archive of some pictures of me and some mates on holiday (it’s gone now, so no need to search for it to find my ugly mug). There were only six people who knew about that archive, including me. Now, assuming that everyone who knew about it downloaded it, that’s 6 downloads. Imagine my surprise to note that there were considerably more than that. Sort of creepy to know that random people downloaded those pictures. I can only assume that it was in error. Fortunately, I don’t do anything interesting enough for those pictures to be embarrassing 😉

BBC Radio Widget v3.0

BBC Radio 3.0 is here!

There’s a new widget in town – BBC Radio Widget 3.0. Featuring, by popular request, an in-widget schedule!

Hopefully the first of several widget releases in the next few weeks (due to brief access to an internet connection, hurrah!).

Did you mail me about a Cinematic variant?

I wouldn’t normally post this as news, but this may be the only way:

Some time back I had a couple of emails from someone (whom I won’t name, seeing as that would be rude) who had made a Cinematic variant, and wanted permission to release it. I tried to reply twice, but my messages got bounced (grr, over-zealous spam filters) – so if that was you, please get in touch again if you’re waiting for a reply, preferably with some more details or a prototype… :)
