5th bloggiversary (oh, and Happy New Year)

I usually forget the anniversary of this blog. I think this is for a variety of reasons. Firstly, at this time of year we usually have other festivities on our minds. Also this blog has two major anniversaries in my mind. Moving to doctorvee.co.uk was a watershed, and I am sometimes reluctant to even acknowledge […]

A new look

Yes, I’ve decided to give the blog a new look again. I couldn’t wait to get this up, but it’s not quite finished. I still need to do a few tweaks here and there. (Surprise surprise, it looks a bit guff in Internet Exploder.) But it’s quite late now and I can’t bring myself to […]

F1 season review: the constructors (top 5)

This is the latest in my continuing series of posts reviewing the 2007 Formula 1 season. You can check out the other posts in the nifty new table of contents on the right (thanks to the In-Series WP plugin). This post will look at my top five constructors of the season. 5 — Ferrari As […]

Notice for non-F1 fans

This is something that I mention over and over again, but it is a fact that one of the most common things people say about my blog is along the lines of, “Of course, I skip past all of the F1 posts.” Those people would be doing a lot of skipping this weekend. The F1 […]

A word on post ratings

I couple of months back I added a feature on this blog that lets you rate posts. I said at the time that I would have preferred a Reddit-style “thumbs up” / “thumbs down” system, but I had to make do with a 5 stars system. Well, the plugin that I use now has a […]

Shove your partial feeds up your RSS

(Yes, every post I write about RSS must contain the hilarious “‘RSS’ sounds a little bit like ‘arse’” pun.) I have a request for those people who publish RSS feeds. Make them full feeds! I know there is a supposedly a debate about whether partial or full feeds work best. Well, that is not really […]

Why do those social bookmarking links exist?

There is a fixture of the modern web that I really don’t understand. And in terms of annoyance it is probably second only to Snap Preview. Millions of links to social bookmarking websites littering the bottom of every news article and blog post written. You know the ones. “Digg this!” “Send to del.icio.us!” “Pimp-me-do to […]

The post below is a lie

It is an April Fool you see. Ho ho. Mind you, I’m not sure how many people are getting in on the action this, since most normal people don’t get up until after midday on a Sunday. (Not me unfortunately; I’m not normal enough.) Anyway, this post is to say that, far from passing the […]


I just did a slightly scary thing and upgraded WordPress. I’ve had to upgrade a good few plugins at the same time, so I’m not 100% sure everything went okay. So if there’s something up please let me know in the comments or something! Thanks. Update: Well I’ve already found one pretty big problem. Tag […]

Look what I gave the blog for Christmas

Some new clothes! They still need to be ironed a bit though. I’ll sort out all the little niggles over the coming days. What do you think? Update: Finally getting round to updating this post, which I meant to do yesterday. It’s crazy. It’s Christmas and I’m still running all over the place with no […]
