Site Redesign Q&A

September 2, 2013

Oh here’s an anecdote for you, so what started out as a simple lick of paint for McCannecdotes.com about a month ago, ended up being a total fucking nightmare of nothing working as it should and endless nights staring at code (and some porn). The result is a site that does pretty much everything the old site did, has some capital letters in places the …

The Problems With Having A Website

March 9, 2013

When I started this blog, I intended it as an efficient way to keep about 6 people up-to-date on the latest shenanigans in my life without having to tell them, call them or e-mail them individually. A noble ambition. Now with literally “some” or even “dozens” of readers, I’ve realised my ambitions were too muted. Now I want to run an international Polish t-shirt printing business, …

Ages I tell …

The Darts Conundrum

January 27, 2013

It seems even this website itself isn’t immune to random happenings. I decided to take a look at my site’s stats to see how many reads I was getting on recent posts. One of the stats tells me how many people Share from the site – that is clicking one of the buttons on the posts themselves to share, rather than sharing my Facebook post. …

What The Fuck Is This Shit?

August 23, 2009

Hello, welcome to my blog. A few people have suggested I should write down the comedy happenings which seem to occur everyday in my life, and most likely, those few people will be the only people who read this – really it would be quicker to phone them up each day and tell them over the phone. But maybe if I write everything down, I …
