A helpful reader informed me that the comment spam protection plugin was breaking after the first failed attempt. IE if you typed in the wrong answer, hit ‘post comment’, went back and then typed the correct answer, you still got the same error message saying it was wrong. I wondered if this was an intentional […]
Speed optimisation is a focus at work for the company sites, but it’s not something I’ve spent that much time on for this site. When better than a sleepy weekend morning to crack out the caching plugins for WordPress and have a bash! Yesterday I installed W3 Total Cache and managed to break my site shortly […]
I’ve just added a plugin which allows people leaving comments to be notified of future replies on the same post. I’ve opted for Comment Reply Notification. If you fancy testing it out, leave a comment on this thread and I’ll reply to it!
I started using Twitter a few weeks ago and am finding it increasingly useful. I heard about Twitter a few years ago and was strongly encouraged to use it by my brother, but never really saw the use in it. What I’ve found is that if you follow interesting people, it’s a great source for […]
It’s fairly obvious that the frequency and quantity of posts on my website has slowed somewhat in the last year or two, and sometimes, i wonder if there’s any point writing anything (i had that thought a number of times while writing the last one, which is why it’s not as coherently structured as i […]

This led me to change the layout of the posts, with the categories and tags displayed on the bottom at the left, and the […]
I went on a shopping spree of domain names a few days ago…purchasing no less than 5 badboys! This site is now proudly accessible through both fergus-macdonald.com and fergusmacdonald.com! However, the bigger news is that my budding enterprise, Macdonald Sporrans, is now ambitiously branching out onto the mainstream world wide web through no less than […]
Just an update on the site’s new look. I was getting a little bored with the last one and think that this is a bit cleaner and fresher! Lemme know if you notice any bugs or anything that you think could work a little better.
I’ve just been checking out the visitor statistics of my website, provided free by StatCounter. Interestingly, the majority of visitors use Internet Explorer Version 6.0! I’m rather surprised about that. I know that it’s still the most popular browser, but i figured that people who read blogs are probably more interested in technology, therefore are […]
