Running – Day1

Wow, it’s been a long time since I posted so I figured I would try and use the blog to talk about more then just IT stuff (Even though theres little of that on here). I don’t know what happened but on my drive home I felt motivated to go for a run. I haven’t done any decent excerise for along time, we’re talking 8 years or so.

Anyhows, I just finished running 2.5 miles in 22 minutes and 17 seconds (6.7 mph). Not too shabby for my first run.I’ll keep posting my times and hopefully improvements, a good motivator as the guys at work will take the piss if I give up.

I recorded the times and distance using a free app for the iPhone (Trainer Lite). If I can keep this up I will find a better app and perhaps share my routes.

WordPress :: iPhone

When I ventured to wordpress.com to setup this blog I noticed that there was an iPhone application. As owner of a new iPhone I was pretty chuffed.

One of the reasons my previous attempts to blog failed, were lack of time to sit down and write. Although not much has changed regarding time, I can make a good start by creating notes for a post.

Another plus for me, when posts are saved on the iPhone it can store them locally, so you don’t even have to be connected. (Very handy in rural Lincolnshire).

Briefly Disappointed

I knew it was a new application but I really hoped it had comment moderation. Sadly version 1.1 doesn’t but after checking the road map I found that this feature had already been completed.

The 1.2 milestone is still in beta and is currently being tested. For me it can’t come soon enough, so if I can make the time I will try and contribute.

Just another welcome post….

Welcome to my blog, I was hoping to run my own WordPress blog, shamefully I haven’t found the time, at least this way I can start blogging now.

I have a few posts in draft covering the PHP NW 08 conference (which I will be attending). A Php UK Job board, PHP Positions. Plus the WordPress’ Iphone app which I discovered while creating this blog.
