Some Small Changes

Because of my love for you all, I find myself unable to allow this site to stand still. Therefore, I have made some small changes to the site.

Three of them in fact. Can you see what they are?

Answer is below the fold…….

Ok, they are small changes and are fairly easy to see, with a wee bit of scrollling.


Firstly and secondly, I removed the LQ Podcast player. It didn’t really fit the site and I was fairly unhappy with it.   And i have replaced it with the Technorati stuff as per the screenshot. The search will take you to a Technorati search result page – I’ve tested it and it works.

Thirdly, at the bottom of the sidebar, I have added a thing for you to rate the speed of the site load. It links in with a Google map API site so you can see where others have rated it from and, presumably, you can see where the link speed is terrible.


So far there have been 2 people rating the speed and I’m one of them, so feel free to click away.

Anyway, thanks for reading and this is all part of the ever evolving site.

  1. Hey Ray,

    I like the changes! I gave the site loading time 5/5, by the way (it’s one of the fastest loading sites on my connection) πŸ˜›

    [off topic] Just got off playing CS:Source… Do you think they’ll port that game and Steam to Linux if we get enough people to beg them? It’s worth a try πŸ˜€

  2. Excellent on both counts!

    I think that eventually CS:Source and Steam will get ported – I would imagine that the programmers are *nixers to varying degrees. It’s all down to cost though – rather than all those online petitions I eep seeing links to, gamers need to email the company directly and en masse and try to change their mind that way.

  3. Exactly. It was a demand for a Linux dedicated CS:Source server that caused the developers to port it to Linux, so if we get enough gamers to contact Valve asking for a port we’re likely to be able to do it – it’s not like there’s much work being done on CS:S these days anyway. However, as you said, this really would need to be done en masse – a handful of people isn’t good enough.

    We must recruit followers! πŸ˜€

  4. We need to stop these online petitions and get back to actual emailling. I don’t play the game myself, but if it can work once it can work for other games.

  5. Wow, anyone notice most of the blogs on that BlogTopSites website? Very interesting reading material, especially the current number one spot.. πŸ˜›

  6. Heheh – I hadn’t really noticed that. Goes to show the adage is still true: sex sells. πŸ˜†

    Oddly enough, porn is still the most profitable business model on the internet. Looks like Scott Adams was right πŸ™„

  7. Mmmmm.. P0rn! πŸ˜›

  8. mmmm indeed :-X

    Shame the big emoticon pack messes things up, there are a few useful ones there πŸ™‚
