Oops I’m a Moan!

I just noticed, out of all my blog categories this one ‘On a Positive Note!’ is the most neglected with a paltry 2 posts. So before anyone gets the impression that a man with my undoubted positive mental attitude and zest for life and happiness is nothing but a cynical old moany fart, I should talk about something positive.

Alexa Page Rank

I’ve been keeping an eye on my Alexa Page Rank lately (like a website top of the pops list!) and it seems to be lower every day. Droppin’ like a stone it is and I’m chuffed. A few months ago I think I was about 5 million or something and right now I’m 363,800th most popular site on the internet for both this blog and the main Reverb site. I reckon its all down to blogging and my increasing amount of incoming links. Still happy days!

Google Rank Alexa Rank

Yay – Finally got off level 3 in Google rank for the main Reverb Studios site! Makes me feel that little bit more important now that I’m 4. Also, since last week when my site was about the 1,000,050th most popular/important site on the internet according to Alexa, I’m now the 589,662nd most important – not sure what I’ve done to rise nearly half a million points in one week?? I might drop down again tomorrow but for the moment I’ll bask in the glory. Go on ye good thing..!!

Broadband Stupidity in Leitrim

Here I go with yet another broadband moan. The slight glimmer of hope I had that a new local wireless company might be able to rescue me from the insanity and unreliability of O2’s broadband(ish) dongle has been extinguished by the stupidity and paranoia of Leitrim County Council. Continue reading Broadband Stupidity in Leitrim

Replying to Emails

One of my many pet hates in life is having my emails ignored. To me its just as rude and unforgivable as someone who ignores you as you stand in front of them and attempt to communicate verbally. Considering this is the year 2008 and email technology has been with us for decades, there’s no excuse in my book for ignoring a person’s carefully though out and time consuming email. Continue reading Replying to Emails

O2 Mobile Broadband Moan

I knew as soon as I started to tell people how fantastic O2’s new mobile ‘broadband’ (not) dongle thing was that I had put a curse on myself. I’ve just moved to a new house in the wilderness of Leitrim and obviously my first concern was who would give me broadband in such a dark and lonely place so far from civilization. Continue reading O2 Mobile Broadband Moan

Should I celebrate Christmas!?

Another Christmas is just around the corner and the usual crap songs, decorations, routines and sales drives have been rolled out and I can’t help but feel dreary & uninterested – more so each year. Of course I can’t display this apathy or I’ll be accused of not getting into the ‘spirit’. Like any child, Christmas was always special for me, something magical and different and I remember hanging onto it for as long as I could. Even when I found out that the main man wasn’t real around 12/13 I pretended he was! Continue reading Should I celebrate Christmas!?
