Today I decided to upgrade my 18 month old Sony Ericsson K750i mobile, to a more up-to-date K800i. It sports the usual features, including 3G and some other shite I'll never use. But what did interest me most was the 3.2 mega pixel camera - outdoing the measly 2mp affair on the K750i.
However, along with a decent Cybershot camera the phone also features email and RSS! So not only can I take pictures in great detail, but I can also check my email and the various RSS feeds from around the web. Currently I've got the BBC headlines synced to the phone, along with the comments from this very blog and bit-tech.net's front page.
So, if anyone replies to this, I'll most likely know about it on my phone first, instead of via an email notification or from me navigating to the site itself.
If you're bored this Christmas holiday, feel free to send my phone an email, using the address email@example.com - it couldn't get any easier! If I could be arsed, I can set it up to allow me to blog from the phone itself, but I prefer using a full-sized keyboard for these ramblings...
Tonight I finally got round to (w)rapping up all the presents for the family. It was all completed within an hour or so, which makes me on par with Snoop Dogg in terms of (w)rapping. As Simon once said, we're lyrical commandos...

Over the past week I've been messing around with CSS - for styling webpages. Slickhouse and several other projects of mine all use CSS, but only for the styling of the content, not for styling the layout. However, all this will soon change, as tables are bad mmmmmmkay!
Many sites on the 'net criticise tables as a means of layout. So now I'm embarking on the real deal - CSS for layout.
And the best resource for doing so is this site from a web designer based in Australia. I thought I'd pass on the link for those that are interested in it. Expect some pretty looking pages sometime soon...
Christmas is just 11 days away, which means December is disappearing extremely quickly. It feels like only yesterday that I sat down to turkey and sprouts, along with pigs in blankets.
Fortunately I seem to have finished my Christmas shopping - 90% of which was completed online, using sites such as Amazon and eBay.
Unfortunately I appear to have a lot less in my bank at this time, compared to any other month. But I'm guessing everyone else is in the same situation. Surely a lottery win wouldn't do me any harm?

If you hadn't already noticed that the current version of slickhouse.com is 5, then this wont really interest you - so move along.
My mini-itx project has had a setback or two, in that the motherboard is proving to be faulty and is going for an RMA this week. But once it is up and running, I'll be using it as a test webserver at home. Which means I can develop things at home and test them out, prior to it going live. The first project I aim to use the webserver for will be version 6/7 of slickhouse.com - which will be fully dynamic. I aim to hand-code a blog, dynamic pages, upload/download features and much more - but as I'll be starting from scratch, I don't want it live until I know it all works.
I'll post a project log of the hardware soon and a summary of the webserver itself.
