New Blog, syndicated accounts for LJ-ers

It mightn't have occurred to you good people, but I don't blog here very often any longer. This is partly because I don't really have much to say, and additionally because I've moved to my own personal blog, in my own personal fluffy webspace.

Where's it at? http://justcameron.com

Those of you who use a feed reader to get your news and subscribe to blogs can decide which feed you want for yourself (Wordpress has feeds for most things, just tack /feed/ on the end of the url, there's also /feed/atom/ for those of us who like standards.)

For the dedicated lj-ers amongst you, add cameron_atom to your friends list. It appears to show everything as posted just then because the syndicated account was only just created (cheers to uniquewonders for that!) I'm also not sure how it'll handle me editing stuff on my blog, and it doesn't seem to like the whole timezone conversion stuff very much, but ah well :)

If you want to comment, please go to my blog and write your comment there, I'll get notified about it that way. If you just comment on livejournal then I probably won't know about it - there's no way I can figure to subscribe to comments on a syndicated account :(

The LJ category on my blog, and thus the feed and syndicated account are designed with you people in mind and I'll try to keep the geekyness down to "high" (as opposed to "uber") - if you want to see every post I make to my blog, you can use justcameron_syn (one of my failed attempts.)

Sorry I didn't get around to this earlier.

Enjoy :)

Welcome to Cameron's Journal

music: Rock, pop, dance, country, it all goes.

Hello and welcome to my journal. If you're not familiar with Livejournal (the site this journal is hosted on) then the first thing you need to know is that I have many friends only entries. This means that only people I add to my friends list can see them, and is so that I can post photos of (for example) the family car, without having to edit/blur our the number plate or whatever. Apologies that it's yet another site to register an account for, it sucks, but you can tell it to remember your pw in a cookie and then you won't have to log in again :)

So yeah - PLEASE, register for an account if you want to read my journal in it's fullness. I suggest you select the free option as it doesn't contain any ads, but whatever works for you. If you don't have a blog yourself, you could use your new account to start your own :) Once you've got an account, add me to your friends' list and comment here and if I know you, I'll add you to mine and you can start reading!

www is depreciated

Jun. 30th, 2006 | 01:28 am

Why should you have to type www. at the beginning of all your urls? It's pointless. When you send mail to someone, you don't have to send it to someone@mail.hotmail.com, it just does it automatically. Since web browsers are configured to use http:// and prepend it to the location/address bar automatically, the www. is pointless.

As such, anyone trying to access http://flashrovers.com, http://rowallan.superheapsgood.com or http://justcameron.com on a url with www., will have the www. automatically removed.

This is in accordance with a class B rating at http://no-www.org

Rowallan website - all systems go!

Jun. 30th, 2006 | 12:40 am

The Rowallan website is back! And better than ever. Thanks to a little help and LOTS of twiddling, it's sleeker, sexier, valid xhtml & css, the urls are cruft free and the old urls even redirect to the new ones! Very proud.

I'm off to Port Noarlunga tomorrow morning, and I haven't even bought bundy yet! Eeep! See you all briefly in 3-4 days.

Engineering

Jun. 21st, 2006 | 11:45 pm

I really like taking stuff apart with my pocket knife. Yesterday I took the oven apart so mum could clean it. For some considerable time she's been leaning over the whole door (it actually comes off) and not taking the sides out and it really wasn't all that clean. The gap between the bottom of the door and the oven (not actually in the oven) was filthy. I've twiddled around inside our pc a few times, and also the pc of my second uncle or whatever he is, without actually breaking anything :) Understanding how things work is really cool. Kinda reminds me of working on the Suzuki at Blinman. I still don't know enough about the insides to be able to fix something deep inside the engine, but we've taken apart the radiator, the carburetter, the air intake, etc.

This brings me around to the purpose of this post. I've been volunteered to be the Chief Engineer at the Bogong Rover Chalet. I'm not quite sure how I managed to be saddled which such responsibility.. presumably because there's only a dozen or so people going... but anyway it means I'm in charge of running the diesel generators and the wood-burning hot water system, Theodore. I don't know much about either of them - I saw them last time I was there, but didn't operate them, so hopefully the documentation that should be heading my way sometime will help and of course there'll be plenty of people to help me learn when I'm there. I'm really quite looking forward to it. Additionally, I might get to sleep in the nobs room, the only one in the whole place with carpet :)
