In Four Texts

I remember a finer, golden age
   When all things could be clearly understood
 And callow youth would never cheek a sage
   On the wisdom of elders, dare not intrude.
    No more beautiful a tongue has been heard
    Than English, foil of Shakespeare and Milton!
 Treat with reverence each and every word
   Care for your language like a son, my son.
Keep it tied up, dried out, trapped in a cell!
     Evrythng evolves, the future wont wait
   2 l8! LOL! lang is aliV, 3 & well
     Format ltd so Kidz snd txts that
       sonnets / luv / both express
       in 160 chars or less.

Website Updates

I’ve updated the Practical Useful website to WordPress version 2.3.3. All seems to have gone well!

I have also set up practicaluseful.com to be my OpenID identifier by forwarding OpenID requests on to my MyOpenID.com account. I did this by following Sam Ruby’s excellent instructions.

I plan to add OpenID as a comment mechanism on this site, as soon as I can find a plugin that works and doesn’t break my Askimet spam filter.

I note as well that PracticalUseful.com has been my main personal website since January 2003 meaning I’ve flitted past the five year anniversary without even noticing it!

Fixed it!
