SmartThings arrived on the marketplace and was quickly backed by Samsung who proclaimed their idea of all things connected, and I mean really connected, not just a company selling their own connected items which didn’t talk to anyone else’s connected items. Suddenly SmartThings looked to be a really strong and viable choice to connect your

I’ve not been blogging that long, but one of my friends has been and it was Martin that turned me on to blogging with his cool site, and also on to MovableType (MT) itself. Since then I’ve only looked back to appreciate the fact that I got MT installed and setup before I got too far into the blogging experience.
It took me long enough to decide to buy the Honda S2000 GT, and when I did I decided to get some of the extras offered. While I was researching it I was thinking about the paintwork and keeping it clean, I would hand wax my old MR2 MKII every six months, and while it kept the lustre for a short while, without a lot of hard work I never really got it looking stunning, if you’ll excuse the use of the sales pitch, like the out of the showroom shine.
So I had a look at the products on offer to treat the paintwork and ensure the dirt didn’t stick so easily and found that Honda were offering the Jewelultra Diamondbrite process. I took that to the Honda UK Owners Club Forum to find out what current owners thought of it, and there was mixed reaction. Some said it was good, some said it was bad, and a lot were recommending other US products that meant a lot of hand waxing.
It was ages after that when I finally decided to buy the car, and while I was sitting there thinking about the cash I was about to part with I decided just to get it done. An extra £200 was just a fraction of the cost of the car, and if it did what it promised, well then it was worth it.
I’m quite new to blogging, what with the age of my site and my writing for the MovieBlog, and I’ve not long discovered the idea of RSS feeds – I still have to figure out how to put two blogs into one RSS file.
I found that while I was researching stories for the MovieBlog I was looking at about thirty other sites trying to read all the stories in the short time I had. Then there were the sites for my friends and the sites I just liked visiting for a read. It was all getting too much, and the researching was taking so long I never had time to write.
Then, somehow, I can’t remember exactly how, I came across the Bloglines site and discovered the joy of feeds.
