Chromium Edge is actually pretty cool!

It was a big step for step for the boys and girls in Redmond. They acknowledged that Microsoft Edge had fallen out of favour – in a big way. The take-up of the new, modern browser was slow to begin with, and then stuttered out completely. Enterprise users were finding it hard to get users…



The never ending quest for the right domain name…

Another few months goes by and once again I cannot decide on the right domain name. The journey to finding the perfect (and non-taken) domain name seems to be a long one – at least for me! After ruling out stevensands.co.uk for being too long and sandsit.uk for ring fencing purpose too much, I’ve decided…



Defining Masculinity. Dads, how do you approach this?

During the initial pregnancy phase I was always under the impression that we would end up with a beautiful baby girl.

Thanks for leaving me on an outdated SQL, Microsoft…

Note to self – don’t trust doing things the ‘easy’ way. You may have used Microsoft Web Platform Installer yourself on Windows Server -it’s an easy option to get one or two click installs of the most common web apps. I used the wizard for my WordPress installation as I’m very lazy, and having done…



They always said don’t install WordPress on Windows IIS

Come back Apache, all is forgiven. So in the small (ok, mega-tiny) chance you visited this site earlier in the week you would have noticed it was slightly more populated then this. This is because I’ve had to re-install the darn thing from scratch again due to more issues with WordPress on IIS. Don’t get…
