News Snippet: Mythbuster Kari Byron is Pregnant

February 25th, 2009

News just off the press direct from Mythbuster Adam Savage: Girl Geek Cutie Kari Byron is pregnant: there’s no word yet as to when the kid will be joining the Mythbusters team or in what capacity (Buster replacement or team member).

There’s a video available (of the “official announcement”: not a “making of”! – oooh, you are awful!)

Snippet: It is two cups, one ball – not…

February 25th, 2009

Why oh why when I was writing a couple of paragraphs about probability, did I not write “there are two cups and one ball…” but instead typed “there are two girls and one cup…”: what was my mind thinking???

Blogging: New blog design v5?

February 24th, 2009

Well, this at least the 4th major redesign this blog has had (previous ones being: January 2005, August 2003, June 2003) and it’s the one I’ve spent least amount of time on, but looks the nicest in my opinion.

I’m using a combination of TheBuckMaker’s Aerodrome theme with the WPTouch iPhone theme providing the iPhone theming (with the compatibility being checked by using the How to emulate iPhone (Change user agent) in Safari and Firefox tips for testing on the desktop). I’m also utilising the Twitter for WordPress plugin to pull my @rchiswell twitter feed and SEO No Duplicate for search engine canonical links. I’m also using the WordPress plugins WP-PageNavi, Trackback Validator, Sociable and Chris Black’s digg widget.

Hopefully, not only has it provided easier access to the rest of my online presence, but it has also made the site a lot easier on the eye and helps you access the information you came here for quicker and easier (although feel free to read any of my ramblings which takes your fancy).

Fun: Two plus Two does equal Five

February 24th, 2009

Via Science for SEO comes proof that 2 + 2 = 5. What is this magical proof? Well, it’s simple and something you can try at home:

  1. Get two pieces of rope or string
  2. Put two knots in each piece of string
  3. You now have 2 knots and 2 knots
  4. Tie those pieces of string together
  5. How many knots have you now got?

I didn’t say it was good!
