The 999th… and the 1st

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 12 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 12 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 12 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

This is the 999th post on this site… and also the first to be posted
by mobile phone. I’m not sure what that means, but it’s certainly
proof of the mobile blogging concept for sjhoward.co.uk, and (I like
to think) shows that even all this time on, I’m still trying to
innovate.

And, for mobile phone fanatics, make sure you watch this space for new
mobile content coming soon. See the new mobile link at the top of
every page – this brings together the current mobile services
together, and is the place where new ones will be added.

So, the next post will be 1,000… I guess I’m going to have to come
up with something pretty special for that!

This 997th post was filed under: Site Updates.

I know the line breaks are annoying… they’re a side-effect of posting by mobile that I haven’t yet ironed out!
