A Visit from the Spiders and Pingback Mountain

I actually saw this giant spider in Liverpool - I will put my pics on

Some days it’s hard to come up with a post.  I just go where the mood takes me generally, and hopefully present it in an original way.  I’ve become a bit bogged down lately, and I think I need to get some more art into this art based blog.  I am still sticking to my one post a day though, and although some of them are short, and mostly spontaeneous, occasionally I do try to do a longer one.  I’ve now made 382 posts.  I do try to stick to one subject per post, though I could stick loads in one post and let the ‘spiders’ (robots) crawl all over it, picking out key words, I prefer not to because then it becomes a kind of tag farm and I’m just using certain tags for the sake of it.  No thanks, seen loads of these and I certainly don’t want my blog to become one!

Boomerang - OK I couldn't get a pic of an actual Pingback but you get the idea? it comes back to you

As well as the ‘spiders’ doing their bit (to the good I may add), there’s the Pingbacks’ to contend with.  I’ve been advised to keep these, though there are rather a lot, as when I link back to my other posts, they come thick and fast.  Sometimes when I read my ‘comments’ email, I think I’m seeing double when I see my own words coming back at me, lol!  It’s like mirror writing!!

Here’s one of my hero’s: he used to live in a room full of them, lol!  (sorry but that was all I could come up with for a ‘Mirror’ pun)  not really a video, just the tune. 


What’s with the Glitches?

glitches always lurking where you least expect them

glitches always lurking where you least expect them

Just a quick one tonight, hopefully glitch free….  According to Wikpedia a Glitch is a short lived fault,common in computers: let’s hope it is.   I have got into the habit of scheduling my posts, usually about 20 past midnight.  Well I did the same as usual last night.  I was doing other work on my p.c. noticed the time and thought I’d check that my post had come on.  But it hadn’t.  Well, I did all sorts: altered the time, tried to unschedule the post, and all to no avail!  Eventually, I copied and pasted to a new post…..that its where the story should end, but not a bit of it!  For when I looked today,I found that the post had come on TWICE, both versions (titles slightly different).  I don’t know what’s going on.  Sometimes part of the text comes out massive, although I make sure it is all  uniform.  Could it be the tags I asked myself?  But no. I always make sure they have comas between each one and no spaces.  Still, over and upwards, so they say….
