Bishops launches a mobizine.

Glad to see the larney private schools from our pasts are keeping up with the technology trends. Bishops in particular has an extremely well produced and well read OD magazine / School magazine that comes out quarterly.

NOW you can keep in touch with the exploits of the U14's - on your mobile. Nice.

Bishops has just launched the Bishops Mobizine. Get latest news, sports fixtures and results and an up to date weekly calendar delivered bi-weekly to your cell phone for fewer then 6 cents per edition!!!

For more details visit the mobizine website at www.mobizines.co.za.

To view the mobizine on your cell phone you will first need to set up the Bishops Mobizine on your cell phone. To do this sms MOBI BISHOPS to 36978. There is an initial, once off cost of R5 for this.

Most modern cell phones are able to get Mobizines and the Mobilzine website has a list of compatible phones. As a general rule if your cell phone has Java (games usually mean Java is installed) or is a Nokia smart phone (which…

Animator vs Animation (Bloody funny!)

Har Har! When designers "take" too much... Kinda like revenge on the mouse. Pixel crusaders. Whadda whadda. Watch it here - bloody funny!

Rapid Info... Yet another portal...

Let me say one thing. I am the FIRST person to applaud entrepreneurship. To have been part of something - and seen it cocked up - I understand the pain and dedication it takes to start something. The balls required to put you and your idea out there. So, I really hope this doesn't come acoss as a rant.

I'll play it out more as... advice.

Another content portal seems to have launched - with a pile of advertising behind it. Which is interesting, because from the look of the site - it looks like someone's personal labour of love. You've seen the TV ads... Rapid Info.



Righto.

1. When there are so many, so many open source Web 2.0 engines out there - why not use one of the sexy ones? (Hasn't Vinny Lingham just released one?) The site looks a little 2 years ago...

2. Your main audience, I gather, is still the Generatio Y'ers. 25+. Easy access to Internet. These guys and gals expect shiny, glinty, 3D, Ajax'y goodness. Not old style content lists.

3. What's the big d…

Dr Seuss and the art of crashing computers...

Har. Har.

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted at a very last resort,
and the access of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report.

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
and the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
and your data is corrupted ‘cause the index doesn’t hash,
then your situation’s hopeless and your system’s gonna crash!

If the label on the cable on the table at your house,
says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
but your packets want to tunnel to another protocol,
that’s repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall,
and your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss,
so your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse;
then you may as well reboot and go out with a bank,
‘cuz sure as I’m a poet, the sucker’s gonna hang!

When the copy of your floppy’s getting sloppy in the disk,
and the macro code instructions is causing unnecessary risk,
the…

Away...

I've been away for a while - apologies. But then again - surely it's better NOT to post than to post crap.

Our groundbreaking Enterprise 2.0 app for these guys - is live. Phew. Now I know why developers are odd people. The best stuff gets done at 2am.

I'll tell more about the new system when I can. The brand rules of "this" company are so tight, I don't think I can even print their name without fear of death. Hehe.

It has been SUCH a pleasure to work with intelligent clients. More on that later.
