Back To Work



back to work

I left my desk and Bangkok last Wednesday heading up north to Udon Thani with the family to celebrate New Year.

A good time was had by all, warm welcomes all round, good food, plenty of beers and cheers as we rang in 2021 with the extended family at auntie’s place.

A day at the pub, a day messing around in the garden and a day sat doing sod all is how it panned out.

It was a much-needed break away from it all.

During my time away much happened with the spread of covid leading to a bunch of new restrictions from the BMA and the government.

I did install the WordPress Android app and could easily connect to the website admin area but for reasons unknown, it just wouldn’t do any updates. I tried logging in via the Chrome app but that was a dead-end too so it was impossible to update the website with the latest news.

However, I did do dozens of updates on social media and was in touch with my contacts in Bangkok to keep readers and followers up to date as best I could given that I find it a real struggle to do any sort of work from a phone.

The odd social media update with a photo of a pint and a burger is fine, full-on news is another thing.

I don’t care what anybody tells me, a phone just can’t do what a desktop computer can and thankfully that is what I am using to type this.

Back at my desk, back at work, and all my favourite tool are just a click away.

Normality has returned.

Technical Troubles



In the process of making a few changes to the front and backend of Stickboy 2.0 it would seem that every upgrade or fix results in numerous breakages.

The most frustrating of them all is the PHP cache that won’t automatically clear leaving visitors thinking there have been no updates since their last visit when there probably have been.

A temp fix for readers is to refresh the homepage in your browser and Voilà! All the latest updates will appear.

Hopefully, the tech folks will have this fixed over the weekend.

As for all the other small snags, they will be fixed soon. Fingers crossed.
