Tumbleweed, and some links.

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to the RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

We seem to have been neglecting Rotacoo recently, having posted nothing of worth for the whole of June & July. I shan’t bore you with the usual excuses of work, holidays and commitment to Google Sightseeing.

Some interesting things that I’ve wanted to post somewhere:

  • Varnish Cache: The saviour of Google Sightseeing’s load issues, the Varnish “HTTP accelerator” (or reverse-proxy) needs more exposure for WordPress bloggers outgrowing their hosting platforms.

  • On Sunday afternoon I conducted a short poll of those carrying books around the baggage reclaim area of Heathrow airport. The results were 9 Harry Potter to 4 “other” books. No surprise then that it’s already the best selling book of all time.

  • Giant rubber duckie: I love oversized things as “art”, and this Rubber Duckie is possibly the best ever. Please someone get an aerial shot for Google Earth.

  • Tomorrow is Oxford Geek Night 3 which I’ve been looking forward to since May. As an added bonus the first drink is on Google!

    Wow! The Oxford Geek Night has a pretty good selection of big name speakers. Makes me wish I was a bit further South…
