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.
