This talk is about Google Docs & Spreadsheets and is pretty interesting. It seems to me that the introduction of Google Gears means that we should be expecting an offline version of Docs & Spreadsheets sometime soon. When this happens online documents will be able to be edited in browsers even without an internet connection and Google will be one step closer to taking over the world! Seriously though – Google Docs & Spreadsheets is really good tool and looks like it is going to get even better in the near future.

Redirecting http:// to http://www.

Seems that this causes problems for people so I thought I could pop it up here as a useful resource. Use the following code and replace “domain.com” with your domain e.g. jonoellis.co.uk. Place all of the code in your .htaccess file and http://jonoellis.co.uk will redirect to http://www.jonoellis.co.uk.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [R=permanent,L]

Original idea for fly poster removal

Glasgow city council are going around sticking stickers over fly posters “cancelling” gigs and events. This is a pretty innovative idea but now that the news is out I guess that it will have less effect!
