Tech Support Here. Meh.
Other bands have people for this. I am those people for this band.
So anyway. For those that care, we've optimised the site as best we can, added some new social media links to our actual social media, removed the old 'hey tell everyone you know about everything we do ' buttons, and patched, and patched and updated.
I've also noticed a trend amongst the Open Sourcers and i can't blame'em, but many of the widgets we used to get for free now have a small price tag on them. It's worth it, but by the time you add a few widgets, well, Open Source don't mean Free :-)
I baulked at spending on one more widget to better integrate Google Calendar. It's embedded, it should work fine. But it seems slow. Sorry. Still working on that. Maybe I oughta buy that widget.
Oh right I almost forgot. the Marketing Department wants me to remind you that We're On Facebook and Twitter.
Yeah I know. I picked myspace too, but what the heck. Sorry JT
So, I mention it because:
- I mobile blog random stuff when we're on the move to FB because it's easier
- If we don't have your likes on FB we will simply cease to exist. No I mean it, we will just frickin vanish. Poof.
- I am not passively aggressively resisting the marketing department, I am resisting the concept that there should be 1 website that represents the world web experience. Besides which, I AM the Marketing Department
- If you follow us on Twitter you're just gonna see a shorter version of the stuff I post to FB because I Auto Linked them cos I am Lazy/Clever.
I should point out that no matter what daft barmy stuff I might say on this site, we aren't likely to get censored. Although to be fair, Rosie occasionally tweaks some of my more..interesting posts. But that's not the point.
We get that FB is what passes for mass single point communication in this age, but we don't discriminate based on what tribe you belong to on the web, tumblrs, grindrs, snapchatters, whatevs
No matter what tribe you belong to online, we're your friends in the stormcellar. If you hang out with us, then we're part of your tribe too :-)
Meanwhile I have to get back to optimising images and so forth.
