A new toy for our contributors: a (very poor) attempt at sticky notes for web and news pages. Still, apparently, it's the thought that counts... ;o)

Notes in content items


Too much to do, too little time (and no clue how to do it)...

Too much going on at the moment to get my head around, and even more I can't begin to work on because I just don't have time...

I wonder...

... if there's enough room on the homepage for "What is UPSU?" and "Take a tour of" links? There's certainly a good argument for both; how many students at the University of Portsmouth - or outside of it, for that matter - know that the Union is in fact two companies - UPSU and UPEL - and they do two very different jobs under the same roof, for largely the same target audience?

And also, while we're on the subject, how many people really know how huuuge a website is, and what it can offer students?

(Health warning: this post is very boring...)

The last couple of weeks, and this weekend especially, have been a geeky code-pushing time for me as I try to cram in some much-needed site development.

I don't like to blow my own trumpet, buuuut....

... here's the new Media homepage:

New UPSU Media homepage

As usual, send comments, suggestions, and reports of any factual errors to somebody else, 'cos I don't care (ok, I'm joking - contact me here if you need to :o).

Whoah whoah whoah whoah whoah - slow down a bit!

Do you ever have one of those days when everything's happening so fast it's impossible to take enough mental notes to remember something for later? I've been having one of those days weeks months, and things are showing little sign of slowing down any time in the near future.

Today, I have mainly been annoying everyone...

You know those days where you get comfy on the sofa and just, well, vegetate? I tend to do something similar at work - I just park up at the desk and start working through my Never Ending To Do List (TM). Ok, so it's not as relaxing, but I guess it helps to get things done.

A constructive day, housekeeping, Fabric's new compilation, and putting the cat out...

It's another late night, so it must be time for another rambling blog entry about "what I've dun lately". If you read this, I can guarantee you'll be bored... ;o)

This is going to be a bumper blog entry of all the really really boring stuff I've done this week altogether, so you only have to "ignore" one thing instead of loads ;o)

Coming soon - Pure:FM direct from

FM now and next
I've just had a quick chat with Carl, Pure:FM's resident web guru, and he's beginning work on a brilliant little pop-up Pure:FM player.

This will mean no more having to hunt around Purefmdotcom to find out how to listen to their shows; you'll just have to click a link on any UPSU page (in the "now and next" box - pic somewhere on the right there) and away you go.

Videos for everyone - add YouTube vids to your blogs has a new toy, which (I hope) will make it a lot easier to add a video to your blog, and easier for us pixel geeks to add videos to news and web pages.

Find out more here, and to see a really bad impression of Richard Hammond advertising a boot sale (... or something ...).
