The Hump Day Five (16-July-2014)

The Hump Day Five is on Red Alert this week, getting all Google-y powerful on music in the cloud, Leftovers, and Ping Pong Mania. 1 Started watching a new TV show a couple of weeks back called “The Leftovers”. If you haven’t haven’t seen or heard of it, the premise is quite simple. On 14-October at […]

The Hump Day Five (25-June-2014)

On Wednesday Trefor.net’s Editor-in-Chief serves up The Hump Day Five, a weekly collection of short (and not so short) glimpses of the life in progress. 1 Bolting to meet My Missus for a Pay-For-Weekend-Well-Spent swim (the value of which we will immediately negate with a hearty follow-up Mexican lunch), and just realized that my mobile […]

Facebook is down – something went wrong

Something went wrong with Facebook. Facebook is down. I just got that message. Looking at Twitter it seems widespread. Is this news? In one sense it doesn’t matter in the least. Facebook is not mission critical to anyone. If you are a business you surely don’t rely on Facebook, do you? Ok so a few […]

One Out of 1,874,161

Over the weekend I received a Twitter request from someone unknown to me to participate in a dm (direct message) exchange. Figuring it at first to be some kind of scam or sales come-on I was just about to use TweetDeck’s “Block” function to keep the party from contacting me again when I noticed in […]

Death of a friend

I had a series of messages a couple of weeks ago from different social media contacts informing me of the death of a mutual friend. He became ill a month or so ago and whilst at one time they thought he might be recovering he went into a sudden decline and sadly passed away. This came as […]

Seeing more promoted tweets on Twitter

Don’t know about you but I’m seeing a lot more promoted tweets these days. There’s a sort of mobile oriented theme but presumably that’s just on the twitter client on my dog and bone. Interesting that Sage is pitched partly at startups. Maybe I’ve been tweeting using startup related keywords. Wouldn’t use Sage anyway. I […]

Many Happy Returns of the Onslaught

According to some algorithm or other deep in its cockles, Facebook reports that 79 people of the oh-so-fine folk I am connected to via that social media behemoth posted birthday wishes to my wall on Monday (which, yes, was my birthday). On top of that, after I posted acknowledgement and thanks for all of that […]

A Twitter death

I woke up in the middle of the night, took a spin round my phone and noticed that someone I followed on twitter had died. I had never met this guy but at one time he had been a fairly frequent tweeter and you got his whole life story. He was out of work with […]

Annoying Facebook ads

Facebook gets more annoying. Today I note the adverts presented for my eager consumption and click through. I am not interested in finding attractive women for men over fifty, especially when in the photo they look as if they are the same age as my daughter. Moreover I am happy enough with my teeth and […]

Snapchat – get down wiv da kids

Kid 2 introduced me to Snapchat. Must have been two summers ago when she was about to set off for uni. Other than very occasionally looking at her chats I ignored it. For one thing it doesn’t keep the photos/videos once sent. I like to keep the photos/vids. I’m a nostalgic. Recently I saw an […]

Immediacy

I’ve done most of my jobs. Stuff taken to tip, wood piled up “neatly” at bottom of garden, Kid 4’s bag emptied after skiing holiday (that one was worth a few brownie points I’ll tell you), roast beef prep done with veg peeled etc, broken light bulbs replaced. I’m sure there was more. It felt […]
