Where am I now?

with 2 comments

It’s been quite a while since I last blogged on, so I thought it was time for a quick update.


Since my last post when I announced I was moving to I have moved my personal blog again, to

It has transformed into more of a journal, with less techincal stuff, reviews and guides and more of a diary. It details all the things going on in my life at the moment, which happen to be quite a lot!

I’ve finished Uni, although I still have an exam and piece of coursework to retake.

I’ve also started to go through the motions of setting up my own business, named Fishbitt. The website is not quite finished yet although it should be up within a week or so.

A few days ago I launched, a blog/site following my journey into Ruby on Rails.

I’m pretty pround of the theme, which I made myself and I’ll be posting there daily too. If your just starting on RoR or already riding the Rails then check it out.

I’m still using Flickr too, almost up to one thousand pictures.

Some other useful links of mine are on my ClaimID which has links to all my online profiles and any sites I have something to do with, be it designer, contributer or just one of my domant domains.

Quick look at the stats shows I’ve had 100,000 views since I last posted here, there are still quite a few people subscribed to the feed and I’ve had 3,420 spam comments!!

Just woke up and realised that i have 7 days to finish my three reports so this blog might have to take a bit of a backseat for a week.

Getting my hair cut today so expect a poseriffic picture on flickr if i like it!

Still have a stinking cold which is slowly moving to my chest, not good. If i get a chest infection, which i normally do i could be out of action for a week or more. Damn Asthma!

Over on we got our first days stats in, 8700 visits and 13700 page views yesterday… WOW! I'm also informed that we have about 260 people subscribe via RSS, thanks very much to everyone whos been reading and commenting on it, we have another authors starting today: Comaboy and should have Leeanna from Geekplus and Kai from starting at the weekend.

Its all go!

Time for my big announcement….

Together with Dan from Technocrat, I've been working on a new Geek Team Blog. I'll be posting most of my geek and technical stuff over there and will become more of a personal blog concentrating on Photography, my life, blogging and more general things.

We have a nice handful of great bloggers on the Team including Jeff from Teknokool and Jens from Zhooibaal with more coming within the week.

We did have a geek girl but she seems to have disappeared, so if any of you ladies are up to the challenge then drop me an email.

Does this mean the end of Atariboy at wordpress?


I've taken to blogging like a duck to a special duck filled blogging pond, along with fixing computers, blogging is something that I feel I'm really quite good at. is a way to expand my blogging and seperate it out into geek stuff and photography and more personal things so that the geeks can just read the geeky stuff if they like.

We have also added a select amount of adsense, none on the front page, just if you go to read some of the more indepth articles, so hopefully I can earn a little money from blogging as well.

So check it out, the theme is the only thing left to do, we are planning a custom theme made especially for

We'd love some feedback, comments and suggestions, there are lots of posts coming over the next week or so, hopefully you'll see us on the digg front page!
