A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

Sphere Beta: Some inital comments

I have just jumped on to the Sphere Beta Program. I think it is okay but here are some basic feedback points:

I like the related Blogs more than I like the Blog post results. That is when I search for "AJAX" the posts that it brings back don't really interest me, but the blogs about AJAX do. I am not too sure that I can find what I want with a search [in blog posts at least] off just a couple of keywords. I don't know why! Maybe it is me

Things that I would like to see
  • RSS subscription of results
  • Results from - to ranges. Not just "in the last 4 months" I would like "not before 2 months ago" and "no later than 4 months"; that type of thing.
  • A search that says "find blogs post like this one" etc.
