MySpace Is Clogging The Pipes

Tuesday, June 13th, 2006

“Dare I point and accuse the sacred cow of CLOGGING UP THE PIPES?!”
My hand is up in the back of a large room. Hey me, pick me to ask what I’m thinking?!
Then it happens, I’m on the stage stumbling for my words. How do I say this? Dare I point and accuse the sacred cow […]

Cool Corey Comments On Image Ripping

Tuesday, June 13th, 2006

“So, please nigga, chill wiv th’ uvver high skool suckers and… [insert expletive]”
This is unfortunate but in separating out Corey’s latest reply to the fact he’s pissed I took an image off his site and replaced it with an ad for nortypig - duh it was feeding from my server - WordPress somehow deleted the […]

How To Trash Your Resume With MySpace

Monday, June 12th, 2006

“Any other sucker out there may find any word you’ve ever written”
Watch what you say online and who you talk to about whatever it is you’re thinking. How’s that for a paranoid big brother statement - but it’s true. It has always been true and will probably become more true as time progresses and the […]

How To Get Ad Space On MySpace

Friday, June 9th, 2006

“Plain blue text on white background at this point with the URLs for Norty Pig, Pig Pen and Pig Work”
Bandwidth sucking on Pig Pen is getting to be expensive thanks in a large part to MySpace and in a contributive part to several people out there with blogs who are just a bit too quick […]

And How Much Does A Blog Design Cost?

Thursday, June 8th, 2006

“Rule three: If you aren’t willing to pay that much for a blog…”
On a roundabout route feeding at the RSS trough I happened to be looking in the recent bowels of the Blog Herald and found a gem. Chris Pearson asks How Much Should A Design Cost? Good question. Like Chris I’ve had many phone […]

End Of Week 13 And Exam Ho

Friday, June 2nd, 2006

“I’ve found two to three units are just enough to keep me interested”
First, as a post mortem on this first semester, I’ll have to say that never ever will I only do one unit again unless I’m working full time. Its got a way of not having any emergency, not being challenging enough, and in […]

“The jobs on the whiteboard number six and growing”
If you’re wondering what’s been going on at Norty Pig lately - well its not like there isn’t a lot of work sitting on the whiteboard waiting to be done. And due to overwork in the early part of the semester I only had one unit and […]

If You Do Not Want To Be Linked To…

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2006

“The primary function of Pig Work is to ’share’ information”
Slashdot linked to an article this morning over on Plagiarism Today - The New Plagiarism - which refers to the practice on some blogs of using large quotes on a frequent basis in articles. The crux really being those blogs who have more blockquotes in there […]

The Blog Market - ROI?

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

“I’m not being evil by questioning this one - I’m being a businessman”
Can anyone explain to me the ROI of buying a blog? No that’s not a fair question, what I mean is from a business perspective if I were to outlay what I consider a large amount of cash - not that I would […]

Accidental Deletion Of Comments

Friday, May 19th, 2006

“I’m so used to mass deleting spam that I hit spam by accident”
With the number of spam hitting my domains I could be excused for missing a valuable ‘real person’ comment over on Pig Pen or having it chewed in the spam filter. But something happened this morning which worries me a bit - I […]
