Feeding the weblog

July 3rd, 2007 · No Comments

Now that Feedburner has been bought by Google, I’ve signed up with them so that I can see how few people subscribe to my RSS feed. In theory, this should make absolutely no difference to anyone who is subscribing to the feed, since the current address automatically redirects to the new Feedburner address – but [...]

…and all done

October 31st, 2006 · 6 Comments

Welcome to the new Mssv! The most obvious change is that the design is different (easier to read, I hope) and that all three weblogs have now been merged together. I’m glad I tried the four-year long experiment of three different weblogs, but ultimately it didn’t work due to the fact that I only have [...]

Under Construction…

October 30th, 2006 · No Comments

Obviously, things have changed around here. I’m still in the midst of tweaking things and doing the proper changeover from my old blog (which precipitated all of this by – apparently irrevocably – deleting a huge swathe of useful comments), but things should be all finished in the next few days. Look forward to updates [...]

No comment moderation on Massive

May 29th, 2006 · No Comments

In order to celebrate a new article in the ‘Massive’ section (it was going to be in this column but I thought it deserved more), I’ve turned off the registration mechanism there. Previously, you had to sign up for Typekey in order to post a comment. I did this to prevent spam from clogging things [...]

A New Post

October 24th, 2005 · 1 Comment

Regular readers may have noticed some subtle change in the appearance of my weblog – yes, I have in fact posted a new article in the ‘massive’ section. It’s not very long, but people into alternate reality games might be interested. Basically, it’s an edited version of the extended abstract I sent into the GDC [...]

Normal service will be resumed

February 23rd, 2005 · No Comments

I know what you’re thinking. “What the hell is this article about coach services in Oxford doing on a weblog that is supposed to be about massively multiuser online entertainment, biology and space, in that order?” Well, what can I say – I take the coaches a lot, and along with the Indian Visa article, [...]

Where’s Adrian?

April 8th, 2004 · 1 Comment

A surprising number of people have been asking why I haven’t updated my site for so long. Here are the reasons: I’ve been wrapping up my current 4 month project which is researching the basis of vision in mice (using three different experimental paradigms), planning my trip to a conference in Florida, working on Project [...]

One of the great things about living in a university town like Oxford or Cambridge is that interesting events and lectures are being held almost every day, and they’re usually free to attend. Most of the events that I go to, I hear about through friends or mailing lists, but of course there are many [...]

Occasionally* I have reason to look at my website logs and referrer lists. These tell me how many people visit this site and where they’ve come from. So, for example, I can tell if a page is linking to me if it has referred visitors to me. Every now and again I see that people [...]

‘One of the best veteran bloggers’ (scroll to the bottom of the page) – that’s what I am kids, according to the NetGuide NZ magazine. A while back I got an email from some reporter asking for weblogging tips for a magazine. I was in half a mind to delete the email because it looked [...]
