My blog is all spanky..

I'm tweaking and upgrading the blog at the minute. The main reason is that I wasn't happy with the way it was working, so I've made the site to do something it's not designed to do - which is to take blog entries and display them in a …

How to PhotoBlog

Blimey, it's a bit warm. At about quarter to five last night it was still a blistering 30 degrees C here in Merry Ole England. While I was having a nice boozy barbeque last night (along with the rest of the UK by the smell of it), it …

DOS Attack

Early this morning CoolSmartPhone was subject to a rather heavy Denial Of Service attack at around 4AM which lasted for 3 hours. The origins of this appear to be an AOL IP address at 172.216.224.73 which hammered our servers with tonnes of requests to...

Wow! You can now log in and STAY logged in!

UPDATE – Meanwhile, out in Iraq…

Downloads Comments Disabled – I’m Annoyed!

Are you a fan of TV Show 24?
