Who would have thought? I just noticed that Thomo’s Hole had 95 followers – not a bad effort over the 13 years it has been a blog rather than a webpage. It occurred to me I should celebrate the 100th follower when that follower comes along … if I notice them 😊
I can see I shall need to lift my game and post more content more frequently, at least to speed the 100th along. Perhaps it is time for some Philippines travel tales? Certainly I will spend some more time adding to the YouTube channel – very low cost production but it seems people like to see what was in the parcel.
There are a couple of items that need to be fixed here as well and some odd things that cannot. For example, there are many, many comments from 30 November 1999. That was the result of adding a widget to WordPress that gave me greater control over comments. I did that when Thomo’s Hole was hosted inside coldie.net but as we (or rather Jeffro the no-longer-a-boy-but-still-IT-genius) decided to release that web space. I moved Thomo’s Hole back into the WordPress domain. With the low cost of cloud these days and as I am getting close to the maximum storage of images here in WordPress it is time to assess whether to move the Hole again soon.
There are also a few links that are missing back in the older pages – well, the links are not so much missing as more the target of the links is. This applies to pictures and documents. I am slowly working through the repair of them as I discovered a storage cache of my stuff that I had forgotten about (happens, doesn’t it?).
OK, so coming up – more book reviews, more incoming parcels from the UK (at least four more for me), and I will spend some time opening the Fujimi 1/3000 ship boxes, one by one, and look at the contents with you all.
In the meantime, back to work … need to pay for the toys somehow!
