Twitter: PS3F members edition

Why you should give Twitter a try..

Internet Commenter Business Meeting

Anyone who’s ever commented at a big internet forum or on an article will know these comments very well. Everything from ‘First’ to ‘gay’ to ‘n00b’ to spam and ‘pwned’. Even includes the Ipod Nano! This is NSFW. There is also a second part with LOLcats! Cat

How to display your Twitter status on your blog.

It all started in the support forum in a thread that had been going for months in which people were asking for wordpress to support one of the shiny Twitter status badges. However all the Twitter badges require flash which could pose a security risk and I agree with Automattic’s stance that they rather […]

Time for another podcast, yes, the ConsoleMonster podcast number 8 [or 7, part 2] is out now. I’m not too sure if I like it, James seemed to have been on a little Vendetta and left a lot of stuff in that I thought was going to be removed! But, of course I’m only joking […]

Hi, my name is Cat and this is my blog. I haven’t blogged in a while and I’m not really too sure why. I guess it’s partially due to me realising just how much more I complained, realising that I don’t have much to talk about and that I didn’t have much time. So what’s […]

Forums, good or bad?

Picking up on a post BIG D made on his blog, I’ve lately been wondering about the meaning of forums and what comes with it. Some may also remember my previous posts about forums: “10 Things that annoy me about people on internet forums” and “How many forum members does it takes to change a […]


A post made by drmike in the support forums made me realise that I haven’t logged into my Nationstates account in a very long time.
