Quiet Summer - Back on form

By Andrew Faulkner on August 30th, 2007.

A quick informal FadBlog post.

We’ve had a fairly quiet summer this year at fadtastic, content-wise. It was partly deliberate due to the small matter of me getting married. Rest assured though, we’ve got some exciting content coming your way this Autumn (or Spring or whatever for those not in the …

Downtime - Blank Screen

By Andrew Faulkner on July 20th, 2007.

Apologies for those that visited in the last 6-7 hours. It appears most people saw a blank screen. I’d like to say it was a clever statement of some description, but it wasn’t.

Anyhow, we’re back to normal now and sorry for the inconvenience.

IE6 Bug fixes

By Andrew Faulkner on July 4th, 2007.

A quick update on the IE6 issues we’ve been having (sidebar going crazy.) The issue is now fixed as far as I can tell. Please make a comment below if you’re still having trouble.

Back from hols

By Andrew Faulkner on June 25th, 2007.

Hello, I’m back. Hurrah, I here you cry.

I see things resumed as normal round here while I was away so I’d like to thank Matt Davies for fadsitting (and for a great Apple redesign post.) Without him, you’d probably be staring at a gazillion comments about Viagra.

Away and Bug Squashing

By Andrew Faulkner on June 12th, 2007.

As you may have seen from the wee banner at the top, I’m on a break from Thu 14 Jun - Mon 25 Jun so things may get a little untidy/stale around here. It’s OK though, fadtastic will function as normal under the capable hands of Matt Davies aka Mr …

Keeping You Updated: 3rd June 07

By Andrew Faulkner on June 3rd, 2007.

A quick update on what’s changed around the site. I’m busy improving the usability and user experience of fadtastic (an ongoing project really) and thought you may like to know what’s changed.

Asides (members only - why not sign up?) are now more logical,  linking straight to the source. Permalinks/comments are …

RSS Feed Now Works As Expected

By Andrew Faulkner on May 10th, 2007.

A quick update on the broken RSS issue. For some reason or another, the problem stemmed from a plugin (totally unrelated to RSS as well - not easy to find!) All should now be well. If you are experiencing problems still, then simply let us know.

Apologies for anyone …

Thanks (again), Akismet!

By Andrew Faulkner on May 7th, 2007.

I got a nice little note from Akismet today:

Akismet has caught 50000 for you since you installed it.

Since November, it has stopped 40,000 spam comments (220 per day approximately) and appears to be very accurate. I can’t thank the creators enough - without it, this community would have died …

Landmarks in traffic and broken RSS

By Andrew Faulkner on May 3rd, 2007.

The start of May saw the following:

Since we changed domains to (Jun 06 from memory), we have had 5 Million hits.
In the same period, we’ve racked up 1 Million visits. I thought about putting a “You are the one millionth visitor” pop-up on the site, but then came to …

Theme Compatible with Wordpress 2.1

By Andrew Faulkner on April 17th, 2007.

Just a quick update. The fadtastic theme is now compatible with Wordpress 2.1. Thanks to all of you who emailed and pointed out that the Blogroll caused naughtyness in the latest Wordpress release.
