New website in full swing.
It has been a roller coaster ride, but i'm very happy to say : The new website is UP ! It took me quite some time to figure everything out but as I am in the stages of ironing out all the final errors .. I'm very very pleased. Why the new site ? Well , for one because its much more interactive. The old site ( whose design inspired THIS site of course ) was very nice but did not offer enough in terms of interactivity, archiving options, searching options and so forth PLUS the fact it was very hard to manage. I needed a website I could manage from just about any operating system, and from just about any computer for that. Law and behold : On came JOOMLA. Joomla is a content management system , which , as i said in the podcast a few weeks ago, is a nice word for an unga-munga super-website-diesel-engine. It lets me do the design of the site, the managing of the content and basicaly everything else … on the web. No more uploads and downloads with ftp. Just a big administration console on the web and hopla ! But great thanx goes to Codemonkey Rob who pointed me towards this system and helped valiantly in setting it up. As I swung between victory and despair trying to figure out the basics of the system WITHOUT a manual (just pure deductive thinking dear Watson) He helped behind the 'screens' and did all the extra codework. So thank you codemonkey Rob !

Not only did the new Dr Who series start on BBC , I mysellf have become some sort of timelord. Going back and copy-pasting old posts from 2004 and 2005 to the new blog have sent me spiraling through time and space mysellf. Its wierd to read through ones own memories.. But fun nonetheless. Speaking of our favorite timelord : Here is the site
But : Knightwise gets around.
Coloring outsite the lines. in an interview about my good old days as a Dj. Be sure to check out Kevins work , as th is guy is a proffesional body painter. Okay you pervs, whipe dry those drooling chins, this guy is an artist ! (and a podcasting artist for that , so go have a looksee. Next up I had the pleasure of appearing on Jawbone Radio , one of my favorite non technology related podcasts. A fantastic hour of hilarious banter between Nora and Len who for some reason resemble Me and Nyana ( The Fantastic Wife living with the Uber-Geek) They did a live show this week, But due to the difference in timezones it was impossible for me to make it and call in . But we thought of a little solution, tune in and listen how hilarity ensued.
And to top it all of we got a fantastic review on Roosters Rail and we let the quote speak for itself : " …. and he has a podcast called the Knightcast. It is a great quality podcast; hell he uses VBR encoding at high bit rates – bandwidth must be cheap in Bulgaria! Plus I think his accent is cool. " Besides the fact that good old Dave thought I was Bulgarian , in my humble opinion I think he's right on the money.
