Peter Checksfield starts new blog and gives me feeds trouble.

Monday mornings are never easy times to face errant internet problems, in fact it sometimes seems here that the computers that have had Sunday off have Monday morning problems of my own.

This morning I was pleased to notice that Peter Checksfield of Naked in Thanet fame had started a music blog and after a relaxing read about Jerry Lee Lewis I attempted to add it to the latest feeds on my sidebar thingy.

After several failed attempts and ever mindful of Mr Lewis’s piano flambé I had started showing the computer various bottles of inflammable solvents that I use for removing sticky labels from books.

Here is how to do it where it says “add by url” and you would expect to add http://themargatemusicman.blogspot.com/ you actually need to add http://themargatemusicman.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss

Oh well now to add it to http://thanetblogs.blogspot.com/ as this has to be all written in Java perhaps I will leave it until later.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
