Wife in a Blue One

Today I had the privilege of listening to a new sound. The harmonies of three British Royal Navy wives, collectively known as 'Wife in a Blue One'.

They have just release this on YouTube:

Their first cover song is 'Feel Like Home'. A Randy Newman song originally covered by Linda Ronstadt. Though this first song by Wife in a Blue One was recorded without any special recording equipment, I think they do the song justice. I wish them well. I know they will have a lot fun singing together.

I hope all my friends out there will give this song a chance and share with their friends.?

Visual Basic 2008

Jip and I have been discussing our future plans and our future definitely lies in Thailand. I need to expand my programming skills. To that end, I dug out my Visual Studio 2008 disc and found I burnt it in March 2009! Crikey! I completed my VB course three years ago!

I have re-installed VS2008 and started to refresh my knowledge of VB by working through MS Visual Basic 2008 Step by Step. So far so good; it all seems so familiar.

Our plan now, is to work towards a move to Thailand in mid to late 2013. Plai's graduation ceremony is expected to be during the autumn of that year and we want to be there for that.

New Look

I have now completed - well almost, some pages still have no content! I didn't go-live with the PHPBB but instead I'm now using Google+ and I like the 'circles'. Facebook hasn't drawn be back. The new look can be found here. Pop over and give me some feedback? I'm still undecided on the content for 'Thailand'.

Amsri Website

I'm re-writing my family website - It currently runs on Joomla. Recently my ISP upgraded their PHP. This caused some errors to show up with the underlying Joomla. I had a choice, upgrade Joomla or write my own PHP. As I have accumulated a large amount of PHP knowledge over the last couple of years I've decided to do a re-write.

I am following Google's lead and leaving older browser compatibility behind. I'm writing in PHP5, HTML5 and CSS3. I have deserted Facebook and as an alternative, I am including a Public and Private forum. This will be using PHPBB3.

I'm liking the look at it so far!

Goodbye Facebook

A little later than planned but I have finally put Facebook behind me. It took me awhile to 'Download Your Information'
but I got there in the end. Internet Explorer 9.0.8 didn't appear to work with the download button. After the third failed attempt, I tried again using Firefox 4.0.1 and it worked first time! I received my email from Facebook within a few hours with a link to my download. My file was about 49 Mb and took a couple of minutes to download. Once this was downloaded and checked I then deleted my Facebook account. Free at last!
