A ThinkTwit update is long overdue – I’d like to announce some changes I have recently made that overhaul the debugging output as well as another feature that has been discussed back and forth with an avid ThinkTwit user for sometime – thanks to Jeffrey Granger (weightlossexercisediet.com) for his usual tireless assistance!

I’ve recently been blogging about my experience of home brew; I first blogged about “My introduction to home brew“, then how “To make a scratter” and finally “Cider making, from fresh apples“. Whilst the latter two are clearly about cider – my passion – I’ve also been interested in wine making and beer making. So […]
My experience of the CITP assessment process
I’ve recently been through, and unfortunately failed, the BCS CITP assessment process. For those that don’t know the BCS is the Chartered Institute for IT and the Chartered IT Professional status is equivalent to the chartered status in accounting, but for IT. There are a number of benefits that CITP status gives you, but mostly […]
ThinkTwit Update 1.5.0
I have just launched an update to ThinkTwit which brings to us a new feature that I have wanted to add for quite some time. Thanks to a kind offer from Maria Ramos at WebHostingHub.com I have finally been able to add this feature. Here’s a brief summary of the changes:

Cider making, from fresh apples

My introduction to home brew
So I’ve been very quiet recently, for 3 main reasons: Work has been insanely busy, I may have an update on that in the coming months. I’ve been studying for my Chartered IT Professional (CITP) certification,I should have an update on that in the coming weeks. I’ve been making cider! (And perry, and beer, and […]
ThinkTwit Update 1.4.3
Just a quick update to ThinkTwit: Updated the readme.txt, and both shortcode and Output Anywhere as there were some inconsistencies in naming but also some of the instructions were out of date and hence wrong. Should resolve any issues anyone is having with either of these or with multiple usage on one page. Many thanks […]
ThinkTwit Update 1.4.2
It’s been a while since I last posted or made any changes to ThinkTwit as work is very busy at the moment – apologies if anyone has missed me, but I’m guessing not as I’ve not had a lot of feedback. One request that came through recently which stood out has prompted this latest release, […]
