PC MELTDOWN

By ATWadmin On June 29th, 2007 at 3:18 pm

The day started out so promising – I had several stories identified to go through with you and then – my laptop ceased working! I think the graphics card has bitten the dust – or else the screen is dodgy – either way it’s taken a while for me to get an alternative PC working, but I’m b-a-c-k-k-k-k-k!

More to follow….

ATW BLOOMING IN JUNE!

By ATWadmin On June 10th, 2007 at 5:41 pm

tangledpubnn0.jpgHi folks! Now that Squarespace have solved all our technical problems and we load faster than a speeding bullet (Mucho thanks to Anthony and his team!) I just wanted to let you know that the month of May saw ATW clock up record traffic levels! On behalf of all my fellow-writers, my sincere thanks to you for taking the time to drop by and check out our material. Best of all, we saw a fantastic 25% in NEW visitors to the site, which is terrific news. Thankfully, we have also seen the departure of some of those deranged trolls whose presence only sullied our site and we just keep growing.   

In order to ensure continued site access improvement, I would urge those ATW readers who regularly visit and who like to comment to become REGISTERED with this site. That way, you achieve posting priority and become part of our elite inner circle!! If you have already registered, you need take no more action, but if you haven’t, just drop me an email at the "Email the Editor" link and I will set you up. (Your details will only be visible to me.)

Once again, thanks for your continued patronage and here’s hoping we can just keep exceeding our records month by month. 

ON SQUARESPACE…

By ATWadmin On June 6th, 2007 at 9:24 am

Just to say that the hard working Anthony Casalena from Squarespace has made some significant change overnight to the ATW site which seems to have solved all "slowness" issues. I am now able to post and comment, log-in and the rest fast as a bullet. Is it OK for you, dear reader? If so, please let Anthony know!

TELL SQUARESPACE WHAT YOU THINK….

By ATWadmin On June 5th, 2007 at 10:37 am

I have to say that Anthony from Squarespace is working very hard to ensure our problems are eased and so once more I ask you to feedback how you find the site today. The more detailed your response the better as it helps Squarespace work out what is going on from the most important perspective – YOURS!

TAKE THE POLL!

By ATWadmin On June 1st, 2007 at 8:46 pm

I’m trying to get this slow blog loading issue resolved once and for all, so can you do me a favour, head over to the revived ATW site on typepad and take the poll 😉 

WONDERING ABOUT SQUARESPACE?

By ATWadmin On May 31st, 2007 at 12:33 pm

Hi folks – I wonder can you follow the link BACK to our old home for ATW over on the Typepad platform. Do me a favour and check out how fast it loads, what it is like to comment. I am frustrated beyond words at all the constant glitching and loading slowness you have all been reporting to me on this Squarespace platform and I would like your feedback on Typepad. Maybe I will redecorate it and we can relocate there? Let me know what you think please.

OPEN THREAD FOR SCHITZO’S…

By ATWadmin On May 20th, 2007 at 5:27 pm

tinfoil-hat.jpgSometimes you just have to laugh at this entire blogging business. Each day, I sit down and write about things that interest me, and whether I am right or wrong, it is my honest beliefs that I seek to convey.

99.9% of ATW’s many thousands of regular readers manage to argue along, sometimes proving me right and sometimes showing me wrong, which is great and all part of the fun.

But then there are the delusional tendency, the small number of crazies that come on here to pose as others – sometimes me, sometimes Andrew, sometimes other commentators. And yes, you know that despite my libertarian attitude I end up banning them because if I didn’t they would merely inject unlimited confusion. But I am an understanding person, and so it is that I offer an open thread for all those freaks who lurk out there  to come on and impersonate whoever you want….and of course for our sane readers to let the freaks know we love them just as much as anyone else – it’s just we’d rather that they put on their tinfoil hats and headed off to those many blogs which welcome such loons! I’m off out for a meal with my family but I will be checking in later…..and the moon is rising….

PETULANT CHILDREN….

By ATWadmin On May 20th, 2007 at 11:06 am

I would like you to have a read of this email sent to me by the poster known as Sir Percy today. It’s this kind of venomous hatred that so disfigures some on the left, and suffice to say that such scum are unwelcome here on ATW. I’ve left the spelling errors in for your general entertainment and for the edification of those freaks who are unable to grasp substance but who do so love style. 

David,
I’ve finally worked out your smears of me and sean and jo, and have made my comments on Seans site.
From now on the stakes are raised, we will be keeping a close eye on your hypocracies, and each and every time we catch you out telling lies, smearing, and banning, and generally acting like a petulant child with a big red button ( Nuke the World ), you can be sure you won’t get away with it.
lets be honest you can’t bear or take criticism, and for that you’re a wimp and a gutless coward.
A dissenting view , my arse, you’re about the most conformists idiot I know.
what you call radical, most human beings regard as sick
So lets expose you fully.
You are being watched
hope you’re feeling better about your late father death.
Percy

TANGLED WEB SITE PERFORMANCE

By ATWadmin On May 16th, 2007 at 9:28 am

Wonder can you help me? I have been experiencing long delays when I log in to ATW. I have been finding that comments are taking ages to load. I’m trying to get feedback for the Squarespace folks so IF you have been experiencing problems recently, can you please detail below? Thanks.
