I Have a TARDIS! I’ve Named her Sexy :)

By Shopping, The Web, TV, Online Streaming & FilmsNo Comments

I’ve had a hankering for a TARDIS for quite some time. The problem is that they are hard to find. All TARDIS toys have become collectables and are ridiculously priced for what they are. But then I found this Facebook group. I was lucky enough to find someone who builds bespoke TARDIS’ to order.

Here is my new TARDIS, which I’ve named Sexy:

I am over the moon with it. The craftmanship is incredible. I was so lucky in finding this wonderful man who did such an amazing job.

I HATE How Commercial WordPress Is Becoming & Bye, Bye, Jetpack

By Technology, The Web, ThinkingNo Comments

I HATE how commercial WordPress is becoming! What went wrong? It started out as a community-based blogging platform. Now everything is about business and money and it stinks!

A good example of this is Jetpack. Jetpack is a plugin that recorded statical data about visitors and views. It used to be free and did these lovely annual reports.

Now the services provided by Jetpack, including their Stats has in the latest update become a paid model. Not just a paid model, but a subscription service – like money is no object. Sure it’s fine if you have a business and are making money.

But for a small author and blogger like me, let’s be clear: This website costs me more than it has ever earned me. But I keep it running, at a personal cost to me for my enjoyment. It’s a leisure activity.

So today, it was Bye, Bye Jetpack. I’ve removed and deleted the plugin. I encourage other bloggers to do the same. Let’s not give in to their financial demands and instead opt with our fingers and delete plugins and themes demanding money with their Dashboard banners.

It’s not just Jetpack. EVERY theme and plugin now expects you to pay, usually a subscription service, for regular updates.

Honestly if there were an alternative community-based platform, similar to WordPress’ past, that focused on development to improve user experience, rather than making developers rich, I’d switch. But there isn’t right now, meaning that at least for now I’m stuck with WordPress.

Blog – Yes blog, writing for pleasure, not to make money, soon,

A List of Famous People with ADHD

By Health, The Web, ThinkingNo Comments

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurological condition where the brain is structured differently to that of other people. According to ADHD UK people with ADHD:

People with ADHD show a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity–impulsivity that interferes with day-to-day functioning and/or development.

ADHD UK, last accessed 21/03/2023.

ADHD UK have even done this excellent explanation video:

Thanks to better understanding of this neurodiverse condition and increased public awareness, there has been an increase in the number of people globally diagnosed with ADHD. I’ve written about ADHD in my latest book Ways The Human Body Can Go Wrong.

But which famous people have ADHD? That’s what I cover in this post. I should start by saying that this list has been compiled by research on the internet, so can’t be seen as fully accurate. But hopefully, it demonstrates to people with ADHD that they are not alone and that ADHD won’t stop them from achieving their dreams. They might just have to go about it in a different way than non-neurodiverse people.
