Well, that was fun. Interviewed by the BBC, got featured on BBC One (though crazy early at around 7am) and then on BBC News 24 twice. In-depth article on the BBC news website which makes the front of the Technology section (as a feature on the side) and then it makes the Home page as the most shared article and the second most read! Then get interviewed live on local radio and finally have a news agency come and take some photos and do another interview. Madness! All because of a blog post I wrote two years ago.
Many people have said I should try to cash in on this, but as others have pointed out, what I have done here isn’t rocket science, it isn’t complex, but I guess what is different is that I took the time to write about it and I plan to explain how to do it in non-techy speak. I also hope to write up a more detailed version, which will take time and I might charge a tiny amount for it, but that would simply be due to the time taken to write it up and because it would contains some code and scripts that I have created myself.
Kudos to WordPress for handling the server load. I use to host this site on my own sever at home, which would have melted by now!
I guess normality will resume tomorrow, but it was fun whilst it lasted.
