Welcome to the February 26, 2007 edition of ‘get to know your technology better’.

Craig Harper presents Creating a Crap Blog in Ten Easy Steps posted at Renovate your life with Craig, saying, “* Note: This post is a bit of fun with a (not very) subtle message woven through it. It’s not intended to be a serious piece of journalism, it’s no personal development gem and it’s certainly no scientific review of the art of blogging. I absolutely acknowledge that I am a novice blogger… but even novices can make observations and have opinions. For my non-Australian friends it’s probably pertinent for me to share with you that many Aussies are given to frequent bouts of tongue-in-cheek communication. This article is what we would colloquially call, a piss take.”
