NO, it isn’t Star Wars, thankyouverymuch.

It’s a new project — something that I’ve been faffing around since 2014 and wrote about it to you all all of you back then (see “Why am I toying with this idea?“).

Shutting off comments after 30 days

Saturday 16 April 2016, 7.22am HKT


FROM THE MANAGEMENT

All comments are now closed after 30 days of posting.

This is to control spam and general prevention of identity theft through hacking from the comment areas and meta links (like the admin log-on links).

The main aim for me is to control the trolling comments on old posts and other troublemaking. We all have 24 hours in the day; the rest is up to us.

This doesn’t affect upvoting and likes, both of which remain fully functional.

To secure your WordPress.com site:—

  1. Go to your Admin Dashboard
  2. On lefthand menu, click Settings > Discussion
  3. In “Other comment settings,” tick “Automatically close comments on articles older than [30] days
  4. Scroll down and click “Save changes” button
  5. Done!

I highly recommend you do the same for your site now.

No more wallpapers

FROM THE MANAGEMENT

7.25am local time, air conditioner on (19°C, 67°F)

Greetings Programs!

WordPress no longer allows changeable backgrounds for my theme (Ambiru). Wallpapering is now a premium feature, which means forking out cold hard cash.

It’s a crying shame, but I suppose it had to happen sooner or later. I wouldn’t mind paying, but I spent all my money on food, drinks and other useful stuff of life.

I discovered this only yesterday (St Swithin’s Day) and was going to put this up:—

Je suis la nouvelle année

Tuesday 13 January 2015, 7.09am HKT


2.58am local time, 12°C (54°F), cold with heavy rain

I think most of us should be on 2015 by now — and probably falling apart like everything else is already in this world of ours.

Normally on the first day of the new year, I post this sort of embarrassment to remind peep’l just who (and what) is behind the unfunny hilarity of this blog. I broke with my own tradition and posted this shameless nonsense for 2014.

I might as well go with breaking the tradition for this year.

Because heaven knows when the next post will ever come…

For your viewing pleasure, some nosey-parkery random fun facts about The Naked Listener.

Each item originates from at least one serious, factual, objective detail about me. They’re only done up in a special way to make them seem less serious.

Site Update: Wallpaper for November

Saturday 15 November 2014, 7.06am HKT


6.45am local time, 24°C (75°F), cool and slightly breezy

BECAUSE of a subsystem error routine in my right shoulder, I’ve not updated the background image for last month and only now getting round to the November one.

Carpet and walnut side table, by me, taken sometime in November 2014.

It’s not the best of wallpapers, but you get the idea…

Not one of my better artistic efforts, mind. Background image may change again at any time.
