We have grown quite fond of Moby recently and have been searching high and low for a video to accompany “Everloving”. This has proven difficult because there doesn’t appear to be an official video to accompany the release of the track and the videos with Moby playing the song live aren’t as good as the original version of the song. So, Houston we have a problem. Then just as we were about to give up on the project, Edward reminded us that back in the very early days of Jammy Toast we used to make our very own videos. Indeed we used to post them on YouTube and they proved quite popular gaining thousands of views. Then Google purchased the video-sharing site and started getting very serious about copyright and our videos were removed. A sad day, indeed!
Well would you Adam and Eve it, the current rumour mill is suggesting that Nokia is planning to bring back their iconic Nokia 3310 phone. Most of our Jammy Toast followers are old enough to remember the 3310 and if you were in the market for a new phone around the year 2000, then the 3310 may well have been the phone you chose. In fact, there are many advantages to using a 3310 as against a modern smartphone. Unlike large screened iPhones and Androids they are not partial to the glass screen cracking and make a sturdy, reliable handsets with a long battery life.
Some of you may have noticed that we haven’t heard much from Edward lately. He hasn’t written anything for his column for some time and there has been nothing much new in the way of innovation around Jammy Toast. “Has he left home?” I was asked last night. Well, to put everyone out of their misery, he has started wading through all our old posts going back to 2006 when we first started a blog off with a view to starting up an archive of old posts.
Happy New Year and welcome to Jammy Toast. If you have been here before then welcome back but if you are a new visitor then make yourselves at home. Whoever you are, wherever you are from, we are always welcome here at Jammy Toast. If this is your first visit then let me introduce ourselves. Here at Jammy Toast we save bears who have been cast adrift into the hands of charity shops and car boot or eBay sales. All these bears need is a happy family home to make them feel loved and wanted – this is where we step in. Our job here at Jammy Toast is to save bears and provide them with a happy home where they can watch daytime telly and play on the internet.
Those of you who have been following Jammy Toast for any time will remember that on the old Jammy Toast we used to have Musical Sundays. We have continued this tradition by having our Bear Music days but there were over two hundred videos which were featured on the old Musical Sundays which have now gone. So today, thanks to the phenomenal technical skills of Edward, we have brought back all those missing videos. If you click on the Media menu above and then click on Bear Music you will be taken to the Bear Music page as you would expect. However, if you scroll down below the Bear Music you will find all the old BearTube videos for you to enjoy.
Hi, let me introduce myself. My name is Edward Bear and I am the bear responsible for technology here at Jammy Toast. I have lived with The Bearkeeper for seven years now, and in that time I have designed blogs and kept our IT equipment running. I have been asked to write a column every now and then on the subject of technology – which is what I am going to start today. Also I will try to keep everyone up to speed with our plans for Jammy Toast. I think The Bearkeeper is thinking of retiring because he is getting everybody else to take over writing on the new Jammy Toast which used to be his job on the old Jammy Toast.
Please excuse Jammy Toast from going missing for the last few days, we have been playing around with the new version of X. I say “we” but what I really mean is “Edward”. He has been experimenting and finding out just what is possible with the new version of X and its new page-builder; “Cornerstone”. Furthermore, he is thinking of redesigning the home page using some of the new design elements available through X and Cornerstone. Watch this space for future developments…
The people who make our WordPress theme, Themeco, have told us that a big update is on the way. They are currently on the final stretch and if all goes according to plan, they will be releasing the latest version towards the end of this week. This is a big update and is causing a great deal of excitement with Edward who no doubt will be installing it as soon as he gets hold of it. Themeco have packed in some exciting things with this update but so far and just building up the suspense and not revealing just what they are as yet.
As many of you already know, Einstein Bear is the bear here at Jammy Toast who is the brains of the outfit. Edward is one clever bear but he is clever where it comes to technology, which he studied at university, whereas Einstein’s intelligence covers many subjects. However, the other day he astounded even us when he came out with something so profound that he had us all wondering. In fact it was on Sunday, the shortest day of the year, when we were discussing how the mornings and evenings will start to get lighter. When Einstein stopped everyone in their tracks by pronouncing; “Not necessarily.”
Hello folks, my name is Edward Bear and I am the one responsible for keeping our online presence up and running smoothly. So I guess you can say I failed after recent events but that wasn’t really my fault – the culprit knows who he is, as do we! I am not going to introduce myself but instead inform you all of the work I am about to undertake. Thanks to this certain person’s sabotage, we have eight years’ worth of blog postings which are tainted with comments and pictures not posted by the person who they were meant to be posted by. We have had comments by Prince Charles, God Almighty, Jim Royle, etc – most of these were posted by The Bearkeeper thinking he was amusing. The problem is; nobody in their right mind really thought that Prince Charles was visiting Jammy Toast and leaving his thoughts on our posts. This obviously encouraged the other bright spark into posting material which was quite believably coming from people who got upset when they found out. Jammy Toast is not here to upset anyone!
