Working away in Digital Crew.

Yes I'm still alive incase anyone was wondering. I have just been working away flat out the last few months. I keep meaning to post here but I have been finding it hard to find the time.

So what have I been up to thats made me ohh too busy? Well I have joined the Crew, I'm now working away with my friends Dan and Topper in Digital Crew. I have been in and around their office for years now and we have AREA51 between us as well. So now I have moved in and am working away pretty much full time inside. It's been a bit mainic getting myself up to speed. I'm now the new business development manager inside. Dan and Topper are still the programming nerds.

Digital Crew has been up and running 9 years, and they have some top class clients on the books now, so it has'nt really been a hard job for me yet to bring in the sales. It's been a nice change for me to do something different for a while and I do believe a lot in the products and sites that we are developing here. The Skills thats the guys have now is class and we must have the best CMS (Content Management System) out there now.

We are also, as I have said in an early post,  TeamworkPM. We have been using TeamworkPM inside Digital Crew now for the last 5 months I would say and it's really changed the way we work inside. It's made us much more orginised and it's really helped us stay on top of clients needs. There is a free version for anyone to try so I would say, give it a go ;-)


Right I must get out of the office and head home, I'm really going to try to get back into my blogging from now, I'm always coming across things and thinking shite, I should have a little rant about that but I just have'nt gotten around to it, so I hope to get back in the game again.

Teamwork Project Manager

Been up the walls here the last week so have not blogged in a while. I have been working with the guys (Dan and Topper) on Teamworkpm.net The product is looking really well now, the guys have done a great job in building this.

Teamwork PM is an online Project Management application that will help you work faster and be more productive in the work place.  We have been using it for a while now in Digital Crew and it's been bloody fantastic. (well I would say that I guess)

Before Teamwork we often forgot to pass on messages or simple tasks that we needed to do for our clients, or it just ending up taking too long to sort out problems because we would miss each other in the office or emails we sent to each other would just get buried in an our email inbox.

With Teamwork we have got rid of all these problems. We have a few more features that we are in the process of adding, and  we have have had a load of suggestions from people currently using Teamworkpm but It will always be an on going project as we improve things over time.

I would love to get some more feed back from people to see what othe feature people would like. There is a free edition use as well as the paid versions with have a few more features. Please give the free one a go and let me know what you guys think.

FeedDemon is now FREE!


Just heard from Dan that the fantastic RSS reader, FeedDemon is now free. Thats right I said it FeedDemon is FREE!! I have been meaning to get FeedDemon for a while now but have just never got round to it.  I see on their site that they do a synchronization with the blackberry, so I will have to look at that. I have been using viigo on my Blackberry. I saw Dan was using on his iphone and I liked the way your feed were synced with your desktop.

The full press release can be found on the FeedDemon site here.

Blogbridge free rss reader

While trawling through the net last night, I came across this very nice free rss reader called BlogBridge.  Today was the first time I got a chance to give it ago, and so far I'm impressed with it. It has been nice and easy to use and has plulled in some nice sites and stories with my tags that I gave it.

  • Why BlogBridge Rocks

    1. It handles hundreds of feeds with the greatest of ease … (more)

    3. It looks cool and is easy to use … (more)

    I like the one that says it has super powers, it was that which sold it for me really.

    Streaming movies

    Being awhile since I posted anything on here. I had a problem with the site when posting in December for some strange reason.

    Anyhow I was on Digg last night when I came across a post for this movie site. I then spent the rest of the night then watching SAW. A film I heard about but never really wanted to see but thought I would give it 10mins and man what a great film. It's just a bloody good thriller, really got me thinking and I just really enjoyed it. So I watched SAW 2 today. Also good. Some of the films are shite quality and some don't stream fast but hey it's free so you can't be too picky.

    (note to Emma, I have now fixed the title) Smart ass!
