If you are anything like me you probably have many blogs on the go. I stupidly set myself the task of maintaining the following blogs, wikis and a few web 1.0 sites:

LAMP, JustVirtual, Watercooler, GaryHayes.tv, Cubrisound, LAMP Wiki, MUVEDesign and a host of sharing portal channels, other wikis, forums and commercial sites which you can see on my Wikipedia profile.

Anyway I often find posts that could sit on more than one site and for some bizarre reason I have refrained from cross-posting. High standards? Making multiple blogs redundant, who knows. So there will be a quick burst of recent posts from other sites, which have a slightly different editorial stance – but will at least reduce the dreaded ‘blog-guilt’. And to part two of this brief, superficial post, I hearby claim for the world a new ‘conjugative (adj.)’ word
