Noddegamra Update

Filed under: Miscellaneous | 3 Comments

Noddegamra has evolved!

As you can see, the Noddegamra website has undergone a face-lift!

The changes made weren’t all purely visual though, the site now runs on a new system which makes the process of updating and adding new content even easier than before. This means more regular content and alot more variety (thanks to the category and search system) ,allowing this site’s theme to keep in even more with the forum topics of conversation.

There are still some adjustments to be made, but here is a list of what you can come to expect within this new generation of the Noddegamra website:

  • Regular updates and content
  • Catagorised content making archived material easier to find
  • Ability to subscribe to articles, providing email notification of any updates or comments
  • Improved commenting system
  • Top 10 commentators rewarded with a link to their website on every page
  • New content such as reviews, game guides and comic strips
  • Improved RSS feed
  • Easier social bookmarking

As the new Noddegamra site runs on open source software, it means I can have flexibility in features and functionality, but not at the expense of my time. I can now focus more on the website’s content, hopefully improving the overall experience to you all.

If you have any feedback or features you would like to see included in the new Noddegamra, please leave a comment :)

Jimi Hendrix: 27th November 1942 – 18th September 1970

Filed under: Miscellaneous | 0 Comments

It has now been 37 years since the day Jimi Hendrix died.

He has been an inspiration to many, myself included.

For those unaware of his talent, Jimi Hendrix was a self-taught guitarist who came to light in the 1960′s. He took England by storm, and then returned to America where in 1969 he headlined the Woodstock Festival.

“Hendrix usually played a Fender Stratocaster guitar turned upside down (so that the right-handed guitar could be played left-handed) and restrung to suit him. Hendrix helped pioneer the technique of guitar feedback with overdriven amplifiers, incorporating into his music what was previously an undesirable sound.” – WordPress.com

Whilst listening to a few CDs and looking for some movie clips online I came across this old classic: Jimi Hendrix playing “Hear My Train A Comin” on a 12 String Acoustic Guitar.

Its amazing how he creates such beautiful music so effortlessly. Whilst this probably won’t win over anyone who hasn’t really heard him before (this isn’t the best video to show someone what hendrix was all about), it’s definitely a music gem to all those Hendrix fans out there.

If you wish to find out more about Jimi Hendrix, I highly recommend you read this wikipedia page on him.

If you wish to hear some good examples of his music then I suggest you listen to his Isle of Wight album. It’s a personal favourite of mine. His live performances were always infinitely better than his studio recordings.

Andy Mckee

Here is some very inspiring music from the extremely talented Andy Mckee.

This is more likely something that should be posted (or listened to) on a Sunday as it’s very relaxing. Unfortunately though, I have very limited FTP access at the moment meaning you get this a day earlier than intended. (Lucky you!)

There are 3 videos here, although there are a lot more if you search for him on the YouTube website.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I continually do…
