Facebook Page

001_FacebookFor so long I have been rejecting the idea that I will ever use a Facebook Page for my CPD links, but in recent weeks, I have been trying it out and its so easy to post a link, article or just a comment, so I am going to step up and give it a go for a few more weeks, all I do I hope will be posted here, via the great program iFTTT, which will monitor what I post and list it here.

The address for the Konstrukshon CPD web page on Facebook is :


Or search for “Konstrukshon CPD”

Please check it out, and post any comments or even repost



ifTTT and Mac IOS

CookerOne of the Professors at BCU was complaining about not being able to multi post, I suggested ifTTT and the Mac IOS, I use it a lot to make sure I post to twitter from this blog, also I use it for Evernote, I have a link to my Google Library, so when I open up Evernote in a new note, the heading is already set.

But it was this post I saw on ifTTT to save batter life, but also to stop me logging onto stray wifi signals, i don’t know why, but my iPhone gives priority to wifi over my 4G, and so often it hangs waiting for me to register, and I am left wondering why no email.

You can get this and a load more so useful links and rule set on using ifTT with IOS following this link to the Macworld site.

Architectural Technologist – ifTTT

iftttIf you are a office blogger, freelance blogger, or the office site manager, you really should get to grips with ifTTT, its one of the most useful free automation tools there is, and just recently several new features or links have been made.

The links to google have been expanded, in that if I make a blog in WordPress, I can add components of that blog to a Google doc spreadsheet, this opens up a serious automation of my CPD notes and dates, ok I have this already but what about automating my CPD records.

Take for instance setting up a wordpress.com site just to record your CPD activity, rather like this site, and making a link to a new google doc spreadsheet, instantly you have a very nice base for CPD record keeping.

Its not restricted to WordPress, I have made links to Evernote to do much the same, in fast I have added several new rules to ifTTT to send tweets for my flickr photos.

For the office blogger of Site manager, this is something you might want to explore to advertise and automate your office media work.

Once you have an account, try out the other sites that allow ifTTT to access the data, Google is becoming more integrated, so is a load of other sites, now just to large to list.

Architectural Technologist – Dry Fit Pitched roofs

If that then this

I continued my reduction of the magazine pile this morning and came across an article in “Housing Specification”, one of the free magazines I get, lots of adverts for materials, but equally, lots of interesting articles to read, mostly biast towards the authors company, but mostly useful, none the less.

One in particular caught my eye, was the article by Marley, on their dry roof system, I happen to like the idea of dry roof construction, to me it allows the roof to breath, and move without cracking or displacement of mortar. That said, each technologist should evaluate the materials used against the buildings need and the desired visual effect of the design.

Marley have put up a rather nice www.whydryfix.co.uk, that opens up with a rather glitzy video, but it gets over the basic points, but why make it a proprietary video, specific to the site, and not part of YouTube, !! Beats me, still the site is worth some time, the download is not bad, I have put it into my Evernote system for my personal search, I particularly like the plain tile vent, no more pipes sticking out for birds to nest in!!

You will be pleased to hear that my mac is back up and running, thanks to those nice people at Apple, now I await the insurance company to be equally as nice !!!.

The photo today is of another very nifty site called IFTTT.com, it allows you to set up rules, if the host site receives or does something then do this, I use it to send articles and mail to Evernote, if I highlight the mail, then it will be sent to Evernote, easy to use and set up, and it's free
