Good Night and Good Luck

Tuesday, February 28th, 2006

Just went to see “Good Night and Good Luck”. The cinematography was stunning. The cast outstanding and played their parts well. The story well structured. It dealt with important topics in an intelligent way. But… Maybe not being American it didn’t have the impact or maybe knowing the outcome left it without any feeling of […]

Blogged Too Soon

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

Yeah! I did it. I wrote the last couple of scene. Found a few interesting surprises I’d not anticipated that make the ending far less like bad space filler and far more like story telling. Then I typed The End. 15,500 words. Now I have to edit the dang thing. I already know it needs […]

So close I can almost type it…

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

Almost reached a point where I can type The End. But not quite. Past the 15,000 word mark. Still a few bits to go back and fill in. Just the tidying up left. Then editing.

Far Too Normal

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

After an hour of carefully looking at my database design for the new Impworks site I’m pretty certain I normalized it to the fifth normal form. I wish I could say I’d planned to do that at the outset but to be honest I didn’t. Without even thinking about it I designed it that way. […]

Plodding On

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

Its friday night so what have I been doing? I’ve been plodding on with more stuff for my new web site. And sciving off playing computer games a bit too 🙂

New impworks Logo

Thursday, February 23rd, 2006

I’m going to stop being indecisive and post up three versions of the logo. First the large version. Then the small (web) version. A greyscale version for print.

Holding my Horses

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2006

I think I’ll hold off posting the logo for another day. Sketched out the database that’s going to sit behind my new site. No point in learning how to write code and then not use it to make my own life easier. Trying to persuade myself to normalise the design now. I feel the will […]

Logo Tweaking

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2006

Spent a couple of hours tonight tweaking my new logo till I got something I think I’m happy with. If I’m still happy with it tomorrow I may post a copy for the world to see. Or I may be a coward and not…

Men of Action!

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

Watched a 1960s promo film/making of for “The Dirty Dozen”. Some shots of the actors and crew at work. Some of them at play. An info light version of the extras so beloved of the DVD makers of today. What was funny was the voice over. How they kept telling us that the cast were […]

Web Site Move Slowly Closer

Sunday, February 19th, 2006

No writing today (yet). Just catching up on dull old house work and leg work. Finally bullied myself into working up the design for the new web site. Then sorted out the XHTML & CSS. Then reworked it till it looked OK in both IE and Mozilla Firefox. Then sorted out the logo I’ve been […]
