Get me the Comic Strip Presents Stat

Friday, March 24th, 2006

I spotted a headline, now changed, on a news site earlier “Seven Plot Bomb Blast at Bluewater”. I don’t remember that one in Enid Blyton’s cannon of children’s books. “Five Go Adventuring Again”, “Secret Seven on the Trail” and “The Castle of Adventure” I remember. A lost gem or time to call the Comic Strip […]

What Time is it Mr Wolf?

Friday, March 24th, 2006

I did warn you I was going to make up for yesterdays lack of post today. So, dear reader, here is a third instalment… Part of my day job is to go through client’s requirements for the web sites they want created and work out how we can do them. The features they want vary […]

DIY Pop Shield Article

Thursday, March 23rd, 2006

This will be appearing on my new web site with pictures I’m going to take at the weekend… If your getting popping sounds when recording vocals for use in Daz Mimic, your Pod Casting or whatever you record singing or speach for you need a pop shield (sometimes called a breath shield). This disperses the […]

Wot no Blogspot?

Server errors stopped me posting yesterday 🙁 So three times as much rubbish coming today to make up for it 🙂

How not to Sell

Tuesday, March 21st, 2006

Oh the irony. After writing up the night class fiasco I arrive at work to find an advert for the summer courses from Liverpool University. Just off to check in the mirror. I’m back. It doesn’t say “mug” on my forehead. I’ll keep my money. Only 50 minutes till second part of CSI. Something to […]

How Not to Teach

Monday, March 20th, 2006

Well tonight was the last night of a night class that I can only describe as a complete none event. Twenty weeks that allegedly focused on Creating Fictional Worlds. It said so in the title. The prospectus mentioned world building. It mentioned Fantasy and Science Fiction. What it didn’t mention was that that all the […]

Background Images Revisited

Sunday, March 19th, 2006

Well I had a second stab at a background image. This one actually has more going on in it but I faded it all a lot closer to white so it’s not so in your face. I’ll see how I feel about it in the next few days. It already has a few bits of […]

No Plan Survives Saturday

Sunday, March 19th, 2006

Well today was supposed to be a shopping, washing and site content day. It turned into a sleeping in, shopping, washing, php, xhtml and css day instead. I now have breadcrumb trails coded. Both sorts. And I’ve validated my XHTML and CSS at W3. I’m going to play with another ideas I had for a […]

A Little Perl of a Script

Saturday, March 18th, 2006

We were supposed to be going out for a drink from work tonight but it got cancelled 🙁 So instead I spent a few hours this evening playing with a Perl script I used back on my old spodbox site called Groan. I’d forgotten how much fun it was to see what sort of weird […]

Civ IV Not So Bad

Thursday, March 16th, 2006

I’ve played a few more games through of Civ IV and I’ve decided I like it after all. Playing it on a harder level that actually challenges me makes it a lot more interesting. Thinking back when I first played Civ it was a hard slog even on its easiest level to start with. The […]
