Eight of the spheres in the metablob were […]

Building a Better Krillitane

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

The new Dr Who episode "School Reunion" that was really good. Liked having a villain who got to be nasty and menacing for a little while and who could act. I think there was either a huge story hole or (more likely) a hook for a later story buried in this one too. The Krillitane […]

Blame Kim!

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

Busy But Not Creative

Sunday, April 23rd, 2006

I seem to have been busy most of the day but I can’t point to anything and say look what I made. I’ve hacked around my website’s meta data (boring), tried to speed up my sites viral web app with some success, registered a couple of new domains and tweaked some of the site’s pages. […]
