More impworks Site Fiddling

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

I’ve added automatic checking for broken links and redirects for outgoing links.  In the long term it should be a big time saver however now four days later all the broken links are fixed or removed and the 1000 odd redirects are mostly delt with except to the BBC who switch between two URLs with […]

Dark Host Out Now

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

It only seems like yesterday that Kim had a new story out but it was all of a couple of weeks ago (just enough time to read an Ian Rankin novel and a couple of history books). Her latest novella, Dark Host, was a Brava finalist and I’ve read a bit of it before so […]

Spicy Black-eye Beans

Monday, July 20th, 2009

This is one of my favourit recipes, so much so that I went and bought a 7 litre stock pot from John Lewis a couple of weeks back so I can cook a double quantity for freezing. Ideally it should be cooked a couple of days in advance and allowed to sit so the deep, rich flavour of the sauce can mature and permeate into the beans.

Miniature Pulp Era Posters

Monday, July 20th, 2009

Back in August 2007 I posted a set of Miniature Victorian and Edwardian Posters which at the time didn’t really seem to get a lot of downloads or get any feedback. When I rebuilt the impworks website I almost left them out and the file got moved round late compared to some of the python […]
