Experimenting with Feedburner

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

I’ve moved the Too Many Ideas RSS over to Feedburner mostly to get a better idea of what Feedburner has to offer. The existing feed is still there and will carry on working but if you want to try the new feed you can subscribe to it on: The first added extra using feedburner […]

Vue Python Script Pages, Links Directory and Search Updated

Friday, October 8th, 2010

I’ve tweaked the display of the Vue links directory and the Google custom search of the site’s in the directory to hopefully make them easier to use.  I’ve also worked through all the python script and so they’re all displayed with a code highlighter.

One Page Can Make a Difference

Monday, August 16th, 2010

The original Knight Rider used to end with the refrain of Wilton Knight’s last words to Michael… One man can make a difference Tonight I thought I’d share how one page (and a tiny bit of PHP code for WordPress) made a difference to my site.  At least its made a difference for Google.  I’ll […]

Nicer Python Display: The Results are In

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Thanks to everyone who voted on my Nicer Python Display poll. I’ll start looking at updating all of the python script pages on my site to use the new, improved formatting. [poll id=”3″ type=”result”]

Nicer Python Display

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

I’ve wanted to improve the display of the code for my Vue python scripts here for quite awhile but I was never entirely happy with the code highlighters I’d tried. I’ve installed and fiddled with a new one tonight and I think I like it but since its really for you (well at least if […]

Unplanned impworks site Modifications

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

I didn’t intend to make site changes today. An unexpected interaction between a plug-in and an update of WordPress set me off trying to find a fix. I also spotted another tiny problem with one of my own plug-ins so I fixed that and then checking in IE noticed that MS Word html had crept […]

Scaling Objects to Help making Vue Scenes

Monday, June 21st, 2010

I’ve been exchanging emails with Paul, a Vue user, who was having difficulty visualising how big objects should be in Vue. He uses real world measurements but his pictures didn’t look right because he was struggling to get the objects to be the right size and making the distances between them realistic. That was messing […]

Living Room Rules

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

After a (small) flood of unacceptable comments that didn’t get past my blog’s spam and flood control I’m posting living room rules. Just a quick note: I support freedom of speach.  You have the freedom to say whatever you want on your website.  Quoting the 1st Amendment to me is a bit daft as I’m […]

CSS Tweaking

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

I’ve made a few minor CSS tweaks here.  A little one should give the breadcrumb trail at the top of the page a bit more space when it gets long so it doesn’t do weird things. The bigger tweak is adding some conditional CSS that should (hopefully) imporve the display of the site for Internet […]

Add this is History

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Until today I’d included the Add this Button on both this site and on my unofficial Vue News blog.  Having looked at the usage I’ve taken it off this blog.  Quite simply, despite having tried it in a few different places, it wasn’t being used.  On Vue News it gets a low level steady stream […]
