Every Post Fixed

Wednesday, March 29th, 2006

Well that was a thrilling hour I’ll never see back I set out to make a teeny change to my blog and ended up editing every post to correct the xhtml I’m going to have to be careful or I’ll need to retitle this blog Too Much Complaining

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 […]

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 […]

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 šŸ™ 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 […]

Content, Content, Content

Wednesday, March 15th, 2006

After watching CSI last night (finally this season seems to have gotten going with last night’s episode) I set to work pulling content for my new site together. Some articles I wrote for Valkyrie, some stuff I wrote for defunct web sites, some of my pictures and some stuff from my old web site. Then […]

Image Good. Background Bad.

Sunday, March 12th, 2006

After an afternoon spent making cogs in Cinema 4D and a rendering them in Vue 5 Infinite and I had a nice image to use a background for my new web site. Unfortunately all it does when added to the page is either interfere with the readability of the text if its big enough to […]

CSS Hacking

Sunday, March 12th, 2006

Fought against the cold and managed to spend a few hours hacking CSS. I’m a lot closer to having my new web site’s design done now. Just playing with background images to give it more visual interest. I don’t think I’ve used a background image on a site since sometime in 1997. I may not […]

Just when I wasn't Looking.

Wednesday, March 1st, 2006

There I was not paying attention and get not just my first comment but two. I will now go away and write out 100 times “I must pay more attention”. Honest I will.

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. […]
