Fiddling with Pictures

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

I’ve been fiddling with my pictures pages because it gets quite a lot of visits when there is snow and in the run up to Christmas. I’ve found a jQuery lightbox that doesn’t seem to be cursed with lots of problems with bad paths. I’ve also written a little display plug-in to add a thumbnail […]

Experimenting with Feedburner

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

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

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 […]
