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 […]

Gzip Go Faster Stripes

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

In an effort to make this site a bit more of a Quatro and less of an Austin 1100 I’ve painted gzip go faster striped down the side of all the html, css and js files it serves up tonight.

Downloads Fixed

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

My apologies to anyone who was trying to download anything directly from impworks.  I managed to knock out the download handling so all the links were broken.  It’s up and running again now.

Translate This Button

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

I’ve just added a Translate.This button in about 5 minutes to the left hand menu. Looks to be a nice little JavaScript implementation of the Google translation service. I know there are WordPress plug-ins to do this but I’ve had mixed experience with those in the past so I’m going to try this one out […]

The Ghost of Moderation Present

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

I’ve just cleaned up some random text spam messages that hit here earlier today.  Nothing offensive or innapropriate but a waste of my time.  To make my life easier (and stop anything bad getting through) I’ve tightened the moderation of comments on this blog up.  If that puts the spammers off I’ll loosen the moderation […]
