Hand me my Chainsaw of Editing

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

The rebuilding and post launch work on impworks is now pretty much done which means I can get back to other projects.  tonight I’ve taken an editing chainsaw to a 120 page text which is the core design for a game and so far I’ve cut it to 60 pages.  Now I’m at the hard […]

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 […]

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

Kim’s now got her very own unofficial Kim Knox fan club. Won’t be too long before she has a has a twitter hash tag all of her own too #kimknox 😉

In Space No One Can Hear You Scream…

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

…or pant, moan, or make any other vocalisations that might wake the neighbours for three hundred yards.

Kim’s got another story out, Demonic Attraction, and while it’s science fiction and includes aliens from what I’ve read so far its not a remake of Alien but its not for the faint of heart when it comes to naughtiness.

Vue Python for Beginners Updated

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

I’ve added the first new stuff to impworks since putting the reworked site. My first video tutorial, an update to Vue Python for Beginners, showing how to run a Python script in Vue 7 Infinite.

268 Links Sitting in a Database

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

I rebuilt the Vue Links Directory from one database to another yesterday as part of finishing off a complete rebuild of the impworks site into WordPress. There were 268 links to migrate and while the basic move was handled easily I then had to work my way through and do some data cleaning to improve […]

A Short Back and Sides

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

A Short Back and Sides was a scenario I wrote for Kenzar & Company’s Fairy Meat which appeared in the SFSFW’s journal Ragnarok back in issue 33. Funnily I’ve had three different people request copies of it in the last month. Its been around for years and I don’t remember anyone asking for it before. […]

Consort Review

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

Having finished The Translated Man I felt like reading some more fiction so I’ve just finished reading Kim’s latest novella Consort. Skipping quickly past the rather cliched cover. Not that its badly done but it reminds me of racks of second hand romance books in charity shops. At least with an e-book its not there […]

The Translated Man

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Finished reading The Translated Man by Chris Braak yesterday. Since I’m being regularly e-mailed by a web site who’ve taken to including my posts tagged reviews are included in their review listings where the reviews are in turn reviewed I’m going to do a bit of a Corbett first. While I may tag this as […]
