This Message Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds…

Sunday, May 14th, 2006

Sorry couldn’t resist the title. I bet if I did a search I’d find hundreds like it already. What can I say it is a classic line. Well hats off to Mr Abrams. The best of the franchise so far. I liked the first one but it lacked the team element for most of the […]

Ten Years at the Web Face

Saturday, May 6th, 2006

I realised something a little frightening earlier its ten years ago this month I started the course that changed me from an engineer into a web developer. I’d used the WWW and e-mail as a student but not made any web pages before. It wasn’t till January the next year that I began working as […]

Saturday on Sunday

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

Last night both my PCs were running full time rendering different versions of the same picture till I got one version I liked so I couldn’t post this till now. I spent the first half of the day resolving all those issues from Friday (Too many Ideas: Todays a Lemon and I’d like my Money […]

Busy But Not Creative

Sunday, April 23rd, 2006

I seem to have been busy most of the day but I can’t point to anything and say look what I made. I’ve hacked around my website’s meta data (boring), tried to speed up my sites viral web app with some success, registered a couple of new domains and tweaked some of the site’s pages. […]

When Inspirons Collide

Monday, April 10th, 2006

Coming Soon to ITV 1: Serious and Organised

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

It may just be me but behind all the serious talk today about the launch of SOCA there was a faint hint of a wink and a smirk. As though a few civil servants who like 70 and 80s cop shows had come up with it after a heavy night of drinking… “Ya know what […]

Men of Action!

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

Watched a 1960s promo film/making of for “The Dirty Dozen”. Some shots of the actors and crew at work. Some of them at play. An info light version of the extras so beloved of the DVD makers of today. What was funny was the voice over. How they kept telling us that the cast were […]

First thoughts on New Game with No Name (Yet)

Monday, January 30th, 2006

So I want to do stuff for the new web site. I’ve got several stories underway. I should come up with a game idea to work on too. For years I’ve been playing round with an idea for a game that can be used as both a role playing game and a wargame without any […]
