Tweaking the impworks site colours so they achieve WAI – WCAG AAA accessibility.

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 […]

New Glasses Yeh!

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

Got my glasses back with the new lenses today – apparently they were waiting for me to contact them – strange that they went to a lot of trouble checking my address, phone number, work phone number, mobile phone number and address when I ordered them so they could let me know as soon as […]

Intentionally Blank

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

I was thinking of saying something about BBC2’s Einstein and Eddington but I think I’ll just say I enjoyed it. One odd thing I noticed today (other than how busy the shops are and how long the wait to be served is when we are supposedly not spending on the high street) was early on […]

'Addicted' to Addiction

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

As I get older one thing that annoys me more and more is the quantity of what passes for journalism. The rise of editorial over actual reporting. The need to have a journalist at the scene of the event to give a live report to camera and have a nice chat with the studio where […]

Leaning on a (Virtual) Lamppost

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

For anyone waiting for Vue 7. To be performed in the style of George Formby or for those of us who take our ukulele seriously The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. I’m leaning on a lamp, maybe you think, I look a tramp, Or you may think I’m hanging ’round to steal a modo-car. But […]

Odeon Liverpool 1

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

Last night’s trip to see The Quantum of Solace was also our first expedition to Liverpool 1’s new Odeon. In most respects its a big improvement over the old Odeous on London road. It helps that the seats are actually set so you’re looking at the screen and I was impressed with how easily they […]

Item 3 on the Agenda

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

Not really up to the standards of Oh, God! but an attempt at something with a similar sentiment inspired by the current round of CERN inspired madness… Item 3 on the Agenda "Item 3 on the agenda. Do you want to kick off?" "How about next Tuesday?" "Sorry can’t do next Tuesday." "Why not?" "Little […]

A Very Wordy Bank Holiday

Monday, August 25th, 2008

Sometimes the words don’t come easy. Its a stuggle to get 50 words out of my characters in a day. Then there are days when they just won’t shut up. Over the last two days I’ve knocked out 6,500 words primarily from three miscreants I’ve had sitting waiting for an idea.

Film Meme
