slow motion.

This is slow as fuckery isin’t it? Moving the whole fandango from poxy register365 to lovely (so far) blacknight helped hugely but its still a bit too slow. The original problem was 365′s hilariously shite database servers, up to a full 35 seconds to load a page of text sometimes, with something in the region [...]

Borneo, part one.

Borneo is a sparsely populated tropical jungle island, situated in the heart of Australia, from which it is separated by a huge inland sea. I lived on the Australian coast last night, in a paradise beach town, with my family who I have never seen before, and who were a little unconvincing, frankly, as my [...]

The foots a game!

“Furst dere was d’wurd , and d’wurd was li’” as they do say in auld dubilin towen. There was unemployment  and apathy,  which is great fun and  I couldn’t possibly recommend it highly enough, then all of a shocking sudden there was my name on a commercial lease for a bombed out kip, a commercial  [...]

Time gentlemen, please.

I’ve been reading a few blogs recently, something I didn’t bother me arse doing before I started this exercise in space-filling, and I’m seriously impressed with the output from some of them. One of the best out there is Eoin Butlers tripping along the ledge, which sees the main man banging out one or two [...]

Adventure with a slug.

I found a big long slug on the bathroom floor yesterday, or more honestly, the missus found a big long slug on the tiles yesterday and I was called in for a consultation on its immediate future. Now it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that I’m going all soft and hippie, there was an [...]

Beaumont Hannant – Texturology – a review

Beaumont Hannant; strange name that. If I had to guess, based purely on the name, I’d say young Beaumont is the ultimate product of savage generational inbreeding amongst a shrinking pool of anglo-franco aristocracy, sharing not only the blue blood but also the rugged good looks of the horseshoe crab.That would be all wrong though, [...]

lovely lovely music

Its been a month since my last confession post, and that’s primarily due to nothing happening of a technical or computery nature that’s worth commenting on. Other stuff still happens, as you naturally expect of stuff, because that’s what stuff does; it happens. But a blog with eight posts over five months is a dusty [...]

IE7 background hover bug

I found a new rendering bug in IE today, and I can’t find any other reference to this exact problem so I’m claiming it as my very own. I shall call it bastardwhore, or Mr. Fluffy, I haven’t decided yet.Here’s how the shit went down: I always construct sites using firefox as my default browser [...]

the intervening intervention

Aloha! its been a while since I blogged, and an incredibly mind shattering load of nothing has occurred in the intervening intervention. My first and long abandoned love, plastering, made a brief comeback there, just to remind me why I desperately needed a career change. And a nice sit-down. And sure while we’re at it [...]

Charlie U Farley…

I added a nice bit of PHP to the neonWidget so it now generates a thumbnail image every time an image is uploaded. I’m no longer relying on the editor’s own ‘insert image’ text box, cos it’s a bit unimpressive and not too user-friendly. Instead there’s a nice big friendly button underneath the editor with [...]
