I said that to a friend once, I thought it was very profound. But enough sharing, that might imply I care. Nothing really to report, thus the lack of posting.  I’ve been working on RPoL, but nothing very exciting, I’ve been hacking up the visual layout, which is more fun than coding, until you have […]

I don’t post for months, and yet within a day of posting two people have not only read my entry but posted replies.  My god people, you must be bored! Anyhoo.  Today was a day of… uh… frustration It’s currently 2am. I got up at 9-something.  A bit late I know. ‘lo any behold, as […]

Why yes, it’s back, I’m back.  For better and for worse, til boredom do we part. Anyhow… Today is the first day without a certain large organisation paying me to come in whenever I could.  Now the pay wasn’t fantastic, but the conditions were good, I could pretty much come and go as I pleased, […]

I know insomnia is not on anyone’s Christmas card list, but really, the level of hate between us is beyond ridiculous! I wish I could get a full nights sleep for once, it’s been over a week. I’ve been awake for hours.



Great thing about web standards is they aint. The alt tag for images is there for the visually impaired.  The idea is if they can’t see the screen then their text-to-speech reader can read out the alt (alternate) tag for them instead.  So, the W3C recommendation (y’know, the people that did the whole HTML thang) […]

Sometimes I forget about how funny a man I am.  Really, I do. For those not in the know, I programmed the WingedMonkeyBot that’s featuring in todays exciting instalment.

Ok, so Duran Duran never actually used those particular lyrics, and this post isn’t going to interest my regular readers (though I have faith it’ll be as interesting as my regular posts for them).  Nobody will really care except those who happen to stumble on this post after searching for keywords such as “dynamic redraw”, […]
