For a couple of days now I've been trying to figure out why MilkHub looks strange on whitetop, so today I decided to get to the bottom of it...

Async Comments

I've been playing with the comment code recently trying to make it a little bit more user friendly and I think I've succeeded! All of the comment actions are done using Asynchronous JavaScript now... this means that the page doesn't reload when you submit a form and when you click on the edit/delete buttons the form is loaded in-line. How cool is that? :o)

Tesco Value Webcam

Today in Tesco I had a look at the webcams and found the Tesco Value Webcam. At only £6.72 I figured that if it didn't work it wasn't a big deal! But I needn't have worried, Kubuntu picked it up straight away and Motion was able to start playing with it too!

Vector Tower Defence

The aim of the game is to eliminate the Vectoid threat before they reach the end of the path. You do this by constructing towers along the path to attack oncoming Vectoids. Success is not based solely on the types of tower you select, but where you place them and what upgrade and bonus options you take.

Back From Holiday

After a lovely, hot and sunny two weeks in the Dominican Republic I'm back to the not-so hot and sunny England. I've put up my photos, though please don't bookmark them as the gallery is going to have an overhaul before the month is out, for that matter the whole site is ;o). I'll put up a diary or something similar in the next couple of weeks too.

The bracer has come off!

Those of you who have known me over the past three years will probably have noticed the band of bracelets around my left wrist. They were all gifts from friends since 2003/4 and have occupied that space on my wrist since then. Unfortunately they've slowly been getting tighter around my wrist (or my wrist has been growing into them) and so I've had to cut them off. This post is in memory of those bracelets and the people who gave them to me.
