I drew another background

20th February 2012

Another day, another picture. It's another one I started ages ago:
I was thinking this could be near the beginning, giving you the first visual sign that you are in space.
Lots of things could be improved, the perspective seems a little of*snip*


I drew a background

18th February 2012

More drawing for the on-going RPG that I am (very) slowly building. This time it's a background:
I think the floor is too long, but other then that, I'm pretty happy with this. Usually I follow an existing picture pretty closely; trying to *snip*


more drawing

1st December 2011

I have started drawing again.
I'm going to try and draw something every day (or every other) to improve my skills further. I really want to get good enough to do produce good game graphics.


PlayMyCode Embedding!

11th March 2011

Thanks to Jay (thanks) you can now embed PlayMyCode games here on SoCoder. YAY! \\o/
For this you can use the new [ pmc ] tag. When you go to embed or share a game the url ends with 'username/title'. For example Spike Dislike's url is (Linkage)' and so en*snip*


PlayMyCode updates!

8th March 2011

Today I have three new updates out for PlayMyCode, YAY!
First a new forum so you can ask for help and discuss other stuff too.

Transparent Arrays

4th February 2011

Last night I had a brainwave on a new language feature for Quby. I suspect this exists in other languages already, however it doesn't in many mainstream ones.
The problem is that you often want to hold a collection of values and then perform an operation *snip*


Bank Statements

1st September 2010

Today I needed a paper copy of my bank statement for the last two months.
So I go to the bank, ask Cashier Woman for my stament. ''Sorry but we only do mini-statements. You'll have to order it online''.
So I go home, have a look online, it'll onl*snip*


HTML generation in PHP

31st August 2010

I'm currently toying with the idea of building some classes for generating HTML from PHP code. The idea is to try to cut down on the mix-mash you can get of HTML and PHP, especially to remove all of the <?php ?> tags you end up having everywhere.


Small Search Boxes

18th August 2010

Today I fancied building some small search boxes, so here they are:
If you like any, then feel free to rip and steal any.

Today I've drawn a Space Giraffe:


Search Boxes

8th August 2010

I've been knocking up little 5 minute tid-bits of graphics over the last few days in Gimp. Just trying out quick ideas that spring to mind.
Here are a selection of search boxes I went with in the end:
and here are the original search boxes*snip*

It was held in the ancient city of Canterbury in the UK. First we got some lunch:


FujiFilm Finepix J28 example pics

4th August 2010

According to Jay a large percentage of visitors are to see his example pics for his camera. So here are some example shots of my new camera, the Fuji J28!
This is a shot of my back garden, it's not bad.
Here is a shot of som*snip*


Am I being paranoid?

28th May 2010

I've been searching for somewhere to live for next year for a few months. It's a long and unforgiving process. Finally found a great house last monday. I've only spoken to the other guys in the house via e-mail; they had someone pull out from their group a*snip*


Long week

21st May 2010

This is a bit of a random scrawl. Currently I'm finishing my degree. I have three weeks of exams, today is the end of week two and what I consider to be the peak of my examness. I have 6 in total, and including todays it means 5 are now down (with my last *snip*


Just went to see a lectuer...

28th April 2010

Just spoke to one of my lecterers about an assignment I lost marks on because it was ''too complicated''. That was all the feedback he gave, nothing more. I found all of the optimal solutions and altered the algorithm to lower the memory usage by o*snip*



10th April 2010

As some may know here I've recently been interested in changing my sleeping pattern over to a Polyphasic schedule. This means I will sleep multiple times a day, rather then just once.
REM sleep is the only part of sleep which is really crutial. Duri*snip*


Tesselation Fail

2nd April 2010

Just found this spelling mistake on CNET. I'm not too annoyed, except that they also included the incorrect spelling highlighting.

Monitor Woes

21st September 2009

2 weeks ago I bought a new monitor, a 19' ViewSonic flat screen to match my current 19' ViewSonic flat screen monitor. It was refurbish and didn't include it's original box, but was dirt cheap at just £66 including postage.
1 week later it ar*snip*

Ubuntu Review

25th May 2008

I've been meaning to write this up for a long time, my review of using Ubuntu 7 from about January onwards. In reality though it's more of a list of problems, things I didn't like and things I did.
One point I'd like to make is that although the Linux alt*snip*
