The Arcade

14th May 2020

A huge arcade. Vast space, loads of cabinets.
But suddenly, an invasion..

The BBC decided to move in, removed a few units, and set up a temporary Snooker area, right in the middle of the arcade.

People were shunned out of the way, and ...then.. fro*snip*


Expensive Day

22nd April 2020

December 2018
Oven dying..
It's a fan oven.
We generally need to cook things at about 20 degrees above the higher (none-fan) temperature to cook properly.
The hobs can be quirky too.

Need a new oven. We'll leave it until after Xmas, since t*snip*


Selfish Whinge - Down Day

5th November 2018

Last week I got a new PIP disability form to fill in. 15 written questions describing in detail all the depressing issues that I have to deal with in day to day life.
I struggled through with my usual cheery demeanour, and filled in over 1000 words about*snip*


Another New Watch!

17th July 2017

I removed the Fitbit Blaze from my wrist, unclipped it from it's strap for the 50,000th time, and popped it into the charger. Something I'd done the day before.

7 days, it said. 'Average 7 day battery life'
After just a few months of owning i*snip*


Five Words..

16th July 2017

Working on a redux of Letter Lattice for iOS, and am in need of some nice groups of words to make the game a little more fun, and bulking up the numbers a little..

All I need a group of 5 little words (<12 letters) which all fit into an obvious c*snip*


iOS - Prepare for Submission - 2017

12th July 2017

I've been playing with Quadoban iOS for the past few days, and I think I'm nearly up to the point where I can submit it.

For those who haven't tried it, using Monkey-X to compile an iOS game is relatively easy.
Make sure your game runs in a*snip*


Rewatching ''1 Litre of Tears''

25th June 2017

I last watched the Japanese Drama Serial 1 Litre of Tears around about 2009/10.
A story of a young girl hit with a degenerative disease that destroys the link between her Spinal Cord and her Cerebellium.

Back then, it was simply a show that made me mor*snip*


Molly On The Couch

30th November 2016


This is the second day in a row that Molly's sat on the couch with me!!


Realistically, it's not me she's sitting with. It's the new blanket that she's see*snip*


Spilling my Noodles

22nd October 2016

Went downstairs, made a lovely bowl of noodles.
Came back to bed with noodles.
Sat noodles down, hopped into bed, leaned over to grab noodles.
Hand let go of noodles.
Noodles F'ing everywhere.
A right fucking mess.
About a month ago, my ha*snip*


Blippity Bleeep!

30th October 2015


At 4:30, something in my bedroom went ''blippity bleep''
I've no idea what it was, but it sounded like the noise Windows makes when you disconnect a USB device.
I woke up with a startle, and lay in bed for a few minutes, wond*snip*


Doctor Two

18th August 2015

Had an appointment to see the nurse, so headed all the way down to the health center.
My Blood Pressure hasn't been officially checked for a while, so they needed a new reading.
''Umm...'' Went the nurse, whose job it is to take readings like*snip*

Stripping it All Away

21st December 2014

Today I did something I should've done ages ago.

As some of you might've previously read, I recently took over the domain of LittleLever.info.
For the most part, this was a rather frivolous purchase, and it won't ever really come to anythin*snip*


Health Update

20th November 2014

Nothing new to add!

Just been up to Salford for my regular 6 month chat with Dr/Mr Leggate. [i](Google-fu for nosey peeps : Leggate Salford Royal )[/i]
The general gist was ''well, if it's not gotten any better, then chances are it never will.*snip*


I Stubbed My Toe...

30th September 2014

So.. I'm halfway through reorganising my bedroom, and as you can imagine, there are boxes and random items scattered all over the floor.
It's ...''manageable'', and I can just about shuffle my way from place to place, but .. Grrr..


Bedroom 2.0

15th September 2014

So... I ordered my new shelves..

[url=https://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/6094694.htm]Maine, Extra Deep bookcase, with Drawers, in ''Walnut Effect''.[/url]
The walnut should look good against my decades-old wood panelled bedroom *snip*


Health Update : August 2014

22nd August 2014

Last week saw the two year anniversary of [url=https://jayenkai.socoder.net/2012/08/home-again-home-again-jiggity-jig/]this post[/url], where I waffled and rambled on about my health condition. Mum suggested it was about time to write an update, so this i*snip*


20 Years Ago....

16th August 2014

As Mum got fed up of writing standard ''James missed school, again, because he had another migraine'' letters to the school all the time, she started writing more obscure notes to the teacher...

Amazingly, whilst reorganising her room, she's*snip*


New Laptop!?

4th June 2014

Last night I took the time to upgrade Monkey from 76c to 78f. (or something like that)
Seems it's going to be a little more work than expected, as they've significantly changed the template .html file, and I'm going to have to faff about making it nicely *snip*


Jay's Health Update : Jan 2014

30th January 2014

Had the GP out for a visit, today, and he checked my Blood Pressure whilst lying down, then standing up

A HUGE drop between the two stats, with my blood pressure plummeting when I stand. He suggests this could be the cause of my dizziness, or at the ve*snip*


Mr Impatient's GTAV Wait...

17th September 2013

GTAV Launch Day.
I pre-ordered my copy from Very, so I knew there'd be a wait.
I also knew which company would be handling my delivery.


..bloody Yodel...

So, when I eventually woke up at 9:30, and the game hadn't yet arrived, I wasn't a*snip*


Buggered for Life

13th September 2013

So, yesterday I went for my regular 6 month checkup.
Dr Leggate's disappeared on a holiday, or a fundraiser, or having a brew or something, so instead I got to see Nicola, who was one of the main neurologists whilst I was in.

Sat with her for about 20 *snip*


Apple's Pricing Strategy

11th September 2013

When I first heard the words ''iPhone 5c - CHEAPER iPhone'' my thoughts went a little like this..

iPad is £399
iPad with 4G is £499
Therefore, logically, it costs ''In Apple Prices'' (which we all know are stupidly over-the-o*snip*


Making a Desktop

11th August 2013

So, I finally figured I should make a wallpaper/desktop thing for August.

The other day, I made a quick little signature bar thing, for use on the Monkey Forum. Logo, background, and a few sprites from various games.
Turned out quite nice..
