Just posting this so in the annuls of time there’s a marker to look back at and realise at what time the “open web” died (give or take a year). With all this hullabaloo regarding HTML5 (and it’s associated technologies, whatever they are on any given day) we’ve somehow managed to remove the single best … Read more
Just a celebratory post to signify my third WordPress skin and my 6th year of blogging! Try it out on your phone, tablet, or desktop and watch those pixels fly!!
Ok, this is a bit off topic but I attended Oxegen festival in Ireland recently. The music was good, the weather was crap, the punters in my campsite were worse. Some little bastard thought it would be funny to go into my tent and spread my belongings all over the campsite. Not cool. I found … Read more
Ok, so it’s actually the international year of astronomy – but I’d like to decree in a fairly dictatorial manner that it should be the year of alternative energy (and that’s not to say that I’ve got anything against astronomy 😉 In fact, I put it to you that not only should this year be … Read more

At first my comments below were driven largely by the offence taken (as an Australian) at Daniel Freeman’s post titled Australia. Check out the article, it refers to working in different countries and the opportunity that brings (or not as the case may be). Now I find over generalising isn’t a great way to make … Read more
My love hate affair with Google’s Picasa is starting to tilt more towards just being one of love. Picasa 3 is out (somehow I totally missed the Beta) and has some really great new features. I especially like the new video controls (no idea why it took them so long to implement a shuttle slider … Read more
This morning when doing my normal Googling I noticed two new icons associated with every search result. Here’s a screenshot (click for a larger image): As you can see there is a new arrow icon (promote) and a cross icon (remove). The purpose of which is explained on Justin Hileman’s site. He went into extensive … Read more
