  • JW Flash player skin ‘Skinimal 2’

    I have nearly always used JW FLash player to play all of the original video content I have put on this site over the years but pretty much used the bog standard player and skin for that whole time. Never really tried to skin it. Lately though I thought I would give it a try […]

So if like me you’re sick of that garish blue then check out the links below to pimp out your Overclockers forums and make it a little more professional looking. OVERCLOCKERS DARK THEME: To use […]

  • A few Picasa web albums favicons

    I’ve been using Picasa a lot recently and paid the $5 for the extra storage as it’s very reasonable and I’ve got all of my photos from the past ten years nicely organised. If you’re interested you can check out my public gallery and see how messed up I am… Anyway I’m a little disappointed […]

  • Dreamhost in review

    I have been with Dreamhost now for over a year and I thought I would share my experiences. I first signed up on a special deal for a completely unlimited package with all the disk space and bandwidth I can use for $10 a month (£6.50 to me). Obviously pretty cheap when I had previously […]

  • New look Old look

    As you may or may not have noticed I have reverted back to the theme I originally used for the site, got sick of the mystique skin just being too big. One day I’ll have to design my own skin! Until then I have updated this one with lots of little icons. As you may […]

  • More UFOs, More PHPs and PNGs

    X-COM Apocalypse So after completing the other X-COM games’ UFOpedias I finally found the images to make the X-COM Apocalypse UFOPEDIA, probably the most important because there doesn’t actually appear to be another one online anywhere. Yet again I used more PHP to achieve relative page links by using elseif statements, much easier yet again […]

  • Transparency Thinger

    Got bored again and as usual coded some completely random an useless piece of php. This one basically lets you input the url of any image on the net and then outputs the image on 4 different shades of background from black to that lovely chequered “transparency” image. It took a little while to perfect […]

    I’ve been using my G1 quite a bit to browse the web lately and as you know I have an extensive image gallery which I like to use in posts on forums etc. Well now I can both directly upload to that gallery by using a handy ftp program on Android and browse the gallery […]

  • A few new pages

    New hotness I was snooping through Google Webmaster tools I was intrigued by their 404 error page helper which tries to add useful links to your error pages. So I decided to set about making my own error page which was as helpful as possible, I know that it’s not the most popular or important […]

  • Streaming video

    After hours of trying last night I’ve finally perfected video streaming from my server, basically this means that like on Youtube I can now put videos up and be able to seek to any point within the video without having the whole file loaded, something which I thought was not possible without custom server side […]
