    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 […]

  • Nuke your favourite places with Nukemap

    Enterprising soul Alex Wellerstein, has come up with a novel use for Google maps. You can now drop pin on any City, town or elementary school and see how different sized nuclear warheads would devastate them. It’s a little scary really, popping it down on a place you’re very familiar with makes it all that […]

  • Get all nostalgic with retro MMO Browser Quest

    Foxy! Fancy spending 10 minutes with a charming 8bit looking MMO? Well now you can, thanks to a neat little browser game called Browser Quest. The game is made by Mozilla and whilst there is only 5 or 10 minutes of “Questing” it’s a nice, relaxed jaunt through what feels like such a familiar world. […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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.

  • 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.
