To celebrate, rather than record the usual show of about 1hour the hosts organised a 12 hour spectacular pulling together some of the brightest and most interesting people in the web industry. There were experts on coding and design, CSS and CMS, […]

Random website sham again?

A friend got another call from a web design company today. This time they are claiming that that a government scheme is there to help companies with websites. For £149 per year they can make a site with a shop. A quick scan of their site shows that that package is £199 per year. The […]

Bow before the king of the nerds

Copy and Paste

It seems a cocked up copy and paste job has broken the tags. Bah! Edit: Although my copy/paste of WordPress installs did bust stuff it was actually the latest version and plugins which did. All sorted after much hair being torn out – and I can’t afford to do that much more!

Horrible code

Going through an XNA tutorial I came across this: [code lang=”csharp”] protected void CheckBulletHits() { // Check to see of any of the players bullets have // impacted any of the enemies. for (int i = 0; i < iMaxBullets; i++) { if (bullets[i].IsActive) for (int x = 0; x < iTotalMaxEnemies; x++) if (Enemies[x].IsActive) […]

Well I eventually gave up on SQL Server CE after suffering their install process again after installing Visual Studio SP1. I did a review of most of the databases around and what I wanted to do with them. I spotted Firebird. Downloaded it and a GUI. A GUI with the only option to hand edit […]
