Tumblr Bollox Pollock 02 Jan 2011
I was hoping that Santa Claus might have brought the folks at Tumblr some new servers for Christmas. But apparently not, as I’m still getting that bloody annoying “…​Over Capacity…​” message almost every time I try to do something on the site. So in homage to the now legendary Twitter Fail Whale, I present the "Tumblr Servers are Bollox Pollock" ... [ Read More ]

Nice Animation 29 Dec 2010
Quite a nice wee combo of stopmotion and computer graphics used in this German promo campaign for Google Streetview. And it’s good to see the perennial old “Living Sketchbook” idea still has legs! There’s also a page here with some info on how it was made. ... [ Read More ]
Premature Felicitation 24 Dec 2010
Seeing as how I’ll be doing the rounds tomorrow; stuffing my face with booze and food, and unlikely to be going anywhere near the comp to upload this, you’ll have to accept my Christmas greetings a bit early. Have a good one everybody and, as Tiny Tim would say: "Gawd bless us, one and all!" ... [ Read More ]
We Don`' Need to Show You Any Steenkin`' Bhajis! 24 Dec 2010
</source> It’s good to find some classic movies occasionally, amongst the mountains of brain-dead dross on Blinkbox. Last night I unearthed one of my all-time favourite westerns "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre". The only problem is that, for some unaccountable reason, every time I watch this film I find myself hankering after an Indian takeaway! ... [ Read More ]
Button Loon 24 Dec 2010
I’ve been working on my forum website makeover for most of today again. Because I border on being OCD when it comes to how things look, I spent several hours designing a set of iPhone style buttons, just so I could replace a couple of minor buttons on the forum interface --as the built in ones were putrid Windoze style crappy gifs. I didnae design these from scratch, but based them on an iPad GUI template set very helpfully published by these folks.... [ Read More ]
Bracket Monkey 19 Dec 2010
Today I’ve been "doing my brackets`", as the missus calls it; trying to port the immensely popular cough! Appletalker Forum I run from its current Unclassified Newsboard [UNB] software [which has been abandoned by the developer] over to a new forum software, called Simple Machines Forum [SMF], which should future-proof Appletalker for at least the forseeable future and --even more importantly-- allow me to build a forum theme which formats up nicely on smartphones....

Cheeky Chappies! 17 Dec 2010
Found on my whiteboard yesterday, when I went into college. After a bit of waterboarding and ‘robust interrogation techniques’, Robert and Karl confessed Karl confessed and dobbed in Robert too. Hmmm…​ methinks some grades might have to be adjusted downwards! ... [ Read More ]
It's Official - We Rock! 17 Dec 2010
It was nice to see so many students, both past and present out for our little soirée at Jabez Clegg last night and also nice [albeit quite blush inducing] to have so many of our former students come up to Alex, Griff and myself and tell us that --since they’ve moved onwards and upwards to 3rd years on degree courses at ‘proper’ universities-- they’ve retrospectively begun to really appreciate just how good the teaching they’d received from us had been....

Chrimbo Quoffs 14 Dec 2010
Just to remind you all; Christmas drinkies will be in the Function Room --or whatever the Hell it’s called!-- at Jabez Clegg on Thursday evening, from 7pm '`til 1am. Tickets are a measley £2 and are available from all good tutors [and some rubbish ones]. Those students wishing to show their appreciation of the fabulous teaching they have received from me during the course of the year may do so by placing pints of Guinness in my sweaty paws, for the duration of the night....

While My Guitar Gently Weeps 12 Dec 2010
I notice that the bookies are offering odds of 17-to-one on a Beatles track being the Christmas Number One single. I might well have a flutter on that, so I might! When Apple first announced the arrival of The Beatles on iTunes I, like most other folks, said "So what? --’the kids’ today dinnae even know who The Beatles are and the people who know who The Beatles are already have all their music anyway!...
