Have a very happy Christmas!

Transporter 3

Friday, December 12th, 2008

Went to see Transporter 3 at the Liverpool One Odeon last night. It delivers exactly what it says on the packet – a straight forward action film. Of the three films I’d say its plot it probably the most coherent (well as coherent as any of them). I’d like to have seen more of François […]

The Good, The Bad and the Upside Down?

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

No not a new Peter Jackson and Russell Crowe remake of the Sergio Leone classic just a little accident with the film at the Philharmonic tonight. Then I did some pretty awful things when I was a projectionist so I’ll not hold it against them.

Stay on target…

Sometimes the biggest problem I find when writing isn’t writing too few words its writing too many. Stop heckling from the back – I know when you’re trying to get past the end of the first chapter of a three volume novel trilogy to propel you into the best seller list so you can spend […]

New Glasses Yeh!

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

Got my glasses back with the new lenses today – apparently they were waiting for me to contact them – strange that they went to a lot of trouble checking my address, phone number, work phone number, mobile phone number and address when I ordered them so they could let me know as soon as […]

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

Spent some time wrapping the script I started on last night into wxPython but mostly I’ve just been sciving off tonight.

Vue Texture Resizer

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

One perenial problem reported by Vue users is running short of memory. Part of the problem is that it is so easy to import objects that are loaded down with image based textures, bump maps, reflection maps etc. At the moment its a bit of a pain to hunt down all the textures, make copies […]

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

Well almost a year since I last posted about Joomla and I find myself gearing up to a development based on it.

I use the Liverpool to Norwich rail service several times a year to get to a variety of destinations. Central Trains were never perfect but East Midlands Trains seem to take pride in getting it wrong. Where Central Trains would provide vouchers as compensation when late with an explanation of the cause I’ve yet to […]

Up the Parthenon

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

I’ve been saving this for a night when I couldn’t face NANOBLOWHATONEARTHAMISTILLDOINGTHISFORMO and with 5 days to go… Possibly the worlds oldest joke book found at the BBC. By which I mean I read the report on the BBC web site not that their still using it to write jokes for sitcoms. Read more about […]
