    1. Traffic Updates: RSS -> SMS

      Posted on

      Since moving down to Bristol, I have been subscribing to the Underscore mailing list – of which I’m guilty of non-participation. One of the threads today made me realise the potential of user empowerment using “Web 2.0” services and technologies. The thread was called “RSS -> SMS“, Andy wrote: After my wife took three hours to get to work this morning due to the M5 being shut, I’ve built a Yahoo pipe that takes the…

Right, back to work!

    3. Accessing the jQuery DOM in an Ajax callback

      Posted on

      Whilst developing the admin pages for Pez, I wanted to add some nice features to the UI. My first choice for a JavaScript framework is jQuery. I’ve used other frameworks before, (like mootools, script.aculo.us and YUI), but I just seem to get on better with jQuery, (although mootools is a very close second). Last night I was playing around with the Ajax/jQuery.get() method – it was the first time I’d used it, and was having…

    4. Introducing Pez…

      Posted on

      In between my many projects (paid and personal) and entering fatherhood… I seem to have found some time to start up an open-source project with Ben Taylor, (my old comrade from the Scream days). I’ve mentioned it a couple of times on my blog recently, but hadn’t yet got around to introducing it… then Ben beat me to it! So without further ado, here is Ben’s introduction to Pez!

    5. One Less Vista Woe

      Posted on

      To follow up to my rant a few weeks ago (More Vista Woes on my old blog), it seems that Microsoft have taken note everyone’s complaints about the forced reboot. After putting off my Windows Vista updates for as long as possible, I finally succumbed… Once all the updates were installed, I’m prompted with the same “Restart your computer to finish installing important updates” message. But now the countdown timer is gone!!! So at least…

    6. Scrobbling my BBC Radio listening on Last.fm

      Posted on

      A couple of months ago I’d heard that the BBC Radio Labs had developed a desktop widget that scrobbled the songs you listen to on BBC Radio (currently only available for Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music and 1 Xtra) [via Last.fm] I’m not a big fan of gimmicky desktop widgets –  it’s bad enough that Vista comes with them as default – some people love them, some hate them… I just prefer less clutter…

    7. IE View Lite 1.3.2+ not compatible with Firefox 2.0

      Posted on

      I used all sorts of add-ons and extensions for Firefox, (I’ll get around to writing a blog post on that soon too). Since I do a lot of web-development, I switch between Firefox and Internet Explorer frequently during a build. To make this easier, I’ve been using Grayson Mixon’s IE View Lite. But with the latest upgrade (version 1.3.2), it broke in Firefox 2.0! (This made me sad) :-( I’d been holding out for the…

    8. Vista SP1 Hibernation problems

      Posted on

      After a couple of unsuccessfully attempted to install Windows Vista Service Pack 1; it seems that I “forgot” to disable my anti-virus software! Then it installed fine. Vista does seem to perform better/quicker since SP1, but, for me, it introduced a major show-stopper! Hibernation stopped working! I google’d the problem to see if anyone else had the same issue — and knew how to resolve it. It took me a while, probably because Vista SP1…

    9. Strange goings-on

      Posted on

      The first time it happened I thought it was odd. After the second time I seemed very weird. Now that it’s happened a third time – I’m just baffled! What am I rambling on about I hear you ask?! This… This picture on Flickr has been favourited 3 times – which is nice! However the strange thing going-on here is that those Flickr users (who favourited it) have no photos themselves and have only favourited…
