4038Using Pygments to colour our training examples
A browser receives text in a stream - as black and white, if you like. But the human eye prefers colour, so that's how modern, syntax aware editors display it for you, highlighting particular aspects of the text such as html tags in a different colour. Look what I mean: For a number of years, we've ...

3991Email from Christopher Columbus to announce finding America?
These days, when I'm away I usually sit working online in my hotel room, waking early to check overnight what's happened. On the train, my phone rings (oops! shoud have been on mute) and I dash for the vestibule to answer. And I see about half of the people in travel waiting rooms online. We're in ...

3896An email marathon
Is sending out 26 different emails in a day a Marathon? After an eventful morning (read all about it on my facebook page), I travelled from home to set up the systems I'll be using for the course I'm giving the rest of the week. As they're not my machines, I felt I needed to make sure I knew how ...

3648iPad and iPhone programming - our seminar weekend with Xcode
Seeing the wood for the trees ... that's one of the major issues when you come to writing apps for the iPad and iPhone for the first time. And yesterday, Kyle, Elliot and myself sat down at a couple of Macs and came up with a demonstration first app from first principles. There's lots of decisions ...

3599Seeing how Melksham has changed over the years, via an iPad
I spent some time over the weekend working my way into iPad and iPhone programming, using XCode, and already I've written a "toy" application which lets me drag a slider and move through overlaid maps of Melksham to see how the town has grown over the years. The original map is dated 1888, ...

3584QR codes - graphics images that provide quick phone links
You'll have seen these printed "QR" codes turning up on printed documents such as railway timetables, brochures and business cards, and they allow you to wave your phone at the pattern and have a copy of the document (or other details) come up there in electronic form. How do they work? QR codes are ...

We got an unexpected chance to stop away for a couple of nights - Lisa, me and Gypsy - and yesterday we headed out.

Windows 7 went on sale at midnight ... and at ten past, I got my first bulk sales email with a subject line Windows 7 out now - time for a new PC. Slight pity that the graphic on the top of the email still says "PC World Recommends Windows Vista Home Premium" ;-). But - in all seriousness - how will ...

75It's just not cricket
We love living in Melksham and it's so easy to do net searches for resources in the town; perhaps we should be thankful that our forebearers loved it too and never left to set up an identically-named city elsewhere in the world. By contrast, we've found it very hard to search for bathroom suppliers ...
