New Year mayhem

I’m now in my Dad’s place in Clare, chilling untill I go up to Carrick-on-Shannon to meed all the lads for a New Year celebration extravaganza. I’ve stocked up on my Miller and am ready to get pissed as a fart. I’m looking forward to next year and I have a few New Year resolutions […]

Toshiba L5 madness

I previously noted that my Dad had a Toshiba Libretto L5. When he was in Japan though, he upgraded to a super tiny Sony Vaio. What did he do with the L5…. Gave it to me he did. I am in awe of this beast.. so bloody light and quick too. I just ordered another […]

Embedding SVG

I wanted to use SVG for a report on one of our new projects so when creating the XHTML wireframe/templates, I included some sample SVG graphs, I used the embed tag which worked well but was invalid XHTML strict. I had a look around but everywhere used the embed tag. [code lang="xml"] [/code] I thought […]

What a pillock

Damn Dan Brown and his “The DaVinci code“. This morning I started to get an earlier train as they have changed the timetable, meaning it is dark when I get to Abergele. With it being dark and the fact that I was so engrossed in my book, I missed my stop. I jumped out of […]

OSX and Ubuntu- dual boot

After playing around with Ubuntu Live (PPC) on my ibook, this weekend my mission was to get OSX and Ubuntu dual booting on my ibook. Here’s how it went. Backup some of my important Docs and data from my existing OSX install Start clean install of OSX, creating 3 partitions, one shared, one for OSX […]

Aardvark’d DVD + Karova.com

I bought Fog Creek‘s (Joel on Software) “12 weeks with geeks” DVD about a month ago and it arrived the other day. I was expecting a DVD with plenty of interviews about a software project’s lifecycle. This was not really what I got but what I did get was very entertaining and well worth the […]
