Mr Muscle

It was the last Sex In the City last night on Channel 4 and was, well, pretty shit to be honest. I really do like Sex In The City, but the last episode had more cheese than a block of chedder eating a three-cheese cheeseburger. Yes, pretty cheesy. After I had watched the final episode […]

Advantage

Sorry for a late update today by the way. You may have noticed some network trouble with jonobacon.org earlier. Not sure what happened, but I think it is about fixed now. Anyway, I went over to Birmingham today to the Open Advantage opening do. Impressive place, and I am looking forward to seeing what potential […]

Reaction

It seems that initially LUGRadio Episode 3 is doing well. Lots of posts on the forum and a new record of users reading the forum at the same time are all good signs. I was taking a look at Simon Willison’s blog and noted two interesting finds that can be plugged into Firefox. The first […]

Overall it seems quite an interesting system, although Objective-C is taking a little while to sink in. I suppose this […]

Well, the forum is pretty much complete now. I have finished the major chunks of what I wanted to write. As I said before, this forum code is being written for a book, so I cannot put the code online at the moment. I may well be able to do this in the future but […]

I am just hacking this forum at the moment. Most of it is pretty much working – members, categories, forums, threads etc. I just need to finish up some things, make it look pretty with CSS and then tighten the code. I want to finish it today so I can start working it into the […]

Orange belt

Well, I went, struck, I blocked, I kicked, I kata’d and I sparred. After two hours of training I left the dojo with an orange belt. I am, as you can imagine, well chuffed. After the grading I legged it back home (if you can call ‘legging it’ driving), picked up my guitar and case […]

Nervous

I am nervous. This is because I am gonna do my orange belt karate grading today. This is my second grading and it is pretty nerve wracking. Fingers crossed.
