Hmmm, yes

Still ill unfortunately. Despite the fact that my throat is pretty bad and I still get the shivers, I cracked on with a day of planned PHP training with Sooz. This kind of worked out well. I was in no fit state to leave the house, but I could still be productive and do some […]

Take a look at this: Sure, it looks pretty simplistic and the screenshot does not really convey its purpose, but that is the point – it is simple, and it has no point. This is a little test script that I wrote this morning to get a GtkTreeView working with Python. Although it may not […]

Back soon

Astute readers of jonobacon.org will have noticed a distinct lack of blog postings. When I say to people before Christmas that I won’t be on the net much, I was not kidding when I referred to this Christmas. This is about the third time I have ventured onto the net, mainly because of a lack […]
