Where'd it go?

I started the work on a WYSIWYG editor a number of months ago, this was due to the functionality of a feature at work. I open-sourced this project in the hope that others could benefit from it. Unfortunately I found out yesterday that this broke the Intellectual Property rights of…

Atom editor impressions

First Impressions I was lucky to be provided an invite for Github's new Atom editor by @pootsbook, who was hooked up by @isamlambert who does clever things with databases over at Github. I thought I'd note down some of my first impressions; given it's beta status and burst on to…

I'm moving to Blooie

As of this month I end my 2.5 years of employment with Audacious, and move to Blooie to become one of their developers. It's not just me though, I'll be moving there with @coding_bear. I'm really excited that we'll be able to continue working together, and alongside some…

Vagrant for beginners

Vagrant has been around for ages now. I've always loved the premise - i.e. being able to "Create and configure lightweight, reproducible, and portable development environments.". I loved the idea. For a while though I was reading a lot of bad reports, not about Vagrant as a whole or…

How to install a PositiveSSL certificate provided by Namecheap

I recently transferred all of my domains from 123-reg to Namecheap. Namecheap have recently given their website a makeover; it wasn't anything to look at before but it's lovely now! With the transfers I had the opportunity to buy SSL certificates for £1.20 (for the year). Who the hell…

Guitar Week 3

(I don't intend to write one of these every week, but I think it makes most sense to name them by weeks.) So I'm now half way in to my third week of learning. Which takes me up to stage 4 on the Justin Guitar Beginner's Course. I feel like…

Guitar Week 1

I've been learning guitar for just over a week now. I bought my guitar on 27/12/13, and started the justinguitar.com Beginner's Course properly on the 29/12/13. I count that day as where this little journey began. I'm up to stage 2 on the course, and…

Obligatory end of year post

Things don't always start well 2012 was rubbish. It started badly. It ended even worse. Christmas was an absolute shambles, and many things fell apart right in front of me that month. Heading in to the New Year I was, hmm, flaky? I had a bit of a breakdown come…

Social Media doesn't need to be hard

It's interesting watching companies on Twitter. It's like some just "get it" and others manage to push their customers away with it. Everyone's different, but for me I like to see a company engage with their customer base. That's all. Whether that be responding to a query, or even a…

jQuery's array-like console output

Just a quick post today. I was wondering the other day how jQuery achieves it's array-like output in console. For instance, when you log a jQuery instance this is the console output (example performed with $('body') in console): [<body class="editor"></body>] We get an array…
