A word that sounds ridiculous. Made up. Well, that’s because it is.
A word that makes sense to a few (probably both of you reading this post) but I’ll explain it for any who don’t know… and I’m sorry, for my casual reader it might get a bit techy (like that’s a surprise) Many years ago I was gifted a fish tank (long story) and a fish, who my brother had named Seb (although I am still to this day unsure if he’d caught the 2012 bug and named the fish after Seb Coe or
A few years ago, as part of a project I worked on, we sent a GoPro camera into the sky above the town centre here in Hull. A wonderful time was had by all, the young people were having fun seeing their city from a strange and new angle. Until, the giant red helium balloon made it’s escape (long story). I sat on the idea until this year when I was asked if I could do something over the summer holidays with the young people of Hull. “I could do some sort of balloon mapping phot
Hey. Another coding post I’m afraid (and I suspect the next post will also be code related to some extent). This will probably be a quick post, with hopefully a longer, more detailed post to follow…it will make sense. Maybe. So, on Thursday evening, Claire and I went to a thing. A really interesting thing that has kind of inspired me to do something a bit different. As a result of this I wanted to try and gather a bit of data from the Raspberry Pi and envirophat I have from t
This post contains code and is a bit techy. You have been warned…. Last month I took the plunge, and decided to subscribe to Magpi. For a couple of reasons. I missed out on the free Pi Zero last year (despite not having a use case for one, I want one) I missed out on the Google AI kit that they gave way recently because I couldn’t find a copy of the magazine in any local shops. There was a deal with a free Pi Zero W when you subscribed. Related to this was the fact that the R
First of all this is a coding post. A post about geeky techy stuff. If you are only here for the games, you can probably go away now. Maybe you are here for the comedy writing, then you can probably go away now. So for a while now I have had a Raspberry Pi, a small credit card computer (I think there might be a post in the archive). The RF sockets I use #exciting At present it’s main duty is as the timer for the lamps in my living room (among other things). It uses a simple R
Okay, So I know it’s been a while since I posted. There is a simple reason for this. Bloodborne. A week or two after it’s release I decided to treat myself to Bloodborne. It received a lot of good reviews but I was undecided. because I had never played any of the “Souls” games by From Software. Would I be able to do this? I’m known in my friend group for traditionally not being a finisher of games. (Although due to lack of disposable income this has changed in recent years) W
In the run up to Christmas I treated myself to a bundle from Square-Enix, it was £20 for 6 games, and you didn’t know what games you would get until a specific date. It was a risk, but I figured it was a cheap way to bump up my Steam list and get a few games for my PC in the process. I wasn’t expecting a lot of new games (plus my PC was bought to output to the TV as a media machine…allowing me to watch American Netflix and Sky Go) but I got a few interesting choices… Deus Ex
