Welcome to my little place on the web.

I'm a software developer by day, but occasionally when time allows, I like to tinker with home automation, home theatre and retro gaming (basically anything geeky that involves a computer).

When I get time I'll try and blog about these projects here. I have also shared some of my software, which I hope may be of use to others. It's on my software page.

Happy new year and i'm still here !

Happy new year everyone. I hope everyone has had a great break.

2018 was a very quiet year for posts. I had hoped to release a couple of games, but well, it never happened. Mostly due to focusing most of my efforts on my new online shop newfangledthings.com. The shop will still keep me busy, but I really miss making games, so I am determined to get a game or two made this year, and probably some other fun projects. I might finally finish my DIY arcade cabinet too!?

Anyway this was just a quick post to give you a quick update to say that I'm still here... read more

OddsMonkey! Make profits. Not peanuts.

You may have noticed that I changed my top banner to OddsMonkey. I'm not normally one to push 'get rich quick' sites. But this is different. I have been a member for years now and I make a substantial tax free income from it.

You are basically betting on all outcomes, so can't lose. The video above explains it much better than me. This system does NOT suggest gambling.

Switched comments to Disqus

You may have noticed that I disabled comments from my website a number of months ago due to the ridiculous amount of spam comments I was getting. This was even after intergrating reCapture a few years ago. It looks like the bots are now getting too clever for the 'Googles I'm not a robot' web tools!


So today, after some very overdue website maintenace and improvements, I have added comments back to all blog posts. Please check them out. I have also move away from my own backend php and mysql solution. Instead i'm just using Dis... read more

Nearly there !!

Just a quick update this morning, as it's been a while! School holidays have been keeping me busy!

Anyway I have been busy fixing the last few bugs in lost little spaceman. Think I'm now just down to 4 bugs. Once these are ironed out it will be updated on Google play to the next beta. This will be the final version before it goes to final release. I may add Russian language before it goes to final release as I have had a lot of requests.


This new beta will have station 4, with another 81 rooms to navigate !

Look out for my next update... read more
