  • Off Topic: 14 mile Marsden March 2017

    On Sunday 19th March 2017 I completed the 14 mile Marsden March along with my wife, Jemma, and her sister, Aislinn. I'm pleased to say that so far we've raised over £1,300 plus gift aid and there's more still to come in. All funds go towards The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity who have been doing an amazing job supporting my wife's other sister, Amanda. The full story is on our fundraising page https...

  • How you can use PHP within JavaScript!

    A while back I was struggling to explain how a piece of code which showed some PHP within a JavaScript (JS) function could work. As it was only within a comments section, it was difficult to go into full details with examples, so I decided to do a blog post on it.

  • Why Remove the Comments Section from your Blog or Website?

    I have now removed the comments section from my blog. Why? Because it's not needed nor was it used. When I built the site, I included the comments section on my blog posts as it was easy to do and I had this idea that I would start interacting with users about my posts. However, I rarely get comments (probably mainly because I'm bad at keeping my blog updated) and so even when I did get one, I acc...

  • Removing the Blur from Background Images on High Pixel Density Devices

    Another problem I ran into when building my first mobile game (using HTML, CSS and JS) was that while testing it on my phone I found my graphics were all blurred. Quite obvious that it was because my phone has a high pixel density screen as many do now. However, my graphics are pretty much all applied as CSS background images and I had not had to deal with this issue before in anything other than ...

  • Beware when using CSS Animation on a Telerik Platform App

    I recently used Telerik Platform (http://www.telerik.com/platform) to build my first mobile game (Wah! http://www.ampzone.com/projects/wah). It was a bit of an experiment as I didn't know how well a game built with HTML, CSS and JS would work out on a mobile device. While I feel I have plenty of room for improvement, overall I think the test proved a success. I'm just going to write about one issu...

  • Off-Topic: Winter Themed Cake

    This is possibly my greatest success so far with my cake making. I needed to create a winter themed cake for my mums birthday. I had the basic idea of creating some pinecones with cereal and using a chocolate flake as a log. I also had ideas of adding some chocolate orange segments and some mini marshmallows for a bit of colour. I was also very keen on trying out wrapping the cake in chocolate tha...

  • Off-Topic: Christmas Chocolate Making

    I decided to have a go at making some chocolates as Christmas presents this year. I made 3 fillings, chocolate fudge, white chocolate truffle and milk chocolate truffle. Each of these I then balled up and rolled in tempered melted chocolate.

  • Release of Wah!

    I'm pleased to say that my first mobile game, "Wah!" is now available on Google Play for Android and the App Store for IOS.

  • Off-Topic: MacMillan Bake Sale

    My work was running a cake sale for the MacMillan Coffee morning last Friday, with a competition for the best cake. Having recently discovered an amazing chocolate cake recipe, I thought I'd have a go. I gave it my best shot, and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. It was the first time I had attempted the chocolate wrapped around the outside, and so made a few mistakes, but I feel confident I cou...
