Why Not Actually Finish Something You Have Started? Blog redesign

I’ve been planning on a blog redesign for at least 6 months now: probably more. Not much has happened. I need a kick up the bum.

I got all excited, I made a design, and then I did about a day’s work on the CSS. And then nothing. In order to nag myself into getting more done, I have decided to launch the unfinished theme. This is it. As you can see, its a little rough round the edges.

Wireframe me up

Just found an fun new webapp called Wirify. Basically, you save it to your bookmarks, load a page you would like to see in wireframe, and click the link. It then gives you a wireframed version of your site.

Sadly, it doesn’t get it quite right for most of my sites. It’s based on jquery, so there are a few issues in how it sees components placed. For example, http://allaboutchris.co.uk:

Just 1000 bytes A program is worth a thousand…?

For the last week or so I’ve been following the #JS1K competition. Short for “Javascript 1 kilobyte”, the competition is to see who can create a fully functioning javascript app in 1024 bytes or less.

Its hard to explain to the non geeks why this competition is impressive. Imagine trying to make a working bicycle, spending only 50p. Or building a house, but you are only allowed 27 bricks and a door. As a comparison, this little image on the right is 1000 bytes – but both the apps below have been made with the same amount of space!

MedRevise 4.0 is here!

After a month of live beta testing, the time has come to officially launch the new version of MedRevise.co.uk to the world at large. To find out the full story, read on…

Nearly five years ago, I arrived at medical school. And I realised I needed to make some notes. But I also wanted to use my computer, and so keeping them in order was important.

Day Thirteen – Unlucky For Some Teeth

Had a dream where all my teeth fell out! I was talking to you, and about 10 fell out. You were talking to me, and one of yours fell out too. I woke up with such a start, and felt my teeth, such a relief when they were really solid, and stuck in my gums lol.

Today was mostly spent doing the website – you can check current progress at www.tshwaranang.org. I also finished off DIY, leaving just one song to do.
