On ReSiSt-cms

As always, most things are not straight forward. Take for instance ReSiSt-cms – the title of this post. The product was coming along quite nicely until a screenshot was required for the Windows look and feel at which point disaster struck! In coding land if you want to have a paragraph (or some words strung […]

Setting up (or turning off) Jetty 7 Logging programmatically

Jetty, for all of its words of wisdom, namely “Don’t deploy your application in Jetty, deploy Jetty in your application.”, it seems to want to basically become a new Tomcat server. For instructions on how to do anything in Jetty, it will regale you with how you put it in some xml configuration file and […]

On RSSCMS

On RSSCMS “Alas, poor yoric, I knew him well” 1 I feel as though poor old rsscms never had a chance to really make its impact on the world, and now it is dead. Well, mostly dead – it is now version 2! Not that I ever released any of the code before – but […]

OK, so it has been a long time in between posts… I decided that I had best get back on the horse and pump out some more – in between waiting for the WWDC and actually watching it. I noticed that a rather nasty hack was making its rounds on the web, to which this […]

Why Internet Explorer Should Support Firefox Extensions

Read in this post Breaking: Internet Explorer 8.1 Eagle Eyes Leaked. And yes, I am well aware that it is an April Fool’s joke. This is not such a far-fetched idea… Firefox extensions are coded in XUL1, which is a powerful XML based user interface language. The specifications are open and readily available which means […]

Blog Dead

That about says it all folks – the blog is dead – well, obviously if you are reading this, the blog is alive again, but just the blog part of it died. It seems that the .htaccess file got corrupted – I am looking at you wp-supercache!

Tomes ahoy

A new section of pages has been added to the site entitled ‘Tomes’. This will become the lengthy article section which would otherwise have to be spread over multiple posts, or alternatively one extra-ordinarily long post – neither of which appeal to me. You will notice that I have already completed one of them – […]
