Podcasts I’m into right now
I’ve been listening to podcasts for a long time and find them to be a huge source of inspiration. I was there for Diggnation (2005-2011!). In no particular order: The CSS Podcast. A couple of Googlers – Una Kravets and Adam Argyle talk us through all things CSS. There’s so much happening in CSS at…… Continue reading Podcasts I’m into right now
Is it on or is it off?
https://www.figma.com/blog/meet-us-in-the-browser/ Is it on or is it off? I saw this and I couldn’t tell if I was switching my preferences off or on. Some colour or pattern here, or even some text, would go a long way. Apart from that, the article highlights how closed mindsets, from even those that consider themselves open minded,…… Continue reading Is it on or is it off?
YT Izzo – Part Drei
I’m approaching the 1000km mark on this bike in the 3 months I’ve had it. A few more subtle changes have been made that further refine the bike to my tastes. I was very much on the border of large and extra large, I went with XL, and I realised the bike was marginally too…… Continue reading YT Izzo – Part Drei
HTML, hyperlinks, buttons, and onClicks

YT Izzo Part Deux
An exciting new instalment of me and my bike! It’s just over 3 weeks since I took delivery and I’ve managed to amass 370km (that’s 229 miles for you Proud of Yorkshire folk). Some 1 hour rides, some 5 hour rides, and all as off-road as possible. Not bad, thanks lockdown! It looks great! I…… Continue reading YT Izzo Part Deux
Hello YT Izzo
Earlier this week I took delivery of the brand new YT Izzo Pro in size XL. Here are my initial thoughts after about 6 hours doing my local well-trodden lockdown loops. It’s pretty pretty in Ghostship Green. It’s probably important to understand where I’m coming from to give context to thoughts. I’ve previously been riding…… Continue reading Hello YT Izzo
I’ve been teaching
Last year I was invited to give some training on HTML and CSS as part of my employer’s graduate scheme. Some of the students have a degree in computery courses, others are new to the world of programming. I had to fill around 5 hours over two mornings. It went well. Well, the truth is,…… Continue reading I’ve been teaching
No thanks Apple Watch
I had a Garmin watch. Which I wasn’t impressed with. It was just OK. The user interface and quality of their app store wasn’t good, and the user submitted watch faces embarrassingly bad. I liked being connected though. One day the whole watch reset itself and the watch face I had in there I couldn’t…… Continue reading No thanks Apple Watch
