R.I.P. my Beloved Brother

Rest In Peace my Beloved Brother for you shall always be in our hearts and minds. I miss you greater than words can say, may we meet again xxx

Exotic Paradise

I really should find some things to write about. My friend, Chris, has a blog about his travels in Asia. I can’t help but feel an exotic country might help fuel my desire to post, and maybe even crack out my camera more often. Exotic countries aside I did venture into the garden today — […]

Comment Spam

It seems someone has cracked the Turing test of AkoComment bot yet again. Ako, where are thou? Joomla 1.5 has been out for a while now — I’ll look at upgrading soon. Hopefully it’ll have some better safeguards against this sort of thing. Well, I’ve been playing with my Mac recently, and I’m VERY impressed. […]

Antipathy of Web Design?

I was browsing for some MySQL tutorials today and fell upon one of devarticles.com pages. It provided the basic information needed, however, I couldn’t help but feel the ethos of good web design was lost amongst what could only be describes as stupid fuggin adverts and rollovers. The main content of the page is lost […]
