10k Apart Entries (Shameless Self Promotion)

August 23, 2010

0

So I finally finished my two entries in the 10k Apart competition and the second one has been added to the site. TwitFlick is a simple app without any real purpose in life. It simply makes a couple of Ajax calls to Flickr and Twitter and displaying the latest 10 entries of each together. JQuery […]

Virtual Private Server and Other Distractions

August 15, 2010

There goes the consistent posting habit. At least a couple of weeks isn’t as bad as it has been before and there have been a number of reasons for not writing a blog post until now. Virtual Private Servers and Cakes As some of you may know by now I’ve been working on a new […]

New Theme

As you may have noticed I’ve been conspicuously absent for a while again. Part of the reason is that I tend to be a perfectionist with my writing. I had three or four posts that I’d started and never finished about the election, university visiting days and my completed dissertation so I’ve decided to scrap […]

So I’ve decided to move my blog to WordPress hosting. The new address is https://justmark1987.wordpress.com. There are a number of reasons for this but the main one is that my old host (www.zymic.com) was fine for playing around with but their free offering was particularly slow when using MySQL. Hopefully wordpress.com will be better and […]
