I’m going through a personal Beatles revival, although when I say that, I’ve never been a fan, so to speak. Being part of Thatcher’s yoof The Beatles were always a background noise; we sang their songs at school, everyones Mum had had a crush on one of them a decade or so ago, Paul was still rocking, I can’t really remember John being shot, but there wasn’t 24 hr news…

Hard Boiled is one of my all time favourites, Woo, Wong & Chow Yun-Fat together created a masterpiece. Stranglehold was fun, but Sleeping Dogs looks to be more undercover cop, Hong Kong, duel 9mm’s than its inspiration. An undercover cop, too deep in with the triad, Hong Kong based, open World title, was always going to be compared to Woo, so this post is probably already a cliche, but I…

HTML Table analysis

08/25/2012

This has to be one of the most interesting plugins for a web browser I’ve seen in a long time… perhaps since the advent of Flash! This fantastic plugin takes an HTML table, allows you to analyse the data, & save the results in an xls format. Mind blown!

I’ve been interested in the concept of web bots & spiders for a while, finally found time to investigate top level. Here’s a brief bit of code showing Reddit front page images, will share as I have more

I have a confession to make, I like data! I have qualifications for understanding it, I’m paid to play with it, & dammit I mess with it for fun. So while searching through google faq’s today for more detail on 2 step verification, I came across Fusion Tables. Here’s a link to a table I’ve put together of all Xbox titles, sourced from the wiki page I’ve found a cool…

I like the idea of dynamic web content, as an analyst I love charts as a tool to describe trend in data. So here’re the subscriptions to my free Bill Hicks app It’s Just a Ride, over the last 30 days. I’m going to look into what data of interest I can source online, & see what charts I can create. Thinking google office, or whatever the aka is, will…

Thank you!

An Android user as paid for my simple Bill Hicks app, when a free one is readily available 🙂 Thank you for helping to cover my costs! I play with technology solely for the fun & learning experience, never for the money… if that was the case I’d have quit long ago 🙂 Thanks again, & I appreciate anyone else donating for the non ad version, available here: Google Play:…

It wasn’t just the tanks they stole, but the full concept of the game. Does no one remember Blizzards Warcraft? Humans vs Orcs collecting minerals, dark areas of the map… sound familiar? But this then was plagerism of Warhammer, wonder what Games Workshops cut was? ign cc-designers-steal-from-warhammer

We all know of the Easter egg in gaming like the cake room in portal or the headless ghostin skyrim but they have all been found quickly. Notch-the creater of minecraft- says that there is a easter egg in minecraft. Not just that but it has been in their for over a year! What is it… A crafting recipe maybe herobrine. The thing is no-ones found out.
