Another short post to say ….. we made it! We are now self-employed, and can now call ourselves Hoteliers! We officially moved into the bed and breakfast last Friday, had our first guest on Saturday, then collapsed in a heap on Sunday (slightly channelling Craig David right there). We’ve just finished
For a new chapter to begin, an old chapter must come to an end…. but what an ending it was! This blog post summarises the absolute mayhem, joy, and bizarre hilarity that was my final week working at the University of Sussex. It was one of the most unexpectedly creative
Hello all, As alluded to in several previous posts, now it’s time for the big announcement. At the end of April, my partner and I will be leaving Brighton to move up to Cumbria.
Been a busy old month, basically because I’ve been working on several different side-projects at once! I thought I would summarise what I’ve been up to in the past month or so, serving as a bit of a status update and pulling together my thoughts. The main thing I’ve wanted
Hey everyone, Just a short blog post today, as I’m spending most of my time trying to get back on track with my videos. It’s been a bummer of a week, not helped by some major issues with uploading videos to Youtube.
I have been playing around with creating Youtube videos for a couple of weeks now and have stumbled many times among the way! This post is a short collection of the challenges and issues I’ve run into so far. I’ve also included a few of my current solutions for reference!
A summary of my Eurovision 2017 experience, as told through Twitter live tweeting. I liked quite a few of the songs this year – lots of weird on show and overall a fun, positive event. Fair warning: contains graphic depictions of an arse (or several). You have been warned! Let’s get
Another Ingress-related post today! I really enjoy hearing other Ingress players shouting their own nicknames for glyphs in a crowded pub. Some of the nicknames make perfect sense – some variant of “box” or “square”, maybe a “rocket” or “bell”. Then again, some people’s nicknames take a little more explanation.
Today I’m very excited to be announcing the launch of my new Youtube channel – Eclectic Gaming! Eclectic Gaming The channel has live streams, console, mobile and (soon) PC games videos, along with some funny stuff and community interaction as well. Make sure to give the videos a watch and be
Another short post today – as I seem to be mentioning old blogs – I thought it was a good opportunity to do a throwback post to my old review blog! Take a look at the Eclectic Electric Review at: Eclectic Electric Review
Just a quick post today as I found my old work blog where I provided updates on my office’s sporting challenges a few years ago. My complete blog can be viewed on the University’s splash pages. Some highlights I had forgotten all about….
A very different post this week, speaking at length about one of my hobbies with a summary of useful tips and tricks about Ingress – so feel free to scroll past if that isn’t your thing!
This post goes through a couple of the things I have been working on for work, not strictly part of my main role but certainly positive for team spirit and bonding. Each year the University where I work holds a number of sport challenges for staff, to encourage participation in healthy
So…. this is the first proper post on the new blog (version 2). The new blog, and indeed the new site domain which you may have noticed is now http://eclecticapp.xyz, are down to two fairly large disasters of recent weeks. This post will outline these and the events which have followed.
This post marks the new blog for Eclectic App Development. The new blog is powered by WordPress and will serve partially as a testing ground for WordPress designs and themes, although mainly acting as the main blog for Eclectic App Development. Additionally, as I can use the WordPress features to
Trying, Working, Learning. Been a bit too busy to update the site over the past few months, in particular starting a new job, then trying to learn some new programming and IT skills before tackling some bigger projects. Used a few different learning tools over the years to pick up
So… the first part of the year has come and gone in rather a blur. For my learning however, it has been exceptionally productive. After starting on a path to programmer/designer/developer a few months ago, I have now got a fairly good fundamental grasp of the following languages: HTML XML
