Peep Defence v1.5

Hello again, another quick post about the tower defence game I’ve been working on. I tried to get this into a fit state for “version 2” last month but other things have taken up my time, so development has paused until I can set aside the time to sort it out properly.

Hoteliers – getting into the bizniz

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

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.

PDF Numberer

And BOOM! Numbers on the page! Just a quick update on a little tool I cooked up, as I needed some way to quickly number PDF files without using paid-for-programs, converting via MS Word, or using some slightly dubious websites that offer the service. I’ve made the PDF Numberer which
