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.
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
Hello everyone, Following on from the post earlier this week – ya know, where it was oh so quiet… I’ve been working on the updated Guesthouse game (which isn’t ready for the public just yet) but will feature shiny visuals, achievements and a more business-simulation feeling to it. I wrote
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
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
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.
Thou currish half-faced canker-blossom! You know when you see an image with some Shakespeare-themed insults on the internet and think “I could make an online insult generator out of that”….. No?….. Huh. Well I did! Saw something on The Poke (credit to Forky7 on Imgur originally) Used an online OCR
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
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
Meta Viewport Responsive Design Brain Melt! One more brief update this month! I have added responsive styles to the site, to offer more suitable content for smaller and mobile devices. Firstly the navigation menu at the top has been updated, so this now displays in an alternative, vertical layout when
Work in progress I’ve been pretty busy recently so have not given much time to the site. A few bits are still broken since the move and redesign which will take a major reworking to fix (school and tools). In the meantime, I’ve been teaching myself some new skills ready
New and shiny The site has a new layout and design which is being completed over the next few days. Some bits will look old or weird until I go through everything, so bear with me. That’s it for now – speak soon.
