Sorting through a cupboard recently, I stumbled across an iPod Touch that I haven’t seen for many years. It’s a 4th Generation iPod Touch, which were made between 2010-2012. Looking at the photos on it, the first photo is dated 2012, so I’m guessing I got it around then. What’s interesting, though, is turning it […]
Whilst new rules are sorting out many aspects of WordPress development that causes headaches for users (e.g. standardised admin messaging), how plugins (and, in some cases, themes) allocate menus in WP Admin are not currently covered. As a result, some developers (and it’s note-worthy that most of those that fall into this category are making […]
My WordPress plugins have been in desperate need of a lick-of-paint when it comes to the images used on them for a while – and by “images”, I mean those used in the WordPress repository. There are actually 2 you can provide – an avatar and a banner image. I’ll come to the banner in […]
It’s become an on-going joke with my work colleagues that I have issues with security at airports. And no one airport has been as bad as Manchester. I’m just back from a family holiday in Germany and we flew out from Manchester and, let’s say, they really excelled themselves this time.

My eldest daughter came back from Tokyo recently and bought me some presents. She knows I love stationary so that was what she got me.
I’ve been using Amazon Prime Music Unlimited for a couple of years now and can genuinely say how rather good it is. If you’re an Amazon Prime user, you get the more basic Prime Music included. However, for all the music you could wish for you need to pay a little more for the Unlimited […]
Back in 2014 I started using a pair of Creative T30 wireless speakers. Considering how small they are, and lack a subwoofer, the sound was always pleasingly good. For the last 2.5 years, they’ve been paired to my work MacBook to great effect. But that’s now come to an end.
