I was not a big fan of Titanic, James Cameron’s ode to sinking ships and Celine Dion, but it’s impact on moviegoers cannot be underestimated. Plus it did rake in the odd billion dollars. So when there was an opportunity to get my hands on the 3D Blu-Ray […]

Coder by day, gamer and film fan by night. Websites are one of many things I do. A big fan of classic/retro gaming especially of Atari systems. I can also cook. ;)
Got a chance to check out the iPhone 5 thanks to my lovely wife upgrading her iPhone 4 and impressions are strangely mixed. The phone itself is a marvelous device on first glance. The new screen is impressive and the phone itself is scarily light. It really does feel like […]
Part of my work can sometimes involve building websites. For my current employer there is a big push for all sites to meet the accessibility guidelines set out in WCAG 2.0. This is going to become standard across all government sites in the country. It is a noble […]

Just got the first versions of the Gaming and Movies pages up… will flesh these out more once the rest start coming together. Definitely liking what I see with WordPress – REALLY nice product.
I’m not a big believer in the paranormal. Ghost Whisperer annoys me, as do those chat shows with the psychic of the month talking to dead loved ones. But thanks to my wife (who loves ghost stories) I’ve found something that actually lets me forget about the details […]
Facebook and Twitter pages up and running. Seeing how this will all tie together will be interesting to say the least.
