Sites I Made
Websites in this section are ones I wrote the software for myself. Source code for them can be found in the Software section.
My flight tracking display uses a Raspberry Pi ADS-B receiver and custom display software to show planes in the vicinity of the local airport.
"Can I Call It...?"
is a utility that helps you name your new project, by finding any existing software packages that already have that name.
is the website front-end to our pet gecko's vivarium automation and monitoring system.
Other Sites I Run
Websites in this section are ones I set up and/or run for other people.
Other silly things that I've done on the web.
Fred the Plant
, a doodle that a friend and I drew in our school days that we briefly resurrected on the Web.
is a Tumblr where I coped with my son's Pokemon obsession by posting weird "reviews" of the bizarre critters. Occasionally sweary, may be NSFW depending on your W.
The Dorset Card Game
was a brief attempt at making a trading card game based on the undeniably best county in the world.
Past & Discontinued Things
was a multi-column Twitter and Facebook client. It offers advert-free feeds, completely customisable columns, multiple account support, and more.
was a "1-bit" activity tracker that allows you to make "promises" and keep track of how many days in a row you kept them. It ran for a couple of years, but only ever had around a dozen users.
was a website that tracked UK Members of Parliament, both their activities at Westminster and on social media. It was developed with an old school friend, but it didn't take off and we released the source code to the public.
A Thousand Words
was an attempt at a fiction-writing community where contributors would post a photo and encourage others to use it as an idea for short stories. I posted one story to get it started but it never saw any user-submitted content.
, a local dog walking service that used to operate in the Bournemouth and Poole area.
, an experiment in crowd-sourced policy-making and my first foray into online community-building.
My blog has gone through a bunch of design changes in its 15+ year history. The majority are now (thankfully!) lost to history, though some have been collected from the Internet Archive and for self-indulgent reasons are shown here
