Now based in Yeovil, Somerset for web design. My office is now based in Yeovil, Somerset. I still have clients all over the country so my work as a web designer is certainly not restricted to Somerset, but Yeovil is where I now work from. Yeovil is a great town to live in (as is […]

Charity Web Design

As a web designer, it's not often that I get the opportunity to make a difference to people's lives. My fiancee is an Occupational Therapist and this is one thing that I envy greatly about her work. Consequently, I always embrace the opportunity to work with charities and non-profit organisations.

Rustic Wooden Sign

Recently, I've been making a few decorative pieces for my wedding at the end of the month. Monday's job was to make a rustic welcome sign to hang on an old wooden ladder we picked up at a market, so I took the offcuts from my desk project last month and got to work...

Building a Fitted Desk

When I'm not at my desk, one of my hobbies is building and restoring furniture so I thought I'd share my work from the past few days. As you may have guessed from the title, I spent the weekend building a fitted desk around the base of an old dresser. After two long days, here's the result...

Why the New Website?

After sticking with my old website for many years, I decided it was time for a completely new look.

Freecycle on Steroids

For those of you who don't know about Freecycle, it is a network of groups across the world who give away their unwanted belongings for free, rather than selling or binning them. I think the principle of Freecycle is a great idea; one man's junk is another man's treasure and I hate seeing anything go to waste...

PHP Array Flip

Over the past few months I've been working a lot with PHP and some of my work has been heavily reliant on searching for values in long arrays. PHP has a nice function for doing just this (in_array) and naturally I assumed this would be the best way of doing it. However, after finding the program quite sluggish, I set out to improve matters and the following is just a very simple trick which I found made quite a difference...
