I love a sausage

One thing about moving countries that is often overlooked is the problem of finding new versions of home comforts. Whether it’s the channel that shows the rugby (or where to find it online) or where to find the best pizza, these are the things that make your new life in your new country easier and […]

Runhello – Jumpman Game

Link: Runhello – Jumpman Game I love the idea of taking simple game ideas and exploiting new technology to make them special.

As most people know who read this blog, at least two of the three of you, I’m a software engineer working in the games industry.

Raising the dead

It seems we can learn from our mistakes! Obligatory warning: This is another DnD post. This weekend’s DnD session was the one where I first found out if my party were going to raise me from the dead or if I was going to have to roll up a new character. I am not yet […]

Smallest exoplanet yet found | Bad Astronomy

Link: Smallest exoplanet yet found | Bad Astronomy Stories like this just blow my mind. The mere fact that there are people with the technology and skills to make such delicate measurements is enough to amaze me, but add to that that what they’re measuring are planets orbiting other stars and I find myself stunned.
