As a big fan of open source software I was quite excited when Brackets, a code editor, founded by Adobe, was initially released in November 2014. Released for Mac, Windows and Linux and is guided by a community of fans, that are willing to improve and build upon it. Since it’s release I have tested many extensions but here are some of my favourites, for a bonus I’ll throw in the ones that will make Brackets more visually appealing.
On Saturday 7th June I along with my daughter and many others will be participating in the Kiltwalk to raise money for Alfie’s Trust, which was set up to fund research into a rare incurable disease called Lymphangiomatosis. The disease causes benign tumours to grow anywhere in the body which cannot be removed or shrunk using chemotherapy.
Over the years smartphones are more sophisticated and so too are the apps that you can purchase for them. Having had a pretty tough time lately, sleep was one of the things that was affected in a big way. Having barely slept in January and struggling to get back into a pattern of having several hours sleep in one go, waking up groggy and disinterested in life as a result. In the beginning of March I decided to buy an iPhone app to monitor my sleep (or lack of), something that I would say I was quite pessimistic about to start with but would the app have any effect?
If you are like me and you are fed up of receiving those annoying nuisance text messages to claim for the accident you have never had, PPI, bank refunds then instead of ignoring them, block them easily with this easy to follow picture tutorial and banish the bad boys for good.
I had plans that my 100th post would be special so I am dedicating it to the life of my fiance Shaun, of 16 years, who was suddenly taken away from me on the 1st January at the age of 35. Here is our story of love, life and grief.
It is with the deepest sadness my Fiance and soulmate for the past 16 years was suddenly taken away from me on New Years Day at the tender age of 35. Shaun was a dedicated father and hard working man with a heart of gold. We spent the last 2 weeks together as a family, having fun and doing what families should do. Time is precious!
When a new operating system is released you question yourself. Do I really need an upgrade? How easy is it? Do I dive in or wait for the mass participation to die down? Do I research blogs to find the good, bad and ugly, will it put me off? I guess the answer is all of them. Here is my experience with my recent Yosemite upgrade on my 2-year-old Mac.
Having checked back at some of my popular PHP and jQuery posts I decided to create WOW playground which unites all of my previous checkboxes and radio button form tutorials into one handy script. I have updated to newer, modern technologies like HTML5, CSS3 and PDO, to handle the database. jQuery and jQuery UI have been updated to the latest versions with a few new features and the odd tweak here and there.
As bizarre as this title sounds I haven’t taken up knitting as a hobby. Recently I was called by my friend whose Windows Vista computer had shut down on her and refused to restart. Being slightly curious I paid her a visit to be greeted with a computer that had gone into hyper hibernation mode. A simple long press of the power button turned it off and boy what was I greeted with when I restarted it.
