It’s pretty obvious to me that if you are online and in the workforce that you naturally have a LinkedIn profile. It’s also pretty obvious to me that you would have a Twitter account. But should you link them up? I’d give that some serious thought before leaping into it.Here’s why. Continue reading →
I was lucky enough to score a Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 from Santa this year and I finally found enough time to sit down and go through the first setup stages and here are my first impressions as a complete novice with Lego NXT and programmable robotics. Continue reading →
I recently caught a tweet about the simplest phone in the world, John’s phone, and I knew I had to have one. I don’t know what appealed to me in hindsight, maybe as a gadget guru it was the anti-hero of all devices, maybe it was the retro chic styling, the refined look of a Motorola mid 90′s pager, whatever I must haz one.

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now. I will be posting on this blog once a day / once a week for all of 2011.
I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.
If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

I have now developed my first Flash game beyond what the standard offer is from the text book, into a game with 3 stages of progressive memory match games – and it works!
It took some serious ‘nutting out’ but once I really understood what was going on I found I could do what I had originally planned and create 3 games with a click through progression into one. This is going to hold me in excellent stead now to develop the narrative and then integrate my graphics.
Anyway, now you can click to play and follow through the 3 different puzzles below in this simple matching/memory puzzle game. None of the graphics are mine and the title pages and click through pages are just place holders while I work through the code.
