Portfolio Update

I have added another website onto my portfolio – a little fun one I made just to entertain myself and a handful of other people.

If you’ve seen Family Guy, you will probably get it. Essentially, it tells you the current weather of the city you’re in, but in the style of Oli Williams and his Blaccu Weather Report. Fun, no? The concept has been done before, but I didn’t realise until halfway through development, and by that time I was far too much into it! I’m hoping to add a few extra features soon, probably some AJAX and Mootools to make it more visually appealing (although I quite like it’s current simplicity), and add the feature to scroll through days to see what the weather will be like tomorrow and so on and so forth. Of course, it’s pretty much a completely pointless website, but, I like it none the less. http://imaginaryroots.co.uk/blaccu Enjoy!

Hello!

First post! Exciting, no?

So this is my blog. Hopefully I’m going to fill it with lovely things that I find interesting, things I find whilst I’m at uni or at work, or out and about generally. Normally, these things will be quite geeky, such is my nature. Hopefully, some of you will find it interesting! We shall see. I’m currently working on this site, it’s been down for close to a year now I think, so it needed some work, and here it is. I quite like it, to be honest. Simple. I like simple. My favourite thing is probably the portfolio section, with the little slider thing, which was inspired by the new Apple website. It’s quite an easy bit of Mootools, but I think it’s quite effective. I enjoy adding the little touches, like that, to the sites I work on. I think it’s these things that turn a good site into a great site. This one, of course, is only a decent site, it will need a lot of work over the next while, but it’ll do for now. Enjoy!
