site all about then? Good question - and as soon as I can put my finger
it you'll be the first to know!
site started as a cursory attempt at broadening my knowledge of web
hosting, running a server, networking etc. It soon became apparent
that without any real content to publish the motivation would soon wane
so I decided to document our ongoing
house renovation (we've moved on now but kept the pages up
posterity, and an eternal warning for when you buy a house thinking it
only needs a lick of paint!). Things developed
from there to include subjects such as boiler
info and resources about the Hyundai
Coupe and, more recently (and seemingly most-importantly
judging by the access logs!),
Internet-Enabled Cat Feeder! The
interest in the feeder took
me by surprise when it started receiving thousands of visitors a day -
talk of it spread throughout a whole host of 'tech'
sites, across the blogosphere and even tweeted about on Twitter. As if
things hadn't gone far enough, coming
second in Mac|Life
magazine's Top Ten Wonders of the Home Automation World
really took the (cat) biscuit...
all-in-all, there's no real common thread so it's probably
just to give you an overview of what lurks in my forgotten corner of
website needs a homepage and this is it...
Internet-Enabled Cat Feeder... and the world's first IPv6-enabled one
at that! Amazingly, the feeder hit the news and
almost brought my site down with over 3,000 visitors per day!
Later on, it was ranked #2 in Mac|Life magazine's Top Ten Wonders of the Home Automation World!
|Despite how pervasive digital cameras have become, and the 'photograph-absolutely-everything' manner in which we use them, we seem to be merely building collections of unsorted images that rarely see the light of day. This section is my attempt to address this by at least publishing some 'highlights' and sharing these with others. Of course, I've started this more than 10 years since getting my first digital camera so it could take a while for me to go back through the archives... the published highlights might therefore all seem rather recent!
can see from the logs that the
site gets quite a few hits I don't know who from (and why!) so
it's great to
know who is visiting and to hear any comments you might have! Don't be
shy - tell me what you think!
questions, suggestions etc? You can contact me directly via
just a homepage, I created a housepage to chart the progress (or otherwise!) of our house renovation project. It
started in 2002 when we moved in, and I had every intention of
stopping at some point however as my Dad always kept telling me; it's
a never-ending task and will never actually be 'finished'! He was so
right... [Edit Aug 2010: Actually, we did eventually 'finish' and have now moved on but have kept the old pages up lest we forget what we went through! ;-)]
the diverter/diaphragm in your Worcester Bosch
24CDi combi boiler (or similar) is on the blink then this page is
possibly for you -
judging by the visitor count and number of e-mails I receive it seems
there are quite a
few of you! Whilst never intended as a 'HowTo' guide it seems the
photos of the various stages gives some people the confidence to give
it a go themselves... and others to not go near it so either way it
seems to be useful!
|IPv6 - The
Internet Protocol. As the pool of remaining IPv4 addresses diminishes
something has to come in to fill the gap... For better of for worse it
looks like IPv6 is the only viable candidate to choose from. This part
of the site details my experiences of it, or at least how I have
brought it into use in my otherwise IPv4-only corner of the Internet.
F2 Evo, including online electrical and mechanical service
manuals for all generations of the Hyundai Coupe. I have also written various guides and walkthroughs on subjects such as brake overhauls, engine removal and cam swaps.
