I am a Welsh schoolboy and tech enthusiast.


A song to Nokia (really bad!)

Sorry everybody, but I couldn’t resist 🙂 P.S. The song is adapted from Livin’ On A Prayer by Bon Jovi. Also it is really very bad!

Sung to Livin’ On A Prayer by Bon Jovi

Once upon a time

Not so long ago

Nokia used to own the market

Except for RIM

But we don’t talk about them, about them

They are trying to enter a new market

Making the OS for their handsets

Not well – Not well

They need to hold on to what they’ve got

‘Cause it doesn’t make a deference if they make it or not!

They’ve still got Symbian and that’s a lot

FTW – FTW although, I’ll still give Meego a shot

It’s half way there

You’re livin’ on a prayer

Take Androids hand and you’ll make it I swear

You’re livin’ on a prayer

livin’ on a prayer

New Blog Theme!

I’m trying out a new theme for my blog called Fusion, and would like to know what everybody thinks! I so far like it but I’m not sure how it will look like on other computers… Anyway, I would be blogging for awhile (will explain soon) but when I do it will probably be about the way I got some FMA (FullMetal Alchemist) ripped to my MP4 player.

Anyway see you all soon!

BTW I’m planning on doing another vid soon, just need to get to grips with Kzam!

Kazam 0.1 released! (via andrew@thisblog)

I absolutely can’t wait for this to be stable! Methinks I’m going to have to wipe the dust of my youtube account…

Kazam 0.1 released! Hi everyone. Remember back on June 29th when I introduced 'a screencaster called Kazam' ? Well I am happy to announce that today Kazam has its first release! Kazam is fully working, all the way from recording, to exporting to popular video sharing sites. Although some features shown in the mockups (such as the quality slider and cropping capability) are not yet implemented, I am very proud of what has been and I already find it very useful! But h … Read More

Tutorial: Interactive Periodic Table Background!

Ok, this is a quick (but fun) tutorial to setup your background as a interactive Periodic table. Recently, I came across a program called Devil’s Pie which allows you to code rules for making windows behave a certain way. Seeing as I recently started my science GCSE class I thought it would be cool to have a useful Periodic table background

Back to school again!

Can be summed up in one image:

God, I hate school ICT! But I’m looking forward to Wacky Wednesday (that’s what my Science department calls the day when we have 3 Sci lessons in one day)!

Firefox 4, My Impressions (or should that be turnabout)

Ok, the other day I downloaded Firefox 4 Beta to take it for a spin. I’ve been a Chrome/ium user for a while now and wondered if Firefox could win me over. My overall answer was no. While it is much improved it still needs allot more work, I think this because:-

I’m still alive

Hey all, sorry I haven’t blogged for awhile.  I think I mentioned earlier on that I had some exams on which made it difficult to post and when I’d finally recovered I went to north Wales for awhile where there was no internet! Anyway I’m back now and am on holidays till September (Yay!), so hopefully I’ll be able to blog more often!

Introducing a screencaster called Kazam (via andrew@thisblog)

It would be great to see a easy to use Screencast tool on Linux, hope this project goes well!

Introducing a screencaster called Kazam There are many screencasting applications out there at the moment. gtkRecordMyDesktop, Istanbul (and for the hard core!) xVidCap. The trouble is, they were created WAY before screencasting became so popular, and so try to meet the demands of an audience which has changed dramatically. They built on old principles which simply don't apply anymore, and discontent with the options I saw, I decided to design (and hopefully make) my own. I started wit … Read More

Roll-Up-Piano and Linux. Epic Win!

For Christmas a few years back I received a roll-up USB Piano (I can’t remember the make). On windows it kinda sucked, I couldn’t play cords and it was a little slow responding, so It mostly stayed behind my desk. Tonight however I decided to see what it was like in Ubuntu. After a bit of googling, I found a small program which pretty much blew my mind! I run it then it allows me to use my USB Piano as a MIDI keyboard! I intend of making a YouTube vid on this (it’s a bit fiddly) and I’m defiantly going to be following this project! Now I can enjoy playing LoZ tunes outside of Music now, does anybody know a converted for N64 C-Pad to notes!
