Welcome!

Please bear with me while I recreate important pages such as my console modifications and add them to this new website.

Wednesday 25th October, 2017 - Waiting for parts!

I have received the processors and most of the support components I require for my single board computer. Soon I will place an order with an electronics supplier for the other parts I require for the SBC (such as RAM / flash memory) and my redesigned weather station. Weather station you say? Yep, I had an outdoor weather station running since February 2017 transmitting data to be logged on my home automation controller, and displayed on a terminal. I decommissioned it roughly a month ago due to deficiencies in the design and water ingress. I will be building a new version soon. Home automation? Coming to a video series soon, with pages!

Saturday 30th September, 2017 - Recovering old pages

I have started to recover some of the useful pages from my old website - for example the Megadrive console modifications. Unfortunately I am missing some images and files; please bear with me while I hunt them down. For the moment images are missing.

Friday 29th September, 2017 - New website launched

Welcome to the new look of my personal website. Unfortunately I had to dump the old website and replace it with this new one powered by the open source DokuWiki project. The old website ran on a custom CMS I designed and required an old version of sqlite to function, along with an outdated database access library. The work required to update it to run on a modern version of PHP with UTF-8 support proved to be not worth the effort; moving to dokuwiki will allow me to keep the site up-to-date with more information about my projects.
