Travis - Some vague memories

Wednesday, February 7th, 2011

This post might be slightly off topic, but I remembered about a band called Travis. Were around a lot a few years ago. Girls liked the singer. I had a reminder recently about a CD I bought called called 12 Memories. Great I thought, I’ll rip it onto my MP3 player so I can listen […]

Not around this week

Tuesday, December 12th, 2010

Often you have an old site built with .htm pages that just can’t use PHP code on it because the server wont run PHP on a static HTML page. I’ve struggled with this over and over - do I use Iframes, do I use JavaScript (Can do both but not great for search engines).
