dhConverter 1.0 (Android)

After a week of faffing around, I am now proud to announce my first ever Android Application!

It's called dhConverter, dh for me (Dale Hay) and Converter because that's what it does, it converts. What does it convert you ask? Well it converts various different types of temperatures from Celsius to Fahrenheit or maybe even Rankine or Kelvin. Also you can convert various methods of Weight, Length, Area, Capacity and Volume.

At the moment the application isn't available on the Android Market due to the fact that it costs $25 to put it on there. (I know, I thought it... [read more]

Greenwich Fire 28th May 2012

In the early hours of Monday 28th May 2012, around 3.30am, residents in South-East London were woken up to what has been described as an air-raid siren. (I do feel sorry for any elderly person that gets woken up by that - I'd personally shit my pants and run for cover with a tin hat and a gun*)

As far as reports are going - considering BBC News haven't even mentioned a single bit about it (let down!!) - there's supposedly a fire in the Greenwich area, with about 70 firefighters currently tackling it. Plenty of pictures and videos have been... [read more]

dhConverter (Android)

Well I finally got around to learning how to make applications for Android phones after downloading a million and one different programs and development kits from here, there and everywhere and spending countless hours reading tutorials and shouting at my screen when things weren't working correctly. Definitely not something I'd recommend to do if you suffer from high blood pressure.

Anyways, once I'd got the slight jist of the programming language (which for Android is Java (yuk!)), I was thinking what on earth to actually make. Now obviously anything you can think of has pretty much been created,... [read more]

GooGar HTML5

Earlier on I noticed Google had a "Story fo Send" link underneath their search bar. I clicked it and watched the presentation all the way through about how your email is sent. It was quite entertaining - obviously I know how emails are sent and received, but how the presentation was set out was great. Though it got me thinking, "what on Earth have they used to make it, is it Flash or HTML5?" and a quick look in the source code proved it was HTML5 (and the workings of a fair bit of JavaScript...

Free Image Hosting Tip

I'm suprised I've not seen people doing this method of free image hosting yet with their websites and while it's been niggling at the back of my head, I thought I might aswell post about it.

Now normally if you have your own hosting account on a server somewhere in the world you will know that you're on a limit as to how much bandwidth you use (even these "unlimited bandwidth" ones ~ nothing's unlimited *fact*). Well if your website is mainly text based then you'll notice that depending on how many visitors you get, you don't really use... [read more]
