Time for another review… this time, the Kindle from Amazon. The management summary for this review would probably read something like this… “If you’ve not got one, get one and enjoy.”. Nice and compact… just like the Kindle. (more…)

Sony’s PSN Hacked

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Hi all, just in case you’re an infrequent player of your Sony console and you’ve got a Playstation Network account you might like to read this.

ACFW Update

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Quick update on ACFW Version 1.0… I’ve not stopped development, but unfortunately it does take a back seat when I’m busy and I’ve been really busy lately.

All that’s left to do is actually create the tables and forms that are going to be used to manage the configuration. I can’t remember what I’ve posted about features, but it includes it’s own RSS feed reader that looks at the ACFW RSS feed produce by my blog, so you’ll get the latest news about ACFW right there in your WordPress admin pages, along with links to my wiki etc. for easy access to the latest documentation.
