I’m a huge fan of the Bose QC35 II Noise cancelling headphones. I use them most days, especially whilst working. The sound quality is amazing and the noise cancellation is great if in busy environments or for hearing the detail in something.
Today I discovered an issue with noise related to opening Adobe Premiere Pro. If you’ve experienced this as well, perhaps I have the solution for you.
At some point in your life you’re probably going to want to take a screenshot on your Mac. When it comes to this, you don’t always want people to see everything on your screen, you just want them to see a bit. Apple stepped up to the plate with this built-in screen capture tool.
When I’m working on a site, be it WordPress or any other type, it’s really useful to know what template is generating the current page. This is not so easy when you have potentially hundreds of small files compiling an individual page on content.
Are you having trouble generating thumbnails for your PDF files in the WordPress media library? I found this great plugin that allows you to regenerate them all at once or also do them individually directly in the list view of the media library.
I’m working on a client site and I wanted a nice tinted version of their primary colour for links when hovered over. I just wanted to take the primary colour and darken it and thankfully someone out there has provided a tool just for that (actually some other cool tools as well).
Being in several active bands, and also being self-employed, requires a moderate amount of organisation. The easiest way for me to do that is to keep several calendars, one for each project, and then sync them all together on my phone and on my Mac.

I recently got round to reading this book. I’d seen the film and several friends had recommended it to me but as I’m a slow reader it takes me a while to get round to it. I’m glad I did though, I was quite surprised by it. Continue reading “Ready Player One”
I love a gadget, especially a new phone. Recently I bought the new iPhone XS and it’s an amazing piece of tech. One thing that does bother me which almost all new phones (all manufacturers) is how thin they’ve become. Personally I’d rather they had a little more depth to them, similar to the original iPhone, so that they felt a little more sturdy and this would also give space to fit a larger battery and get rid of that awful raised lens area. Before phones got this slim I always felt happy without a case but that’s no longer the way, you really must buy a case for a phone now to protect it.

I write this post sitting in an apartment overlooking the marina on the last day of my holiday in St Lucia. It’s been an amazing experience here as I’ve never previously been anywhere like it. The sun, the sea, the rainforest, it’s all incredible and I’d recommend it to everyone, such a beautiful place.
Now, being a tech nerd, I was a little concerned when I discovered that my UK carrier wanted to charge me around £5/MB for data while I was out here! That would have been a pretty painful bill to return home to, or it would mean I was disconnected from the world for 10 days, also not an option…enter GigSky.
