Gone but not for long

Please bear with me, I’d hoped the transition between my old host and my new one would be smoother than this but due to unforeseen circumstances some aspects have taken longer than they ought to have done. Bendavis.me will be back on soon. In addition, my…

Bendavis.me : My personal blog/portfolio/thinking space

It’s not exactly new but I’ve finally got around to moving onto my new myfirehost.com servers and freshened it up with a new theme. I’m still working on it but I’d love to get some feedback anyway. I’m still not sure about a few things, and…

The end for wordpress coders?

I’ve recently (just now in fact) been made aware of an adobe Photoshop plugin for wordpress theme creation straight from a psd design. Looking through the Divine Project website and reading more about it seems to uncover a few pertinant points. The site itself answers my…

Down for everyone or just me?

By accident I found a very useful website for checking whether a location is online or not. If you’re testing your own site or scrutinising your internet connection; Down for everyone or just me will tell you what’s going on. This site is simple and does…

Another theme update

Yet again I’m posting up another screenshot of my work in progress theme.

Basically, with this theme I wanted something really personal, the kind of theme you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. I also wanted to make its palette slightly ubuntuesque with oranges and browns. I think it’s coming along pretty well.

Basic theme for now

Well, after a bit of faffing (pottering to you or me) I’ve settled on WordPress for my portfolio for the time being. It’s simple, gets the job done and allows me some time to polish all my templates and make them WP ready. Who knows, if…

Always better with firefox

This site will always look better in firefox. In my humble opinion it’s the most reliable web-browser – throw nearly anything at it and it will just keep ploughing on regardless. This said, I’m not very good at just sticking to firefox, my urge to fiddle…
