I recently came across an issue where I wanted to output the results of a (rather large) SQL query to a CSV file. Historically, I have been copying the DB from a backup to my local machine, but as it has grown larger, it has become increasingly difficult to do (as a result of the […]Continue Reading...

Ever since using a MAC (at work), I have really liked the feature to take screenshots of sections of the screen using a certain key combination (CMD + Shift + 4 if my memory served me correctly – I never need to think about it any more). I’ve known about various tools which have allowed […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
This is mainly a note for myself, but there’s no reason why it won’t be useful for someone else too. Recently, I have been trying to set up a server under VirtualBox to start writing / maintaining some WebGUI code. WebGUI as a platform seems to be fairly under-used. Certainly, searches for information as a […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

With the reader plugged into a USB 2.0 port, the files copy without issue. This […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I was introduced to Bon Iver’s self-titled album upon its release, and along with the music remember being particularly blown away by the album art – especially when I discovered how intricate the art actually was – created by Gregory Euclide and subsequently photographed. The attention to detail is staggering. Every time I browse through his […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Last year in May I was entered into a competition by Aputure following a photo (see below) I posted into their group on Flickr. Having won that initial competition, I eventually received a single TXII-S flash trigger through the post (mid-February). On its own though, the trigger is pretty-much useless (it does feature a cable shutter-release […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Everlasting Joy from St Thomas Crookes on Vimeo. Towards the end of last year, I made up part of a team who shot the music video for a song written by Nick & Claire Law (St Thomas Crookes) and Chris Sayburn (St George’s Leeds). Everlasting Joy is declaration of the Lord’s promises in the midst […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Each year my wife and I make a photobook for the previous year. We started doing this around four years ago. For the first album, we used Photobox, but I have found their online tool a little clunky to use. A friend of ours introduced us to Blurb – a company which provides an offline […]Continue Reading...
