My wallpaper collection

With no inspiration to write a rant, here’s a quick and dirty post to fill in the big gap on my WordPress post calendar.

I have a Design RSS feed which occasionally has something useful in there that doesn’t relate to massaging a rockstar/ninja/wizard (or any other adjective to describe these narcessitic fuckers) designers, like some nice images for background wallpapers.

This is wgere my OCD kicks in, but I like a consistent look across my desktop machine at home, my work Mac Book Pro and my work’s Mac Book Pro, so I have a folder on my OneDrive that has 300+ images that rotate every 20 minutes or so across the board.

So rather than doing the blindingly obvious and sharing that folder, I’ve copied them to My Google Photos and shared that as well. Why make life easy huh?

So click here to see my appalling taste and nerdiness in background wallpapers.

WordPress plugin to replicate Pluralsight’s search

The development team are being reskilled (NOT retrained) to use technologies for mobile apps like AngularJS and MVC5 and as we’re MSDN members, we get Pluralsight free 🙂

So we all get our subscriptions through and the first thing I notice is the search.

live-search-pluralsight

That’s nice, so my mind is already writing the code in my head, but I’m a lazy shit so can I rip it? Nope, it’s in ReactJS.

Bollocks.

Ok, let’s break down each step and write it in jQuery. For WordPress. As a plugin. Piece of piss.

Ta dah!
Ta dah! If I could get my own domain URL right. Duh.

This is provided as is. It’s very basic, no responsiveness, no options and written and tested in Chrome. Sure it can be improved greatly, but this was just me messing around more than creating a finished project.

Download it here, add it to your site and activate.

After a little bit of tidying, I’ve added it to GitHub along with other shite I’ve done.

If you want to reconfigure it, you’ll have to edit the files and colours and stuff.

Try the search box on the left hand side on this blog and you’ll see it in action.

HTC Desire Photoshop files

Well here’s something I can write about, that people actually might find useful.

Here are two photoshop files of the HTC Desire. One is fullsize with a blank 800×480 area, and the other is half the size, so 400×240.
