Articles about websites

Working with the web everyday as a job and hobby often leads me to find useful websites. Below is a list of websites which I think are useful to everyone.

I have a never ending quest to find good free stuff. Finding free stuff is easy - its the GOOD bit that stumps me…

Often I dont even mind paying for something if its quality, but obviously free is better!

Quality Icons are something I am always on the lookout for and I have been a member of Icon Buffet for a long time now — I'm a big fan of the free deliveries — and, although I've purchased a few packs (Oslo, Oslo Buzz and Soho), they are very expensive for a "bedroom programmer" such as myself.

The site has recently had a few updates…

  • Tagadelic - A Tag Cloud which shows all the tags used on this site but sized and weighted to show how often they are used. More cool than practicle :-)
  • Design - The headers have had a slight design change - I quite like the gradient/line/drop-shaddo look they have now
  • Photo's and projects added... You can see more and more content coming onto the site!

A project I've been working on for months, recently accelerated with the assistance of two newly employed colleagues (who are picking up this Drupal thing VERY quickly!) have meant that has finally moved from an old Solaris and Oracle setup with no server management or backup facility to a nice shiny new one with a company called Rackspace.

Welcome to TMJ. This site contains the work and thoughts of its owner, Nicholas Thompson. This is version 3 of Thingy Ma Jig. It started out being a table-based hand written site with very basic features. I then started to write version 2 with more features which I learned since starting version 1. Since then I have been introduced to Drupal which is, in my opinion, the best content management system available (or at least for free).

This is a drupal powered site which currently contains a few Dark Basic Pro programs and games I've written (I hope to upload MANY more), a blog which I have just started and some RSS feeds from some sites (down the right).
