Bob's Tech Site: Static version preview Show more
The thing that seems to be taking the longest for my HTML5-only replacement for Bob's Tech Site are the image galleries I'm using to direct people to content.
The blog page needs another 33 thumbnail images to be cropped and created with new captions. The homepage just has a placeholder for now because it'll be re-using the same thumbnail images once I've picked out the articles I want to showcase.
The beacons are lit! Gargor calls for aid!
Wiltshire is mercifully finally getting some rain.
Hopefully this means what's left of the Novichok gets washed away and people near Salisbury Plain can rest a bit easier about wildfires and unexploded artillery shells mixing

And proof in case it were needed 😎
I decided against picking up a giant beige CRT monitor because a) they're a pain to move, b) they're hard to fix when they break & c) my nostalgia for them isn't quite enough to override a & b.
Around 2005 we collectively started using more practical LCD monitors, but many family PCs foolishly stuck with the 4:3 aspect ratio. They were simpler times...
...and this is the other totally unrelated retrogaming desktop I have. But I'll talk about that particular project at a later date 😉
This is the ye olde beige keyboard and mouse I bought for the retrogaming rig BTW.
It also came with a pair of crappy PC speakers that died pretty much immediately, so will probably be using my modern black Logitech 2.1 speakers + subwoofer.
But what about the other 14 parts? Are they important?! 😂

I seem to have some anthropomorphised animals in my living room.
