It has been suggested by Mike Smith that we make the "Duffy" epic into an opera.. and tentative work has begun.. picture the scene.. duffy in a cubicle with the lights subdued and a general air of saddness fills the stage.. Duffy takes a deep breath and start to sing....the Duffy Aria ....br /

Who can say where the road goes, where the day goes? Only time....
Tue, Jan 29th 2013 11:41a Steve McDonagh Although I am not over in Orlando at Connect 13 this year the distance from my friends is all the more difficult with the news that one of the "Geek Bikers" , Kenneth Kjarbye from Denmark, had an fatal accident on the Annual Hog ride.
Stuck in Ireland I have only my words to reach out to Kenneth's family and my friends who are at this time in a dark place they were not expecting to be not even in their worst nightmares .. but there are no words I can think of that really do help, there ar [read] Keywords: community
Offical start of the Domino Charity Marathon Dander For Cash 2013
Wed, Jan 2nd 2013 5:28p Steve McDonagh The Dander Route
A while back I mentioned that there would be a reprise of the Domino Dander for Cash this coming year. It takes me great pleasure to announce that this year's Dander will be longer bigger and more challenging than the two that have preceeded it. As of today it is offical, a spreadsheet has been created and accomodation is being looked at and foot care product sales have gone through the roof in certain places around the UK and USA

The new CSS3 @supports() rule is really rather cool!
Fri, Nov 23rd 2012 5:42a Steve McDonagh As all devs know , browsers can in varying degrees be a right royal pain in the arse when it comes to standards compliance and when you throw in companies like Never Upgrade a PC Till It Breaks Inc. who are still running XP with IE6, planning your super duper new web site to support them can be fraught with problems.
Most of us are used to the idea of designing a UI that degrades into a DBA-UX (Different But Acceptable User Experience) to do this we have to be able to work out exactly the su [read] Keywords: blogger
Useful i5/OS tip - Displaying Locks on an IFS Object
Thu, Nov 22nd 2012 6:59a Steve McDonagh I was plagued this week by an odd problem on one of our i5 boxes. I was trying to use the CPYFRMIMPF & CPYTOIMPF to pull in data from a new Japanese division that uses nothing but Japanese characters in their data. This of course means UTF-8 / Unicode data, which can be a bit of a pain to set up in a DB2/i5 data table (particularly if someone forgets to make fields something other than CCSID 65535!) Anyway.... I could get data off the system using the CPYTOIMPF into the IFS no problem at a [read] Keywords: blogger
Domino Dander for Dosh 2013
Thu, Nov 15th 2012 11:31a Steve McDonagh Gentle readers some non-techie news!
The bold Eileen Fitzgerald and myself are planning a Dander For Dosh in May next year.
Eileen and were joined by the indefatigable Carl Tyler for 2012's walk along the coast between Bray and Wicklow in Ireland. We didn't pester the life out of you because we didn't get the giving organized in time for the actual walk. This year we will get our act in gear and start demanding money with menaces in January - You have been warned!

Principles of Design #6 - Colour Theory, The basics
Mon, Oct 15th 2012 4:32p Steve McDonagh Right I could wax long an lyrical about colours and how to use them, which I have to say probably sounds odd coming from me given that I am nearly colour blind. However I have been colour blind all my life and to me the sky is blue and grass green because that is what we are taught from when we are small.
Colour is very hard to describe to someone else without using the word "like" in fact most colour names are based around a descriptor that carries with it the meaning of the colour being [read] Keywords: blogger
