I have completely forgotten to post on here about the relaunch of the KickCode site, or my new gaming focused development brand, d'oh!
First things first, I rebuilt and relaunched the KickCode site a good few weeks ago. The new site is smarter, cleaner and clearer, and focuses on what we do best ...Comments
Ten Percent de France Jul 2
With the Tour de France in full flow for the 100th edition of the famous cycling race, and my resumed interest in fitness and in particular, cycling (indoors, at least), I’ve decided to have a little fun, and try to match my daily goals on the bike with the riders in France. Of course, I have neither...Comments
Fantastic site called “The Open Source Report Card” which takes a look at your public GitHub timeline and gives you a rundown of your skills based on project contribution, as well as when you are most active and productive. Very clever stuff, and makes for some rather ego...Comments
Interesting article by Andrew Wilkinson, the founder of MetaLab, giving an oft-overlooked and differing viewpoint to the usual “work around the clock to build your startup” rhetoric. I still think to...Comments

To get up and running quickly with Ruby 2 and Rails 4 (using...Comments

The vast majority of big game releases are multi-platform, and most of them end up having better DLC support on Xbox 360, as well as the online aspect being a lot better on Xbox Live. In fact, since moving house six months ago, I haven...Comments
Gaming an A Feb 17
Some more real life game theory application as a group of college students exposed a loophole in the scoring for their class. When told that the top score on their exam would get an A, with everyone else graded on a curve adjusted behind the highest score, they decided unanimously to boycott the exam...Comments
Game theory in the wild Feb 6
This is an interesting blog post, taking a look at an application of game theory in relation to a problem generally referred to as a “prisoner’s dilemma”, but this time it’s playing out on a television game show.
Pretty clever stuff, but one thought I had is that while the strategy is pretty cunning...Comments
Interesting to look back almost 20 years and see the late Bill Hicks brilliant response to a complaint from a priest about a screening of one of his live shows on Channel 4:
