    I’ve recently ran into some interesting problems when trying to access the registry on a 64bit machine via C#. Now most people should know that writing (and sometimes even reading) from certain sections of the registry results in either an exception or would return null; indicating the registry key is empty or does not...

    PSION OPO Memory Debugger

    I’ve been tinkering away and thought it would be about time I give a status update. Over the last month or two I have been porting my PSION OPO/QCode runtime to JavaScript from C#, this has required quite a lot of work and rewriting and refactoring, along with the hope to include additional new...

    Kona Zing Supreme

    Some may describe me as a bike nut, and quite rightly so, I have a collection. Predominately they have been Kona’s, and every year I wait patiently until they release their new models. Finally they have and I’ve been resisting running to the bank and draining my house fund. Which ones do I like,...
