Busy bee

Erk! Didn’t realise how long it has been since I last updated. I’ve had my nose deep down in various web projects for clients, as well as a pitch for a ‘management training simulator game’. I’ve always had a soft spot for ‘Sim’ style games, and have spent many hours of play on whichever game I was addicted to at the time. This one has a more serious note however, as its primarily designed for training purposes and is for use in an academic environment (for a specific client who thinks the best way to educate is to encourage experimentation).

I’m hoping to take it a bit easier over Christmas though – since I’m finding one of the many problems in being your own boss is knowing when to stop. There’s always one more task to be done, one more client to talk to. Anyway, shouldn’t be so long till the next update anyway, although it’ll probably end up being after the big day.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Not that anyone will notice I suppose, but I’ve just cleaned up some of the front page code to shave 50% off the loading time. It seems like no matter how long I spend learning new Web coding tricks, there’s always more, and they’re all useful! So, yet more ticks in the accessibility column. 😀
