Looking for a London-based Drupal developer?

Heylo! Unfortunately, I'm not looking for work just now, but if you would like to chat, why not connect with me on LinkedIn?


To see a small selection of some of my previous work, please take a look at my portfolio and read about how I've put Greyhead.co.uk together.

Those options again...

Thanks for visiting =o) (this page was last updated on Monday 23rd February 2015)

Fireshot: grab screenshots of webpages with one click

I don't know why I didn't look for this before. Maybe I did but I didn't find anything very good. Anyhoo...

Back to Blighty; now to get a McJob... :o)

Ok, I admit it - my decision to up sticks and head to Ibiza for the summer backfired a bit after I'd been in Ibiza for only one week and realised I was bored as anything.

That's not to say Ibiza is boring - of course not - but after I'd worked my socks off during the winter on a big web development project, I realised very quickly that I missed the daily "fun" (if you can call it that) of trying to make an open source content management system like Drupal do things it doesn't think it's meant to do.

Firefox users: beware Alliance & Leicester online banking

(Kind-of off-topic in a pixel-orientated way, not to mention long-winded, rambling and - arguably - pointless ;o).

Checking my bank account today to see if a transfer I'd arranged between a couple of my A&L accounts had cleared, I was more than a little confused to spot no sign of the transfer, and a mysteriously overdrawn third account.
