    I have been messing around with buddypress recently and came up with this bit of code that you can insert into your header.php. Basically what it will do is create alerts/counter for logged in users that will display if you have any new notifications/friend requests or messages. It is based upon an if statement that checks if the count is greater…[Read more]

    Here is something I have been working on!
    • Hey that is pretty good! Did you do this using a tablet?

    • Yes I use a wacom cintiq 27qhd, it cost me £1500+ and has more or less bankrupted me just about but it is so good as it allows me to draw so much detail because of how big it is plus it beats the Intuos tablets because you actually drawing on the screen!

    • Awesome! Do you need a super fast computer though to run the Cintiq on? I can imagine that my computer would lag like crazy if I plugged in something like that!

    • No not at all… I have a really rubbish Lenovo computer (cannot even play games that are 10 years old on it) and the cinitq doesn’t lag… the only time it does lag is if the whole computer is lagging which I often get if I am working on something big on photoshop (ie dpi 300 and a3 size)… also because my computer is cpu based and there are…[Read more]

    Here in the Uk the government are cracking down on working tax credits.. the Tories excuse for this is because they are wanting to stop people being reliant on benefits.. so they say but the real truth I believe is that the government wants to stifle small businesses and self employed people as much as they can.
    The government aren’t doing…[Read more]

    • George Osbourne when he was in the Bullingdon Club would burn money in front of homeless people.. he is an utter psychopath and should not be in power. The Tories are just trying to beat down the poorest people in the uk so to then exploit them through schemes for example through forcing people out of work (self employed people) to work for free…[Read more]

    Site5 hosting has gone down hill. I have been hosting one of my main websites on site5 for a few years now but in these last couple months site 5 has really dived in quality and service. Not only has my site been hacked and dodgy scripts dumped inside my websites folders the speed is so slow now and has been getting slower and slower fr quite…[Read more]

    • I used to host on site 5 and I thought it was really slow especially for the price plus emails from their servers got blacklisted so I scrapped them. I use godaddy hosting now and I have a really heavy plugin packed wordpress site and it copes with it pretty well! Also you can use as many domains as you like so you are not limited to just 1 site…[Read more]

    • Site 5 isn’t the only rubbish host around I’m actually having problem with my webhosting at the moment too.. all I can say is avoid Tech hosts as they are totally naff! For one you cannot use ftp at all most of the time because you just get blocked with “421 Too many connections (8) from this IP” and if that wasn’t enough they put these stupid low…[Read more]

    This is one of the best paintings I have done so far in photoshop.

    Heres my first attempt of a landscape painting using my cintiq 27qhd. Tell me what you think!
    • It is obviously one of those paintings that looks better the further away you are from it.. LOL

    It really is hit and miss when it comes to themes from themeforest. Recently I bought a theme called Nrgnetwork created by themeton and all I can say is that it was a complete waste of money. This theme is just not fit for purpose for example it boasts a frontend posting feature that is extremely fragmented and impossible for users to use…[Read more]

    • I agree there are a lot of really bad themes on themeforest but there are also lots of really good themes (usually the best sellers)… which are maintained and updated quite a lot. Id rather themeforest/codecanyon was around than it not being because when you buy a theme or plugin at least the stuff is cheap there and gets updates for security…[Read more]

    Here is a quick doodle I have just done.. on facial anatomy. When you you know how to construct your own face using just a sphere.. your only bound to you imagination!

    After watching Piers Morgan interviewing Donald Trump last night I am convinced now that trump is the right person to be president for the United States… because when Piers Morgan asked him whether Britain should remain in the Eu or leave Donald Trump said that he thinks that yes Britain should leave especially after the recent incidents in the…[Read more]

    • I watched that as well.. I really don’t know why people are always having a go at Donald Trump because he seems honest enough and at least with him.. what you see is what you get! He is funding his own campaign and isn’t being influenced like Hilary flaming Clinton by massive cooperation’s through lobby money.

    According to reports BMW are set to throw their hat into the self driving car ring! This is great news as it means someone is actually going to make a decent self driving car and we all will not have to go buy google nerd buggy.
    In an interview with reaturs a bmw executive has explained why…

    ‘Our task is to preserve our business model without…[Read more]

    • I’m glad about this. Google should just stop being greedy and stick to what it is.. a search engine and leave making cars to the professionals. Anyway I know that I would and can imagine everyone else would much rather buy a proper car like bmw make rather than just some dumb google car.

    I am currently making loads of design for a t shirt brand that I am setting up. Hopefully once I have enough design done I will be sending them off to be made into actual t shirts. So far I have done around 6 designs… im still trying to find my own unique style as I want all my t shirt designs to be super orginal and something that has not…

    I logged into outlook today to be greeted with this stupid message telling me that I have until 5 days to verify my account using my mobile phone else I will be locked out of my account. The whole reason I started using outlook was because google with gmail started to lock me out of my account until I am able to verify my account with a…

    • I hate it when that happens… thats why I ended up hosting my own email on my own domain instead… but you have to be careful that you make sure your hosting is super secure as you do not want to get hacked because if you do then the hacker will have access to all your emails.

    • Do not worry this happened to me once. All you have to do is slect cannot log into my account and then instead of using a mobile phone for security checks get another email somewhere else and use that for your security check instead and outlook should let you change it and then all you do is verify it and you should get locked out of your…[Read more]
