Minecraft has been driving me a bit mad in the last few days. The Minecraft server I created stopped working and, even after I got it working again, it refused to work with my son’s newly-updated version of Minecraft. You have to understand what a huge problem this …

How to – Run your own Minecraft server on a mobile

Last night my son wanted to play Minecraft with his mates. It’s really easy if you’re in the same house or on the same WiFi access point. During New Years Eve he spent an hour with his mates, iPads a-plenty, on the sofa creating new worlds together. They …

Running a website from your phone

I’ve got an Android handset that is gathering dust and, despite the fact that the camera is cracked and the screen only works when it feels like it, I wanted to make some use of it. So, after a little bit of fiddling, I’ve turned it into a …

A big, warm, fuzzy, thank-you from me.

It’s at times like this that I feel humble. Y’see, it’s you lot that keep us here. It’s you guys that keep us posting this stuff. Reviews, covering product launches and keeping up to date with all the latest information, it’s not easy and it’s quite time-consuming too. …

We’re a little slow today…

Today we noticed some serious speed issues and drop-outs on the site. It is, as with a number of connectivity issues nowadays, due to a fibre-optic cable being cut. Usually fibre failures are due to thieves assuming that it’s copper cable and want it for the ever increasing …

On the move again..

Over the last couple of days we’ve had a number of issues. It’s a fallout from the big design and back-end website management change we did recently. Since everything went live we’ve seen memory usage on our main server rise considerably, and no amount of caching seemed to …
