So I recently brought a Razer Cynosa Lite, a low-ish end computer keyboard, as a bit of a stopgap to fill the void before I find the time to hand wire a nice QMK-compatible.. Razer keyboards come with a bit of software called Synapse 3 – on plugging the keyboard in, the software installs. Everything… Continue reading Synapse 3 doesn’t open on Windows 10
Just a quick one – I’ve updated my website!
Okay, I know we’re not upgrading Apache, but y’know what I mean – let’s upgrade a Debian web server using PHP 7.3 to PHP 7.4! I’ll also cover some pointers on if that web server is running WordPress.
I just upgraded the version of PHP on the server running this blog, and popped over to /wp-admin/site-health.php to check for any errors. There were a few, the main one which caught my eye being The REST API encountered an error.
Unsurprisingly, remembering to blog about stuff is pretty low on my list of things to do. So, I’m setting myself a bit of a challenge. A weekly update post, no word limits or anything, just a half hour to vent the week into the void.

Recently I’ve moved a couple of my ongoing projects over to PHP 8, and was caught out slightly by some unexpected behaviour. Laragon makes it pretty easy to add a new PHP/Apache… Continue reading Using PHP 8 with Laragon
Sleep is weird isn’t it? Leaving aside all the deep scientific questions surrounding it, sleep is just a bit weird. Have you ever had a night where you don’t dream? Where you close your eyes and open them again, and somehow six hours have passed? I used to get them all the time growing up,… Continue reading This blog post isn’t about sleep
I’ve actually got a draft post which I started yesterday about Technical SEO to finish, but something caught my interest today – Google announced the roll out of their December 2020 Core Update. The December 2020 Core Update is now rolling out live. As is typical with these updates, it will typically take about one… Continue reading Panic! At The December 2020 Core Update
November 2020 was a weird month for me (2020 was just weird anyway..) – I left my job of four years to move back home to Cornwall. The idea of IT and development contracting has always appealed to me, there’s a lot of money to be made and flexibility to be had, and being able… Continue reading Oh God, I’ve started my own company
