Updates coming to Pythonista and Editorial

This is of course amazing news. These two apps are incredible powerhouses of iOS automation and the new UI module and its associated features will take both apps into new directions for automating text using iOS devices. The developer’s extensive description of how it all works and what’s behind the release is brilliant too.

I can’t wait to get my hands on the new versions. I just hope it won’t be long.

4th Doctor: The Evil One

Evil One, The cover

Another amazing story from Big Finish. It’s always great to hear Geoffrey Beevers as the Master, and excellent to hear Michael Keating in a Doctor Who story.

This was an excellent story too. There’s real depth in this one, and the development of Leela’s character is really interesting too. In fact this whole series has been excellent so far. I’ve been very impressed, and this story isn’t any different.

Video for my track: Sympaticon

I quite enjoyed making this and getting it finished off. It isn’t perfect by any means, but it isn’t bad, and as a first attempt (almost first) I’m quite pleased with it.

Of course, it makes me think of other stuff I’d like to do with video, so expect more at some point.

Catching up with Triggerfox

I’ve been after an app like this for a long time. Something that pulls contacts together from all over your social media connections like LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and brings everything together in a single address book, but that also gives you the ability to set reminders and actions and more. So I was delighted to see Triggerfox arrive on the app store, and be free too.

I’m just getting to grips with it, but already I can see that it’s going to help me be a bit more organised than I am now, and hopefully stay in touch with people a little better. Who knows. Time will tell I suppose, but it’s a step in the right direction anyway.

Messing around with stuff and posting it in vine

BBC Outcasts (2010)

I’d forgotten this little known BBC science fiction series. I say series, it only lasted for one season and then the BBC decided (in their infinite wisdom) to cancel it. I’ve no idea why as it was actually very good, or at least I thought it was anyway. The basic premise is that a group (about 7000 to be precise) humans end up on this life supporting world and are trying to make a life for themselves, and of course each episode is about their struggles.

There were only eight episodes made, which was a real shame as it was very good indeed. It deserved another series. It deserved to get finished, but as usual the BBC can’t be bothered to follow through on any science fiction series. They did the same to Survivors (which was really good), it seems that they just can’t do science fiction at all, or rather, they can make it, but they don’t understand that it takes people a little while to get into these kinds of shows and they need to stay the distance and not give up almost immediately.

So I’m watching it again and remembering how good it was and what a let down it was when it ended, or rather it didn’t end. It just stopped. I’m sure that the BBC will do it again at some point. I just wish they wouldn’t, especially when it’s a good story and worth watching.

Guess where I went again?

 

Season 1: Space 1999

So I’ve watched the whole of season 1 of Space 1999. It was good, I enjoyed it. It is slow, philosophical, and sometimes very strange, but I still enjoy it. The question is, what do I do next?

The most likely outcome is that I’ll buy season 2 on iTunes as it’s very cheap. There are another 24 episodes and then that’s it. Nothing more, but I’d like to see them and follow the whole thing through.

littleBits announce an Arduino module

Added to the fact that they also announced this not so long ago, and this littleBits thing is going to start to get expensive soon. Although, probably, that ship has sailed already.

4th Doctor: The Crooked Man

IMG_1430

Quite a different story for the 4th Doctor. An interesting story really. I think I might need to listen to it at least one more time before I really decide what I think of it.
