Welcome to my sandpit where I try out ideas, projects, services, tools, etc.
Please do keep in mind that as this is a sandpit some things, especially projects in beta, may not be as fully formed as a real life (read: paid for) project. I might cut a few corners to try out a thing, maybe I don’t quite write the most handsome of code as I could, probably tests will come later rather than being upfront TDD style. If something’s not gonna work, we want it to not gonna work fast so we can move on to the next thing!
Nothing fully released to the public at the moment. I need to get a move on!
You can use things in the beta stage. You might even be able to use all the features! You’ll probably bump into a false wall held up with scaffolding somewhere though.
Yogs DB - Yogs DB is a site that lets you browse the back-archives of a YouTube network known as The Yogscast. Generally it’s aimed to be an easy search engine that works across their network as opposed to either a specific channel or YouTube as a whole. The future idea is that it’ll then be able to alert […]
Furiously tapping away in sublime to get to the beta stage. Chances are sites here have a signup form on ’em where you can sign up to be informed when they hit beta!
Zoop - Zoop is a site that is reminiscent but obviously legally totally different to what Vine.co used to be. The brief overview is that it’s a short video sharing service with videos being anywhere from 3 to 12 seconds long.
Projects that are in the planning stage. Please, feel free to try and guess what they’re going to be. They may never appear. Projects worked on in order of hype,interesting desc (But displayed here in order of alphabetical)
Feedbot - Nothing to do with food. It’s about RSS feeds Imghex - Something to do with images. Indiesub - Something to do with crowdfunding. Leannote - Something to do with taking notes Pipebit - Something to do with automation. Podcast Database - After a few podcast databases disappeared and after I really could have done with one I set upon the task of creating one of my own. PodDB is at its core essentially just a database of podcasts with an API on it. You then build your site/app/etc on top of the DB. Podhex - Something to do with podcasts. Podrating - Something to do with rating podcasts Podsift - Something to do with searching podcasts
Ideas that were too zany, dumb, already-in-existence, or expensive to ever have a chance.

They’ll get a little love every so often, especially for security issues, but they’re for the most part idle and will remain in whatever condition they’re in now forever
eggbot - eggbot the foul mouthed robot is an IRC bot that speaks to people using a markov chain. What that means is it remembers everything it sees in terms of “this word is usually followed by this word”. From there whenever someone triggers the bot either through referencing it by name or on a random interval […] Thud - What is a thud? It’s a loud sudden noise, hyuk hyuk.
