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!


Chattin’ Bull! - This one actually isn’t a programming related project, it’s a podcast! Me and my mate Fox chat about basically anything that comes to mind, we always try to fix each episode around a subject but rarely manage to keep to it. Tangents and waffling abound! Chattin’ Bull!


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 […]

In Progress

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!

DNSMan - DNSMan is your DNS management system. Domains all over on Cloudflare, Route 53, DigitalOcean? No worries! Keep them there, manage them here


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
Feedfinish - Something to do with RSS feeds.
Imghex - Something to do with images and possibly the hosting of said 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.
