Here's my .
I'm James, I'm from Yorkshire and am owned by two cats.

is my main thing, mostly low level and programming. I have a website and a channel where I gather together my nerdy pastimes.

Content here will mostly be about nerdy stuff, with zero politics or other annoying rubbish.

Oh that's very disappointing. Download and watch it on your desktop.

Or better still, upload it to your favourite discord server and watch...

Seems you can make video files with differing frame heights.

Webm files are beneficial to the Internet. Discuss.

While watching this video of a cat.

And was it really 8 years since I took a photo of some clouds? How time flies.

Also literally nothing in this picture exists any more. It's my old workplace, they knocked it all down.

This was widely regarded as a good thing.

Ah yes Google, we often talk about the time I emptied the lint trap on our old tumble dryer. Good times.

Some clickbait is so daft it's transcended the aim of making me click videos to the point I want it as a poster.

Just look at this 🤣

Hacking IoT Smart Plugs

Let's make the Internet of Things a bit more useful, and less like The Internet of Turd by hacking some smart plugs so they no longer phone home to China.

Internet Memes 

Me and ChatGPT have had a little conversation...

Bored. Might try convincing people "Kermit The Frog" is cockney rhyming slang for "dog".

I found a service menu on my Roku stick that let me do *something* to the adverts. Occasionally they break 😆

According to Fitbit, gardening is cycling

One of FitBit's more useful features is its ability to automatically detect exercise. I think it uses a combination of your heart rate and how the device is moving.

The pattern of motion and heart rates must be categorised by FitBit so the app can tell the difference between "swimming" and "running", etc.

It's not a precise system though.

Planting Fruit Bushes

Poundland sells cheap fruit bushes, and if you pick the ones with leaves on, they tend to grow fairly well and make a nice hedge type thing. If you pick the ones with no leaves on... they're dead, you're buying a dead plant... They're also not a pound each, but never mind.

It seems like every person born before 1980 has a baby photo of them being bathed in a kitchen sink and I have a theory that most of it stopped when people got dishwashers and realized it was a much more convenient way to clean their children.
