Looking on Youtube I notice there’s a whole truckload of ‘remix’ versions of the cadbury gorilla advert.  here’s my pick of the best.

And the ‘way too much caffeine’ award goes to:

The Best advert ever made?

Posted in Ajax Links on September 29, 2007 by Shaun

As a drummer and a massive fan of coming in the air tonight by Phil Colins, it has to be said that I may be a little biased.  But I saw this advert during a break in the rugby world cup this afternoon, an I am totally impressed.

Aptana IDE goes dual license

Posted in Web Development on September 24, 2007 by Shaun

Aptana is one of the most popular web development IDE’s available in the open source arena today, and definitely my tool of choice.  Up until now Aptana has been released under the Eclipse license.  Recently they changed the licensing to a new Aptana Public License and this week they added GPLv3 to the mix to enable a more OSI compliant licensing structure.

This is a welcome move by the Aptana development team and should ensure that Aptana continues to grow from strength to strength.

ajaxwindows goes live

Posted in General Blah! on September 11, 2007 by Shaun

An interesting concept has just gone live on t’internet.  a web based version of windows… this is an interesting concept it’s like a mobile OS that you can log into from anywhere.  I played with it a bit this morning and though I found the performance a little slugish, everything pretty much worked.  you get a text editor and links to your webmail.  you can even synch files via your Gmail account.  I thin the concept is interesting and it certainly shows off the skills of the developer but I just can’t see this taking off.

I have to admit I love the RailsEnvy videos, I’m certain they just p!55 plenty of people off but they are entertaining.
