I have been spending the last month or so studying some HTML and CSS, thanks to a birthday present I was given! I have now managed to completely redesign my website and have, for the first time, designed it from scratch coding most of it myself.
I then converted my HTML code into the right format for WordPress (including many hours learning PHP and WordPress functions to bring all the elements of the pages together), and produced a site that is fairly clean, and contains most of the elements I want to show off.
There are now new sidebars on most pages with links to things that I read often, and I have updated my photo galleries to hopefully show off the photos a bit better. I have also tidied up the blog section and hopefully made the posts a bit clearer.
Feel free to have a browse and point out any issues or bugs that I haven’t been able to troubleshoot myself.

I have downloaded wordpress and am giving it a go…all the blogging content is now stored on my website, so I am no longer reliant on blogger (whose mobile application was terrible). I will be experimenting with this over the next few months to see if it can replace the old blogger app.
Initial views are good and it seems very customisable and the content seems to be comprehensive. Let’s see how it goes…

Well this is my first post on my new blog here on Blogger. I hope to post some interesting stories, comments and articles as and when I can find the time. Today’s short blog will be all about films. Enjoy…
Firstly, news of the Belfast Film Festival. The 2010 programme was released today and it is packed full of interesting cinema from across the globe to go and see, as well as some excellent-looking films from Ireland. The festival has been extended to 16 days this year to mark the 10th anniversary of the event. I’ve had a quick look through the list of films and have got a ‘short’ list of 22 films to see – better narrow that down slightly to suit the budget!
On other film matters, me and my fiancee are going to see the new Jean-Pierre Jeunet film Micmacs on Thursday at the Queen’s Film Theatre in Belfast. I liked Amelie and Delicatessen although Ellen was not so keen, so it will be interesting to see what she thinks of this new one…we’ve seen some ‘interesting’ films recently, although none of them have really blown us away so a good one would be particularly welcome. Actually, the best film we have seen recently is Taken with Liam Neeson. The story is typical of Luc Besson, but intriguing nonetheless. Neeson in particular makes a really good tough guy.
Well that is all for now. More soon…
