A little part of the site where I can express myself.

My grandma… A part of my past has gone.

20140210-092722 pm.jpg

Hey everyone, I thought I would share with you my day, it was a long yet short day for all of my family as we gave our respects to her and prayed for her.

Being the poet that I am, I wrote a few poems, with some help from my family to make them better which I shall share with you.

For those people that don’t know my grandma was one of the kindest of people whom roamed this land, in my eyes anyway. She was a person who cared for many children, even those who weren’t directly related to her. A foster mother for many years.

All of my poems are untitled so if you have any suggestion of titles for them feel free to share in the comments box.

Poem 1
Growing wings, flying free,
My grandma means a lot to me,
Soaring high, in the moonlight sky,
No more problems to pass you by,
You’ve beat cancer once before,
But you shall suffer, no longer more.

Poem 2
You may be gone, but you’re never forgotten,
For when we meet you up in heaven,
We’ll enjoy spending time together,
Board games, card games, and people all present,
For taking you was a big mistake,
I write this poem to commemorate,
Your love, your life, and paradise.

Poem 3
Each night we shed a silent tear,
As we speak to you in prayer.
To let you know we love you,
And just how much we care.
Take our million teardrops,
Wrap them up in love,
Then ask the wind to carry them,
To you in heaven above.

I hope these poems speak to you also as much as they do to me.

Thanks for reading.


The difference between MySQL and MySQLi connections

Hey everybody,

It has occurred to me recently how easy but different the conversion from MySQL to MySQLi is. With only a few changes needed in the mark up. Let’s begin by looking at MySQL first.
<?php
$link = mysql_connect($host, $user, $password);
mysql_select_db($database, $link);
?>

And that is it. As you can see there isn’t much to it. It also works without the “$link = ” and “, $link” bits too. Now let’s check out MySQLi.

<?php
$link = mysqli_connect($host, $user, $password, $database);
?>

And that’s how simple it gets. I can not believe how easy the change is. Although from what I’ve read, any function that requires database connection does need to include $link (Or what ever you call the variable) in to it before it will even attempt to access the database.

Thanks for reading :) I hope you have learnt something from this. As I know I don’t post that much (Mainly because I don’t know what to post about) I appreciate your comments and feedback :)

Enjoy your day web users :)


My first Omegle prank

Hey everyone. I thought I’d take a look at Omegle.com. A website that works in the same fashion as Chat Roulette where everyone is connected to a random person and are able to talk to them using Text based chat and Voice and Video over IP.

I have been thinking for quite some time of what I would do because I have been quite bored at home and I was completing my set tasks on RuneScape of which I set.

So here we go. Please note: This video is all live and un-edited. So please remember to turn down the volume a little or otherwise unplug any earphones.

My latest YouTube Videos

Hey people, I just want to let you know, I’ve been getting bored recently so I uploaded a few videos to YouTube :) I’ll post them all here because I’m that cool :D

I did this as a fast quicktime screen recording test to view the quality of it.

QuickTime Screen Recording Test

Watch this video on YouTube.

I think it looks pretty good.

I was at my friends house for the weekend and his niece visited, and her being the cameragenic person she is wanted me to record her. So I did haha.

The Show of Courtney

Watch this video on YouTube.

It was a fun few days I spent there haha.

Originally this was just a camera test on my iPad, I wanted to see the quality it would produce and if I hadn’t moved it would have been the best copy ever.

Failed plane hijack attempt

Watch this video on YouTube.

I’m impressed at what it produced.

Right this one was a random clip I took to show my friend the kitten they wanted walking. It’s only short but it’s her first run.

Belle walking @ 4 weeks old so cute

Watch this video on YouTube.

I think it’s pretty cute. :)

Okay, this video I can’t really describe, but I was realllly bored one day so I decided to record the outside of my friends place.

Just a view of the street.

Watch this video on YouTube.

I couldn’t help but notice the car with the massive dent in it.

Right I have no idea why I recorded this one. But I did.

Can you tell I'm bored? Haha haha

Watch this video on YouTube.

It’s really random but it doesn’t hurt to capture anything does it? Who knows what may happen when you’re recording. (If you listen at the 12 second mark you can hear a female farting haha) :D

In this video it’s my friends second attempt at using my iPad to play the piano

Chelsea learning how to play the piano haha

Watch this video on YouTube.

Not bad but I should have recorded sooner haha.

I was playing about with Hangouts in Air I think it’s called by Google, Where you can have a live chatroom streamed directly on to YouTube.

Hola :)

Watch this video on YouTube.

I was also playing about with CamTwist for Mac

Almost done now, just two more new videos I uploaded. This one is of a 9 week old kitten sleeping right next to me on the couch arm, I think it’s really cute :D

Kitten sleeping cute cat :)

I shouldn’t have blinded her really though haha.

And the last one is a video of my friend dancing with their flatmates’ dog

Andrew Wood’s Impressions

Okay, here we have a video created by one of my good friends. He makes me laugh more than humanly possible with nearly every word that comes out of his mouth haha. I was up at his house earlier this week and I saw his recording process.

I was amazed at how easily his lines came to him.

If we are all supportive he will do an “Ask the Impression” segment videos where you ask one of his impressions a question and he will answer as they would :P Sounds cool and I’m looking forward to it.

Ciao for now internet peoples :)


I have completely lost my mind

I was going to use this blog to post things that happen in my life, I then soon realized my life is boring haha. I don’t do much and the things I do do I forget to blog about.

I don’t take many pictures of myself because I’m boring too.

I will use this blog for anything I feel like sharing, whether it’s a YouTube video I enjoy or a puppy I see in the street. So my blog may get a little more exciting for all the people that read my blog properly (5 people) I hope to obtain a wider range audience with posting random things :)

That’s all for now so I bid you a due and happy webbing people :)


A day for a year

Tomorrow is my girlfriend’s birthday and all I was able to buy her was a card which has been sitting in her apartment for the past week or two haha. She has been wanting to open it since she got back from her parents house in Korat (A town in Thailand) last week, I have been asking her not to open it until her birthday because it wouldn’t make sense until that date (which is mostly true) it does have sentiment and meaning but some of it can happen any day.

I will probably write another post once she shares the card on Instagram and twitter haha :)

Chompy, I love you so much and can’t wait for you to open your card :)
