Adobe AIR comes to the UK

On April the 9th me and Brian (I wish he would start to update his twitter again) will be attending the Adobe AIR tour in London.

I'm going to try and think up a little AIR app to celebrate this but I'm going to wait untill the top secret project has finished before I get stuck into that.

I'm also going to try and get Brian to help me out with the ideas and production.


Over the Easter weekend Gina and myself went up to Newcastle and spent a few days with her family.

Her mom came up with the crazy idea of making some Easter eggs... and here are the results

How many developers does it take to figure out some stats

Matt, Andy and Rich stress over some numbers

Mumblings of a web developer

Thought I'd link up my twitter in here

check it out if you dare

Help wanted

Apply within,

As you may or may not have read, recently I have been revisiting places long forgotten in im persona and filling some boots as a hardcore Flash developer. During this time it has become apparent that we need a Senior Flash Developer!

So it gives me great pleasure to announce that the company I work for, twentysix Leeds are recruiting a new Senior Flash Developer.

The role requires years and years of expert experiance of Adobe Flash, ActionScript 2 and ActionScript 3. Knowlage of Object Oriented techniques and all the other usual stuff is a must! Knowlage of other web technologies are a bonus so don't forget to tell us about them when you email Matt with your application ( ).

If you think you might be interested then why not head over to our portfolio and see what kind of work we do for fantastic clients such as HUGO BOSS Fragrances, Lacoste and Silent Night Beds amongst others.

HTTP monitoring on windows

As a web developer watching data being sent over your network connection is often important and sometimes essential for reliably debugging your work (when you're not sure if you clagged togheter code is making spurious requests in the background or not).

Today I'm still building the top secret Flash project which is going well and is now into thousands of lines of code and it's starting to get complicated. Flash 8 on my Dell M70 takes around 30 seconds to build the swf.

Any way, so I needed to watch the HTTP trafic coming out of my SWF to make sure it was doing what it was supposed to do. I considdered running it through a web page and using firebug's net monitor or getting Charles installed but it occured to me that the most reliable source (on windows at least) would be a microsoft tool that I'd seen Matt pratting about with a while ago, Microsoft Network Monitor 3.1.

Once you have downloaded and installed that, simply click "Create a new capture tab" and then in capture filter tab paste the following:

contains (Property.HttpHost, "")

where "" is the host name of the server you wish to watch traffic for then press the start button and you will see all your HTTP (web) traffic from any application to that domain
