Camera advice? Dec 2, 13, 8:04 a.m.
I am going to treat myself to a camera for Christmas.
I will be mainly shooting video (would like 1080 60fps feature if poss.) but photos also.
I am looking at Gopro Hero 3+ but it has a fixed focus I think? No autofocus? May be wrong.
Would I better getting a compact DSLR?
if so what would yo recommend?
I only want to spend about £400.
Gopro quality was v.impressive but as I want to take the odd photo as well I am not sure whether it is the best option.
Archives on websites Nov 12, 13, 6:54 a.m.

Just wondering if anyone has any nice and/or unusual examples of archives on websites.
Thanks in advance.

Wordpress - running multiple sites off one database? Jul 30, 13, 4:33 a.m.
My client doesn't want to pay for 8 databases for 8 websites I am building for him in Wordpress.
All sites are on the same server with aliases. The first one I have built is using the mySQL available.
How feasible would it be to run 8 sites off one database using separate tables?
Are there big performance issues?
Can I import data just into one table easily via phpMyadmin?
Excuse the ignorance - never done this before apart from my own site when I tested some Wordpress stuff using my database.

Apple Ads Jul 3, 13, 1:10 a.m.
Really not sure about these. They look amateurish. The typography looks weak. Photography looks like stock.
Really doubt Job's would have signed off these.
What do you think?

Been asked to do a legal firm logo May 23, 13, 2:17 a.m.
This isn't my main focus of work (identity) and law is probably the most cliche riddled sector there is.
They want a logo with an emblem of some description (not just type).
Where do you guys start with this?
I am sketching but keep just ending up with type treatments.
Its low budget so needs to be done quick (part of a website job). I know this isn't the way of doing things but its bread and butter.
sliding top panel wordpress May 22, 13, 3:14 a.m.
Anybody know of a wordpress plugin that does the call back sliding panel at the top if this site?

I can get the code and redo it but need something quick as behind on project.
User video upload with voting capability? Apr 23, 13, 8:48 a.m.
I have been asked to quote a site that will need to allow registered users to upload a video.
Users will then vote on videos for a competition.
I have a feeling much of this will have to be created bespoke but does anyone know of anything that may be helpful?
I have been looking into wordpress / buddypress to build it but not having much luck finding anything similar.
Any pointers would be very appreciated.
wordpress import problem Apr 11, 13, 8:39 a.m.
I have updated a client wordpress site with a new theme and page structure and content on a different install for development. I now want to add all of her blog content to it. Text works fine with the import/export tool but for some reason it is not bringing in any of her attached content such as galleries. Any ideas?
I have read the import function is temperamental but there isn't much point in it if it won't import all content.
Is there a quick way of doing this?
Or should I just apply all the changes I have made (and new theme) to her existing site? Which means it will be down for a few hours...
Hence why I did it the other way as I can just switch the new one on quickly when she is ready to go live.
Any pointers or tips to solve this issue would be much appreciated.
Slow client and payment Mar 28, 13, 2:10 a.m.
I have 95% completed a website for a client. They payed 50% upfront. I am waiting on last few bits from them to complete then half a days training on using the CMS. It was started in Jan and its nearly April. I asked the client if I could invoice 50% of the remaining amount with final bit due on going live. He says he would rather wait!
What would you do here? I sent a slightly annoyed email. I have a v.basic contract stating 50% at start and 50% at completion but as he is being so slow and they are happy with the work I thought they would at least be a little flexible.
To kern or not to kern Mar 20, 13, 7:44 a.m.
Is it just me or is the kerning poor on this - or is part of the charm of his work?
should we not get too obsessed with such things and let things be more natural (I know its a woodblock but shouldn't really matter):
