24 hour tube petition re-opened

Reinstated Corin's petition on

"I petition the Mayor of London and the London Assembly to urgently reconsider opening the Tube on a 24-hour basis."

Now it is on a separate page. 24hourlondon now has twice the number of webpages ...

... apart from the iPhone API and the database management pages. :-)

Added a blog to Mercy Rescue Trust

A blog about a blog. Hmm.

Using Blogger for custom domains we've now integrated a blog into the Mercy Rescue Trust website. It is a gallery area to pass on stories based mainly on photographs.

A really useful tool for this was the Web Developer add-on for Firefox. By viewing the final rendered page with the mix of Blogger's stylesheets, the Blog template stylesheet and the Mercy Rescue Trust's stylesheet you can edit them in the browser to see which bit moves which. Then it is easy to copy the changes into the correct place. Very nifty.

24HourLondon launched

iPhone App with web-based API developed to deliver venues to an iPhone to those wanting to keep partying until the early hours of the morning in London.

Used JSON to transfer the information from the web to the App. The code is optimized for the expected thousands of simultaneous users. ;-)

Putting images in image tags (rather than in the background of the CSS) allowed them to be found easily by Facebook when pasting the link.

Developing an iPhone App

Top Secret development of an iPhone App soon to be launched! More details when it is finalised.

I'm doing the web-server database for the application which will serve the information based on geolocation to the app using JSON.
