Step Back

I’ve had a technical problem plaguing me at work for the past 3 weeks. While I’ve tried very hard to let it not affect me, it’s been hard running away from it. See the thing about me (and this is something I really should work on) is that when I have a problem that I […]

Battlestar Galactica

Just to be perfectly clear, this post probably has spoilers, or links to spoiler materials, so if you’ve not watched the first season, take it from me and go buy it then come back a week later and read the post.

Seeing as we don’t seem to agree on comic book movies (you are soo wrong), […]

Free Opera 8.02

Free Opera. As part of Opera’s 10 year Anniversary celebration it’s giving away it’s browser for free. That’s today only people. Read the footnotes. (via designateonline)

Mobile Phones

On my 26th birthday I was forced into seriously thinking about getting a proper mobile phone, with a proper contract. I’ve been pretty adverse to the idea, essentially because I feel it’s a bit of a rip off, which after a day of searching, it effectively is. The problem however still remains that it […]


Update: Seems there’s a wordpress bug that I didn’t know about, if the topic name is a number then the post is broken. I’ve fixed it now by putting in some characters.

I remember when a coke was 50 drx (that’s Greek money), that’s the equivalent of 10p, or 20c, that’s bloody old.
I remember when […]

Flash Earth

Neave Lab’s Flash Earth Oh so so cool :).

David Mack’s Reflections

Artistically David Mack is one of my biggest influences. In fact he’s such an influence that my first foray years ago into actually colouring my work using water colours can be landed squarely on his lap. The man escapes the boundaries of traditional art and elevates everything he does to a level few can […]

Bryan Singer

Bryan Singer’s Superman Journal. Pretty great set of clips for you to download. Still think the costume is rubbish, but the casting of Clark is pretty spot on.

Broken Kode 4.0: Saida Part 1

Version 4.0 has been a long time coming, as I’ve been sitting on the design for at least 3 month now. The idea popped into my head sometime in May, just something snapped and the idea began to grow. By the time I came back from holiday I knew exactly what I needed to […]

Upgrade NOW!!!

Ok to all you crazy lazy cats out there, thinking that it’ll be ok not to upgrade your wordpress install. You might be ok, but then again you might not be. A couple of hours ago something strange happened here at the Kode, and I effectively lost all my files that are loose in the […]

Ultimate OS

My previous windowz fart obviously as it would, started making me thinking about operating systems, and the like. I’ve had a couple of days to mull it over and this is something I’ve been meaning to talk about for a while now. Joen talked about why he wasn’t planning on switching in OSX anytime […]

Didn’t get away with it.

Update: Probably going to be offline throughout the weekend, while I sort my PC out. I’m going to load up a linux distro from CD to see if it’s actually a windows fuck up. Hopefully that’s all it is, and I can retrieve most of my data, and then simply format the box and start […]

chris webb

chris webb has got a new site up, and it’s such a clever idea.

Freedom of Expression

So I saw my uncle on sunday. Whenever I see the good doctor I always end up sitting there and taking in some serious pearls of wisdom. More often than not he’ll give me a small history lesson. Stuff I never learnt in school, stuff that captivates my imagination. Today he was telling me about […]

The Internet is 10 years old.

So I’m waiting for Stathis to get his lazy ass to the station, and seeing as I was a little bit early I went into the nearest store to check the latest magazines. While I’m in there I noticed the latest Wired issue. Now bear in mind I’ve never bought Wired in my life. It […]

WinDirStat Home Page

WinDirStat Very cool Windows stats program (open source software, which I always have time for).


LifeHut Go check it out, then come back and thank me for pointing it out to you.


Update: One comment was all it took to make me realise that my post was lacking in something fundamental. Damn you Heilemann! I’ve added a few bits and pieces since I published this a full hour ago.

When I first started Broken Kode it was originally meant to be the online account of my trials and tribulations […]

Amin Maalouf - Leo the African

I just finished reading this seminal work by the great Amin Maalouf, who is a fellow Lebanese. See before reading this book and researching into the other books that the man has written, I used to think that one of the greatest things to come out of Lebanon of Gibran Khalil Gibran (he of ‘The […]
