Welcome! You've reached Julian M Bucknall's personal web site, boyet.com.

All Change!

After many years of static HTML pages on my website, today's the day I'm launching my new blog. Yes, Web 2.0 has now been around for many a year, and the Bucknall-meister finally gets round to using ASP.NET in the guise of Graffiti CMS.

So the new place to bookmark is blog.boyet.com, and the new feed to subscribe to is here.

This original website will remain in stasis, with all the action happening on the new blog. See you over there!

Since I don't have one now, although I'm quietly looking, I do the next best thing: I collect the old car dealer brochures for it. Not only for pictures of the car, but for the most fabulous 60s fashion and hair dos. Absolutely amazing, very trendy. Read more...

Code from the internet

I've done it, you've done it, if anyone programs for a living I'll bet they've done it. What, exactly? Got some code off the internet to solve a particular problem and used it in your current program. Read more...

Drunks On A Plane

Last time I visited our Glendale office I caught what has become my usual flight back to Denver: the 7pm Southwest flight from Burbank, which stops off in Las Vegas for a quick half hour en route. Unfortunately the only direct flight between Burbank and Denver is run by SkyWest on behalf of United and it's just more expensive as well as being on one of those regional jets. LAX, as a destination airport, is just too far away from the office, both in terms of distance and traffic. Read more...
