Well hello there…

Hello to everyone, and welcome to 2015.
I hope you all had a very happy Christmas and an even better new year.

For myself, it was busy but I enjoyed the festivities, and I must say I even managed not to get drunk at our new years eve party, which has got to be a first.

Over the last couple of months or so, I have been hard at work bringing the site upto speed with updates.
Over the Christmas period I had taken most “side” parts to the site offline. The blog being one, but also Chuckles n Such.
Having noticed a number of duplicated images, I shut the site down, removed all the images and have begun the time-consuming process of checking for duplicate images as well as preparing all the new images.
The site should hopefully be up and running again soon.

As for my personal health update, over the xmas season I had unfortunately managed to get the dreaded “lurg”.
A sickness bug is currently working its way around and sadly, it has affected my eldest child Caitlin and my youngest Jack and it would seem it was my turn shortly after. I felt so ill, headaches, hot and cold shivers, painful sinuses and bodily aches adding up to quite a miserable time.
Still, I’m on the mend and my only problem is now, is trying to stay awake!
I’m not sure if it’s the medication I’m on or just that the “staying at home” is becoming so tedious and “samey” it’s sending me into an endless spiral of tiredness.

Anyway, as I say I hope you all had a good Christmas time and I hope 2015 will bring you all you deserve and want.

All the best…

~ Roy


Knackered, but pleasantly pleased…

I’ve been working a little more on the Chuckles n Such website.
I’ve started tinkering with the stylesheets to get the look I want. Its not perfect and a few more tweaks are needed here and there. In addition, I’ve begin round two of collating images ready to be uploaded to the site, and they’re coming in thick and fast…

Again, I have been doing to background work over on the main Hub, a few tweaks etc just to smooth out a few glitches etc.
Other than that, the site is rocketing with visitors, more than I ever conceived.
In comparison, this site has nearly doubled rbcsoftware.co.uk’s yearly traffic in the space of three months, so well chuffed with that.

I’m now off to research a banner exchange program to try and generate even more traffic :o)

More updates…

Finally, I have sorted through the majority of the “Funny” images I have on my hard disks. The next job is to go through the CD-ROMS!!!
They are now online over at chuckles.rbcj-hub.co.uk if you fancy having a “chuckles” :o)

A few updates behind the scenes have been inputted, making the site a little safer and stable.
At this moment in time, this is all I have to report lol

For now, I’m off to bed…nitey nite

PS Before I forget, a number of things within this blog will be transferred over to the main RBCJ Hub as I’m trying to minimize duplicate entries (such as rants, images and other writings) and regain a little space, not that I need it at the moment…

Long time, no speaky & no writey

Well, I’ve been working on a new project. This time it is in relation to Defiance, Barnsley’s number one Hard Dance event.

Basically, I offered my services as there was an issue with the original site, and I offered to help, sort of my contribution to the scene.

The link is: http://www.rbcsoftware.me.uk/defiance247

Initially, the site is up and running as before, with some new features in there. New stuff will be added gradually as I liaise with the Owner and Promoter of Defiance Shane, AKA MC Genius.

That is about that really. I’ve spent so much time editing images, rewritting CSS scripts etc, that I have hardly had anytime to update much else.

Other than that, is everyone ready for Christmas?

I’m almost ready! Sick of spending money though!!!

Still, to see my daughter’s face when she opens her presents on Christmas Day will make it all worth while.

More soon, but for now…tat ta


I’ve just been flicking through my art work part of the site and notice some of the quality of the images are poor. The reason behind this, when I scanned them, being idle as I am, I didn’t take the paper out of the plastic sleeves they were in. Hence the pictures do look grainy.

I will over the next couple of weeks be updating these images and more than likely be adding a few more.

Sorry, its totally unprofessional I know.

As we continue…

Well, before I ship of to another broadband provider, I need to prep various aspects of RBCSoftware Online.
I’m looking for someone who can help me administer different parts of RBCSoftware.
I’m looking for someone who has had experience with all aspects of WordPress, and can work from home.

Also wanted, people to literally “piss and moan”.

Yes, that’s right, I want your rants, moans, gripes and annoyances.
Because there are not enough places to “get it off your chest”, that’s why!

My Visual Basic steps up a gear shortly, I have been working into the wee hours of the night on Fetch!
As mentioned on previous posts, the main work has come from stream-lining and down sizing code bloat, and stripping non-essential graphics and other media from the project.
New features will be mentions soon, and project updates will appear as they happen.

As a bit of a side project, I need facial shots of you guys.

I’m currently writing a simple “Zombie Shoot em up!” and I need the cannon fodder.
Already, I have myself Zombified, and I ask, if anybody would like to be a part of this project, please email me a photo of yourself that you don’t mind being Zombified.
You will have a special mention in the program, and I thank you in advance for your support.
Please email webmaster@rbcsoftware.me.uk with your photos. It does matter about size (dimentions) as I will edit this images anyway.

Before I go, I thought I would create a bit of a “silly competition” around silly┬árhymes. The best one will be chosen by the number of votes, drawn at the end of each month.
Email them to sillyrhymes @rbcsoftware.me.uk

Ciao for now peeps!

Day 1: Project – Fetch!

Right, so here it is.
After much delay, Project: Fetch! has now begun.

Fetch! (Previously known as XPRunnerNG) development has started, with the first signs of life being down on paper rather than any PC.
After spending a number of years developing test releases of XPRunnerNG, seeing what works and what doesn’t, I have essentially stripped to the bone XPRunnerNG.

I have big plans for Fetch! and I already have a number of ideas for addins etc.
However, that is for the near future.

I will be keeping logs, and making updates as they happen, including the full application history with regards to XPRunnerNG.

Many thanks to all who support my ideas, and certainly to the ones who have helped financially and with the overall development of XPRunnerNG/Fetch!
