PHP fixups completed!
24/5/2020 14:16
My hosting-service upgraded the PHP version ... and that broke all my rotten PHP code that accessed MySQL databases!

It's my own fault, really. They've given repeated warnings that it was going to happen, but I've always had something 'better' to do.

So this should fix-up the front page (wot you are reading now) plus phpArcScan, the RSS generator, and one or two other bits. Though it's quite telling that this has been broken for weeks, but no-one has mentioned it. Almost as if no-one uses phpArcScan any more ... (sniff)

I've been asked a few times by readers about whether pre-made PCBs can be purchased ... frequently enough that replying with "there's no demand for it" is patently untrue. So, as an experiment in could-I-quit-my-job-and-design-kits-all-day I'm testing the water with my Simple EEPROM Programmer kit.

Back after hosting service merge
3/2/2017 13:00
My hosting service (Ariotek) has merged with hosting service Krystal, so they've migrated all my content over. This has generated a few hiccups - mostly regarding the address of my MySQL server, and so on. This has affected Wordpress blogs, my website frontpage, phpArcScan, and so on. Should be all fixed now.

My hosting service have finished migrating over to new servers, so I've had to fixup some SQL server names. Hopefully everything should be working again now ...

Need a bit more variety from your fixed-width bitmap fonts? Text embedding into autogenerated bitmaps looks a bit lacklustre? Have no fear! A few hundred fonts from !Zap are now converted for your printing pleasure.

Following feedback from some users, I've fixed some bugs relating to searching, allowed provision for extending the maximum number of search results, enforced some data's sort order ... and one or two other minor things that most people won't have noticed. :)
