I've added a much-requested (and much-needed) feature to PodStand - you can now have it email out your profile details. Previously it relied on cookies, and users bookmarking the signup page. Probably unsurprisingly, this often led to confusion and people losing access to their profiles. The new system also allows existing users to send out their details (assuming they still have their cookie/bookmark) by going to this page. I should note that it's an optional feature; you can stick with the cookie/bookmark system, but if you enter your email it's not stored and you'll never hear another peep from the site.

About a year ago, I made my trusty electric piano wireless using a Raspberry Pi Zero and some nifty software. It worked pretty well, but wasn't quite perfect. Here's how I made a better one, using an Arduino.

Here's a little app I made, my first of 2019, inspired by my girlfriend Karen Quinn's recent posting of images featuring quotations from her work. It's a simple little utility that lets you turn some text into an image, with lots of options for changing the layout, font, and more. Check it out on the App Store.

New project: a website that I think will be really useful for podcast discovery. It's very simple, you can create a profile, upload your podcast subscriptions, and browse other people's subscriptions. It's a cool way to see what others are listening to, and to find some new podcasts to listen to. You can also browse by podcast, and see everyone who listens to a particular show.

I've started a company - we're called N56 Software, and we're making apps and CMSs for events, festivals and venues. We're really excited to be working with Culture Night Belfast as our first partner, and will be launching soon. Have a look at our website for more info.
