The referendum to repeal the 8th amendment to the Irish constitution is happening in a couple of days, and you should vote yes.

It’s vital that women in Ireland have freedom over their own bodies, and frankly I don’t think that there needs to be any further justification than that. If you feel some kind of religious or moral obligation to vote no, I urge you to do some balanced research, and at least consider reconsidering.

Repealing the 8th amendment is a necessary step towards better physical and mental healthcare for women; retaining it would mean continuing to cast off a very serious issue that isn’t going away, when we should instead be extending a helping hand towards those who need it.

Some calculations on what might be required for a VR/AR headset to provide a 'Retina display' experience.

Some improvements to my app, Spectralizer.

On Saturday night, I saw a beautiful sunset during a car journey, and did what I've done many times; I took out my phone, took a picture, and was disappointed with the results. Between the movement of the car, the lack of light, and the reflections on the car window, it was a blurry mess. The colours were very nice, though, which led me to this idea...

Spectralizer takes a horizontal or vertical row of pixels from an image, then stretches them to create a high-resolution image comprising the colour palette of the original image. Suddenly a blurry, disappointing image becomes an interesting, abstract image with the same colour tones as the source. I think they make really nice wallpapers, and just nice images to look at in general. It's fun to see the patterns that come out.

It's free to download, give it a whirl!
