I'm an avid programmer, enjoy creating things, enjoy a good puzzle and especially enjoy foxing people with a Java puzzle now and again!

Outside of my coding life, I have a number of other interests, including outdoors activities such as hiking / geocaching / letterboxing. I'm also fond of music - I enjoy listening to it as well as playing the piano and violin.

comment Improved splash screen design
@MarcEdwards I've just timed it again and it's actually more like 2-3 seconds - there's more optimisation I could do but I've already had to try pretty hard to get it down to that!

comment Improved splash screen design
@MarcEdwards It's a desktop app - the splash screen is shown for about 5 seconds on the average machine while the application is loading. I could just remove it, but I'd quite like some consistent visual indication that it's loading up rather than just sitting there!

comment Improved splash screen design
Thanks for those points - appreciated! By the logo I meant the bird rather than the text, but I agree the text needs some work as well. The whole thing is just for an open source project that I've cobbled together, and I'm pretty much the sole active developer so the visual aspect of things hasn't had much of a mention! Do you think it needs anything besides the bird and logo? It still looks a bit bland to me, but I don't want to end up cluttering things up...

comment “Serifs improve fast, easy readability for long text” - myth or truth?
This may also be a good candidate for skeptics.se.
