Drupal 10 is now live!
This is a system update which moves the codebase on from some legacy dependencies which are no longer being supported. Modern web apps are systems with foundations in other systems, a long chain of inter-dependency which is what gives Drupal its enormous power. It can also be an enormous pain in the neck!
All of our sites have now been updated to Drupa 10 - well, almost. There are a couple of modules blocking a couple of sites, but these are edge cases which we anticipate being fixed very quicky.… Read More
I saw an article about a Flash emulator this morning and I was so excited I had to give it a whirl.
The link below is to a thing I made with artist Tomoko Takahashi back in about 2000. It's a word processor made in Flash using drawings that she made - and some fonts I created from her handwriting. It saved things that you wrote to a text file using asp - which no longer functions as you can well imagine!
It was part of her Turner Prize exhibition at the Tate Gallery. The coolest thing was going to the Tate, and getting let in… Read More
This month, Drupal announced its plans for the end of life of Drupal 7. This has been pushed back a number of times over the past couple of years, partly due to the Covid pandemic, but it looks like Drupal now have a solid position.
Here is an excerpt from Drupal's statement:
"On February 23, 2022, we announced that we would be extending the End-of-Life for Drupal 7 until at least November 1, 2023. Today, we are officially announcing that Drupal 7 will reach its end of life on January 5, 2025. With this final extension, the… Read More

We are thrilled to announce the launch of a brand new e-commerce site for Braid Wines & Altar Supplies.
The website has been in development over the summer and is now live! The site is built using Drupal 9 and Drupal Commerce, which give us a great framework to build e-commerce websites and manipulate data in whatever form it comes, whether it's an image, an article or in this case a product.
We are getting close to finalising the logo for Wiki Tribune Social.
The site is centred around 'subwikis' which are inter-connected globs of information represented by the transparent dots. All of the subwikis go to make up a world. A Wiki world!
It's quite surreal to be working with internet legend Jimmy Wales, but it's great to be involved in a project that could really be a force for good in the world - and act as a balance to the profit-driven social media companies.
New site coming soon!
Turtlereality has just launched another e-commerce website, this time for a manufacturer and designer of novelty socks - with a biblical bent.
We love the socks, they are witty and colourful and make ideal gifts.

When Elon Musk threatened to buy Twitter people began to look for alternatives. Listening to the radio, I heard Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, talking about something called WT.social which was offering safe harbour for Twitter refugees.
I had a look and was really amazed at the lack of design. It didn't look as if a designer had been anywhere near it. So I posted a few glib comments about how "it looks like 1998 in here" and "I'll do it for free - for the publicity. Hey, there's a good story!". I was very surprised to get an… Read More
We have just launched a new site for Bracknell Swimarium - what a great name!
It's a fairly simple site featuring information about their facilities. We made an intuitive attractive site, which sits comfortably in the overall world of the Swim School.
