Hi and welcome. I'm a software developer based in Loughborough, Leicestershire in England. I needed a spot to try out new things for websites and host some of my projects, this is it. Feel free to browse the site or read my blog.

Well, here it is. Finally released the new mobile responsive version of NiceBytes! Should be able to browse all the pages and use the blog facilities including the Disqus commenting system on a mobile friendly version on the appropriate device.

Each page can now render for mobile or desktop, including different layouts for certain pages using CSS. Also spent a lot of time removing lots of 'table' tags and replacing them with 'div' tags.

Hope you enjoy the new site.

If you aren't using a responsive technique to display your site for both mobile and desktop from one page source, this great little bit of VB ASP.NET code will help you redirect to the appropriate version of your site. It is worth noting that I discovered iPads return themselves as a 'mobile device' and there is an override I added specifically for this.

If (Request.Browser( "IsMobileDevice" ) = True) Then
    If (Request.Browser( "MobileDeviceModel" ) <> "IPad") Then
        Response.Redirect( "m/default.aspx" )
    End If
End If

I have discovered in Windows 8 that moving the slider to the bottom does not fully disable UAC anymore. And I still have old programs which need UAC off in order to run correctly.

You need to run secpol.msc -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options ->
User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode -> Disabled.

... in order to turn off UAC completely. Upon doing this it will prompt you to reboot your computer.
