Mr Speaker

Who is Mr Speaker?

Ooops. I accidently went and won WebJam 2 with little more than a handful of Web Sequins. Sorry about that! Well, what's done is done; just be sure to carefully consider your voting choices in the future. When I'm a bit more sober I'll get a write-up up here. Is that right? write-up up?

In the interim, such notoriety is likely to drive hordes of intrigued web nerds this way, so perhaps I should provide you all with a quick-start guide to the magical journey of Mr Speaker: The blog.

Now... I do try to make every post informative and mesmerising, but mostly they just turn out frivolously irrelevant. There have been very few highlights over the years. Here they are:

Hacking Windows Pinball
A cool cheat mode I found buried in the Windows Pinball code, along with a helpful guide for figuring this stuff out for yourself - an introduction to reverse engineering.

The Fonz uses AJAX to spy on you
Oooh... controversial stuff here! Well, not that bad, but at least it includes a damn sweet text adventure game to illustrate a point!

Beer o'clock - the Firefox extension.
A popular Firefox extension for counting down the minutes/work-in-progress-meetings/Simpsons' quotes until that delightful beer o'clock.

Air CSS Battle
Using the same technique as my award-winning sequin, here is a DOM scripted version of the Atari 2600 classic - Air Sea Battle

Kentucky Fried Chicken Feen
Quite possibly the greatest food known to man. As invented by me.

Ok, maybe there are a few more nuggets to be found around here. I dare you to dig them up.


  1. Woo! Congrats again dude. And more congrats for not knowing wat you’d won until Lach explained it at the end of the night.

  2. Well done! I just wonder though – if maybe you’d used my brilliant idea (of dressing as half clown, half normal person, and jumping around between them) – maybe you might have won TWO awards, instead of just one?

  3. Thanks manton… I’m truly glad I came to you for help on that one! And yeah Andrew, that was a bit of a shock actually – but the best part of the prize was the sweet mini-ninja thats now sitting on my monitor!

  4. I still think the ninja should get with the hula girl.

    Well done Mr.SuperWebJammerMan.
