Edit HTML tables

Professional HTML Editor is an online WYSIWYG HTML editor which allows you to easily convert any document file to clean HTML code, or clean existing code. I find it particularly useful as a tool for editing HTML tables. You’ll need to subscribe (or know your way around Developer Tools) to use it on a Friday. Try it out at

Extract images from PDF files enables you to extract images from PDF files and save them in your chosen format using it’s browser-based web app at


As 2017 draws towards a close I find myself living in the interesting times referred to in the (possibly apocryphal) Chinese curse.

I am therefore in the process of actively evaluating my future plans on both a personal and professional level in order to try to find a path forward that will maximise my success and happiness.

This will involve a number of changes to how (and in due course possibly where) I live.  As Tupac Shakur eloquently put it in his hip-hop classic Changes

Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live
And let’s change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn’t working so it’s on us to do
What we gotta do, to survive.

This is really intended as an introduction to a number of themes that I hope to touch on in forthcoming but as yet only half-formed and unwritten posts:  I have of late and Reboot 5.2, exploring  my continuing experience of mid-life existential angst and how I intend to resolve it.

Today is a snowy Sunday in Ellesmere however, and as a small first step I am devoting it to moving my blog to my new WordPress hosting platform and giving it a much needed makeover.
