I switched to using the Twenty Twelve WordPress theme a few days ago. I really am liking it although I’m not sure about the header image being below Site Title and Tag Line. That looks a little strange to me. Having said that, I think Twenty Twelve looks fantastic on the demo site. Currently you… Continue reading Twenty Twelve WordPress theme

## \(\LaTeX\) Equations in WordPress using MathJax

I decided to make some sort of clear perspex screen… Continue reading Using magnets to keep dust out of the cupboard
