New Web Design For 2022

It's been a year since the last re-design of verringer.com - that went pretty fast. We're now onto 10 years that I've owned this domain, which is quite an achievement - though I don't want to work out how much I've spent on hosting it over the years. This update removes the portfolio from my ...

New Web Design For 2021

My Instruments

I took up guitar originally so I didn't feel like I was cheating by having one on my wall, at this point it's become a bit more than an obsession and I'm collecting guitars for the sound, feel and look - something I didn't think I'd care that much about. I've also started to play a range of othe...

Here's the list to date: 2020: Bruce Springsteen - Letter To You 2019: Anna's Anchor - Everybody's Welcome 2018: Jo...

Why I Started an Online Radio Station in the Streaming Era?

A question I get asked all too frequently is “why did you make a radio?”, the answer is complex but simple at the same time. The simple answer is that I love music but that doesn’t answer why I chose to create a gaming radio. When I was younger I joined an online radio and loved the com...

Figured it was time to update my list of favourite addons to work with the latest XenForo version. I held off on the move to XenForo 2.x for a while as it wasn't possible to replicate everything from XenForo 1.x at the time, but it's now possible so I thoroughly recommend it!
