The Design Droid – Coupons

I was doing some updates to www.thedesigndroid.co.uk over the weekend and I found the coupons section after a quick read up on how they work.

Well , what can I say, how utterly brilliant! Once I’d worked out how to bring in a few graphical assets I then went about adding them all together to create a template for all future coupon pop ups. Thankfully the system I have in place for the website creates quite a lot of image assets for the product images. I brought a few into GIMP, chopped a bit here and cut a bit there and it wasn’t long before I had a nice background in place dressed up with a few CSS tweaks to create the final popup. Well pleased with the final result!

Once I’d set up when and where it was to do its thing the rest was just down to making sure the code was valid and that it tallied up with the expiry date of 1st March 2021 – Note to self remove pop up from site on that date!

Code: LAUNCH10
Enter this at the checkout and you will receive a nice 10% discount on whatever is in your basket! Nice one!

Before I start this post I’d like to send out a big thanks to Quang from Asobitech for putting Danny (BBC Level 23) in touch with me without whom I would not have been a guest on the show – thanks man I appreciate it! (Quang is awesome by the way check out Mao Mao Castle which I had the pleasure of playing at EGX 2019 – if you love Space Harrier you will adore this! – Check it out >>>here<<< ).

So where was I…Ah yes...BBC Level 23 – I’ve given a fair number of interviews over the years; some in print, some on the web, some as audio and a few on video, so when I was approached by BBC 3 Counties radio to feature as a guest on their Level 23 gaming show I couldn’t say no could I.

I was honoured when Chris (Wilkins) invited me to join my old Sensible mate Jon Hare to give a talk about all things Sensible Software at the recent Retro Revival 2019 event in Walsall, UK.

The thing is I’ve never actually been to a retro gaming event before so I had no idea what it was going to be like. I’d seen a few photos on line from similar events but up until this point I hadn’t attend one. Crazy right?
