Sky Shot at Cowcaddens ::

Been a while since I made an entry in the photography section so while I was out yesterday to pick up my tickets for the Evangelion 2.0 UK premiere, I decided to go for a little location hunting again. Sky and silhouette shots are very common so making such photos stand out is tough but then again, photography is art so what one likes is a...


Chocolate with a Message ::

"Love me... Unwrap me... Eat me..."? That's quite a cheeky message isn't it...? Oh wait, it should be in this order! "Unwrap me... Eat me... Love me..." Er, yeah... Thanks for pointing out the obvious. Apart from the "love me" part. This French "Extra Dark Chocolate" tastes like water ^^;...


Kurokami The Animation, The Unaired Side Story

This is a side story from the Korean Manga based show Kurokami that was never shown on TV and came as a bonus item with the limited edition of the last Blu-ray disc, volume eight. It seems to take place somewhere in-between the events of episode 18 and centres around Excel. It doesn't expand the main plot in anyway. It's basically...


Increased Solar Activity May Disrupt GPS Signals ::

Just when I was planning to replace my current phone with a GPS enabled one too so that I can go adventuring for better photo shoot locations. Apparently the expected increase in solar activity over the next few years will send powerful magnetic waves over the earth. According to the BBC News, these waves will end up confusing the simple...


Monster Hunter Fortune Telling 2010 Edition ::

Want to mix in a little of the fun from games into your horoscopes instead of looking at the same old illustrations all the time? Monster Hunter Fortune Telling 2010 Edition is written by fortune teller Getters Iida in collaboration with Capcom and aims to foretell your fortune between April 2010 and March 2011. Apparently by deciding...


Evangelion 2.0 To Premiere at Glasgow Film Festival ::

It appears the second remake movie Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance will be on show next week in the UK on Monday 15th during the Glasgow Film Festival with subtitles. Since the Japanese DVD release won't be out until May 26th apparently, I think I will go see it on the big screen and see how many people here turn up for the evening! Will...


No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle Review

No More Heroes 2 takes place in Santa Destroy 3 years after the prequel. The city has developed a lot since then with high rise buildings everywhere but there's also plenty of killings and Travis Touchdown has dropped to 51st place in the rankings. A brother of one of the assassins that he killed meets him on the rooftops for revenge which...


Microsoft Office 2007 Buyers May Get 2010 Upgrade Free? ::

According to PC Pro, a Microsoft blog had suggested that anyone who buys any version of Microsoft Office 2007 between March and September this year maybe eligible for a free upgrade to the latest version 2010. I wonder if this applies to students who can buy (students in the US included) the Ultimate Edition for £40 instead of paying the...


Local Library Computer and Printer Access ::

Been a long time since I visited my local library - Why use it when you're in uni or have access to the internet at home? Well, maybe for novels or if you would prefer to have tangible books before you. Dropped in again after I needed something urgent printed off. My old inkjet printer's head failed again just when I needed it. It was working...


Perfect World International Review

Amongst the bigger paid MMORPG titles such as Blizzard's World of Warcraft and Square Enix's Final Fantasy XI, there's plenty of free titles out there. One of them is Perfect World (完美世界) from Chinese developers originally released back in 2005 in China before it hit the Western world in 2008. I thought I'd give it a try since it looked...
