Picking Earphones and Speakers, A Guide to Better Audio

I've read, experimented and learned a lot about audio since upgrading my home speaker setup to a surround sound one and switching my pre-packaged earphones to better quality ones. So, I thought I would share the information I've gathered so that more people can enjoy their favourite music (and perhaps movies too) at its best. Ive...


Nokia 5800 Review, GPS Navigation and Internet on a Smartphone

Decided to replace my current mobile with a smartphone because I thought internet on the move and GPS would come in handy when scouting for new places for the odd photo stroll or good spots for practising my photography. However, I didn't want to pay the price of a laptop for say the HTCs or an iPhone so I decided to try the Nokia 5800...


Persona 3 Portable Official Fanbook ::

- Update - Not really much to do with the fanbook but... Just in case anyone's been wondering why the Japanese gave the P3P Heroine the unofficial name "Hamuko", Kita-san kindly explained that it maybe because in Atlus' TGS2009 trailer, they named her as "主人 公子" instead of  "主人公" (which I think is most likely a typo). If you take 公子...

Migrating to a New Host ::

20th February 2010, 23:35 GMT Update: Finally. If you see this message then you're now at my new domain and host. It was pretty troublesome trying to import the big SQL database over because phpMyAdmin wouldn't accept anything bigger than 2MB. I ended up trying to figure out how to import it directly via an SSH session and the command...


Evangelion 2.0 UK Premiere Impressions ::

Since I couldn't check online to see how many of the 394 seats at the Glasgow Film Theatre were reserved, I thought I'd try to find out while I was there to pick up my tickets for the Evangelion 2.0 UK Premiere. Apparently over 200 seats were reserved by Friday so I guess all those people that posted on the forums about how they were going to...


Happy Chinese New Year 2010! ::

Happy Chinese New Year to those of you who celebrate it! Went out to Glasgow's Chinatown to catch the lion and dragon dances performed by the Glasgow Hong Lok Dragon and Lion Dance Troupe since I just happened to notice the poster they had up last night while out at a family dinner. Met an old friend while I was there who I hadn't kept in touch...
