Logitech X-540 Speakers Review

I almost got the wrong parcel when I received this by City Link in the morning and it gave me quite a scare because I had already signed for it too! I was stupid enough to give the guy back the wrong parcel before he exchanged for the correct one. Luckily it was an honest guy and he came back with a much bigger box but I really need be on my toes next...


The 1st Global Makoto Shinkai Day

Just when I was reading over Kazuma Kaneko's thoughts about the "powers" of the internet and how it compares with the "spiritual world" I came across this... Looks like fans from all over the world will be gathering together at the Makoto Shinkai English Fan Forum this weekend to chat with each other while watching his movies. If you...


Atlus' Kazuma Kaneko Talks Spiritual World and the Internet

Was dropping by Atlus Net to see if I could find some bits of new info about their games and came across this instead. The artist responsible for all the "Devil" designs in Atlus' MegaTen and Persona series Kazuma Kaneko, writes in his company blog entry fourty-five about his view of the spiritual world (霊界) and how it's like the...


Service Price Plan Changes and Customer Notification

It's been a year since I decided to go for paid hosting and I've yet to make good use of the extra flexibility that having a free account such as at Wordpress.com doesn't have, i.e. developing my own web application and writing my own code. Well, at least I don't have to depend on free image hosts anymore or worry about lots of broken images...


Wordpress Recovery from Failed v2.7.1 Upgrade

Decided to upgrade Wordpress this morning from v2.7 to the latest 2.7.1 for all the bugfixes and patched up potential XSS vulnerabilities. Thought I'd try using the new built-in automatic upgrading feature via the browser but, that was when things went pear-shaped. A browser time-out error occurred during the upgrade and the...


Kemono no Souja Erin, Episodes 2 ~ 7 Summaries

Decided to continue blogging (well, summarise anyway) about "Beast Player Erin" which is based off  a two part novel series because it kind of (dare I say it) has a Ghibli touch to it. Well, until episode six anyway. It has a rich world but the main focus has mainly been on how strong the relationship is between two characters namely Erin...


Rideback, Episode Summaries 06 ~ 09

It's the sixth summer since the death of Rin's mother and she goes to pay her respects with her grandmother but Kenji her brother is nowhere to be seen. One evening after going on a walk with the recovering Shouko, Rin comes across her brother together with a bunch of delinquents on Ridebacks, terrorising the town. When the GGP Global...


Drivers for an Old LPT Printer in Windows Vista

I decided to upgrade to Windows Vista some time ago for its official DX10 support. I actually like its searchable Start Menu, file navigation and bigger Quick Launch bar icons too but anyway... Presumed it would come with drivers for my old Canon BJC-4100 because WinXP had included them but just when I needed to print something off at...


Correct Orientation of the British Flag

I hate to say this but... Never knew the British flag, the Union Jack was oriented a certain way until I came across the BBC News reporting the mistake made at the UK-China Ceremony earlier this week. Notice the pattern isn't symmetrical and the upper-left white diagonal stripe should be thicker. So in other words, that corner of the...


Panoramic Photography

Took this photo yesterday, a day after the snow blizzards at the same place on top of a hill. Decided to give the Canon Powershot A720's "Stitch Assist" mode a whirl because the skies were so clear and I could see the Campsie Hills in the background. This helps locate the seams in the scenery but unfortunately, the camera limits you to auto...
