Console Cable Switching Time

The old TV broke down in the house which meant we had to get ourselves a new one. Obviously that meant going for an HDTV with a digital tuner built in so that we were ready for the digital switch over. My parents blame my Wii because they both showed an increase in red colours before they drew their last cathode rays. I don't think the Wii is...


Earth Hour 2009

"When the lights go down there is no sound... And the night becomes a shining stage." Didn't know about "Earth Hour" until today when I just happened to come across someone's post on Danny Choo.com and thought I'd join in. You're just expected to turn out the lights between 8:30 and 9:30pm to show your concern for Earth and global...


Watching the Early Spring Evening Skies

Bit of a more personal post this... Watching the early spring evening skies as the clouds flow by, change colours and dimming with Frederick Chopin's "Grand Waltz Brilliant" playing in the background was very soothing for some reason today. Just happened to have it playing from the Eternal Sonata soundtrack as I was getting up to...


Cloud Computed Gaming, Never Buy New Hardware Again

"Cloud computing" isn't a new concept but, the meaning of the term is still currently very ambiguous in the IT industry at the moment and has only been getting more attention of late thanks to the increase of affordable high speed internet access in homes. Everything done on home computers are currently processed on your own machine...


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...

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...


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...
