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...


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...


A Bit of Clearing Out II

Parents were rummaging through my room for some stuff they stored away long ago which meant I had to move everything out despite tidying up since the last clear out. So, I decided to see what else I could clear out once again. In the end I found a mix of other bits and pieces like ten year old school jotters as well as more magazines stowed...


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...


A Stroll in the New Year's Snow 2009

Looks like the east of UK has been receiving some heavy snow - the heaviest in 18 years. And it's really hampering traffic and other public services. A few schools were closed in my area and of course, children are out sledging, throwing snowballs and building snowmen. It's about 30cm deep, fluffy powdery snow not the kind that falls on...


Happy Chinese New Year!

Nothing happening in town over here as far as I'm aware or I would have gone for one of my photo strolls again but, will be dropping by for the family and friends dinners later as tradition goes. Hope those of you celebrating and are still within that age range have plenty of red pockets. Happy Chinese New Year! "ヽ(≧∇≦ヽ) 新年快樂 心想事成 (ノ≧∇≦)ノ"...


Sony MDR-V300 Headphones and PC Front Panel Interference

Decided to pick up a pair of headphones so I could enjoy my media and games without disturbing other people in the house at night. Wasn't really sure which one to get since there doesn't appear to be that many good headphone review sites about. Instead of opting to order online, I went to the high street stores because I wanted to see them...


Shifting the Layout A Bit, Blog Content and Friend Codes

You'll probably have noticed I've moved and changed a few things on the blog today and it's all temporary until I get round to building my new theme. I've already sketched out the designs but the problem is the graphics and coding work involved. Some of the ideas I'm not sure how to appraoch yet and will require some research. It will all...


Microsoft Products, Maximum Number of Activation Times

Never knew there was a maximum number of times for activating Microsoft products so I was surprised it wouldn't let me activate over the internet this time after I upgraded my PC and was re-installing it. I was thinking to myself, "Why did I buy this when I can't freely install it on my own machine?" I usually like to clean up my PC now and...
