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...


Traffic and Top 10 Posts for Year 2008

Lets take a look at how my blog's been doing over the years since I first began it with a free Blogger account. It's shifted between various places since then and it's a pity I don't have screenshots that go that far back. According to Statcounter's statistics, the number of unique visitors has pretty much tripled since last year while...


The Move to a Dual Core Setup

Built this machine just before the new year. My graphics card have been acting up for a while now - It's been overheating and causing artefacts on the screen. Since I've been wanting to try out some of the latest PC games I decided to have a look for a new AGP card again, something better than my Radeon 9800XT. The best I can find with this...


Happy New Year!

Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu! I'd like to have one of those Kadomatsus sitting in the house just now! So has anyone thought of their New Year resolutions yet? I haven't but, one will probably be spending less because I've spent too much on hardware this year and even imported a figure! Should save up more so I can visit some other places...


Better HD Video Playback with CoreAVC

Been having problems playing back MP4 H.264 encoded videos for some time now on my old 3GHz Athlon PC. Even dropping frames don't seem to help much. The 720p videos still end up lagging so, not wanting to upgrade the entire PC, I was thinking of purchasing a more recent graphics cards that included HD video acceleration to give the system...


A Stroll Around Glasgow, Christmas 2008

Decided to take some photos of the Christmas festivities while out in town. Most of the ones you find here were taken over the weekend but because some of them didn't turn out so well, I had to use others I took earlier in the month. Prince's Square Located on Buchanan Street, Prince's Square is quite an exquisite place. I can't remember...


Animaxis is Hacked

Damn. Why would anyone want to hack a good retailer like Animaxis? Hope the damage isn't too great. I used to buy all my GetBackers Manga from them and the packages always arrived fast, clean and well packed unlike UPS. Then again, they do only offer EMS postage which is pretty expensive on its own. Not sure when I'll be putting in another...
