Valkyria Chronicles, From PS3 Game to Anime

After watching Valkyria Chronicles, it makes me want to play the first game on the PS3 even more. The PSP sequel was a really enjoyable game. That's also why I got interested in this show partly because of the sequel's excellent presentation and wondered if the VC universe continues on with the story. Good to see that it indeed does and...


Nokia 5800 Hints and Tips, Easy Playlists and Asian Script Support

There's a lot of things that can be improved on the Nokia 5800 to make things easier for the user. That said, they can be fixed with a little bit of patience. You can always download some third party software to help yourself out but after spending much time experimenting with the phone and its software, here are some of the things I managed...


Migrating to a New Host ::

20th February 2010, 23:35 GMT Update: My blog's migrated a number of times. Starting off from free blog services to someone's own private server and now my own hosting space and domain. Well, now I'm about to move again to a different host that offers a cheaper and better deal than the current one - And hopefully a more reliable service...


Increased Solar Activity May Disrupt GPS Signals ::

Just when I was planning to replace my current phone with a GPS enabled one too so that I can go adventuring for better photo shoot locations. Apparently the expected increase in solar activity over the next few years will send powerful magnetic waves over the earth. According to the BBC News, these waves will end up confusing the simple...


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...


Chocolate with a Message ::

"Love me... Unwrap me... Eat me..."? That's quite a cheeky message isn't it...? Oh wait, it should be in this order! "Unwrap me... Eat me... Love me..." Er, yeah... Thanks for pointing out the obvious. Apart from the "love me" part. This French "Extra Dark Chocolate" tastes like water ^^;...


J-Drama, The Woman Who Never Compromises

Decided to watch some J-drama again for a change so that I don't end up just picking up Anime slang and miss out vocabulary that will actually be useful in everyday life - Should I ever end up in Japan. I think the last show I watched was Densha Otoko which was a long time ago. Anyway, after looking through the lists of shows that were airing...


Local Library Computer and Printer Access ::

Been a long time since I visited my local library - Why use it when you're in uni or have access to the internet at home? Well, maybe for novels or if you would prefer to have tangible books before you. Dropped in again after I needed something urgent printed off. My old inkjet printer's head failed again just when I needed it. It was working...


Avatar and The RealD 3D Cinema Experience ::

Yes, yes. I know this site is feeling like a diary lately but nothing on the gaming and Anime side of things of late quite pique my interests. Anyway, found the time to go back and claim my free viewing compensation at Cineworld after the waterworks incident just over a week ago. Luckily it wasn't too late ^^; Avatar isn't a bad movie but...


Wireless Network Insecurities, WPA Hacked in 1 Minute ::

It looks like all those documentaries regarding the increasing popularity and insecured wireless networks will now be rendered out-of-date. Ah, the thrill and speeding advance of technology... There has been plenty of programmes advicing people to upgrade from the "flawed" WEP security to WPA but even WPA can now be hacked just as...
