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 ^^;...


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...


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like all those documentaries regarding the increasing popularity and insecured wireless networks will now be rendered out-of-date.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...


The Cold Freeze, UK 2010 ::

The news has been about nothing but the hazardous snowy conditions all over the UK just now as well as other countries within the northern hemisphere. Flights suspended, cars becoming stranded on the motorway because engines stopping, people slipping on the hardened icy snow, water pipes bursting etc. Oh yes, walking uphill on...


Acid Throwing Suspect in Hong Kong Held ::

Looks like they may have finally caught the man who has been throwing acid into the streets of Mong Kok from high buildings, one of the most busiest places in Hong Kong. I just happened to be there the day before it happened once. Hope this is the real culprit and there are no more such attacks....


RealD 3D Glasses and Cineworld Cinema Waterworks ::

Decided to go see Avatar for my first "RealD 3D" movie experience despite the nasty "big freeze" we're having here in the UK. I think it was around -5C when we were out. It ended up being quite eventful... First we had a guy snoring (at least I think he was...) midway through the adverts which got some giggles from the audience. Then about 20...


New Residents in the Garden? ::

New Year's morning and it looks like we might have a Blue Tit couple moving in. It perched outside the bird house for quite a while while its (presumably) other half was scouting the area. Usually we don't see these birds around until spring then they fly in and out until the late evening. It's pretty sad to learn they only have an average...


A Look Back At 2009 ::

Less than 1 hour before it's 2010. Snow's still lying around pretty thick but I think people are gathered in the city for the big count down. A lovely clear moonlit night for the fireworks! Today, I thought I'd spend the last post of 2009 looking back at the various things I've written about on this site. First off, we'll talk briefly about...
