Theme Hospital on a Modern Windows PC

Been feeling like playing Bullfrog's classic "Theme Hospital". It really is a brilliant game despite being over 10 years old and I highly recommend you try it if you haven't already! You run a hospital trying to cure humorous fictional diseases like "Bloaty Head" by popping them like balloons, "Slack Tongue" or "Invisibility". Then...


World War Z in Glasgow ::

The production of World War Z has been underway in the city of Glasgow for the past few weeks. It's a US$30 million movie based on a novel of the same name and stars Brad Pitt. Apparently they chose Glasgow over the real Philadelphia because of the tax breaks here which means it would be cheaper to film. Naturally I went out during the...


Essential Android Apps

It's been a while since I upgraded to an Android phone and I thought I'd share some of the apps that I find invaluable. The downside I find with Android is there are fewer quality apps i.e. well designed user interface, few bugs and fulfils its goal well. And to top it off, they're usually buried beneath a huge range of rubbish and spam...


AMP3 Player’s Surprise Santa Sack 2010

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Readers! Up to anything this year? Me, just some quality gaming time.

However, it's not a bad thing...


Autumn Stroll, Edinburgh ::

It feels like a while since I wrote something for this blog. You will probably have noticed I haven't been writing for my blog much lately nor have I done any more translations. The reason behind that is that I am very much preoccupied with my full time job these days. That said, I still play games and watch the odd Anime show... Just not as...


Bus Signs ::

"No Smoking", "No Food or Drink" notices on public transport is pretty common but it seems they've added a new one to the collection here in Scotland... "Turn Your Music Down". I guess they must be getting a lot of complaints about people turning up their music too loud and people do. I guess they must be getting a lot of complaints about...

It's an interesting idea minus the privacy concerns... Every networking...

But while we're waiting for the official site to be up with more details, here's the next part of the novel translated in English, "Cosmonaut" which is told from Kanae's perspective.

Blog Up and Running Again

Finally my blog is back and running again after almost a whole week of being down. My web host wasn't much help as with my previous host - both blaming bad coding on my site or even more ridiculously, my computer. "Websites run off a server which in this case is located with your company. How can it be my computer?" No response from their...
