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...


A Stroll About London for A Day

Been meaning to put up these photos ever since I got back from London where Makoto Shinkai appeared for a live interview at BFI. I had decided we would go down by an overnight train and also went for the London Pass so that we could do a bit of sight seeing while we were there. The pack includes a map, guide book, a travel pass for getting around...


A Bit of Clearing Out

I'm kind of running out of room to store the new stuff I buy so I decided to do a bit of clearing out. There's so much stuff I won't be using again in the future again. Just clogging up my room. As the saying goes - "If the old doesn't go, the new doesn't come." Look at all these cover discs I've accumulated from magazines over the years! At the...


A Stroll About Glasgow University at Night ::

Took these photos around Glasgow University one night about two weeks ago. There was supposed to be an employer's presentation on there but it was cancelled so having set out time already, I decided to go along to the area anyway to test out how well my camera fairs in dimly lit outdoor conditions. Outside the main university building...


Dancing Stormtrooper in the Metro Newspaper

Look at what I came across while I was reading the free Metro Newspaper on the bus this morning. Danny Choo really is appearing in a lot of media lately only this time, someone's uploaded one of his Dance Trooper videos onto the newspaper's video website and it's been featured. The uploader's making cash from the views too and I dont...


A Change of Header Images for Autumn 2008

As I mentioned earlier this week, I've been using images from 5 Centimeters per Second in the header since May so I felt like it was time for a change. I had actually prepared some more images from 5cm that had an autumn-ish feeling to them because I planned to have something different for each season but,  I've decided to use photos Ive...


A Stroll About in Autumn

Well, we are almost through Autumn as the nights lengthens and the day shortens. With all the current coursework and research I find myself having less time to watch as much Anime or enjoy games as I used to. Been spending weekends expanding my skills and building some sample work ready for employers to see. Seems they're more...
