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like all those documentaries regarding the increasing popularity and insecured wireless networks will now be rendered out-of-date.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


Advanced MP3 Player's Surprise Santa Sack ::

Was browsing around looking for a new DAP because my current one's built-in battery is wearing down to only 2 hours. Then I found this - A "Santa Sack" filled with random goodies from Advanced MP3 Players' shop for £5 ( £7 including P&P). It's kind of like paying for a raffle ticket really and in this case, you have a chance to win a DAP, pair...


On the Way to a Smile Novel Translation Complete

Case of Shinra is now finished which means I have now completed translating the entire 264 page FFVII "On the Way to a Smile" light novel! Well, apart from the short Lifestream stories that Hitoshura was responsible for. And so, what is the moral of all those short stories or rather, what was the message Nojima was trying to get...


Europe Suggests Maximum Volume Limit on DAPs ::

A maximum volume limit of 85 decibels may soon be imposed on DAPs sold in Europe according to the BBC. However, users will be able to override the setting to bump it up to 100 decibels. Apparently, people are having hearing problems because they are turning up the volume too high in traffic to drown out the noise and some players go up to 120...
