Not only are they… Read more →

GRRR! I’m vexed. I’ve just tried to repair my camcorder, a JVC GR DVL 150 with a spare part called a zoom unit that took me ages to track down and cost me £30. I broke the new piece in exactly the same place as the original piece broke. There is a flimsy join on the unit, about 1mm² (that… Read more →

Last night I finished reading one of best books I have ever read in my life. “Life of Pi” by Yann MartelEirene has also read it. It’s a book that you never want to finish. The fact that it is a true story makes the otherwise implausable plot adictive reading. I learned so much from that book – highly detaied… Read more →

NASA TV is one of my favorite sites on the web. In fact I’ve got a permanent link on this very page “Live TV from Space. Now that’s what the internet was made for!”. I’ve been watching live space missions via this for years now. Today it has gone to a new level – “Live TV from Mars.” Thanks to… Read more →

Just been to see The Return of the King (The final part of the Lord of the Rings trilogy). What an amazing film. The review on wigg.net (17th Dec 200 post) says it all – Go and see it if you have not done so. Now it’s a chill night in me thinks.

So I forgot to mention the fantastic photo taking gadget I got for Christmas.. The story of Photos/DragonDrop so far… First – there was the black and white watchcam(b/w gallery), then the colour watchcam (what is a watchcam?). (Colour gallery 1,2) Then, the phonecams followed by the hi end digital Nikon 5700. So now – I’ve got a set of… Read more →

Happy New Year! May this year be full of happiness and adventure. Still feeling rather flat after a superb NYE. A great night indeed. Went to a few bars – BRB was cool – Paul Quinlan and his friends were throwing a party upstairs with 20/20 sound, Tom Taylor, and a few others. Good deco – my fish tank DVD… Read more →
