I’m currently in the process of putting as much of the extraneous possessions I’ve acquired over the years on to eBay. One of these items is my old 32″ television, which we definitely no longer need as we have an LG 37-incher in the living room and no real room for any other TVs anywhere […]
It looks as if Alex and I will be moving house very shortly, we’ve put an application in for a new house to rent and assuming that’s all approved we should be in within a month. The new house doesn’t have quite as big a driveway as the one we’re in at the moment, but […]
The latest addition to my car history is this rather lovely 2005 BMW M5. With 507bhp and a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds, this is something of a monster. I’ll be writing a full review of the car once I’ve become more familiar with it and it’s functions, but for now have some photos. The […]
This software was originally released in April 2004, shortly after the release of Eidos’ Thief: Deadly Shadows, the long-awaited (but much maligned) sequel to Thief: The Dark Project and Thief 2: The Metal Age.
The idea was to provide an easy to use GUI to help players tweak their game settings in ways that the in-game settings menus wouldn’t allow.
At present, in my bedroom, the temperature is 26ºC. We currently have a winter-weight duvet cover on the bed. Earlier today, quite by coincidence, I found out that my BMI of 18 is lower than 99% of males between the age of 15-29 in the United Kingdom. By the morning, unless the temperature drops, I […]
It’s been a long time coming (four years almost to the day, in fact) but the final instalment of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy is here at last.
Christopher Nolan’s film-making chops find themselves under even greater scrutiny this time around – we’ve all been waiting for this epic conclusion since we saw Batman ride away into the light on the Batpod, but has he delivered?
Note: This is a pretty long review, but should be almost completely spoiler-free.
In September 2007, I underwent LASIK laser eye surgery with Ultralase in Birmingham. As a relatively active member of the Something Awful forums, I wrote an account of my experiences on the day and posted it in the General Bullshit subforum on September 19th, two days after the operation.
This weekend saw the marriage between Jenny – one of Alex’s friends from Aberystwyth University – and her partner Arni. The wedding took place at Steventon Church (which, funnily enough, is in Steventon in Oxfordshire) with the reception afterwards being held at the Village Hall in nearby Eynsham. The following day, a get-together and barbecue […]
Ever since I were knee ‘igh to a grasshopper, I’ve wanted to keep tarantulas as pets. For some inexplicable reason, my Mum wouldn’t allow it. I dunno, apparently they freaked her out or something, can’t imagine why.
But anyway, in 2008, I decided to bite the bullet and bought a spiderling (that’s a baby spider to the layman) Mexican Red-knee tarantula (Latin name brachypelma smithi) from The Spider Shop.
