DIY Dr Who Story

Published on :

There’s new Who on the TV tomorrow night — if you’re in the UK. In the Antipodes, however, we have to make do with what we can get, either illicitly via downloading, or by just plain waiting for the ABC to show it. Invariably out of sequence with Christmas (unless we’re hugely unlucky and they […]

Fy my soul?

Possibly my last online story for 2008; almost certainly my last pre-Christmas one, at the ever-reliable CNET.com.au Kogan 42-inch 1080p LCD TV: “Kogan’s 42-inch panel offers a budget entry point into 1080p Full HD TV, but there are compromises to deal with along the way.”

Christmas story…

Published on :

I got accused recently of being something of a killjoy when it came to Christmas, largely on the basis that I don’t do the whole pretend Santa thing with my kids. Silly me.. here I thought Christmas was to do with Christ, and not an advertising mascot at all. Shows what I know… I’ve also […]

Random Sunday musings…

In no particular order.. Bee in car! Bee in car! Apparently, my old London stomping grounds has just declared rules on how many kebab shops can be opened within the district, and that they can’t be too near any schools. Weird. Very weird. The Wife Of Distinction is addicted to Keflings. I’m a bit worried […]

You took a whole lotta loving for a handful of nothing…

Published on :

How would you measure that handful of nothing? Presumably not by weight. Why is it a handful, anyway?

You’ve got me so confused, and there’s words I could use…

Published on :

I’m doing an Alison-Moyet-Listening day today, as you might be able to tell. But hey, on the on the subject of words, I have plenty published today. First of all, at APCMag.com: Mobile Firefox coming to Nokia: “Ambitious plans will see Firefox mobile ported to Symbian Smartphones, possibly by as early as April next year.” […]

And everything I had to know, I heard it on my radio…

Published on :

More news, reviews and not-terribly idle speculation today. It’s enough to send one GaGa… First up, at PC Authority: Macworld 2009 rumour mill: Windkintosh? “Unofficial “official” WiFi drivers brings the Mac Netbook ever closer — albeit in a shady legal fashion.” And then a pair of reviews at Gadgetguy.com.au coming out of the recent Adelaide […]

Got to write a classic…

Published on :

Note: I am not, and very rarely have been in an attic. A couple of strikingly different articles today, both at PC Authority. First, hot from the pages of the print magazine, there’s this: Far Cry 2: “Far Cry 2 is an ugly game, simply because it all too accurately portrays a modern world conflict […]
