‘Tip of the day’, for most of this week

I had this plan for doing a tip of the day, as I have this week come across some small but useful things to share with the world. So here they are on the Saturday. Tuesday: In Windows 7, Right-click on a scrollbar and it'll give you a context menu....

Why XBMC rocks! (via postie)

Bookmark this category Xbmc is, at least as I'm concerned, the only media centre choice for the discerning geek. Recently I upgraded my 'cube' machine and patched appletv to the latest 10.0 version 'Dharma'. The biggest difference, that I had heard rumours of for a while, is that the OSX/appletv...

Tron Legacy in 3D @ the Imax (via postie)

Bookmark this category I'd read a couple of reviews of the film, notably from Wired and Total Film, who saw this long-awaited sequel for the sequel to the original ground-breaking film as what it was - more and better, orat least as as good from what I remember having my...

Burn After Reading (via postie)

Bookmark this category I'd forgotten that this was actually a Coen brothers film, until about 10 minutes in when it became obvious that it was. A tale of confusion, adultery and the dream of a better body. John Malkovich has turned into a Great English Actor, who happens to have...

So...Just had a chat with the union rep about the bullying stuff that wenton at work.It would appear that me actually leaving the premises, for whateverreason, wasn't such a good idea.According to somewhere in the staff handbook, there are procedures inplace, such as contacting higher management or going to see...

More updates soon…

Obviously there hasn't been much activity on here of late.Even though I have had a lot to write about - my Palm Centro is full of things that I have listed out to make entries for...
