Bored, so I created something

December 24th, 2012

Probably does exist in Valve somewhere, this legendary gift in the inventory of all employees there…

Finally, the tool I’ve been dreaming about, someone has created it… http://www.flagfic.com/ A simple idea, convert fanfics from a lot of famous sites into ebook format, for you to download.

My time is running out…

Looks like I may need a new hard drive sooner rather than later…  

Heavy Rain PS3 impressions

March 2nd, 2010

You know, for all the stick Microsoft gets, illegal bundling of IE with Windows to abuse the monopoly position, huge numbers of patches and problems, they do help people with many solutions to fix things.

Great bargain today!

Bought a Samsung Story 1Tb external hard drive, looks lush, doesn’t it?   Review here – 90% All this for just €77 from Kotsovolos (think Dixons in Greece), a rare bargain from them, given they ten to rip people off.
