… is blinkin’ awesome! Will‘s been telling me to get a headset for my Xbox & get online with it for a while now, so last Thursday I eventually got myself a cheap one from Game, only to discover that I also needed the communicator pack which it plugs into. So Saturday & took it back & got the official headset & WAS THAT A GOOD MOVE OR WHAT?!

The only thing I’ve played online previous to this was the first Halo on my PC. That work fine. You log on, find a game that’s just started & join in. But I still believe that PCs are for working consoles are for games. Halo2 on my Xbox is seamless in connectivity, I was up & running in minutes. All I had to do was plug it into my router, enter my free 2 month subscription (& credit card details for when that expires) connect the headset & I was blastin’ gamer scum from all around the world!

File under?

I was having a conversation about ordering your CD collection last night & all the posible solutions. But, as appears to be a problem for some people to understand the importance of ordering your music, let me explain… You have 2 CDs. If you CD you pick up is not the CD you are looking … Continue reading “File under?”

I was having a conversation about ordering your CD collection last night & all the posible solutions. But, as appears to be a problem for some people to understand the importance of ordering your music, let me explain…

You have 2 CDs. If you CD you pick up is not the CD you are looking for, the chances are, it will be the next one.
Now imagine you have over 100 CDs… GET IT?!

OK, back to ordering. There’s many ways to order your collection & so you need to find the format which suits you. So here’s a few to think about…

So many games, such little time

Not like many others out there, I’ve NOT been playing Halo 2 over the weekend. Because I haven’t got it yet. I do want to though… I do, I DO, I DOOOOO! For now then I’ve been playing GTA: San Andreas. Which is very very good. But what’s going on with all the good games … Continue reading “So many games, such little time”

Halo 2Not like many others out there, I’ve NOT been playing Halo 2 over the weekend. Because I haven’t got it yet. I do want to though… I do, I DO, I DOOOOO!

For now then I’ve been playing GTA: San Andreas. Which is very very good. But what’s going on with all the good games coming out at once. OK, maybe because Crimbo is just around the corner, but come on! Use simple gamers don’t have enough hours in the day to be playing all these games.

Other good games to play with mince pie in hand:

…hmmm.. they’re all sequels.

Jacks of London

I was about to talk about my cousin’s barber shop when my Mum pointed out to me that it was on the BCC’s Working Lunch on Friday. It’s a great place to get your hair cut. If you’re sick of all these trendy Unisex like Toni & Guy, then get down to Jacks of London … Continue reading “Jacks of London”

I was about to talk about my cousin’s barber shop when my Mum pointed out to me that it was on the BCC’s Working Lunch on Friday.

It’s a great place to get your hair cut. If you’re sick of all these trendy Unisex like Toni & Guy, then get down to Jacks of London right next to Wimbledon station. You get to sit in a chesterfield & watch football on the plasma screen whilst you wait -or- you can browse the internet or listen to music. AND they give you a free beer.

The brainfire award for “best use of the internet” this month goes Jacks of London for their queue watch webcam. Now you can time your lunch time visit perfectly.

The hand is OK

My hand & myself were discharged from hospital (as an outpatient) today. This is great news for the both of us. I’ve been told to refrain from any strenuous exercise or anything that could put excess weight on my hand – which is fine with me, PlayStation here I come! I can certainly hold a … Continue reading “The hand is OK”

I’ve been told to refrain from any strenuous exercise or anything that could put excess weight on my hand – which is fine with me, PlayStation here I come! I can certainly hold a whole pint, but not necessarily my drink.

Drinks with Andrew

Andrew invited me out for a good feed on Tuesday. Got some top grub down my Gregory at the Gourmet Pizza Company on Gabriel’s Wharf. It was great to talk full geekyness to someone else who can appreciate it & reciprocate with binary speak. I really need to make sure I make a regular thing … Continue reading “Drinks with Andrew”

Check you out checking me outAndrew invited me out for a good feed on Tuesday. Got some top grub down my Gregory at the Gourmet Pizza Company on Gabriel’s Wharf. It was great to talk full geekyness to someone else who can appreciate it & reciprocate with binary speak. I really need to make sure I make a regular thing of it. Andrew always manages to discover a decent eatery to take me to, like The Marylebone Kitchen.

I haven’t been able to blog it until now because the next 2 days all my energy was focused on my ‘New Media Strategy Day’ which took place today at The Royal Garden Hotel, in Kensington. It’s so tiring listening to presentations all day. Although I do find it exciting to take part in the plans for the future our company.

Then Friday, everything stopped because the eagerly awaited Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was released. I narrowly managed to get a copy (one of the last remaining 8 in Hammersmith at 12:30pm). I’ve been looking forward to this game for a long time & now, in fact, I think I’m gonna go play it.
