Bad train week

So autumn is here with a splash, the trains into London via Reading aservices by First Great Western are starting to suffer. What is it going to be like when the leaves start to fall off the trees in greater numbers? What will happen when it gets colder?

Its nothing to look forward to, its […]

Warning to Orange.co.uk users

If you are a user of orange.co.uk and decide to change your monthly plan then don’t bother using the website. You might think its been changed, but it won’t be. The site is a complete load of crap. It doesn’t work. I changed my plan, waited until the next billing period only to find it […]

Tool wall

PSP Multiplayer

I’m currently trying out an interesting bit of software that is supposed to enable a PSP to play multiplayer games over the internet when the game was originally intended to work with a number of PSP near each other. The ida is that there is a piece of software that listens for game requests from […]

Playstation 2 Power Supply recall

Looks like the quality controls at Sony have not been up to scratch in 2004. They have found a fault in power supply units manufactured between August and December 2004. Of the 2.3 million units sold thy have had about 4 problems in the US and 4 in Europe/Asia. As we have 2 of these […]
