New PSP Game

Available in Argos for £29.99 which is £10 cheaper than most other places, plus I had a voucher for 10% off so saved another £3.

Unfortunately I’m not allowed to play the game yet 🙁 I’ve got to wait until Christmas day.


Close Shave

I’d just like to say “LOOK WHERE YOU ARE F***ING GOING” to the stupid bitch that almost had me off my bicycle tonight. I was turning right on a mini roundabout when this stupid cow in a dark coloured Audi decided she had right of way, almost knocking me of. I think she must have […]

Its the time of year…

…To buy the ingredients and make your christmas cake. You can’t beat a home made christmas cake laced with brandy. Its even better if its had a month or more to soak it up and flavour the fruit. Its one of those events where the whole family joins in. The kids shout out the ingredients […]

Converting VHS tapes to DVD

I have about 15 old X-Files VHS tapes that I thought I’d like to transfer to DVD, plus a bunch of other tapes of old camcorder footage that I’d like to do something with. What I needed was some PCI based solution as at the time I didn’t have PC with USB 2. I found […]

Most of the testing of the theme is done locally on my local copy of this site, […]

NEC Bike Show 2005

On Saturday I visited the bike show at the NEC, Birmingham. Lots of nice bikes and babes. It was expensive, parking was £7, entry was £15, plus 200 miles worth of petrol to get there and back. As it was a saturday, the place was very busy. There were kids jumping in front of you […]

Train service compensation

After the cancelled trains on 27th October, I found a claim form on the First Great Western website detailing how to make a claim for disrupted travel. So, with form completed and ticket for the 27th I went into my local station ticket office and claimed my compensation. This worked out to be about 50% […]

Blind police

I was at a pedestrian crossing outside Liverpool st station in London, the lights changed to red for cars and green fo pedestrians, people started to walk across and some stupid arse in a silver bmw decided the red lights don’t apply to him. A dozen people had to jump out of the way of […]
