A few days ago I finally managed to get Apples latest version of OSX, Mountain Lion installed. It went without a hitch, took roughly twenty minutes and here are my observations so far: 1) Parallels was broken on first boot, there is an update available to fix it but it didn’t work for me. I […]


Just over a week ago I sent the HTC Desire off to Steve ‘Chippy’ Paine and in return he sent me his Xperia X10. I’ve lived with the X10 as my main phone for the last week and wanted to post a mini review and small comparison with the HTC Desire. Hardware The first thing […]


I posted my HTC Desire review a couple of days ago and I wrote it in a positive manner because I have been very impressed with the device. Now though I wanted to follow it up with a few of the not so good points. Don’t get me wrong, none of the items below are […]

When Google announced Chrome, there was a fair amount of speculation that […]

Well, finally after moving over 300 GB’s of data, fighting with two different RAID controllers and a failing CD-ROM, I managed to get the above mention product installed on my old Pentium 4 PC. Installation was an interesting process to say the least, after discovering that my CD-ROM was failing I fitted a new one […]


Those who follow me on Twitter will already know that I plan to follow in the footsteps of Kevin C. Tofel from jkontherun and replace my Windows Server 2003 file server at home with Windows Home Server. I will go a little more in depth into the installation and my impressions in the coming week […]
