Incoming Gadget – Dell U3415W Ultrasharp Curved 34 Inch Monitor

A little while back when I wrote about upgrading the CPU in my desktop I alluded to another upgrade involving my monitor. I’ve had my fantastic 30 inch Apple Cinema HD monitor for six years.

Incoming Gadget – Lumix TZ40

Just a short update. My wife was after a camera with decent zoom but a still relatively slim. We have our Lumix FT3 tough camera but the zoom on that camera is fairly limited given that the optics are contained completely inside its body. Provided you can get close enough to a subject that’s not …

Panasonic Viera TH-P55VT60A Plasma 3D Television Unboxing

A while ago I decided it was time to upgrade from the Panasonic VT20A plasma television which I reviewed here and recently it arrived. However, I had to wait until last weekend to unbox it given that the process does end up taking up a lot of room and needed some help in filming it (I …

Graduation Day – Instant Photography

Well, it’s official – I have graduated and I’ve got the testamur to prove it (that is the bit of paper with my certification on it). I got to parade about in academic regalia for a few hours and have some photos taken of myself with my wife and parents to remember the occasion. Not …

Another Milestone – One Thousand Articles and Counting

It’s been a big week and a big year for the blog. Not too long ago the blog racked up 1000,000 visits and well over 100,000 pageviews in the process which was quite pleasing for something that started out as a way to keep me in the rhythm of writing in between university semesters and …
