  • Origami - Neutron Star Edition

    I was really keen on getting a Samsung Q1 Ultramobile (Origami) until I learned a little more about the specs from Samsung's UK site: Damn. I was kinda hoping for an ultra mobile PC I didn't need to use a semi-trailer to haul around! :) (from...
  • So How's The 360?

    Fantastic. Incidentally - we were excited when we saw Big W had the premium pack for 628 on the launch Thursday, but Dick Smiths at Macquarie currently have the premium pack for 615 - 35 bucks off! My preorder was $650, but I got it at 20 past 12 on...

  • Xbox 360 Night for the Aussie Contingent

  • It's an Origami for mi

    Currently on couch, but perched in front of laptop. Tried blogging via Community Server from hastily-borrowed i-mate Jasjar while reclined, but it didn't pan out, and I don't like the keyboard on it. I'll let that post go. So as long as someone...
  • CoComment, eh? Phwoooaaaar, eh? Phwoooooaaaaaar, eh? Eh eh? Eh? (wink)

    Right. Been busy. Forced myself to take 1/2 hour to do something other than type, whether it was play games or read feeds. Feeds won, so I'm now catching up on the 7387 unread items I have in RssBandit. Jay mentioned coComment earlier, and it sounded...
  • Blog Chipolatas

    So much to do, so little time. Moving RSS out of Outlook and into RssBandit means I spend less time reading my feeds each day, but my workload is high enough that I don't usually get a chance to check it. Sigh. Anyway, rather than talk about what I...
