The Vulca S

I came across this car on Wired today. I’m not usually one to browse car websites or get excited about the latest cars being released but this vehicle is just beautiful. Built by Italian firm Faralli & Mazzanti, it boasts a top speed over 200mph, 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and …


Goodbye Encarta

Looks like wikipedia has finally killed off Encarta, Microsofts long serving digital Encyclopedia. I remember using Encarta a lot in the last few years of High School. Pre internet, it was a great place to find (borrow/steal) information for projects/essays that you had to complete, so I have fond memories …


Playstation 2 drops to $99.99

Sony today announced that the PlayStation 2 Will Be Available for Under $100. Although the PS2 is several years old, it is still a great system and there are dozens of A+ games available for it, most of which can be picked up on eBay at bargain prices. I already …

The hacker(s) was able to destroy the offsite backup, onsite backup and the main database. It’s a stark reminder how backing up your …


Street Fighter 4 Online

One of the first things I did arriving home was purchase Street Fighter 4. I have been a Street Fighter fan since I was a kid. I first started playing Street Fighter 2 religiously with my friends at lunchtime during High School when I was about 11 or 12. It …


Super Nintoaster

I’m a big fan of retro video games. I’m also a big fan of people who are good with electronics and have a little too much time on their hands. So I was intrigued to see that someone has put a Super Nintendo inside a toaster. It’s quite impressive that …


Opera Turbo

Before switching to FireFox a year or so ago, I used Opera for years. It was so much faster and practical than anything else out at the time, especially when you are working on the backend of websites all day long. The current stable release is 9.64 although you can …
