Halo 3

So, the day of all days is finally among us, it’s is almost the 26th of September and Halo 3 is going to be released. Not that myself or anyone else is waiting for it… In a company update on Microsoft today, Goldman Sachs analysts Sarah Friar and Frederick Grieb predicted that Microsoft will have […]

Akismet thinks I am spam…

Akismet currently thinks that my comments are spam. This occurs on other blogs and even my own! May I ask that everyone who I normally comment on regularly checks their Akismet spam to see if any of my comments ended up in there and then consequently de-spam me. Thank you. I have contacted support, […]

How to display your Xbox Live Gamercard on your blog

I’ve recently had quite a few people contact me to ask me how to add to their Xbox Live gamercard to the sidebar. It’s actually quite simple: 1) Go to and generate a code by entering your Gamertag. 2) Copy the HTML code. 3) Go to your blog Dashboard > Presentation > Widgets. 4) […]

Kid Nation

It’s autumn or fall as our friends from across the pond like to call it. That means that the new TV lineup is about to start with each station attempting to gather as many viewers as possible. Reality shows ranging from Big Brother to Survivor and Joe Millionaire have long been part of it and […]

A random story on Xbox Live, ft. Cat and Matt. [Pacman!]

Now everyone who knows me knows that I am quite crazy on occasion. So this is what happens when Matt and I send random messages on Xbox Live over a few days whilst playing other games: Cat: BOO :P Matt: Haha, you didn’t scaare mee! Oh, shit, what just moved in the other room??! Cat: […]

Republish your first post!

It’s that first post, writing it, proof reading it and publishing it that starts it all off. The first post on the first blog that is the beginning of the end as you only then realise just how much time you spend blogging! Often you’re not sure what you want the blog to be about. […]

How to display your Twitter status on your blog.

It all started in the support forum in a thread that had been going for months in which people were asking for wordpress to support one of the shiny Twitter status badges. However all the Twitter badges require flash which could pose a security risk and I agree with Automattic’s stance that they rather […]

Idk, my bff Rose.

Remember ‘Idk, my bff Jill’? This is the continuation, obviously the family still hasn’t learned a bit and switched their calls to Cingular. This was kindly linked to me by Matt. Thanks. I had to watch the clip several times to understand just how the abbreviations work, but showing this to a few friends they […]

ConsoleMonster podcast number 8

Time for another podcast, yes, the ConsoleMonster podcast number 8 [or 7, part 2] is out now. I’m not too sure if I like it, James seemed to have been on a little Vendetta and left a lot of stuff in that I thought was going to be removed! But, of course I’m only joking […]


BioShock was undoubtedly one of the most anticipated games of this year, mainly due to the teasing trailers and the developer walkthroughs demonstrating some novel ideas to the now rather lame first Person Shooter genre. After all there are only so many times you want to shoot people, throw grenades and punch them in the […]

ConsoleMonster Podcast number 7

As I have mentioned before I’m a moderator of at ConsoleMonster, a console gaming news and resource site. One of the things I’ve now been involved with is the podcast. The ConsoleMonster podcast has been around for a while, but this is the first time that I have taken part in it. Feel free to […]

Luciano Pavarotti, 1935 – 2007

Not many people I know like classical music and if they do they don’t like Opera. In fact, coming to think of it now, I can’t think of anyone that likes Opera. I’ve always thought that the 3 Tenors were amazing and I loved watching some of their performances, even though I was never able […]

Cancer Research UK

One of the things I am very passionate about is Cancer Research UK. It is a charity raising money to fund the research for the cure in cancer. I have been donating money towards the cause ever since I have been in the UK and even though it’s only been a small amount every month, […]

New house

As mentioned in a previous post I will be moving shortly and I spent most of the day looking at places to live on the internet, phoning up estate agents and looking at properties. And as of 6.30pm I’ve found a really nice house for a little bit more rent than I can afford , […]

My Life, the Universe, and Everything.

No, this is not going to be some post about the ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy‘, even though it’s a great film. This post is more about my life and what is happening with it or rather what’s not happening with it. Ever since I turned 16 I’ve been wondering as to what to […]
