By | What I am | No Comments

This weeks “What I am” is a variety of stuff again that I’ve saved across the last few days.

Reading In China they are now recommending their Government officials not to use…

Storage Wars

By | Photography, Technology | No Comments

This post has nothing to do with that program on Discovery TV but everything to do with digital storage. Sandisk have just recently launched a monster SD Card – a huge 512GB. I think it’s going to sell for about €800 but that’s some huge storage for personal devices. More details on it are here – http://www.sandisk.com/products/memory-cards/sd/extremepro-sdxc-sdhc-uhs-3/ and http://youtu.be/B8AabCY9rLA Also I’ve just…

Building your own NAS

By | Technology | No Comments

I’ve suffered a few hard drive crashes over the years and I had almost given up using organised storage for my data. I have scattered around the house various bits of tech, two desktops, two laptops, a netbook, an iPad, iPhone, Android Phone and now a NAS.  The main driver behind the NAS is the fact I’ve got data scattered…

I spotted this video and it just amazed me to think in this day and age what people are still struggling for and how much we take for granted in the western world. The actual title of the video is HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE which translates as Shamed be he who thinks evil of it. It’s a strong message.
