Television Tuesdays: Survivors

Survivors is a typical BBC show - six episodes long. It's sort of like 28 days later, but without the zombies ;-)The whole premise of the show is that a disease has wiped out most of the British population (and presumably most of the world), but a certain number of "survivors" got the disease and survived it. What we don't know is if this is man made - like a nation attacking another nation, or an

Amiga reborn!

I was catching up on news the other day, listening to the Engadget podcast, and I heard a reference to the eee Keyboard (or eeek! keyboard - OK bad pun). Anyway. I saw this and it reminded me of those all-in-one Amiga and Atari computer of the mid-to-late nineties. You remember the ones, the Amiga 500 and the Amiga 1200 that you just plugged into your television and off you went.Those were the days...

"Dear AIG, I quit!" - a reaction

I saw the headline. My initial response: "Boo Hoo buddy!"Then I read the article.OK, I have a little more sympathy for you, but I still have a difficult time going that extra mile to really, I mean really, feel bad for you, oh former AIG employee.I do agree that your boss was a weasel. Any stand up person would have had the guts to come out and say "no bonuses until we weather this out", but no, that

Video Game Friday: Snow Brothers (arcade)

One of the games that happily took my 50 drachma coins back in the day was Snow Brothers. The game controls somewhat like bubble bobble in that you have a character (a snowman) going around a static screen and you attack firebreathing monsters with little boomerangs made of snow. Throw enough of them on an enemy and you make them into a snowball that you can roll onto other enemies.The end goal, if

In search of a blog platform

In the past I've experimented with many blogging platforms. I've used blogger for a long time, and wordpress too! I've experiemented with LiveJournal which isn't really my cup of tea, and recently I've tried Vox, which is nice but can't really import my posts from other platforms.I've been looking to consolidate some of my blogs where I don't post as frequently with my main CA blog (what you are reading

Television Tuesdays: Rush

I wasn't sure about this series when I first stated watching it but I have been convinced that it is good! It doesn't get a high score on IMDB - I don't know why!This series has an interesting start. It wasn't picked up in 2004 when it was first shot, but because of the great writer strikes of 2007 in the US, the australian television execs gave it a second look and they gave it a go. Hey, if americans
