Adieu Amplify!

Another one bites the dust, eh?  Bellow is an email I got from amplify the other day announcing closure of their service.  I have to say that this is something that doesn't really affect me.  I noticed that a number of people that I follow on my professional (outward facing) twitter account had amplify accounts so I decided to give it a try.  Used it for a couple of stories

Restore fail?

Last Friday I got my new iMac at work (yay!) and I was busy transferring stuff from my old iMac that I have to give back to my old department soon. Due to this setup I didn't spend much time looking into what came withy iMac, in other words what came in the box.When I looked more closely yesterday I saw that the recovery disc was missing, or rather a recovery disk was not included. A quick web search

(my) Mac Mini is EOL'd...

With the announcement of Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8 for those keeping score) there is another list coming out of supported machines.  Even though I haven't updated my Mac Mini (mid-2007) to Lion yet, I was wondering if it would run Mountain Lion.  It seems like my mid-2007 Mac Mini will no longer supported by this new OS, but that is quite OK in my book.  Even two operating systems

Syndicate on the xbox - return of a classic!

Classic SyndicateThis past week I came across a mention of the game Syndicate for the xbox 360 (and PS3 and PC obviously).  Back in the day,  I remember playing the original on my friend's Amiga (and not liking it much), but as soon as I got my own computer (a Performa running System 7.5.3) and I got over the learning curve of the game I went on to complete it.  As far as I

File dis-organization

I was reading Rebecca's post the other day about file dis-organization and her journey to figure out what to do with a problem that plagues most academics that I know: that of finding interesting articles, downloading them for potential future reading, and then losing track of things (or not knowing where things are).  I have to say that I've struggled with the same problem as well over the past

Assassin's Creed: Revelations - 50% sync

This past weekend I got more gaming in that other weekends (mostly because most of my other work is done...except I've been procrastinating on one project...more on that later).  I ended up going a but past the 50% sync on Assassin's Creed Revelations having retrieved 2 (out of 5) Masayf Discs, cleaned up all of the templar dens (and getting all of my assassin recruits trained to some level)

Τελευταία εβδομάδα στο ΙΤ

Την πρωτοχρονιά του 2011, όταν επέστρεψα στην δουλειά (βιβλιοθήκη) μετά τις γιορτές έμαθα πως μου έδιναν μετάθεση στο τμήμα ΙΤ, χωρίς να με ρωτήσουν με μετέθεσαν Το καλό είναι πως το τμήμα ήταν πολύ γαμάτο οπότε για μένα ήταν

Castle defense games...when did they become so popular?

  I was browsing the free iPad app of the day and I came across this game called Gem Keeper which became free for today. As with many iOS apps that look vaguely compeling and have just become free,  I decided to download it and give it a try; and I have to say that it is quite addicting.  The question that comes to mind of course is when did castle defense games become so popular?
