Make it the future now damnit!

So CES has kicked off. There are some very interesting toys coming off the production lines this year. I am quite interested in the plethora of Slates/ Tablets which are being released in particular. I have been a big supporter for Tablet PC’s for quite a while. I loved my Compaq TC1100 to death, literally. It gave me four years of dedicated service, but died eventually due to faulty design which lead to a cracked motherboard (right through the on-board video card) twas a very sad day when it failed to boot for the last time.

I have been eagerly waiting for the Asus T101H to drop as it appeared to be the perfect solution for my needs (To have a device which i could watch video on, surf the web, and do some word processing on, and use as an e-reader) for my daily train trips to and from work.  Since it got pushed back 12 months I am hoping that they will have done a fair bit of revision and given it a bit more grunt.

Will have to see what if anything they say about it I guess. The Microsoft tablet and the Apple iSlate will not grab my interest too much I predict because of limitations in design and their application and DRM ecosystem’s.

As it is Thursday there has been a Horrible Cosplay Thursday update. Please enjoy, or cry. But remember to take any shards of your broken minds with you on the way out.

Hopefully I’ll actually write something in the next few days to release to you guys. I have an idea for a short story which is always a great start i find. Its just a matter of fleshing it out a bit.

Highlight between the spoiler tags to see the secret message.


It will be Sci Fi and have direct links the the game EvE-Online.


Anyway, that’s enough from me now. I’m off to bed. Off to work nice and early in the morning.

FUCK I need to win lotto, I don’t think i can hack being a working stiff for the next 30-40 years!


Belated Christmas Present.

Well it’s boxing day here but still technically Christmas Day in the US and the UK. So it still counts!


I have put together a couple of special Cosplay pages for Christmas. So please go and open these little presents I have made for you all. I hope you enjoy.

Special Horrible Cosplay Christmas Edition ‘09

Special Cosplay Done Right Christmas Edition ‘09

Have a safe and Happy New Year.


And on the 8th day, the Lord said. Let there be Cosplay. Horrible Cosplay.

I have just got finished setting up a new section of the site, which you will find under the Nerdvana tab to the left and above of this post.

Please welcome Horrible Cosplay Thursday!!!

Quite obviously it deals with a passion/sickness of mine. Horrible Cosplay. Its something I know I share with a few of you. I will be doing my best to bring you the worst the Internet has to offer every Thursday. If you don’t leave you computer with a slightly sickened feeling then I shant have achieved my goal.

The site is very much still a work in progress, so I am spending a fair amount of time reading and searching for lame WordPress threads on how to do stuff. One thing has become crystal clear during all this. To all intents and purposes I have no fucking idea what I am doing. The annoyance that is currently bugging me big time is that when you roll your mouse over a link from one of the main tabs at the top of the page, it turns the link white, making it effectively fucking invisible. It seems there will be no other way for me to resolve this than to code some sort of CSS patch into the theme being used for the page.

Me and coding are a very fucking bad idea. But hey enjoy the new section!!!
