If gaming isn’t a part of your life, you’re doing it wrong.


  • Are you saying Burns night or Boo-urns?

    We were a little late, but this year we celebrated Burn’s night, Haggis and all. Burn’s night is celebrated on the birthday of the famous Scottish poet, Robert Burns, the 25th of January. Traditional Scottish food is accompanied by poems, bagpipe music, and a series of addresses. While we waited for the haggis and accompaniments […]

  • Out of the Ashes

    Welcome to Phoenix One, the new Ordinary Decent Laptop Eighteen days after the Great Fire of Plymouth (not to be confused with the fire of 1902), I am typing on my brand new Dell Inspiron 16, and what a computer it is. The specifications roughly matched my old laptop, but were updated, and the only […]

  • The Aftermath

    The smouldering remains of my Inspiron 15 7000 are making their way to the Republic of Ireland. After the drama of last week, things have settled down considerably.

It’s slightly overdue, I know, but I was too busy enjoying myself with friends, food, films and Firefly of course! And various other bits and pieces – revision, computer tweaking and all the rest. It’s […]

  • Another year, another post

    Hello hello, and might I add a happy new year to you! The end of 2011 is nigh, and I’m sitting in my grandparent’s house with my family, bringing in the new year. As of yet, I’m without a resolution for this coming year, but there’s still some time to think on it. I don’t […]

  • Stuff going on!

    Great movie mistakes, not so great after all. Robert Webb, how could you do this? It just makes you come across as a terribly petty person, pointing out every tiny inconsistency in films. If you’ve put that much effort into finding flaws with the film you really aren’t watching it right. Try to sit back […]
