One week until Japan!

In just one week, I'll be setting off on my next visit to Japan! But it'll take me a while to get there, as I'm going on a rather roundabout route to get there. As I'm taking my ten year old nephew with me, I need to fly to Edinburgh first to pick him up. ...

The experiment may continue…

After fiddling around with recording my voice a bit more over last week, I bit the bullet and ordered myself some recording equipment.

An Incomparable “Guardians” review

iOS Apps I missed

While I briefly “went Android” (don’t judge me, Apple fanboys) I found such a great selection of apps for my Samsung Note 3 that I barely noticed what I’d left behind. There were Android version of all my favourite and most-used apps: Twitter, Evernote, Dropbox, Instagram etc. But not everything was covered by the many ...
