Need For Speed Hot Pursuit


Got this game the other day and it's good fun but have a feeling it's going to get boring very quickly as online it's just the same old thing follow the road as a cop or racer and get to the finish line or as a cop trying to stop them "thats it"

What this game could have been if they had only updated Most Wanted which is one of my fav racers and put you in the hands of ever the racer or cop in a open world to have some fun not just a single road to follow which is a shame

So how this game has been given so many high scores in reviews i will never no as i many trade it in to get a copy of Most Wanted for my xbox and have some fun with the cops

It's a hard life being a fox in south london



It's a hard life being a fox in south london as for the last few days a fox has turned up in my back garden in Croydon to take a nap on my sun lounger

90 mins of hell + 5



It's always fun being a palace fan as we are ever up near the top or right down the bottom each season so it's heaven or hell when the last few games are played

well this season has been pretty bad as at one point we were fighting for a play-off place at the top only for the club to be deducted 10 points due to us going into administration so we went right down the bottom

so with 90 mins left to save the club from the drop i sat and watched the palace on tv on sunday in which we only needed a draw or win to stay up but like any other year we never do it the easy way



But thank god in the end we got the draw so stayed up

Remove white border around image on Google Blogger post



If like me you hate the white border you get every time you post an image to your Google Blog / Blogger there's a easy way to remove just by changing the sites HTML code which will only take a few seconds to change

So you have below which looks in a word "crap"



Well go into your Site layout and then Edit Html and scroll down till you find the part shown in image below, border:5px solid #fff; and just change the 5px to 0px and your done so just save and it's bye bye white border



PS if you like the border you can just edit the size by changing the number or even change the colour by changing the colour code ie the fff part which is the code for white border:0px solid #fff;

Moon



Didn't have a clue what this film was about before i watched other than one bloke played by Sam Rockwell worked alone on the moon for a mining company with only a robot called Gerty for company and just as his 3 year contract comes to an end and it's time to go home he starts to loose his mind

Well as i love my Sci-Fi and i needed a fix and this is film is based on the moon i was in there and had to watch but to my surprise this film is more of a psychological thriller so don't be put off if you think it's not your cup of tea as it's set on the moon and would be classed as Sci-Fi as you may enjoy



Me i think it was Bloody Brilliant and Sam Rockwell was Superb

Forza 3 Oval Tuning


Anyone got some tips on tuning cars for Oval Racing ie the Ford Fusion Stock Car as tuning a gear box is new to me

have a good tune for Sunset Speed Way which i did yesterday and gets me round in 41.883 seconds on a good day but having problems with the small ovals

just wondered the small ovals your car never get's near it's top speed so is it best to try and tune the gearbox to run at the lower speed ie tune it to max out at say 200mph not the 215 which it can do



Update after spending a few days tuning i now have my time down to 00:41,586 round sunset raceway

Update just got my speed down to 00:41,560 just want to get it down to 00:41,500 or below but not sure if it's possible

was talking to a few americans last night about tuning oval cars and they said once you get a good tune guard it with your life and don't even share it with your family lol

The mother of all updates lol as now have a Ford Fusion which can race round Sunset Raceway in 00:41,457 which is down to a great tune by "HDR andy pull 0" he say that the car can go a lot faster so if you after a great oval tune plus many others check his Forza 3 Storefront by searching for HDR

Removing Asus Laptop Harddrive



Think the hardrive on my Asus A4K Laptop has failed which from the pic's below is going to be a pain to get out as the heatsink is in the way of two screws

Removing Asus Laptop Harddrive

Removing Asus Laptop Harddrive

I'm wearing the Noob of the year hat as thanks to Memphis and Attu90 over at overclockers.co.uk they pointed out you give the cord a pull back and you can then remove the drive, you just also need to remove the small screw down the side which will then allow the harddrive to come out

Linksys by Cisco WAG320N-UK On It's Way



Just ordered a new router the Linksys by Cisco WAG320N-UK so hope to have some pic's and a review in a day or two

Got the router today so will have a play for a day or two



Little review as i'm a man of a few words "well the ones i can spell"

I got my Linksys by Cisco WAG320N-UK the other day after finding that my old Netgear 834g V3 wasn't cutting the mustard so as i had a little xmas money plus going to sell the Netgear it was time for a new one

In the box: A router plus the normal bit's ie filter, network cable and power supply

Have to say the power supply lead is a little bit on the short side as it's about half the length of the lead on my netgear which is a pain when you want to sort out placement

Design: Not sure if i like the look of the router as always liked the sq box type routers plus it looks like one of them posh multi media remotes rich people have on there coffee tables



But other than that it looks and feels like a well made bit of kit

Setup: Didn't have any problems setting up the router other than i couldn't remember my login name and password for my isp as it's been about 2 or 3 years since i've ever had to enter it on anything

Also just changed the wifi name and password over to my old settings so didn't have to change anything on PC, laptop xbox or wii and as soon as the router connected they all fired up and worked as they should

Only problem is the Linksys comes with a huge amonut of settings to play with under the bonnet which for normal use you don't have to touch but i'm one of the people who likes to have a play and the manual doesn't give you any explanation of how to use them with is a pain so thats a thumbs down


Extra Stuff: Love the USB connection at the back of router for a flash drive as now i can just send files to the router for every pc to access which so handy

also i was wondering if it could be setup so i could have access to files on the flash drive from wherever i am in the world (normally south london) which could come in handy but after reading the manual which doesn't help i don't have a clue but will find out

Info below if you want to do a manual setup of your Linksys by Cisco WAG320N-UK Router if like me your with Tiscali / Talk Talk

Just use settings in the pic below with your user name and password (click image to enlarge)

Ps under Network Address you will see from image i have changed the Static DNS 1 and 2 so i'm using OpenDNS you can just live blank if you want to just use your isp DNS
