Tesco 8.4p Fake

Noticed this image circulating a fair bit today and immediately questioned its authenticity as that's too good of a mistake to not get noticed. So, as ya do, I had a quick properly look and from what I can see so far, it's a fake.

My reasons?

1) The 'dot' on the I within Tesco's font (which is actually named 'Tesco') does not have a square 'dot' [Purple arrow]. Note the other two lines [blue arrows] (one I wrote and the original label one) are circular.

Increment Games

I don't really play many games these days, mainly because none of the equipment I own is powerful enough to play the games and they're not as fun these days either where more time and effort have been put into the graphics than the game play itself (give me [PSX era] Spyro The Dragon, Crash Bandicoot or Tombi anyday!)

These days when I do play a game, it's usually some sort of boring - yet addictive - increment game (like Cookie Clicker or AdCap!). Simple games that you can spend about 5 minutes a day catching up... []

Leaked My Arse

Over the past couple of years I have been seeing the same term banded around prior to the official release date of an album, "leaked", and it bugs me because if you had an ounce of common sense, you would click that it's just a tired old marketing ploy.

How so? Well, most music fans get excited for when the release date of their favourite singer/bands album is published and then like to fire off a few hundred tweets and Facebook posts predicting how the next album will change their life forever, yadda yadda. What is... []

If you follow me on Twitter, you would know that I am heavily into my weather stuff and that I have running every six hours a few scripts that I have mashed together to generate visible weather maps for the temperature, wind speed, rain and pressure for the British Isles. Now when these maps have generated, they can be quite hefty. The last weigh-in I did for the maps was 73.2MB, which if you're wanting to quickly browse them and you're not on a 4G or decent WiFi connection end up loading quite slowly.

I did however come... []

Another Fail From The Daily Mail

Before I begin, I must say that I have no idea why I ended up on The Daily Mail website ("MailOnline") and I can't be bothered to look through my history either to see how and why, but whilst on there I tottled into their Science section for all articles to do with, well, Science and Technology. And I saw one article that caught my attention.

Download iPlayer Programmes

The BBC iPlayer is brilliant for catching up on anything you've missed on TV or Radio over the past month and it's very easy to navigate and use. However for me and I'm guessing quite a few other people too, if you've got a computer/laptop that's a couple of years old then when you're watching something on the iPlayer it lags, stutters and then goes on a mental buffering style loop whilst causing your computer to run at 100% CPU. It's highly annoying.

The iPlayer does however offer you some choice to watch the programmes in, so... []

Christmas Commericals 2015

Each year the major supermarkets try to out do each other when it comes to their Christmas commercials. There's that slight American Superbowl-style commercial feel to it, with who's going to have the bigger and best one.

Whilst having a little jolly online, I did come across a few keys as to what'll be included in a Christmas commercial for, as they put it, a "well known supermarket". Now myself and The Mother have both been trying to guess which company this one could be for. At first I thought maybe it could be ASDA or... []

Radio X

If you've been listening to The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X (formerly XFM) last week you would've heard that they had a competition on there where you could go and see Stereophonics play live. To win this competition all you had to do is be the lucky caller that they selected and also guess what Stereophonics song Welsh singer Aled Jones was covering of theirs - but in Welsh. They chose to use Aled Jones as the group themselves are Welsh... so it fits, obviously.

However the competition this week changes and I sent a tweet... []

Back To Normality

Summer is over, everything is returning back to normal (kids at school), no stupidly warm temperatures and no more daft half-faced sun tans. Also the one thing about this time of year is the new series of various shows that I like watching are starting to be aired once again. Can't beat sat in bed on a nice cold night time, munching on chocolate and watching cartoons.

At the time of writing this, South Park has aired twice, Family Guy, Modern Family and The Simpsons once. I'm still wondering when American Dad! is due to be aired... []
