Muppets Revive Queen?

I'm not sure if the Muppets' version of Bohemian Rhapsody would win any awards, but it is damn funny:

More Muppet madness over on their YouTube channel

Google’s Answer To Privacy

The following video is absolutely hilarious.

However, there is, unfortunately, an underlying issue, which the video manages to highlight.
Nice to see parody is still alive and well in 2009!

Who Said Summers Were Quiet?

July / August are odd months ..

While for many they are associated with holiday and relaxation, for me they're the ramp up to the autumn season, so they're actually busier than other times of the year in many respects.

Over the last few weeks and those to come I've been working on a number of projects that will hopefully bear fruit in the next few weeks and months ..

One that has finally "gone live" is a new blog - New TLD Guide, which has been setup to help people come to grips with the new domain extensions... Hopefully people will engage with us and we'll all be able to learn something new.

I've also been working on more screencasts for the Blacknight video channel, but have been having massive issues with audio - it's probably something simple, but I haven't found a solution as yet ...

And then there's the biggest distraction of them all - my new Xbox 360 (thanks Microsoft!). I've become quite addicted to Call of Duty 4 ! (more on that at a later stage..)

I've also become quite addicted to Lee Child - I picked up one novel when I was down in Cork recently and have become totally hooked!

Clients Can Be Weird About Payments

Whether there's an "economic downturn" or not you'll always find people who simply don't "get" the concept of paying for stuff.

I mentioned this issue on Twitter earlier today and a couple of people sent me links to these absolutely hilarious videos. Apologies if the display is a bit odd - width may be a problem:

Of course if someone owes you money they really need to pay you .. Stewie's take on this is .. well .. em .. violent?

And the followup ...

Honest Advertising

I don't watch a lot of television partially because I hate the interruptions of adverts breaks.
Now if the ads on TV were anything like this I probably would start watching a lot more TV:

BBC iPlayer Now Available For Mac (and Linux!)

BBC's iPlayer labs have recently released a new version of their software that will work on both Mac and Linux.

Pity that other media companies, such as Sky, haven't followed suit yet.

Not everyone uses PCs Microsoft Windows!!


UPDATE: Since everyone has rightly pointed out, the usage of the word PCs in my original post was inaccurate. It has, instead, been replaced with the word "Windows"

Organising and Expanding HDMI Devices

Over the last couple of months I've acquired several digital audio and video devices and plan to get more. In an ideal world hooking them all up would be easy, but we don't live in an ideal world!

The main issue is that there simply aren't enough inputs and outputs available to allow you to daisy chain multiple HDMI capable devices together. You might be able to connect them together using other connection types, but that seems to defeat the object of having HDMI gear in the first place.

If you're confused by the terminology checkout the HDMI FAQ which explains in detail what it's capable of.

In any case the solution is to use a switch which is able to take in multiple HDMI sources and route them to the correct devices ie. amplifier, upscaler and TV


The device which seems to be the most adequate for the job is the HDMI switch from Octava


If you're based in Ireland there is a UK vendor who supplies them with the correct power supply etc., I ordered mine from them earlier today and it has already shipped!

Unfortunately the HDMI cables are not cheap, so you should shop around a bit. A few people have suggested Maplins, but I found some reasonably priced ones on Dabs as well.

Hopefully my new TV stand will arrive in the next couple of days, as the current one is way too small and trying to change any cables around is a truly painful experience.
