And by way of examples of the new camera's performance, I'll start with a shot of one bun reapplying her head following thorough cleaning and ear maintenance, and finish with a brief (fifty seconds) video clip of similar. It is adorable, even allowing for the inevitable swaying of the camera, being held freehand during a stiff wind. (It'd been a rainy day, on and off, hence her somewhat damp appearance)


September 13 2008 sees Acorn's 30th anniversary, and to celebrate, quite a number of the original figures will be attending a 400-strong party in Cherry Hinton. ^_^ (About half the tickets had gone by last weekend)

I think I should take Red out and about at some point.. maybe EuroFurence next year, given that sounds like a fun event, and of a distinctly different nature to FC et al. Possibly the Bunny Jam?

Shiny furries in the future! What's not to love? Beautifully drawn, heavily manga-influenced: Xen.

You can download Big Finish's audio drama UNIT: The Coup, starring the (former, now General =:) Brigadier, for free. Dashed decent. ^_^ (But you need to register first? Ew)

A Best of Craigslist warning regarding fat-free Pringles. If you know what the warning they attach to "Olean" is, you know the low level of humor (as long as you're not the guy in question) involved. ^_^

Seemed like a good time to get around to updating the PSP's firmware, and went for the latest homebrewed edition, 4.01M33-2, with added 1.50 goodness.

Plus points about the Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus: case design makes it very easy to grip; quiet; backup/encryption/locking software supplied for OS X and Windows (including 64-bit). Bad point: the busy LED is bright white, and flashes when active. Also, the busy LED is bright white, and flashes when active. Now I realise that, technically speaking, that's only one flaw, but I thought it was such a big one it was worth mentioning twice.

Yay! Season 2 of the Sarah Jane Adventures starts airing in the UK on Monday, September 29. ^_^
