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. ^_^

Squee at the grooming bunny! In 720p HD! (50s, 20MB)

*sigh* I miss Red Dwarf. Though it did go horribly wrong in the last couple of seasons, so perhaps it was for the best that the film never got made.

Squee at the grooming bunny!

What, we have to be told to do that? *squees* Lovely to see - I just wish it would stop raining long enough for me to go out rabbiteering. *sigh*
Did you encounter this nugget recently, I wonder? ^_^ Would be nice to hear from official sources, but that does sound quite definitive, nonetheless.

*grin* It's that quick hand-wringing that absolutely gets me. ^_^

Mm, it's been rather wet lately.. yesterday was quite a surprise, really. Mostly raining, on and off, pausing long enough for a nice lunchtime stroll, only to find one bun happily engaged in some reasonably relaxed washing. (Keeping one's fur soft and lustrous takes effort, after all) No such luck today, though - coming down fairly solidly. =:P It'll be quite a nuisance once summer time ends, meaning I won't be out of the office before sunset. Still, I suppose there's always the weekends.
