My 8″ has recently gone to a very good home, so I can now concentrate on using the 4.5″. This has distinct advantages – my garden table is shaded from the surrounding light (but still has a good area of visible sky), and it can be carried with one hand, so if I want to throw it in the car and go somewhere else, it is easy.…

At the end of August I bought a Garmin Forerunner 235 watch, to replace my Fitbit. It was somewhat of an impulse buy (who, me?), but I am completely satisfied with it.…

I’ve just finished a 360° project shot at the Hereward Wargames Show. It’s an extensive interactive walkthrough of the show. It took a while for me to do it, as I needed to learn how the framing software – HoloBuilder – worked. There were a…

As some of you will know, I am overweight. As such, I have fat wrists. Actually, they don’t seem that big, in proportion to my arms, but they are big enough to cause the eternal watchstrap problem. When I was using my Fitbit Flex, it…

Over the last couple of days, I have been experimenting with adding a Premium package to LinkedIn – specifically their Sales Navigator package.

A friend recently commented that when I tell them about shows I am watching, they sound good, but then they forget which show it was. So I am going to compile a list of what I have enjoyed. I’ll probably be adding to this, as I encounter new shows.…

Two new games that I’ve recently bought, in my efforts to get more good short games into my collection.

They both look great – before they arrived, I was most looking forward to Rockband Manager, but having read the rules for 8 Minute Empire, I’m really looking forward to playing that too!…

Although I have had a Roberts Stream 93i radio for well over a year before buying one for my office, I am now using it a lot more for streaming from my NAS. I ran into a puzzle where it appeared to *sometimes* be ignoring…

A combination of changes at YouTube and Ricoh’s new video driver (UVC Blender) now means that it is straightforward to stream 360° video live. I’ve experimented a little with it, and am not yet sure if it is good enough for what I want to…
