Went to the Crusaders vs Hurricanes S14 game at Jade Stadium Friday night. Here are some piccies! Hope you are not afraid of heights! Was in the Paul Kelly stand thanks to some corporate box tickets.


Swicki's great for Community Sites

Have had a Swicki on my PalmHeads site for a while now. Its a great tool for allowing community contributions to your site.

My PalmHeads swicki has given me an insight into what people who visit my site want to see/know about.

You can even add your own search results if you think the results are crap!

Retro Computing at its nerdy best

As I guess is patently obvious, I am a bit of a nerd. How nerdy? Well, shameful as it is, I'm collecting computers that I either used or lusted over as a child. Sad but true!

The first computer I ever saw was this baby - the ZX81!

A whopping 1K of RAM! Woo hoo!

My pride & joy is my Tandy 102. You can read more about this fabulous portable computer on my Tandy page.

My most recent purchase is a 8 bitter I lusted over. The Commodore 64!

I use the C64 emulator FrodoPalm on my Palm! Such classic games like Thrust, Uridium, Dropzone & the like. Fabulous stuff! Check out my Tribule to Thrust & HHGTTG C64/Palm page on PalmHeads.

Hope this has brought back some pleasent memories for someone!


Z1 AM Micro Radio

Following on from the Sinclair A-Bike below, Sinclair Research also make this kick-arse minature AM radio. It comes with a few extra aerials as can be seen below.

Just fits in your ear! Its fantastic for listening to Radio Sport when you should be doing other stuff, like listening to your wife/girlfriend etc. Brilliant!

Sinclair A-Bike!

OK my 2nd post has got nothing todo with Palm's, Linux or Tandy's - lts about my newest purchase - the Sinclair A-Bike!

If you are committed to a folding bike & using public transport - the A-Bike is for you!

l love the thing! Don't expect it to be a speed demon, be great up hills etc. Think of it more as an alternative too walking.

Here is a piccie of it folded...

Here is a piccie of it unfolded ready to use!...

I am really enjoying the experience! Get a few strange looks but I'm used to that anyway! haha! :-)

Have read a few reviews where people criticize it. These people need to get real! You are never going to complete the Tour de France on one of these things. That's not what its designed for!
