Easykard? Avoid it like the plague...

Thinking of getting one of those pre-paid cards from Easykard? In a nutshell, don't!

About a year or so back, I decided I wanted to be a little more secure online and get a limited credit card for use online, and Easykard appeared to offer the ideal service.

Easykard is one of those credit cards where you pre-load the card with funds then use it as you like. On the face of it, a pretty decent service, one which I thought would be ideal for my "online" card, something to use for those times where I want to be extra super careful and really limit the risk of fraud.

New laptop is some kind of masochist

Recently, my employer provided me with a shiny new laptop so that I can be more mobile and work from home. It's fantastic, dual cores, lots of rams, fast interwebs etc. a really nice piece of kit.

But... It has a sinister dark side; It’s a masochist!

Traditionally, computers don’t like to be dropped or beaten up; heck my first experience with a PC (a Viglen in 1986) required the user to run the “park” utility from DOS before you even moved it. My new laptop however is very different. It comes with a utility which shows how much of a beating it’s taking.

2nd Hair Transplant

Prior to beginning surgery, Dr Rogers and I go over what work will be done today. Part of this meeting involves marking out areas which will be used as a plan for the new hairline.

This is the area from where the donor strip will be cut.

V (2009) TV Series Review

What is it about?
V is about a race of aliens who come to Earth promising benevolence but have far more sinister intentions.

V is the “re-imagining” of the 1983 mini-series which I was huge fan of, though I always felt left down by the follow up show which aired in 1984.

Is it any good?
When I heard V was being remade I was quite excited, science fiction shows have been of a generally high standard recently and a V remake has a lot of potential.
