    Goodbye Windows XP

    XP is still very widely used by many companies, you'd be surprised to find out many cash machines use xp too. heck some still use windows NT4! isn't the end of the world by any means.

    Princess Mononoke

    Didn't some western critic liken it culturaly to the Japanese equivalent of star wars, then get rebuked by a Japanese critic stating it was far more complex? can't seem to see it online. anyways, cracking film, the boar king turning evil really got me a bit. we've got a few of the ghibli films...

    Airsoft what is it?

    Airsoft what is it?

    actually that is factually correct. however, i didn't go into the entire UKARA registration scheme as i didn't want to be too long winded and bore people to death ;) a while back phoenix airsoft had a couple of armed response officers in looking around, they were after buying a pistol for their...

    Airsoft what is it?

    Airsofted for years, grown out of it now tbh, i moved onto bushcraft and didn't go back :D basically airsoft is a mil-sim game of tag similar to paintball but sometimes crossed with tactical situations to add realism. many people make many things out of it. for me it was about a good day out...

    Tents, two Man, budget of £100. Recommend me one!

    Best and worst boots you have owned.

    got to say, british army assault boots were the worst. achy feet regardless of overall distance even after i'd broke em in, but the damned souls always came away after a few miles no matter what. silly. best pair so far, would you believe a £33 pair of karrimor orkney 3 boots. got some arch...

    Russian poncho half tent. Can anyone confirm?

    plash-palatka tent coat is what you want to search. they've made these since ww2, they're ok, two make a decent tent. don't get ripped off by specialist dealers, these things sit in warehouses in russia for years and the right connections get things dirt cheap. give dmitry a shout over at...

    How many jackets are too many ?

    there's a very simple mathmatical formula for this. it is N+1 where N is the number of current jackets you own. this assures that no matter the number you own you will always purchase more. :)
