End of 2012

Aha, it’s the end of 2012. Here’s a recap of the highlights of the year. Firstly, I’ve finished my second year of architectural education at the University of Sydney. This has led to me forming some more baked opinions about the architecture industry. I am now searching for architecture jobs and will likely begin work […]

Testdriving Skydrive

For those unfamiliar with Microsoft’s answer to cloud storage, [Microsoft Windows Live] SkyDrive offers a website accessible online file manager for free. When I first tested Skydrive many years back, it only offered 5GB storage and had a clunky interface that was a horror to work with. Imagine my reaction when I heard the bozos […]

Reviewing the statistics for WIPUP 27.06.10a.

I decided to delay the statistics-review post for WIPUP 27.06.10a because a recent update to the dashboard now shows view statistics on a daily basis instead of a weekly basis – the results were quite surprising: As you can see WIPUP is clearly one of our most active projects, with quite a decent kudos:subscriptions:updates ratio […]

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) – packed with goodies.

Just because I use Gentoo doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a little Just Work ™ once in a while, and from what they’d like people to believe, Ubuntu apparently does just that. You’d be a fool to argue that Ubuntu doesn’t play a vital part of the Linux ecosphere, and so despite my customiserish nature […]

Site review: BestWindowsMobileApps

This is a sponsored review by the owner of the website but all opinions are that of my own. Windows Mobile 6.5.3 and below is widely regarded by many tech fads as a to-be-deprecated technology in favour of other smartphone OSes and possibly the upcoming Windows Mobile 7 OS, revealed just over a week ago. […]

Book recommendation: Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov

Being of the current generation, I wasn’t around in the 1950s when Isaac Asimov created the Foundation Trilogy – namely three books: Foundation, Foundation and Empire, and Second Foundation. Isaac Asimov is one of those pioneers in the sci-fi genre and for good reason too as I learned later. Being a passive book reader, when […]

Sodexo – food for the masses.

Sodexo (formerly Sodexho Alliance) is a French multinational corporation, one of the largest food services and facilities management companies in the world, with 355,000 employees, representing 130 nationalities, present on 30,600 sites in 80 countries. For fiscal year 2008 (ending August 2008) revenues reached 13.6 billion euros, with a market capitalization of 5.6 billion euros. […]

Google Wave Review

I have a Google Wave account. I’ve had it for a couple weeks now and have had time to familiarise myself with it enough to write a review. In a nutshell, Google Wave is a pimped combination of email, instant messaging, and live document collaboration. It tries to combine these three functions into an interface […]

ADOM: Game review.

I’m not a gamer. I don’t mind playing games, they’re fun. However I don’t see any sense in wasting a good majority of my day playing a game. Games attract me because of the intellect and flexibility within them, not so much the advance in graphics. Replay-value is probably what I weigh as most important […]

Windows Mobile 6.5 Review

You know that nervous feeling you get just before you install Linux for the first time? Especially if you’re installing something like Gentoo – all that weird scrolling of funny commands scream “no more warranty for you“? It’s quite the same when you flash your first ROM – the equivalent of installing an OS on […]

Windows 7 Review

To those who have been keeping up with all the Windows 7 buzz, this post will seem very “behind the times”. Well, I don’t care :) To those who are just casual browsers of the thinkMoult blog, this might interest you. (Well, it was also in my drafts folder for a long time, and I […]

Blender 3D: Architecture, Buildings and Scenery – Review

I recently received a book on Blender 3D architecture, Buildings and Scenery from the folks over at Packt Publishing. The author is Allan Brito, those who frequent BlenderNation might have heard his name a few times. I must say, it’s a good book, and I would have no trouble recommending it to folks interested in […]

Conquering Konqueror

Perhaps I don’t need to say it again, but I am a KDE person. This means Kopete, Konsole, Kontact (with KMail, Akregator, Calendar, Todo, etc), Dolphin, Plasma, KWin … KDE. However, funnily enough, one of my greatest it-looks-scary-lets-stay-away-from-it is Konqueror. For those that don’t know, Konqueror is KDE’s ultimate penknife applications. It’s used as a […]
