Chronotrigger DS (So happy I could cry)

I saw on Joystiq a site with a countdown clock for a project called ctds… it can only be Chronotrigger on the DS! I almost wept for joy (Thats really sad isn’t it).

Especially after square shut down Chrono Resurrection which looked quite promising. I’ve been meaning to drag out my SNES for months to play chronotrigger, now it’s looking like I might be playing it on my way to work.

Cant wait…

Pacman Cake

My friend Jennie made me this amazing pacman cake for my birthday.

It’s a banana cake with yummy butter icing.

The Ghosts were banana, whitechocholate and cherry cupcakes covered in sugar icing. Everyone felt guilty eating them they looked so cute.

Of course that didn’t stop Annabel…

Shee looks a bit manic in that photo…

Partial Move

I’m not actually moving blog, but as of… “soon”, I’ll hopefully be starting a more professional Blog as Bang Equals or !=.

I aim to talk about professional issues in software development and to cover other stuff as well such as interface and game design.

Heres hoping it works out.

I’ve only just registered the domain so it will take some time to go live, and for me to install everything, and get it all running. But in the mean time I am banding about ideas for articles.

Despite it being live for a good few months now, I’m experiencing an issue with wordpress that I’ve not had the time to resolve. It seems to just point back to here. Oh well I’ll try and resolve it soon, it’s not like I have any readers to piss off by not posting anything.

Fixed it! not sure how I set the siteurl and the home entires in the options database to be which I’d tried previously but for some reason hadn’t worked…

Oh well it’s workign now.

Japanese Assessment

I’ve had to hand in my final assessment for my Japanese evening class. We were to write a letter to a travel agent asking information on festivals:

I ran my letter through Babelfish, suffice it to say that my confidence in online translation and my own abbilities to formulate sentences in Japanese has been shattered. Continue reading “Japanese Assessment”


No this is not a confused post, Yesterday I watched Unknown, this was a complete impulse viewing as Annabel was working behind the bar at the cinema and I had some time to kill, I was pleasantly surprised.

Five guys wake up in an abandoned warehouse with no memory of who they are or why they are there, it’s obvious that some of them have been held hostage and some were the hostage takers, aside from that, they know nothing. As with most amnesia films this film goes through the characters discovering who they are. Continue reading “Unknown”


I just got back from the cinema having watched Sunshine the latest film by Danny Boyle the director of cult films Trainspotting and 28 Days later two of the best films featuring heroine addiction and zombies respectively.

I went in not expecting to be amazed but expecting to be entertained none the less, I was not disappointed. The premise of the film is that some time in the future The Sun is dying (No not that Sun, shame…). The cast are the crew of the second mission to try to reignite The Sun with a nuclear explosive the size of Manhattan Island, the first mission having been a mysterious failure 7 years previously.

Technically Second Post

This site has been active in this incarnation for a couple of months now, however for some reason I have not had the time to put anyhing up. This will change, as soon my army or repugnant monkey slaves will decend on the net like an infestation and destroy all hope the something has for survival.

I honsestly dont know what I am talking about, I had intended to update this on a regular basis, and i have a lot of things I want to post if only to remind myself of them at some point. The odd cool thing I find here and there, the real reason people blog. I am not the ranty panty type who reams out their personal life online but I do enjoy finding cool things online and putting them some place I can remember them.

Unfortunately my last blog somehow became the residence of a bunch of spammers, thier efforts ended up in my webhosting company shutting down my webspace. I am back now and in effect as it were, feel the wrath of my keyboard as I continue to type utter gibberish about nothing in particular.

I am in fact a master gibberer so now I will stop, fingers crossed next time I post it will be actual content and not idle rambling. perchance it will be content which is spiced up with idle ramblings… but it wont just be filler. Truth be told the only reason I am making this post is so that google has something to parse for adsense…
