Wallet

I don’t usually keep my business card there

I’ve been using the same wallet since I worked in Subway in Bolton and a special girl gave me my first one. I’ve had to fold and glue the elastic several times, repair the coin pouch, and just stop using slots.

I’ve been looking for a new one for a while, but none seem to have the charm or the right configuration of pouches. I think its quite a common thing from every man I’ve spoken to, finding that right wallet for you.

Buying a wallet is like buying a bed or sofa, you need to try before you buy.

However I got lucky. It is a good weight and size, and the coin pouch is hidden behind more slots. The only flaw is the zipper occasionally falls behind the cards, but it is a minor issue I can learn to live with. And it doesn’t have any sentimental value of being a gift.

Nexus 5 and giffgaff

Screenshot_2015-06-03-00-01-54I just upgraded my phone from the Nexus 4 to the Nexus 5. Unfortunately I lost a few numbers that I only realised after I formatted the old device. I’m sure I’ll be contacted by anyone missing within time.

I’m glad I sorted out Guild Wars 2 before I formatted, it is quite a hassle to remove the authenticator and requires the original 2 step, before I could add a new one.

The Nexus 5 supports 4G, however my current giffgaff goodybag is currently 3G. I’ve changed it so that the next goodybag will be a 4G package, however that is a month away. There is a way to cancel a goodybag, you need either less than £5 of credit, or less than 5MB remaining. I opted for the second one, and began to download a 500MB file, which will then be followed by another 500MB file until I have exhausted my goodybag.

Framed Pictures

KantoA while back I bought a few pictures from society6, and I finally got around to buying some frames for them to hang them up. The one above is Kanto from Pokémon, I contacted the creator @Melee_Ninja on twitter after seeing it.

I love Journey, and it makes a great frame. I went through several choices before I finally decided on this one.

IMG_20150426_162826These are my most recent additions, Orihime from Bleach, and Mikasa from Attack on Titan.

IMG_20150413_211203Finally, Lavos and Crono from Chrono Trigger, in an epic stand off. I was tempted to mount this poster, however with it being such a dark image already, I couldn’t find a mount colour that worked well with it.

The frame is a P70 on the website I linked.

Playstation 4 SSD

Screen Shot 2015-04-29 at 21.15.52Yesterday I bought an SSD for my PS4 after finding out from a friend at work that you can replace the hard drive. Having originally started on an Xbox 360, I assumed you wouldn’t be able to change it either, especially with the PS Vita memory card being the way it is.

After installing it, and loosening a few screws to fix my power button being incorrectly aligned. I began the processing or reinstalling everything.

While the load times of Bloodborne haven’t sped up by much, they are slightly better, and the system as a whole seems to run much more smoothly.
