Dim Sum Fun

By Friends No Comments

We had a great time at The Tsang’s making Dimsum on Sat afternoon. It was great with us all cooking and preparing lots of different food stuffs. The calamari was probably the most challenging so well done to The Carolyn and Mr Tsang.

The great things was that it all tasted really good. I was afraid i wouldn’t like any of it but it was all very good indeed.

Good food & Good company – what more does one need?

Oh yeah – Jesus, Of course!

Skip the crud with DVDs

By Film, Techie No Comments

Having just finished season 5 of Lost and then seeing a an article today i was reminded about the Lost Season 5 DVD’s that LoveFilm sent us.

Each DVD would take about 3 days to get to the main menu without the ability to skip the various trailers and ads for blu-ray. Coupled with the fact that our DVD player is a bit flakey and so it takes a while between each clip that the thing tries to play.

You can imagine the frustration.

All i wanna do is watch the film/episode/feature

i dont wanna have to troll through the various crud offerings.

So how do you get straight to the point?

Well there is a cheeky lil Remote control trick that should work for most DVDs.

Just hit stop twice then the play button! This should bring you straight to the main feature without all the faffing about! WOO!

Thanks to for this tip
