Slime is down!

15 April 2014 - 08:11 PM

Basically, I've cooked the fan in my laptop. Because I essentially have no CPU cooling, I can't do anything CPU intensive for fear of damaging anymore interior workings. I should be taking it to PC world on Thursday, so I may not be on for a little while, until the fan is fixed or a replacement fan is found.

 

Guess I can always use that MineChat app :P 


Name Changing

24 March 2014 - 07:50 PM

My first topic in a while :P

 

You may have heard, but in the next few Minecraft updates, eventually we will be able to change our usernames. This is quite cool, as people who have been stuck with a silly name for a few years can finally change it to something more akin to their liking.

I was wondering if anyone here would change their name given the chance, and if so what to?

 

A few of you may know the origins of my name, as I've probably mentioned it a few times. At the time of the creation of my Minecraft account, I was (and still am) a massive Beatles fan. Having been on a school trip to Berlin the month before my account's creation, I had purchased a copy of the White Album, by the Beatles. On it is a track called 'The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill'. Since I hadn't had the cd for very long at the time, I was still in the stage where it's all that you listen to. On the track, a character called Captain Marvel is mentioned. I misheard this as Captain Marbles, and made the account. Since I discovered that I misheard the name, it's always bugged me... in the future I may change my name to something shorter like Marbles or something :)


Away for the weekend...

12 December 2013 - 09:14 PM

Greetings all :)

 

Tomorrow, I am going on a school trip to CERN. For those of you who do not know, CERN is where the Large Hadron Collider is located, in Geneva, Switzerland. It's all full of science, so it should be rather fun and exciting.

Basically it's a big circle in which atoms whiz around, and eventually they smash into each other. The scientists then look at the pieces.

If you want an idea of the size of the big circle, here is picture from the Internets...

The circumference is 27 km (17 miles)

I'll be away for 3 days, returning on Sunday afternoon/evening. Might post some photos...

 

Cheers - Nick :)


Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!!

09 November 2013 - 09:52 PM

Greetings! You may or may not be aware that Doctor Who, a long running UK sci-fi show, is approaching it's 50th anniversary! On the 23rd of November, a special episode is going to commemorate the momentous occasion. 

This episode is being shown pretty much worldwide in theatres, so if you want to see it at a cinema there's a website here.

Today 2 trailers have been released, and they look awesome!

 

Trailer 1: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=Mkq8pnvsnQg

Anyone else going to be watching? I've got tickets for a showing in Lancaster :P

Not sure if this was in the previous snapshot, but the graphics are a lot smoother when you look at them further away. It makes the game look a lot smoother :)
