I know that I aint been too regular with posts lately, but when I noticed that the last post here was regarding travelling to Burma for my visa I realised how much Ive been lacking. Tomorrow were off to Burma again, lol, I cant really believe that the 3 month is up already, I hate this trip so much I wish the time between them could be longer.

Still raining

Its still raining here, daily we must get a couple of thousand gallon falling here, yet in six weeks time they will be complaining of water shortages. Its been especially bad due to the lack of sufficient drainage with widespread flooding throughout the island, luckily we live on a mountain, but I feel sorry for those that live in the valleys where the water gathers.

One of the most common problems that people come to me with is computers that just shut down and restart at odd moments. Now, there are a number of possible explanations for this, ranging from a PSU that is on the edge of a breakdown, a corrupt file-system, or an overheating board or CPU.

One came in the other day and after a bit of investigation I found the source of its over-heating problem.

Even although its been a busy week here I have still found time to surf around having a look at whats hot and keeping up with technology.

Something I came across a while back was a clever application called Photosynth from Microsoft, when I first read about it there was no opportunity to test it as it was still in a closed beta, now they have opened up a development version for public download. Photosynth lets you view images relating to a particular scene with each image linked to one another through dimensional geometry and relative positioning, ie - how far apart the real objects are.
