Well guys, I do much of my Blogging over on my totally awesome website, Jensonb.co.uk. Once the Giant Bomb upgrade is done in a few months, I'll be able to feed those posts to you automagically on this awesome website, Giant Bomb. Till then, linking manually will suffice. And boy do I have a humdinger for you today. Three, yes three, posts, all ready for your reading pleasure.
Let's start with the one which will interest you all the most...
Buffalo out of Twenty Seven
As you’re no doubt aware, I’m a member (Since launch) and huge fan of the website Giant Bomb (Dot) Com, to the point that I’m one of the 3 “usual suspects” behind the Giant Bomb Community Podcast, Bomb Should Have A Face.Last night BSHAF (As we call it for short) hosted a little town hall for the Giant Bomb guys to discuss some changes they’re planning to make to the site. So Giant Bomb Favourite Sons Jeff Gerstmann and David Snider appeared on the show and we discussed the new site with them and the Giant Bomb IRC (Of which I am an H-Op).

Upgrades are Good
So in my last post, I explored my options for a new Mac on which to do my video production over the next year or so as I wait on getting a MacBook Pro until I go to university. It had come down to a kind of standoff as I couldn’t make up my mind between an iMac I currently have no room for and a MacBook Precision Aluminum Unibody I couldn’t justify the cost of.You might remember I dismissed the £719 MacBook White as too expensive for the power it gave. I described it as “utterly pedestrian”, and I stand by that assessment of the Late 2008 MacBook White. But earlier this week, Apple quietly updated the machine, and now things aren’t quite the same.
