Terraria XNA fix – Audio

With Terraria’s big update, version 1.1, due to hit tomorrow I planned to get some time getting used to the controls and interface again.  I play it on my netbook mainly, as it runs pretty well and is suited for the small screen.  Unfortunately I was hit with an application error upon starting the game.

Tenda N-150R (W311R+) cable router and iPad / iPhone

Another slightly odd one that plagued me this weekend involved a router and an iPad. The Tenda N-150R cable router has been around for some time, and has been, in all fairness, a rock solid cheap router with a good stable wifi connection.  Up until now I’ve never seen a problem with it, but mix […]

Mmm….brains!

Okay, so there are a whole load of zombie games and addons out there but this is one I’m looking forward to.  Roll on 9th September! A bit tame compared to the heart-hitting, controversial announcement trailer that originally released.  The story reversed video crossed with that awesome musical score does it every time! *swallows hard*.

Logitech Harmony remotes

Remote controls. Exciting stuff eh? No come back it’s not that dull. Honest! With the amount of hardware these days whether it’s televisions, cable boxes, AV amps, sound systems, DVD/Bluray players, media centres, games consoles or even wall sockets chances are most of us have at least 2 remote controls sitting by the side of […]
