What a stroke of luck. After pretty much giving up hope of ever reclaiming this web address I managed to contact the current owner and made him an offer to buy it back.
For those not in the know, TechMadeEasy.co.uk is a website that I set up in late 2009 while living in Budapest. It seems strange as I type this to consider that 2009 was over a decade ago now, but I digress.
A while back I was promised a P101 by Antec, the first review sample I would have received since deciding to blog again. Problem is they never actually sent it, I had a meeting scheduled with their PR guy which was cancelled, and then silence.
I’d already commited to the idea of using it for a home server build, so I’d have to go out and buy it myself… It better be good.
A while back I was in need of a new case for my Unicorn Orgy build. I’d tried cramming all the hardware into a Corsair Carbide Series case but it was all a bit cheap and plain looking.
I took myself off to Nehru Place where I found the excellent Deep Cool Matrexx 55 case for 4000 INR (around £45). Frankly, at that price, this case is an absolute bargain, and a quick look at several online retailers shows that you can expect to pay the same or slightly more depending on where you live.
I’ve never bought in to the idea that you need to spend an awful lot of money to get a usable experience with a mouse. Not to say that the uber-expensive offerings from Logitech or Corsair aren’t good products, they just don’t offer the best bang for the buck.
My preference has always been to spend less than £20 on a mouse, something I’ve managed to achieve with room to spare with the Redragon Gainer M610 mouse.
As much as I love a good mechanical keyboard, my wife (or more specifically, her hearing) does not. There’s no denying that even though a good mechanical keyboard is the ultimate typing experience they can generate an ungodly amount of noise.
So, I was despatched to my local IT market with an instruction to buy a quieter keyboard. OK, love, don’t have to tell me twice.
