For many years I had a girlfriend who self harmed. Self harm is a complicated subject and there are many reasons why people do it and I've never quite understood it. I always told her it was silly and stupid that she would cut herself over something which could be emotionally understood and rational..

Tonight for the first time I think understand why she used to do it. People set people off in different ways but its is the burning that you feel inside because what they have done is all wrong and the only way you can get rid of the anger is to cut it out of your skin and in the incision they is a release. Nothing is going to help, no emotional talk through no sit down and a cup of tea and we can make it alright its only that razor against your skin. Never suicidal but just enough to let the pain away.

To her I say sorry I now see you pain, hope your happier now.Love kev

View Article  BBC to launch new Dirac codec at IBC

Well this could be a intresting stand to see at IBC

On its joint stand with NuMedia Technology, the BBC is set to show the latest addition to the Dirac family of open source video compression codecs. The Pro 270 application of Dirac allows the transmission of HDTV signals using the cable and infrastructure already used for standard definition TV. Which is quite sexy if I say so myself....

This requires more compression of HDTV signals than Dirac Pro 1.5, but the new Dirac Pro has the flexibility to achieve this with very little loss of quality. Broadcasters that employ the Pro 270 will have the ability to transform their programme output to HD quickly.

Other reasons to use it include the fact that 1080P50 HD islands can be connected between sites over existing links. And because Dirac is Open Source, the wider industry can use the technology, add to it, and develop other applications. This will be helped by the fact that Dirac is license free too.

Oh dear another battery manufacture has problems this time its not Sony and only 46 Million batteries this time....

Nokia has identified that in very rare cases the affected batteries could potentially experience over heating initiated by a short circuit while charging, causing the battery to dislodge. Nokia is working closely with relevant local authorities to investigate this situation.

Nokia has several suppliers for BL-5C batteries that have collectively produced more than 300 million BL-5C batteries. This advisory applies only to the 46 million batteries manufactured by Matsushita between December 2005 and November 2006. There have been approximately 100 incidents of over heating reported globally.

View Article  Another Cybershot recall
Sony the makers of the world famous exploding batteries have sent out another product recall. This time its the Cyber-shot DSC-T5, I posted back in Nov 06 about the LCD recall.

This time Sony has announced a recall of another 350,000 digital cameras. But there's no need to reach for your fire extinguisher, because this time the recall is focused on the metal casing of one model that has the potential to cut or scratch users.Someone used the wrong type of glue and they are falling apart at the seams.

The problems surround the Cyber-shot DSC-T5 camera with serial numbers between 3500001 and 3574100, which was released in 2005.

How to return you DSC-T5 to Sony is listed here:
