February Photowalk: Trim, Co. Meath

January 2, 2010 - 10:57 pm

Posted in Photography | 22 comments

A bit of input needed on this one so read below and share your thoughts. Idea is to experience the sights and sounds of Trim (which I’m reliably informed is a 45 minute drive from Dublin city for anyone that’s worried about it). This can be done either one of two ways. 1. Travel to [...]

When Apple products become affordable…

Back when I originally considered building a hackintosh, I based it on a rough spec of a mac pro. Very rough. It worked out significantly cheaper and didn’t seem like such a pain in the arse to get going. Idea was that I’d build it and have it for when my now 4 year old [...]

Why Fly Delta?

Posted in America, Diary of a Madman, Opinion | No comments

For a couple of reasons. First, because of a recommendation by a colleague of Julie. Best way to go apparently. Second, because they were not too far off about €90 cheaper than the Aer Lingus fare. KLM, who I’d always flown trans-Atlantic with in the past didn’t even get a look in. Their fare was [...]

Left mouse button fix for Acer Aspire One AOD250

September 21, 2009 - 5:55 pm

Posted in Opinion, Technology | 5 comments

Having googled extensively over the last couple of days and found nothing useful (but I did find several people with the same problem) I thought I’d come back and explain exactly how I sorted the problem, now that I’ve actually sorted it. First things first. I bought an Acer Aspire One (D250-1924) from B&H Photo [...]

Boss: “X piece of software needs to be updated on terminal server” Me: “I’ve never troubleshooted or even used that software before” Boss: “Ring programmer there and he’ll tell you what the story is” Me: Hangs up & sighs loudly knowing full well it’s the start of yet another one of those conversations. Me: “Eh, [...]

Before the fourth birthday of this blog rolls around next month, I thought I’d revisit an old project. A little over 2 years ago, I first launched Glassey Alley. It was to become a daily photoblog, an extension to this place. When technical problems arose, it quickly ran aground and thus, the end of glassey [...]

Another from Rocky Bay, this time practically right out of the camera. Slight boost in contrast, bit of sharpening and send to flickr. Nice to see that Claire finally buckled under the immense pressure and bought herself a 5D. Bad thing about that is, now she’ll be making the rest of us look even more [...]

Cut a Canyon

Water running towards the sea and cutting into the sand along the way. The ever wonderful yet little visited Rocky Bay in Cork. Went down the other day during the golden hour and felt immediately inspired. Such amazing light. All you’re going to be getting over the next week or so are Rocky Bay shots!

Back; Photos Soon!

Having returned from a short stint in the land of mystery, ghouls and ghosties (most people call it Edinburgh), I’m playing catch up again. Photos to process, college stuff to gain some sort of an understanding of and exams to do in a couple of weeks. It was a nice break, but damned if I [...]
