If you follow me on Twitter or BBM Channels, then you may know that I recently transformed my DAC (Dev Alpha C) in to a Q10. The DAC internals are basically a BlackBerry Q10, for those who have one, you technically have a Q10. I already had a white Q10 and while I was happy with how the DAC looked and feel, I really preferred the Q10 from so decided to change the DAC housing.
As promised to some who have requested. Here is the shopping list and video walkthrough. The video does run a little over 20 minutes but it includes the DAC disassembly and Q10 reassembly. I have outlined below where to jump to for each section. Read More »
Animated GIFs are not something new but I never really took time to create many of my own. I’ve recently started to do so, especially with animated GIFs being supported in BBM Channels, so you may find many animated GIFs make their way onto this blog. You have been warned.
For me first animated GIF, I present to you Leonidas. Our cat who loves to open doors.
Movember isn’t normally something I take part in. For one, I can’t grow a moustache, being a female and all, however this year I shall be taking part. You may already that I write for the Number 1 BlackBerry dedicated site CrackBerry, which comes under the Mobile Nations network. This year, the Mobile Nations crew are coming together to raise money during Movember.
If haven’t heard about it before, Movember occurs annually during the month of November and guys give their razors and shavers a rest and grow a moustache. What for? To raise money for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
So why am I taking part if I can’t grow a moustache? I’m a Mo Sista who’s supporting my Mo Bro colleagues in growing their moustaches.
If you’d like to help me (and the rest of the Mobile Nations crew) in raising money for good causes, visit my page and donate some money. All my donations go towards the Mobile Nations network. You can also join up yourself and grow a moustache (if you’re a guy) and raise money too.
So, I’ve decided to set up some of my online presence and I will now be adding to my You Tube account more than I have been lately. I’m am starting off with some music videos. When I say that I don’t mean as in professionally made ones, I mean by making some home videos of my with my guitar and singing some of my favourite songs.
If you’re not yet subscribed to my You Tube account, check it out now, I’m guitardeejay on You Tube. I’ll be putting up a Music section where I shall share the You Tube videos on this website for those who prefer to get them via the existing RSS feed.
This website has been my personal blog for long time now. Going through different iterations in its time. If you have been following my blog the past few months you’ll know that I have ventured in to becoming an app developer, mainly for the BlackBerry Platform. I’ve continued to use this blog of both my personal posts and business posts, in regards to anything related to app development. However, in my aim to separate my personal thoughts from my upcoming projects I’ve decided to create another website purely for my app projects, as well as to make things a little tidy.
This sight will continue to be my personal blog where I share life experiences and personal thoughts. I will occasionally mention my projects on here but the main hub of things regarding my app development will go on the new website. The new website is currently in the works but I will announce it here once it launches.
I must say, I’ve immersed myself very much in this London 2012 Olympic Games. More than I have in any of the previous Olympics Games. Of course, one of the biggest reasons is because it is being held on home turf and while I’m a few hundred miles from the main action, I can say I’ve really got into the Olympic Spirit.
First thing I do in the morning is turn on the TV and flick through to the Red Button to pick an event to watch. I’ve been mixing it up, watching a lot of the different sporting events, even handball, which I had never watch a match of before. Growing up, I was very much a sporty person. Looking forward to P.E. lessons and sports day at the end of the year. I used to do pretty well in Athletics, always taking part in the 1500m, long jump and 100m hurdles but never really took it further than high school. I was more of a “I want to try everything” person. I’d play tennis during the summer. Started young doing karate (I now do ITF TaeKwon-Do). Even playing a bit of basketball, even though I was short. I just loved to do sports. I wasn’t too bad at football either. Because of this love for sport, I love to watch it, as most people probably do. As I grew older I didn’t do as much sport but still loved to watch it on TV whenever I could.
July 27th 2012. It was a Friday night that would me and family glued to the TV, with billions around the world as all eyes were on London as it kicked off the opening ceremony to the 30th Olympic Games.
Living up in Scotland means that I was not as fully aware of everything that was going on in preparation for the London Games but I certainly wasn’t going to miss it once it started. So, long before 9pm I was all set up to watch. I’m sure quite a lot of people watched the ceremony so I won’t go through a play-by-play. I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed the opening ceremony. It was truly British, with iconic British faces thrown in the mix. For one, it was awesome to see Mr. Bean take part in the ceremony. You got to love Mr. Bean. What about James Bond and the Queen? Our Queen certainly has a sense of humour, entering the stadium in style
