OK, so I have just seen this, “Harlem Shake” for the first time after hearing EVERYBODY at school talking about and it is so random! Here is a YouTube video of it if you haven’t seen it! I may even make a, “Harlem Shake” video soon, it’s that funny and random!
I have recently discovered the fun game of Geo-caching! It is so cool. What people do is they “hide” a “cache” in random places (usually of significance) and then publish the GPS Co-Ordinates for other people to find them.
There are several apps to help you accomplish this, or you can do it the old fashioned way and use a GPS unit. The “Cache” contains a log book and sometimes other random objects people have placed in there. The rule is, to take something you must place something of equal or greater value. There is also something called a “trackable” which is basically a metal tag with a unique number on it. You then plug the number into the Cache’s webpage and then it will update the database to say have had it! You can then see where it’s been on a map and who has had it. On my most recent cache that I found (in Mackay while I was on holiday) a man from Germany had come to Australia Geo-Caching, at the same cache I was at. What are those chances! He gave me a trackable that is on it’s way to New Zealand from Bulgaria I was the 76th person to have it. Some guy who lived in Bulgaria had a friend who moved to New Zealand and their aim was to get the cache to him. How cool is that! So now you’ve heard how fun it is, head over to geocaching.com and sign up, then with a GPS enabled smart phone download a geocaching app. (My favourite two for android are “c:geo” (free LINK) or “CacheSense” ($5.00 LINK) Cache Sense also has a fully functioning demo version for free for 30 days. There is also an official app which is $10 (LINK) but no demo so I haven’t been able to look at. Unfortunately with the free Geo Caching account there is a maximum cache download limit per 24 hours (3). If you upgrade to premium (LINK) you have no limits and its $10 for 1 month or $30 for a year.
Also in the online logs they use a few “shortcuts.” TFTC means, “Thanks for the cache” and FTF means, “First to find” there are few other ones but they are easy enough to work out.
Overall it is a very fun game and definitely worth checking out!

Seeing all these viral videos on YouTube and then wondering how much money they generate from all the views and ads! I am quite jealous, a cool one though, is, http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=6ntDYjS0Y3w

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 9 years to get that many views.

I have an awesome new camera, the Sony TX-20. Some people would probably think Sony + Camera = Rubbish but this little camera is so cool! I am going to be doing a few more reviews now that I have some more stuff.
Here is a picture:
Not only is it stylish with the slide down cover and the 3″ high-resolution touch screen (yep a touch screen) but it is also really functional. It shoots full HD 1080i video and you can take snapshots at the same time you are recording. With its stereo microphones at the front you also get pretty decent sound quality too. A lot of other reviews say that it gets quite slippery but I don’t agree, it is very easy to hold and has a wrist strap for added comfort. The lithium-ion battery that come with it lasts a lot longer than other models of cameras taking up to 250 shots or 125 min of Full HD video.
Another cool feature is that you tap on the touch screen where you want it to focus. It focuses really quickly and quite effectively too. Although the touchscreen doesn’t work under water you can still take photos and movies from the buttons on top. With the included cable you can also output whatever is on the camera’s screen directly to a T.V with AV input. If you buy an optional accessory (mini HDMI to HDMI cord) you can plug it into the camera’s built-in mini HDMI port and show your photos on a compatible screen. The standard SD, SDHC and SDXC cards are supported but the TX-20 being a Sony product you can also use most Sony memory sticks. The built-in iSweep Panorama and 3D iSweep Panorama are really good but sometimes have trouble stitching the photos together. The camera also has two main photo modes, Intelligent Auto and Superior auto. These two modes automatically select the best mode and settings. There are to many specs and features to list here so a link to the Sony website is here.
The image quality is slightly above average and is really good for web and general use but not so much if you take photography as a hobby. There is an exception to what I just said though, when the camera has switched to Macro mode it takes extremely high quality photos. The full HD video is very high quality and this is the main reason I have bought this camera. You can use the camera at a depth of 5 metres or higher underwater. It is shock proof up to 1.5 metres and freeze proof down to -10 degrees Celsius. Being dust proof is also a nice feature.
This is a great camera and a must have if going on holiday or somewhere like the beach. It takes decent photos and really high quality videos. At $220 from teds it is a steal. I will upload some videos at the highest resolution tomorrow and some of my photos. I am going to Wet ‘N’ Wild and plan on taking it down some water slides (secretly though ). So in conclusion I would definitely recommend this camera to anyone looking for really High Quality videos and pretty decent photos.
We have just had a massive storm! But apparently that was just the “warm up.” There is meant to be a massive one tonight, here is the radar picture from last night! (when we had it) The yellow clump right next to us soon turned very dark red. We had lots of wind, higher then 80 km/h (50 miles) and some places got 30mm of rain in less than half an hour!

Just finished the 40 hour famine, I was going to do no eating and no talking but I got really sick and my parents made me eat because you can’t have panadol on an empty stomach. So I just ended up not talking for the 40 hours. It was fun, I was wrighting notes like they were going out of fashion!
Guess what it is……. A minecraft wooden sword I designed on the computer and got cut out and etched. Hope you all like it!
