Mens Casio Sports Leisure Alarm Chronograph Watch W-96H-1AVES With Grey Dial
06 Nov, 2017
The ultimate Ronseal watch - does what it says on the tin.
Does everything it is meant to do without fuss or bother. Easy to use, easy to read, comfortable and while not stylish, doesn't look as though you're wearing a carbunkle. Stopwatch, alarm and dual time all for £17, with information about date and year displayed all the time - useful for klutzes like me. Two nifty features: 1) When using the alarm as a short timer, the current time is displayed while you set the alarm. Useful if, like me, what one really needs is a countdown timer on the wrist. 2) when you are returning the watch to 'standard display' mode there is a different tone to indicate where you are while scrolling through. Trivial, but useful. If you want a watch that does pretty much all you want on a budget, go for it.
Psion Series 5mx 16mb Palmtop Computer Boxed only used once
22 Jun, 2016
Psion 5MX - a slice of 90's UK tech prowess - and still of use today!
The Psion series of 'PDFs' (Personal Digital Assistant) were the precursor of the Pilot and eventually, the iPhone, although much has changed since then. The team that built the Psion, a culmination of many year's exceptional engineering and software skill, found it's apogee in the 5MX. Able to do most things that were required of it back in those days such as spreadsheet, word processor, Agenda, Phone book, Email, memo recorder, even a very good alarm clock that allows you to record your own special alarms. It was a fantastic piece of kit, and you could even surf the then-net with admittedly slow dial-up connection. This is pre-Wi-Fi, and the only connection with the outside world it has is an outdated serial port, IR, and an SD drive. So why own one now, when almost everything is higher tech and whizzy and does so much more? You can use it for what it was intended - the spreadsheet is powerful and the agenda very easy to use, even the address book. But they're almost impossible to share with anything else except another Psion. And since so much of that is now available on a desktop, it might seem to be redundant, so I use mine really for one thing, of which it has no peer anywhere in the tech world, even today: The keyboard and the word package, plus batteries that will last for months. Pocket sized text input has never been so easy. If, like me, you want to punch out a letter, write something while standing in a queue or hate the annoying rattle of a train as you work, or the confined space of an airline seat, the Psion 5MX will allow you to do that, and once done, transfer to your PC using the SD card, which can store text as .TXT. It's just so simple. There are a lot of third party software extras for it if you want to be geeky - even the ability to show eight-grey pictures or PDFs, but I love it for the keyboard and the portability. I bought my first one in 1995, and twenty one years later, still use it on an almost daily basis. I think I'm on about my seventh.

Kodak HC-110 Developer for Black & White Films 1 Litre
07 Jun, 2016
HC-110 - your one stop shop for consistency and good quality.
'Wet Chemistry' Photographers will pontificate until blue in the face about the 'best' film and developer combinations, but much of it is down to personal choice. Yes, there are finer grain film/dev combinations, but HC-110 does all films extremely well, the slight increase of grain - and it is only slight, believe me - easily overshadowed by the greater ease of use. I like to use HC-110 because of its good quality and consistency - you can get the same results every time, allowing you to better experiment with exposure and all the myriad of other variables, knowing that your development is nailed correctly every single time. I mostly use it as a one-shot developer, something which allows for much easier temperature control - heating up the stock solution of other developers is much more time consuming, to be honest, but with HC-110 you just use 20 degree water from the tap. You don't use very much dev either, which makes it an economic choice, and if you're an occasional shooter, it has a long shelf-life, too. I shoot about 300 rolls of 120 film a year and have consistent results every time - developmental and exposure errors are only ever mine, and when you use a single developer over a long period of time - like a single film stock - you start to get a very intimate knowledge of what you can do, and you can process a roll of film to drying stage in about twenty minutes. For speed, consistency and ease of use, HC-110 is my dev of choice.
