Slowly getting the things together that I needed to have a stab (haha, I'm so funny) at making a knife - now have a belt sander, angle grinder AND I picked up an old Wiltshire file too!

Some good books there! The Night Angel Trilogy is a favourite of mine, Brent weeks is a good author IMO and the Black Magician Trilogy is also pretty good, I've read both a few times each :D

Are you me? I saw those specific books and came to post exactly that. Love Brent Weeks. If you enjoy The Night Angel Trilogy, check out the books from his current Lightbringer series; The Black Prism and The Blinding Knife. Definitely one of the most interesting adaptations of magic I've ever read and I read a lot of fantasy. I quite like Trudi Canavan as well, especially the Black Magician Trilogy. The Magician's Apprentice, the prequel to that series is also great, although I'm not really enjoying her latest series.


I'll be sure to let you guys know what I think of them all as I work through them :D

And re Forever War, I've heard a lot of mixed things about it, but it does pop up a lot on "must read" lists, so for $6.40, why not :lol:

Haha, we must have good taste! I've actually read the Black Prism and I remember being blown away at his ability to just.. create a new magic system that is interesting and memorable. I saw the second book at Kmart a few months ago but I'll need to reread the Black Prism before I attempt it and I just haven't found the time or motivation to get stuck into it yet.

I didn't realize there was a prequel to the Magicians Apprentice.. I might need to look into that! If you like Brent Weeks you should keep an eye out for Brandon Sanderson, his stuff is quite good too.

My Mini-ITX Build! I sold my ASUS G73SW laptop so I could build this instead to leave at my sister's in QLD, as I go up fairly often (going there this march for ~3 weeks)

It was mainly a bluetooth issue between my Nexus 4 (or any Nexus for that matter) and my Stereo (RNS510) in my VW :( Something to do with Rsap (some European bluetooth profile) and some Android phones.

Don't get me wrong, I will miss how open Android is compared to how locked down iPhone is, but as a Phone / Camera / Web browser, you can't go past the iphone....if you want to do more than just Phone/Camera/Web then I suggest looking into an Android phone.

I can also vouch for CDKeysDirect, CJS-CDKeys and OnlineKeyStore, all with multiple purchases, usually getting keys instantly. Love CD Key sites <3

I'll probs be getting mine from CDKeysDirect. Looks cheapest and I know they're legit.

I used CJS-CDKeys. For $47 its not bad. Kind of sad that the difference between buying on a key site and buying it from Origin/EA is paying double that price and you won't get anything extra. :|

I've never used CJS CDkeys before but they do seem to have a lot of support from different customers so taking a shot. :)
