Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure returns

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure

After quite a long delay with Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure I am pleased to say it is now coming back although it will no longer be weekly as originally planned but “as and when”.

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure will be coming back in two forms – the reviews and the rants which both have their own style of editing and other things I am sure you do not care about.

For the reviews I will be carrying on as I normally have – just get something, whack it in front of the camera and then review it in a half arse way – much like how Dr Ashens does them which is what my reviews are influenced by. The next one though is the rants and honestly I figured I would go back to the original idea I had for them – allow people to give ideas!

AOC E2251FWU USB Monitor Review

AOC Monitor

Product on the right

This originally was going to be a video review showing me unboxing the monitor, connecting it, installing the drivers and then showing you how it works but then I thought how hard that actually would be hard and a boring video. If you are in a rush then here is the review summed up – it works very well as long as you are using the two USB cable provided.

So let’s get the technical stuff out-of-the-way first. As you have read in the title this is a 21.5″ – 1920×1080 monitor that runs purely from a USB cable (it is a Y spilt USB cable so actually uses two USB ports on your system) which is very light and allows you to easily add a second monitor to any system that use a spare USB port.

Becoming a laird

The Much Honoured Nemo of Great Barrier Reef

As of today I am pleased to say I am The Much Honoured Irvine Carbrey Pal Grant Mac Fhionnlaigh of Kincavel and you all …. wait someone else is already a laird of Kincavel and I can’t use it? Can I keep the Irvi… no okay.

So I have heard a lot more about people selling land which allows you to become a laird – I even looked back at it in 2007 and wondered if it was actually legal to actually buy a title. If you are wondering what I am on about check this link – Buy a Laird Title from a company you think would actually research it.

Comments are a pointless relic

Does anyone even care?

Does anyone even care?

As one of the millions of bloggers I have always wished for people to comment and get involved in a discussion but like a few other bloggers the discussion that relates to the things I write about is being discussed on another website and not my own and again like other bloggers I have tried to get them involved on here.

The more I think about this the more I come to the understanding that comments on most blogs is actually pointless for a few reasons. The first is simple – most people when they create a blog they are expecting to create a community when people will discuss on the subject. That is fine for some blogs but a blog like mine people visit to enjoy the content and then go on about their lives and if they enjoyed the content then more often than not they will post it on a forum somewhere they often visit and discuss it with “like-minded people” to them.

The wheels on the bus

.... a sight I am sure you all seen

If you are a long-term reader of Tweaked for your Pleasure then I am pretty sure you are aware that I do not like the public bus service that runs near me and yet again today we have another horror story.

So the other day I was coming home from a place that is long dead when I had to get the bus which the school children uses. While I normally have no problems with that bus as the children go upstairs and there is room below, I seem to have it on the day where a few people who was getting on the bus had the biggest ego in the world – an ego so powerful that it makes Final Fantasy’s Kefka look like he is actually a normal jester.

Fuck I would have a kid for door parking

Special parking - but why?

Why bother with parking like this?

There is one thing I have always found somewhat confusing in our modern age – dealing with pregnant women. while I am sure that not everyone that is pregnant is a bitch fuelled by ego, I have just seen that lately pregnant women are giving more and more simply because they are pregnant and I am not talking about the benefit system here.

So the other day I was going to ASDA in my local town where I saw three set of parking. The first set of parking was the disabled parking which was near the ATM which is still pretty far to walk. If we go on the logic that most people who are medically disabled and hold a blue badge needs it because something medically has happened to them such as dodgy generics or what not but the important thing is it did not happen by their own free will.

Looking for a gym?

payasugym.com official website

I am sure that many of my readers and more so the people who found this article via a search engine knows about the massive health gains about joining a gym (and proper dieting) but if you are like the many others – you do not know where the best deals are.

Well thankfully finding gym membership that works around the traditional contracts in which you pay monthly, PayasUgym is an idea based on the pay as you go model in which you up credit on their website, then you simply going to a gym that is taking part and that is it.

Flick the switch, you dick

It is not often I find something to moan about but I am sure some people driving in cars paid for their licence and not trying to pass it.

For those that drive, I am sure you are aware on the little blinking lights that exist on your car that flash amber – these tells people such as other drivers which way you are going to turn and this also means that people who might be walking or riding a bike can also see which way you plan on turning.

So lets say you are a driver and you are planning to take a left on a road where you can keep going. You also see a person that is walking and turned around to see what you are doing. Now lets say you are wanting to go left but do not show which way you plan on going.
