Done loads of things on the natural thing site but I’ll have to rebuild the template doesn’t render right on a iPad and you’ll be amazed how many people are using them as main computers nowadays! It’s a good job I check every thing properly! Watch this space 🙂


OS X Mountain Lion software

I see the new OS X Mountain Lion software is available on the 25th July 2012
Indications of it costing around 13-19 dollars which is so cheap but so worth it I guess.
I noticed they’ve added iMessage in and a growl type notification system and some security update gate keeper I’m not sure what that does but macs are pretty solid when it comes to security so this will make it bomb proof!!
I usually go for a clean install but I’m pretty happy with my mac at the moment so I’ll probably but it and upgrade from the app store. Things have come a long way for apple in the past five years, I’m glad really because people say they are expensive but I say they are a investment and the software upgrades (new versions) are priced very reasonable.
Do yourself a big favour make the change buy a apple mac and unleash the new OS X Mountain Lion software let it roar 🙂


Synology 4.1 beta on my ds211j

Just flashed my ds211j synology to 4.1 flashed a treat and installed the new DS video package added my used account the privileges and created a new root folder called TV shows. installed the ds video app on the iPhone and iPad – works a treat almost in the style of plex gets film information and a picture of the film. I tried to load a few films and sometimes the internal player don’t recognise the the format and starts ace player as external player which is pretty bullet proof and plays anything! its still beta but works great. Im looking forward to get a USB tv tuner for it and getting it recording TV shows for me thats a great feature! Im still thinking they should install a app so you can plug in a external DVD writer to burn files to disk over the network…..

to get the beta package go here ->
