RMQG V0.5.3 and CMDQuest released, apesstuff updated.

Hello all. I haven't posted in a while (3 months in fact) but i've finally found the time to do another post. This one is mainly news. I've released RMQG V0.5.3 (Released it a while ago actually) so you can download that at the SourceForge page here:

I've also released a game called CMDQuest. It's a command line RPG. Yes thats right i finally got round to making a game. It's only the second version so it's not really playable as a actual game yet but if i can get stuck in with it hopefully it should get developed fairly quicky. Thats the theory anyway. You can find out about it and download it at the SourceForge page here:

Finally I've update apesstuff again. I've added some pictures that i've taken in GT5 using the photo mode. You can find them here:

And that all the news for now. As always if you need any PC help please visit A great forum for computer help. Till next time.

How To: Get the disc out of a YLOD'ed PS3

Hello all. Well my PS3 YLOD'ed again for the second time today so i thought it would be fitting to post this today. As some of you may know when a PS3 does get the YLOD (Yellow Light Of Death) if you have a game disc in at the time it won't eject because the PS3 isn't on long enough for you to get it out. I found out how to get the disc out when i phoned Sony. So i thought i'd post this up here for people who didn't know how.

To get the disc out make sure the PS3 is off at the back. Then hold the eject button down and flick the power switch on the back on. The fan should come on very fast and the disc should pop out. Be sure to grab it quickly or it will go back in.

And thats it. now you know. If you have any questions please fell free to either comment on this post or email me.

Inside a Hi-Grade 8615.

Hello all. Today i will show you the inside of a Hi-Grade 8615 and explain what each component is. For higher resolution pictures click the links under the pictures. So first up is a overall view of it with the back access panel removed.

From Hi-grade

Here we have the hard drive in the upper right corner, The fan in the upper left corner, On the far right bottom corner is where the wireless network card would go if i had one, which i don't. Next to that just to the left is where the RAM goes. I do have some of that. Finally at the far left bottom corner is where the CPU is located. You can just see it under the heat sink.(Which is the orange piece of metal that goes from the top of the CPU to the the very top of the picture just infront of the fan.) Lastly right next to the CPU to the right is the graphics chip or more precisely the heat sink on top of the graphics chip. (The silver rectangle.)

Next up is a close up of the left section.
From Hi-grade

Here you can see this section in more detail. Next is a close up of the right section.
From Hi-grade 
Here you can see the right section in more detail.Finally is a close up of the CPU.
From Hi-grade

Here is a close up of the CPU. and that's it. Hope you found this interesting. The next computer we'll be inside of will be a IBM R40e. Till next time.

A few useful websites for starting out using Linux.

Hello all. I thought i would put together a few useful links to help people start out with Linux.. The first place you should go if you are new to linux is the Wikipedia page here:

It has loads of information on Linux. The next website is which is a very handy website for finding linux distributions. Its also a great place for keeping up with updates for different distro's. Here's the link:

Next is which is the place to go to get the latest version of the Linux kernel. You can also download a few Linux distro's from there. The link:

another useful website is The Linux Documentation Project. It has loads of HOWTOs that can be a lot of help. The link:

Next up is the forums. Forums are one of the biggest places to find and ask for help. here's a few that i use and find very useful:

And that all i can think of for now. hopefully you will find these websites useful and that you will choose to try Linux as it is a very good operating system and absolutely free. till next time.
