Updates and Stuff

I've taken a long absence away from Tip.It, so thought I'd update a bit on my progress.   Firstly, as surprising as it seems, especially to myself, I have reached 'Max Total' (or rather, what Jagex define as Max). The last levels to get are the 7 longest levels I've had to undertake - including zmi Runecrafting.   In the time I've been absent, that means I have reached 99 Summoning, Farming and Dungeoneering - some of my least favourite skills. Dungeoneering grew on me for a bit, and I have now

The Indefinite Article

'a/an: They are used before a singular noun that has a plural form. 'A' is used before a consonant sound and 'an' is used before a vowel sound.'   Despite the supposedly simple rule, determining the proper usage of 'a' and 'an', a lot of people, and more importantly many journalists, still fail to uphold the correct usage.   Examples that I have encountered recently are 'an spent smoke grenade' and 'an media', with many before then. The reason these two stick in my mind like flies to manure, is

Gripper Progress

I can now close a CoC #2 (rated at 195lbs of lateral pressure) with a braced close.   (for those who don't know, a braced close is where you place your other thumb between the handle resting in your palm and your 'thumb pad'. This reduces the movement that the handle can make, thus preventing it from moving too far and ruining the close).   For now I'm going to accept that that is the best I can do (as in, I can't close it without my other thumb positioned). Therefore I'm going to move up to the

Gripper progress

I know this is my first post regarding this subject, but I thought it would be better late than never.   For those who are unsure what Grippers are: You will most likely have seen them in a sports shop, with plastic or foam handles that provide a way to train your hand strength.   The strongest Grippers in sports shops reach around 50lbs of pressure to close, and for most males, endless reps are possible.   The Grippers that 'Grip professionals' (i.e. Bodybuilders with extensive grip training) a

Dubstep - My hate for it

(Polite Notice: If you do not care about my opinion, then press the back button in your browser).   To me, Dubstep represents a critical loss of creativity to the music industry. I find it to be a disaster upon my ears. The general monotony leaves me with a horrible impression, and the aggressiveness is displeasing.   My actual hate for Dubstep, as a genre, is its fast rise to (somewhat) 'mainstream' play. I do generally dislike the sound, but this is a rather minute observation.   I recently

Ear orgasm.

So i went onto iTunes earlier looking for some trance tracks (namely Sasha - Xpander) and stumbled upon a compilation that is just amazing. Many recognizable tracks and many many amazing tracks. most of the songs were £0.99 each, so getting 59 songs + 3 mixes for £8 wasn't a bad choice in my opinion. Since I'm heading to London, this'll probably be my new favourite album. If any of you want to check it out, it's called Creamfields 10 Years.   Before anyone says outdated/crap/poor taste in music,

New Goal.

I've decided to use my blog as my Runescape blog as well.   My new goal is to get 2100 total. I don't know when I will achieve this, but hopefully soon. I need 36 levels from time of writing. I intend to get 82 smithing straight away, leaving me 35 levels. These will be from 99 cooking, firemaking and woodcutting. I will probably get cooking first, then firemaking, then woodcutting.

Photography in the UK.

Such a sad state of affairs these days for photographers, or, as I should say, anyone with a digital SLR.   On 24th November, I went to London on a college trip, with about 50 other students, and obviously, my DSLR. At about 12:30 we were given 45 minutes to wander around (and near, but not too far away) Trafalgar square. During these 45 minutes, I stayed with 3 other friends, and proceeded to do some street photography. A large part of Street photography is remaining unseen and inconspicuous, a

Boredom and Wisdom.

Since I was bored, i decided to create a blog, to entertain myself, and to make you, the reader think 'Why on earth would I want to read this crap?'. Simple answer: you wouldn't/don't.   If you managed to get past that, then Hello! No doubt you have absolutely no idea who i am, and for those that do, you still don't. Fear not, I have improvised an introduction. I am Me. I do the things I do, and don't do the things I don't. Simple enough?   I am a simple enough person, I enjoy the normal comfort
