Playmobil Jim Knopf (Jim Button) - custom figure

Jim Button (Jim Knopf): The titular hero of Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver (original title: Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer), shares the "glory" with and is the sidekick of his best friend Luke, the engine driver. He grows up on Morrowland (Lummerland in German) under the care of Mrs. Whaat. He wants to be an engine driver too, but he later finds out that his destiny is far greater. His name is derived from his habit of tearing a hole in his trousers every time he does something wild. After mending the hole many times, Mrs. Whaat added a button so it could be opened, rather than torn up yet again.

Converting magnet links to .torrent files?!

As some torrent clients (eg NAS-drives with built in torrent clients like the iomega iconnect) do not support magnet links, there is finally a way to get your downloads working.
Just go to and paste your magnet link like Ubuntu 12.04 i386 desktop, hit convert and wait for about 1 to 3 minutes (processing time).
Now the processed .torrent file can be downloaded. Open the downloaded file with your torrent client.

Mike Myers and Dana Carvey reprised their roles as Wayne and Garth for the first time since 1994 at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards.
Nothing about the two seems to have changed, except both are now in their late-forties/early-fifties, and Garth has gotten pubes he named "Fred" and "Tony."

Really funny Lego knock-off review on youtube! Lego Hitler?

Nikon Coolpix S30 - perfect snapper camera or overprized toy?

Today I pre-ordered a Nikon Coolpix S30.
Nikon Coolpix S30 - blue

Built to resist shock when dropped from heights of up to 80 cm, to resist water up to depths  of 3m, and resist dirt, the COOLPIX S30 welcomes hands of all sizes to shoot with it in carefree fashion. It's also safe to use it at the pool and around water.

Unboxing, photo and video samples

  •  10.1 effective-megapixel CCD image sensor
  •  EXPEED C2 image processing engine
  •  720p movie recording
The camera uses a 1/3" CCD sensor, which is quite small. It won't be the best choice to take pictures in low-light-conditions.

I am waiting for delivery to test the Nikon S30 for myself.

The worst Lego knock-off: Hawk Blocks!!!

This is the worst LEGO knock-off I have seen so far. Hawk Blocks! Do not buy it, do not build it. The "bricks" are of very poor quality and do not match with genuine Lego.
And as a matter of fact it is the ugliest racing car in the history of mankind.

But see for yourself....

An amazon customer wrote recently in his review:
"This toy cannot be named within really good toys as Lego at all. The fabrication is very bad, some parts do not fit, some parts are not included at all. The picture shown on the package does not fit with the toys inside. Bad quality for a high price."

LEGO Stop-motion: TOUCH THE MOON a brick film by yoweyer

This is the latest brickfilm by yoweyer:

It took youtube meber yoweyer two months to make this movie. The idea was producing a space themed video with his own lego collection. Stop-motion-animation was done with MAGIX VIDEO software and the sound effects with VISION LAB studio software.
There was no studio, just a camera and  a green screen yoweyer's kitchen.

Using Logitech Harmony 300 with Acer C20 DLP Beamer/Projector

As the original remote control provided by ACER for the ACER C20 Pico Projector, is only sold in a set with a mini tripod and an iPhone adapter, I've tried to use my Logitech Harmony 300 at first without success. 
There is a ACER C20 profile in the Logitech database, but the projector is not responding to any command. 

The FIX is:
Download the Acer K11 profile (which is a quite similar device) an change some of the commands!
Do not forget to SYNC the remote control!

Enter - OK (Enter)
Next Source - Info - (Auto search source)

Now I have a fine working remote for the ACER C20!
