Razer eXactMat

This mat came with my Razer mouse, its large, hard wearing and has two sides. One side is speed, and the other is for control, the surface on the control side is slightly rougher. Also came with a gel wrist rest, some people may find it comfortable, but i feel it gets in the way a bit. I use the speed side for gaming, in particular for Counter Strike. If I am designing things on a program like Photoshop or similar packages where the requirement of speed is replaced by the need for accuracy then i just flip the map over and instantly have more precise, smaller mouse responses. After years of use, this metal mat with hardwearing coated surface is still as good as new, on each side it has 4 rubber feet which keep the mouse mat planted firmly on your desk in the middle of an intense game of CS!

Vote Fajja for Islanders Captian

Voting is now under way on thesgl.com to find the captain for the “Islanders” team in the UK Home Nations Cup. Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England are all taking part, but to make the number of team even, a 6th team was added to the lineup, this being the Islanders. This should be a chance for the wee islanders to have a go on the national stage, but at the moment the wee islanders are being outnumbered by the bigger english island such as the Isle of Man and the IsleWight, each of which have a population of over 75000! Whereas Arran, my island, has a population of just 4500. Give the underdogs a chance, vote for Fajja @...

Basshunter Tops the UK singles Chart!

After downloads alone, basshunter was at number 14 in the charts last week, and this week it was out to buy, and has gone straight to the number one spot!
