New toy

So i decided it was tech upgrade time.  My old tablet is an Asus transformer prime tf201 and my laptop is an old HP i3 with 4 gig ram. While both were ok they are getting a little old and slow.

When the Microsoft surface pro came out i was impressed but the battery life wasnt good enough to make it a good portable.  A few days ok the Surface pro 2 was released here in NZ.  Using the new Haswell chipset it has much improved battery life. After a couple of hours of using it in the local computer store i decided it was a good fit for my needs and purchased it.

Im using it right now to do this blog post and its working well so far.  I'm going to put a few of my favorite programs on it, photoshop, a couple of game's etc and give it a run for its money.

New Job

Well the title says it all. After almost 10 year working for Battlefront Miniatures as a Sales Manager, Miniature painter and Customer service rep I have decided to move on to something different.

I'm hoping that now im out of the gaming industry (which ive been working in for almost 20 years) that I will get back a bit of the fun spark I used to have - which hopefully means more gaming and painting.

Starting in a weeks time ill be starting as a Customer service rep for AA insurance.  Weather this will mean I get more hobby stuff done or less remains to be seen but I do know its a change for the better for me and my family and im looking forward to my new role.
