Busy, Busy and Busy Again!

yamahaclub.jpgSo just a little update to why I have been a little quiet on the blog front and indeed on Xbox 360 gaming. At the moment I have a site to redesign and create with online shopping facilities over at the Yamaha Club website.

I am not doing this alone though (thank goodness), I have with me my dear friend Tammie, who is trying out new designs as we speak so we can both see which ones work best. Online ordering is something that members have been asking for in the past, and with Tammie creating her masterpiece, I am sure we will all be up and running in no time.

Glyn Madden from the Yamaha Club also mentioned something else I am working on in his latest news post:

I hope you’ve survived the heatwave. Can you believe that (with a perfect sense of timing), on the hottest day of the year so far, James Woodcock and I began to record a new tutorial DVD… indoors!! So, while the rest of the world sunbathed in their gardens, we fastened all the doors and windows tightly shut and sweltered under several high-powered studio lights.

Glyn wasn’t exaggerating let me tell you! So something else (once finished) I can add to my CV and this is recording and editing a full tutorial DVD… exciting stuff indeed for me. I have dabbled in video editing quite a bit in the past just for fun, but never of this magnitude. So far the editing is going very well and as with any new process, I am learning things all the time. I hope to have some examples available online in the near future. Maybe I will use YouTube?

Only gaming I have had time for is a few minutes of Nintendo DS Lite every now and then (Super Mario 64 DS), but I should be reviewing Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth II this week with a bit of luck.
