Sometimes the way to achieve “less” is to make more use of the things you already have. If the thing you already have is a fairly powerful old laptop, what you may find is that it makes the perfect home server. This week Knightwise tells us all about the laptop with the new lease on life.
Welcome back to season 9 of Knightwise.com where we kick off with another geeky video documentary. We head out to Belgiums best Retro Toystore as the Star Wars fanclub organises their annual fanday. We talk to the owner about retro toys and collectors, interview the people from Teekay-421 and talk to the troopers. (And did I mention we got shot ? )
If you got this video through our RSS feed, remember that you can pick up the high resolution version via our Youtube Channel or right here on the website.
We are back from a couple of busy weeks off in real-world land and got straight back into the Knightwise.com grind by breaking out the camera and interview gear. Reason for that was our coverage of the annual “Fanday”, organised by Teekay421, the Belgian Star Wars fanclub. When we were done doing the interviews ( to be published later this week ), we took some pictures. Have a peek and get a nice preview of things to come later on this week. Enjoy.
We give you the second part of our coverage of F.A.C.T.S. : Belgium’s version of Comic Con. Where we talked to booth-holders and fan club in the first chapter of our coverage, this time, we will be interviewing the people who really make the magic happen t: The Cosplayers. So stand by for great self made costumes, zombies, chicks in bikini’s (with guns), trolls and female Avengers .. It’s time to talk Cosplay.

Remember when you where little ? Perhaps back in the 80″s when Transformers where “kids kinda cool” ? When Michael Bay was still blowing stuff up in his bedroom and had not gotten the chance to pick up the Transformer franchise ? Back in those days the biggest transformer toy you could buy would have been Metroplex. This is probably the laziest Transformer alive because he Transforms into a City. A CITY ! Why ? Is there a way to be more useless and lazy ? (Metroplex just lays around all day watching traffic jams go by near his groin area). But hey : the toy was cool .. it was HUUUGE. Well .. not anymore. Hasbro has just reinvented Metroplex. And this baby will look huge in your living room but also quite formidable on your credit card statement when you buy him. Your beloved wife/girlfriend won’t speak to you for a month and you will have no room anymore for your cat/dog/kid in that little apartment .. But hey .. its METROPLEX.
