Been a while but filling out up today I remembered to take a pic.
Over 38mpg averaged over two tanks by my wife recently. Better than normal tbh. All on cheap 95 ron fuel

Metroid Other M : Walkthrough Guide

Some consider it cheating but I quite like having walkthroughs available when playing a game.
This one is text only , but the linear nature of Other M means that isnt really a problem
(compared to Metroid Prime series which was free flow and very easy to get lost/have no idea where to go next)

Metroid Other M Walkthrough by Daniel Acaba

I'll hunt out a visual walkthrough in due course too

Played a few hours on the game and its better than I thought initially, still crave for nunchuck support and he freedom to move from the spot in first person mode.

full review to follow

Update Oct 2010 : heres a visual walkthrough which helps even more

Samsung Galaxy i7500 Updater by drakaz : Easy way to update your phone

having moved on from my bad experiences of the Samsung i7500 Galaxy (its a good phone, just that Samsung seemed to 'forget' it ever existed so it was stuck on 1.6) to a Google Nexus One.

But I still keep an eye on things to see what the community is doing, as many still have the phone and cant afford to change.
Ive got one in my cupboard doing nothing too!

So I was pleasantly surprised to find some great new work by drakaz, making it so easy to root and update to custom ROMS.

There are two roms GOASP and Galaxo which you can choose from. Reckon I'll dust off the i7500 and get it flashed ASAP as a backup.
In fact if this had been available a few months ago I may well have stuck with the Galaxy :-)

Easy Root (required for next step)

will update as to how I get
