This is quite spectacular. 
 
Geekscape 2014 Uber-Mega-Album!!!

This is the big one folks! Over 400 Geekscapes dating back to the first ones from late 2013. You'll find all of the artist information along with them, so please share these and go let the artists know how amazing their work is! 

I'd like to thank +DeviantArt.com for creating a fantastic platform and fueling my daily posts. For those who don't know, I started posting these because I spent so much time searching for appropriate images for my Geek Question of the Day on DeviantArt. I kept finding incredible artwork of all kinds that had either very few views, or even worse, was being shared without attribution.

Thus the Geekscape was born...

As a side note, I want to thank all the folks who have nominated, plussed, and shared images over the last year or so. Without you guys these posts would be nothing!

Here's to a very geeky 2015!

On Friday the 8th I ordered some Logitech UE 6000 headphones from Amazon that were 'Used - Like New'. We have Prime so it was free 'One-Day' delivery making my estimated date of delivery the 10th, it was late on the 8th I ordered. The 10th came and I had an email from DPD saying that they still hadn't actually got my package from Amazon yet. On the 11th I contact Amazon to tell them what was going on and they assured me that the headphones had been dispatched. They asked me to wait till the close of play on the 11th, if they still hadn't arrived I would be allowed to get a full refund. They also extended my Prime subscription by 30 days for missing the delivery date. This morning (the 12th) I told Amazon I still had no headphones or even a message from DPD about when they might arrive so they processed a refund. Typically about 2 hours later the headphones turned up. When I opened the headphones they were not what I would regard as 'Like-New', there was dirt on the case, some white powder/paint on the ear cup and corrosion/rust/battery acid on the springs and door of the battery bay. Not Impressed. Getting back to Amazon I informed them that the headphones had actually finally arrived so they could cancel that refund. I also told them all about the condition of the headphones. They agreed this didn't sound like 'Like New' condition and have offered to allow me to purchase the headphones brand new from them and they would refund the difference between a new pair and these and then I can return these headphones for a full refund. 
So out of this I have ended up with £44 off current retail prices on the headphones and an extra 30 days on my Prime account. Pretty happy with how I have been treated by Amazon, good job guys.

New family members. Pretty sure the black and white one will be called Oreo. So far the other is just called Grey.

I forgot I had an Ello profile. It's weird and I don't understand it. Does anyone know how to use it?

A nice auto-awesome surprise from Google. I'm just going to continually talk at my phone camera so it makes more of these. It's better editing than I could do... :-/
