Well that was a pretty, damn epic weekend. Friday night involved mulled cider, lipstick on boobs, and other nefarious goings on including realising it was time to go to bed because daylight was returning. It was one of those unexpectedly good evenings of making new friends, and probably involved a little more whisky than was…Continue reading Highs and Lows
I’ve been in my flat for just over a week now, I’ve unpacked as much as I can until I purchase more bookcases and it’s starting to feel like home. The living room is a wonderful big space with lots of light, the kitchen is way bigger than my simple needs but allows me to…Continue reading First World Problems
The other day, as I was off work with a bad back, I found myself on the sofa aimlessly surfing the channels for something to distract me. I must have channel hopped for about 20 minutes before I realised it was approaching the hour and there might be a movie starting on one of the…Continue reading Bad bad bad
MP3, USB, JPEG, some factors of our technological life are now “standard”. If I get a new gadget and it doesn’t have a USB connection or USB power cable then.. well actually, I probably wouldn’t buy it if it didn’t so that’s a bit of a moot point. I’ve mentioned before that I’m slowly ripping…Continue reading Where do we go from here?
My parents did an excellent job in bringing me up. Putting aside the fact that I have to say that because they both read this blog, I do truly believe that. They taught me manners and how to have an open mind, two things I value very very highly. It is with the former in…Continue reading A thank you
Note: This has been sitting around in my drafts for ages, I consider it unfinished but that’s never stopped me from posting something before… A while ago Adrian mused (lusted?) over Apple TV sets and in the comment to that post, he rightly states that “Technology should serve it’s purpose and technology should be as…Continue reading Simple Technology
I’m going to start this with something controversial, I do hope the following statement doesn’t shock you, so please take a moment to prepare yourself. OK? All set? Maybe a few deep breaths first. OK, here it is. My new PC is fast, shiny and does lots and lots and lots of things. Phew, that…Continue reading Simple is as simple does
Apologies for the recent spate of grammatically incorrect post titles, for some reason my brain keeps uttering them in a foreign-tinted accent, ya know mon? Most unsettling really, and personally I blame … umm … someone else (obviously, it’s not MY fault). However, the question remains, I had planned to redesign this little corner of…Continue reading Why you no redesign?
Having recorded the TV Series of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy recently, and burned it onto DVD, I’d now like to make a copy of that DVD to give to a friend. How do I do this easily? DVD Shrink?
Lyle “tagged” me – what is with that anyway, so very American is it not? “Tag you’re it” I played TIG when I was a child, tee eye gee TIG! – so you get the joy of another meme. I have a love hate relationship with this. Love them cause the good ones can be…Continue reading DVD Meme
