Month: <span>May 2001</span>

Working at home has advantages and disadvantages.

Advantage: you get twice as much done.
Disadvantage: you’re not quite sure what is going on in the office.

I have a few concerns at the moment, not sure I like the way things are panning out. Still I said I’d give it a couple of months, and I will, might be a couple of very short months though …..

Coming Attractions.

Go there (above link) go to the A.I. page (Steven Speilbergs upcoming film) and go to the discussion forum. Check out the ‘Official easter egg website mystery’ discussion.

Amazing stuff…. I’m lost in it at the moment and could be in there for some time I think…

Raining. I mean straight down, bouncing back up about 2 feet, drains only just coping type rain. After the heat of the weekend I’m sure it is a welcome to relief to all garden owners, but to be frank, when you are trying to play football it’s just damn inconsiderate!

The rollercoaster of apathy continues, currently on a down trend, but have a meeting with my new boss tomorrow, hopefully will see an up trend soon!

Note to self: be positive, and stop playing ISS Pro 2 every night!!

Tekken Torture – a true real life event, where people play Tekken whilst connected to a small electrical device that will shock them whenever they are hit… seriously. Obviously these people don’t play their computer games properly, or they’d have the same blisters I do from playing football on my Playstation. I mean everyone knows that if you press the buttons harder, the players run faster… right?

The list of “what do you mean you haven’t got a link on your site to [insert web god/goddess here]” grows. Guess I’ll have to get cracking on that update.

Relaxed, calm, sunburnt, and quite possible still drunk/hungover…

Me and few thousand others will be thinking back to the weekend already, the glorious sunshine, the lumps of carbon cooking on the BBQ, the ice cold beer, the smell of aftersun. All that and it’s only May.

This glorious weekend was tempered only by the installation of my new Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer (one of the new ‘ball-less’ mice). I hate having a clunky mouse, leaping randomly from pixel to pixel instead of following the smooth arc my hand is painting on my mousemat. This was the beginning of a new calm me (as prompted by someone else, she knows who she is) and I would no longer curse my mouse when it got ‘stuck’ a pixel away from the one I wanted to be on. It was ‘Plug & Play’ compatible, so I plugged it in and waited…. then there it was – BLUE SCREEN!!! Ehh? what? it’s a mouse!!… Re-boot in Safe Mode- BLUE SCREEN. Last known good configuration – BLUE SCREEN… what the heck?!

So that’s been the story of my day, reinstalling Windows 2000, and all my software (it failed to repair, and even on reinstall failed to pick up my old user account). Bahh… still the sun has crept back out… Woo Hoo!

BBQ weekend it is then! Sun is still high in the sky, and I’ve got a fresh layer of skin to burn (skin cancer? – it won’t get me! ha ha hahaaaa). However it does mean an early trip to the shops to get the supplies in before anyone else wakens up… better safe than sorry (but on the plus side we are using the in-laws place as they are away, have a fabby big BBQ, and a full freezer of carbonisable goodies!!)

Have a good one y’all!!
