Commenting

Reading time: 2 mins

I’ve not been leaving as many comments on other sites as I used to, even though I’m still reading as many (if not more) sites. Someone pointed out to me that I could be more constructive with my comments, and they were right. Often my comments are short, silly and pointless. I rarely engage in…

Customisation

Reading time: < 1 min

I’ve been getting back skinning and customisation of my desktop recently thanks to Samurize, Neowin and (the sadly defunct but still findable with Google) Y’z Dock. It’s slightly addictive mind you – and I find myself changing things a lot more than I used to… especially when you come across a screenshot of someone else’s…

Every now and then I get to this stage. I’ve got several priority ‘things’ (all from different sources, some professional, some not) and they are all fighting for space in my head. There is stuff I need to think about at home, stuff I need to think about for work, even stuff I WANT to…

…Friday. OH NO, it’s Friday the 13th!! (cue scary music…) Bit of an odd week. Up and down. Busy on all fronts but only progressing a few. All summed up last night when my Mum phoned and asked what we’d been up to… I was stumped. Essentially we’ve ‘done’ nothing all week. No cinema, nowt….

Pulp issue

OK, I give up. Which paper should I read? I’m not a big newspaper guy, the Metro in the morning, and the occasional paper at the weekend, but I regularly hear comments about papers by others.. is this common information? Is it listed somewhere? (Times = Conservative, Guardian = liberal) and if I hardly read…

Gallery software

Reading time: < 1 min

To appease the Pink one, and fyi, the gallery was created by a fantastic piece of software by the name of Express Thumbnail Creator. It’s an absolute doddle to do, simply shuffle the images you want into a folder (of course making sure they are sized and compressed properly… ahem..) then follow the wizard to…

Ohh god, it seems I’m ‘quite cool’. Now I’m worried that: a. I have a ‘rep’ to live up to b. I’ll need to improve to be consider ‘hip’ (or do I need to get worse?) c. my age is showing. I’m not 24 (which is the age most of my brain thinks I am…

At the beginning of something new, it’s very enlightening and reassuring when the first words you receive are “Fuck yeah!” (actually they are the fourth and fifth words but you get my point). I’ve just become a member of THE TOPICS BLOG. Simple idea (aren’t the best things always simple?) a frequently update ‘prompter’ service…

Started writing again. Been several months since I opened my head and let a little spill out. Might not be pretty, but again, I don’t do this site for you dear reader, I do it for me. True I could write it all down, and keep it to myself, but having been through what I’ve…

Good, bad, mellow

Reading time: < 1 min

Napster decision bad, meteor landing intriguing, NBA ALLstar weekend good! I feel a lot mellower (is that even a word?) now. Not sure whether it was my rant last week, the time I had sitting about thinking when I was prone on my bed, or whether I’ve just reached a point where all I can…

Mucho relaxo

Reading time: < 1 min

I love this state of mind. It’s Wednesday and I’m not quite sure the date. It’s amazing how easily I’ve slipped out of work mode. I suppose sitting about doing nothing is helping though. Mucho relaxo. I’ll be working on the new design this afternoon, and would imagine it will be done for the end…

Still really tired.. permanently – mind you I’ve got Thursday, Friday off work this week. Heading up to Inverness (for a suprise for Louise), and we might be heading through to Edinburgh at some point over the weekend.. hear that Sal? (BTW – how do you spell her name again?) Had a good weekend. Bought…
