Too Late For A December Post - Not Quite

Well I had been planning to write something more meaningful at the end of 2010. Time has yet again run away and I’m not going to get the chance to write about the things I had in mind. So instead the plan is to begin 2011 with a series of postings about my recent discoveries and projects.

I Need To Post More

It has reached the end of February and I have just realised that my posting has once again become none existent. Well lets hope March is a little better.

Lack Of Pictures

I know I said I would upload a few pictures of my computers and I still plan to. I tried taking some pics with my phone but they didn’t turn out great. I will aquire a better camera and try again.

Time For Another Update

It has been many weeks since my last post, as usual I have been busy with many things and often away from net access. So time for a little news. The site has been upgraded to the latest version of WordPress. Given that its taken me less than a week to apply an upgrade isn’t bad for me.

New Hardware Connected

This week the main pc has received an upgrade. I replaced one of my 17” monitors with a 24” beast with a GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB to drive it. Its just a shame I’ll be away again during the week and not be able to use it.

Another Parking Violation

Well I was in London again the other day and the nice parking enforcement people decided to leave a note of my windscreen. The note instructed me to make a donation to the good people at the London Borough of Barnet to the sum of £80. But that I may make a smaller donation of £40 within 2 weeks.

It’s March Tomorrow

This has to be the most pathetic post I’ve ever written. Just so I can say I posted something in February.

Internet Marketing Scam

I have received an invite to an Internet Marketing conference in Nottingham. A too good to be true offer of a free meal and 90 minute conference. A little on-line searching confirmed my suspicions. This website includes images of the letter.

London Is Too Warm

Here I am sitting in a Travelodge in London on what should be one of the cooler evenings of the week so far. I should be cooler than I have been all week, alas no. The window too this room doesn’t want to open as it is stuck. It needs a bit of force applying to it. The problem is it opens inwards and the handle has already been well tugged and could detatch from the frame if I have a go at it.

Quiet November

I just realised I didnt post to the site during November. Why not! I hear you cry. Well basically I started a job at Comet as a Christmas temp, I got older, now 23. Apart from that nothing much happened and the times things did happen i was too tired to mention them and they became less important to blog as time went on. So goodbye November, hello December.

Freeview

I was slightly puzzled about the mention of Big Brother availble on E4 via freeview. My previous knowledge told me that is was only available via a topup-tv subscription requiring a Freeview box with a card slot which I didn’t have. I decided to check this out on the web. The Freeview Website contained the news that E4 was now available for free. A quick retune of the channels and it was there. I was quite pleased at this. I also discovered Men & Motors was also available. Not bad for a 5 minute retune.

The Week That Was

It’s been a different type of week. Not really a bad week but one where stuff occurred that usually doesn’t. It being half term for the school kids seemed to have upset the balance of Nottingham city centre. Monday I wandered away from the university building to mix with the rest of the public. I wish I hadn’t bothered. The place was full of people, trying to wander about was incurred the same level of difficulty as the Christmas shopping usually does.

A Wasted Day Downloading

I managed to waste a day trying to download Episode 5 of Battlestar Galactica. Myself and 6000 other people have patiently been downloading it. You can imagine my frustration when I find the file has been split into small bits inside the rar file. So I join it back together into one file. This time it decides not to play. So i run it through a video error checking package to correct the faults.

Well…..

I dont know how to say how traumatised I was to see a certain video on a music channel. It seems Nadia from Big Brother 5, yes the one who used to be a man, has released a single. I know its edging towards christmas and its cheesy single time but this is going too far.

When Will The Chaos End?

It has been a few stress filled weeks waiting for the decorators to get finished and move on. They still haven’t finished. I want to wake up a bit later on days when i don’t have to be at uni so early. I like routine or at least knowing whats likely to happen. Too much unknown bothers me.

No Epic

“Where is the Epic this week?” thats the question posed by the divine Heather. But that was all the posing she did and none infront of my photon recorder (camera for you dumbass pig fuckers). In answer to the question, I couldn’t be bothered to get off my fat arse and write an epic this week.

Grey Goo Theory

The dangers of nanotechnology have been highlighted by Prince Charles this week. While nanotech has the benefits of ultra lightweight materials, superfast microprocessors and atom manipulation few consider its danger scenario. If a single nanobot (robot on nano scale) can reproduce itself out of raw materials through atom manipulation, what if it doesn’t stop? If each nanobot reproduced itself and this trend continued it would mean an exponential increase in nanobot population. More nanobots = more raw materials processed. On the atomic scale however raw materials all look the same, a bunch of atoms. So a pile of sand or a human are the same to the nanobot. If rouge nanobots started reproducing they could consume all life on earth. The expected result is grey goo. This grey goo would be everything on earth converted into nanobots. If one rouge nanobot escapes how can you stop it beginning the cycle of destruction. You can’t see it, you cant squash it like a bug.

Mistakes Corrected and Problems Solved

It was up earlier than usual for me this morning. The reason for this was my walking off with a set of keys from work after my Wednesday shift. So it was off to uni after dropping them off. Oddly enough I got an earlier bus. It turned up at 7 rather than 7:15. It allowed a record travel time of 25 mins from Ilkeston to Trent Uni.

Bins

The bin in my room is emptied Sunday morning so it can be put in the dustbin ready for monday morning collection. During the rest of Sunday I manage to generate enough rubbish to fill it again. It remains at this fullness for the rest of the week. It’s madness. Does anybody else have this bin problem❓️

Call Yourself A Bus Driver

As some of you may be aware Ilkeston Road coming out of Nottingham is being resurfaced and half of it is closed off by some big plastic partitions. A combination of high winds and bad driving the Driver of the Double 2 managed to clip these barriers. They were then flung across the road blocking any traffic behind. In true bus driver style he drove off and left them where they had come to rest. No consideration for other road users at all.

Technical Fault

DON’T PANIC!!!! Right now that’s sorted I should tell you that your good friends at NTL are having a few problems☹️. It looks like they have been chasing a technical fault in the Nottingham area since 11am this morning. Not that it means much to you monkey people in chimp land. It just explains why web pages are not always loading first time today. I’m sure they will have their army of engineers on it (some poor chap called Pete who has by now had enough and wants to go home to his wife, Matilda, who has made him a nice meat and potato pie).

Phat Sound

The bass is wonderfully strong and I can see why this set is THX certified. Plus if that wasn’t enough the volume control is back lit with blue leds. Now thats quality for you.

It’s Me Again

Yes I know I haven’t been posting as regularly as I like to. The thing is that recently I have been very busy and have not had the time or the energy to blog. I had one good week of blogging a few weeks ago and I’m gonna try and make sure there are a few more like it.
