Fingers Crossed!

I fixed Azureus!

Long story short: it was Norman.

Not Huntley.

WTF Gwan?

Something very strange has happened to my Windows machine.

For some reason:

1 - Azureus throws a Java error suddenly (and randomly)
2 - uTorrent (which I just upgraded to 1.2.x crashes randomly)
3 - Parsnips cook slower than potatoes
4 - All of this happened as soon as I DL'd a .dmg file for Huntley's Mac!
5- Erm....

Huntley. I fear I must kill you! :)

Nearly Forgot....

....I don't celebrate Thanksgiving (obviously), but Boing Boing [see links on right] posted this....A Thanksgiving Prayer, by William S. Burroughs...which is pretty damn cool in my book.

I Hate Today

Today has been very annoying.

I have 45 pence in my pocket. I have 8.59 in the bank. You cannot withdraw this amount without going to the bank. The bank is closed. And anyway, the nearest one is about 2 miles away. The local shop does not accept Amex. Luckily Tesco do. Tesco is about 1 mile away. Luckily I have food and it is pay day tomorrow.

Work is aggravating. Having to fill out reams of documents to "track" (read create red tape) for the last version of OGDR (basically, the Orange mobile bible!) I will have to contribute to.

I have watched all my films and downloaded TV. Myth Bustered out...watched The Life Aquatic last night, Sin City the other day....new stuff not downloaded yet. And anyway I can't for the life of me think of a film I want to watch....any ideas?

I have read all my books. At least twice.....I need more! Any ideas? SciFi please!

I got so bored last night I made cardboard robots for Sonny and Esmae.

Lil got sick on me. :)

I only have the crappy camphone right now, so no pics thereof.


It is payday tomorrow and M&D are coming down on Sunday and I do have Lil for 2 hours that day....and I did buy her a new toy today :)

So....I am going to hibernate this evening...and wake up tomorrow when it is Friday, Pay Day, Happy Day and unfortunately Washing Day.

Take the rough with the smoothe.

Stupid man!

I've just implemented and tested some great (free!) upgrades to the blog...then I noticed the maintenance warning from Blogger.....Damn. Damn Damn.

This is why I am looking to go back to self-hosted, self-managed servers.

Still, I have not lost any old posts. Only the last few hours hacking CSS/XHTML.

I am the Nodulator!

So. Turns out (after some messing around with the wrong dates) that my lump is just that....an unidentified lump! Bloke stuck an endoscope up my nose to look at my vocal chords and apparently there's a bit of a "bulge", so I will have a sore throat and lack of voice for a while after the surgery on the 14th.

Good News!

And to celebrate, here's a pic of Lil playing with her favourite toy!

Apparently the biopsy results are back.

I have an appointment for 7pm this evening.

Scared :/

Will update later when I know the score

Been busy

Been a bit busy doing other things recently...also swapped back to the SE/// K600i which makes it a bit harder to swap files between laptop/PC/phone....however, here's a few pics with taken with the K600i over the weekend.

Lil is still gorgeous.

You can't really see here, but she's wearing some new clothes (Thanks Nicky!!!!).....the 0-3 months babygro's only just fit her, so I got Rosie to exchange them....good ol' Mothercare ;) So she got a lovely romper suit thing and a coat (all for 1 year olds, but they kinda fit).

Still waiting to hear about my "lump".

Hey ho.

Been a while...

Since I posted. But hey It's my blog, I'll post when I want....or when I can.

My lord, I love BitTorrent! I have spent the weekend and most evenings this week watching Lost (Season 1)....and thanks to the torrent I'm now ahead of the UK season (on C4). In fact....I'm 5 episodes into Season 2....so if you want to know what happens.... ;)

Also, got Star Wars III on download at the moment :)

The main reason for the lack of updates in tha past week can only be put down to "sadness". Yes, I have been feeling a bit down: am I a crap dad? and how can I tell when I only see Lil for 4-5 hours a week? Yes, I have the new job to look forward to, but getting out of a job means lots of work for handovers and stuff....plus I am actually nervous about the new job....never thought I would get a job that I'm not sure I can actually do. Plus, the beauty of depression is that you don't actually have to have anything specific to be depressed about.

So, my recovery plan?

A night out with the female Ricola on Saturday night to see Babel featuring the male Ricola (amongst others)....check out that link....they RAWK! In a folky-klezmer style ;)

Oh....that's why started this post...

Also...do not give money to this man! ;)
