Moving to BT: Not The Best Start…
On Friday 23rd November we exchanged contracts and agreed a moving date of Friday 30th November. On that day I also ordered BT’s Infinity 2 60MB Fibre Optic Broadband Package as my previous supplier of 60MB broadband, Virgin Media, don’t do our new address. After ordering I was told they couldn’t connect it all up until Monday 10th December. A bit annoying, but I could live with tethering on my […]
Why I Don’t Do HD
I’m sick to death of having HD shoved down my throat. Everywhere you go it’s ‘HD this’ and ‘HD that’ even to the point where people make up new meanings for what HD actually is. I overheard a salesman telling an old woman that she needed a HD-ready TV so it will still work after the digital switchover – the poor old dear only wanted a 14-16inch TV for in […]
Perhaps the title itself will give this slightly bizarre blog post away before I even start. Perhaps though, I am misrepresenting you as physics geeks. Time shall tell! There is a theory in Quantum Mechanics (a branch of physics) that matter can both exist and not exist at the same time – this is referred to as a ‘superposition’. Admittedly it is somewhat more complex than that – feel free […]
The Week So Far
I would dearly love to show you some video from Monday’s Green Day gig at Sheffield Arena however my iPhone was stolen and was last ‘seen’ in Liverpool, near Kensington Gardens… On Sunday night my car was broken into as well. Nothing was taken but it did mean I had to pay for a replacement window and the hassle involved.
Great Spelling… But the Wrong Word!
I got an email today from the wonderful CCL Computers (that sounds more sarcastic than it actually is – they are a great company!) as a hard drive I bought from them failed during it’s warranty period. The drive turned out to be discontinued and so I was asked to find a suitable replacement around a similar price, which I did, and replied to their email. This morning I had […]
Been stupidly busy for pretty much a full week hence no action on the blog! We’d been planning for a while to decorate Mini-MaFt’s bedroom with Disney Cars stuff as Winnie the Pooh was a bit babyish for him now. Mrs-MaFt decided to start pulling wallpaper off so that the room looked a mess and we’d actually get around to doing it! The actual decorating wasn’t too bad except for […]
An Early Start
I mis-set my alarm last night and instead of getting up at the planned 6.30am I had set it for 4.30am… Thing is I didn’t notice and came down and booted up the laptop to start work. I then went into the kitchen to make a coffee and saw the time on the oven read 4.34 – my initial thought was ‘oh, we must have had a power cut’ then […]
For those thinking “it’ll be Christmas by the time he blogs again” well, you’re wrong. But not too far from the truth though! Been stupidly busy sorting out poorly kids and poorly me as well as trying to get stuff sorted for the Christmas play I stupidly agreed to do… I’ve been pretty busy with work stuff to – lots to do with PocketGPSWorld.com as usual but I’ve also recently […]
