Something is different about you… 1

Something is different about you...
Well, some things change but other things stay the same. After a number of years I’ve moved a number of my sites away from Lypha and am now with OVH.  There’s no major reason for this save that with the work stuff we’re uploading bigger and bigger files and as the price is comparable it ...

Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish

Well, it seems that it’s the time of year for the businesses annual Quality Assurance external audit. Past few years we’ve got through them with no problems. When it comes to this years inspection, I’m not so convinced all will be so smooth. Think it’s something to do with things coming in 3’s, be they ...

Thank fuck for that!

Seems that Virgin Media have decided to introduce traffic shaping. Thank fuck I’ve left them then because I’d be way pissed if I was still on the cable network right now.

Cold Coffee

I’m sick of having drinks go cold on me at work. Every bloody time I make myself something to drink, I then get to do something for two hours that means I don’t get to take even a sip. Upon returning to a realistic “Mug from Arm Distance” the inevitable always occurs… sip, cringe, spit. ...

Difficult

This week I have been mostly having problems with: Women (don’t ask) Getting a sensible mortgage application in place (due to being “partially” self-employed-ish… it just gets complicated) Starting a mobile contract with T-Mobile (which is annoying because I’ve had an orange contract since I was 18 and now I want rid of it I ...

Wise man once say

Chinese food is GOOD! Leaving keys at home (i.e. leaving house keys in house, which have on them office keys for gaining access to work) is BAD! Leaving wallet in office after being let into office by someone else on the journey to return home to be let into the house by someone else is ...

The Longest Story In The Whole Of The World (T.L.S.I.T.W.O.T.W.)

It’s that time again, the time where that stupid little voice inside me says “You can come up with a really really good website.” God only knows why it says it because it rarely ever [read: absolutely never] knows what it’s talking about. Websites have been a passion of mind for quite some time. The ...

Stranger things have happened

It’s weird, I can’t for the life of me figure out how I’m acutally: At work and not pissed off. Not completely physically and mentally tired. Reasonably caught up with all of the outstanding work items. Able to use the internet without complaint from the old man. It’s a strange, strange day. I wonder what’s ...

So, how are you?

So, how are you? I’m having a bad couple of weeks….. So far, my grandmother is still in hospital with severe breathing problems and other issues, my father and brother appear to have sparked an all out war between themselves, my girlfriend got onto her teaching course and because I was completely drained when she ...

But it's only £200 quid 2

Been having myself a look at the Freecom FSG for the past couple of days.  Trying to convince myself that around £200 quid for a networked storage system that’s linux based and could potentially run bittorrent without the need for a PC to be on is worth the cash. Ok I’m not really. I’m actually ...
