The torture begins… Pizza Express with Sas and 7 of her friends before the sleepover…
Just finished re-casing No.1 son's DS for the 2nd time. Let's hope this time it lasts longer than 4 days… http://bit.ly/emSkd
So the first time it broke, about 6 weeks ago, it wasn't his fault, the original Nintendo DS case had cracked plastic around the right-hand hinge on the lid, making it all floppy. So, I got him a replacement replica case from http://www.ebay.co.uk/ for £15. Took me about 2 hours to replace the whole thingContinue reading “Just finished re-casing No.1 son's DS for the 2nd time.

Some photos from San Fran…
Some photos from South San Fran. Blue car is nasty Stateside Ford Focus (which invades your ipod and displays the Ford logo… nasty Microsoft SYNC…) Bleah. And meh. See and download the full gallery on posterous
Amazing, breathtaking images from the refurbished Hubble Space Telescope http://bit.ly/dvtf6

Spotted David Gest in the Inn at Whitewell, Forest of Bowland, (For you Southerners that's in Lancashire). Much shorter than I thought he would be, nice red-topped hair do. He even waived at Olly, which was nice…
Watching the sun set over the Atlantic at Porthtowan beach… Perfect end to a perfect holiday.
After riding the Camel Trail I've decided it's time to buy a new bike…
Happy Wedding Anniversary…
Sharing a curry 200 miles away from home with a work colleague when I should be celebrating my Wedding Anniversary with my Soulmate 😦 Sent from my Nokia phone
Some quick snaps taken on the taxi ride from Delhi IGI Airport to the Hotel
Seems like even in the most ramshackle row of falling down buildings there's always room for a Vodafone/Aircel/Nokia/Samsung/Sony Ericsson branded mobile phone shop/service centre 🙂 They don't seem to care about repairing the road, and they're not even that arsed about building the new Airport Metro link, but they do seem to love their mobiles…Continue reading “Some quick snaps taken on the taxi ride from Delhi IGI Airport to the Hotel”
Scone and coffee – takes me back to the GPT days. Where's Barney the vending machine-filler-man?
First time I've seen this in over 3 years! #Apple #macmini
I've been using a Mac Mini as my main home desktop computer since March 2006 – and it's been powered on every single day since then, giving good loyal service to the whole family. And then this morning (whilst trying to get some unauthorised 3rd party hacked-up driver to work with an un-supported webcam inContinue reading “First time I've seen this in over 3 years! #Apple #macmini”
Wonderful embodiment of a "glass half full" :-) #MoBB
Wonderful embodiment of a "glass half full" 🙂 "RT: @MobileBrainBank: 10,000 tech professionals in Finland alone made redundant since Jan. What a magnificent force for creating something new. #MoBB" retweet from MobileBrainBank (obviously). Taking the positive view on undoubtable woe casued by major redundancies in the Finnish mobile sector. Heartwarming. Maybe they could make aContinue reading “Wonderful embodiment of a "glass half full" 🙂 #MoBB”
More #HumanLeague nostalgia…
I’ve been on a Human League Nostalgia trip after listening to my 1980’s playlist driving home tonight… and then found some videos on YouTube: ..and then found some really ropey videos of their live performances from 2003-2009! Shock – Phil’s got no hair! Maybe he should do a Gary Glitter and get a stage wigContinue reading “More #HumanLeague nostalgia…”
The great N97 transition… I love it!
Well, at last, thanks to some serious Finnish quality, I’m happy again! That is after the boys at work had made me suffer with the appalling P990i for over 2 years – what a great disappointment that phone was. I don’t know how Sony Ericsson could ever hope to be taken seriously again after releasingContinue reading “The great N97 transition… I love it!”
Loving the Deadmau5 CD – particularly “Slip” (Thanks Zane!), “Brazil” and “I remember”… Genie-oooos! .
work :: incubator :: mess
Well, I got some serious high frequency testing done this morning – “work” to me, but my 8 year old daughter thought that some of this stuff was “an Incubator”. The Missus just thinks it’s “a mess” 🙂
