The outlaws left Lower Earley this morning to be en-route to Cambodia. Two years in Cambodia working for the VSO. They were all very excited this morning, trying to screw every last kilo out of their luggage allowance. we'll see them again in August when they return for a wedding, so it's not going to be too long. They do have a Blogger account but I can't find the damn thing at the moment.
A brief guide on how to cock up an otherwise wonderful evening. First, try using the Showcase Cinemas website. It's not very nice to look at but it tells you what you need to know. Try booking tickets. If you get a 500 Server error, try phoning them. If they ask why you're not using the website, don't tell them it isn't working because they'll hang up. Try phoning again.
I get up to a lot. One weekend in three, I pop up to Henlow and go flying (when I say Henlow, I mean RAF Henlow, not Baron's house. His house is really cool but I think I'd be using hyperbole to suggest you could take off in it). The weekends I don't do that, chances are I'm going to end up driving to a family gathering.
[Denizens Only] I get all academic'd up for a day, meet up with Dr Hawkins of a famous company, drink whiskey, decide modern life is a template I'm bored of, eat Tapas, bitch about censorship, introduce StumbleUpon and some new Icar graphics. It's all in one blog post. Hopefully I'll do more.
Poor Language Warning: Ok, Apple, you are a bunch of ridiculous bastards and it will take a lot more evidence for me to buy anything from you again. You're hopeless stupid and arbtrary and I hate the ground you walk on.
If this is a rant then it's a rant about my own inadequacies and inability to move on. Since I got Boggy (the name of my iPod Touch), I've been using iTunes as the player, downloader and so on. Before iTunes, if I wanted music, I'd nearly always borrow it from someone, think it's good and then get the album.
The last ever gig for Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine was at London's Brixton Academy on 2nd November 2007. As a birthday prezzie, Dwain had bought me (and himself) tickets earlier in the year. Why have I left it nearly two months to write this up? To make a clear headed comment on the gig. But even now, it's not going to happen.
A single player extravaganza. Mum kindly got me this for Christmas, I'm running it on my 4400X2 AMD with a 7800Gt and the standard 2GB of RAM. The initial settings were a little low (minimum spec), so I had a fiddle to improve the resolution and so on. I run it at 1280x1024, the native res of my monitor with no AA or AF set.
I'm an Uncle again! Sister has dropped sprog 2, 8lb 6oz (a big one). Baby, Mother and father all well (although I imagine my sister's language was profane).
Oh, and Happy Birthday Edward!
