As I was filtering through the inordinate amount of spam and crap I get in my inbox this morning, I spotted an email offering a reduced entry into the Windsor half-marathon in September. Before I realised it I was starting to complete the info and dig out my card. I managed to stop just in time...after all, I have New Year Resolutions to keep...
This year I have enacted my plan to go to a developing country, I have been plotting a trip to Uganda for some time but since the bit I want to go to is close to the Kenyan border it seems like a crappy plan.
I'm a fan of Biowares games since way back. I can vividly remember arguing the pros and cons of various party members for Baldur's Gate 2 while when we were at uni. Knights of the Old Republic was one of the first must have titles for the xbox and was a game I played into the ground.
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.
Myself and EMW have a site called Rocket Propelled Badger for film reviews.
Its based on Ruby on Rails scripts running from a SQL backend, pretty standard. Matt wrote it a fair while ago, and its been running fine since then.
I've been on the look out for a practical mini laptop for a while, something that won't break the bank, is nice and small, and yet still vaguely practical for the odd bit of computing on the move.
And I'm feeling kinda tired.
I feel jet lagged. I think I should be somewhere in the middle of America. My body clock is seriously suffering after getting used to going to bed at 3-4 am everyday. It was a severe shock to the system when the alarm went off this morning!
Happy New Year...
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.
