So, I am growing my hair long and right now it is really pissing me off as it just is so messed up. It is curly at the back and all over the place lol. Also, when I wash it and wake up in the morning I have to spend ages taming it.
I intend to try and keep a daily run down of things I am up to, if nothing else to try and show that I do actually work for a living, but to also show the full range of what becoming manglement has done to me.
A quick break down of today.
1 - Mainly sorting out the demonstration Joomla site to show the Head and Business Manager tomorrow.
We had the firm that do our propaganda^Wpublicity materials (prospectus, letterheaded paper, etc) come in to look at
All the recent chatter about the various space missions, ion thrusters, potential for giant balls of metal to crash into the planet etc... has made me think. Why do countries such as thr USA, UK, Japan etc... all run individual space programs, and only occasionally collaborating (such as the international space station).
It is plainly obvious that full collaboration creates amazing advances so why don't we do it more often? And why don't we do it with other industries?
oooh interview on Tuesday for a 'Haven Administrator' which is a posh title for receptionist/secetary. Pays more than here so not fussed. Also would enable me to save lots of cash on not using petrol and get fit at the same time, because the job is at the football club, and that just happens to be where my gym is! Also in walking distance of new house... if we ever get to move!
A week or so ago I got a call from BT offering me their BT Value pack, which equates to getting the BT V-Box (A Phillips DIT9719 HD DVR, worth £200), an on demand pack (worth £6 a month) for free for 6 months and a pair of 200MB powerline network adapters.
The only issue was that I had to renew my BT Broadband subscription for another 18 months (and considering I'd only been with them for a couple of months, it only means I've extended by a couple of months).
Don't think I've got a jobsie that I was confident about... someone scored better on some technicial questions asked...
Got asked about repairing laptops and stuff... which I don't often do at work and I managed to repair a machine (after some prompting to look at the front of it - even though I got it to boot up fine)
They liked the fact I was confident and they said I would fit in well... but there was a bit of apprehension because I was female
When it's not got HDCP (High Defintion Content Protection) as a feature on the chipset.
I recently upgraded my GeForce 7300 low profile HDMI graphics card for the newer 8500GS version from the same company (MSI NX8500GT MTD256EH). Once installed I could never get the BIOS or boot screens to show until Windows (Vista 32bit) had loaded up the drivers when connected via the HDMI interface.
After a little asking around and digging I had found that unless the card has HDCP onboard (as

Well, one of the methods I use to decide whether or not Linux is getting to a state of almost flawless beauty and usability is hardware compatibility - or more specifically, webcam and wireless compatibility.
I own a cheap, no brand webcam from ebay. Absolutely nothing amazing about it in any way, other than it costing me £4. Every Linux distro I've tried in the last few years has failed to accept it, and no amount of fiddling, faffing or poking could get it to work.
As many people will already know, Ubuntu, and therefore Kubuntu and the other *buntu releases, will be releasing version 8.04 (aka. Hardy) in just under 2 weeks.
Now, if you're like me and prefer KDE over Gnome and also want to have a play with the new KDE4 version, you may need to know one thing:
Scim interferes badly.
Now I hope they have it fixed by release date, but if they don't, then here is what happens.
Every single KDE related
I know its a pain for us a network admins, but the software itself is actually quite impressive.
Photoshop is now seventeen years old. Yes, Seventeen.
I first started using photoshop at version 5, and its useablility and stability shocked me then. I've upgraded to every new version as soon as I've been able to, and I've never been disappointed.
