  1. IT Teachers

    by , 21st March 2008 at 10:53 AM
    Year 7, 8 and 9 I was taught by IT Teachers who only knew about MS Office applications, well they knew as much as the book they was reading from told them. I was disgusted that someone could call themselves an IT Teacher but when asked "How do I fix this problem?" they knew nothing, absolutely nothing, they not even know how to install RAM.

    I moved into Year 10 and decided to do BTEC ICT, I thought that I would be taught by teachers who knew about hardware and have looked ...

    by , 19th March 2008 at 11:57 PM
    I thought today - if I had a blog, I'd say how much I hate these damn Chelsea Taxis everywhere (4x4 off road baby buggies), having travelled behind a couple straining like tractors down our quaint local rural roads.

    So there it is.

  4. Grow Up

    by , 19th March 2008 at 04:18 PM
    It amazes me even though I am in Year 10 how many people in my ICT Class are so immature. Doing things such as:

    • Causing error messages on your computer
    • Turning of the computer when you are doing important work
    • Modifying your startup folder so "Gay" pops up
    • Calling you "Gay"
    • Just being themselves.

    I am guilty to the modifying startup folder but come one most of these things are what you do in Year 7. I can imagine them when they are like ...

  6. Stupid Prices

    Got my Gas and Leccy statement through yesterday.

    Spent 1100notes on the stuff in the last year. Ooops.

    Turning things off at the plug now and putting the heating on a timer.

    And I thought the new boiler would make a difference. Maybe I should get it checked out.

    Saving the planet is hard work!
  7. Journalism is hard work

    by , 18th March 2008 at 09:38 PM
    For those of you who didn't know (because I haven't told many of you) I am moonlighting as an IT journalist, in fact, if you buy the next edition of PC Advisor and look at the helpdesk section you should see my handsome mug looking back at you.
    Its not all joy though, its pretty hard work, especially as I have to do it at night and some of the questions make our users look like veritable IT gods!

  8. Summer Festivals!

    by , 18th March 2008 at 02:40 PM
    2 blogs in one day?! you cry....



    Last summer I decided to eschew (look it up) british festivals in favour of going and trying the european equivilant.

    My reasons for doing so were many - up until that point I'd been an avid Reading & Glastonbury goer, however raising prices, falling standards of bands and generally wanting

  9. A couple of days with a Eeepc

    by , 18th March 2008 at 12:40 PM
    So, I've has an Asus Eeepc to play with for a couple of days now, and thought I'd share my experiences.

    First thing that hits you is the size of this thing. Its dinky. REALLY dinky. I know every review has said that but until you get your hands on one to play with you don't really see it.

    Here it is on my 15" Powerbook

    Why do they call it petty cash? There's nothing petty about it.
