Make it stop!

I've had ABBA Gold on rotation in my head for almost two weeks now...Either there's something going on that I need to know from the music or I may be going a bit loopy.What I have discovered is that if you actually *listen* to the tunes, they are actually quite...

My Christmas

..wasn't too eventful but also had a few non-xmas related good points. Sunday my dad informs me that my aunt is coming for the festivities, not really enough time to order a present and I'm certainly not braving the hideousness of christmas shopping IRL. Was working xmas eve although we...

Thanks for the memory…

So last night when I got home I had a couple of packages waiting for me. One contained a 128Mb gamecube memory card, essentially for my Wii. So now there's somewhere for those N64 saves of Mario64 to go. The other was another order from mobymemory.com which contained a 1Gb...

feisty upgrade broke my system!

in attempting to see whether having the newest versions of cups & avahi I discovered that my home server was still running dapper and not edgy as I'd thought. So I dist-upgraded to edgy and found the vncserver wouldn't start automatically. Fixed that by adding the changed fontpath in vnc.conf....

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

With this being the first of the series that I'd be seeing for the first time on the big-big screen, I can't say I was expecting that much to blow me away and in that I wasn't disappointed. Maybe it was the fact we went to see the last showing...
