Its finished

Check out the new style! (press ctrl+F5 if you can't see them yet)

Let me know what you think, also if you think its displaying incorrectly/badly or your seeing somthing you think you shouldn't, take a screen shot and email it to me. Cheers

Enjoy while I go off to study the second-order partial differential equation governing wave propagation in one-dimention also known as the non-dispersive wave equation...great



Well then, so its been a few days again but now I have some more news n talky stuff about whats been happening to me. (after all this is all about me anyway)

First off, the other weekend (20th May-ish) me and a few mates went on down to Bournemouth for me mates birthday and to watch the FA Cup final. It was all good, especially the footy score, hehehe.

This last week I have been mostly trying to do revision for my exams which start tomorrow. I have one every day Tuesday to Friday, but once they are done, I have finished for the summer!!

Last Friday my Dads HDD died. In a "nope, I'm not going to read anything anymore, ever" kinda death. So a new HDD was bought, a fresh install and update of most stuff later, everything is ok.
Roll on Saturday morning, hmmm gets stuck booting up. Even in Safe Mode. Stops at a file called mup.sys
The internet said that the file was corrupt and that you had to replace it with a fresh copy, but the computer was being a pain and wouldn't let me in to do the swap. To cut an already long story a bit shorter, I eventually took a little 2Gb HDD and installed XP on it, put the 120Gb corrupt install HDD in that PC, copied the file, plugged everything back in how it should be, and voila. It worked. Whole day taken up to do all that. Grrrrr Micro-Gates

New style should be out soon. Just got a few changes to the style sheet left to do and some files to upload. Maybe at the weekend. (or before if I get sick of revision)

I have managed to set up Remote Desktop Connection between my laptop and my desktop which is cool, which means that I can use iTunes and stuff while using my desktop. Hooray.

I also have started to frequent the Counter Strike Source Server used by The Peace Keepers. Its a good friendly server and has a good player rank system setup. See related link for link to their site.

I think thats all for now

see you guys later

The last 4 weeks of my life

Ok, so its been nearly a month since I last posted on here, and for that I am sorry for all of you who check on here regularly. Life just got far too busy and I negleted quite a lot of stuff, this being one of them.

Anyway, I am now six university projects lighter, one Phatfish gig later, may cups of tea heavier, and overly tired, but I am here to rant and rave.

University report: I have now finished lectures for this academic year, but I do have exams starting a week today. But my last exam is on the 3rd of June, so soon I will have lots of free time...

Current projects report: "The six week project" - FAILED - boo, I missed a day right near the end of the project which was really annoying, one of my housemates demanded that I took one of the photos off Flickr too so Flickr was 2 photos short and then on Friday, my camera died. I turned it on, the lens came half out and then the mechanism jammed. Just two days short of the end of the project and I managed to use my camera to death!
Donations for a new camera are more than welcome, all proceeds will go towards getting me a Canon Powershot A520 cause its a really good camera.
When I get the new camera I will probably start a new photo project to go with it.

Job report: On the 6th of June (two weeks yesterday) I start back at my old 6th form college, working in the IT Support department again! Alrighty!! Lots of work, lots of pay, I hope to be in the black by the end of the summer.

Computer games report: Ohh I found Red Alert in my wardrobe yesterday, I my have to try to get that running again (I think I need to run it in DOS though) and Black and White, an interesting God sim. There are still no sign as to when STALKER comes out, but we play Counter Strike Source to pass the time.

Film Report: Reservoir Dogs - Definatly one of my favorites, very funny, brilliant directing and an unconventional ending, which is what I like.

Operating Systems report: I am currently downloading Fedora Core 3, and plan to try to get it to run in Virutal PC so that I can spend some time getting to learn how it all works, which may become useful for my dissertation. (more on that in the weeks to come)

I think that is all for now.
I plan to write some more soon, just as long as I have somthing to write about.
