In The Middle Of It All…

Posted by | Posted in Technology, The 9-To-5 Droll | Posted on 29-12-2008

…and by “it all” I mean “the festivities, but I still have to go back to work”.

Still, you can’t win ’em all. I have had three three-day working weeks in a row, which is awesome because it means I’ve had more time off work than I have at work. I’ve noticed that there are certain things that I tend not to get done so much while I’m not at work – and I don’t mean the work stuff I should be doing at work. Posting on this blog, and also going down the gym, are the two things that I never seem to manage outside of working hours. That, and reading the BBC tech news site, deleting my spam emails, and keeping up with the goings-on on various forums.

UKTA Radio Set For Download

Posted by | Posted in Tunes | Posted on 27-12-2008

Well I played my first UKTA Radio set earlier on tonight, as promised. I also managed to record it too, so I’ve put it up for download here. For the most part, it wasn’t a bad set. There were one or two dodgy transistions towards the end (which was helped partly to the vast amounts of alcohol I’d been consuming throughout the day) but overall it was quite good, especially the first few transistions.

Head over to the download page and check it out if you missed it. The quality of the MP3 is 192Kbps, which is better than the stream we were using (which was only 128Kbps). Let me know what you think!

My UKTA Radio Debut!

Posted by | Posted in Festivities, Tunes | Posted on 26-12-2008

UPDATE: UKTA Radio starts in a moment, and I’m on at 8pm GMT!

Good moaning, I hope Santa was kind and fair to you all. He was both random and practical with me this year, although I think he’s forgotten to drop off one or two bits and pieces. Perhaps he’ll come back for them…

Merry Christmas

I wonder what reindeer tastes like…

Well, it’s that time of year again. And unfortunately I’m stuck at work, doing not a lot. Still, today is the last day of work (until Monday) so that’ll make it three threee-working-day weeks in a row. Win!

May Hilarity Ensue

Posted by | Posted in Comedy | Posted on 23-12-2008

I know I’ve not posted a while as I’ve been busy at work (for a change!) but I read this today and thought it hilarious! Just in case the listing gets removed, here’s an alternative. I’ll try and post a little more at some point before Christmas.

My Weekend Starts Here!

Posted by | Posted in Entertainment, Tunes | Posted on 18-12-2008

Woohoo! Today is the start of my second four-day weekend. At this rate I’m going to forget exactly what it is I do at work!

Over the last couple of days I’ve found myself using some DJ forums (ingeniusly entitled DJForums.com) and so I’ve not been doing much work, or much of anything else for that matter. I have to say that the range of knowledge on those forums is immense. There are complete novices, and proper experts. The good thing is that it’s a very active forum, and people are always willing to contribute. From what I’ve seen the place seems friendly enough, but get on their bad siede and things go very badly for you! Still, it’s a useful place for anyone who DJs. I just cant believe it’s taken me this long to find it!

There’s something wrong with IE, you say?

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff | Posted on 16-12-2008

Although I actually read about this yesterday, I couldn’t be arsed to post about it after such a long-winded entry yesterday morning. It seems that yet another Internet Explorer vulnerability has found it’s way onto the mainstream hacking sites, and even though Microsoft is aware of the issue, they’re not really doing anything about it just yet. Which means the nasty little hacker people have got about a month until M$ coughs up a patch, all the while they can do their darndest to infect as many sites as possible.

I’m Back!

Posted by | Posted in Monday Mornings, Society | Posted on 15-12-2008

But only for three days! After having a four-day weekend last weekend, I’m back at work, and ready to go! And by ‘go’ I mean ‘go home again’. I thought I might have found the time to post on the blog during the last four days or so, but I’ve found that unless I’m at work (and hence, have nothing to do) I don’t tend to post very often.

It Feels Like A Friday

Posted by | Posted in Random | Posted on 10-12-2008

“I’m so excited, but I just can’t hide it…”

For the first time in a long history of Wednesday mornings, I woke up happy. Well, as happy as I usually wake up on a Friday morning anyway. Because today is the Friday of this week for me. For this week and next, I’m having a four-day weekend, which means I’ll only be working 6 days out of 16. Woo! I have to enjoy it while I can, because, as I’ve mentioned before, I’ll be working over Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Ah well, you can’t win ’em all.

Disaster Averted

Posted by | Posted in Random, Society | Posted on 09-12-2008

After trundling off to the gym in the cold and the rain last night after work, I found that my long lost trainers were nowhere to be found. Nor had anyone at the gym picked them up and isolated them for scientific study. As it turns out, they were at home all along, and now I have to suffer the embarrasment of making an appearence at the gym tonight, wearing the trainers that I told everyone I had lost, but had, in fact, not looked hard enough for in the first place.
