Friday, Woop!

Posted by | Posted in Random | Posted on 27-02-2009

The best day of the week is here, and better still – my manager is on annual leave. I can’t believe I’ve not made a blog post since Monday… it’s almost as if I’ve had things to do at work!

All About The Tech (Part Deux)

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff, Technology | Posted on 18-02-2009

“The first law of robotics is: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. The second law of robotics is… we do not talk about Fight Club.”

There’s a lot going on in the tech world at the moment, it seems. Yesterday saw the release of (and abundance of news stories about) Windows Mobile 6.5. Windows Mobile is the OS used in a lot of PDAs and handheld data device, and even some phones. Asides from my PDA at work, which I never seem to have for more than 5 minutes before someone robs it, is the only experience of Windows Mobile I’ve had. It seems fairly good as Windows goes, so I’ve got no complaints. I’ve also got no news, opinions, or cares about it either.

Roll On The Weekend…

“…three lightyears, two lightyears, one lightyear… coming, ready or not!”

It’s Friday again! This week seems to have gone rather quickly, much as they all tend to do these days. I hate being constantly reminded by the elder generations that time “only gets quicker as you get older”, when even at the ripe old age of 25, time seems to passing at a blistering pace. Having said that, of course, I’m pretty sure the only thing I’d do with a few extra hours in the day is sleep more.

Again! Again!

Well apparently, the Bank Of England is thinking about cutting interest rates again, this time to 2%. Which in theory, should be good news. Although we all know what happened last time – some of the banks decided they’d pass the savings onto their customers (but not in full, you understand, oh no) and some of the banks won’t pass any savings onto their customers at all. Which kind of defeats the purpose. Those banks will no doubt keep their own interest rates at the same level, meaning more money for them, but it’ll still leave a large proportion of home-owners with a hefty mortgage to pay each month. Again, it comes down to greed.

My Thoughts On Chrome

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff | Posted on 19-09-2008

…but beware it carries a terrible curse! … Oh, that’s bad!… But it comes with a free frogurt!… That’s good!… But the frogurt is also cursed… That’s bad… But you get you’re choice of toppings!… That’s good!… But the toppings contain pottasium benzoate…

I’m a bit of a techy person when it comes to computers and the internet, so like every other Google fanboi, I downloaded Google Chrome and have since been using it on a daily basis. I still have to use Firefox 3 at work (which is no bad thing, of course) but at home I’m free to browse the endless pits of the web with Google’s new baby. So what do I think of it then?
