still not right on the sleeping front. Did sleep okay yesterday, but it still threw into sharp relief how much I haven’t been for a while. Going to have to be careful and make sure that where I can, I get to catch up. Got a couple of nice little things for myself yesterday, a… Continue reading Driven by sleep
So Sunday marked the last Grandstand on the BBC. It is an odd feeling, as the show is 48 years old, and for several years of my life I could guarentee that between 12 and 5 on a Saturday I would be watching it, yet I won’t miss it. Eurosport now holds an even dearer… Continue reading Goodbye Grandstand
Quick little tip, found this today when CTRL + Print Screen didn’t work for me. In Ubuntu, Print Screen will capture your whole desktop, whereas ALT + Print Screen will capture the live window. The latter being just what I needed.

So it is definitely gone. I was hoping against hope I could maybe use it as… Continue reading 0 Uses for a dead iPod
I’m still not sleeping, well not much, but I had a long walk home in the cold (on purpose) last night, and it really shook off a lot of the headiness I’d been feeling, I felt so much better for doing that. If I can do that a couple of times a week minimum as… Continue reading Still not smoking, still sort of sane.
Well, I took the plunge last night. I meant to upgrade one of my least used blogs to WordPress 2.1 as a test, and it was so quick and easy I ended up doing all four. Basic process was just backup the database, disable all plugins, copy the upgrade into the same directory as your… Continue reading WordPress 2.1 Ella – How is it?

This amused me, thieves stole GPS units. Guess how they were tracked down… Three men are arrested for allegedly stealing global positioning systems mistaken for mobile phones.
