It worked …..


   The resizing of the partitions on the youngest lads PC went well. A lot better than I expected. Mind you, I did practice a couple of times with my portable drive. It took about an hour, but I’m well pleased with the result. Step 1 – completed.    Never did get the bike ride. … Continue reading It worked …..

Still here !!!!!


(Wednesday 30/06/10)    It’s been a long time since my last post (or so it seems). Quite a few late nights over the past few days. The play is coming along nicely, but after the rehearsal, S**** like to nip along to the local for a pint or three. Of course, like a good father, … Continue reading Still here !!!!!

Tired and working too hard …… (my excuse)


   Quiz-nite on Tuesday went very well. That ‘spare part’ feeling had dissipated somewhat. The two people, in the group that don’t usually acknowledge my presence, did this week. That made it a very pleasant evening. However …… getting home at 23:45, and then deciding to have a brandy (or two) is not a good … Continue reading Tired and working too hard …… (my excuse)

…..and not just printers !!!


   Sunday was a  bit of a ‘technology FAIL’ day. It started, when read a report on ‘The Register’ that told me that my PC was in ‘DANGER!!!!’ The ‘danger’ was that much of my software ‘may’ be at risk, due to not patching. Being the careful IT nerd that I am, I immediately logged … Continue reading …..and not just printers !!!

Stereo again …


   Mrs H bought me the new PC speaker system I wanted. It looks better than the last one and has a much better sound. I can now alter the bass tones, which I was not able to do before. So well satisfied am I.    It was quite foggy this morning when I set … Continue reading Stereo again …

Weekend … what weekend ?


   Well nothing much happened over the weekend. I did the run around with the Christmas presents, for my family, on Saturday. That took all of 2 hours. Great fun, I don’t think !!!    Sunday at home, then into Leeds to pick up the eldest, who is stopping here for Christmas. He is going … Continue reading Weekend … what weekend ?

It’s Friday (again)


   The software update worked. Well, saying that, it worked on my PC. Everyone else is being updated as of 5:00pm tonight. The project leader, wanted to leave it until 06:00pm, but it seems that the IT staff would be finished before then. So 05:00pm it is.    Youngest was back from respite today. He … Continue reading It’s Friday (again)

Nearly the weekend


   A very busy day today. With it being the 1st day of the month, I had some finance reports to do. It is quite ridiculous really. The team I create the reports for, have access to the data, and the reporting tools, but claim to ‘not have the skills’ to manipulate that data into … Continue reading Nearly the weekend

Monday, over and done with


   It’s been, shall we say, an interesting day. It all started very well, then the IT lot turned up. A large number of computers were being replaced today. They get ‘refreshed’ about every 3 years (or 5 in our case) and today was our day. Of course, everyone had something to complain about !!!! … Continue reading Monday, over and done with

Weekend all gone


   A quiet day today. R*** had a lie-in until 07:30 which was nice. No jobs to do today, except making the dinner. I pegged out a few more strawberry plants. That will make about 8 new plants all together. I don’t really know how we will over winter them. I think, I’ll leave them … Continue reading Weekend all gone

Another day ….


   Another busy day today. Six more PDAs in service, and would you credit it, the fools trashed two others. In fact one of the one that was trashed, could only have been in use for les than an hour. Funny thing though, the guy that was using it, is one of the most respected … Continue reading Another day ….

A successful day


   Today went pretty much as expected. I managed to get nine PDA’s installed and back into service. So I’m the hero of the day again. Then to top it all the remaining thirteen PDA’s came back from repair. I’ll put another seven into service tomorrow, which should mean more praise. If only I took … Continue reading A successful day
