This is just a small note to demonstrate the asides or notes as I call them. Its for testing purposes, but will help you to see the layout of the content of the blog.
I hate it when things aren’t there when there is no reason why it shouldn’t be!!
Ok, as anyone who has read this blog will know, I want a proper wordpress blog which I can design and customise and make mine, rather than one of these standard template thingys. So I finally found some where I can have one for free and now I have a week off lectures I am taking the chance to set it up. Everything is installed, except for one screen, and there is no reason why it is not there!! I have reinstalled it, tried over and over, but it just won’t flaming appear. Without it I can’t do what I want. I have it all set up on my iBook and it looks good, or at least will do with a bit more tweaking, might post a screen shot later. Plus the people on the help forum are being lame and not replying to my plea for help. ARGH!!!!
Anyway, voice is still here, its getting better, not quite normal but not far off although it gets a bit husky sometimes!!
In a frantic few weeks it now looks like time to sit and reflect on the events. The 3rd and final birthday for a while has just passed, so it could be a bit more peaceful and slightly less stressful, although celebrating is fun, the planning and aftermath isn’t.
After living in the house for 5 weeks, its now time to bring a few considerations into play. The landlord has asked if we are interested in having this house next year. I mean come on, give us a chance to decide, 5 weeks is not nearly long enough to decide. Althogh having said that I do already know who I want to live with, and who I don’t. This may seem odd, but its quite easy really. Whether I will be able to live with who I want to next year is not clear, we shall see I suppose.
OK, I have a new Blog, or at least the beginnings of one. It’s wordpress based and not yet ready for announcement, should I use, but I thought I would let people know. Its a free wordpress blog based on WordPressMU(multi-user) and is hosted by them as well.
I will see if I can get it up and running and working how I want it to before I publish the link. One advantage it does have is that I don’t have to switch to FireFox to do things to it as it works with Safari. Whilst this works with Safari it doesn’t give me all the options so I have to use firefox, which whilst being good for you PeeCee users, isn’t a patch on Safari (well in my opinion).
We shall see what happens.
Ok, so I have now discovered that this new WordPress is not as customisable as i thought, little annoying but hey. What I will do is run the two of them at the same time, and then once I get myself a wordpress real one sorted or this one allows for more customisation, I will let you know. either way, I am adding the link to it on the right somewhere!!
The all new iPod, with video playback and everything. It’s nice!! However unlike the iPodnano I don’t want one quite so much. Probably due to the fact I don’t want to watch video on the go.
It is nice though. I like how it has picked up on the styling of the Nano. Unites the family well. Not that I should really be surprised, this is Apple we are talking about and they do know what looks good!!
Talking of looking good…
How nice is that??
I soooooo want one. In fact it is on my list of things to get before I graduate, obviously to take advantage of the nice student discount I have now, and won’t have after I graduate.
It’s a new step forward for Apple. It’s the first iMac to have a media centre, kind of stepping away from the iMac as a computer and into the iMac as a key part of home life. Acting as a computer and a media centre all built in. To me it serves as something to take over from iPods appeal. Obviouslt the iPod will still be a huge factor, but the new features are centered around Apples new app FrontRow. With the remote that you can now get for the iMac and the built in iSight, it just serves to show Apple are striving to be at the centre of home life. Couple it with Airport Extreme and Express technology and you have one massive and very friendly media centre.
I can’t wait, just wish I had the cash to do it all now. Ah well I will just have to wait. But I so want one!!
As a bit of an aside. It’s nice to see Delirious in the iTMS. Their new single is up as a pre-release, although I can’t buy it at the moment for some reason. They have a few of their old album up as well, although dissappointingly now World Service, which is a superb album!!
Earlier in the year I started using a website called deviantART. Its a brilliant site containing the largest community of creative people on the net. Many of the works caused me to consider setting up my own account. So, guess what, I did.
Here’s the link, as yet I have only created 3 images, although I hope to create more, so when I do they will be posted on here. Go check out the few I have done so far and leave me some comments. Hope you like them.
Wow, blimey 2 in a week!!
Ok, I’ve made a few changes, the title is now Glow. I’m not really sure why, maybe because its quite a dynamic name. Its also got conotations with my christian faith, spreading the word, letting it shine out, making me “glow”. a bit contrived I know but i like it. It also links with my design world. I want my designs to “glow” in the market place type thing, make them stand out. ah well whos knows if it will work.
Anyone know anything about wordpress?? or where I can get cheap (preferebly free) hosting?? I believe I can still use this domain if i find a host and upload to it. Who knows maybe I’m being to geeky. Although I discovered I am a geek, well a techno phille, in my lecture the other day. The module is on technology, and well not many people my age are technophobes, so I guess we are all geeks to a certain extent!! hehe!!
I have no idea where this post is going!! I feel I may have to start to organise this blog a little better before I can justify finding a host etc. I still feel I need a theme for all this, ah well, we shall see shan’t we!!
Once again it has been a few days since I lasted posted. In that time everyone has arrived back at uni which is very cool. Lectures have started, which isn’t so cool, but I’m coping, not got many a week.
Well, I’m now a proper adult. 21. Ooo eck!!
Having posted earlier on the iPod Nano and how sexy and cool they look, I feel the need to add another comment. They are breaking!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOO!!! Thats really not very good. Although Apple assures its only because of a faulty suppliers batch, and affects very few iPod Nano’s, I’m sure it will put several people off buying one. I however still want one, especially as I saw one in the “flesh” the other day. Really nice!!hehe!!
I’m now looking for somewhere to host a proper wordpress blog for me. We shall see how the old finances go and that malarky.
It’s been a few days since my last post so thought I would put a few rambling down!!
I’ve moved into my house at uni now, 3 of us here at the moment, the other 2 are coming tomorrow, hehe!! Quite looking forward to as nearly everyone will be arriving to their various houses tomorrow night. Will be ace to see everyone. Hehe!!
I’m still trying to decide what to do with this blog exactly!! I may just keep it like this, with me randomly writing stuff in it when I feel like it, or I might find away of using it to write articles of somesort, be they political/current affairs or various Mac stuff. Or just who knows!! hehe!!
Anyway muct go now!!
Yesterday saw the launch of Apple’s iPodmini replacement the iPodnano.
Have you seen the pictures, its so nice, and little, and well wow!! Its to small for my music collection to fit on it, heck I’ve nearly filled my 20gb iPod!! Anyway, I will be recommending this baby to anyone who wants a little mp3 player once I get back to uni. Tis so nice!!
Ah the gadgetry!! hehe!!
Surely this will increase Apple’s halo effect being created by the iPod brand. How long before everyone realises that Micro$oft and the thing they call windows are rubbish?? Can’t be far off!! hehe!!
Been a while since I last posted so thought I would say hello. Not doing a lot at the moment, listening to Radio 1, nice song just came on, the new one by X-Press 2 really good song check it out, think its called a little more time or something along those lines. hehe.
Anyway not been doing ‚much, went down to my uni house yesterday, not long til I move in now, woo!! I’m quite looking forward to going back and seeing everyone again!! It should be good and will be nice to see everyone, have missed a lot of them over the summer.
Enough of my ramblings!!
Ok, I’m actaully quite bored at the moment hence the creation of this blog. Should be quite interesting, maybe even amusing!!
Its been an interesting summer, although I am becoming increasingly scared that I am becoming a computer geek!!eek!! Well a mac geek anyway!! Is that ok?? I mean Macs are cool, they look good, work well are better than PC’s, perhaps its ok, I think its ok!! Arrggghhh!!
Anyway we will see what happens with this. I will probs forget about it once I get back to uni, ah yes uni, can’t wait, not long now!! WOO!!hehe!!
