It's still there, it's still kind of ticking over at the moment but things are very much in the balance at the moment - missus is very, erm, how to say this nicely, jealous, paranoid and insecure. Yep that about covers it.
Starting to get pissed off about little things ... she see's it as perfectly acceptable to go through my e-mail whenever she feels like it and get in a mood about some spam or something that I received years ago and hasn't been deleted ... I'm a very lazy mail reader - sometimes I delete sometimes I don't. Fact I've been moving mail systems every couple of days while I sort out the network at home hasn't helped either.
Band life ... Check ... Yep that's still going strong ... had a couple of gigs in the past month, the last one at the Hertford Marquee was a particularly good one even though the singer bust a string on his guitar half-way through, but this just seemed to improve his front-man act and involved rolling on the floor, standing on the drum riser and playing my bass with the mic at various points, so all in all a pretty good gig.
Been asked back to support a band called The Imperial Vipers at some point, who are a pretty decent local band and are also in the process of signing a record deal. Interesting.
Gone in for a couple of festival/concert support slots through competitions etc. Trying to play at the Gosforth Festival up near Newcastle with the likes of Therepy, Goldie Looking Chain and others, plus there was a competition on Virgin to play support for Bon Jovi at Milton Keynes bowl.
Work life ... Check ... Still going well - that's part of the reason I haven't been posting here that often - I've been trying to stop being distracted by the web etc during the day, and at night if I dare to spend longer than 10 minutes on the computer when I'm not working then she gets in a mood with me, but my boss is on holiday for the next week or so, so I'm going to try and let the web filter back into my working day.
Other stuff .. Check ... Well there is other stuff anyway. Was surprised by Sven's decision to take Theo Walcott to the World Cup considering he's never seen him play a first-team game for Arsenal, and in fact has just seen him play a 11 v 11 half-pitch training game. Still, apparantly he's got more legs than Henry, so hopefully Henry will stay longer and help train him up.
Was pleased by our result Sunday against Wigan, and even though I'm a Gunner, was unsure about the decision not to postpone the Spurs-West Ham match ... not too sure if the result would of been any different. Anyway, here's to May 17th when (hopefully) we'll beat Barca in Paris and convince Henry to stay at Highbury^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^HEmirates
Want to try and get down to some of the matches, but the different options for tickets etc. just seems to confuse me. Should I be a Red Member, a Green Member, a Gold Member, how much is each membership ... confusion ... plus they have no details for tickets at Emirates as far as I can see.
Home network ... Check ... got 2 PC's, laptop all going out through a Dell dual Xeon workstation I'm using for my gateway and development machine ... also managed to get PXE network booting working, so just need to figure out how to get Wake-on-LAN working and I'll be happy. Doing transparent proxy for the web on it as well, and zapping of ad's.
Hmmmm, well think that's it covered ... I will of course try and post more regularly as well.
