Been listening to some more music, since I asked for suggestions. There's some good stuff there.
Since Christmas I've been listening to stuff on my mobile phone. I got a fancy pair of Bluetooth earphones for Christmas and my mobile is the only Bluetooth music device I've got at the moment. My plan to equip my laptop with Bluetooth went wrong.
The first idea was to get a mini Bluetooth dongle, which I did. After eventually finding some bloody audio drivers for Windows which worked I broke the dongle.
I then bought an internal Bluetooth module that fits in my laptop, but that didn't work. I didn't have the heart to rip the laptop apart again to take the thing out, as it's a PITA.
Before you ask, I did a test of sorts to see if it was working before I put the laptop back together again, but it was difficult to use because of the way you have to pull things apart to install the module.
So, I'm going to have to track down another Bluetooth thing for the laptop now.
Anyway, back to the phone. Listening to music on it is pretty good, although the player is a bit limited. Being a Sony, it's got a memory stick instead of a standard memory card. The memory stick bit of my external card reader is broken now, and because it's a memory stick M2 it doesn't fit in my built in laptop one. The only way left I have of getting music onto it is to use the laptop cable.
Which is quite annoying, as I'd gone Bluetooth to get rid of all the bloody cables that were lying around the place.
I've got a wireless mouse (not Bluetooth, logitech nano) which is great.
Now Wireless music.
Reading that back, it occurs to me that's it's quite boring. Welcome to my life!
Work is shit right now. Too much work, I can never get one thing finished because I have too much to do. I'm going to get a handle on that before it kills me.
I had a very busy time leading up to Christmas. Working late nights and often weekends as well. Then I had nothing to do over Christmas, which was bliss. Like a valve being released I gradually relaxed.
Then a couple of days before I was due to go back, I started getting nightmares and waking up in a cold sweat about the amount of work that I've got to do.
So that was nice.
Every time I think about the amount of work that I've got to do, I want to throw up. I get a swelling of bile and a bitter taste at the back of my mouth.
Went to work Tuesday morning. Cleared all the snow off the car, but by the time I'd finished it was covered again. So I just got in and put the wipers on. There was me and one other person in the office.
I fixed the internet connection, which some fuckwit had broken by changing the patch cable (at the request of our ISP who are also a bunch of fuckwits. 45 collisions on an ethernet connection in 5 minutes doesn't seem excessive to me, don't try and blame it for a poorly performing connection). I plugged the net connection back into the correct socket, have you heard of testing your changes?
The snow had got so bad, it took me over an hour to drive the 2.5 miles back home. I had to take some different routes as I couldn't get the car up some hills because of the snow. I also scratched the car by hitting the front gate when the car slid sideways as I was trying to reverse into the driveway. Good job I don't give a shit.
Wasn't the best time of life, I must admit. J can really be a selfish cow and it fucking pissed me off. She still hasn't twigged that she did anything wrong. She uses other things as an excuse for something she wants to do, so that she can get her own way. It's the sort of behaviour I'd expect from our 11 year old, not a grown woman.
I came this close >.< to just walking out about 3 times. She didn't even notice.
As to loot, I got this awesome pair of Bluetooth earphones from her. Which are the exact pair I asked for, so no complaints there.
I got a pink horn for my bike from my Brother, which is great. Rather than the PARP! noise that you'd expect from it, it gives this rather high pitched SQUEEE! noise. Makes everybody jump. I can't wait to fit it to the bike.
From my parents we got a new video camera, that J had asked for as a replacement for our 10 year old video camera. It's fantastic. Fits in the palm of my hand. Takes video. Nothing too fancy, it's great.
I also got "Unseen Academicals" the new Terry Pratchett. I enjoyed it, but it did leave me a bit cold. There was definitely something missing. It seemed to have been written in parts by different people. The various plot lines seemed to be completely separate, and just sort of mashed together at the end. Not a classic discworld by any means. A bit too tidy.
