Pollen == EVIL!

I’m so fed up with hayfever I’m posting this at work on my phone.

It’s horrible. I can’t stop sneezing, my eyes are watering, my nose is running & my head feels bunged up.

The hayfever tablet has done bugger all to help.

Bah!

Internets!

It’s finally fixed! (Go Sky!)

Rang Sky on Friday (using a direct to their CST department) and got in touch with a superb bloke who, after trying every single thing he could to fix the problems there and then, eventually realised it was either a problem at our end (which we were pretty certain it wasn’t) or a problem at the Exchange (which we were pretty certain it was).

So he sent off an order to BT Openreach to send an Engineer to our local exchange to yank our connection from whatever computer/server/thing it was hooked up to, and connect it to a different computer/server/thing to see if that would help.

(I should mention here that, although I’m a geek/nerd when it comes to computers, laptops, websites & so on, how ADSL works completely baffles me)

BT Openreach don’t work on weekends, so we had to wait until today (Monday the 9th of July 2012) before the connection change was done. When I got back from work, the Router showed that the ADSL connection had died a couple of hours ago, as the current connection’s uptime was 2-3 hours ago. However, it was connected at 4096kbps down & 512kbps up – a low slower than the 8MB we were getting before.

So I rang them up, and after changing a few settings, the router reconnected and a few seconds later, connected to the internet! Not after 2-3 like before! It’s all fixed! w00t!

In other news, full access has finally been restored to my Minecraft Server, but the old rule still applies – you only get access if I know you! If you know me & want access to my Minecraft Server, just send me a message & Ill give you access to it.

The British Grand Prix happened over the weekend, apparently the Qualifying was a bit of a washout, oops, damn you British weather. 😛 I’m gonna watch it later, or tomorrow. Whenever the missis is out, or I’ll never hear the last of it. She hates F1.

Well done to Murray btw – he didn’t win, but he did damn good to get 2nd place and played a fine game against Federer – the only problem is, Federer was in his element and pretty much unbeatable.

Had my HTC One S replaced again – it was having Wifi troubles. The replacement is a different model though, so hopefully they one will fair better.

That’s about it really.

Fucking BT

I’m fucking livid with BT – every time they do any work on our local phone Exchange they fuck our internet for a week, sometimes two weeks. It’s fucking infuriating.

It’s happened again tonight & I swear if it’s not working when I get up in the morning BT are getting a fucking furious me on the phone. I don’t care that I’m with Sky, it’s BT’s fucking staff that are fucking shit up so they are who I’m going to shout at.

It happened a few weeks ago & it took them 10 days to fix it. I’m not waiting another 10 days for BT to do fuck all – this problem is being fixed once and for all.

Obviously I’ll tell Sky too – they can shout at them too so they’ll have it coming from both sides.

Had my One S replaced – the signal was crap on it & it was repeasdly sending text messages. The replaced one seems much better. Haven’t tested the text messages yet but the signal seems better.

Silly Calls

Not long ago I had three phone calls on my mobile.

But the other person’s phone had rung too, as if I’d called them, but I hadn’t, as my mobile had rung showing their number.

Two were from companies in Taunton – the second one explained to me that they’ve been having these calls all evening, which I was then forced to explain to the poor woman who’s mobile was the third call.

I’m hoping that someone’s just guessed my number and decided to have a laugh with this, but if it is someone who knows me & has my number I’d like you to not do it again please, especially not at the time the calls were made, which was 11:57PM, 11:59PM & 12:01AM.

I just hope it doesn’t happen again or I may have to go down the pain in the arse route of having my number changed.

So. Fucking. Hungover…

Went out last night. Never been so drunk in all my life. I’m pretty sure I’ve said that before, so it appears I’m drinking more and more every time I get drunk. I’m not quite sure if this is a good or a bad thing.

However, the hangovers are getting worse, and they are very much a bad thing. I’m also failing to remember a fair bit of stuff that happens the night before. Usually not good, except when I’m told I did something funny or silly. XD

I’m hosting another website. The more the better, the server is just as quick and it can happily hold many many more websites so if you need a website or a Minecraft Server hosting , please click here! I’m also editing this site a bit, making its SEO better.

My Minecraft Server is pretty much ready, so I’ll be restoring access within the week. 🙂

I’ve almost run out of Creme Eggs again & I can’t afford to buy another box of them. I am a very sad panda. 🙁

My contract with O2 was almost up, so I got an upgrade. The Sony Xperia S was what I chose, but within 3-4 days I had phoned O2 asking for a swap. The Xperia was shite, it crashed a lot, the software wasn’t very good & I couldn’t Root it! So I asked what phones they did that were the same price as what I was paying for the Xperia and they made me rather happy: the HTC One S.
The One S is a pretty awesome phone, very powerful, ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) is rather awesome & Sense 4 is good too. The camera’s pretty rad & the battery life is BETTER (how I will never understand) than on my old Desire HD. Also, I could Root it! So I’m a rather happy camper at the moment. 😀 All I need to do now is try to find a custom ROM that I can install on to it, as I’m still running the Stock ROM. We’ll see…

Getting my hair cut tomorrow, so pictures will obviously be provided. Probably on Facebook, but I’ll link to them on here.

Just seen this: http://www.forumula1.com/news/ecclestone-f1-on-free-tv-could-end-in-britain/
Not happy. Ecclestone is a fucking wanker.

I’m off to play Minecraft. Have fun. 😛

The Girl With The Pink Hair

Me & Katie were in Asda when a young boy being pushed around in a trolley spotted Katie’s pink hair and, at the top of his lungs, screamed “MUMMY THAT LADY HAS PINK HAIR, LOOK AT HER HAIR!” He then proceeded to scream to the rest of the family to come and look, who were in a different isle, by yelling “HEY GUYS COME LOOK AT THE PINK HAIR!”. It was royally cute. The poor mother was apologising profusely but we were fine with it. ^.^

I got 30 more Creme Eggs. XD Nom nom nom. ^.^

Minecraft Server is almost complete! All I need to do is paste in my massive trap (not an easy feat) and then protect it with a region. Once I’ve done that, I can start letting people back in. Again, keep an eye on here for news.

Did anyone see the fire at Williams garage after the Spanish Grand Prix? It was pretty bad. Apparently it was caused by an electrical fault in the fuel pump? Regardless, it was amazing to see people from the other teams jump in and help, it just shows how great sportsmanship is at F1. I hope the few people that were injured or hurt & had to go to hospital are okay.

I’ve edited this post a little and corrected the few mistakes I made. It was 4AM when I made it… 😛

Apologies

I can only offer my apologies for such a long time between posts. Once again, it’s due to my lazyness. And that when I remember to make a post, it’s about 4:30AM & I’m half asleep.

At least this time I started to post this before 4AM.

F1 Grand Prix in Spain this weekend! Once again hoping for a McLaren 1-2, but we’ll see how Qualifying goes shall we? I’ll probably post my thought of the Qualifying & the race on here, although expect a delay – I’m working both days. :/

Minecraft! I am continuing to work on my new Map, doing a lot of work I probably should be doing later, and not actually pasting my Traps in so I can re-open the Server… Yeah, I’m an idiot. Anyway, this will be rectified as I’m now getting moaned at by a few people who want to go back on. Namely Slashlife & Katie’s little brothers. As always, there’s more information on my Minecraft Page.

Me & Katie have just started watching The Killing. It’s really good. Also, Ringer is looking to be pretty awesome too. I’d highly recommend both.

Katie had an awesome birthday weekend, lots of pics and videos will be on Facebook shortly.

The late post

I should have posted this ages ago, but laziness, falling asleep on the settee & things coming up meant it’s late. I won’t lie, it was mostly laziness. Oops. 😛

Just as a warning, this is going to be a big post, there’s a lot of things that have happened recently that I want to put in this post.

Oooh, hale stones. ^.^

A while ago while at work, someone came in from the local Natwest & while I was serving them I asked if Natwest were doing Contactless Cards. She said she didn’t know, but that if she found out she’d tell me. (We take them at work)

So, a week or so later I went to the branch & was served by the same lady that I’d served at work. She told me that the day after I’d asked her about the cards, they’d got an e-mail about them! So she ordered me one & it turned up yesterday! So I have a Contactless Card! w00t!

Starting work on my Minecraft Server today, to get the new map up & running and to copy the things from the old map to the new one. No idea how long it’ll take, but while I’m working on it, the Map will not be accessible to anyone. Once I’ve got it working then all the previous permissions will be restored. Obviously I’ll keep you informed on here AND on the Minecraft page.

I made a YouTube video explaining how to use Meltus’ Android App Volume+. It’s crap (I made it, of course it’s gonna be crap). You can’t see me in it, only my HTC Desire HD. When Meltus releases a version that fixes the few tiny bugs currently in the app, I may make a new one.

Ooh, lightning. ^.^

A few posts back I put this:

I’m possibly going to be doing something I’ve never done before tomorrow. If I get to do it, I’ll post about it on here.

I’m not so sure I should do it now. Basically ‘cos it’s lame and boring. Let me explain:

I have an app on my phone called SleepMeter that I use to track how much sleep I’m getting at night. I can tell it if there were any holes in the sleep, if I had any aids (music, tv, etc), if there were any hindrances (someone snoring, hot, cold, ill, etc), and tags (work night, other random crap). It makes a html page with a load of stats and some graphs which I was going to put on the site. But I probably won’t now, as I can only assume no-one would look at it.

Me & Katie just watched the end of Carnivàle. The ending was really good, but it’s a fucking damn shame that it was canned! It’s a damn good show & was thoroughly enjoyed by both me & Katie. Well, I assume she enjoyed it. However, we’re watching No Ordinary Family at the moment, that’s pretty good.

I refused to watch the Bahrain F1 Grand Prix. The race should never happened. And it should have been cancelled when a member of the public got shot. Also, because Force India didn’t do Friday Practice to make sure their staff were safe, they weren’t shown AT ALL on the TV on Saturday’s Qualifying. Bernie, you’re a fucking cock.

I can’t remember what else to put. >.< I really should post more often so I remember what I wanna put! Or type into some sort of text file so I can remember. Anyway, I’ll leave this as is, I have a Minecraft Server to kick.
