My trusty Rover 200 is looking a bit worse for wear and to cap it all nasty things have started to happen under the bonnet. “Get shut of it,” was Granvilles advice, and soon I will. Unfortunately this looks like I’ve spent 3 years tipping 6 grand down the drain.
The JD Power Survey and What Car Magazine are proving useful in narrowing down the options. So far I have a short list consisting of Mazda 323, Toyota Corrolla, and the Honda Civic, with reserve choices of the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra. My Dad recons I should try for a Mazda Premacy, although they seem a bit expensive for my wallet.
For a brief moment yesterday there was suppressed panic. On rebooting my main PC with all its Explorer and SAGGA, and general email content, I was presented with an error message- the PC could not find it’s boot device.
Arrgh my hard disk is fried, I have no way of restoring it and I don’t know where my last backup CD went! Luckily leaving the machine be for a few hours, checking the connections to the disk drive and motherboard, and then trying again found a PC back to full working order.
Find of the weekend is that BBC7 now has a listen again feature. Which is good as the 7th dimention is either on too early or late, and I keep missing the stuff I want to listen to. Been listening to the last episode of “Guards Guards” (not available on BBC audio as far as I can tell) and the begining of “Wyrd Sisters”, two very different Terry Pratchett adaptations.
Must pop out and deliver those final few copies of the “Chapel Allerton Leader”.
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions
The book closest to my right hand is “Carter Beats the Devil”
“I have a sister in Burma.”
Well no actually. But better than the book on my left which was “The C Programming Language” by Kernigan and Ritchie. Do lines of code count as sentances?
Back at work and still sorting through all the email I had while I was away. Keep an eye on the last few weeks, I may add some backdated entries.
