      After living in 512MB RAM land ever since I first bought my Mac in January 2006, following Macworld 06's announcement of Intel iMacs, I have finally as of today upgraded memory.

      From 512MB to 2GB.

      I feel as if I've been living in a dark room and these two little sticks have turned on a light.

      Finally, I can actually work without everything grinding to a disappointing halt.

      Hmm...

      Not only do I have a RoosterPedia article, and am in a secret love affair with Chelsea, but I am infact a "Famous User". Awesome!

      Now, if only I could make my love affair with Chelsea a reality... oh, I'm sorry, am I still talking?

      I've been tackling this Immigration Assessment for the United States for a while now, and there's no end in sight. I now need to find out where my dad was born. He hopes that in withholding this information from me he can stop me from leaving the country. Yeah...

      Nonetheless I have most of the form (I hope, it doesn't tell you how many pages there are...) completed. My CV looks disastrously poor, but since I've not even left school yet, I've not had much opportunity to flesh that out.

      *receives text*

      Oh, born in London. That's interesting.

      So yes, I'm hopeful that it works out. If I'm not "eligible", I guess I'll have to pick up a job here for a while to fill the CV. Unless... I don't know if working as a Web Developer in my spare time really counts. I mean, I get paid, but it's not as if I operate under a business. I'm not "legit" as it were.

      I bet if I applied for Canada they'd be more than willing to accept. :/

      The Writers Guild of America has gone dark.

      My response to this: hell yeah. Writers are getting completely screwed, getting "4 cents per DVD sale". Come on, that's terrible. Sure, this means that Heroes and Battlestar Galactica and potentially Lost have come to a standstill, but I don't care. This is worth it.

      As for Heroes = season finale December 3rd! Finally I can put this misery of a show behind me.

      iTunes Store Podcasts on Your iPhone / iPod Touch.

      So yeah... I was bored and already had the store decryption code so I whipped this up. It lets you search iTunes Podcasts from your iPhone and stream episodes directly over the net.

      Also Digg it!

      My brand new iPod touch came today. Woohoo! Also, I've jailbroken it and it is amazing. Mail, Weather, MSN, AIM. It's the awesomeness. Nottingham ain't looking too sunny however. That's a bummer.

      Go listen to Still Alive, the song from the credits of Portal. Totally for the win.

      My brand new 16GB iPod touch is now in the mail.

      Overall I've spent £479 just to get a single iPod. *sigh*

      In other news, I went to Machinima Europe in the weekend. I chilled with Gavino, Burnie and Jason for a while. It was amazingly cool, and they're such good people. I'm really thankful they let me hang out with them and I had a blast.

      Gav took many photos which I'm sure he will post and ridicule me with later.

      Oh, also for his benefit, the serial number of my old iPod touch was 9C73786AW4N. Yes, I DID actually have an iPod.

    • Abridged Series Site in Emergency Room

      11 years ago

      Charliez

      At approximately 8:54pm GMT today, the server which holds the Abridged Series website was choked to death. The hard drive in the server failed and soon after was pronounced dead. The server has now been wheeled into ER and is undergoing a dangerous heart transplant surgery. We do not know how long this downtime is expected to take, but needless to say, he may even die on the table.

      Our thoughts and prayers are with Server #197 and his family members. Please share your respects. We'll keep you informed when we hear anything new.

      -update-

      For the more literal out there, the site's server's hard drive went kaboom. We're working on a transfer. The site should be out of commission for a good couple of hours, though.

      I'm not saying anything regarding your negative opinion. You are more than welcome to say that you dislike the series and give contructive crticism. What you do, is you completely bash something and basically say "It sucks, it's the worse thing ever."

      Nothing wrong with having an opinion, whether it be positive or negative. It's just the way you say it.
      Maybe you'll learn that when you come to U of Texas. Your attitude won't fly there like it does on here.

      The IT crowd wasn't for techies. It was a broad comedy about techies that anyone would have understood with a few minor references that only techies would get. It was just idiot low intelligence humour based on a guy with a stupid voice and a slobby irish moron.

      Soooo many better UK comedies around.

      The 'wraparound' is called a dustcover. And yeah, I did get one with the HP book. If I turned it upside down the book would a appear completely normal.

      But I'm gonna be traveling soon, so if I bring the dustcover it will likely be damaged. Besides, I like the idea of sitting somewhere, reading my apparently upside down book, and getting to see the occasional look of befuddlement on peoples faces.

      Actually, I'm pretty sure I'm NOT blinded by fanboyism. If that were the case, then I wouldn't love playing XBox as much as I do, since I grew up on Nintendo. Some of my earliest memories are of playing NES and SNES with my cousin. I'm not saying that every little piece of RvB is gold to be worshipped, as I'm not that naive. But I do think that the series is the success it is today because of some phenomenal skill behind the writing staff. If you don't like the humor, then don't watch it; you're obviously far more respected on this site than I am and could easily make do without ever visiting the video section. I for one love the series, and not from fanboyism, but from a true respect for what they do and how they do it. If that's fanboyism to you, then you need to rework your definition, because I'm not a fanboy. To me, fanboy is someone who says "$600 for a PS3 is totally worth it!" without even touching the system. I've touched RvB, mulled over it, worked it around in my head, talked about it with other people, some who have just heard about it and seen a few episodes who also love it (to include episodes from this last season), and the consensus I get from that is that you are a minority. People see RvB as a quality piece of work, highly skilled, highly amusing, EXTREMELY funny, and a great show all around. If you don't think RvB is good entertainment, then what IS good entertainment for you, Charliez?
