This post is a collection of small things that on their own aren’t worthy of individual posts but that I’d like to share anyway.
- I checked on the order status of the Family Guy Season Three DVD on Filmnight.com and found out they were out of stock. So, thanks to your comments, I cancelled the order and bought it a pound cheaper at Play.com who also have it in stock. Should arrive this week.
- Hopefully by this time tomorrow I’ll have my new mobile phone, . A friend is selling it to me second-hand, to replace my Sony Ericsson T300. There’s nothing wrong with it, but the 7250 does have an integrated camera instead of a plug-in one that I never remember to take with me. It’s also smaller and has an FM radio.
- Took some photos in Bradford today, again – here they all are. It was really sunny today with barely a cloud in the sky, though obviously being December and Bradford it was still very cold.
- I’m now running , which makes it a little faster. There are several builds for different processors, M3 happens to be the one that offers the best performance on mine.
- Speaking of performance improvements, it appears that Java 5.0 is somewhat faster than 1.4.2 on my machine. I upgraded today and the various Java things I’ve tried seem to start up much faster.
- And while we’re on Java, I’m now using Azureus as my primary BitTorrent client. While I personally don’t like it due to the kitchen sink nature of its interface, it seems to work better than ABC which for some reason would only let me download/seed one torrent at a time. Since switching, my share rating on UKNova is much, much healthier.
- These next two weeks are going to be very, very busy. I have a presentation to do on Wednesday, a milestone for my final year project tomorrow, a PHP system to write for a group project for next Monday, an essay on software patents in for a week on Friday, plus I have a whole scattering of meetings to go to. That, and there’s promotions on every day of the week at the union’s bars between now and next Friday…
