Dark Light

Since I have discovered Blogger (click the link below for details) I am using that for the diary. It still means I compose it on my notebook, type it up at home, and then paste it in, but it means I no longer have to wade though my HTML to do it. Which is nice.

Anyhue, Yesterday’s Diary entry:

Some how, in the infinate causality of the universe and such, I managed to spill tea on my Keyboard. Now, the M$ Keyboard I use is probably one of the only M$ Products I use on a reguler basis (along with my Intelieye mouse and Word97) and I have no complaints whatsoever, it is comfortable, useable, and totally unwaterproof. Or, more precisly, Tea proof. Therefore the blasted thing is sitting about three feet to my left, on my windowsill, after having been washed clean, drying in the Sunderland Sun, which, sadly, is currently hiding behind a bank of clouds in the same way it does most days.
So I am typing on my old Acer non ergonomic, non nice, almost non-usable keyboard cheifly because the Shift keys & keypad wern’t working on the other. This limits todays entry.


“One more week to go,
One more week of sorrow,
One more week until we break for easter,
6 more days tomorrow!”

You could call this a Hard Week. With one assignment deadline this week, two next week, the locking of my Network Account, as well as what can, and should, basically be described as “Other Stuff” I want to go home, Now.

I have been forced to add another name to the Hall of Shame (which I may even post) of mail order suppliers that are, to coin a phrase, totally useless. That company is Addons.co.uk. Don’t even go there, don’t buy anything. I ordered a DVD Drive from them about a week ago and it still hasn’t arrived. Not a suprise, really, 28 days for delivery and all that, but I discovered that they removed the money from my Visa on the same day I sent my first complaining E-Mail. Odd that. If I don’t get a reply to my e-mail tommorrow, I am going to have to phone them Monday, which I don’t want to do, mainly because I will have to do it with my Mobile, and that will cost a bomb. Gah. Horrible Companies.

In other news, Mandrake has been ordered, and my computer will be penguined soon.
