^^^^ This looks absolutely amazing!

This is just a “Book Trailer”, but this could so easily be made into a movie. I would definitely go see this at the cinema and buy it on DVD if it were made into a film.

Although this is just a Book Trailer, the production on it is amazing! The acting isn’t half bad either. I really really hope they make it into a film!

Hello, IT… 4

Aug20

There are certain phrases that I come across fairly regularly while working in IT that really annoy me. I’ve tried to list them below. A few of these aren’t things I get regularly, but annoyed me enough that they needed mentioning.

“You’re good on the computer…”

Seriously… It’s not a fricking saxophone.

“The Internet is broken!”

Trust me if the Internet was broken there would be world wide panic. Not just you not being able to access Facebook.

“Are you on Email?”

What? Are you on telephone? Are you on post? I use Email, yes. I’m not on it!

“Inbox me…”

This one really gets me riled. Actually, now you’ve said that I’m thinking of Junk mailing you from my sent mail…

After reformatting a computer: “Have you put Google on it?”

Ahhhh… I knew there was something I missed.

“Send me the Earl”

The… what? Do you mean URL? Hi Earl!


“The guy in the shop was using this to touch the screen. Why doesn’t it work when I do it!”

Because that’s the antenna for your wireless card. He just happened to have one in his hand when he was showing you the computer. He was using the mouse, but just pointing at the screen with the antenna. You don’t have a touch screen monitor.

“Which one’s the right mouse button? Do you mean the one on the right, or the “correct” one?”

Yes, seriously.

“I’m not very good at following instructions…”

After trying to get a client to insert a USB stick… for 45 minutes.

“HOW THE F*CK DO I MAKE A NEW FOLDER?!!!!”

“Right click…”

“WHAT?””

“Right click, and click New Folder…”

“WHERE THE F*CK’S THAT?!!! ”

“Just here, look. Where I’m pointing”

“WE’RE NOT ALL F*CKING GENIUSES YOU KNOW!!!”

Asking someone to make a new folder.

“I don’t understand all that computer crap!”

Thanks. Thank you for referring to my trade, the reason why I get up in the morning, as “that computer crap”. Next time I go to the hospital, watch the nurses face when I refer to her job as “that nursing shit”.

This one requires a little explanation. All my friends were on holiday together and I didn’t go as I couldn’t afford it. The Dad of one of the girls was having problems with his PCs (he’d installed the same virus riddled software on both PCs) and I said I’d take a look. As he was the owner of a care home and his PCs contained sensitive information, I wasn’t allowed to take the PCs away with me. Fair enough. Monday night, I was there from 7pm to 10pm. I didn’t have what I needed to fix it, so I needed to come back the next day with the right stuff. Tuesday I was there from 7pm to 4am! I had to be in work for 8:30am! While packing my stuff up, he was pleased that I’d singled handedly saved his business from ruin and retrieve all the files that were nearly lost to the ether, however just before leaving, he was a little annoyed about something. He was a little annoyed that I’d not retrieved a hidden folder containing his secret porn stash! I went back on the Thursday night to fix a few more issues and to set up his home surveillance system to work on his PC (7pm to midnight). I’d spend 17 hours of my week fixing his PCs. He then text me on the Friday night because his PC wouldn’t play a bastard DVD. I ignored it and never went back.

One thing I’ve learned so far about “being good on the computer”, is that no one thanks you when it works, it’s automatically your fault and your responsibility to fix it when it’s broke and people huff and puff at how long it’ll take to fix it!

Review: Moon 0

Moon (2009)

Moon (2009)

I watched Moon on DVD the other night. I’d heard good things on other review sites so I thought I’d give it a watch. After watching it, I don’t feel this film got all the attention it deserved while it was showing at the cinemas. I go to the cinemas regularly, and I can’t really remember this film being advertised. The first I’d heard of it was when it came out on DVD and I’m glad I bought it.

The film itself isn’t exactly action packed. It’s not one of those thrills and spills kind of films. The film progresses very gently and unravels itself very carefully, answering all the questions and revealing more about what’s going on. The film is set on a moon base manned by Sam Bell, an all round good guy with a young family, and a robot called GERTY. He’s stationed there on a 3 year contract to keep the mining operations running smoothly. Near the end of his 3 year contract, he starts hallucinating, seeing a young girl. On a trip to one of the lunar rovers, he sees the girl is the dust and crashes his rover and suffers bad injuries. He then wakes up in the infirmary and this is where everything starts falling apart for Sam. I really don’t want to spoil the film and I recommend buying it on DVD.

This film will be one of those cult classics, and it’s popularity is only going to grow in time as word of mouth gets round.
