Sci-Fi Sunday: Logan’s Run 0


Logan’s Run is a 1976 science fiction film based on the novel of the same name by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. It depicts a dystopian future society in which population and the consumption of resources are managed and maintained in equilibrium by the simple expediency of killing everyone who reaches the age of thirty, preventing overpopulation. The story follows the actions of Logan 5, a “Sandman,” as he “runs” from society’s lethal demand. continue reading »

Male Bathroom Etiquette 0



I’ll have to disagree with the talking part in this one. I think talking in the toilets is OK as long as you are not talking over someone. I hate it when the guys at either ends of the urinals are talking to each other and you’re in the middle. It puts me right off.

I struggle to pee in public urinals as it is. I suffer from stage fright and just can’t go! So people having a conversation over me makes it worse!

My week in the snow 0


I can honestly say that for the first time in a long while, I am genuinely happy in both my personal life and my work life.

I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because of the snow we’ve been having recently has really cheered me up. I tend to get quite down in winter as it’s cold and miserable, but the snow has really cheered me up. It’s been snowing like mad here for the last week or so. I absolutely love snow. I think snow has this magical quality that makes people feel like kids again. Well, at least it does with me anyway. I would honestly love it to snow every day for the next 100 years if it meant we never had another heat wave. I’ve always preferred winter over summer. If you’re cold, it’s easier to warm up, than cool down when you’re hot. Plus, if I’m hot, my skin explodes!

It’s been that bad this week that I’ve had to catch the bus to work. I say I have to catch THE bus to work, but what I actually mean is that I have to catch TWO buses to work; One to take me in to town, the other out of town. I haven’t caught the bus since March when my car was in for MOT, but I assumed that everything would pretty much be the same as it was then. I was wrong. After I got off the bus in town and started to walk to my other bus stop, I noticed that the bus stop had gone! They’d only bloody moved it! OK, they’d only moved it down the road, but I only found that out AFTER I’d walked to the other side of town to the other stop. It sounds like I’m ranting, but I’m not.

On Wednesday I came home after trudging through the snow and being stuck on the buses to a nice warm dinner. To me, that’s perfection. I don’t get the same satisfaction in summer having a salad after a hard day.

A lot of people have been constantly moaning about it and wish it would go away. I know that the second it goes away, I’ll revert back to being a mardy arse.

I really need to start my Christmas shopping. I literally have no ideas on what to buy people this year! None. Zip. The only Christmas shopping I’ve done so far is buying presents for myself. Not in a selfish way, but in a “Buy what you want and I’ll give you the money for it” kind of way.

Anyone any exciting plans for this weekend? I’m off to the pub tomorrow night with a mate, and that’s about it.

I need to take both my sites down for essential maintenance at some point, but I won’t bore you with that.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Stupid dog shit laptop! 0


I think I have a virus on my laptop and I have no idea how to get rid of it. It’s been acting up for a couple of days now. I noticed that I keep getting random tabs opening themselves in Firefox which go to one of those sites that bring up a pop up and won’t let you close it unless you click the OK button. Clicking cancel just brings the message up again, and pressing the X does the same. If you click OK, it brings up a download box. If you click cancel on that it starts the whole thing off again. Stupid thing. Then Windows Host Service crashes and makes my PC look like dog shit.

Doing a system restore hasn’t fixed it. That’s usually fixes 90% of the problems I have like this.

I’m trying to get as much stuff off it as I can and I hope to reformat it at the weekend. The thing is though I’ve got about 100GB of stuff on this hard drive and it’s going to take forever to copy over my Wireless network. Suppose I could always start things off copying then watch a film or something? That’ll pass the time.

So that’s my weekend taken care of then! Yay!

I really want this week to be over. I’m mega busy at work at the minute, but I know that it should all be done and dusted by Friday. So that’s kind of an incentive enough for me to battle on with it. My last job was like this all time and it drove me mental because it was never ending! It was just a constant barrage of shit, whereas at least now I know there’s an end to it 🙂 I might talk about it more on [ESC]ape Testing on Friday, although I have two possible posts in mind already. One is about how outsourcing can’t possibly benefit an organisation and the other is about the Software Testing job market. I’m thinking the latter is more appropriate, but I’m still undecided. I may carry on writing both anyway and queue them up.

I’m working on quite a few posts at the minute as I’m hoping to go on holiday pretty soon. I want to take a break from Blogging for a bit as well just to give me a break and to recharge my batteries, but I don’t want it to affect any of my sites. So I’m writing loads of things now and queuing them up. When I do go on holiday, it will still look like as though writing stuff on my usual Monday, Wednesday, Friday (A post here and on [ESC]ape Testing) schedule when in fact I’ll probably be passed out in a pool of beer and Pringles!

Don’t do what Brownie Don’t Does… 0


I’d been talking to a Girl I met online for a week or so the other week. Things were going OK until I decided to send her a message after my little accident…

So here’s how it went down…

Don’t send girls emails when you have concussion! You’ll only end up looking like… well, me!

D’oh! 0



I concussed myself at work today.

Keep in mind that I work in and office, and my job involves no heavily lifting or rummaging around under desks what so ever I still managed to concuss myself. The metal shutter in the doorway hadn’t been put up properly and I only found this out when my body made it through the door frame but my head didn’t!

I ended up going to the NHS drop in centre at lunch who referred me to A&E for further tests. I thought I’d be OK, but I was really having trouble concentrating, and struggling to see my monitors clearly. I kept getting headaches and feeling really dizzy and almost felt like I needed to be sick.

I just wish someone had filmed it as I bet it looked hilarious! Painful though!

I’m struggling a bit to write this and I can’t look at the screen for very long, so I’m going to keep it really pants, I mean, brief.

Week Round up & Big Booty… 0



Why do people write like this? Surely it takes more time and effort to think and write abbreviations than it does to just write the blooming word that you’re thinking of?

And as for the person reading it, they have to spend longer translating your messaging before they’re able to read it!

It doesn’t make you look big or clever, so stop doing it, please.

I’ve had quite a good week this week. I’ve started work on my new project, which I’ve decided to call “Go Banana!”. Things are going OK with it at the minute. I’ve been tweaking the design this morning and adding widgets and things to it. It looks as thought it’s going to be a lot of hard work, but also a lot of fun at the same time.

I’ve added a Facebook style “Like” button to the site’s posts. If you like what you see… Like it! I’m also adding this to Go Banana! as well.

This made me laugh this week. I like the bit where he says “Big Booty Bitches”!
