Pointless, odd, ramblings

Tried posting a couple of days ago but it just wasn’t happening! I have been getting crap loads of spam to my blog recently (although it’s died down the last couple of days). I’m talking like 70 spam comments a day….ridiculous – of course they spam as much as they like cause I’m strictly approval only HAHAHAHA suck it up scum!


Been desperately trying to play The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion with no great success. Didn’t realise my computer wasn’t up to the job (graphics card/DVD drive)...however I did find this funky programme Oldblivion which will let you play. The characters sound like chipmunks but I’m not sure if that’s because of the programme or the dvd drive. Well anyways the game crashes quite a bit so I decided to try downloading the patch – unfortunately the oldblivion programme wouldn’t run anymore and I had to uninstall and reinstall the whole game – which now runs really really slowly. So I’ve uninstalled it again and deleted the Oldblivion programme – and then I’m going to reinstall/redownload. I get the feeling I’m on a lost cause – but I am persistant! I think I’m going to read the FAQ for oldblivion


Well no new albums bought however I have just purchased these
just imagine a black nano with a semi clear rubber skin from ebay. :) I love ebay


Inkheart by Cornelia Funke: A story about a girl who’s father can read characters and objects out and into books. It’s for young adults and a good read.

Saucer by Steven Coonts: A team of surveyors uncover a spaceship buried in solid rock. The story is basically an adventure story about people trying to get the UFO - really the only sci fi thing about it is the actual saucer.


Da Vinci Code Don’t let the hype put you off. An enjoyable time killer which keeps pretty faithful to the book!

X-Men 3: The Last Stand Hoping to see this tomorrow. Got all the elements I like in a movie! Action, Science Fiction, good looking muscled blokes!

    Web Wise

Bebo.com: The next big net craze (after myspace?). You can also put in what school you went to. which I did, but I didn’t recognise the majority of names listed there!

I shall leave you with a picture of my dad – I had been looking for one of my brother as well cause they really do look alike sometimes.
Sometime in the late 60's early 70s

Down with this sort of thing!

Okay WTF? Spammed to death today :| fucking arseholes! Death to spammers

I have come to the conclusion that the entire aim of the crap that is Big Brother is to get people to shag on tv…..

Anyhow – sums the who Da Vinci Code controversy nicely ;)

Careful now!

Reading like a daemon

Dontcha love it when your computer decides to spontaneously reboot?

Back to work yesterday! Sadly I was just being screwed over tax and NI :(. I also seem to have this mountain of work which I just can’t seem to reduce. Blah!

Anyways…on with the show


The Hour of the Gate (Spellsinger Series) – Alan Dean Foster: To be honest I read this book a bit too fast to do it justice. I certainly enjoyed, thought it was a bit meatier than the first novel and a little more serious. I have the rest of the series to read now which I’m looking forward too.

Storm Front (Dresden Files) – Jim Butcher:
Well not quite finished this book. It’s a really good read. Think Columbo crossed with Charmed – only in a good way. Definitely recommend it!



Hmm weird sci-fi/horror/comedy. Reminded me a bit of Critters (humour wise) with typical dawn of the dead type gore. So I enjoyed it ;) . I especially liked the deer fighting back!
