Creative Zen Touch

I finally got my new toy through this week, a Creative Zen Touch.

Of the reviews I'd read it seemed like the Creative player has many advantages over the IPod and since I've bought other creative products and been very happy with them I thought why not.

Encoded in pi

I've seen a few sites now that talk about pi (the mathematical number that relates the radius of a circle to it's circumference and area) and how things can be said to be encoded in it and as it's got me thinking quite a lot I thought I'd write about it.

Aleksi Virta - ..Meets Torsti at the Space Lounge

My first music reccomendation.

I've been listening to Aleksi Virta - ..Meets Torsti at the Space Lounge pretty much constantly throughout the last couple of weeks and it's definitely something that I'll stick on my MP3 player when it finally arrives. It's a mixture of a jazz/funk/electronic sound and it's very very cool. The music is very catchy, in no time you'll be humming along to the instrumental and it just begs you to dance around the place with it's beat. It's just right to relax with in the summer sun.

Pick your favourite player, crank up the sound and stream or download it if you're on a slow connection. It's definitely worth it in my opinion.

Do Magpies Hide Food?

I just watched a very strange thing. A fat magpie outside my window managed to find a huge piece of bread on the lawn. Rather than stand there and eat it piece by piece it appeared to try to hide it. It seemed to shove it into the ground and then try and hide it by covering it with bits of loose grass. It even seemed to dig up bits of growing grass to place on top of it.

Do magpies hide food? I confess I don't know but it certainly seems like it.

I Answered the "Call of Duty" and Died - Several Times

I bought a copy of Call of Duty a few days ago and today was the first chance I had to install it and give it a go. I know it's odd for a woman to enjoy war related stuff but I've never been what you would call typical. I don't play many first person shooters so I'm uniformly bad at them. I think the last time I played was multiplayer with my brothers about a year and a half ago (I could beat one semi regularly but not the other - die evil brother die!) so that gives you some idea of my overall experience.

And I'm on the Floor

An odd thing happened to me this morning. I woke up at around 04:30 needing the bathroom so I turned on the bedside lamp and moved to stand up and get out of bed. The next thing I know I'm sprawled partially on the floor having had my leg just kind of collapse out from under me for no apparent reason.

Can I add images easily?


This is a test of the image_assist module to see how it works and whether it will break my layout if I don't resize the image and make it small.

Woohoo, it doesn't!

This spider was nestled in the gap between the edge of my window and the window frame. Actual size is about an inch long.

Pinging Sites?

Hopefully, this site should now be pinging a few of the blog aggregators. I've taken the plunge and decided to start opening this up a bit more for other people to read (if they wish).

It's not really important to me at the moment - I've managed to go about 5 weeks with only really me knowing about the existence of the site so at the moment I'm not too bothered. It's not like I update everyday. Personally I can't be bothered unless it's something even vaguely important to me. Random quizes of the moment have never really interested me all that much. Maybe in a few weeks time I'll be one of those people that measure their worth on how many people have commented on their ramblings ;-) Personally I don't think what I have to say is that important!

Update didn't work :-(

I've singularly failed to manage to upgrade the site from Drupal 4.5.2 to 4.6. After dropping the database, reloading it, faffing with files, dropping the database a couple of times more and having it screw up time and time again I finally gave up for now and reloaded everything that was up before.

I have no clue why it didn't work as the update script seemed to work but never mind :-(

Not as well as it could have maybe

Well the interview went OK. Not as good as it could have as there were facility specific questions that I didn't really know the answer to. I tried to compromise by talking about how I would have answered the question for the Bristol site but I'm not sure whether they found this acceptable or not. I did manage to get a tour around the facility though and my interview did take slightly longer than the requisite half hour so maybe that points to it going better than I think.
