Strange Driving Related Stuff

random, travel

Ok so I don’t think I’m very original here, but if I hadn’t seen it yet there is a semi decent chance some of you haven’t either. So I thought I’d share…

I don’t know the origins of this, and I can’t be bothered to look them up right now. But isn’t it funny? If I saw that drive past me I would want a picture of it. In the same way I wanted a picture of the Hummer I walked past earlier that had learner plates on it. Seriously, who learns in a f**king Hummer?

Tech Setup


Belated, but as promised here is my current tech setup. Admittedly, it does not include the two laptops I use, the Asus SeaShell or the Dell Latitude D830 (desk wasn’t big enough to hold the Dell).

I thought it would be nice to annotate it so you know what everything is…

There are 3 things in there which aren’t tech… can you spot them?


Evil Email


I knew my email was evil, but I never realised quite how evil it was…


Billy Talent


Last night I trekked all the way to London town to see Billy Talent at the Brixton Academy. They were excellent!

First up was a band from Canada called Cancer Bats, I have heard lots of their stuff in the past on CD and Spotify etc. But live, not good, partly because the sound was terrible, there was just something about the performance which didn’t quite seem right. Some very fake comments between songs – “Lets make this the best night of our lives”, and others. This led to concerns before Billy T started along the lines of the bad sound quality, however they were totally unfounded.

Billy T sounded great, the mix was just right and they played exceptionally tight. Always helps when you know the 3 albums they have, no songs sneak past. The crowd involvement during Devil on my shoulder worked! Its such a brilliant line, and the melody is just top notch!

You can see more of my pictures here. Were you there?

New Gadget


With the new TV, I’ve connected my desktop up so it acts as the monitor. Its rather good fun having a 32” LCD for Photoshop… but it is also ace for watching Films / TV, as mentioned couple days ago I am watching back through every episode of Doctor Who. The only problem is that this is a 200gb file set and with the other stuff I have on my desktop I do not have enough space for this. My 580gb of HD space is no longer enough.

The only option, buy a new hard drive. Storage is just so insanely cheap these days it was a very simple decision. I jumped onto to check out what is available, and decided that an external drive was the best option. My internal drive is a Seagate Barracuda, and it has always been fine so I have stuck with Seagate, and picked up a 1TB external drive for £73.

The other good news, its not being sent by Royal Mail as per the seller’s website, UPS have it in their van right now on it’s way to me, lets hope it comes before I have to leave the office for #oxtuttle.


This Silly BNP Fiasco


Shhh, I’m sneakily writing a little article on my lunch break, don’t tell anyone from work…

So far today the radio has really annoyed me, all this talk of the BNP being on the BBC’s Question Time tonight, basically it’s all a load of crap. I am 99% against the BNP, what they are and what they stand for. This post is not promoting what they do or what they believe in, it does kind of contradict itself soon though…

Gig Spotlight – Idlewild


I have been a busy boy, gigs here there and everywhere, I will strive to write a bit more about each over the comings days! For now, you will have to settle for a couple of pictures from Idlewild at the O2 Academy Oxford on Sunday night.

Check out the rest on Flickr, or check out where I’ve been / going on my Last.FM account.

Red Revolver


I’m as cool as Crunkfish because I too rule and have completed Red Revolver.

He did it first, and I blame him for me having to play it… what a game!

Oxford Crime Map


Check this little badger out, a map of Oxford with hotzones for where the crime is. The map covers Oxford as a sample because it is typical British city which has a demographic and levels of crime representative of the national average. The crime marked on the map is from November 07 – November 08.

You can see where I live… it’s under the big dark red patch on car crime, I aint surprised, remember this?

N97 Home Screen


What do you have on your home screen? Mine above has the usual clock, date and profile. Underneath this a batch of frequently used contacts (also known as favourites), originally I selected a really bad picture of each person for this, Donna’s is too bad to not censor out. The picture of Hannababe is the exception which proves the rule as I only had good ones of her. Grr.

App wise we have new message, browser, Google maps, Mobbler, contacts, BBC Iplayer, Gallery (which I don’t like), and Dabr.

Any recommendations?

I am currently working on sporting up the background A LOT!

Let me know.
