Blogger & Dungeons

On the way in to work this morning I noticed two posters (no way near each, just happened to walk past them), the first one was for the London Dungeon, with a catch phrase of "Make yourself uncomfortable".. The other was for the Hellfire Club. It got me thinking that perhaps the Hellfire Club should make it's catch phrase be "The Other London Dungeon".

I didn't say it was an interesting thought!

On a completely different note, blogger is being annoying at the moment, did a couple of posts to my other blog over the weekend and it's cracking it at me, when I tell it to publish it just sits there "Publishing: 0% complete", yep as I've been typing up this one, it's still 0%. Argh!!!

Happy Easter 2006!

Just a quick message to everyone, hope you're all having a wonderful easter and that the easter bunny brings you delicious chocolate eggs that are the special non-fattening variety... :-)

Or we could just go with the theory that one of my old house mates was a fan of
"Calories don't count if everyone else is eating it"

Giving up on Nokia

Been a while since I've posted (lots of stuff happening in life & work at the moment), but today's post is partially a rant and a statement that I am no longer a fan of the Nokia mobiles :-(

I've had a Nokia for the last 10 years of my life, I've been exceedingly happy with them, they've been solid reliable and I've been able to leave them on for days/weeks/months on end.. But no longer. My latest Nokia (bought just under a year ago) the Nokia 6230 was initially quite good, until that was (about 3 months into owning it) it stopped ringing, yep you read that right, it would not ring, it would vibrate, but not ring (I could also no longer use the 'loudspeaker').. No worries, still under waranty I took it back to get repaired..

Repair process

Now the repair process is quite easy to understand, they simply do a hard reboot, very similar to reinstalling an OS on a computer, one of the side effects is that I lose all my settings/phone numbers/games/photos/music (couldn't listen to it anyway)/etc... Now this is ok, for a once of repair of a glitch, problem was over the last year (including that first 'uck up) my phone stopped ringing about 17 times (not counting or anything). The fix was always the same, and would last for anything from 2 months to (in one extreme case) 4 hours.

As you can imagine, not happy... With either the quality of the mobile phone or the quality of service, if I'm having such consistent problems I should be given a replacement phone, the next model that actually works would be nice..

As such, I'm no longer a Nokia customer, I am now a proud Sony Ericsson owner... And if anyone asks me what mobile they should use, I shall no longer be recommending Nokia phones (well at least not anything made after 2000). And that is the end of my rant.

Missed out on yesterdays daily saying :-( (my bad), it's funny how life gets in the way of plans... :-)

On a different note, looks like my house will no longer be in mine in a months time... Feels kind of odd (but also good)...

Next weeks sayings

Ok, I've got 3 more sayings to track down for next week... And I'm opening up the board for suggestions.

Some have already suggested Strewth! and Oh, yeah!, but given that I've already done a few Aussie ones, I'd like to go with something else, any ideas?
