Ok so I get time to sit down and type something into this journal. I enjoyed
my birthday yesterday and a good time was had by all.
Nandos was nice and we had a good little group of people there who I
actually wanted there. After that I went to see Chris and Marie since they
did not have enough money this week to go to my party. Chris was trying to
install fedora core 3 on his machine except he had burnt the .iso file to a
cd in an iso9660 file system so the cd had one file fc__core3_1.iso on it. I
explained that an iso image was exactly that; an image of the sectors that
should have been written to the cd. After I showed him the “burn image”
option in Nero he was fine and his disks worked.
I never thought people could get confused about iso images but I guess they
do. I have had a cd burner since 1997 so it’s all old hat to me.
Didn’t have a lot for dinner last night except for a piece of toast and
Gemma did not sleep well last night; her suspected sleep apnia was playing
up and she couldn’t breathe properly. Obviously Faith Hill doesn’t suffer
from this problem. <boom boom i’m here all journal>
I had to drag Gemma out of bed this morning for Uni training she had to do.
I hate doing this especially when she hasn’t slept well. I got up and had
coffee and kept her company till she left. I promptly went to bed and back
to sleep and slept till 11.
I was feeling lazy today for no reason I can acertain.
I did however start learning to use sound forge which is a lot of fun. Nicki
rang to tell me she had received the first 3 Harry Potter books which is
I tried to put the sveasoft firmware into the linksys using bootwait but the
image was too large you can’t tftp an image over 3 megabytes into the
router. Probably something to do with the boot loader.
I put the image in over the web interface with bootwait enabled so I could
back out the image if it shit itself.
I read up on the screwdriver shorting pins tricks to revive a brick router
and made sure I knew where the pointy screwdrivers were.
firmware went in without a hitch.
Gemma got shoes and went to the bank along with getting dymo tape. I was
I keep trying to tell her how wonderful she is but she gets all embarrased
especially if anyone else is present. Not sure what to do about this.
I guess I just might have to be a little less over the top re my wife to
others even if I _do_ think she’s great.
No sex since early Sunday morning but I hope to fix that tomorrow sometime.
We get tired and our sleeping patterns drift apart and we don’t get to it.
something I intend to work on.
Went over to see Chrissy and Alastair which was a lot of fun. We had Hj’s
and a milkshake. Rythm is talking fairly well and is a lot more social. We
played with the footage from the wedding dvd. Only a year late I know but we
need to dump it off onto dvd from dv-camcorder tapes.
Off to meet a new friend tomorrow in the city. That will be lots of fun. A
bit nervice but I guess that is to be expected.
Anyway I guess I will head off to bed and write more tomorrow.
