Overdue Update

August 9th, 2009 No comments

It has been a few days since I updated this. There has been a huge development since my last posting. I have had a haircut. No longer will I be forced to push it behind my ears, or make sure it is not sticking up at the back!

PC Helpdesk

August 6th, 2009 No comments

For a while Gina has been asking me to sort her PC out. She has had problems accessing PayPal and eBay from her PC. It is ok from Hugh’s laptop on the same network, but not from her PC.

Windows 7

July 24th, 2009 No comments

I got some memory for my laptop this week, and downloaded the Release Candidate for Windows 7. I installed the memory this afternoon, and it all works well. Except that 32 bit versions of OSes cannot address the full 4GB. It has to address memory for the graphics card out of 4GB, as that is the 32bit limit. The version of Windows 7 I have downloaded is the 64bit version. That can address 4GB with no problem.

The Apartment Revisited

July 18th, 2009 1 comment

I went to my apartment today. Dad dropped me off, and I climbed the 3 flights of stairs to the door. I know that my recovery is going well as I did not feel too bad when I reached the top. I think my sticking skills are much better now as well, as it has been 5 weeks since I last went there.

I planned to get up at 7:30am this morning. However, I got a phone call at 7:20am, and was on the phone for 20 minutes. That then put me back a bit. I checked my emails, so that put me back more, and then I missed my chance in the bathroom. I got downstairs for 9:00am.

Murray Monday

June 29th, 2009 No comments

I did not get up at the time I had set my alarm for. I am conditioning myself to get up earlier each day in preparation for going back to work. Today’s target was 8:30am to get up. I did not sleep well at all last night, and so I looked at the clock at 6:15am, and thought I had a good two hours sleep left. I then woke up, and thought it was only a few minutes after, but it turns out that it was 8:15am.

An adventurous day.

June 27th, 2009 No comments

Yesterday, I had decided that I would go to my apartment to make sure all was well. I could not connect to my VPN, so I knew something was up, it was just a case of finding out whether it was electrical or internetal. So, I was up earlyish, and had my normal breakfast, and then Dad took me to the apartment at around 10:45am.

Windows Reloaded

June 16th, 2009 1 comment

I was up and breakfasted by 9:45am this morning. I did the difficult Sudoku in the paper, and was ready to leave at 10:15am. Mum was ready as well (luckily, I was sat down at the time).

We set off for Rugby, and went down the Fosse Way. It was a sunny drive, and not too much traffic on the roads. I was interested to see what progress had been made on the Rugby Western Relief Road.

Manic Monday… well, maybe not.

June 15th, 2009 No comments

After the exercise I got yesterday at the field, today has been a relaxing day. Up and breakfasted by 10:10am.

I then updated my laptop to Vista SP2. This is hopefully a cure for my laptop occasionally saying that any memory stick that I put into it is “Unrecognized” (Curse those butchers of English). After a while, it sprang back to life again, and on entering Windows, nothing appeared different. I can only hope that a lot of things were done under the bonnet. However, I need to keep using my memory sticks to check that it has cured the problem. I gave it a try out by skyping Ma Yan, and nothing untoward happened, so fingers crossed.

Crawling towards the weekend

June 11th, 2009 No comments

A very un-productive day. I was up at 9:00am, and had breakfast. Mum was going out today, haircut first and then shopping with Yvonne in Banbury. Dad was going to the field to put the roof on the tractor garage with Terry. The tin man had dropped off the roofing materials on Tuesday, so everything is all ready to go.

All I have done is eat my lunch, which was in a cool bag on the table for me. I skyped Ma Yan, and as she was doing some exercises, I thought I would do some as well. Just moving my leg around and generally moving about. She then went for a run around the complex.
