Bad Friday!

Wow, Last Friday 31st August, I had a bad day (well in the evening at least).

I have written a blog post but can’t post it yet as is on my PDA. Check back shortly.

To keep up to date, I will post some stuff to my Twitter page via Text Message. You can view this at Twitter.com/Gadget17

I will not have major internet access until at least Friday 7th September, please avoid sending any messages or emails until this time. Thanks! Paul.

What's been Happening?

Well it seems like as every week goes by, I post less and less to my Blog. But I will try to post more often if I can.

I have started on my next batch of Home Made Wine and tomorrow will be adding the finings and by Sunday should be ready to start bottling.

What else has been happening. Oh, I have rearranged my Computer desk as I now have a monitor stand with a pull out keyboard tray.

I am still watching Big Brother and what a twist this week having a Big Brother Africa contestant enter the house. Although I think that Gaetano’s first night was not the best it could have been calling Tania a Pig. But hopefully the housemates spirits should lift when Cameron returns later today.

I now have GPRS on my 7650 switched on. I am on Vodafone Pay as you Go tariff and found out I could get this. When they switched on I could get to work all through yesterday. So when I got home I checked out their web site and they could send me the GPRS settings which finally worked. Only thing (which I noticed fairly quickly so didn’t lose loads of credit) is you are charged more for viewing Non-Vodafone Live sites (0.73p per Kb) than Vodafone Lives sites (0.1p per Kb).

So if I am surfing the Net and may be a while will be cheaper (a lot cheaper) to use Dial-up than GPRS although a lot slower. Maybe one day the price will come down again. I can always live in hope.

Spell Chequer

I have just run all my blog posts through a Spell Checker and boy did I make some obvious spelling errors! I have of course now corrected the ones I found.

In honour of this, I have a Poem!

Spell Chequer
Eye halve a spelling chequer, It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue, Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word, And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write, It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid, It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite, Its rarely ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it, I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect in it’s weigh, My chequer tolled me sew.

Oh What a Night!

When I got in from work at about 5pm, I went straight to bed as I was too tired. I slept till nearly midnight and then came online to try to work out how to get Moblogger to work. It is almost there, but does not seem to want to upload the images to any directory on my FTP site, although it does connect!

I will e-mail the guy who created it to see if has any ideas!

* * PhotoBlog * * If I get the program to work, I will hopefully on a regular basis post images direct from my phone. In the meantime, when you view this Blog there may be posts which I have posted to test and will most likely say “Test Post” but I delete them after a short period!
