An update

Hi all.
Well, another week, another blog post where I try to justify my continued existance.
So this week in order, not much, at least not much externally.
Internally family and friends with eye issues, under repair, not blogging that shit out here.
Same with bathrooms, troubleshooting right now same with other drama.
Computer wize, clearing space because someone decided to release 30 gb of chiptunes to my resilio share.
If it gets much bigger I may have to either stop chipsync or change my directory and drive over.
I have noticed the age of my cpu though.
Start more than 2-3 programs I need and run at the same time and it screws.
I rarely do it but even so.
More updates to aunt’s bios, more updates to java, more updates, paperwork to do today at aunt’s house.
Trying to get jono on the weekend.
Lunch at link yesterday and a coffee, still like the tempura bento japanese in link, it still costs 15 bucks, its fucking expensive but its pritty much the only place I can eat it here.
Lets face it, beans, onion rings, veges like cumera and pumpkin at times, the prorns scallops and muscles in batter, samon and squid sushi, the vegetaerian dumplings, the sushi and salad and its 15 bucks and I am full, its probably the only thing that would get me interested in that noisy dirty place, the food is just that good.
Not much else as usual, I just thought I better put in my 2 weeks posting while I had time to do it.

Sick week

Hi all.
Well not much has happened since the last blog posting, most of the family have got sick with colds and headakes.
The work on the bathrooms continues, its all I want to say about all this.
Computer wize, I updated aunt’s hp today, there will be an update this week being it is update week.
For the first time in ages I didn’t train today because I suddenly didn’t have the energy to do it, I have been trying to be active during the week because of well people being around the place making noise.
On friday I had a nice lunch, fish and chips, sallad and sliders, which are small bread roles, not sure about tomorrow, weather is supposed to be bad.
The good thing is that I am just about well enough to get out and do things.
The next things that will be happening.
Well the only thing on the cards is to get my hair cut because I need it but the local hairdresser is busy so I will have to go somewhere else and get it.
The next thing after it needs to be done within 2 months and I may even leave it till later, on, who knows.
I need to login and inform the government that I am leaving the country for my holidays well technically I don’t but if I don’t they will stop my bennifit and I can’t have that.
Then again, it probably doesn’t matter.
My plan is to wait till next month just in case something crashes out for some reason.
But who knows.
Maybe if I do it at the end of the month who knows.
I just hope the system doesn’t crash again.
Anyway, little else to say, short posting I know.
Tomorrow I will try to get out either walking or to lunch some how anyway.
Being sunday, and having only just sort of recovered who knows what will happen.
Laters just now.

And round and round she goes

Well managed to finnish the work yesterday on the instalation, but found out the asus got quite hot which my uncle never mentioned to me before, and since that tellys with everyone online I decided to not bother with it.
The netgear works, its setup, its got firmware updated and it works.
Before that I had pork belly for lunch at a pub called montros, expensive but usually good enough.
Going backwards, saturday I payed bills, updated hp devices, and got the jabra setup.
Friday, I went to rencon for lunch, japanese and that was good and shopped.
Thursday I went to coffee as usual.
Wednesday, I went to browns bay for lunch in the french cafe, on monday not much happened.
I managed to finnish another task pack for eurofly.
Dad is sick with a cold, and so is in bed, bathroom work will continue tomorrow maybe, architect will be round to look at some windows, and some trees need cutting.
One of dads friends who I also know came up on friday night, and chatted, he just happens to own a damler so I may go looky at said thing.
This week’s only other possible thing is the going out on friday with dad for birthday things, I have also got a shaver from dad for birthday.
Not much is planned for this week but I always say that, mum and I will be having harcuts, there is at least 1 walk, not much else.

happy birthday to me week

Well the multibirthday thing happened, the italian joint we went to was well it was fine not great but fine enough but costly.
Worked on an old asus wireless extender and will finnish that work setting up a netgear and testing the asus later for my uncle.
Yesterday I mucked with jono, had a roast, got a fair bit of food, and had some, and not much else.
This week for once I am empty of things, birthday things are going on, however with today being that friends I usually walk with are not here I am not certain what I will be doing.
If its not to wet I want to go to market and have lunch.
Because of alergies of friends I walk with, including some fruit and bread products market food is not much good for those people.
Not much else planned.
Aunt gave me some music, mum a pair of pants all of them early.
Not much else doing this week.
Dad may want to go out this friday who knows.
The bathroom has a leak somewhere which means the replacement of some tiles and we have a new touch pad dryer which just like the washing machine I am going to have trouble using.
Laters just now.

Another week

Hi all.
Its another week, I got aunt a jabra freeway and have been sorting it out.
Charging it, updating it, reading userguides.
It can charge on a standard charger for usb if it needs to and a car charger.
I talked to jabra about it and well just to say they are quite supportive, so thanks guys for that.
This week is the standard updating of windows and other things, flash has another update as does codecguide.
On saturday, is the multi birthday celebrations for myself, an aunt, uncle and cousin all in that order, I don’t have those in a single unit, hmmm wander if I had all those, pluss mum, dad, brothers, sisters and all family in a single unit if I could get cash from ginis or something.
Hmm but if I was in a single unit, hmmm a borg moment perhaps?
At any rate, a week after that will include on a saturday my birthday with jono, and shortly after that my birthday the monday of the next week, wednesday that week will be interesting, and the sunday of that week maybe to who knows.
After that in july th 19th being the aniversery of my grandpas passing we will be scattering the ashes and going out for dinner.
Then its father’s day, another cousin’s birthday, and well then its almost the end of the year.
Going walking soon, brilliant day to do that.
Ooh and we beat the french at rugby.

End of the line for skype

Hi all.
It is with heavy heart that I have no choice but to leave skype for ever.
I will still have skype for those that want to get in touch but as always you will need to email me first.
If you are in new zealand or australia I am going to start giving my home number out simply because skype is dead.
At least for now skype classic remains.
Luckily I don’t need skype for my business work I will need it for family things unless I move to whatsapp on a smartphone that is.
If you want to skype me, ask and you can, but the days of me logging on to it every day are numbered.
In fact I pulled out of nvda chat group, the only reason I logon to skype.
While I will keep skype around for personal reasons I am going to pull it out of my register.
Maybe I will try skype web through maranda, if I can use this to call then maybe its a solution but the skype client has gone nova and this time I think its for good.
Today, an update pushed me to a preview of 8x.
I know ms are moving away from classic but all I ask now is if they don’t want to update it that they leave it up for those that want it and in addition pull skype classic from the updateable skype clients.
For now I can still get it but The only reason I have an ms account now is for store apps on 10.
That and weather and news.
And I don’t need news and weather on there as such so store apps which I do have some I have brought.
I am not happy with this.
I am not certain why microsoft erodes its userbase like this.
Firstly it was its music to spotify, and now this.
There is barely a need for a home user that is not a business or on the go to even have an apps account unless he has and uses onedrive exclusively, and definately no need to login with a microsoft account.
For business users well.
To be honest, microsoft you can go to hell and take your fucking account with you which you wrecked for us home users that were actually doing ok before.
True there is tv and books and maps but to be honest thats that.

The week’s ramblings

Yeah I know its the start of another week and I am only just getting this one sorted.
Not much happened.
Firstly, I should have got my a10 at nole leaming when I had the chance or was it jb hifi.
Suddenly the a series seem to have mostly gone.
The rest are not much better.
Mostly a 4 6 and maybe 1 9
My plan next is to hit the rizen chips, they are new and seem to be ained for gamers and standard users.
They are fully multithreaded, and unlike the intel systems just don’t have issues or lets hope so.
It will mean I will not be getting a light system though.
3kg ultrabook is what I am aiming for.
Interestingly I looked and found an asus r7 system, it has the same specs my r5 I am looking from hp but costs 1-2000 bucks more.
The extra cost? a slightly better graphics card and 1 ghz of cpu power.
Thats really not enough for me to justify spending on it.
The good thing is that rizen seems to be the future for the amd chip.
For 800 bucks I can buy a rizen 3 or 1100 a rizen5 and for the extra 300 bucks its not a stretch.
Still this thing continues to be and while it does I will not be moving.
When it dies I will be going rizen and probably a laptop.
It will be an ultrabook right now basically an entertainment tablet.
1tb hdd, 256gb ssd, I think its got 8gb ram or is it 16?
I may try to get 16gb ram and a 500gb ssd but we will see.
I don’t need extra ssd size as such but still it would be nice.
In other news, among the usual things including helping aunt with all her computer things and bills, iphone updates etc I went to jono and such and and had a good day.
I have set my birthday friends party for 23rd june.
Things are coming so fast.
The next things on my mind this year will be a service and reformat of the systems uncle al has.
Well 1 of those.
I am unsure what is next on the electronics list.
I go to australia in october and will probably report my status in september though I do have enough time to report before I go.
Work wize, nothing as such, however I met one of my old instructers from swimming classes in my yunger days and she may have access to something maybe.
Still whatever.
Work right now doesn’t exist, It appears nothing from usual sources.
Later all
