Its been hot but there is a small cold patch over us currently.
Should be gone by tomorrow.
Not much has happened as such.
Updates as usual, followed by dealing with phone spam, followed by looking at chrome and have it not work right and going to firefox57 which works to a point and can be used.
Playing a few games, applying for some more jobs and serveys, doing prep work for christmas.
And not much of that.
Watched us play scotland which were not pushovers by any standard of anything.
So today mum and that are away but should be back from friends today.
No updates for once and its my day off.
Nothing I need to action so sunday can actually for once be a day where I can just blob other than yesterday where I spent the morning behind a bike and on the ground and the afternoon sitting in front of a workstation.
Its becoming sunny and that means I can finally go out do things.
I had jono about the week before last, had a blast.
Had a good 60th party of a friend last week and that was good.
Lots of salad casarolle, cheese cake and 2 other cakes and fruit salad, of which wich I enjoyed vary much in particular since I have not eaten kiwifruit for ages I just don’t buy it as a standard fruit, its usually bananas, oranges, apples, grapes and manderins with a mango on the side.
Today for once I go to aunt, muck about with cousins and chat.
I had an issue with the phone which seems fixed.
Ms is supposed to call me on the office issue I have been having with dad but we will see.
Well not much today for which I am happy.
Firstly we take the week as it comes.
On tuesday we took the last trip with the cousins from germany to a bush ariea and then the pub where I had the biggest fish and chips lunch I ever ate.
A large sivfull of chunky fries, a load of salad and 2 large bits of fish in beer batter no less and a large glass of cyder.
After that not much happened but we went out to my uncle’s for coffee.
Little has happened for the rest of the week except the papers promising we have 2 weeks of possible cold hell then it will be hot, humid, with normal wetness, a lot of sucky winds, and other badness and it will be hot.
I was hoping there would be a lot of hot with sunny days and all summer but oh well.
I have applied for the audiogames.it testing team as they anounced that today, and I hope I get that.
Now the computers.
The printer refuses to print on google cloud, via wireless direct or anything randomly ish, it prints on the network and there is nothing wrong with either device.
Aunt’s system was tested but started fine.
Ofcause I test it and it didn’t exactly start nicely, I got a sightling to do it with me and the display had decided to not exist, I did a reload of that, then ran the support assistant in which I not only found that I had display drivers and the like but that I can’t trust it, on going to the web site for hp, I found a lot of stuff set in september that it just didn’t list and the same in october which were listed.
Importantly this included among other things, system startup utilities necessary for windows to interact with the system, interface drivers for the wmi controler, hard drives and ssds, touchpads, video and audio display ports, as well as the bios.
I will not trust hp support as I used to its still usefull for things like numbers but hmmph.
I spent time updating those and the rest, sadly after the shop had been at the system google was corrupted and I had to reinstall chrome as well as a few other things.
As far as the workstation goes, a call to ms revealed that it was a large bug and while they did a few fiddlings it just didn’t work and they said they were fixing it.
Its not exactly the answer I wanted but it does at least mean its some one elses issue and not mine.
Little else has happened, and bar meeting friends today and the usual shit that goes down nothing will happen.
I need to help aunt with her iphone tomorrow and also look at the printers again, recheck its all ok.
Its not going to help but may as well keep her happy.
I really want jono up, but to even have any attempt of doing that it needsto:
1. not be wet.
2. be sunny.
3. not be such that its blowing a fucking gale.
This last one I probably won’t get but a sunny day with a breeze is fine no wind even better.
Helloween went past with nothing happening, no news, nothing at all, guess the world has its own issues to bother celebrating for randomness but oh well.
guyfolks day is this sunday or should it be celebrate a terrorist day since thats what the origional guy would be classified as now days.
For once, bar an ear cleaning this wednesday I havn’t got anything of shattering import this close to years end I need to actually bother with.
That isn’t to say I won’t have things to bother with, christmas is coming and birthdays for parents.
Though even christmas is dumbed down.
In this family, we have drifted so far apart one is right into god, jesus and all the crazyness that goes on, one uncle is a business man and so are his children for the most part, we are fine and my dad’s lot are full of themselves and everything else.
In short no grandpa, no actual christmas, a few presents maybe and maybe we get a sort of christmas and muck about maybe, the day for me as it has been the last 2 years bar a dinner at night won’t be anything special as such.
The big day is my mum and dads birthdays later that month.
New years is usually a non event, no parties, I just go to bed at 9 pm as usual maybe who knows.
Lets hope nothing screws itself over like last year.
Looking forward there is a trip for all of us to pirth next year.
Ofcause there is the dentist and then me looking for test pilot jobs at auckland uni.
And if I get bored there is always the end of the world to look forward to which could happen any day judging with the us and corria situation of late and russia.
I predict the first bomb goes on christmas, or maybe next year, its pritty much a forgon conclusion, there will be a war this or early next year.
Then again there is so much shit on the local news I just don’t listen to half of it.
And with that out of the way I am off to breakfast.
Well I have had family over from germany the last few days.
I went to rotorua over the last 2 days and its been wet.
We had at least 2 3 hour + walks and another 1 hour walk looking at nature parks and getting a few recordings from some places.
Computer wise, not much has happened.
Due to issues with firefox I have reverted back to an old version.
It seems to be getting hotter, I am also dealing with issues with the workstation with outlook which I havn’t managed to fix just yet may have to use cloud service a lot.
aunt’s system has issues and needs servicing.
Over that I don’t have much to report except that audiogames.net is offline.
I have a few games to handle today but I think for the most part I will be doing not much as got up early intending to go through a lot of stuff only to find that I didn’t have as much stuff as I thought.
Well, just a few things.
Firstly bt sync and me are no longer friends after it tried to crash a lot with me and well I made it go away, I am using syncthing which is itself interesting as while everything is loaded in its not working
Well cousins came here on thursday and on friday I went out to devenport and town, drank and ate bits and bobs.
And both last night and thursday were big events for me.
Today I caught up on everything I needed to do, however I had to restore the system due to bt sync crashing and probably don’t need to at any rate things seem ok though things seem slower.
Little else has happened computers got updated this week with java, codecguide, the win10 big update and ofcause some other updates.
Things in the lists of tasks to do.
Well, tonight we have people about and rugby, tomorrow we walk.
Happily I am able to say I am done with everything, not much else to do now.
Going rotorua next friday and so who knows a lot of other stuff becides.
The only task to do this month is buy aunt’s present.
Next month I have 1 birthday party and I need to get my ears cleared as part of yearly checkups.
Over that I am just waiting for christmas and more work to start again.
Due to things being busy, there probably won’t be another posting of the blog till thursday week or there abouts.
Well lots this week.
If you havn’t heard along with ms music going there is aim.
One thing that will probably go once aim goes will be miranda ng, I use it for some irc but thats about gone.
Miranda was nice but that will go.
I am unsure what to do with my ms account, lets face it, the music was a good reason to bother having one.
I have 1 app that I got for the blind when it was cheap with it, and the calendars and a few things are nice, but as for using it with cortana, well maybe then again, I have almost no reason to log in with one anymore.
On a sad note crashy ie which I quit and others I know ages back is being used by companies, yesterday the local airport had about 2 hours of disruptions to security and other things after ie crashed.
You’d think you wouldn’t use it anymore.
In other news the updates came out this week and bar the usual not much changed though the updates were ie heavy of late.
I have walked some, and I will be going out to see a friend with mum today, on saturday after the normal, I will be going out at night to a play about old radio stations in the 30s and on sunday I will be having more people round.
On tuesday the new update for windows comes out and then at the end of that week cousins come from europe.
Then I have a break for a week in which more normal stuff happens, followed by a week about the city and a weekend in rotorua.
Once that is over, we have to get to the business of selling the extra house we don’t need with all the left overs in it.
People have asked me do I want grandpa’s big stereo, I really think others need to be asked before me, mine works fine but it is old and may eventually break.
My cd player is good but where would I put an extra I allready have a broken radio that all the family want me to have and I just am not sure.
Then again, it and just about everything in the house will be put on a trailer and dumped just before we sell, with the acception of the things people want or that can be given to the poor a lot of boxes have been slated for the tip and no one will want old outdated tvs and such so it will be loaded up to be thrown away sooner or later.
No one has said anything but we are allready throwing away a lot of things we don’t see any use for.
Anyway laters all.
Well did work, was good, got that out the way.
Went to jono and got some musly bars and chocolate mainly, had nice home made pizza dinner.
Had my bro’s birthday with family yesterday which was awesome.
Sadly I got rather sick in the head.
I am still dealing with being sick but its not as bad as it was yesterday couldn’t function right.
Even so, after I shut down, clear washing and do a little cycling, my plan is to sit in the lounge with glasses on and do not much.
For what its worth it seems to be summerish now with a forcast of 20 degrees dropping to 17-18 tonight so who knows.
I just wish it would totally get better with no rain though.
Wednesday will have the standard patch day, updates for windows on next week.
I really hope I am over this stupid cold head thing before the next trip comes, people are coming over and well.
A lot of stuff is going with the house my grandpa used to have.
He is dead so its just the extra house now.
We are clearing out his stuff from the extra house so we can get rid of it and it all seems like to be going next month.
We will be getting rid of all his stuff to pritty much and not everyone is happy about it.
What interests me that if you die and it has your name on it like your papers then its yours and well thats life.
But all the extra stuff including your house is just stuff to be chucked and a house to be binned to no one actually puts that way, but once you are dead and gone most people won’t want your left overs in fact its just left overs as you aren’t coming back for them any time soon.
No actual plans for this week, walk, get the computer from aunt to update for win10 latest, and thats about it.
Well the parents are back.
Got work today, walk tomorrow and thursday.
Need to get a haircut.
Windows 10 update later this month.
May do something with jono later.
