I just got a netbook from HP, it has Linux and Windows 7. Whats funny is it having more hard drive space than my regular PC... which also has only Windows XP.

What? HP is manufacturing that netbook rubish again? I thought the OEMs learn their lesson with those. But if it offers you more powerful hardware than what you had before, more power to you. :)

When buying a book I often look through the index first - if that looks well organised it gives me confidence in the author. ;)

Only 7 days to Windows 10 :D

 

And I got to do some cleaning by uninstalling VS2013 and anything related plus some stuff I don't need. And then once W10 has been installed, put VS2015 in. Don't want to have VS2015 before upgrading because the upgrade process reinstalls everything so I can save some time by not having VS in that process.

I've been using the Insider build for a couple weeks. After some initial driver problems got ironed out, I've found myself really liking it.

In case you hadn't noticed, ImageShack has been offline for 3 days (still partially down). Some how had they managed to accidentally purge the operating system on every single one of their 200 servers. LOL. More than three days to fix?! Tells you something about their infrastructure. As someone that has worked at webhosting company with a few thousand servers, I can say, "that's pathetic".

 

This company keeps shooting themselves in the foot. Sad, but amusing at the same time.

@Toe - never have used Image Shack ...... just didn't gel with them.  It's PB or Imgur for me ;) .

 

@Racerx - now why did I think you were already retired?  Perhaps because of all the fishing :D .  I wonder if there is a Mrs Racerx?  I am the wife of a retired person and all I can say is ...................... I preferred it when he was working :D .

Not retired yet. My wife doesn't want me to retire yet either. 35 years with the same company and it isn't much fun anymore, time will tell.....

Hey guys! Long time no visit. :) What's up?

Some updates: I'm studying travelling and event services now. I'm doing really well — I like my school, I've made tons of new friends, I'm going out with a guy next week (and I have the week off, autumn break). And I'm moving out with a friend who's also vegan and has 2 cats! We found a 2-room apartment in Helsinki with decent rent and it's very close to the city centre.

A rare incident of being happy about poor internet connectivity :P

 

My 4G connection went from nice full 5/5 strength to a poorly 1/5 and very slow connection....

 

It means they're upgrading my closest access point to glorious LTE-Advanced Cat 6 :D No more peasantly LTE Cat 4 :P

Tyson Fury! - who would of thought it - just listening on the radio. I hoped but thought he'd be down in round two.

(Mixed opinions on boxing - love the 'science' and courage, worried about the grey matter - good refereeing always essential).

Hope to see the fight online soon. But the pictures are better on the radio. :D

I was reviewing the 'Law of sines' this evening (for a new plugin). And they said I'd never use trigonometry in the real world...

Thanks David. I had noticed I was getting close.

 

I'm very humbled to have so many people value my work on the forum. Plugin Index is very close to 1.6 million page views. That too gives me a great sense of achievement.
