Now, no one take this seriously.  Just slightly angry.  But I've been saving all of my PDN files in my downloads folder.  Which has been working fine, up until recently - I am running out of space on my laptop's hard drive.  So, now, I have to weave through and pick out all of my PDN stuff, put it somewhere else, and THEN I can clear my downloads folder.  

The hardest part of ending is starting again.

Sorry, nil sympathy.

 

Bizarre place to store your stuff.  Don't you have a My Pictures folder??

 

You need to get organized!  Proper folders and sub folders with descriptive names is the way to do it.  Something like this:

You have no idea how happy that folder organisation makes me. I currently only have about two months' worth of files on my computer, so there's no need for a great organisational structure, but I used to have everything categorised by year, then month, with a special folder for things transcending dates.

How I organize my desktop:

1. dump all the pictures into a folder called "pics".

2. dump everything else into a folder called "misc".

3. put both folders into a folder called "stuff".

4. move the folders on my desktop around to make a smiley face.

well, good news: my laptop's working again. My hard drive had some issues but all the files were still there, so my friend salvaged what was worth salvaging; I got all my photos back. Bad news: I have no enter key.

 

would connecting a keyboard using an usb port work ?

I'm using ubuntu now :D Has its upsides, like 4 workspaces and a nice interface, but no PDN is a major minus. :( No netflix either.

 

Welsh: yeah it would, but we don't have any. I looked up a couple tutorials though and remapped it to a useless media key.

After weeks of planning a night out ... floods have closed the roads  :unimpressed:

 

I must be getting old.  No way was I going the long way round.  50 miles instead of 18 to get there.  Then an extortionate taxi fare home.  Sod that and I don't care who thinks I'm boring

Not me for sure. I / We refuse to pay the price hike to taxi drivers, fair enough they do give up a night that they may like to go out on, but they are not alone. Last NYE I worked all night. many of my co workers are there all night this year. My plan is to watch the annual Jools Holland knees up and then toast in the new year with a glass (or 5) of some white wine. 

Enjoy your night Welshblue what ever you plan to do. And an advanced Happy New Year to you and yours. I hope the floods subside soon.

Sounds good.  Apart from the wine.  Stella will keep me company instead.  Not a bad line up on Jools ... and the truly fantastic Ruby Turner is on with him again.  :)

Listening to the rain I'm glad I'm sat here and not traipsing from pub to pub to club ... the club prices are ridiculous tonight as well as the taxi fares.

 

The forecast is for some dry weather over the next few days and no reports of homes flooded yet, so hopefully it's just inconvenience not heartbreak for some.

Happy New Year to you and yours too NN.  Your colleagues and yourself are a credit to the NHS - not the managers who are overpaid and making all the cuts.

 

Happy New Year to everyone who posts here ... may 2013 be so good for us all that this thread sinks ...

Welshy, I wouldn't do it either. We walked to the Thai restaurant instead of taking a cab or me driving. I don't drink but find it hard to see in the dark...old :D

 

Raining here too thank goodness. It's soft rain that is fab for the gardens & lawns.

 

Happy 2013 everyone!

I finished it.  It only recently occurred to me that I should empty it out. 

My fraps folder was more beneficial to empty, as it had about 20 2+ gigabyte files.  I've got about 50 GB left, as opposed to 20 when I started.  I'm all good now.

 

Rant:

I've been having trouble making new images with paint.net.  Sometimes it will crash on start up (I think I may have screwed up my computer - everything seems to be going slower), and sometimes I'll spend 30 minutes or more on some random image, then I'll decide I don't like it and close it.  Looks like I'll have to go back to the tutorials for a little bit, I'll get to that the next time.

The hardest part of ending is starting again.

I tried Ubuntu once.  

A major minus was the fact that it wouldn't connect to the internet.  Worked fine on Vista, but not on Ubuntu.  And I don't ever feel like learning a new OS without the need to.
