Spring is here [Apr. 5th, 2009|12:25 pm]
Don
[Current mood is  |contemplativecontemplative]

Ooo, the weather has been lovely all week, although I still have yet to go out in it ;) but its still nice to be free :)

I'm currently volunteering on a project for a good cause, working on a web startup for someone, and hoping to get some time for my own projects now. Hmm, I think I'm going to need to start getting organised for this to all work!

What else? Ah yes, I have been spring cleaning away ready these past couple of days as I have a few pieces of furniture arriving Tuesday afternoon, so I'll finally have furniture again! :D Rebuilding a life takes a looong time ay ;)

Just a couple of weeks left now, and then we can hope I won't become a hermit ;)

Moving on again [Mar. 6th, 2009|10:43 pm]

Well time has past and its now 2009 and I handed in my one month's notice last week.

Despite work pretty much 24/7 continually, I have been managing to put time into a side project that I am fully backing, and should keep me occupied whilst I finally have free time ;)

April will be the time to really focus!

Decent Seven Inch Laptop? [Jun. 17th, 2007|09:24 pm]
Don
[Current mood is  |contemplativecontemplative]

I've been looking at the smaller 7-10" display laptops again today to see if there might be a light, portable model for work.

Ideally I'm hoping to find a model with a decent processor that can be upgraded to 1-2Gb RAM, with a good sized starting hard drive (60Gb min) and a solid battery life (over 6 hours or so), and which would support running a flatscreen monitor in 1024x768 (17") and 1280x1024 (19") in 32bit colour. It has to be able to run as a LAMP testing machine, with a VPN client and handle whatever I'm working on all at the same time, so its got to be fairly good.

There are a few smaller Fujitsus, Sony Vaios and of course the Flybook to consider; I am currently looking at the Fujitsu Siemens P1610 and the Flybook V5 and V33i atm, and possibly the Panasonic R6.

Are there any other good pocket sized laptops or tablets I may have missed?

New job means spending money, right? [May. 26th, 2007|04:56 pm]
Don
[Current mood is  |contemplativecontemplative]

My new employers don't seem to be very ergo-friendly so I've been purchasing a few bits ready for next week to duplicate my home setup.

So far I have ordered a Logitech Cordless Desktop Comfort Laser keyboard, a Kensington Black Foam Wrist Rest and a USB2.0 Hi-Speed 4 Port Hub (as I believe we use laptops as standard and am not yet sure how many USB ports it will have). Instead of the expected £35 it only cost £25 with the Google Checkout discount. Then, at some point this weekend, I want to nip into town and grab a Fellowes Gel Mousepad.

I will leave ordering a Wacom Graphire4 Classic A6 Tablet until next weekend, when I'm certain everything is going well, and I might need to add a laptop riser/stand and lock then also. Now you may know why I seem to come out of jobs with less money than I started ;)

New Job as a PHP Developer [May. 25th, 2007|06:32 pm]

I have a new job!

My job interview for the second position went well today and I have been offered jobs at both companies. I opted for today's company, as it seemed a more sociable environment and it was located slightly closer & in the middle of a town center; So I will be starting there next Thursday!

With this new job I should be learning a lot more about ecommerce systems, and server redundancy setups, that should prove very useful for the future, and did I mention they were also a games publisher? ;)

I was offered a job as a PHP web developer/C++ programmer this morning (located 45 mins away), for which I need to let them know my decision by Friday afternoon, and I have another interview for a PHP position on Friday morning (25 mins away).

Can't someone just fund me for my own project? Hmm :(

UK Smoking Ban - July 2007 [May. 12th, 2007|09:34 pm]
Don
[Current mood is  |blankblank]

Smoking in enclosed public places will be banned in England from 1 July 2007.

The ban covers virtually all enclosed public places including offices, factories, pubs and bars, but not outdoors or in private homes.


So there is only a couple of months to go. As a non-smoker it will be nice to be able to go out for the evening and not come home smelling of smoke, but I can imagine it will be difficult for smokers. I wonder what kind of a difference this will make.
