Sun Lollys

image

the sunny times are approaching so I have told my mum to buy me some sun Lollys and some mini milks (thank you peter for getting me back onto mini milks). but I was in tesco today and instead of seeing sun Lollys, I see nothing but Jubbly. Have Sun Lollys been re branded, or do they have a new rival. either way, I want some original sun Lollys and I also need to get some original Tizer!

The new tizer is revolting, tizer was up there with iron-bru and coke, it tasted of itself, but now its fruity. Why do products do this to themselves?

JBL ON Stage Micro

DSC02238

As you may know I have given my iPod Mini and my iPod dock to my grandma. she wanted a PMP  and my mum bought her the worst I have ever seen, so I gave my grandma my Mini and my dock, half to be nice and half for personal gain. I didn’t want her to put up with the rubbish my Mum bought her, but also I would get a new dock out of it.

so I set myself the £30 limit I put on most general purchases. so I went onto the apple site and picked this out, great reviews all round, one of the few 5 Star products out there. so I went on eBay and picked one up for £35 +p&p, and it truly is 5 Stars.

Comes with remote controlling everything a regular iPod can do, it has flawless, huge sound. Powered by a.ac or batteries, audio in and out, a USB connection will let you sync your iPod while it is docked and it even comes with a handy travel pouch. Really I cannot flaw it for use with an iPod.

but sadly, I have an iPod Touch, and iPod Touch has docking issues. While my iPod is docked the speakers emit a quiet but annoying sound, I tired it with my brother’s Nano (my old Nano) and there were no problems at If that is not strange enough, the strange sounds are only heard when the dock is plugged in, when it is running from batteries there are no issues. And the final problem is that I cannot sync with the dock with my touch, but my brother’s Nano will sync through it. this is not a problem with the dock, but a problem that comes with the iPod Touch.

but I cannot be too bothered about it, it is actually a beast of a dock which has no problems at all, I only hope the iPod touch docking issue will be resolved in a future firmware update.DSC02244DSC02240DSC02252 DSC02249DSC02233

Hardy Heron Disc Arrived

DSC02184

You can buy the disc from the site, but you can also apply for a free disc that will take a few weeks to be delivered, I pre ordered it so I cannot say how long it took to arrive because I do not know when they were available, and also I cannot remember when I applied. but what I can say is that I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived.

another pleasant surprise was that it came with stickers! I really like it when things come with stickers and I wish more things did, and companies should start giving out badges with their things, I want badges themed along what I purchase. (does anybody want to give me a sticker?)DSC02185 DSC02186

Clean Laptop

DSC02253

How hard did this have to be? My laptop was running slow so I wanted to clean it to get it running back at how it should. for reasons unknown my laptop did not want to burn backup discs, so thankfully Gary lent me his iPod for my to backup. but once I had things backed up I thought I could just find something in vista like “Restore to Factory Settings”, but no luck.

So I dug out the vista disc that came with my laptop and re-installed vista, which meant that I lost all the Acer software that came with my laptop, but I am not TOO bothered about it.

but yes, now it is clean of malware and running like a black, but it was way harder than it should have been, I need an external hard drive for backing up. but I am a bit low on cash at the moment, ho well.

My New Setup

Well, my Grandma and Grandad are over from Cyprus to celebrate their 50th anniversary. They normally come over at Christmas and I give them my room because it has a better bed and storage. Christmas last year the ariel in here was a bit wrong so I didn’t bother bringing my TV in, but now it is ok so I did some experimenting.

So I have a bit of a dual monitor thing going here which I really love, it is more desctopy than in my other room which is good and bad. It is good because it is more like hands on, but it is too far from my bed to be used in bed. I am contemplating keeping this setup, obviously cleaning it up a bit because it is a mess of wires at the moment. There would be no question whether or not I should keep it if I could use it in bed, but I can’t, so it is a hard decision to make.

Its good because it is more or less like two computers, I can have media centre filling the whole 19″ and have Firefox open on the laptop, it is actually really great. It has urged me even further to want a desktop with 3 monitors, it will be a great.

But yes, if anybody has any ideas how I can have this setup but nearer my bed please tell me, it is a hard decision for me to make.
