A Winters Tale, a computer, and tedium…

Posted in Benski, Family on 27/09/2011 by willsalt

Good Evening.

I went to Clarke Rubicon today, and spent 8 hours poking boxes. Got the traditional health and safety speech… Don’t set things on fire… if something catches fire, don’t stand on it… kind of boring… so that was fun.

Hehe, Phil will fly to the united states of Europe… and meet people in Hyde Park… I really don’t care if I spelt that correctly… it may just be a place dedicated to a crazy alter ego…

Hehe, Koreans ate Phil’s bunny rabbit.

Something similar to what Simi did, except I’ve actually had this one ordered… As I think I told you, I’m getting a new computer to replace this old piece off… err… charming hardware… last time I insulted it, it died… sure that’s a coincidence, but I’m not taking any chances.

So, it is:

Case: http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/images/#1446 The Coolmaster HAF 922

Processor (CPU). Intel® Core™ i5-2500 Quad Core (3.3GHz, 6MN Cacher) + HD Graphics. (By the way, this is what the website lists them as.)

Motherboard: ASUS® P8P67 LE: USB 3.0, SATA.0GB/s, CrossFireX™

Memory (RAM): 8GB SAMSUNG DDR3 13133MHx (2 X 4 GB)

Graphics Card: 1GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTS 450 – DVI,HDMI,VGA – 3D Vision Ready

Memory – 1st Hard Disk: 1TB WD CAVIAR BLACK WC21002FAEX, SATA 6 GB/s, 64MB CACHE (7200RPM)

DVD/BLURA Drive

24x DUAL LAYER DVD WRITER R/RW/RAM. (I’ll steal the blu-ray drive from this one… if I can…)

Memory card reader: INTERNAL 52 IN 1 CARD READER (XD, MS, CF, SD etc) + 1 x USB 2.0 PORT

Power supply: 450W Quiet 80 PLUS Dal Rail PSU + 120mmCase Fan

Some standard stuff  I’m too lazy to copy…

Genuine Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.

Some keyboard and mouse… and a surge protector…

So please don’t steal it…

in short:

Processor: Intel i5 3.3GHz Quad Core
RAM: 8GB
Hard Drive: 1TB
Graphics: 1GB NVidia GTS 450
Windows 7 Proffesional 64bit
Price: Too much

That was boring wasn’t it… and facebook’s annoying me. No, not facebook, the people on it.

Why is everyone, well… about 8 people at the moment, sending me requests in The Sims Social? Why even play The Sims Social? Personally I prefer The Sims 3, which isn’t exactly expensive, the graphics are better, and I think now it can even post stuff to facebook for you.

Aww, how cute. Father’s annoyed that I’ve wasted 59.25 pence of cookies.

Apparently we should follow and move like him…and take of our clothes… weird… still funny though…

I’ve had that on repeat for about an hour… is that weird? Probably…

Anyway, I’ve run out of stuff to do, and I think I’m tired, which is an odd feeling…

Thanks for reading, Tata.

(writing the ending to A Winter’s Tale, David Essex. Awesome song, and no, there’s nothing wrong with listening to Christmas music in September.)

Love Willski.

College, and expensive things…

Good evening.

I had my second day at college today, that was fun. Met Courtney Thompson and Kris… and there’s only one name there I know I spelt correctly.

And I got mother to buy me a computer. YAY! Expensive computer…

Molly bit  kitten! The Bitch! Well, she is a female dog. (It died 3-4 days later).

So, is paying £79 for a fancy case sensible? It’s certainly deceptive, but there’s nothing wrong with that. Hehe, I imagine it’s not my wisest decision. But I think it’ll be the most expensive thing I own, monitors £180… I think, Xbox was just over £200, Halo Reach just under £100… err, the safe was about £20… the bed’s not really mine, don’t know how much it cost though… current computer’s £450… Hi-Fi was expensive… but it’s nearly as old as my TV, which was I think around £100, now worth a lot less, it’s what, a 14” CRT that doesn’t even receive digital…

Err, the fish tank was quite pricey…

Anyway, not enough here. I shall continue this tomorrow, I don’t like posting 178 words.

Good evening, again…

I haven’t done any work on my bridging assessment since Tuesday, which is odd, because I’ve only got about two lines left, and I know what I’m supposed to say.

Interesting… It’s raining! In England!

So, I forgot my Game password. Then got my account locked trying to guess it, and now have to contact customer services. If they want me to phone them, I think I’ll just report the card lost, get a new one, and a new game account. It’s cheaper than phoning. Not sure it’s how you’re supposed to handle this sort of situation though…

Ahh, it’s nearly 8 hours later.

Sodahead is fun; you get to say things like this:

The death penalty is there for those who have supposedly lost the right to life, usually through some crime, such as murder.

Now, I’m not sure, but I think most foetuses aren’t mass murderers.

And:

I’d rather feed Rachael Ray to a starving Tiger. She’s got more meat on her, more nutritious. Not that I have any clue who she is…

Fun place.

Good evening. For the third time in one post, lucky you!

There’s a phone on my desk… well, there’s 3… but one of them isn’t mine. I keep getting told to phone people… Why is everyone so obsessed with Telephones? I prefer email. It’s much more polite, and usually doesn’t require actual speech, and you’re not trying to force them to correspond at a certain time. It’s just checking your emails whenever you like, and reply in your own time rather then “TALK TO ME NOWT TALK TO ME NOW! TALK TO ME NOW!” and yes, that’s quoting Stephen Fry with different formatting.

And I just chased a cat out of my room with a Katana… I also emailed the people I was supposed to phone.

And Emski’s supposed to be getting me a Morrison’s Application form… yay?

Now this is something I haven’t done for a while. Sitting in this chair, the sun coming through my window, roasting my left leg through a pair of jeans, and Jesus Christ Superstar playing on my computer.

I just toasted with a lamp and a glass of coke. I think the same glass I killed that keyboard with…

Hehe, so I’m working on the assumption I have a driving lesson this afternoon, I’ll find out when Simi returns. On foot, probably not, driving someone else’s car, either driving lesson, or he’s acquired a penchant for thievery.

A trick or two with lepers,

and the whole towns on it is feet

He is dangerous!

They say that second one a lot…

So, while awaiting Simis return, I’m eating Krackawheat, Crispy Wheat & Rye Crackers.

Ooh, that reminds me, I have to de-activate my blood bowl activation key… that’s weird… yeah, they’re one use, but you can un-use them… which I’ll need to do if I want to install it on my new computer; which should be dispatched in an average of 8.4 days! Well, 11.4 days from when it was ordered… and that was Friday I think…

Aww, they changed filter from the orange one to the blue one! And there are some very weird facial expressions…

Hehe, sorry, I’m commenting on Jesus Christ Superstar again.

Hehe, it’s Rick Mayal. One ‘l’ or two?

Okay, Emski, Simi, Mother and Father have gone on a little family outing. To Morrison’s. weird… then again, we have days out at Ikea, so I can’t say I’m surprised. It’s better than Alton Towers.

II feel like typing vast quantities of text, but I don’t have anything to say…Let’s look for inspiration. What can I see? Toby Turner on blog TV. The Powder Toy, Microsoft Word, with this in, and there’s an MSN chat window with Tom… err… yeah, only one of those is really interesting… But can’t really comment on that…

Anyway, I got a phone call today, that was surprising… doesn’t usually happen to me. It was an employee of somewhere asking me to work tomorrow… which means I have to be there at twenty to eight… hmm… working, good, something to do. And presumably money! YAY! But having to wake up probably before 07:00, which is less fun. I just heard a door closed and Emski running up the stairs… yay, free Ben & Jerries ice cream! Maths later…

Err… I’ve run out…  that was, what, 17g of protein, 127.5 g of carbohydrates and 63.75g of fat… this is a healthy day for me…

I’m glad I’m replacing this computer… it seems to be giving up at the moment…

And on that note, I think I’m going to post these three blogs…

Thanks for reading, ta-ta.

Love Willski.

Post-posting title of vague-ness.

Posted in Microsoft Office 2010, Other Software, PC, tedium, thoughts on 20/09/2011 by willsalt

Good Evening.

So this is my screen at the moment.

As you can see, there is my blog in the top left, in Microsoft word right now, my Bridging assessment for Stephenson’s college in the top right, research for the bridging project in the bottom right, and on the bottom left, Cyberlink Power DVD with Eddie Izzard.

Hmm, coughing giraffes… neither of which are logically spelt words…

And Microsoft word says that ‘are’ should be ‘is’.

Anyway, I shall return after parallel transmission… which I have to define?

Well, I’ve done some for parallel and Serial… currently doing Hexadecimal and am now watching Sweeney Todd.

So for the most part, not an interesting day… spend the morning & afternoon doing bridging project, driving lesson, and now back to trying to find evidence for stuff I know… so that’s no fun.

I just accidently spilt nearly half a pint of coke on my keyboard, so let’s see if that end of the keyboard still works.

Not anymore!

I’m using the one that was attached to my old computer… which is wireless, so that’s fun.

Really? It’s 00:28? Alright… I’m going to post this but I have no idea where the time went… or rather I have no idea what I’ve been doing. It’s weird, I’m sure I’ve been doing less stuff, no current full time education, even sleeping less now, but I still never have any free time…

Anyway, thanks for reading, ta-ta.

Love Willski.

I HATE ECHOES!!! and other things.

Posted in Benski, Family, Friendlings, Halo Wars, KEVII, Live, Matt, Microsoft Office 2010, Mother, Other Software, PC, Rants, reminiscing, tedium, thoughts, Tom, XBOX 360, YouTube on 17/09/2011 by willsalt

Good evening.

I’m sad now… and that doesn’t happen all too often.

I was playing Halo Wars with Gingee, Tom & Simi. As those of you who’ve read what I’ve said before may know, I generally play Xbox games multiplayers for social aspects, i.e. the conversations I have with people while playing them, only real reason I play Halo Wars most of the time, I have far better RTSs. Well, anyway, talking to people wasn’t working to well this time, because of bens Turtle Beach Headset. Marvellous headset, can’t really fault them, but the fact that everything I said I heard echoed back about a second later (coming from Simi judging from the little sound waves appearing next to his name) and that the same thing was happening for Gingee and Tom, (so I heard everything they said twice) kind of made conversation impossible. Couldn’t understand a thing anyone except ben was saying. (And his were usually negative things about me, which he’ll deny but let’s not get into that. It’s not important.)

So I’ve stopped playing Halo Wars, all I have to do now is type a blog post, and watch Sean Klitzners thanking 10,000 subscribers to find out when Emski appears in it. I’m 08:56:36 into it at the moment.

Bleh, need a drink…

So, how are you today?

Done anything interesting?

Hmm, Simi just can in and said ‘Gingee wants to chase Cole with a chainsaw’ then left again.

Isn’t it customary to have more of a conversation, or at least wait for a reply.

Just added ‘bleh’ to the dictionary, because I got bored of it being underlined.

Anyway, on a more entertaining and lavatory based side note, mother broke the handle for our toilet. The one in their en suite still works, and presumably the one downstairs. (downstairs being closest to her, and en suite being hers) but she still decided to break ours… that’s mean… so father fixed it. Instead of a handle, there’s n lid on the cistern, and a coat hanger attached to something inside.

Now to watch Fallout Nuka Break episode 2, because I forgot about it until now.

Still watching those extras.

Back to sean… 09:40:35.

So, doctor who. That seems worse than it used to be. Still good, but It’s not as good. Remember the good old episodes? Tooth and Claw, Dalek, The Empty Child & The Doctor Dances, Bad Wolf & The Parting of Ways, Impossible Planet & The Satan Pit, Army of Ghosts & Doomsday, New Earth, Sith and Jones, Gridlock, Utopia, The Sound of Drums & Last of the Time Lords, Midnight, Silence in the Library & Forest of the Dead. The Stolen Earth & Journey’s End, The Waters of Mars… yeah I think that’s most of my favourites.

Hehe, I had to get a list of episodes to get all their names, the majority of those were Russel T Davies episodes.

I suppose that happens with everything. Torchwoods’s getting worse… (Miracle Day’s better than Children of the Earth, but it certainly got worse with each series aside from that.)

Sames true of most of Buffy…(I’d put them best to worst, 3,2,1,4.5.6.7.)

Just passed 10 hours.

Aww, how sweet. Simi posted:

Will quits games of Halo Wars if you attack him.

So I’ve replied:

I didn’t quite when i was attacked; I left because I couldn’t stand the echo.

I had no objection to the game setup; if I had i wouldn’t have started it.

Although to be honest I expect him to delete that. And yes I corrected/modified the grammar for this version. Capitalized the ‘I’s, and allowed Microsoft word to switch the commas to Semi-colons.

And that’s annoying. YouTube’s stopped updating my subscription-ey-homepage-ey thing.

Hehe, Emski shares her birthday with 2 or 3 people currently attending KE VII, and some of Katers17s friends. (A long with a lot of other people…)

So most of today and yesterday I’ve had mother saying ‘don’t go on games, do your bridging assessment’. Which just makes me think about games… I lose interest about 5 words in and miss the rest… oddly though, the only gaming I’ve done is the halo wars today, and 3 games of space marine multiplayer before that.

Tom should buy Warhammer 40,000 space marine…

So it’s 22:24 and I have nothing to say.

Hehe, that ‘it’s’ has a green underline that turns it into ‘its’. Then it acquires a blue one that turns it back.

Only 27 minutes left.

I’ve found a religious nut on sodahead, so I’m convincing him there is no god. Is that mean?

Anyway, I was about to post this.

Thanks for reading, ta-ta.

Love Willski.

Pets, and others…

Posted in Archie, Cats, Hide, Lucky, Molly, Norbert, Pets, thoughts, Warmaster Horus, Wayne on 14/09/2011 by willsalt

Good Evening.

I planned to do a post that was pictures of my pets, so there’s an archie. looking weird…

And Archie again, this time on a sofa in the Summerhouse… with part of Wayne…

Here’s Hide sleeping on a chair.

Wayne, looking sad… although, he always does…

From left to right, that’s Wayne lurking in the door, then molly, and and Archie.

Wayne, sleeping on Emskis bed.

Molly sleeping on Ems Bed.

Rosie next to a fish tank.

Archies pretty little smile.

Kate, sitting on Hide, pre-Wayne-attack. (you can see waynes paws though…)

FATTY! Not so fat there…

i think she knows she shouldn’t be on there… probably thinking ‘if i can’t se them they can’t see me’.

Rosie, probably sleeping. perhaps dead. most likely the former as i took that about 3 months ago…

VAMPIRE CAT!

Cat on a laptop. she’s taken several keys of that keyboard…

Rosie again, same laptop, different place.

Molly, on a different sofa… being a pillock.

Rosie, in a window… looking sad…

Fatty in a tree!

Fatty, still in a tree.

Fatty still in the tree…

Zorro, not in a tree…

Horus! making my arm look rather pale…

Horus… still making me look pale… but less conscious…

Horus, err… does he know he’s lying down?

Rosie sitting on the router… that must do something to the Wi-Fi.

Rosie again, sitting on me this time.

She’s weird…

More Rosie, i think she’s trying to be evil…

getting better? or worse?

Fatty! in the dark!

Wayne! he was there motionless for about an hour…

unfortunately, his paw moved. 😦

Horus! with an odd eye…

A wayne, in my door. Can you see that blob of slobber?

Lickle Hide. i took a similar picture of Jekyl once… Do i have that here? Nope, but i do have:

The now deceased Dizzy. lovely cat she was.

Hide again, different angle… she seems distracted… I think being photographed isn’t important to her…

Rosie, also distracted…

There’s lickle Lucky. similar to her mother.

Rosie, again. probably the easiest one to photograph well. the rest keep moving…

Scarface! or alley… ally… ali… allie… err… don’t know how we spell that one…

Overlit Scarface.

Fatty!

Kate, by the fridge. looking weird…

Kate, still by the fridge… lokking all down, and blurry.

Kate again, looking a bit more normal… with odd lighting…

Lucky next to the oven…

Lucky on the prowl.

There’s a fatty cat on the floor.

lickle teeny tiny kittens. unamed, but all very Hide-ish. Want one? £10.

Kendra! very tricky to photograph. I was there for about 3 1/2 minutes to get that one, took forty something pictures, all the rest up to this point she wouldn’t stay still.

Three more pictures of rosie, by the kettle.

Horus, his eye’s getting better.

Fatty the out of focus kitten!

Fatty, and Kate. overlit.

Faty and kate. still overlity but also blurry and out of focus.

Kate! without a fatty this time…

Kndea! on my leg! also part of my face…

Kendras’ face! also a molly on the far left, and an archie in the middle.

Lickle Kendra, perched on my leg.

Left to right, Horus lying down, Kate sitting, Scarface sitting, and Kendra lying down.

And finally, lickle molly.

So, that’s all of them, well.. no not reall, but that’s all the pictures of them i’ve got on here at the moment.

So, now to see if the formatting worked.

Thanks for reading, ta-ta.

Love Willski.

hi. from emski 🙂

The dates are off, because I mised midnight by nearly 2 hours… 1 hr 57 minutes…

Posted in Friendlings, Games, Gary, PC, Rants, reminiscing, Supreme Commander 2, tedium, thoughts, Tobuscus/Toby Turner, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, XBOX 360, YouTube on 11/09/2011 by willsalt

Good Evening.

Is it wrong I end all my emails, including those to places like Stephenson’s college, with ‘Love Willski’?

As you may have noticed, I didn’t post anything on the 9th. I also didn’t post anything on a lot of other days, but I had a reason for this one. On the ninth, warhammer 40k Space Marine was released, so I completed the sorty mode/campaign, sorty? The closest word I can think of to that is sortie… well, I suppose the stiry, story mode is one of those… anyway, I’ve got to learn to type again… this is getting annoying. Only on normal, because I’m that lazy, and went in the multiplayer, which is actually fun! Didn’t expect that…

Hehe…

So, at present I think I’m level 20… hehe, I find it fun, doesn’t mean I’m good at it.

And I keep getting distracted because the word ‘sortie’ reminds me of Modern major General so that’s running through my head… repeatedly… and ii don’t know the words… most infuriating… well… not really, perhaps frustrating… annoying… I don’t know… some word.

Hmm, something just fell over by/against my door, I think it was an Archie going to sleep… Well, lying down… he does that there a lot… even when it’s open… strange dog… lots of ellipsis’s…

And now to look for jobs on the internet. Direct.gov me-thinks.

So, permanent semi-realistic ones…

Bar staff… I might meet someone I know… could apply I suppose.

Boots Customer assistant. I know someone who did work there, and went to university, I suppose that could be his job…

Casualty simulator. Do I get to bleed?

Cleaner, sounds fun!

Cook, well, I can’t…

These are fun. Jobs within 5 miles was one of my search parameters. A moderate portion of the results, Location: Europe. Well, I suppose that is within 5 miles… also within 100 miles, and I don’t think I could walk that.

Panel Wirer? What’s that? Meh, it’s in Leicester, I can’t move that far easily

Plant Welder? Oh, is that welding in a plant, not welding plants… that’d make more sense…

Costa Coffee store manager? Well I do like the smell of Coffee, but I can’t manage…

This one’s vague. Team member. Coalville, Leicestershire.

Wind Turbine Sales manager in, wait for it… not really waiting, it’s just the next line…

Glasgow!

Why does everyone think Glasgow is within 5 miles of here? ‘Cause I’m sure it’s more like two hundred and forty five, as the Nazgûl flies…

Not even the first to say that, Asda did the same thing.

Anyway, I just spent about 2-3 hours on Sup Com 2 with a panda… now it’s 01:51… so i’m going to bed… and i just hit my computer with a chair… that’s mean…

Hehe, sorry, watching “Movie Night” again…

Thanks for reading, ta-ta.

Love Willski.
