Post Reloaded

FFS I hate when that happens I really do. It has happened twice I am about to post my Blog and the computer I am on crashes in some way In this instance I was just about to hit post and publish on my Blog when my browser Firebird crashes (Downloading Firefox at the moment). So don't blame me if this post is crappy cause I just can't remember everything I said in the last post, this post would've probably been crappy anyway.
On a side note out of sympathy for me, Fiona deleted one of her posts that made me rather sad as I know it is just a Blog, but really we are the only ones who read each others Blogs so that sort of makes them like our love letters, they should not be deleted or tampered with ever... she is reposting as I type. Now onto the post I tried to do earlier.

Long couple o days

Yesterday we signed the lease for our new place and as with us, it was not without incident. We signed for this Beautiful new place with wood floors... YAY.
Then after we signed we proceeded to set up the fish tank. But before we could get the fish tank in the house we couldn't open the door. The real estate agent had earlier had problems opening our lock, but not like this, I went and got some WD40 from the car and bobs your uncle (and marries your aunt, suppose it does depend on who you are though) the door opened in we went and setup and filled the fish tank, but the perfect place for it was not near a power point, besides we needed 3 in reality, so we went out to get a power board and long extension cord so that it wouldn't be in the way. On the way we picked up Marion to show her the place.
We drove there parked and went to open the door and YAY it wasn't opening again, only this time in my infinite wisdom I left the WD40 inside the house.
Great, so we stuffed around with the lock for 20minutes then called a locksmith, and over he came, checked the place said there was no way in but the front door, which is reassuring.
So he gets out his drill and drills away. During which Fiona said "so much to blog" she such a cute little geek-grl isn't she (check her blog out she has already posted). Then bam he has it open.
In we went and showed Marion around and set the tank up it is damn nice with its new filter. Needless to say we now have a new front door lock.
Then today I went back for my first day of TAFE this year. Interesting group of people in the class, but it happened again, someone leaned over during class after I made a smart arse correction of the teacher and said to me, why don't you get up and teach the class. HEHEH. I replied with well your being a smart arse too and I said damn three smart arses in one class (looking over at the other one behind him) I pity our teacher.
The MBR on the Hard drive I was given for my practical work was stuffed, which got my first day of class off to a nice start, I suggested to my teacher that if I could borrow a floppy disk I would be able to quickly fdisk it's mbr etc no probs, she just grabbed it off me 20minutes later I get it back to find it has been wow fdisk' Oh on floppy disks, the teacher made a classic statement, "Being all IT professionals you should have a floppy disk on you" I felt like standing up and holding my thumbdrive high in the air while singing the death knell of the floppy... but I didn't.
But she was trying, she first taught us network topologies like LAN, MAN and WAN, but where, oh where was PAN... I mean seriously it is still a network, however small.
And well some of the concepts where, well a little bit badly explained, like peer to peer networks which she explained as a network without any servers on it...hang on I thought and voiced to my classmates afterwards (even though I had the gist of what she meant) "Doesn't that mean any computer that is on a network sharing files instantly becomes a file server and hence in is no longer a peer to peer, meaning the only thing you could do on a peer to peer network of this definition is ping the shite out of another computer on the network" but I realised then as I do now that she means it doesn't have an authentication server. She also tried to teach us something she called server based networks which I know as client/server networks, but yeah same gist. All in all an interesting day, well see if it ends up being fun as I hope it will be.
A little more competition on the home front, competition has somewhat died down about folding@home, but I am sure blogshares a fictional game that makes Blogs worldwide shares, with fictional values, my old Blog page is worth over my current page is only worth 1000 ah well. Fiona's page is also only worth a 1000 so this could be This is why you should see over on the left the blogshares link, for a little while till I get bored of the clutter.
Adding a new section to my Blog that I will always sign out with my Bluejacked section, read my archives for more info. Hope I get some nasty emails via the address I sent via the Bluejack.
Bluejacked: Nokia 6310i, Sony-Ericsson T610, Nokia 6310i, Nokia 6310i, Nokia 6310i.
Peace out all.
