Teaspoon of pus, anyone?

That's how much I've managed to get out of the thumb so far! Huzzah and yum!

Work's stupidly busy tonight, and I've got a lot to do. I'm taking a little rest here and there to get something written up on here, because today has been manic and this is one of the few places I can get a little rest and get what's on my mind written up.

Over the weekend I've not done much, just been slowly getting into that plan I wrote up a few days ago. As things stand, I decided for this month I will not go onto AIM with my usual username. I might pop on with the work name if work is completely dead and I've nothing better to do, and I'll pop on with an alternate name if I need to pass files on, but generally the whole online-conversing thing isn't fun or productive for me at the moment. I feel I could be doing more interesting things, and that's what I aim to do. After the month, I'll see how I feel.

The only problems with my plan so far are fixing the sleep pattern (I haven't a hope of fixing that for a few days. The books I ordered arrive tomorrow; then I'll be happy to lie in bed and read (instead of sitting on the computer with the TV on as background noise until I feel tired, the norm right now)) and exercising properly (because I'm useless at finding time for little things).

Over the weekend, I played an online game of Sonic 2 with Jess. We were awfully mediocre, but got through most of the game, at least. I also began work on creating some sides in Sensible Soccer and tracks on Micro Machines 96 for the online-playing in the future - if any of you guys aim to join in on the online-playing, I can pass on roms and saves so you can add your sides into Sensible Soccer, and practice the custom tracks on Micro Machines 96.

aside - Jess, can you check that copy of Micro Machines I gave you, see if the created tracks are still there? It'd mean a lot if I could get the info of those levels so I can recreate them...

Last night, I finally converted to Mozilla Firebird. Despite Microsoft fixing these flaws today, any program with major security flaws in the first place, is a program I don't want Cliff using. Except: he loves his browsing. He's managed to break games of mine before now, I don't trust him with browsing unless I can set things up to protect my poor computer from his net usage1. Mozilla Firebird does that. And to think I was praising Slim Browser to some of you a few weeks back: with the Preferences you can download from Mozilla's website, you can do everything Slim Browser can and more.

This could be an interesting month, I don't think I'll be able to adhere to my plan without a lot of hard work. Though I do know I'll be scared of Coca-Cola. It tastes horribly saccharine already after drinking lots of milk and orange juice for a weekend.

1He never did explain how that picture of a naked lady's arse managed to get into my recycle bin and cache: but it wasn't his fault! I must blame the Dutch rock and roll sites!

  • Ooh, hello.

    I remembered how to log in on here. Gosh, dredging up the past is like using one of those snakes to get the gunk out of the bathtub. Apparently I…

  • FIFA Test

    This came up while playing FIFA 12. A bit of NBA Elite-style Jesus-posin'! This is also me posting it into LJ to see if I can find a workaround to…

  • Wow

    You know what? I used to write a load of stuff in here. It was only when a family member from back in England asked how long it's been since I got…
