General Update

by on Nov.05, 2008, under Computing, General, Ice Skating

Well it has a long time since I have updated this with what I am actually doing, so here goes.

On Sunday I did the usual think of going ice skating and I most say that over the past couple of month I have been improve a lot, I still can’t ice hockey stop but that will come with time.

Over the Weekend I decided to upgrade my laptop to Ubuntu 8.10. I decide to do this at 22:00 on a Saturday night which is never the best idea I could have as I kept falling asleep and the whole process didn’t finish until 5:00 the following morning and then I had to go back through the ubuntu guide to make sure everything was working on my laptop correctly.

All of last week I was learning about Active Directory (AD) at the “Learning Tree” centre in London. I must admit that I did know some of the things that were being discussed the slightly more basic things such as adding machines to the domain, promoting a machine to be a domain controller and creating users, groups, Organisational Units (OUs), but I was unclear about how to actually plan an AD but this course I believe has helped put me in the mind set of what requirements to look at when planning.
Also on Sunday the 26th of October I was invited by Microsoft to watch an American Football game at Wembley Stadium in there corporate box. It was the San Diego Chargers Vs New Orleans Saints. The Saints went on to win the game but is was a close game which went down to the wire.

That is about all I have done over the past week and a bit and I shall update with a bit more technical information shortly.

Not much happening

by on Jun.12, 2008, under General, Ice Skating, Magic: The Gathering, Wii

Well over the pass couple of weeks I have bee doing very little it regards to playing the wii, engaging in some magic the gathering and anything else to be honest and with that in mind I am going to start doing more again. even though I am constantly feeling tired. As the weather is changing for the better (Yes I do have my fingers firmly crossed) I am going to start running around Kintbury as well as using the wii fit package. This in the short term will make me even more tired but in the long run I feel I should be able to increase the stamina which should allow me to cope better with the day. might even post my route and the times I manage to do the route in. I haven’t been ice skating as much as I usually do as I have managed to find excuses not to go which will change next weekend as this Sunday is fathers day and Clare, myself and Ryan are going out for a meal. I am planning on creating the list of the Magic: the gathering shadowmoor cards tonight as well as continue in writing a simple website which is a little CRM and a little equipment organiser.

Well that is for today I shall write some more on here either tomorrow or the beginning of next week.

The bank holiday weekend

by on May.06, 2008, under General, Wii

It was the first bank holiday weekend in May which is nice as it means it is getting closer to my Birthday, this year I will be turning to the not so grand old age of 26. Doesn’t really mean anything bar I am getting
older but definitely not wiser. I have been playing the Wii Fit game with the Wii balance board and as I thought I had natural balance. I was slightly wrong, I lean on my heals and slightly on my left foot. I am starting to fit this but it is a slow task as you have to be constantly aware of how you are standing, but I must say the whole idea of keeping fit on this board is great.

Also this bank holiday weekend myself and Clare decided to go into Newbury and watch the crafty craft event which is held by the Newbury Round Table. The ground was it usual muddy self but the sun was shining and the crowds were out so myself and Clare had a quick look round grabbed some lunch and headed to the pub 🙂 to meet up with Karen and Paul. At the end of yesterday we picked Ryan up from school having just spent 5 days in Germany.
