trust the capital

Not to say that it wouldn't of happened the same way if it was down here, but it wouldn't of! :oP

Putting aside the fact Cork is the Real Capital why oh why did the people incharge allow a march like that to go ahead? As someone said today, its like the British allowing us Irish to march in London, and it's NOT Patrick's Day!

There is really no one to blame! Sure you can pass the buck from one group to the order like the council, the GardaĆ­­, the government, the media, the marchers or the ruffians but it all boils down to "Ha, the Country has a load of shits and its coz we have joke laws!"

On the lighter side, I do blame the Kaiser Chiefs. Bet you haven't heard that one before? Eh Eh Eh? ALRIGHT! You've heard it, now STOP saying it! OK! Grrr!...

if i may

Just a quick question! When was the last time you defragmented your Hard Drive?

I just ran a quick check to see how bad mine was and here is the report:

Volume (C:)
Volume size = 49.81 GB
Cluster size = 4 KB
Used space = 45.04 GB
Free space = 4.77 GB
Percent free space = 9 %

Volume fragmentation
Total fragmentation = 11 %
File fragmentation = 19 %
Free space fragmentation = 3 %

File fragmentation
Total files = 110,469
Average file size = 494 KB
Total fragmented files = 9,727
Total excess fragments = 55,345
Average fragments per file = 1.50

Pagefile fragmentation
Pagefile size = 768 MB
Total fragments = 1

Folder fragmentation
Total folders = 8,168
Fragmented folders = 562
Excess folder fragments = 2,170

Master File Table (MFT) fragmentation
Total MFT size = 125 MB
MFT record count = 118,934
Percent MFT in use = 93 %
Total MFT fragments = 7

When my 250Gig portable is finished being "checked" for errors I will transfer some files across to free up the 15% so I can defrag the drive!!

goodchild ~ google

I saw Aeon Flux last night. It had some interesting ideas in it, but I felt that it was just trying too hard. Its one of those films that you will look at in a few year and say "Oh! That is so dated!"
The basic outline:

Set 400 years in the future, when disease has wiped out the majority of the earth's population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by Goodchild and a congress of scientists.

At the start of the film you see the H.Q. of the city. For some reason I couldn't help thinking that this Goodchild city and world could be compared to the Google mindset.

Besides that, she Charlize Theron is very easy on the eyes, so I don't have any problems there!

happy tuesday

Yup! Its that time of the year again! Its the week after the last day of the first week in the second month of the year! This year: Happy Tuesday!!

Hope you all didn't fall into the trap again, the trap that only makes you buy really expensive gifts and cards for a single day of the year. Why not show affection more than once a year, and that way it wont break the bank when you decide to ignore this holiday! And when I say ignore... I mean forget :oP

Anyway, No more news here. Spending a night in on my own... *sniff* *sniff*

my star

I got an email from eBay today, telling me that I got my Yellow Star!

When you look at your User Name you will see that you now have a Yellow Star next to your name. This means that you have received 10 Positive Feedback comments. Users with Stars next to their names can be seen to be serious members of the Community. Your star shows others that you have successfully completed 10 transactions.

I also notice that I have saved over 6 hours surfing the internet using Google Web Accelerator! That's ¼ of a day!

worst blogger ever!

Yup... that's me! All the good intentions and everything just goes out the window! I tried... I really did, but I just couldn't get around to it!!

So what have I been up to? Not much... College is taking up a lot of time, and I'm guessing that its only going to get worse! I did however attack my Wikipedia Userpage, so you can have a look there for some info on me!

Speaking of Wikipedia... the isinglas article is up for deletion. Which is a shame. But you gotta go with the flow!

I got my iPod... 60GB Black 5G Video... in the post last week. Won on eBay the week before for a nice saving of about €€80. If I didn't tell ya already: You can't buy any iPods in Andorra, anywhere!! Not in Pas de la Casa, not in Soldeu, NOWHERE!!!

I also didn't win EuroMillions, so I won't be hiring someone to Blog for me and finish my Degree... who knows, over the next 10 weeks there might not be any winners and the Jackpot will get that high again!

NowI'mm not going to mention any promises about increasing the amount of entries, especially with LOST starting next week and 24 just around the corner! But who knows! My writers block may dissolve :)

*Update* The isinglas article has been deleted :*o(
