All change

This week has not been what I expected at all. First, I’m now going to Rock Choir this term. This is because ballet was cancelled for the term (long story), so I thought I’d replace it with Rock Choir. Whether I carry on after this term depends on what happens with choir, because I’d like… Continue reading

VR

I’ve heard loads about VR and seen it on BBC Click a lot, but given that I’ve also heard it gives you motion sickness, I thought I was doomed to never trying it out. Until Redemption… There was a VR panel, which was really interesting. They said that the more expensive VR headsets were better… Continue reading

iPod Touch case help

I have an iPod Touch. In terms of looks it’s very similar to an iPhone 5. When I got it, a year and a half ago, I asked my sister what to get. Knowing what I was like, she suggested the Griffin Survivor. Which is red (and black) and it’s been great. I drop my… Continue reading

New netbook

My netbook was, if not dead, then a bit ill on Friday morning. I bought a new one on Friday evening, failed to install Linux on Saturday morning (because it either didn’t like my DVD or DVD drive) and had it all set up and sorted by Saturday evening. Which must be some sort of… Continue reading

Life is never simple

It must be January – January seems to be the time when things break. Last week I opened my (plastic) sewing box and the lid came off as if the hinges had never existed. So when I bought some house stuff (and books) at the weekend I also got myself a tin to use as… Continue reading

Smartphones

It’s not quite a Smartphone, but I do now own an iPod Touch. It’s red. If it hadn’t come in red I would probably have thought longer about whether I wanted one. I have been holding out for an Ubuntu Phone but it always seems to be coming in a few months. There have been… Continue reading

Tablet computers

I remember when tablets first came out and I couldn’t see why anyone would want one (unless they had lots of money to spare). I’ve had my sister’s old iPad since Christmas and I’m still struggling to find a use for it, beyond playing games (and most of the games I play on there are… Continue reading

iPad apps

Since my sister gave me her old iPad, I’m now trying to work out what to do with it. I have put Words With Friends on it, so I am paranoidangel on that, if anyone else has it and wants to play. I will be slow since the app is slow and it depends on… Continue reading

Christmas and Yuletide

I have finally made a dent in my Yuletide reading. And when the Madness archive opened I got another ridiculous Ten Stupidest Things I’ve Heard Since Richard III’s Remains Were Identified fic: Tudor Spies and Perfidy. This has been a fandom I’ve enjoyed reading this Yuletide – it is different from everything else. We opened… Continue reading

Wind and work

Monday night’s wind didn’t do much for my back fence. Although I opened the curtains and watered the plants without noticing. It was only when I went to leave for work that I noticed the view out the back was a bit different to normal. Fortunately, it’s my neighbour’s fence, so I don’t have to… Continue reading
