    So..
    I am an idiot to start up with the blog yet again,
    dumb bum, see my plate is overflowing with lava,

    Anyways was my sisters birthday today, we celebrated at a pizza joint just a stone throw,
    over yonder through the waft of pepperoni and presutio...

    Love the Prodigy tune, love the fact that the tune was based on a kids show even more. Although Charlie talks sense, damn that cat was crazier than the Prodigy are :)

    The more I work on this laptop, the crazier it gets...

    I am dropping an SSD into it, and I was going to put a HDD for data storage in the optical slot, but the one I have been using is just crap-- it corrupted and I lost all the data I put onto it, and trying to move even medium-sized files took for-freaking-ever. Not sure if it's the (admittedly old) drive (SMART says it's good) or an issue with the SATA interface.

    Is the HDD 5400rpm? If so, then that could explain it being so slow. Luckily SSDs have gotten pretty affordable these days and you can probably have both your primary and secondary drives be SSDs for a reasonable price.

    The most affordable SSDs I can think of that are very reliable are the Crucial MX500.

    It was a 5400rpm drive. I'm thinking it's just the drive; I'm experimenting with another drive to see if the same kind of problem recurs.

    Updating firmware in headphones. Oh how I yearn for a simpler life. I'll probably be asked if I can help update firmware in a urinal next?

    The iPee 2000 has cameras in it that records and reports if you're not standing close enough and if you're missing. Next thing you know your insurance premiums go up, your loans are charged at higher interest rates, etc.

    Makes me chuckle when I see statements from project managers like this "Delivered industry leading project with over £800m of benefits".
    No my friend, you did not deliver that project. You cracked the whip and moaned about projected deadlines not being met, while a team of hard working software developers created and delivered that software.

    OMG ROTFLMAO! The first time I saw a smart urinal I thought it was broken.
