Feckin heat, I hate being overly warm. Unlike most the Irish population I do not look forward to the summer in the hope of a scorcher, I do not look forward to the swelthering heat that leaves everybody gasping for air, like a fish out of water. No, I like the cold, I work better, I feel happier, I don’t get headaches, I get to look forward to being out of the cold or the pissing rain, it’s like a mini reward every time. I am the Irish weather anti-persona, I am the crusader of cold, I am Jacks inflamed sense of rejection… ehh, ok I won’t go down that path
Anyways on a stupid note, why are people still using the bastard child of win 98 and 2000? That’s windows ME for those of you that don’t know it. I’ve a machine sitting behind me that’s buggered, Internet explorer is buggered, so the only option with it is a reinstall (system restore buggered to) it’s all buggered! I seem to get quite a few people in with their windows 98, ME and sometimes 95 systems, get a new computer ffs! blurrrr
Thank feck the painkillers have kicked in

My head is feckin fried. I’m trying to tweak wordpress and there’s so much to do. I’m not complaing about wordpress, I’m just suprised how out of the loop I am. Css, php, widgets, categories, tagging, openid, technorati, wordpress.com (for the antispam), feeds, gravatar, ping backs etc… I need to get my head around it all, and I’m sure I’ll enjoy it, it’s just so overwhelming at the moment, time to make a to-do list, oooo a to-do plugin vicious circle.
Although I’m building something with this, I know there are plenty of guides on how to setup wordpress and various sites, but at the very least I’ll have something to remind myself how to do it. That reminds me, gotta tweak the perma-links. unFixed (thanks for the info Ben)

Wh00t, a new version of Spybot was released, I highly recommend it to anyone. Scan speed has greatly increased as they’re now using a new techinque (not new in concept) using Spybot users scans via the Spybot-S&D Distributed Testing Client. I’m a big fan of of spybot myself, while I’d never really consider it a novices program, it’s easy to use and if you’re willing to read a little can be informative as to what happens to your computer. It’d be nice to see them release a version that takes some of the options (the teatimer) away from the user and uses pre set rules to stop the user from allowing dangerous changes.
A little training and common sense can prevent a lot of computer infections and the spread of malware, spyware and grayware. At the same time, it keeps me busy with repairs
Just noticed today, they seem to be based in Dublin, Awesome.
