The not so daily update

I started this with the intention I'd write something every day. That's already gone out the wazoo.

Still here is todays news...

A trip to the doctor today to get the prozac prescription topped up resulted in me being diagnosed with a mild case of glue ear. Mild but daggummed long winded, the symptoms have been there on and off since before I visited the States in April. No action is as yet to be taken...

In other news, if anyone can explain how a computer that is connected wirelessly to the router, but reports no connectivity from router to internet is capable of downloading AVG, SpyBot and CCleaner? This is of course a windows machine, establishing a connection at a distance greater than 2 3/4 inches from the router took nearly two hours, uninstalling Norton took another hour (god I hate that software) and every procedure seemed to make itself as complicated as digitally possible, a distinct contrast to the 2 macs I've done similar work with recently (genuinely Plug and Play). I think I'm rapidly becoming a convert to the cult of Jobs, tough currently my windows box is impressing me as a media device over HDMI, or more accurately Nero's media centre and Nvidia's graphics card in combination with a philips TV are doing their best to prove that windows still has a place in my home.

I also have to provide another negative endorsement... Halls sugar free menthol cough sweets will really screw up your day if consumed in a too large a quantity. Can you say laxative? I can't, I'm in a rush............
