Right, first REAL post of the year…

It was FA Cup weekend, and that means every bloke is glued to the TV – the FA Cup never fails to bring some ‘giant killers’ (lower leagues beating the higher leagues etc.). This weekend was no exception…

Arsenal lucky to win a draw against Leeds (rematch at Elland Road will bring some money to Leeds, and I wouldn’t like to play up there against 38,000 braying Yorskshire men – c’mon Leeds! πŸ™‚ )

Spurs took out Charlton 3-0 to earn a 4th round place away to Fulham – I’m not worried about that though ;), Chelski won 7-0 against Ipswich (my lodger Bri was a bit worried going into the game with Chelski on a bit of a downer…), Man Yoo beat Liverpool 1-0 (dodgy penalty for the home team then Liverpool getting ‘The General’ – Gerrard – sent off really didn’t help Dalgish’s first game back in charge…).

So, the football went well (apart from Leeds not going 2-0 up which would have knocked the wind out of the gooners sails), had a lovely dinner at Von’s (Bri’s missus), with a few others – lovely meal (as ever), some nice wine, and good conversation (we were watching the Man Yoo v Liverpool game with me updating via my phone on the important games πŸ˜‰ ).

So, almost 7pm, I’m home, just cracked open a lovely bottle of Chiraz, and I’m sorted πŸ™‚

Bring on the week I say πŸ™‚

So, the only thing missing from my life right now is a woman…and to be honest – I’ll settle for my left hand right now, can’t say I enjoy being single ALL the time, but I don’t miss the drama.

On a side note, since I bought my new phone (Nokia N900), I’ve been plagued by people who have this masterpiece of computing, but don’t understand the underlying OS (Linux), so can’t ‘fix’ minor niggles they get (makes me look like a Linux god – I’m NOT! – when I can type a few commands and fix their corrupted SMS database etc.)

Oh yeah, I never mentioned I bought a new phone πŸ™‚ this is my baby:

Yes, it’s quite similar in looks to my old Nokia N97, but so, so, so, so much more powerful – a full Linux system on a piece of hardware that fits in my pocket :). No, it REALLY is powerful – since I got hold of it, installed a few apps (the full Linux kernel for a start!), I’ve been totally in love – if this is Moore’s Law, long let it live…

But seriously, this ‘phone’ (it’s actually a small tablet PC with telephone capability) is fucking awesome – add a bluetooth fullsize roll-up keyboard and you have in your pocket a fully functional PC. The OS means I can install MILLIONS of open source applications to do anything I want – I’ve been mostly cracking wireless networks thus far (yeah, yeah, I’m a kid a heart), and informing the owners of their lack in security*

Hmm, other stuff…well, I fell over carrying 3 cases of beer and bruised my coccyx before shitmas – now THAT’S fucking painful, but please note I never dropped the beer, so all is good mostly there πŸ˜‰ still gives me gip though and has stopped my sit-up regime for the time being (and there was me almost with a six pack πŸ˜› ).

Anyway, that was my weekend, looking forward to work next week (no really), and if anyone wants to buy a slightly used Nokia N97 – get in touch πŸ™‚

Ciao πŸ™‚

Oh yeah…COYS!

Yid Army! πŸ˜€

* I’ll get around to telling them at some point…

Mid week football

Tonight Spurs host Fulham in the FA Cup quarter final replay…the wineer plays Portsmouth in the semi final (with the added bonus of a home draw) – woop, woop!

Also tonight, Aston Villa play Sunderland and Man City play Everton – to give us a bit of breathing space in 4th place I’d like to see Sunderland and Everton get all the points…

Oh, and at some point yesterday I broke 68000 hits πŸ™‚

Yesterday I got fed up with the ancient mobile I was loaned while my N97 was in for repair so I bought a backup phone – a Nokia (I like Nokia!) 2330 Classic…and it’s very nice πŸ™‚ of course, this led to a phone call from Regenersis at 4.45 yesterday afternoon to let me know my phone was done and ready for pickup – typical huh?

So I’ll shoot over there in a little while and get it πŸ™‚

Why do I get nagged for not blogging when Bu'er hasn't blogged in MONTHS?

It’s not fair I tell you…

And so, a blog πŸ™‚ shall I mention football? hmm…we gave away a 0-2 lead to end up drawing against Everton (and Defoe missed an extra time penalty that would have given us the win) so maybe not eh?

Work? shall I blog about work? much as I love my job – I don’t think so…

So, what I’ll ramble on with is my phone – the Nokia N97 πŸ™‚

It’s a lovely phone, and now I’ve managed to de-brand it (getting rid of the Vodafone crappy splash screen and useless link on the screen that you always tend to hit), and update the firmware – it’s fecking brilliant!

The touch screen is very good (not quite as good as the iPhone’s, but the best of the others), it’s fast opening apps, web browsing is faster than the iPhone (Marina has one and, being the geek I am, I opened my blog on both phones and mine was about 6 seconds quicker than hers πŸ˜› ).

I like the way the iPhone lists SMSs in a conversation format so you can follow the thread, rather than in a list – so I found an app for my phone to do that πŸ™‚

Also, my phone, with it’s 5 megapixel camera is FAR superior to the 2 megapixel offering on the Apple phone πŸ™‚

Um…that’s about all for now – have a couple of short stories:

Apparently I’m off to the theatre on Saturday – Marina has tickets for ‘Misanthrope‘. I’ve not been to the theatre before so it should be an experience (and Keira Knightley is in it so I can perv her). I suppose it makes a change from hanging about in pubs…

Almost a week…

Since I got my new phone πŸ™‚

Didn’t I mention it?

Well, I’ve now got this bad boy:

Pretty cool eh?

I used to have a phone with the slide out keyboard before – the HTC something-or-other and that wasn’t really much good. This phone however is the dog’s nuts πŸ™‚
