Thursdays – full of the promise of the weekend

    I LOVE Thursdays 🙂

    Got my mum’s broadband connection up and running last night – complete with the whole “Install CD? manual? HA! I laugh at you!” then proceeded to plug all the cables in and use a browser (Firefox of course) to configure the router – job done.

    Had to use those power adaptor wireless thingies (technical term) ‘cos her master phone socket is downstairs while the computer is upstairs – connection is good though. Now all I’ve got to do is add a TV card so my brother and me can wire the CCTV cameras into the computer and monitor/record remotely. Well, I do have to show mum how to use email and the browser to look up stuff which reminds me of when my dad was still alive and expressed an interest in computers. I set him up with a webcam and MSN and he chatted to some family a few times. It was only after he died my sister told me that she’d showed him my webpage at some point and he was very impressed – meant the world to me that he thought that. I miss him.

    Got a lift arranged to get to Heathrow Saturday morning (7.30am flight – means we’ve got to be there at 5.30am…harsh), I also found out that Terminal 5 has 1 bar landside and LOADS airside 🙂 and they all open at 5.30am so we’ll be good for breakfast (in a liquid stylee 😉 )

    Dennis’ GF asked me last night if I was all ready to go. My reply? “All I have to do is throw a few things in a bag…I’ll do it 5 minutes beforeI leave.” (I’ll probably end up doing it later tonight – I’m actually too organised to leave it until the last minute).

    Weather for the weekend is pretty good – temperatures around 16-18 degrees (memo to self: take a jumper), so some sight-seeing is the order of the day weekend – the Duomo is a breathtaking sight apparently (Bruno has practically ordered me to go see it…I will), of course the San Siro will be awesome (shame there’s no game there this weekend), and Italian women – oh where to begin…I’ve always been attracted to brunettes over blondes, and the Italian accent is the most sexy I’ve EVER heard.

    Hmm…found some (humorous) phrases:

    Dove è l’oliva più vicina giardino? – Where is the closest Olive Garden?
    Dove disfaccio di questo corpse del bellboy? Where do I dispose of this bellboy’s corpse?
    Il vino è squisito, può io fondle i vostri genitals? The wine is delicious, may I fondle your genitals?
    Diretto me alla tomba del Mussolini, dato che lui era un uomo grande Direct me to Mussolini’ grave, for he was a great man
    Ho dormito con uno dei vostri locals, esso stings quando orino I slept with one of your locals, it stings when I pee
    Nessun contatto, gradisco guardare. Sentite l’odore di come la madre. No touching, I like to watch. You smell like mother.


    And now to do some work…

    1. “I slept with one of your locals, it stings when I pee” – That could be half of Europe.

      Re: Monitoring. I used a TV card for years for exactly that purpose, but now use el cheapo Tesco Technika Webcam on a USB port instead. I have also used kabcam for as many years, and it’s nice and easy to use and does exactly what it says on the tin. Mind you, I need to get my second image back up and working, and that’s not so straight forward.
