For a first go, I'm reasonably happy, will layer some more resin on if needs be.


Hmm. It doesn't appear smooth. More resin needed?

Has anyone ever had a 360 Play and Charge cable knacker on them?

It wouldn't start charging, so I blew in it and the 360 connectors in case of dust. Nothing, but it suddenly started. But it would only light up for maybe 30 seconds before going out again. So I made sure the cables and battery were all properly seated, tried both USBs on the front of the 360, same result. Even tried my broken wireless controller.

Noticed, then, while unplugging the cable it was flashing green very pathetically and fading. Plugged in again, pulled it out, and a faint red stayed on. Took the plug end apart and can't see any damage to anything, still knackered, very annoying. I assume it's fuxx0red.

Oh, and here's another thing. Don't buy cheap miniscrewdrivers. You know how the make the centre bit grooved so you'll grip it while turning? On these this was so badly machined it was actually frayed, and inserted one of the jagged metal slivers deep into the meat of my thumb, leaving a tiny bloody hole (luckily, the sliver remained attached to the screwdriver throughout). OWWW.

I got a second hand cable and battery from Game for £2.99. Unsurprisingly, no worky. Although I could use it as a wired controller fine.

Got new battery - brand new. Still no worky. A quick google then revealed thousands of hits that they break a lot. I'm going to get a plug and charge kit instead and have two spare batteries.

Can't beat the ancient Greek boxer/gladiator Theogenes:

Quote:
Theogenes and his colleagues would each be strapped to a flat stone within punching range. When whatever passed as the bell sounded, they would fight to the death, unable to circle, dodge, or clinch.

Theogenes never lost in over 1000 fights.

problem with those mugs is when you take one out of the cupboard and they bring all the rest tumbling out as well.

Well today was well spent.

I am yet to get dressed, and have spent the ENTIRE day (well, from 11am ish) playing Rock Band 2.

The only thing to have annoyed me are my fucking cats who won't stop rubbing round my legs, but have plenty of food, don't want to go out, and run away if I try to give them any fuss.

THOSE ARE THE ONLY THREE THINGS YOU NEED, CAT. NOW GO AWAY.

Dude did his time, and takes drugs to control his nutbag disease. He already drives an minicab (the type you can only book) and has done for a while. What's so special about a black cab?

[edit]Except now they've taken his minicab license away as well, for fucks sake. Why let him out of hospital if you're going to treat him in the same way as when he was in it?


I didn't know he already drove a minicab. I know that many people can control such things when they are on special medication, but there have been cases where they stop taking the drugs and bad things happen. I don't know... it's a tough one. I really think he should be allowed to be a cab driver, but then I admit I'd not be comfortable knowing that he was my driver. I'd actually feel even less safe knowing that he was my minicab driver, because the minicabs in London are rather scary.


I'm in two minds about it too.

Srsly tho - I'm all for giving people a second chance, but not sure I'd feel comfortable with someone I love being in a cab alone with him. It's a tough one. If pushed, I'd probably be for letting him do it.

The worst thing is when I get Id'd (which happens all the time for some reason) and they look at my ID and go 'oh. Sorry.' I'm not even very old!!!

Jesus H Christ - I'd never have thought I'd be applauding Michael Cocking Heseltine against a Labour minister. Harman is a fucking disgrace to the country.

On the other hand, I may do babies with David Laws.

FUCKING VLC PLAYER, mind. Jesus.

Digby Cocking Jones - he used to be the head of the CBI. He did a "speech" at an annual general meeting thingy at L'Oreal, when I worked there, and went on about how we all need to work more, get paid less, stop asking for so many holidays and basically just work ourselves to death. He is a cock of Dickensian character and proportions. And I wish him death via gay bodybuilding ninjas.

Bollocks, I forgot about QT. I will iPlayer it some time over the weekend.

Awake, but knackered again, quick shower then the 0703 bus. Motorbike started on 10th attempt yesterday, so that's a good sign, need to book it in for an MOT. I think it just needs a new rear tyre (due to a nail sticking out of the current one).

Woman from freecycle came to collect the bed that's been in my garage for the past 18 months, freeing up an awful lot of space, so I'm happy about that.

Oh well, 9-5 again today and no BBBC action in London for me.

Is she the ex head of the Department of Culture Media and Sport?

If so, about 5 years ago I was at an event which she was speaking at. She was literally wheeled in, did a 10 minute speech like a robot and was wheeled out again.

My impression was that she was literally a performing monkey dancing to her masters tune.
