Synching your iPhone with podcasts is a good idea. Slightly less good idea: not synching your playlists again after you've removed them.

I am musicless, oh noes...

There were housemates in the living room when I came home from work. There was Mythbusters on telly. Spent time talking and watching things. Was good.

Went out tonight with Pol to TGIF for nommy foods and cocktails. Mmmmm mojitos. Talked, had fun, went home. It was good as well.

Had a word with Random about XP being an arse. Got handed XP English disc which I am now installing way ahead of schedule as Dutch install was corrupted. 20 .dll errors when booting not good. Strangely enough I know how to fix all of them, but that involved entirely too much faff and time, so installing the Emglish version now. I secretly am a masochist. There is no other explanation...

The version of XP I installed turns everything into Dutch. It automatically directs me to the Dutch Microsoft page, puts Dutch names in Firefox etc., etc. Having already had to request geek support to be able to access my most important folder on C: has not put me in the best of moods. Currently flapping and rather pissed off. Meh.

SP2 not downloading. Not telling me why not, just sitting there twiddling its thumbs with no movement whatsoever.

20 minutes later: Ah! It has decided to start downloading. Ooooh, I'm excited now. Will it all get here?

10 minutes on: We have movement! We have a complete download! It's going to do something! It's...

...inspecting settings and configuration. I'm getting myself a drink.

5 minutes on: Still checking. You know, I may want to get a copy of XP that is up to date. Yeah, it'll be expensive, but also a damned sight faster...

5 minutes on: Installing! And checking. And more installing. It's going somewhe...oh. It stopped. And now it's cleaning up.

Reboot!

No, I do not wish to turn on automatic updates, thank you. I'll do that later.

And here we go with SP3. My life is so exciting...

Have a 13:00 start, so I'll be home around 21:30. And then I will get to geek around with installing XP and transferring all my data around as well. Hopefully by tomorrow I will have a fully functioning machine again.

Home again. Well, not home home but on home soil again. Arrived last night and spent the night at [livejournal.com profile] the_ladylark and [livejournal.com profile] hobnobs's place in preparation for geeking today. Slept in this morning and after getting breakfast set up stuff and took the machine completely apart for a thorough cleaning.

Afterwards, faffing with different components happened and the verdict is the motherboard being shot. Swapped motherboard and powersupply and also swapped the video card. Machine works, fcvo work, as the main harddrive lacks an OS. That will be arranged this weekend. So yay for successful geeking.

And now I'm off for curry!

At Liverpool airport now. Had a complete brainfart and nearly boarded a KLM flight to Amsterdam. They nearly let me too. Was only until the second boarding person saw the pass that something went bing.

Note to self: The remark 'I thought there were a lot of suits on this flight,' will not earn you a lot of brownie points with said suits within earshot.

Now sat here drinking a cappucino served in what can only be described as a soup bowl. Mahoosive is the best word. I'm hoping it will keep me going until I get to Nieuw Scheemda. That should be...about five hours from now at the earliest. Help?

ETA: Okay. iPhone's location finder sucks. Greater London?
