Hmm. Get a permanent job?

Tuesday, February 28th, 2006

I am soo thinking about it. My college year is ending in 3 months time, and then I am alone. But where to work? There is only one place around here where I can easily get a job and that is the Airbus Wing making factory, which, makes the wings for all airbus planes. They are always looking for workers due to their high labour turnover rates, caused by uncertain students who work there. Perhaps, I should see what Business Studies grade I get, and if it is good, I could go in for a managerial level, or if not, I could become a dude who puts the wings together!

In other news, my new HDD comes tomorrow, thanks to help and advice from SpComb and orudge. It is 250GB, and should do me for a month or two. According to the tracker, it is currently waiting in a warehouse in Manchester. Not too far away then, they will probably ship it out from there for a tomorrow delivery.Completely unrelated from my life (until I can be bothered to go and volunteer, at least), the Welsh Highland Railway is progressing well in its rebuilding of its line from Caernarfon to Porthmadog to link up with the world famous Ffestiniog Railway, to create a 40 mile heritage railway, the longest in Britain too!

Time for a new Hard Drive.

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

But I don’t know the first thing about it, since I haven’t done it before. (ever) How does it work? Can anyone point to a page that explains it all? All I can find is DIY pages which are not a great help.

Some answers I want.

Is it possible to get a new hard drive to act as an extension to my current one?

Or does it appear in “My Computer” as a new drive letter, and which whats all this about master and slave, and how does that work?

I am a total noob at this, and know little about it. A little help would be appreciated :O

The magic of home networking and DVD-RW

Monday, February 13th, 2006

I now post from a router, and a new computer. My old computer is used for gaming, and is connected by a wireless router, which gets 100% signal now and then. Iv’e also got into this DVD burning thing, and am burning my assorted avis to DVD. Hurray. I also now have a digital camera, which is good, as I want to take photos of assorted wikipedia article locations Iv’e made.
