Thanks to a handy WordPress attack (some info here), I’ve hardened my website’s security, it should be harder to spam or exploit, and while I’ve been busy I’ve finally added something to  deal with this silly cookie law thing (that little bar at the bottom that you hardly noticed). Pretty much all I’ve done, thinking about theme changes but just can’t find a starting point I like.

42 Inches of awesome, best £1 I spent 🙂

Turns out you can get a 42″ TV in a Fiat 500, its just not easy. Just need to get it upstairs n figure out what to do with the 32″ one in my room. Or I might be nice n replace the parents 42″ HD ready one, hmm, nahh I’m keeping it!

I may have slightly ignored this new eu cookie law thing, sounds like it effects every site, not like I’m that popular to be noticed I’m behind

Room upgrade All Done.

by on May.21, 2012, under News

Its been a while but I’ve finally got a better room.
It was done in a few stages so took longer than a simple redecoration, partly because it involved changing rooms and partly because there was a lot to do and I have a lot of stuff, but its finally done.

The first stage of my upgrade, involved emptying as much as possible of my new room, to make room for new built in wardrobes and a new desk. The wardrobes are built in, with sliding doors hiding drawers and shelves, a hanging area, and room for my snowboard. The desk’s just a big desk with built in drawers and a computer bay.

Stage 2 was to make room in my old room for the bed and wardrobe that had to come out of my new. This involved the complete removal of my old wardrobes desk and cupboards, after moving everything out of them first obviously.

Stage 3 was once everything was out and my stuff in, to connect everything up properly, my computers connected to the TV working as a DVD player and console. As part of the wiring everything up, I’ve got myself a 5.1 surround system as my old 4.1 speakers wouldn’t fit the room.

Stage 4 is my book case and TV stand, the last thing needed to fit all my stuff properly.

Not really as part of the room improvements, but I’ve also got a new Virgin Media Tivo box and internet upgraded to 60Mbps (that’s your average mp3 downloaded in under 1s), they claim its so fast YouTube video’s will never buffer, never had a buffer problem with the 10mb so nothing special there, but new games download in under an hour so that’s good :). The Tivo’s pretty good a nice upgrade over the V+, the TV guide looks better and its quite responsive, series linking is better as you can tell it to only record new episodes and ignore repeats. Sothat’s pretty good, oh and its plugged into the sound system so the Tv sounds pretty good 🙂

So yeah bigger room, better Tv, PC as a console, I think I’ve all the tech kit I need 🙂 Maybe some computer upgrades for a little more power and speed but I don’t really need them yet. And to finish off a bit of art for the walls as I’ve gained quite a bit more wall space than I used to have.

…but only have the default WordPress ones now, maybe something I lost in an upgrade or rebuild. Shame I can’t remember what I was linking to
