i earned my money :)

Thursday, July 12th, 2001

yeah, i finally got the run of the systems today and have been implementing many new systems which makes life here sooooo much better :) we now got our own internal dns (woop woop!) i wish i’d tried that earlier and also the new dhcp is fully up and running.

i deserve a medal for what i’ve done…. too bad i wont get one :( ;)
got my confirmation letter today from the travel people, so its all set, plane times check out and everything, so no quarms there. just gotta wait the, erm, 51 days until we go and then hoooo zaaaa!

i’ve been watching the rapture ibiza as it happens and its looking good, got my club guide and stuff, just need to get the drugs that will make gowry want to go :) (jk!)

installed win mil on the machine here to take back home, so i should be back up and running on the internal network as of tonite, although it hasn’t caused too many problems, just not been able to preview the website.

gym tonite, woo hoo! i been starting to like it again after i noticed it was making me more tough :D hehe, well i can lift more weight anyway :) i think i’m gonna go the clapham one, cause of the jacuzzi, although i’m not sure if there are many parking spaces outside, nah, balham will do, i don’t need to jacuzzi anyway, its just for wimps :)
so here i sit, uni applications all done and everything like that, just need to get my loan form off and then i can start rich, and hopefully stay :)
so long sukkaz!

why can’t they just get aircon in here???

Wednesday, July 4th, 2001

yes, the question that everyone seems to be asking, why the f*ck can’t adt get air conditioning put in?? i mean, its just too hot to do any work (great excuse, i know :)) but it is annoying too…. grrrrrr! :angry:

anyway, i’m like settled in to my job now, but there still ain’t much to do, i’m looking at redesigning the website, but until it cools down, my brain just ain’t gonna function :lol:

this weekend lark is taking too long to arrive, we’ve finally got enough cash, (and organisation :P) to go and book our holiday! hurrah! ibiza here we come, well, if they got any space left :P
the cars playing up again, methinks the gearbox is on its last legs, but whilst it still goes, i’m still gonna drive it, and then perhaps get a new one when it dies on me :)
gotta get my uni acceptance form in soon, i’ve chosen the course i want to do, just a shame i didn’t apply for it :) so a bit of grovelling to switch is needed, but just for the records - G500 - Kingston University - Computer Science.

ah, and if anyone is reading this and in the uk, log into and put yourself in. then you can try and contact all your old mates. it lists like every school in the uk and goes back years, so should be worth a try! i found umm, 10 ppl :)
bengy + ghekko status:!: - things couldn’t be going much better, well, unless we like see each other more often, and i can quite often be found chanting ‘noo loo, noo loo’ cause i miss her so much :) espec with the holiday coming up, things will be great!

so reality check, i’m stuck in a horribly hot room and have still got 6 hours or so before i can leave… DAMN YOU!

back in the big league

Tuesday, June 19th, 2001

yes my dear friends, i have been mixing again, and it was SO GOOD…. hurrah, ppl were downstairs and it just seemed to get better and better (a few did drift i admit, but it wasn’t so noticeable).

yeah, so i’ve put in my order request to sapphires to try and get them to barter down to £1000 (thats for 2 technics sl1200m3d’s a vestax pmc270a and 2 ortofon concorde pro carts), i dunno if they will but i bloody hope so!

on the gowry front then, hows it going, well apart from a minor hickup on friday (damn hickups!) its going swimmingly :) :P and she seems to be happy too :P
what else we been up to, well not a lot really, just chilling, driving, drinking (ah! you see the order ;)) and sleeping… oh, and of course, having sex :P
hmmmmm…. i hope her mum don’t ever read this….

anyway, fathers day, a fantasic event, me having to get up early to make it back home to give darling father his present (a cool little man in a suit on a skateboard which is radio controlled! :)) but we didn’t have any batteries…. bummer….. :) and then just to dinner, before i left him and spent the rest of the day at cheryls :)
today, ah! yeah, my brakes went, the front one just locked up and was making nasty noises. i coulnd’t afford to fix it so dad kindly said he would pay.

so this morning i took it to the garage, come back at end of day and it all done :) woo hoo! ask dad how much it was ……. £160 madness! they changed the pads, drums and cleaned everything up! wow!!

anyway, i was happy cause the car was fixed, so i got in a drove it off….. like, 1 minute (perhaps even less) it was doing it again! so i took it back tro the garage…

hang on says the guy, and calls another chap over, who promptly jacks the car up (30 seconds) rotates the wheel (2 seconds) scrapes dirt off the inside (5 seconds) lowers it down (1 second) and then proceeds to say its now fixed!!!


well as it turned out, the brake fluid seal was broken and leaking…… so i guess the moral is, believe the signs :) hehehehehe…. what if i’d been on a hill :)
hahahahahahahahaha :rolleyes:
anyway, i’m in a hyper mood now and need to go ring gowza to proclaim my undying love….. or something like that :)

i got a new job, woo hoo! :P

Tuesday, June 5th, 2001

cool, so i’ve now got a new job, well, my old job back really, except there are a few great changes. number one being i get paid double rate (yeah, like £10 an hour instead of £5), number two, i’ve managed to negeotiate the ‘ghekko’ contract, which is actually a lot more important than you may think.

last time i posted i think it was when gowry was staying over for the whole week (i took the week off work) and it was fantastic, so much so, that i miss her loads now (i’m in love god damn you! 8)) so when i was offered a fulltime job again, it was great, except it would mean i couldn’t see g on thursday nites.


so basically, i’ve made it so my contract is only 4.5 days a week, with friday morning off, so i can stay with g on thursday nites! woo hoo! :) oh, and three i only start at 9:30 hurrah!

what else been happening then, hmmmmm, got new speakers for the car, and they are quality, like serious quality, its gonna rattle when all the components are finally put in it :)
oh, and b4 i forget, i need to do a public apology to borka, who i missed going out with last nite, cause i forgot, I’M SORRY!!!! SORRY!!!!! SORRY!!!! :( :( but i know you will forgive me ;)
so yeah, here i am at my new/old? job sitting watching a computer room (i’ll try and sort the cam out again so you can see what it looks like) and basically getting on with my iNETFX stuff (this month we made £487!) this cc business is good!

neglected the group a bit recently (hi guys!) so will make more of an effort to see them, and try and save money in the meantime (i don’t know how, but i am broke again!)

neways, gotta put some posters up now, so need to split….. ciao….

eventful day… not! :P

Thursday, May 17th, 2001

why do i even bother going to work? they never give me anything to do so all i do is sit around doing absolutely nothing :(

Anyway, on the plus side, ordered a new 128meg memory stick for the camera (yes, that is over 400 photos on one stick!) so hopefully the gallery will become massive with the amounts coming on and ordered my new sony phones, which will make cueing up a lot easier :)
Went to wimbledon at about 4ish and basically, well, like, i was just walking out the centre court, when i realised i was in between two massive groups (we’re talking 100-150 people here), just carry on through (i ain’t gonna stop!) when suddenly there is this huge roar and they are running at each other! throwing each other into the road and kicking and punching and stuff! wow! police and stuff, the lot :)
Made me think, i’m gonna go with my ambition to take up taekwondo or summit as they were vicious!

Nan’s birthday :D so had to go round for tea, but left part way through to pick up my new phone, the panasonic coloured thing, cool! now i can send borka musical texts :)

Oh, and finished the coding for my friends, now i just need to put them on :) hahaha….

Might tidy up a bit cause gowry coming to stay, so i suppose it should be as clean as can be for her…. or maybe she should just do it…. :D
