afternoon all!
Writing this from my Nokia 5800 mobile internet so apologies in advance for any typos or bad formatting.
Mobile internet has certainly improved since I worked in the field (`06-`07) but i'm not yet convinced its quite there yet. I still get the occasional urge to throw said mobile out the window [smile]
Anyway, my PC is still broke and I don't really know why. I've tried a few combinations of OS's and HDD's and it still isn't happy. In particular the performance is very poor, VERY poor. I'm wondering if the mobo is at fault, maybe some sort of heat/power issue?? I am overclocking a Q6600 quite a long way after all...
Consequently I doubt i'll be active online for a while, factoring in a day job, social life and replacing hardware/rebuilding a PC [sad]
It's particularly irritating as i've just been on "holiday" for a week walking the 2nd section of the Pennine Way-90 miles in 6 days, 270 miles for the full route. There were so many occasions in the last week where I was miles from civilization and the only noise was wildlife and the wind. Reminded me of how much I enjoy getting away from big cities and technology every now and then!! The mind naturally wanders whilst walking and i thought up various crazy ideas and neat solutions to programming puzzles... To not have a PC to play with upon my return may see these forgotten...

once I've got a working PC i'll put my photos up for anyone interested in the more remote and picturesque parts of England look like.
