Hello All

yes I did a boo boo and messed up my entire site while testing a new site template, I’ve had to do a clean installation of wordpress then extract all my previous posts from the old SQL database then import them back into this new installation, sadly all previous comments have been lost and there are a few broken images here and there but since my webhost doesn’t give me the option to automate a SQL or file backup’s i had nothing to restore the site with, i think i will be emailing the tech support team for their “advice”.

Other news, Yes i am still alive, the past 10 days I have been suffering with tonsillitis which was pretty nasty, I had a bad fever for 3-4 days which finally went away after 3 days of 2grams of antibiotics & 600mg of ibuprofen per day, I think as I get older the tonsillitis really gets me down, I am normally a very active person so being stuck in bed for most of 10 days really started getting to me.

Gaming News: anyone playing “Feed the Beast“, its a version of Minecraft but its fab, if anyone wants to play and already has a mine craft account let me know and I’ll add you to my server.

Best wishes to all, James

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you all, not a lot is happening at the moment, still working, still playing about with my Raspberry PI and playing Call of Duty black ops 2

Raspberry PI

Published by:

Hello All

In my last post i mentioned that I had bought a Raspberry PI and I absolutely love it. Since I’ve bought the Raspberry PI I have also purchased a USB-2.0-with-Mains-Adaptor, a Raspberry Pi Heat Sink Kit and a Raspberry-Pi-Case that was printed on a 3D-Printed so now I am fully kitted out, so far its been a very exciting project as I am relearning some of the Linux skills that I had and I am learning more everyday.

So far with my PI I have got an Apache webserver running with PHP5 installed, I’ve got the webcam software called “Motion” running which should be live http://puerilis.dyndns.org/iframe.html

See you all soon

Hello dear reader,

Yes I am still alive and kicking, have been keeping busy with little projects at home and am currently playing with my Raspberry PI which is a little micro computer, which has been keeping me busy as its a Linux system and I suck at Linux.

First Post Of 2012

Yeah yeah I know, where have I been, well I am still here, still alive, been busy with a mixture of work, dieting, playing saints row the 3rd, secondlife and now minecraft.

I finally bought the new NAS (network attached storage) unit I was after and transferred all my stuff to it, that took longer than expected.

My plan for the year is to convert all of my DVD’s to electronic format such as divx or m4v but am undecided on which format to go with, I don’s want to have to install special players or codec’s just to watch a movie so the m4v format just seems to work with most movie players.

I am also looking out for some new movies to watch, I love science fiction and I have stuff like Stargate, Starwars, Star trek, but its the scifi anime that really gets my attention, I’ve recently watched “Black Butler” which is so dam funny, but I keep finding myself watching stuff like Ghost In The Shell – Stand Alone Complex which is more scifi / cyborg stuff, if you can think of any dvd’s titles that I might like then please put the name & link in the comments.

I am still waiting for BT (telephone provider) to install their new BT infinity in my area, at the moment the best I can get is about 15mb down & 0.5mb up, BT infinity advertise “up to 40mb down and 8up” even if i can only get something like 35mb down and 7up I would be far better off than I am now paying £16 for a 2mb connection, plus it gives me more scope to work from home and to do online gaming.

Enough waffle for now, peace to you all.

December Update

Well it’s seem that WordPress ate my original post. The weight loss is going well, am now down to about 11.5 stone from 14 stone in 19 weeks and no major side effects. Have treated myself to a new NAS with 8 terabytes of storage.
