Came home tonight to a nasty sound, my biggest and newest hard drive has “The click” but its still giving me data (be it slowly), thank god! I was down at PLE this morning waiting for them to open so i could get a new one and now i patiently sit back and copy off the 120 or so Gigabytes of data that i didnt have room for on my other drives last night.

Yeah so i’m bored, i’ve been messing about with the blog for the past few days, upgrading k2, upgrading the flickr plugin. This just results in all my customisations having to be coded back in.

It’s my birthday today and well, normally that’d be awesome or at least mildly fun, but tonight i’m stuck at home SICK. This has happened before, it’s one of the downsides of having your birthday so close to the winter opening, but it can just make the birthday so miserable.

So it looks like i’ll be doing some work to my car i’ve been wanting to do for a while and one of those choices is wheels. I’m finding it pretty hard to choose at the moment and have it narrowed down to 5 nice looking 17″x8″ rims, some have a +32 offset, others a +35, some are also going to require the 5 stud upgrade.

I’ve put together a diff patch against the swingx project from the current cvs that contains my changes made to the JXDatePicker. First i had to stop the various components from “Cleaning” the date, which envolves setting the time to midnight so that the calculation of the date difference can work.
It was a while ago.. i don’t think its too clean a solution, but maybe someone can take ideas from it and step further with it, i will eventually continue it, just not right now.
The shot from hell.. it has a name, and i’ll share it with you just as soon as i find out. But in the meantime, enjoy. Just think, someone had to drink this! i applaud my artistic style in the layer of liquids. Continue reading
