“Boom!” – Steve Jobs, “Let’s Rock” Event

10 09 2008

Well, it may be “Boom!” and everything’s done for good old Steve Jobs (who’s apparently dead), but it’s certainly not for me. Having downloaded iTunes 8 and it working perfectly on my Mac, getting it to work on Harry’s PC was a rather big hassle. First, it wouldn’t install properly. Then, once it did install, everything was pixelated and pink. Finally, having sorted that out, it won’t find my shared library, which is why I’m now downloading my 257 songs onto a memory stick to transfer them over. You see, he used to just use the shared library to listen to my music, but now it won’t work. That’s Windows for you.

I also had a mini Microsoft Office-related trauma involving the mens’ public toilets, a rather large wooden bat and a bar of lead… No, I’m joking. It was actually a lot less exciting than that. My school have just upgraded to Office 2007, and I had to continue a PowerPoint presentation for homework. However, I saved it onto my memory stick, brought it home and… Uh oh. It’s a .pptx file, and I have Office 2004. Whoops! So I hastily downloaded the 2007 to 2004 file converter from Microsoft, and then got on with choosing my Corporate Identity for my ICT course.

Boring, Boring, Boring

8 09 2008

Nothing, and I mean nothing, interesting happened today. I played a bit of Pokémon Pearl on my DS, but nothing else major. I got some reading homework in English, which involves reading a book called Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor. It’s a very, very old book – in the publishing info page, it says reprinted in 1988! I have to read an hour of it by Friday, which should be fairly easy; I like reading!

Tomorrow, I have ICT twice and then Media – that should be fun. I should point out that I don’t know whether it’s Core ICT or Digital Imaging, seeing as my timetable just says ICT or ICT GCSE each time, but either are good!
