Flight MCSM003 Has Been Delayed…

24 10 2008

No, I don’t mean an actual aeroplane, silly! I mean that episode 3 of Mr Cheese’s Stop Motion Show will not be ready tomorrow. Once again, I forgot to bring it with me. I could have emailed it, put it on a memory stick, even put it on my iPod, but no – I had to forget. Again. Oh well. It’ll be ready Sunday night, early Monday morning I suppose. On the plus side, today was an inset day, so that was fun! Bye bye for now!

More iTunes Ranting

11 09 2008

Well, after waiting for three hours for the music to download onto the memory stick (including having to start again because I accidentally press Undo), I plugged it into Harry’s computer, opened it and got the message “The file could not be opened. It may be damaged or corrupted.” Hah! Three hours! For nothing! So I got down to business and transferred the songs over the internet connection straight into his Shared Documents, which I didn’t want to do because I knew it would be slower. After waiting for that, I showed him how to use iTunes 8 and now he’s in bed listening to Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple.





“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.
