Google comes to the rescue

Tuesday, November 30th, 2004 | Life

The day has arrived – I finally found a practical use for Google’s Desktop Search. After having it installed for like a month and using it a total of half a dozen times to which it never returned any useful results I have finally used it and been sucessfully. Maybe it is not such a waste of space after all.

Don’t get me wrong though, a month and one sucessfully usage is far from great especially considering I have to have an application running in the background and sitting in my system tray. But at least it is a step forward.

The problem actually began last night when I saved a text document, in what I thought was Desktop. Well I can only presume that’s what I thought, I don’t really remember. Anyway when I came to find the text document this morning it wasn’t there.

I was about to start trawling through all my locations when I remembered Google Desktop. So I opened the page up and ran a search for some text I knew was in the document. And the text document came up sitting in the root of my hard drive. Cool :).

A bad day in peace town

Saturday, November 27th, 2004 | Life

Well I don’t actually live in peace show and to be honest I don’t even know what REM were refering to when the sang about what a bad day they had, had. But the end result or to be more precise the point is that my day as been far from the greatest day ever. Which sucks because I love Saturday.

This morning I was excited – a day of filming ahead of me. Due to certain cancellations though this never occured. So I decided to head off into town in which I blew almost 20 on DVDs. So, so far I have wasted a day and lots of money.

The latter part of the afternoon I spent in an argument with myself about the theory behind appologises. It was quite interesting but never the less I don’t like arguging with myself as half of me is always the loser (although of cause it is always the half of me playing devils advocate as my opinion is never wrong).

Then this evening I spend some quality time a party. I put in an appearance as it was an 18th though I really don’t like parties. I could write a whole other post on this. You see, the idea as far as I can make out is to talk to your friends. And then to make it a real party you play load music so nobody can here what each other is saying. As you can guess I am the type of person who can be found outside where actual conversation is able to take place.

Also the route home was filled with chava’s. Out of intrest, I saw a DVD or book or something in HMV named "chav!" which annoys me. Being a chava is not something to celebrate, they are not a welcome part of our society! That is another post that I could fill with content.

Still things are getting better or so I hope. I am cooking waffles and the Joe Schmo Show is about to start. Is it coming to DVD, it is a great show, I highly recommend that you check it out.

Time shall forever stand

Hmm well it is going on a month since anyone last posted on Nerd Federation. So much for rawpulse’s weekly post. Anyway I thought I should post something, I need to learn to post things before I have a total essay to post on the site. What with all the other blogs I have set up to compliment my other sites my blogging time for Nerd Federation has been restricted a little.

I have loads of video to edit together for Nerd Federation although it doesn’t look like that is going to happen any time soon or even ever. Still I have bigger things on my mind. Like my doom for instance as I have my driving test tommorow. I am remaining upbeat and positive although I expect to fail, more people fail first time than pass. Plus I will come up with some fake excuses too. Oh well, see you when I next check in.
