Fed up…as per…

I am so sick of being tired all day, resisting as much as I can not to “nap”, then when it gets to 9pm or so, feeling so tired I could sleep for a month, then “BOOM”, my brain fully engages in what ever it decides to, to prevent me from switching off and going to sleep.

We bought a new bed recently, and I haven’t even spent one night in it yet. I’m getting so effed of with it, its getting me down.

My brain wants to shutdown at the wrong times, and insist on keeping me awake when I should be sleeping.


I’ve tried sleep aids and they do feck all, I’ve tried drinking alcohol to make me pass out and that doesn’t seem to work (properly) either.
I’m fed up of it now, all I want to be able to do is switch off, go to a nice warm bed and go asleep without waking until morning (and not disturbing anybody else with (perhaps lol) snoring)….


Times are a changin’

And so I start work tomorrow. I must admit I’m a little apprehensive. Maybe it’s because I’ve gotten used to being at home and the fact I wanted to stay at home to bring up Jack.
I’m not saying that I won’t work, it’s just I had little time with Caitlin when she was born because I spent most of my time at work. I just didn’t want to miss out this time.
Maybe I am being selfish, but I can’t help the way I feel. I had such plans but as most of the things in my life, they’re dashed.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not having a go at anyone, such as babs my wife. It’s the situation that screwed us over.
I suppose in one way it would be nice to start afresh but who knows?
We shall see…

Day 133 – Project – Fetch!

As the basic code is now in place a Pre-Alpha release is being compiled and tested.

Initials test include;

  • Code integrity – Does it do what its suppose to
  • Code execution time – Does it hang the system?, use too much system resources?
  • Error traps – Any endless loops, critical errors stopping the application running?
  • Design flaws – Graphic layout all wrong, spelling errors, settings in wrong category?
  • and lots more besides.

The initial planned pre-release date will be 10th of April 2010. This release is purely to get user interaction, and establish any potential flaws with the application package from a user perspective.

So keep tuned.

Also, if you would like to become a team member of the Fetch! Project, please email me for further information.

Seeing as I have just spent the best part of two hours trying to get Download Central and this main blog back online, I have very little time to update people on important things.

Needless to say, the main project I have been working on, XPRunnerNG: Evolution has major breaking news.

As it is now passed my bedtime, I shall update within the next couple of days.

Many thanks for your patients, and to all those querying XPRunnerNG, again, many thanks for your emails, and an announcement for this will be up soon.


PS – In the meantime Download Central has now been placed in maintenance mode until further notice, as somewhere along the lines of doing a critical update, things went drastically wrong. So until I can established what caused this, downloads will be unavailable from Download Central.
