With Jason's assistance I finally got the frontpage of DVDs.ie to look a little bit more palatable. I'm still trying to sort out a new backend and am considering upgrading the server hardware as well. The main complaint I've had from people is that the pricing is in Sterling only, which is understandable.
Useless fact of the day - shredders overheat easily. I've been trying to get rid of accumulated junk mail, old bills, receipts etc., this afternoon and managed to upset the shredder. As soon as it cooled down it started working again. Getting rid of all the paper revealed a number of odd items that had been buried on my desk for the last few months.
I'm currently investigating my options in terms of buying a house. I'm happy with the house I rent, but I'm not so happy with the money going out the door every month and not having anything to show for it. So I had a drive around a few "developments" yesterday afternoon.
I still think it's insane that a small to medium-sized house can cost in excess of 250k!
The mortgage lenders seem to have got cold feet over the last week or so with many of them reducing the options considerably. The days of the 100% mortgage seem to be numbered.
I hooked up my Sky+ box to the amp on Friday evening as I'd received the optical audio cable I needed (nobody seems to stock anything longer than 1m in this country!). The difference in sound quality is very noticeable, though the volume levels tend to jump a lot between channels, so you need to keep the remote control close to hand or risk deafening yourself / the neighbours.
On the topic of AV gear...
A lot of people criticise Monster Cables pricing, but I wonder have they seen this lot
Some of the cables listed, such as the Third, cost several thousand pounds for short lengths. I'd love to know who buys this kind of stuff.
