No, I think I ought to take you along instead, so you can persuade me to finally buy a new phone instead of still using my old one!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I spent a lot of money today... One of my external discs started acting up a couple of weeks ago... high time to get all the data off and onto a new disc.

All other hard discs were full so I found myself in serious need of more storage space (Quite serious need actually: earlier today I started watching Babylon 5 end-to-end. While watching I wanted to use the optical drive for something else so I tried copying the episodes from the DVD to a hard disk -- but couldn't find 4.4 GB free space anywhere on any disc ).

The solution I opted for, was to go buy a NAS device with room enough for four 3.5" HDDs.

The problem is that such a device really doesn't do anything on itself; you also have to buy discs for it! -and in my case; a router (My very first (W-)LAN ).

And since I was spending a small fortune anyway I also picked up a new keyboard - the one I'd been using the last couple of months was my 'spare' and I'd grown seriously tired of the cord - I just can't stand all those wires across my desk; mouse, monitors, keyboard, you name it...
At least the keyboards I usually buy are relatively cheap (quite cheap actually, since they rarely last more than a year or two of my use anyway )

I think it looks like the kind of toy you'd find in an Apple store!

Some sparkling wine. I will go to the cinema tonight with my sis and sharing some is twice the fun.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Found some awesomely hilarious prints for sale that combine my two great - and generally incompatible - interests: sci-fi and clothes.

Check out http://www.etsy.com/shop/wooszoo

I ordered the Jango Fett, Jar Jar, and Scout Trooper ones. I can't link to a pic of the Jango Fett one as I got the last one for sale, but the Jar Jar and Scout Trooper ones should give you an idea of how fun these are. The outfits are SO well-chosen for each character.




They are going to look amazingly idiosyncratic once I get them framed and hang them up.

auntiehill: Yeah, they're pretty funky.

The Jango Fett has been restocked now, so I can link to a pic of that one too. I think CdG suits him...



I haven't quite decided where I'm going to hang the three pics. I figure maybe one in the hall and a couple in the sitting room. I actually have more empty wall space in the kitchen, but they're not really kitchen sort of material.





I went shopping today and picked up some nifty dark-green cords and a pair of tobacco suede chukka boots from Zegna, and a navy wool bowtie and cornflower blue pima cotton sweater from RL. With the boots and the sweater, I think part of me is wanting Spring to arrive!
