Missing out.

One of my best friends is getting married at the end of next month in the UK. (e:ladycroft) and are are lucky enough to be going.

As is normal before these kind of things, my friend is having a stag party (bachelor party). It's going to be a weekend go-karting, comedy, drinking, (probably some breasts thrown in for good measure) in Edinburgh in Scotland. I've been looking forward to it for months, and it's supposed to be next weekend.

And now I can't go.

Why? Because work want me to go to Albequrque in New Mexico to visit a potential system vendor. It'll be a total of 21 hours flying there, for a 2 day meeting, then 21 hours flying back. It's 14 hours just from Doha to JFK, non-stop.

Economy all the way too.

And tonight I'm going to have to tell him. :(

Windows 7

So I went ahead and installed the Windows 7 Beta to my laptop last night.


I have 2 hard drives - one with my standard XP install, the other had Ubuntu on it (never worked with it properly - just wanted to install it for a look-see). 'OK', I thought, 'lets overwrite the Ubuntu with Win 7'.

Installation went fine (very quick, even on my 3 yr old laptop), but now I've lost the ability to boot to XP. Windows 7 can't even see my XP drive. Luckily all my data is stored on an external drive, so it isn't lost, but that now means I have to re-install all my apps on Win7 while I try and get XP up and running.

It's going to be a fun weekend!

So it's all working now. Jason - your advice worked like a charm - I can now access my XP drive from 7 and run whatever programs I need to. I also fixed the bootloader problem, so I can switch back to XP whenever I want.

Hello World!

Hi Everyone.

So - here I am. Just a quick post to get me off the mark and say Hi.

It was so great to meet so many of you at the NYE party, especially as (e:ladycroft) speaks so highly of you all. I had a great time, and I'm sure we'll be back soon for more shenanigans.

I'll try and get some photos and stuff up, and get my profile pic sorted.
