Random ramblings about not necessarily anything in particular, and not much more....
Don't you love it when sisters play nice?
He often goes a little crazy, but his shows are fun, and often full of decent investing ideas (but do your research before you follow blindly). Sometimes people forget he's actually a bright guy behind all the showmanship etc. Take a look at his passionate appearance on CNBC a year ago, basically predicting the current market situation (and when I say basically predicting, I mean him using phrases like "the banks will go bankrupt")....
I always loved Letterman - he runs the late night talk show of choice in our house (although I do occasionally get a craving for The Word on drunken Friday nights). But last nights episode was a bit of a classic (if you live under a rock, John McCain decided he needed to fly back to Washington and bail on Letterman at the last minute).
I never normally drive that fast when Heidi's in the car. I think I'm scared of a reaction like this....
So the markets are going crazy, everyone's 401k is taking a nosedive and some of the big companies are disappearing off the face of the earth. It must be getting a lot of press back home as I've had a call from my Dad making sure we're ok, at the insistence of my Gran, who must have taken the "meltdown" word for it's literal meaning.
Things are getting increasingly weird over here in the run up to the election. I think this must be my third now, so I should be getting used to the lies and stuff that flies about, but I'm not. Maybe it's the four year break in between, or maybe it's just getting a little bit more ridiculous these days.

Not sure who's exactly, and definitely not sure about the sheepskin type interior going on, but for the people out there that need their very own hiding place inside their home, this could be the answer. The link for this is here, but you'll need to click around to find it as they have masking on all the sub pages of the site. And while you're there, you can check out some of the other slightly weird stuff (like Man with Prick sculpture - "The penis of this sculpted a man is completely out of proportion to the rest of his body. While proud of his huge member, the man is unable to move because of its staggering weight." Apparently)
Today, my life improves in the following ways:
• decrease in call set-up failures and call drops
• significantly improved battery life for most users
• dramatically reduced time to backup to iTunes
• improved email reliability, notably fetching email from POP and Exchange accounts
• faster installation of 3rd party applications
• fixed bugs causing hangs and crashes if you have lots of 3rd party applications
• improved performance in text messaging
• faster loading and searching of contacts
• improved accuracy of the 3G signal strength display
• repeat alert up to two additional times for incoming text messages
• option to wipe data after ten failed passcode attempts
• Genius playlist creation
Actually, that's just the list of improvements my iPhone is getting, but as it's an integral part of my life since I got it, I'm sure the improvements will be a direct pass through.
This post is especially for my gorgeous wife, who spends more time in sales than I think she'd prefer (but she's damn good at it if the commission checks and rewards are anything to go by).
Basically, what upper management does is sit around and decide that in order to increase sales, they need more cold calls, more meetings and bigger pipelines. Pure genius.
Details will be announced this morning at a press conference, but I know of at least 2 households that are going to be extremely happy about this.
Pete's on his way out. Nothing to do with the turmoil over at Newcastle of course, but looks like we're going to have to add in an extra trip a little further south when we go home now.
As always happens, I end up saving a load of stuff to post, and then having such a large backlog that it never gets posted. So, the quick link version of a post..... Click at your peril
I realize I've been a bit of a slacker for posting not much on here in recent weeks. I will try harder, but the will to jump on the computer when I get home at night has somehow left me, and I've been doing other stuff (like reading, you know, books and stuff).
After the mystery surrounding the last couple of days, it's not really a surprise that he's gone. I'm kind of dumbfounded now - the club is once again the laughing stock of the nation, we're managerless a few weeks into a new season, and I can't imagine who would actually want to walk into this job given the circumstances of Keegans departure (he stated he was forced to have players in his squad who he had no interest in).
