Another Xbox headset broken….not built to last…

Indeed, another one down, but this time its just the ear part that’s worn away through usage, and in fairness I cant remember when I bought this one.  With little thought, I’ve not gone for the cheapest one, but this time, gone for a Sennheiser X2 –

I wonder if this will last any longer?

This is also the first post with twitter turned on, lets see if I spam the world… here goes…

Fiverr and a new logo….

Welll I’ve been playing with this blog for two days now and realised i am missing a logo (Fleetfoot is the name of the template i am using), so to resolve this I’ve decided to use  If you’ve not be there before you choose your service and it all starts at 5$ with other options available. I’ve kept it simple and gone for a retro look in black/white  and grey so if i change the template it should still work for me.

I’ve chosen a vendor called angeldesign, and once the work is done, it will be there for everyone to see.  you can check them out here:

Once the logo is live let me know your thoughts.





I recently went mad and decided to buy a Chromebook and i am writing this post from it. In fairness, its taken over as my primary device at home with the larger laptop put to one side. I still use a tablet from time to time along with a mobile phone. But, despite some concerns the chromebook does all that i need it to do.

I bought at the value end, so read that as cheap, the basic Samsung model. I could have gone even cheaper and tried an Acer and a HP, but the HP had the worlds worst keyboard and i couldnt type at all.

My biggest issue, is how short boot up us, i find myself waiting to use it and its all ready to go, time is wasted !

Its rare to use the same provider for a number of years but never had an issue, so never needed to move. Check out if you need some hosting. I’ve got a few sites online with them and never really had a problem. The very occasional bit of down time but i can count that on one hand in all fairness.

No reason request seems to be refused, and they even answer the phone if you call. Big Smile

Hello world!

Welcome to or a simple wordpress site…

NO great plans at this point, its just a play thing, something to do, something to try.

Configuration is done, I think, but its fair to say there are many options!

Enjoy your wander about, even if i suspect there isn’t much for you to do at the moment.
