A long overdue update

Hello there veritable plethora of Blogger readers and friends! (Yes I realise only about 2 people, if I'm lucky, will read this; but it stops me from getting bored at 04:34 as I'm too cold to be tired)

As you may have guessed, I'm cold and tired and blogging. "What's brought this on?", I don't hear anyone say. Well, I have signed up to Twitter and I noticed that you can add a Blogger widget! Ham-azing.

Too many things have happened since (feigns checking last post date since I've actually remembered it after previewing what damage the Twitter widget did) December 2007 to go over in detail, so I'll try and keep it short, snappy and interesting (my thesaurus skills are lacking tonight, but my interjection technique is bang on).

I'm getting a heap of stuff from my dad, including a 42" LCD HD Ready TV! Flippin' Nora!
I have dual monitors and an Xbox 360! Ownage!
I have uninstalled Vista and reverted back to XP! Relief!
I tried out Opera but found it uncompromisingly unintuitive and so went back to Firefox and Thunderbird after a brief email export/import scare! Good for me!
I'm looking forward to implementing the Automated Student Attendance System for my Final Year Project! Great!
I've formed and play (badly) in a 6-a-side football team! Healthy!
I still have World Domination aspirations! Doubleplusgood!

And, over the course of the 1 and a bit years, I have found many a program and extension which has helped me on my merry technological way. Here are a few of them now in fact!
CmdHere PowerToy for Windows XP
Link Shell Explorer Extension
"Open File Location" Explorer Extension
Process Explorer
QTAddressBar Explorer Extension
Speed Dial for Firefox
Unlocker Assistant
VistaVG Skin for XP

There's quite a few there. I'll go over them in subsequent posts, just to give me something to blog about. Fun times.
