Thursday, May 7th, 2009
Well here is its, Windows 7 Release Candidate, the final version of Windows 7 which may be released in August 2009.

I’ve just taken some time out to download the 3GB download, and install this 64-bit Release Candidate to have a look.

I’m still a fan of Windows 2000 Professional, although a bit old these days, and have resisted the temptation to move/upgrade to Vista, apart from on my gaming rig because I needed DirectX 10 for the games.

Quite a few other colourful themes as well.  For oldies like me that like the “classic theme”, the Windows Classic Theme is still present! After 10 minutes of fiddling, here’s my desktop!

  Would I upgrade, not at present.  But Nice picture of a Male Siamese Fighter though!

These times are changing…

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

These times are changing it’s been five years, I’ve been blogging, and the software I’ve been using has run it’s course and it’s time to upgrade to something more current. Over the next coming months, I will try and merge aquablog and our house blogs into one blog, with different categories, rather than two seperate blogs which is how they exist at present. This will allow me to blog in more specific categories, fish house, garden DIY, car, computers, internet etc, you get the general idea. So you can select a category (section) to read, rather than ready all the rubbish I blog about.  The FishHouse Blog! and Our House blogs haven’t moved and are still there. Just click the links to access them. Eventually they will be merged into categorys (sections) here.

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside - Not!

Friday, October 21st, 2005

I wouldn’t normally visit a Seaside resort, I hate all the Kiss Me Quick hats, and red dummy candies.

Today I visited the sleepy town of Porthcawl in the rain, where the shops still close for lunch between 1.00pm - 2.00pm. I thought shops closing for lunch breaks were a thing of the past. So here’s a tip, try and visit before or after lunch, or you’ll have to kill time, like I did for an hour, eating chips, drinking diet-coke, on the “prom”.

Aqua Tech was the reason for my visit; And if there’s any reason for me to upgrade to Tropical Marine this tropical fish shop is the reason. A fantastic collection of well stocked and cared for Tropical Marine fish. Established since 1973! The shop owner is very friendly, which I think is missed from many large aquatic stores today.

On returning, I also visited the Parrot Cichlids again at Wyevale Garden Centre, Pyle. But decided against the purchase of man-made, genetically altered Cichlids.
