I share with you…

… well I’m still going through my pics and altho I’ve now found a way to rescue the files that crash Explorer it’s still time consuming and tedious and Explorer keeps crashing. I’m up to 2005 tho and so far my “selection” folder has about 75 pics. God I have sooo many pics of me displaying my latest hairstyle or -colour – I might turn that into an entry of its own. :)) The many hair-faces of Clarissa.

I’ve also decided to register for organ donation again – I used to have a donor card years ago in Lux. Anyway I’ll wait with that until I’ve moved. What I will not wait with however is registering for Amex BA card because it will make sense to put all my major flat acquisitions on that and collect some serious mileage. So will do that tmw.

What I will also do tomorrow is go see my solicitor – the flat saga is finally coming to an end, and fingers crossed we’ll have the sale completed by the end of next week. Like seriously, oh my God, is it really happening? Yes yes here’s hoping!

Oh, and on my way back from my solicitor I will… pop into O2 and get myself a shiny new toy, a.k.a. Igor the iPhone!!!!! So I was a good girl and waited until after the Apple Keynote, and 3rd party applications should / will be possible, I don’t care what this means in practice, I WANT A NEW TOY NOW!!!!! ! I hope I won’t regret it like the iPod purchase, but I’m sure I won’t. =P~ Oh, and isn’t the Air damn slick too? I’d hate to become one of them Apple freaks but you have to admit that is one hell of a sexy laptop. (sorry Tommy! forgive meeee!) It’s all Tobias’s fault anyway, yada yada Mac Mac Mac!!!! :no

Hum yeah. Dentist tomorrow too. And year-end-appraisal preparation meeting. Now that is gonna be fun (not the meeting, actually writing the appraisal). As you all know I am so great at “praising myself” – it’s like writing a damn job application all over again! 8-| At least I do have the certainty that I have done well – I know this, I have proof. I just… have to put it into words. Yay. *lol*

Time for bed. Over and out.

Why did you regret buying your iPod? What’s so bad about it?

Clarissa said on Jan 16, 2008 at 3:27 pm

The battery life SUCKED so bad. Seriously, like 4hrs for music and less than 2hrs for video. So I wanted to return it but Dixon’s made a huge fuss and I gave up.
Then I gave it to Toma and then later wanted it back (when I’d found a way to replace the battery with a 3rd party one) but then he never gave it me and in the end when I went to visit and wanted to take it back he and his sister were all… sad cuz they’d both have no iPod anymore so I felt bad for them and let him keep it.
So it cost me £250 or sth and I never really used it. :))
Which was partly my fault of course but still. 😛

iPod ROCK!!! Everyone should have one (or two like moi) 😀

I really want MacBook Air, OMG, how sexy, but WAY over priced though, it’s sick. then again I paid the exact same for my Powerbook so…i think it’s because it’s so thin I think Apple should knock off a couple of £100, you know?

You have to take pics of the iPhone. I insist. 😀

Clarissa said on Jan 16, 2008 at 4:59 pm

:)) @ everyone wanting pics (Jimmy too). It doesn’t look any different from any of the other ones you know 😛

But yeah I will of course. 😀

And I didn’t find the Air that expensive, considering its sexiness. And its specs of course, and its specs. :))

Michelle said on Jan 16, 2008 at 5:40 pm

Though I read about the AirBook, it doesn’t even have a CD-drive, you can’t easily install stuff. It’s more or less just a better PDA, and even though it’s sexy, I think it would get on my nerves if I couldn’t use it just like a regular notebook that also has an internal drive – like for watching movies etc.

Clarissa said on Jan 16, 2008 at 6:40 pm

You can wirelessly access any other computer’s optical drive to install things. Tbh I never even install things from CD anymore anyway, I download them and install straight from hard drive.
But yeah the one concern I have with the lack of DVD drive is that I do sometimes watch DVDs in bed on my laptop and that would be made much more difficult (ripping and converting first… wooo or renting from iTunes, which is what they want you to do lol).
Anything else I currently do with my Tommy the Air can do. (which is, well, going online. :)) )

Michelle said on Jan 16, 2008 at 8:12 pm

Yeah, that’s right though. I only install from CD when my system crashes… argh… Does the AirBook have a system that heals itself?

Clarissa said on Jan 16, 2008 at 8:24 pm

Same thing if I remember the video correctly… you restore from the other computer’s drive.

And remember…. Macs never break! 😀 :))

Michelle said on Jan 16, 2008 at 8:54 pm

Mmmmmkay, so you definitely need two computers. Wouldn’t be anything useful to me at least. But a pretty one like that which includes a DVD-drive would be grrreat.

Tobias said on Jan 16, 2008 at 10:23 pm

The external drive for the MacBook Air will cost $99 only (DVD-recorder). I see the problem more with the missing interfaces: Only one USB port, no Firewire, no Ethernet, no audio-in, again a new video port (Micro DVI – other MacBooks have Mini DVI).

Michelle said on Jan 17, 2008 at 3:14 am

You could extend it, use USB hubs and such, though I don’t know how much fun it still is if you have all of those extensions lying around your sexy notebook.

Clarissa said on Jan 17, 2008 at 1:46 pm

Yeah that’s what I said too but Tobias found that too cumbersome.

Tbh I may still stick with the Vaio when my Tommy dies but none of the “inconveniences” of the Air are a huge deal to me as I would be using it purely as an ultra-portable laptop for when I travel. Well, except the watching-DVDs-in-bed issue (and I don’t see myself connecting an external drive. :)) I wanna be able to lie comfortably on my side, turn over from time to time etc, which would be darn near impossible with something like that attached to the laptop)

Tobias said on Jan 17, 2008 at 2:28 pm

But especially for watching-DVD’s-in-bed would the remote access to your PC be useful. I think the MacBook Air would suit your purposes. Maybe the only problem for you could be the not replaceable battery (see SPON article).

Clarissa said on Jan 17, 2008 at 5:12 pm

But the remote access requires the PC to be on. So no “lazily waking up on Saturday morning and staying in bed for 2hrs watching a movie” as I sometimes do now (or “watching a DVD before going to bed and hitting the off button just before I can feel myself drifting off”) – no, I’d have to get up and switch the PC on or off.
Or leave it on all the time, which I don’t want to have to do.
