stupidity Nov. 10th, 2011 @ 01:57 pm
today it was discovered that one of the machines at work could hurt you if you set up a stupid program with a pointless step and then stupidly opened it during that step (the pointless stupid step unlocks the lid) and then stupidly stuck your hand in. The solution: stop everyone from using the machine, even if they are using it in a perfectly sensible way.

stupid.

Natwest are Crap Aug. 17th, 2011 @ 03:50 pm
I just changed my bank account and credit card. I asked for an increase in my credit limit and they said no even though I have had the card for over a year, always paid on time and have regularly used it, apparently because I have increased my use lately so they want to watch me for six months. Well of course I have increased it, I've just had to pay off a ton of stuff to do with my car, house and holiday and the credit limit is too small, which is exactly why I want it increasing. I don't have a problem paying it, and they should be able to see that. Well sod them. Natwest have screwed up repeatedly, and so now they can't have any of my money.

Goodbye Natwest, hello Santander and my free hundred quid plus decent interest rate.

» littlebigplanet 2 vs Gravity Power
Currently working on my LittleBigPlanet 2 version of the amiga classic Gravity Power.

My LBP2 rocket logic nears completion, in terms of being able to launch various projectiles, collect power-ups and weapons and zoom around the level in Gravity Power style, with my little sackperson riding atop this cunning contraption. The logic is a bit messy, and I could probably clean it up, particularly in terms of the switches between different projectile emitters, but still, it's fun. Now I need to work on some damage counters and such, and I can start to construct the levels.

I enjoyed LBP, but the level design capability was a bit limited. All the logic and sensors and so on make this significantly more versatile, and I am having great fun building this little mini-project. Hopefully I can make the levels look nice and get some followers.
» Little Big Planet 2.
I'm hoping to make a version of the ancient and excellent "Gravity Power" game, so I can share it with yeti, and he no doubt will utterly thrash me.
» meh... are women always like this?
 So there I am, playing Little Big Planet, having a nice relaxing break, and Lisa walks in and suggests that we watch TV. I'm not desperately enthused by the idea, but ok I say, turn off the game and the PS3 and watch as she flicks through the channels, decides there is nothing she wants to watch, and then walks off. why couldn't she just leave me be?
» coalition budget cuts
 As I thoroughly expected, all the leak stories over the past few months have become "not as bad as we thought" on the actual budget cut day. I had a feeling all along that this was an intentional leak of scare stories so that when the big day came, it wouldn't be as bad and people would breathe a sigh of relief. Very Orwellian, they may as well have raised chocolate rations while they were at it.
» bah
 I am starting to tire of other peoples' incompetence and am wondering how I can do something about it.
