Gmail

Writing about web page http://gmail.google.com/gmail

Gmail added rich text a couple of days ago, and I also noticed they've fixed a bug that prevented some embedded images from showing, so I've decided to start using them again.

As usual I sent myself test messages to all 5 of my email accounts and sat waiting for them to arrive. After a couple of hours I decided something must be wrong. After another half hour of searching I realised I'd sent the messages from my Gmail account, so Gmail had realised it was a duplicate message (as it was stored in Sent Mail and All Mail) and discarded it! I sent them again from Outlook and 3 arrived immediately! I expect the DCS and ITS ones will turn up sooner or later…

123 – 1234 = 49

I thought of this while I was lying awake last night.

123 - 1234 = 49

Anyone reckon they know why?

Leaving the computer on at night

My computer doesn't like being turned off*, so for the last few nights I've left it on. On one hand this means it works immediately the next morning and I can leave downloads running over night instead of while I'm working. On the other, every time I'm lying in bed thinking of something I should do, I'm tempted to get up and do it immediately because it's only 1 metre from my bed! So I do. This was one of those things. :-|

* When I switch it back on half the time it goes dead after between 1 and 60 seconds. I have to turn it off at the hard switch or the wall and discharge it (press the power button until the light on the motherboard goes off) and turn it on again. Once it's been running for a minute I have no problems. Anyone got any ideas?

Essays

Rant-Alert

When I read something (factual, not a fiction book or something), I want it to get straight to the point so I can get on with what I was doing.

I'd like to be able to do the same when I write, but with 1-sentence essay titles to stretch out into 1500 word answers I don't see how this is possible!

I've finally finished the first draft of my CS122 essay, which I'll edit in the morning afternoon, and it mainly consists of information about the technological advances of CCTV and how the Data Protection Act should protect us. There's not much else I can think of to go into detail about!

I decided the ID Cards debate would be worse as there's a lot of anti-ID Card propaganda available and very few concrete reasons given for the introduction of them!

Thank you, I'm done now!
