Miracle of miracles, it would appear my laptop keyboard seems to have slowly returned to almost 100% functionality - what a relief! This helped with all our moods :)
Put the washing on, back into town. This time I actually had a fairly successful shopping session (that NEVER happens) and I bought a cheap kite for Jordan for his birthday (will have to think of something else as well), a fold-away table for the laptop (to help prevent future drink incidents - should have done this a long while ago).. although I have a feeling it's too tall at the moment. Some modification may be forthcoming! I also got a grill rack to go in my new oven (finally! instead of using the shelf as a make-shift grill rack!)
I've also reinforced my bed (fnaar!), and now have the stands as well as the monitor to spray black. I went to Maplins but couldn't get the right components to upgrade my speakers. More research is necessary I feel.
Also, finally, my Stereo-link is back, so I have nice sound from my HTPC :)
Some more projects for this weekend include fitting kissycat1000's 6x9 speakers into her car. After a cock-up with the CD fitter I set up the in-car CD player so it would work on Wednesday. The appointment has been rescheduled for a couple of week's time.
So the only outstanding irky thing is the continuing problem with the Gyration keyboard for the HTPC cutting out all the time. Not bad!
This is a really self-indulgent post but we've all had a good productive day and I wanted to write about it. It's not often this happens so ner :)
