Gothic Samurai Pt 1

In case you hadn't guessed, I have been on holiday. In order to facillitate actually having a holiday, I have barely touched a computer in 2 whole weeks. I could have but then it wouldn't have been a holiday would it?

To enjoy the feeling of being a person on holiday, I adopted the persona of Katsumoto from The Last Samurai - a rather dignified stance but capable of chopping idiots into small pieces if provoked.

I encountered no issues at airports at all (which is very unusual for a Goth) - even the security people were more than helpful as I stood patiently waiting for the 'muppets with gold coloured shite from Argos' to walk backwards and forwards through security checkpoints.

I remained calm and dignified and presently, the very helpful staff opened another lane and beckoned me forward.

An irate 'bizzy-man' ran in front of me but I stayed where I was until asked to walk forward. As I passed through, without issue, the security guard wished me a good trip and I watched 'bizzy-man' getting escorted into the 'touchy' place behind curtains.

The flight was lovely and we didn't crash into any immovable objects - even gravity was having a day off.

We walked patiently to passport control and proceeded to the luggage carousel. Our bags arrived as we approached.

A smooth trip from the airport to our 'home' for the next two weeks was peaceful and upon arrival we were greeted with genuine affection.

Within minutes of arrival however, a conversation occurred that was to be repeated several times - but that's ok.

Family Member - "My computer is not working"
Goth - "You're probably not using it right then"
FM - "But you can fix it right?"
Goth - "I could, but I'm on holiday"
*walks away and turns briefly to say, in a heavy Japanese accent*
"This was a good conversation"

Logistics buddy.

As I still have 2 warrants out for my arrest (attempting to break the sound barrier in a Ford Fuckus is apparently not good) the cnuts wouldn't let me hire a car......

So, I will purchase a Samurai sword and ask them again when we return

Wb Goth!
I hope you don’t have to be back to work on Monday –I will, grrrr… -.
I must admit I’m addicted to my laptop and I didn’t stop my virtual life on holidays, but just as you did when in Katsumoto mode… I would never fix a computer on holidays either, lol.

Stay as Katsumoto, it suits you. Much better than your Vera Duckworth persona.

Ms Kravitz -> work indeed on Monday - when I will spend the entire day wading through crap e-mails. Could be worse...

Daffers -> I have a Duckworth persona? Must be the glasses

Crabtree -> Jack Daniels mon amie - it's the only way to go

I just skewered 42 prawns, first I had to skin 'em and pull the legs off. The trick is to keep calm.

It's amazing how often the number 42 comes up, first it was in that book and now this. It's my shoe size too.

Just as well you aren't my grandson or I'd never get my 'puter sorted.

I was asked to fix a virus-laden pooter while on holiday once. First I formatted the hard drive, then I asked where he kept the boot disk? Oddly, he'd never thought to make one.

At least I was never asked to fix his pooter again.

SpanishGoth dijo...

JJ -> Sounds a bit fishy to me

Pat -> I will fix it, just not when I'm on holiday - or in the same country (oh the joys of remote control)

Mr Farty -> Been there, done that but even I'm not jesus - puters and water do not mix well

[b]i-Blue 747A+ (GPS приемник/логгер)[/b]

iBlue 747A+ - обновлённая версия iBlue 747. 66 каналов (чипсет MTKII), 32 часа работы. Через 3 месяца после появления i-Blue 737, на рынок выпустили его старшую модель i-Blue 747. Отличительной особенностью iBlue 747 стала функция "запись трека". Теперь для записи пройденного пути совсем не обязательно держать включенным КПК. GPS-приёмник самостоятельно запишет путь, который можно будет выгрузить через USB. Позже его можно будет наложить на карты Google Earth или OziExplorer. Все остальные характеристики у i-Blue 747 A+ такие же, как и у iBlue-737 A+.
