I'm back

But you already knew that. You're so intelligent, aren't you?

Currently, the latest version of Acrobat Reader is downloading/installing. Yes, Adobe have gone the 'First download this small app, then we'll f your internet connection in the a$$' route. They might have done this a long time ago, but I didnt know about it, so I'm gonna moan for a bit...

They've redone their website using ajax, which is nice, but clearly the designers are lacking some skills. When you click the 'System Requirements' link, it still brings you to a completely different page, thus undoing any actions you've taken on the download page. Tsk tsk. (I've possibly been studying Usability in HCI too much). And the reason I downloaded? I was sick of pdf's displaying the 'There may be elements of this file you can't see because your computer is a mockery of burning parts' message.

Exams went alright. Perhaps this time, since I actually studied properly, things won't be as disappointing.

Saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory earlier in the cinema. Wasn't as good as I expected. Some funny parts, but it'll never beat the original. Good old nostalgia has made that into a better film than it ever was. Also, apparently I like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang as a young child. May have to buy that on the pretense of giving it to my niece as a present.

I've a number of new Ryan's Rules to post. Also, have another meme I'd like to start posting things under, to be unvieled soon enough. Gotta write some more . Introduced a friend of mine to blogging recently, she's been posting some pretty interesting stuff, check her blog out Brocolli for Breakfast (Hey Beth!).

Anyway, enough from me, how are you?

...and that.
About this Blog
I'm currently playing around with the Layout for my site so if there are any glitches or weird bugs please bear with me. I'm slowly but surely cannibalising someone elses work and making it my own. Going from spiderman to something else altogether hopefully. Any comments please email me: nocent -at-
I'm a fightin', f*ckin, pinchin', robbin', stealin', fleecin', eatin', drinkin' man.
