Happy new year folks.

As for resolutions:

-> Finish my diet. Lost 3 stone on it. Given I've lost so much weight, this isn't a blanket "lose weight" resolution.
-> Get a job I actually like. I failed this previous years.
-> Find true love! Nah, just messing with you.
-> Do something cool/awesome, what? I don't know.
-> Finish my doomsday device.
-> Go down as the first man in history to eradicate all life on Earth, to remind generations to come the raw destructive power one man can possess.

Happy new year!

I had my most hyped up night of this year. I drank 2 light beers, ate a toasted cheese sandwich and went to bed at a sensible hour.

This year I strive to be more normal and boring than ever before.

Gonna tweak my budget. Get an expense account going for said budget. Go to bed early. Eat well, sleep well. Finish gathering my deposit and buy a house.

Then casually stroll on the wheel.
My life will resemble the movie 'The double' in no time!

Happy New Year everyone.

I've already broken three of my New Year resolutions. Perhaps I ought to wait till the end of the year before deciding what they are.

How do you guys say 2015?

Is it...

A - Two-Thousand Fifteen
B - Twenty-Fifteen

Or C: WHATTHE****ITS2015ALREADYGOODGODWHATWHATWHAT

Personally, I use option B, but I did use option C earlier this morning!


It's back, baby!

Option A! Where I live, you'd get shot if you used option B.

Me personally, I use the option A format for current and past years. Upcoming years I generally say with option B format. "Two thousand fifteen" sounds normal to me, whereas "two thousand thirty" sounds really odd. "Twenty thirty" sounds much more proper.

And the battle has begun...

Mine are 1920x1080 and 2048x1152 which is my main... and then my phone is 1280x720 4.7" 24-bit 316 ppi ClearBlack OLED with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3, not the best but then I got it for just £150~ compared to my previous £550 phone... [After it completely malfunctioned... and the temporary replacement £80 phone cracked in the display]

Not bothering detailing the monitor lol but the 1080 display is the Pro 2 and the 1152 is a crappy Dell monitor...

DevilLiger, it happens

That's an odd size.

Yup I did say that... I got it free in a deal so not had any need yet to buy a better one



EDIT

Having said that, it does allow me to have three apps in Windows 8 open at the same time... so I might be looking for a larger 4K resolution screen in future as my Pro 2 apparently does support that...
