I never thought I’d say I miss…

Streamyx, but actually I do!

Current equipment – Pentium II 333mhz, Windows 98 and a crappy dial-up connection.

So yeah I did manage to get on the plane the second time, I didn’t miss it again, flight was smooth, slightly earlier than planned they gained some time. Watched a Spike Lee movie on the plane “The Insider” with Clive Owen, not too bad, might review it later, and had a few ultra strong Gin and Tonics and passed out.

I’ll try and upload some pictures, but flickr takes forever to load so I’m not sure how many I’ll be able to do, I got some nice ones yesterday of the Malvern Hills.

Did an 8km walk up to about 1300ft, pretty tiring, totally not used to walking.

Was beautiful though, if rather windy and cold up top at the beacon (the highest point in the range).

I’ll try and sort out a few pics after lunch and get some uploaded from yesterday!

My Moms addicted to Flickr now too, but she goes down the library to look at it.

She’s so excited about her new camera, I bought a Panasonic DMC TZ-1, 10x optical zoom, 5 megapixels etc..

Excellent little cam, shame about the high noise at higher sensitivity ISO, but I guess they will fix that as they go along.

It takes great macro and very nice scenery and the flash metering is good so indoor portraits look nice too.

I’ll post a review and some samples from it when I get back probably on DigiSniper.

So Hi and Bye for now, off to have some bacon and eggs for breakfast it’s 9.30am here.

Will be back later with pikchures and stuff.

    If you were using WinXP with the Pentium II 333 MHz, you may need to press the turbo button for better speed.

    tigerjoe: Dark chocolate orange, evil! If you want one let me know..

    spiller: Yah was “The Insider” on the plane, not sure why. Yeah earl spiller is right about the hole 😉 He was there for a week afterall..

    michael: Yah Organic pork chops with stuffing and new potatoes, carrots & runner beans last night. Pork pie and salad for lunch today, pub lunch yesterday and beef & baked potatoe tonight.

    James: WinXP with this machine would be suicide.

    bacon and eggs – yum!

    hearty english breakfast indeed, not like the cuppa milo and wholemeal bread things here.

  13. Galvin August 11, 2006 at 12:08 pm #

  14. in August 11, 2006 at 12:18 pm #

    Glad to hear you’re having a good time. I assume you had arrived before all the airport craziness started.

  15. Hijackqueen August 11, 2006 at 12:56 pm #

    how much is the digi cam cost?

  16. tigerjoe August 11, 2006 at 1:34 pm #

    I’ll trade you a pint for a pair of Terry’s oranges Bro.

    Feel free to adjust the barter measures if they’re not 99p anymore.

    Michelle: Aye, can’t beat a proper breakfast! Bacon and Mushroom sandwich this morning!

    Matthew: Yah but it absolutely refuses to work with the British phone system, I bought 3 adaptors, 2 splitters, 1 reverser, 2 new cables and it still didn’t work so I gave up.

    in: Yah man thankfully, I arrived just the day before Birmingham airport went into chaos.

    Hijackqueen: I got it for RM1700 including 1gb card, original case, travel bag, screen protector and a spare original battery. Normal kit price of the above without the battery is RM1599.

    tigerjoe: Sure no worries, I’ll put em on me list.

    foodcrazee: Meals are always heavy in UK, we did walk 8km that day, so we deserve it 😛
