Glasgow Bridge Chosen

The council have finally selected the design of a new pedestrian bridge in Glasgow. From a shortlist of six the bridge selected seems to involve the longest walk for a pedestrian…and do we really need another nightclub? Most bizarre is the location – I can only assume its to help with the new finiancial district they are trying to establish. What a waste of public money.

Its My Birthday

Well I’ve finally reached the big 30 today…….and I feel no different to yesterday. Lots of nice gifts – thanks to my friends for them and also thanks to Shak for letting me kick his butt at tennis (wonder what his excuse will be tomorrow).

Asked today whether I’ve achieved all I set out to do by the time I was 30, but to be honest I’ve never really set out any clear goals in life – just as well! Maybe its something I should do for future years. Maybe’s aye, maybe’s naw.

Dismal Rangers

The worst thing about the Man U defeat was the total lack of passion in the game. It’s easy to point out who had the strongest team before the start of the match, but I can hardly think of anyone who showed grit or determination to get the ball. Lovenkrands showed endeavour but had little service. Apart from that only Burke showed enough to suggest he has a rosy future.

As for Capucho & Vanoli – they should be shown the door. I would rather have youngsters playing than those two overpaid diddies. Rangers are now playing for a UEFA Cup place – I just hope they manage that.

PC Upgrade part 2

The pc upgrade is complete and I finally got round to doing a backup. And it worked!! One outcome of the upgrade was how slow XP took to shutdown (startup was fine). A quick Google found a great XP tips site – shutdown is only around 15 seconds now.

Only annoyance is how noisy my processor fan is. A Zalman Flower would solve it, although a motherboard upgrade and a new chip is far more tempting. As well as the flower.
