New toy

On the way home from work last night I bought myself a little treat:

Wacom Bamboo 1

It’s a Wacom Bamboo 1 graphics tablet – just the basic model for playing with. One of the things I will start using it for is creating Sketchcasts, which look like a really cool mashup of lo- and hi-tech. Here’s an example which describes what they are all about:

Headset problems

I’ve got a Logitech 250 headset, which I mainly use for Skype calls. All of a sudden though, it’s been producing the most awful crackling sound, making it effectively unusable.

Anyone know what the problem might be?

Update: Whatever it was, it’s sorted itself now. How odd.


New PC soon…

Just had news that my new desktop PC is on its way and will be here on Monday. Woot!

Then I can get cracking with installing Ubuntu onto it… perhaps a few days off to get it sorted would be a good idea!

My Toshiba laptop is a nightmare right now – it keeps overheating and turning itself off. Not helpful at all.
