Firstly my apologies for this rather short blog. The grammer will probably be bad and the layout apauling, I will try to dress it up when I get a spare minute.

About a week and a half ago I lost my new bluetooth headset. I was gutted, my wife had just bought it me as a Xmas present and I had lost it. What a muppet I am. The headset is a Sony Ericsson HBH-PV705. I receive a phone call from my mom a few days ago telling me that my step dad had found my bluetooth headset.........on the drive way. Oh! Now the weather has been teriable lately, it has rained alot and we have had a bit of flooding. I was thinking "it's not going to work". I collected the headset from my moms and bought it home, it had been sitting in my moms house for a while so the outside of the headset was try. I charged up the headset and tried to use it, the thing WORKED but I couldn't hear the other person and I sounded like I was in a 'bubble'. I decided to leave it near a radiator for a day and try again, this time it worked perfectly Smile. Truely indestructable.

So what other things are indestructable, well almost ever Ericsson or Sony Ericsson device I've had had been indestructable. Apart from a few T68i's but lets forget about them. My old yet trusty Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop has seen some abuse, including my wife treading on it and kicking it off the sofa. Still working as it should and still my main laptop, getting daily abuse for the last 4 and a half years. (Laptop cost a tad over £2000 though so supose I'm just getting my moneies worth. Betty - my old Rover 420, people kept saying "shes on her last legs" yet she managed to do 274,000 miles. Now I would like to say she was maintained to the higest standard and I drove her gentally, though I have never been a good liar. She developed some engine trouble in the end and whilst parked outside my house a 7.5 tonne truck smacked into her and drove off Frown.

I think I've found the replacement to my O2 XDA mobile phone. I, like a few people have 2 mobile phones, one is for business and one is for personal use. The personal phone is a modest Sony Ericsson w810i, which is small yet has some good functions. For business I have a PDA phone which keeps me organised. Anybody reading or watching the news recently should now Apple are planning to launch the iPhone. (Whether it will be called the iPhone is dependant on whether Cisco will let them). Now it looked pretty flashy so I decided to visit the Apple website to find out more. I now want this phone and may even consider queueing when it is launched. For more details on the iPhone visit http://www.apple.com/iphone/. Now will Smailit work on the iPhone? As the device runs OSX we are currently guessing that it will, though more testing will be done when the device is launched.

I started to get my articles onto the WebTechTalk website, unfortunatly I haven't finished as yet. I also have to review the formatting and keywords on the articles I have already uploaded.

Client issues of the blogging period, I do get asked some weird questions. How do I change the time and date from the Linux command shell? (Bash).  Type date --set ="YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM" i.e. date --set="2007-01-13 22:05". If you require more help of Linux or even Windows commands try www.ss64.com.

I get asked about WSUS, uncommon because everyone that wanted to implement WSUS usually has by now. WSUS is Windows Server Update Services and is the replacement for SUS. WSUS allows you to run an automatic updates server on your network, you then point your Windows PCs to that server for there updates. The limitation is that WSUS only provides security updates but it works well, easy to administer and usually reliable.
