  1. Wisdom Teeth

    My Wisdom Teeth have slowly been growing for a couple of years now, I really do wish they would hurry up and finish... they appear to grow a bit, then do nothing for 6-8 months then grow a bit more. Usually they don't bother me much at all when they grow, a slight discomfort but nothing more.

    However these last few days it feels like a bomb has gone off in the back of my mouth, one minute my mouth will be fine then the next it will feel like someone is trying to drill in to my mouth for hours at a time.

    Not great at all, Ive not been able to concentrate on much and have found it really hard to stay asleep without waking up every hour.

    I never really understood how a tooth growing could cause so much pain, but now I really do understand. Anyway rant over! I hear the pain of them growing is nothing compared to having them taken out, so ill be quiet and hope it never comes to that!
  2. Domain Squatters

    Around 2 months ago i decided I wanted my own domain to use for email and not the @hotmail.com address I had used for years.

    The .com of the domain i would have liked was taken by someone just using it to display a page full of adverts, so I thought oh well and registered the .net instead.

    Anyway fast forward to today and an email arrives in my junk mail from tom@easydomainrecovery.com which said:


    We thought that you definitely need to know that right now the .com version of your domain is secured by Easy Domain Recovery and is available for purchase at our page.

    What we do is take different measures to help you promote your brand on the Internet. Little things' effectiveness can compare to securing .com to a domain with any other extension. Everyone knows .com, a lot of users will intuitively seek you at .com extension so don't give a chance to anyone else to use that advantage of yours.

    There are third parties who may be interested in your domain. Many people out there reserve .coms to existing sites and domains in order to make profit of 'em. We may sell the domain to any of these persons and businesses but this is you who decides whether or not we do so. Please choose one of the following:

    Secure your domain right now!
    Let it go (unsubscribe).
    I thought to myself i bet he has registered the domain and wants £100's for it, so i checked the website he had linked to and it turns out he wanted $100 for the domain.

    I would have never paid $100 for it as i refuse to help people make a living from buying random domains to sell on at insane prices. I then did i whois on namecheap.com to see when he registered the domain, it turned out the domain wasn't registered to anyone so i instantly clicked buy and now own the domain I origionally wanted for $8.81

  4. The speed I work at

    In less than 24 hours i've managed to type 2903 words, do a loads of screen shots and even go though and check the document ive been working on.

    For me thats great, in other assignments where ive had to do 3000 words i must have spent well over a month researching, struggling to understand what i'm supposed to be doing, deleting stuff ive done or simply just re wording half of it and generally feel like ive wasted a lot of time.

    Wouldnt it be nice if it was possible to work at that speed all the time? that would mean the majority of essays ive had this year would be out the way in less than a week leaving months to work on my final year peoject.

    Maybe im just a slow worker? the majority of the time i just find it hard to work at a decent speed.

    Then again I a look at guides and tutorials I have done for Digiex like the How to hack a 250gb sata drive to work in the 360 guide and realise i typed 1400+ words and did loads of screenshots and made the post presentable in less than an hour. Going at that rate I could produce an essay worth 50% of a module in 2 hours... but yet it takes me weeks!

    I don't really know the point of the blog post, buy hey i've not done one for quite a while now so figured I would post what I was randomly thinking.
  5. Digiex Merchandise

    So i have not done a blog post for a long time! I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to share a photo of the Digiex Mug and Tshirt i got this Christmas from Curlysteve and Nimrod.

    Nothing like a good cup of tea in the Digiex mug when i wake up on a morning
