I installed the copy of Windows XP I downloaded, I came across two problems. The first was my lack of serial number, no problem, I can download a keygen. Now with that hurdle I can clear the rest of the installation with no problems, right? WRONG! Unknown to me (it wasn't indicated ANYWHERE) I had downloaded the first disc of a two disc set. >_< wtf, mate? So every time the installation requested the second disc I had to cancel. What impact did this have in the end, eh? Well, I had Windows XP installed nicely, but with none of the basics. No paintbrush, no wordpad, the cool blue and green XP theme was out the window and I had no means of getting on the Internet because there were no drivers for ANYTHING!

I've learnt my lesson, right? Not really... I'm downloading another copy as I type this hehe.

Okay I need to remind myself never to format and partition my harddrive ever again, especially if the Operating I'm using is on one of those crappy system recovery discs. >_<

I no longer have Windows XP on my PC because I've installed Windows Server 2003 on here, I would have a copy of Windows XP running alongside it. It's just through formatting my harddrive to accomodate the Server software it's now given the recovery disc nothing to work with when installing XP on the other partition. Bah! Why can't they just include the Operating System like how you get it if you were to go and buy it on its own? Cheap bastards!

Anyway yes, I'm currently downloading Windows XP on bittorrent through my laptop. <.< >.> I would pay the two hundred quid for a legit version, but since I lack money at the moment. lolz

The Employment Agency sent me my P45 today, that was most unexpected. Oh well it doesn't matter, I could see myself having to come off their books in a few weeks anyway thanks to the wonderful Job Centre. And besides, since they haven't contacted me at all in nearly a month, it's probably for the best. Hopefully I'll get some *proper* work soon or failling that, I'll sign up with their rivals. Mwehehehe!

lol, this is a very late entry for this day. I'm currently writing this at 2:37am on the 26th February. You gotta love placeholders! :) Anywho today was a cool day, for Sarah's last day of holiday we walked through the park and into town. I'm really happy because for Christmas I bought Sarah a yellow Winnie The Pooh cup because it was the only one they had at the time, there was a Tigger one but since I wasn't sure she'd like this type of cup I missed my chance to buy it because they were sold out. Anyway in the end it turned out she liked the cup and I said I'd get the Tigger cup when I saw it. The problem is for the past two months everywhere has been completely sold out of these cups, I even searched all over the place on the Net to no avail. But today they finally had these cups in stock, I bought Sarah a Tigger cup and she bought me a Piglet cup in return (see piccy). In case I didn't mention it, I'm so happy! ^_^

Anyway we while we were in town we also walked along to the Old Town and got some lurvely brownies in a little sandwich shop. We walked back and met up with Sarah's sister for lunch. After this we walked through the park back to her house, by the time we reached the uphill section of the area we wished we'd taken the bus. Hehe!

I thought I'd write my entry a little earlier today, as could be expected not much happened. And that's my fault because I didn't get out of bed properly until about 2, I woke up earlier and talked on the phone but I'd decided my bed was too warm and comfy to warrant getting out. In doing this I missed calling for a job I was supposed to call about in the morning, guess I'll have another go tomorrow morning. I HATE calling people! :)

I wrote a letter for for my Mother's solicitor the other day and got commended for the professionalism in the layout and the excellent use of English. Woohoo, now if my English was good everywhere else I'd be all set! Hehe.

Oh my, this is the first time in a loooooooooong time where I have had journal entries from ONE week all on my main page. This calls for a celebration.... KITTY PING PONG!Collapse )
