It's all go here. First my microfilter (splitter) doesn't work, so I can call people while being on the internet (people can call me, though) so I need to research to work out where get a new one at a decent price.
Then I went to Tescos this evening and the car stalled constantly. When I phoned dad he said he had that as an intermittent problem when it rained and he found the solution was to press the brake and the accelerator at the same time. And no-one could work out what the problem was. I'm having enough issues getting to grips with the choke and the actual driving, without this as well. So tomorrow I'm going to be calling a friend of mine's dad, who's a mechanic, see if he can help.
Is it the Christmas holidays yet?
My Tesco value DVD player arrived today, and it seems to work ok. It's not as nice as my old one but since my old one seems to be going, at least this one works. And I do have two on my computer as well. I finished off Fourth Doctor and Leela story Robots of Death, which I really enjoyed. I want to see more of Leela, although I now seem to have done all her stories on DVD. I was quite surprised to see Brian Croucher in it. I already knew it was written by Chris Boucher, so I was looking forward to it.
Edit: The minute I posted this dad found a microfilter on amazon. Oh, what an excuse to buy some books.

I've got out of work on time twice in two days now. I almost don't know what to do with my long evenings. The best thing about ADSL - downloading the new episode of Stargate in about 10 minutes. And it kept on going really slow. The episode seemed to go really slow although I remembered why I love Teal'c - he does come up with the best lines.
Return of the King come out tomorrow. Just as I wrote this the trailer for it came on the radio! I'm not going to see it until Boxing Day, which is probably just as well because I still can't decide whether I'm excited about it or not. I will be once I get in there, I'm just really worried about what they're going to do to Elrond.
Ewan McGregor seems to be doing a whole load of films lately - on Saturday I saw a trailer for one coming out in January. It didn't look that exciting though so maybe I'll wait and see what the reviews say about it first. I still haven't seen the last two he did.

New computer and ADSL

You are a Maia of Ulmo, Lord of Waters
Whose Maia are you?

A couple of recs:
History Lessons: The Second Age - it's only just started by, judging by the quality of History Lessons, it's got to be good.
Further to Fly - I'm on a bit of a West Wing kick at the moment and this one is long and good with lots of people having crises.
This weekend I spend just over �2000 on a new computer and various accessories. The computer itself is arriving on Friday, although sadly it's being delivered to my parents house. Which means I won't get to see it until Christmas and won't get to use it much until the end of January. On the plus side I am getting broadband! It only works out as a few quid more a month than I'm paying now and freeserve is really quite amazingly crap. I had 303 ZoneAlarm alerts in half an hour last night and I wasn't even doing anything!
