    to fly and everything just works Here are the only issues I experienced and they were easily resolved Continue reading Posted by Calvin at 14 54 Pixmania slash prices on Dell Netbook and 2TB Iomega Hard Drive Uncategorized 2 Responses Sep 18 2009 I don t often post product offers here but I got a newsletter full of special offers from Pixmania this morning and a couple of them were too good not to share Portable computing for less First they ve cut the price of the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook with 1GB RAM and a 160GB hard disk by 20 to just 239 including VAT Sounds like a bargain to me It s the perfect Back to College netbook for students who wants to travel light packing a lot of punch in a neat elegant package There s everything a student office worker or writer come to that could needs for productive working on the go WiFi communications and more as standard Backup and Storage aplenty The other offer that really caught my eye was this 2 TB Iomega external hard drive that s a lot of photos audio and video not to mention space to backup your valuable data all for the remarkable 30 reduced price of 139 You ll find other great offers on the Pixmania Home Page These two stood out for me which is why I thought I d share them here but you ll have to be quick the sale ends in 5 days Posted by Calvin at 11 21 Irish Blog Awards I made the longlist Blog Events My Sites News Uncategorized No Responses Feb 10 2009 Yay This blog and the SOHO Solo West Cork blog that I look after have both made it to the Irish Blog Awards longlist I m delighted although a little curious that I m in the journalist category I ve been accused of journalism very occasionally but have never really considered myself a journalist as such I write about stuff that interests me and I m very lucky that sometimes people pay me but you won t find me actively hunting down the latest scoop or unearthing some nefarious government scheme This post is very much a case of Better Late than never I meant to post about it last week when the longlists were announced but decided to migrate to a new operating system I ditched Microsoft Windows Vista in favour of the Kubuntu variant of the Ubuntu Linux Distribution but more on that in another post which took more time than anticipated So I m rushing this out just before the shortlists are announced Whatever happens I m over the moon to have made the longlist twice Posted by Calvin at 14 30 Tagged with awards blog awards Longlist SOHO Solo Too much internet is bad for your health Computing Internet Rant social media Technology Uncategorized Web 2 Responses Jan 10 2009 Image by husin sani via Flickr Always on internet should come with a Government Health Warning No seriously it should I m sitting here at daft o clock in the morning writing this blog post wondering where the time went to My wife is away for a couple of nights the kids went to bed almost eight hours ago and are sound asleep and I should be too but I m not Why Because we have always on internet that s why I m not going to call it broadband because to do so would give it delusions of grandeur but it is demonstrably always on And that means I m always on On the laptop on the netbook on the WiFi enabled mobile must sleep Kids will wake up early regardless and I won t be able to cope if I don t get four or five hours in Will finish up tomorrow Right morning all Woken up at 7 30 by the little one Don t even want to reflect on how little sleep I ve actually had Looks like I m running on caffeine today folks Now where was I oh yes always on internet It s like heroin only worse because while getting your fix online might make you look a bit geeky it doesn t have the same stigma attached to it as hard narcotics At least not yet But it is addictive and if it s suddenly taken away you do go into a kind of withdrawal But wait you cry while it might be an insidious habit unlike a drug addiction it won t lead you down a spiral of deceit and criminal activity to get your next virtual hit will it I m not so sure Hands up how many people out there have casually hooked up to a conveniently unsecured wireless network just to check e mail or a profile page or twitter or whatever It s a slippery slope So I m thinking of starting a new group perhaps on facebook lol welcome to Internet Addicts Anonymous IAA To kick things off I ll go first My name is Calvin Jones and I m a always on internet oholic Admitting it is the hardest part go on try it for yourself in the comments below it s cathartic I feel better already Posted by Calvin at 3 21 Tagged
