In a bid to lose weight and get a bit fitter we used some gift tokens we got from work for Christmas and bought an exercise bike.
This is what it looked like at first:
After a bit of thinking it started to look like this:
And then finally as this:
And after testing it for 1/10th of a km I am now officially ready for a nap!
Mr Right Bleeding Bastard has updated his blog with his latest shit, and I am being literal here now….enjoy!
This picture was taken in 1956, it is a 5Mb hard drive.
In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first ‘SUPER’ computer with a hard disk drive (HDD).
The HDD weighed over a ton and stored a ‘whopping’ 5MB of data.
Our daughter Warda made a video as a school project, it’s pretty weird but you can see it below. It’s in Dutch so you might even understand it less than I do.

@Raymondstar is someone I met on Twitter. He is as mad as pants. He gets into all kinds of trouble such as being locked in cellars, locked in the toilets of McDonalds (not sure I want to know more about that one), falling into famous canals and getting lost in different countries. Late last year he won a bus trip to Germany and ended up somehow in Russia where he had to work as a barman/cocktail waiter to earn enough money to get home again.

I just realised that Matt Lucas (of Little Britain and Come Fly With Me fame) has blocked me on Twitter. (His Twitter name is @realmattlucas).
I am a bit narked about this as I did not harass him or anything and occasionally posted a nice reply to some of his posts. Back at the start of Come Fly With Me I did send him a tweet to say I didn’t think much of the new series, it was not really as funny as I expected, but this was likely lost in the many other tweets he no doubt gets all the time.
After watching Come Fly With Me episode 3 however I had seen the show really improve and get into its groove, it had gotten a bit more sarcastic and funny in my opinion, so I tweeted Matt Lucas a short message to say this to him.
I didn’t think anything more about it, then this week went to watch the latest episode and realised I had not seen any tweets appear from him on my timeline, so I checked my following list and saw he was not on it. Hmmm, strange I thought, but shit happens, maybe Twitter or myself had messed up, so searched for his name and clicked the FOLLOW button, only to see a message that he had blocked me.
Well, what a tosser, my opinion of him has certainly changed. If it is an honest mistake or even Twitter error then fair enough, so if Matt Lucas cares enough he can unblock me and let me know, otherwise as far as I am concerned he and his TV series can rot in hell, until he tells me otherwise I shall simply consider him a complete twat.
Not very interesting is it, even with a funky effect added to the picture to try and make it more exciting.
