Water flowing underground
same as it ever was
The TV arrived

this morning, just as MWNN sat down to breakfast before we headed for the airport. So much for Parcelforce's 24 hour delivery service - it took 3 working days to get here and has cost the supplier a piss poor rating for delivery on the feedback form.

Ye gads but it's big ... and flat ..... and shiny - and the handbook weighs almost as much as the TV itself. It's taken me 4 or so hours to plough through to get it all set up and connected and it seems to be running OK, although the colour keeps doing the visual equivalent of the doplar effect , and the sound is in mono, when it's tuned to the cable box . The hi fi speakers work really well now that I've re-wired them and the old PC is connected and the photo display is magnificent. I suspect it's going to need tweaking to get all the settings optimised.


In other news, The Shadows and Dust Awards judges gave me this pretty yesterday, 


congratulations too, to

Nominations are now open for round 15 - go forth (or possibly fifth) and nominate.

Delighted to see your award:)

And good thing the tele arrived.

It's the first 'judged' award I've ever won and I'm still reeling from the surprise.

TV may have arrived, but it's now giving me a headache trying to get it to behave properly.

first 'judged' award? Ah, so extra special as it is the 'first':)

good luck with tele, other than 'puter am a technical ignoramus...

Congratulations love!

Thanks Sue.

Your entries aren't showing on my Flist- either that, or you haven't posted for a while.

I haven't posted for a couple of days, so I don't know if you mean that.

Many congrats on the award, and also on the TV finally arriving! I hope the glitches sort themselves out soon.

Thank you!

Glitches continue but they are as nothing compared to what MWNN is coping with in Ireland.

Dancing with you.

That's a lovely new default icon. Look, I have one too, courtesy of bendy1

Stuff went out in the post to you today.

Thank you for both the compliment on the icon--I finally got the effect to work the way I wanted it to--and for whatever is in the post. Can't wait!

I love your icon. Exactly what Spike would say.
