My mum and sister went into the city centre yesterday with plans to do some shopping and get their hair done. What they didn’t expect was to have to deal with a burglary!

Having parked in a multi-story car park, you’d think that the security would be enough to deter would-be thieves from committing a crime. But no…. not these thieves.

When my mum and sister arrived back to the car, they were welcomed by the sight of an empty space where the stereo used to be. The locking system on both the driver and passenger doors had been picked (don’t ask me how!) and the front loading cd player was gone.

When my sister went to the security hut to report the problem, two of the three culprits had been caught. The Guards (Police) were called but it turned out that the one that got away was the one that had the goods. Apparently, the theives were only kids… no more than about twelve years old.

The stereo was designed to allow the face to clip off, so you can bring it with you or hide it elsewhere in the car, but my sister forgot to take advantage of this feature. I hate to say I told you so, but I previously mentioned it to my sister on many occasions to clip the face off.

I feel bad for her, because I’m planning to get a new cd player myself :)

Another BAD Result!

Man Utd 0-0 Man City

I think Sir Alex’s statement summed up their display on Sunday quite well:
“We are not good enough to win the title on that display – we have dropped another two points”

Come on guys! Get your act together. You’re better than that!

What more can I say? If they can’t beat the likes of Man City, Portsmouth or Birmingham then they don’t deserve to win the title this season. It’s as simple as that.

Let’s see if they can manage a win against Newcastle in their next premiership game. A result like Fulham managed against Newcastle would be nice (Newcastle 1-4 Fulham) :)

Bed Time Web Design

When I go to bed, I go with the intention of actually going to sleep. My body usually agrees, but sometimes my brain doesn’t :(

Sometimes my mind ends up wandering…. thinking about the web design – of all things! I end up comtemplating what changes I could possibly make to my sites in order to improve them. As you can imagine, it can be infuriating at times.

I generally try not to give in by getting back up and jotting down the ideas, but sometimes they’re too good to pass up. I’ve also noticed that sometimes the best thing to do is to get back up for a few minutes.

Maybe I should cut down on the intake of caffeine before going to bed :D

Car Audio Players

The cd player in my car has packed it in. At least I think it has considering it down right refuses to play any cd’s :(

Although I don’t really blame it. It’s been playing cd’s all the time for the past 5 years or so. It first began to signal it’s intent to pack in it by skipping every time the car hit a bump in the road. Then it began skipping on every crack in the road. Then it kept spitting the cd’s out with the error “CD ERROR”.

Anyway, my birthday is coming up pretty soon and mother dearest has agreed to buy me a brand spanking new cd player :D So I’ve spent the last few days researching cd players on the net, but I’m still undecided. If anyone knows of a really good one, I’d appreciate an email or a link. Bare in mind the budget is set at €250.

It’s got to be able to play MP3 and WMA files. And a detachable face would be nice too :)
