Really good way to find big files that you should be rid of, Mac OS doesn’t make it easy to discover Folder sizes, plus you can make it all different sorts of colours… :)
So I watched the NFL’s Wembley game on Sunday. I was taught the rules one day and found it more than watchable, it could’ve been because I was watching on the BBC, the highlights show and therefore there were no ad-breaks and no timeouts. Why they had a Children’s BBC presenter hosting the show I’m not entirely sure, maybe some day he’ll be a real sports presenter and won’t be called ‘barney’ or ‘oliver’ or some such cbbc name.
Don’t reckon it’ll catch on, but one game a year ain’t bad. Apparently the SuperBowl is being shown live in the Spring.
I quote my sister:
The Nintendo Wii is for Girls
I however have no comment, but I want a 360.

Have put a business card up at box42av.com for Barney; that’s his name of choice for the AV shows that go on every now and then. A proper promotional site will follow in due course.
This lovely plasma and its twin is going to be going with us to the Culloden for the UTV BusinessEye awards, am running the show with 2 cameras, vision mix, graphics input from a graphics person, two projectors, four plasmas, and the house wall plasmas.
Long day ahead tomorrow, and I now have a BT Openzone code :-)
Found this a day or two ago: written back in September 2006… May as well post it!!
September 30 2006, by David Lowry
Route 66 trip is over, I’m back home and JK is in Boston; who KNOWS what he could possibly be doing in Boston.
As a follow up to Jonny’s above: yes, New Mexico sucks, the County Line BBQ place was excellent and Katie the waitress was indeed quite baffled at our disbelief of the size of the chocolate cake!
Arizona is a pretty nice place – Grand Canyon, plus the petrified and painted stuff. Didn’t get to Hoover dam cos someone was inconsiderate and crashed their car so it was closed for two days. The place we stayed in and posted that email from was nice – friendly folk. It’s called the Travel Inn and is in Flagstaff, AZ.
Vegas is a dirty (though very clean) hole, 200 miles from anywhere; expensive and tacky. Caesers Palace really is opulent and huge. We got lost in it trying to find the FAO Schwartz (who can guess what challenge that one was for) and nearly got thrown out of that area because we were wearing ‘shorts and tennis shoes’ and approaching the scary loud R&B club.
Driving through the desert wasn’t so bad. Not least because driving around vegas took at least two hours more than planned (strip is huge and the whole North/South thing on a circular road is just stupid – plus lack of road signs (“here’s a hint, you guess the rest”) which Jonny will I’m sure post/rant about at some point. (which meant it was night time..)
Los Angeles is a scary place – they have a CSI Series dedicated to it remember; but Santa Monica is lovely, a couple of hundred folk move there every week which explains all the homeless people which is sad to see and a lot more visible than at home. But we DID find the end of route 66 point after three days of not looking in the right place! Swimming at Malibu beach was class, Jonny was scared of sharks or jellyfish or something and didn’t really get in. Wuss.
Oh yeah – now that we’re home I at least can reveal what the rental car was: Mazda 6 V6 3.0 24c with Semi-automatic gearbox. WOW! We asked for (and paid for) an A-Class (lowest) type and this was a C-4 Class; which I think is the highest below Premium brands and things like Roadsters. Beats any of the 1.0/1.2 litres that I’ve driven before!! Nice of Jonny to tell me yesterday how he had never driven on a Motorway before the I-60 south of Illinois!! (yesterday: as we drive along a 6 lane highway through Los Angeles)
