Learn to play the piano
Untitled

I’m not sure why but I would to be able to play the piano. It’s not like I listen to classical music (I adore synthpop and industrail). Maybe it’s just the idea of being able to sit at a random piano and playing something beautiful.



travel
Untitled

Short breaks in Europe and some time in Japan would be nice.



buy a porsche
Untitled

A cayman s to be exactly. I may look at a boxster depending on where I’m living at the time. If I had the money I still wouldn’t buy a 911, the cayman s is better in my view. The cayenne isn’t a porsche and only clueless dicks drive them.



move house
Untitled

I live in a flat, not keen. I want a house, preferably a small converted church.



Go on a date
Untitled

Been single for 10 years and only had 1 date in that time about 5 years ago. I didn’t even know it was a date at the time until she told me. Never really asked a girl out, scares me. I think I’m going to be single forever. I’d like to go on at least one date this year.

I’ve decided my aim to read a book a month is folly. It’s possible but I have other things that demand my time, so new aim is 6 books a year. Which is 6 more than most years.

Ok, reading The Bourne Supremacy, I have exactly 30 chapters left, so at least 1 chapter each day and I should be on target.

Installed vmware tools. VMware’s instruction were wrong. Following http://hacktolive.org/wiki/Install_VMware_Tools_on_ubuntu worked instead. Time to make a copy of the vmware files and do #2 on my list.

Beeping killed via yahoo and experimentation. Tried several methods, only one that worked was to edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and add “blacklist pcspkr” to it. Had to use “sudo gedit blacklist.conf” to edit it.

Installed it (via vmware). Quite painless, not as quick as expected and who thought making it beep when you shut it down would be a good idea? Need to kill the beeping and install vmware tools…



watch less tv (read all 5 entries…)
Untitled

Barely managing this. Doesn’t help when there’s 8 hours of live motor racing on! I have been trying to look at the listing to see if there’s anything worth watching before turning the tv on. Failed the other day miserably when I automatically turned it on and spent 15 minutes watching a program on growing giant vegtables! Why oh why. TV is mostly evil.

I haven’t really read much in recent years. I have a small collection of popular science books to read and the only book I’ve read this year is The Bourne Identity. I’ve just started The Bourne Supremacy having taken it out the library 3 months ago! My aim is to read a book a month.
