More Blogger DNS Settings

Was having trouble with a few domains, it seems the 'A' record needs to be set as well. So the full DNS settings should be:-

asossale.co.uk A 216.239.32.21
asossale.co.uk A 216.239.34.21
asossale.co.uk A 216.239.36.21
asossale.co.uk A 216.239.38.21
www CNAME ghs.google.com.

Note the trailing dot on the CNAME record.

I think I'll see if that domain is fixed tomorrow as the DNS records take a while to propagate.

Legoland Windsor Tip

Went to Lego-land Windsor on a short break this weekend. Not much to do for my 13 year old son but my daughter who's 6 really enjoyed.

Stayed at the Hilton in Bracknell which was functional although a little high end food wise for the kids.

When we walked in and one of first rides is the rapids and my wife wanted to queue straight off I was convined it would be quieter later as people ventured deeper into the park. The wait time at 11am was 45 minutes.

I won the argument at 3pm the wait time was just 15 minutes!

Whats the Differance between a Laptop and a Notebook

Got asked this the other day and it's interesting. Short answer not a lot, practially a notebook is normally smaller and portable.

Normally a notebook is under 15" screen and a laptop is anything bigger but integral monitor and keyboard. So a notebook is a small laptop and a laptop is a computer that's not a desktop.

Does that make sense?

Avioding Speeding Fines

For a number of years I worked in Cardiff and travelling from Swansea every day resulted in me having a lot of Speeding Tickets.

In two years I had the dreaded notice of intended prosecution around 12 times. Yet I never got one point and managed to avoid them all.

As a result this has inspired me to start up Speeding Points, I plan to update fairly regular so if you get a speeding fine it might be worth checking out.

Kick Ass Mini Movie Review

Wow I can't quite put my finger on it but it should be bloody awful, it's cheesy popcorn type movie but somehow it's is A1.

The casting and dialogue just seems to fit and even though it's so obvious what is going to happen and you shouldn't give a dam what happens to the characters, I seemed to care!

Best film I've seen in the last year easy.
