Never mind the Sex Pistols, here's the..... 02/10/2004

Last Christmas This is gonna be a long story, so go make yourself a cuppa, and settle down while i tell you about it. I'm gonna tell it as it happened, 'cos that seems to me the only way to tell it. I wouldn't have believed it if someone else had told me, so please try to keep an open mind. It's not a love story, but another scene in life's rich tapestry. In mid-December last year i had a day to myself - i try to live my life in such a way that i get days to myself, i wouldn't want any of that 9-5 office stuff -and on this particular day i was surfing idly on the net, sort of work-oriented (i have to do a fair bit of research in my line of work, and my studies as well (i do both) ), but happy to go off on a tangent if the chance presented it. About 11a.m. that morning i had clicked on a page, and as i clicked out of the page a pop-up appeared, which i got rid of immediately as usual, only to get a kind of after-image of what it said..."Free inkblot test". I thought to myself "i'd like to take a free inblot test, i've never done one of them before", but it was too late, so i forgot all about it. That afternoon, about 3.00p.m., i had had lunch etc., and had returned to my PC and was idly surfing again when the same pop-up appeared again. Free inkblot test. This time i managed to stop myself before getting rid of it, and studied the page. I wanted to make sure there was nothing i ought to know before entering the site e.g. a likely virus site, or do they really want money for it after all ...

Lexmark Z 25 Color Jetprinter 02/10/2004

ideal for moderate use

Lexmark Z 25 Color Jetprinter I'm sure everybody who hasn't got a printer with their PC must think to themselves occasionally "i could really do with a printer!" I know i did, but this didn't happen more than once per month or so, so i was reluctant to spend too much on something i wouldn't be using too often. The Lexmark Z25 was just about the cheapest i could find during my search of 3 different PC shops. I have found it to be EXTREMELY easy to use - and i am not one of these PC buffs - and have even, on one occasion, had cause to ring the Lexmark help-number (for something which turned out to be my own foolish mistake) and found them to be very helpful. I don't do anything to maintain it at all; it's sitting on the edge of my desk covered in dust, but works every time i click "print", and installing it can be done by anybody who knows how to open the CD drawer on their PC, as you are stepped gently through the process. There is also a Lexmark website to help if anything should not work properly, which is set up a bit like Windows Troubleshooter. I was really pleasantly surprised when i set it up, put the CD in, and was asked to print a test page - out came a beautiful colour picture of a peacock, of much better quality than i expected to see, but this leads me on to the draw-back. Each time you print anything, a small window opens up to indicate how much ink is left in the cartridges, but when you are getting low on ink and buy a new cartridge you find that the cartridges cost almost as much as the ...
