Are the days of running about to unused Macs and using browsrcamp.com over? Apple yesterday released their browser Safari for the Windows platform and on first look it looks good! Obviously it will never surpass Firefox (mainly for the web developer toolbar) for everyday use, but I do love the interface. Smooth text, pretty forms and buttons as well as a host of other excellent features. It also means that hopefully testing how sites render on a Mac will be made much easier.
In other news I contacted the CCCS (www.cccs.co.uk) for a debt management plan and hopefully with their help I can freeze interest on my HSBC loan and get it paid off sooner whilst at the same time not have to deal with the horror company DLC (they really are a bunch of [insert expletive here]). So once I get that sorted out I should be much better off and debt free a lot sooner!
Well I think I can honestly say I have never been as uncomfortable as this because of heat. The office is officially the hottest place I”ve ever known. But it”s made worse by the fact I have work to do and can’t just drink cold drinks and sit in the shade smoking.
I was extremely annoyed yesterday due to the collections company explaining that when they said my payments would be up for review, they actually meant “Pay us it all now.” Needless to say I had a barney and the monthly payments continue, but they have risen to Â£340 a month, which is way too much for me to enjoy myself. It”s more than my rent for God”s sake!!! I will have to see if I can afford it, if not, some form of goodwill payment each month will have to keep them happy, since it”s not really worth me going bankrupt (especially since they wouldn”t get paid off that way anyway!
And finally, on a lighter note, the picture you can see below is my good friend Mr Neil Collins on Countdown. I know!!! He has hair!! Amazing isn”t it!!
Well, back to work me thinks!
