So today has actually been a pretty busy day for me at home. This morning I started work on getting the new version of my website
fully up and running now my new hosting account has been fully configured, only to find the auto-install feature for phpBB3 didn't let me customise it the way I wanted. So, I left it and after lunch went to set-up my dad's new wireless printer which was way easier then I expected. Apart from inserting the ink cartridges, everything was just a case of pressing the next button and occasionally selecting an option. As it's an all-in-one it did a self-assessment on the alignment page it printed and the PC software automatically configured it in windows as a wireless printer so I didn't even need to plug it in to a computer!
After that, I cleared out a load of my old games from the shelf above the family computer (which isn't actually used at all any more as I have my own desktop and everyone else has their own laptops). When I say old games, I mean so old they have those massive cardboard boxes that games form the '90s came in before the switch to the plastic cases you get them in now, so old that the recommended processing power is measured in MHz, and my copy of the B-Wing expansion for Star Wars X-wing is even on a floppy disk! It does seem a bit of a shame getting rid of some of them as I have fond memories of playing a lot of them (some though I couldn't get working, or just never got around to playing), but its unlikely I'm going to play most of them so I've kept a few and the rest (15 I believe the last count was at) will be given to a charity shop at some point.
For the next few hours I did a load more website work changing various pathnames within the PHP files to match up to my web hosting account rather then the XAMPP environment I've been testing in, as well as uninstalling the phpBB3 forum I installed in the morning and doing a custom install instead, which has allowed em not only to have the latest version but also customise it with a new style and make a couple of modifications.
Then it was more Fable II, not only getting the 100G achievement for having a 2.5 million gold real estate worth but also getting a load of silver keys I'm missing before I start Fable III which I'm hoping to arrive in the post some time this week. And finally just now I watched a program on BBC iPlayer all about stargazing which talked a lot about the moon, which was very interesting to watch.
So, lets hope tomorrow is a bit more relaxed, with probably only a few more tweaks to my website and lots more Fable II (and hopefully the start to Fable III).
