This is my office right now.
Tomorrow morning I will be moving to a new room.
I asked for a bigger office when the new room became available but I did warn the boss that if he gave me a bigger office, I would make a bigger mess.
Goodbye my little office, we’ve been the coolest human/room partnership for 7 years. I will miss you. You are well known for containing the coolest gadgets in the building. I have often been warned by security to lock your door for fear of any of our goodies going missing. What a sad day this is.
Promise, I’ll pop in every so often to say hello and I’ll to try keep it the new one clean for as long as possible.
No bullshit – I ordered 4 x Maxtor 120Gb backup devices at, wait for it !!!!!!! â‚¬3.50!!!!!! each this morning from www.edirect.gr
Needless to say, they called me a couple of hours later saying they had made a mistake on their site and that the price was wrong. I insisted that they should fulfill the order as advertised. They insisted they were cancelling my order.
I then called EKPOIZO – the Greek Consumer Council – got some good advice, thanks. They suggested I write a letter. Well, in the modern spirit of blogging, no letter, just blog.
Now I’m no legal eagle but, a price advertised as far as I am concerned constitutes contract. However, in the spirit of good netizenship, I admit I thought that e-direct made a mistake when palcing the order but thought it wouldn’t hurt to place the order anyway. Because in commerce, both sides need to be honest for a transaction to be successful, and because e-direct took the trouble to admit to thier mistake, I’m happy to let this one go.
Pity, I could have used the disks Edirect

I’ve been using Maxthon as my primary browser for some months. It really is a power users browser.
Although not striclty a browser but rather a browser shell based on IE, its’ pretty damn powerful and makes IE a usable product. Given all the IE vulnerabilities out there I wouldn’t suggest using it without running regular windws update patching by default as well as Windows Antispyware and Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool.
Still it has tabbed browsing and what I think is the coolest feature, closing tabs with a double click. Other cool features include “Mouse Gestures” which allows you to navigate using the mouse and also “super drag & drop” that lets you open a link simply by dragging it upwards (almost like throwing a link to open a new tab)
Try close Maxthon down completely and you’re handed a window asking if you’d like to save the session of open tabs for next time – very cool indeed.

|Some things are best left alone. I’m sorry but a woman has no business around a mans five’oclock stubble. Chris trusts Ponzi enough to let her WAX!!! his face.
This is not the first personal blog I’ve started. It will, however, be the last. So thanks to Theo, I now have a subdomain to call home. I plan to talk about Technology mostly but will also cover things I’m less experienced in such as life, business and all sorts of other stuff.
So ‘Hello World’
