Re: I GOT IN!!!

Don't worry. They're more for when I want to wander and my hall of residence and I can't be bothered to find real clothes to wear.

(It's mixed-gender halls, wondering around naked might not be the best idea. Unless... :roll: )

Re: I GOT IN!!!

UPDATE: Everything I own seems to be in boxes. Either that or it has been earmarked for boxes. There are a few notable exceptions: My electronic instruments (will be brought down at a later date) My furniture (i.e. bed, desk and wardrobe) A lot of the books I've already read. My drum kit (there will...

Re: Dead Macbook I want to get rid of - anybody interested?

Thank you very much. I have been thinking of getting a small external drive for a while so this is pretty good. I have ordered the casing you suggested as a result. And as a matter of your personal security, wipe that drive... in fact, do it about seven times. I think the plan now is to use that as...

Dead Macbook I want to get rid of - anybody interested?

If this doesn't bear fruit I will turn to eBay, but I thought I'd try here first (if that's ok). I've got a Macbook that has died - it's either a teeny, tiny power-connector that has gone, or it's the motherboard (according to a genius). Otherwise it's in tip-top condition. The casing isn't cosmetic...

Re: Voice recording

I would personally not suggest Audacity to a Mac user. It is written for PC and Linux and when you open it, you can tell. WavePad however, is very similiar in form and function but much cleaner (and written in Cocoa). Garageband too, for this purpose would be unsuitable. You don't want to create a n...

Re: I GOT IN!!!

Update: I signed the tenancy agreement today. It's all becoming uber real. I also have accosted a set of coathangers. I should also point out that I won't have internet access in my hall of residence (one of the joys of going to a small specialist performing arts place rather than a Uni; its WAY sma...

Re: I GOT IN!!!

I got the D in Religious Studies - a topic I am passionate about, but unfortunately none of that passion was exploited by the exam board.

I will make sure my lobster has adequate water and food.

I GOT IN!!!

I got my A-level results on Thursday and these are they: AAAD. I needed BDDD. This means that in 5 weeks I am moving to Devon. Throw in a 2.5 week trip to Ireland, plus 3 days worth of travelling time, I only actually have 2 weeks to tie up loose ends. This is a very scary thought. I have already st...

Re: Inexpensive holiday places

Camping is a good way to go on holiday on the cheap.

The other thing i would highly recomend is volenteering. I have no money this year, so I signed up to work for Oxfam at festivals for 2 weeks (hence why I've not been around) and I had the best time doing it.

Re: My Macbook has died

I have tried booting it with and without Batteries and Mains power in every combination I can - including neither (which is meant to reset the power manager). And neither work. I'm not under Apple care any more, my warranty is a year long warranty and I got it in April 2007, so I have a bad feeling ...

My Macbook has died

It's sitting in it's bag waiting to go off to the Apple shop. Sigh. When I press the on button: nothing happens. Literally, nothing at all. I have tried resetting the Power Manager. I have tried cleaning the the bit that connects the battery to the rest of it. Nothing. Nothing at all. If anyone know...
