The short explanation of my perfect partner is "geek girl" although I did have some additional ideas about length of hair (short), height (ditto), and size of chest (large). Physical appearance wasn't really the point though. A
In the end I concluded that such a girl did not exist for me, but Jules (bless her) told me that she was almostly certainly sat in some other bar in London saying much the same thing about me. I'm not sure how realistic thinking that sort of thing is - and I think it was based on the 4 cocktails we'd consumed at that point rather than any part of reality - but it did make me feel better. Maybe one day I will find my perfect partner.
Anyway all these ramblings are contected to the article I found on the BBC site this afternoon about Georgy Russell - candidate for California state governor. More importantly though she's a self confessed geek, SB fan, and pretty damn foxy as far as I can tell from the picture. There's hope for me yet (although California might be a little too far to go).
Anyway I always like to buy my music although I find listening on-line a great way of finding new music and bands I wouldn't normally get to hear of - recently though I've had a few problems with copy protected CDs. They don't seem to play on any of the hardware I have. Major offender is the new Kosheen album which refuses to play on anything and essentially has been a waste of £9.99. More annoying is that the new Dido album I have been looking forward to also seems to be copy protected but at least fore-warned this time I won't waste my money.
So that explains why although I'd normally pay for my music I was trolling around trying to find downloads and stumbled across Pragard. For the record though they didn't actually have any of Kosheen or Dido songs I was looking for meaning that I'm still stuck with a CD whose contents are a mystery to me and a much awaited release that I won't be able to listen to.
Does anyone know where/if I can pay to download these albums or if they are available somewhere without the copy protection? Also isn't there some sort of legal issue when I'm being sold CDs which just won't play in any of my music equipment?
Anyway seemingly one of the hardest things in Access is finding a list of all the system functions that are available - for reasons that escape me it's nigh on impossible to find them in MS Access' help even if it does have a cute little puppy trying to help me (I killed clippy). So although it's very simple this list of MS Access functions I found on-line was a real life saver. Sometimes simple is best.
