See the BMW c4 videos.
The OCZ thing is a memory module, it will be fitted inside the case and is fairly small. Why then does it come decorated with a camouflage pattern? Furthermore, it has "cooling" plates on the faces, with vent holes, OK I know that modern memory chips do get warm- especially if they are over-clocked- but take note of the sticker warning that the warranty may be void. that sticker is blocking the cooling holes.
The photo is of the faulty card that I am sending back for a replacement. Hopefuly they only have non-camouflage ones in stock.
Cinema: This is England– set in a typical working class English town in 1983. A story of unrelenting grimness, broken characters falling into destructive lifestyles set against a background of changing Thatcher’s Britain. It could have been made by Mike Leigh, but it wasn’t. It lacked Leigh’s sparkle- humour and irony. The filming, acting and production was flawless, but the story & character development was hopelessly grim.
Cycling is called off today due to heavy rain. That gave me a chance ot paint- but the results are probably not going to look radically different to the last photos shown here.
Linseed: Worked on two paintings this morning. Chages are probably harder to discren from photos but both now have their first linseed layers- so some richness of colour is starting to form.
Here’s a short sequence to show the progress of the horseStalking
My lower back still aches and next Friday we’re going to Cumbria again to take on the mountain again- this time we’re not only going to beat it, but drive to the next one for a part dress-rehearsal. Two climbs in one day, with a 5 hour drive between ( use that for recovery). This time, we know the route, I have some better gear- in a new rucksac that it partly packed right now.
That’ll be a tiring weekend then.
…there you are- a blog entry that should have been written over several nights.
