I haven't done a thing on Momentum Oscillators but as the exam is still two weeks away I may start either tomorrow or next week (after the date the Assignment results are released).

I've spent time setting up the HP Windows Media Centre machine running Vista Home Premium. This has an inbuilt digital TV receiver and all the gadgets to run it - such as a Windows remote control. Although the Operating System comes as an image on a hard drive it isn't installed and a user has to agree to all the terms etc. make their own backup of the operating system image on DVD) - tune the tuner (which has two possible states analog or digital) - etc. etc.. I'm quite pleased with it. It will become a multimedia machine only. It's easier to set up recordings than most digital DVD recorders and then burn the saved recordings to DVD (if that's something a user wishes to do).

It took quite a while to fine tune it and I discovered that Nero 6 is incompatible with Vista so had to upgrade to Version 7 of Nero which is "Vista Certified". Vista didn't like Nero 6 at all and instead of installing it it simply said "incompatible version" and deleted the installation (or at least there's no sign of a Nero 6 installation to delete). As I have a Version 6 Nero serial number the update to 7 was "cheap" (although nothing is "cheap" on zero income).

I spent some two hours on Skype with Trevor at the weekend and thank Trevor for the birthday card received today.

There's a state election being held this Saturday. Sunday is my birthday. Monday is the date FINSIA release my assignment results (hum...)

There was another suggestion of a contract yesterday. I told them they've already seen my resume via another agency but they are submitting it anyway.
