Lots of things happening around here

A very long time since my last update, and there are reasons for this. The main reason was that today was meant to be the launch of my next version of my website. But due to time constraints and also pressure of my uni project, I am disappointed to tell you that this will not be ready until mid 2007. But in the mean time I have given a preview to the site, which can be found using the link above.

Also, another thing that has happen is that I have switch web host, and also the shout box has been totally redesign. What does this all mean? Well for one, my site will be more reliable and you should now be able to access it without any difficulties. Second, the URL, www.richardtan.co.uk is much easier to remember. And the third reason is that it will be much faster to load the page due to the redesign to my shout box. So yeah, that’s about it on my website. But yeah, if you do have time, please check out version 3 and drop me a note on what you think of it, since soon it will also be your web blog.

Oh yeah, I have an ipod!! WOOHOO.. at last I can ditch my stupid 3 year old 256mb mp3 player, with a diabolical battery life and also sometimes go out of tune. In replace of this, I have the new second generation ipod nano 8 gig. It is amazing. I mean the sound quality is amazing... I just can’t believe how good it is. But I have some complaints. One is the headphones. There is this little moveable plastic that separate the headphones ear pieces right, and when I first saw it, I thought great, you will be able to wear the earphones around your neck, something like it allows to where like a necklace. Well I tried to wear it like a necklace, but the stupid wire is too short, and usually you would be able to extend the amount of wire you can use, but there is another plastic that gets in the way of this. Any one with an ipod will probably get what I mean... But if they design the earphones to not be wore like a necklace, what the hell is that little plastic thing for? If any body knows, tell me... since I want to know.

Now second thing that is wrong with the ipod is the SLOW response rate when you are in the middle of a song, and you want to change tracks. It is so slow, I mean it takes like 2 seconds for it to change. I don’t know if it is just my ipod or not, but I don’t think it is. I think it is the ipod cache... don’t know. But apart from these little things, the ipod is amazing...

Erm, what else should I talk about, erm... don’t know... I have some more stuff to do with version 3 to make it previewable... So I work on that... but again, do check it out. Anyway, I say goodbye to ya guys!!!
