I'd not heard of that before John, sounds pretty good unless your tent gets a puncture!!


Dear Blog,

I'm not sure who came up with it first but Vango seem to be the main one pushing it with their Airbeam system. So far it looks good as the tent is really very spacious, there's a decent amount of covered area outside the sleeping section and it's a good height as well. Packing it away is a pain but then it always is for tents.

No wedding myself obviously but a good friend's wedding in Manchester which seems to have gone from being ages away to next week as I realised today. Feeling a bit of panic but I don't really know why as there's not really much I need to do, accomodation is booked and I'm driving down so it's just a case of getting myself there with the kilt outfit ok.

Dear Blog,

Frick me. That's been an exciting past hour or so... Spill water on trackpad. Trackpad stops working. Then only makes mouse move up and down. See water under trackpad buttons. Trying blowing out water with short burst of airduster. Doesn't work. Then laptop just dies. Won't boot. Won't boot. Won't boot. Tries to boot. Whirr. Fail. Leave a couple of mins. Boots up. Same cursor problem - only vertically mid screen. Dig out old Wacom PenPartner 2 (I don't have a mouse). Plug in and kinda works but need to find proper driver. Download driver. Working but the pen grip must've deteriorated over the past years as it's a bit icky/dust covered. Give that a clean. Get more water on it than wanted to. Now pen doesn't work.

TLDR: More minutes past, pen works again and so does trackpad! Phew!

Oh and Tappy, ask Scar. I'm sure he's handed out a few salmon slaps in the past for lack of Dear Blog, even if you are quoting another dear blog! That is all from me tonight.

Dear blog,

geesus, your laptop is like a family of Starks! The GOT kind, not the Ironman kind..

The weather is very nice in london today. We're sat outside on our ikea rattan sofa. Even the brother in law who thought it was a stupid idea!

Still stag do training. 3 ciders last night. need to hit 4 or 5 tonight..

Dear Blog

This is just typical I had my savings sitting ready to buy a new surround sound system, the day I decide to spend the lot a PS4 because its all a little too expensive the speakers I want are reduced in price!

Dear Blog,

Friggin' 'ell. Wish my HDMI out worked so I could connect my laptop up to my tv/monitor and use it as an extra screen. Would (possibly) make essay writing easier with more docs and papers up at the same time and me not losing my place as I alt-tab all over the place!

My first world problems!! :D

Dear Blog,

Inflatable beam tents were invented by Professor X in X-Men 2, they all stayed in them when Magneto rescued the Blackbird, so Prof X must have stuck them on the plane for situations like that.

Dear Blog,

I can't believe you think we're crazy for a serious technical discussion on the possibility of mixing cybernetically revived genetically augmented super humans with game of thrones. Just catching up on said game of thrones and a bit confused by the actor for the mountain being changed again.
