I've not had chance to get on here properly in a while. How is everyone?

I'm not bad, been busy sorting out a couple of websites, writing my book, transferring all my DVDs onto a hard drive so I can access them all through the menu system on my ps3. Once they're all done I may set up a server for it.

Trimmed the plants in my tank for the first time today too, jeeez they were getting long.

What has everyone else been up to?

Set up my new 60ltr tank, finishing some course work but my week has been pretty much bleak.

Just finishing my first year at college and loving the British summer. Keeping tuned into the world cup, despite England still firing blanks. Hopefully that will change come Wednesday :good:

Settled down in my part time job, looking to get extra hours during the summer hols B-)

Learning to drive, avout 6 lessons in now. Finding it good, hard work mastering the clutch but i'm on my way to it! :lol:
Back into rugby training in preperation for the start of the new season in september, also re-joined my gym last night on a 6 month deal.

Spare time, im out with the lads. Few trips to the cities and beaches, also playing on the PS3. MW2 mostly, ordered GH5 as I loved 3 and WT, also can't wait for the release of Gran Turismo 5 and GH6 in the autumn!

And finally keeping active on the forums :fish:

Ace. Good luck with the fry.

I can't believe how little free time ive had recently. On the upside I've made great progress on my research into broadacre city.

Hi,

Glad to have you back. Me? Lol, I've been using the phrases "when it rains, it pours" and "bring it on" a lot lately. Some great developments for me at the university where I work. It's going to cut into my TFF time.

Cheers.

Marathon training... Well, as far as weight loss (or just fat loss) my legs don't have any fat at all, but my belly is just as big as it was. I've taken to cycling every day, which if I'm honest is much more fun than the gym, and seems to be working a little better.

Been searching through my computers for things I like enough to go in my portfolio... But can't find much yet. So my site is still pretty empty cjblizzard.co.uk

the other site I've been working on is for neil Hutton, the drummer from benediction and stampin ground. Seriously ace drummer. And at least once it's launched I'll be able to add it to my portfolio.

If I'm honest, most of my time has been swallowed by my work with my broadacre city stuff. Unfortunately mr wright had some differing opinions to me, and even worse, he wrote them very intelligently, which makes it hard for me to formulate my own ideas.
So I've written about 15 pages on it so far, and I think it'll end up being about 80 before my designs, plus however many pages they take up. But I've set up a wiki on my mac, and made it available on my local network so I can "jot" notes and stuff.

And pretty excited, I'm ordering a new lens for my camera today, 4.5mm. Extreme wide angle fisheye lens.

Congrats on the fish, what did you get?

Hope you get well soon. Thankfully I've not had to deal with food poisoning before

Thanks ash. May well have been me.

I keep going through all the pics I've got and thinking they look like general snaps, not exactly great photos, so when I get my new lens I shall be setting myself some goals, hopefully I'll get a pic for each category of the digital photographer of the year competition, not that I could win it... Just gives me something to work on.

Also got 2 websites to add, just need to figure out the best way to present them. And when I finish my book it'll have it's own page there, plus need to get my blog sorted, and link to it... Lots to do.

Thinking about going to some motor racing events to try and get some good pics.

my dad often goes to british super bike and moto gp races in england and europe and gets some amazing pictures with a pretty crap camera just a normal digital one so you would get amazing ones! (guess its not a normal digital with talk of lenses)

look forward to seeing the updated site
