Installing AutoCAD R12 and the AME onto a 730TE tablet.

The install went fine (it fast!) but I've lost my AME key! It's not in the box. It's not even in the R12 box! What the hell??
That's a key generated from the product serial number, so even in the unlikely event I were to try and google that, any other keys that someone might of posted elsewhere will not work. Panic! PANIC!

I'm trying to get that company to commission five more videos. It's still one of their most popular pieces. I now even have the glasses and awful 80's Trinicon camera to go with the shtick.

Spent most of the morning trying to understand more about passing data and objects between Activities in Android Java. Which took me past Java's serializer, Android's packager and greenrobot's EventBus. During and after I watched 'En Un Momento Dado" - a lovely documentary about Johan Cruyff - to cheer me up.



Best I get back to Android Studio now. Yay :(

Well, I've just spent a pointless 3 hours taking my family for a meal at a local pub after work. The great thing about this pub, is, the garden is enclosed so you do feel a bit safer with the kids. BUT...
Not only did it start taking a rather annoying time, when it arrived my steak was absolutely without a doubt the worse steak I have ever had.. In my life.. In fact the waitress asked if I was joking when I said.. "This is without doubt the worst steak I have ever had.. IN MY LIFE.. I've had this small cut in my mouth for 20 seconds chewing away and it's come out exactly the same as when it when it.. It's tougher than John Wayne!"

I'm not even sure now it was Steak...

Mouching through the shed with my kids.. have found so far a set of Walki-Talkies (but no charger yet), binoculars, a PSION Series 3a that we put batteries in and it worked fine and an SGI 540 that I though was in the loft. Also found the remote control to my fathers Sound bar.. he lives 5 miles away.. WHY is it in my shed???

Bit of porn.. bit of horror channel.. bit of moving 20 PC's to the new domain at work... APART FROM ONE!! ONE CLUSTER FSCK !! One cluster fsck who after multiple emails attaining to the said domain transfer to NOT turn their computer off on Friday the 13ths May.. TURNED HIS OFF!!! It would be nice that I had set up each PC to wake on lan.. but I never, and I have to go in tomorrow! MY fault for not thinking about people not doing as they are told.

Well, for this, he will at least suffer from remote shut downs at the worst time and I might even delete the occasional important file! (of cause I'd copy it to some location first and claim I saved his life... ) this from a guy that gave me 6.5 out of ten for a perfect cuppa just because the cup wasn't to the brim!.. GRRRRRR!!!

Porn is good though!
