PC Speed Boost with SSD (Solid State Drive) Upgrade

It was time to reinstall Windows on my 5 year old Acer Aspire 6930 and I found that I couldn’t. I suspected bad sectors on my HDD (Hard Disk Drive).

I installed Ubuntu 14.04 operating system (a distribution of Linux) as an interim measure as an alternative to Windows.

Although Ubuntu installed on my faulty drive, I could not install my important graphics and music software such as Cubase, Band in a Box and Corel Draw.

SSDs, just like stick USB drives don’t have any moving parts which make them faster and more reliable. I installed a Samsung SSD 840 EVO. I recommend the upgrade.

Selling my Rings…

Hey everybody, a few years ago I had planned to drive around the country playing gigs and doing market stalls. For the market stalls I bought a lot of costume jewelry rings because they were easily transportable and they don’t degrade. Anyway, long story for another day but I never did that trip and I still have all the rings.

They are all for sale as a job lot. Here is a quick video to show you what I have. In the near future I will do a stocktake to figure out how many of each type that I have.
All enquiries welcome.

‘Lust for Gold’ – [Live Original Song]

Filmed at Wallaby Creek Festival, 2008.

Holding up a broken man is more than we should do
My prosperity, angers me, I am forced to share with you
This parasite on society
Just cannot be told

You would not work for forty hours if I handed it to you
You must agree, concur with me, you’re not much of a man

The paradox that is fed to all
On which I fail to be sold:
That there is a place for dignity without a lust for gold

It was said that those are helped who damned well help themselves
Well paltry means and crazy dreams are damning you to hell

This parable of my society
Is one that must be told:

While he wastes his time with his artistry
I fuel my lust for…
Fuel my lust for gold

…it’s one that must be told:

While he wastes his time with his artistry
I fuel my lust for
Fuel my lust…

Gold !

‘Karma Sky’ – [Live Original Song]

A home demo recorded in 2008:

Should I wait for a calmer sky to love?
Can we wait for a calmer sky to love?
Should I wait for my Soul Mate or give more Free Love a taste?
Can I wait?

Can I take what I think I need to live?
Can we take what we think we need for life?
Can we give what we know we need with a target to succeed?
Can we give?

We have all the answers that we need
We can feed all the mouths we need to feed
We must break our hurtful rush of greed

Can you see the point of war? Can we see?
Will you kill another child with your vote?
Can you see the point of war or can we see at all?
Will we fight?

Can we wait for the world to die? Can we wait?
Can you give a change a try? Can we change?
Can we wait for the world to fry as we turn our slow blind eyes?
Can we wait?
