I am married to Spiderbaby and live in Banbury, Oxfordshire after eight years living in the USA and Sweden. I am working and training as a clinical scientist for the NHS in Oxford.

There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH
Source: New Scientist 27 July 2013.

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with Playstation-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

Oh no! I hope that doesn't happen to mine. It's getting kind of old.

Shaking worked for a few days, but no longer...

Question is - do I send it for a diagnostic for £40 or just buy a new one?

ES> Refurb website? Didn't know apple did that! I'll have a look, thanks : )

Oh. Crap.

From the thumbnail I thought it was some over-the-top DNA analysis software.

Is everything backed up? Can you try reintalling the OS? When my graphics card went kaput on my old laptop, reinstalling my OS gave it another 3 months.

The laptop itself is fine. Connects to my network without any problems and i have pulled all my work off it - it's just the display that doesn't seem to work. If I turn it off-and-on and shake it about a bit it's often ok for a while...

...Yeah, it's served me well for 4 years but it's time for core 2 duo lovelyness.

Ah, no worries. Four years of service, I don't feel short changed.
