10.8.5

After updating my MacBook Air to 10.8.5, I read some interesting stuff on MacWorld about the update. Turns out it included the MacBook Air Software Update 1.0 – which was released on 18 July but was only available for Mid-2013 MBAs. This update included a fix for “an issue that in rare instances may cause an intermittent loss in wireless connectivity”. And that of course is the issue I had on my Mid 2012 MBA. Better late than never, I guess.

It explains why my WiFi has been robust since the update, anyway.

It’s only f*cking Green Day, Dude!

I’ve been waiting to see Green Day for years now (missed out on tickets in 2005) and yesterday I finally got to see them! Part of their world tour, we saw them on their second night at the O2 and it was worth the wait – they were awesome. They played for nearly 3 hours, a mix of new (21st Century Breakdown) and old (Idiot, Dookie, etc.).

Green Day, still the best f*cking band in the world!

Know Your Enemy

I know mine. Procrastination. Well, actually it’s enemies: procrastination and being distracted down the easy path.

I have really let my guitar playing slide (no pun intended) over the last few months. There’s been so much important stuff to deal with that setting time aside to practice playing the guitar was not easy, so it just wasn’t happening. It needs more dedication than, for example, surfing the net or going on the XBox for half an hour.

Anyway I was browsing the magazine racks at the weekend and spotted the latest Total Guitar, which I do buy every now and again. Their riff of the month was Green Day’s “Know Your Enemy”, so I bought it. That Green Day track is so good (as is the whole 21st Century Breakdown album. So my next goal is to learn the Know Your Enemy riff and this will galvanise me into spending more time on the guitar.

It’s time to ROCK!
