Wii Fit Spreads Fungal Infection

Not sure but i think theres going to be a spread of Fungal Infections of the Feet as most Wii owners now have Wii Fit and you find everyone in your family wanting a go plus all your friends and even the neighbours coming around, so this can't be good as that Wii Fit board is sitting there all day carrying god knows what

So it looks like every Wii Fit owner may have to setup a foot bath just like you have at the local swimming pool or give it a spray of Oust 3in1 now and then to keep any Fungal Infection or Verrucas at bay which i don't think anyone has thought of so far

Croydon Council Caught Fly Tipping

Yes strange this when councils around the land are giving people fines for little misdemeanor's like putting there bins out to early and other stupid things

So it looks like Croydon have double standards when it comes to the rules they follow

So the story of Croydon Council Caught Fly Tipping as you can see from the pics below the council have cut down a small tree on there land and for some strange reason they have been thrown over the fence onto private property which in anyones world is fly tipping

So if anyone from the council would like to explain why they have started dumping rubbish onto private land please leave a reply as i can't wait to hear it

Emma Wiggins Croydon Council

Well its a sad day when my other site may come to an early end The Vegetable Patch

Full story

Well i'm sorry to say the vegetable patch maybe a no go as we back onto a park in croydon and have a problem with footballs coming over into the garden as the fence the council put up is not higher enough so most weeks even days footballs come over and destroy the veg i planted, and after getting in contact with Emma Wiggins director of environment, cultural & public protection of croydon council who in her words said there not going to do anything about the problem as it's good enough for them i may have to put the vegetable patch on hold which is a shame when your trying to do your bit for the environment and grow your own

So if you would like to support me in this matter please write or phone Emma Wiggins and tell her what you think of Croydon Council who will not do anything about this problem

Update 29 may 2008

I've just had Emma Wiggins on the phone which i so wanted to go into one but that never gets you anywhere

Well she phone to say that she has been in contact with the department of planing who have said they a have looked into the matter but don't feel anything needs doing and that the undertaking of changing the fence is not needed but she did say that she will retake this matter back to them

Anyway like to thank Emma Wiggins for phoning and i can only hope this matter gets sort so i can get back on with my life

Scythe Shuriken Heatsink

Just ordered a Scythe Shuriken Heatsink as needed a new one as swapped my Thermalright SI-120 out of my other pc which wasn't working at the time but is now so after trying two of the old heatsinks i have about which are crap i decided to splash the cash and get a new one for my lovely old P4

So will report back on how good it cools a pentium 4 3.4 prescott aka the waffle maker

Spec Info

it turned up today

It does look a well made bit of kit with a quality feel to it and comes with fittings for most CPU fixings which fit into the side of the heatsink and are well secured

was a little bit of a pain fitting on motherboard which was already in case but not to bad and as for temps with the standard heatsink i was getting temps just under 50c idle which ain't good but the P4 Prescott does run hot so with Scythe Shuriken i'm now getting round about 40c which are better but with a Thermalright SI-120 you can get temps down to about 34c idle

So it does work well but if i had the choice i would hunt down a Thermalright SI-120 but i'm still happy with the Shuriken as it works but don't expect to be blown away by it's performance
