How to have DAB Radio in your Car

This was the best present from Christmas 2011. It is the Pure Move 2500 Personal DAB Radio (in black) which I can connect in my car via a 3.5mm stereo cable which I bought separately (providing your car has one). I use a long cable about 1.5m as this is the arial which would normally be done by the earphones. Though reception is not perfect for a car, I have found that it is very good on the journeys I have made even if I have to hook the cable over the drivers mirror to improve reception. If there is poor reception it doesn't last long, from a few to less than 5 seconds.

The battery is amazing. I charge it anything from every two to four weeks. As it is portable you can remove from the car and slip into your pocket or bag and a lock switch to prevent it switching on (or off).

SPAM a Clearer Look

I have noticed that this week SPAM to a particular email account have increased loads just this week. Where I would normally get about 5 to 8 per day it is now around 40. Though most is identical.

Even though all SPAM is caught by the email system and placed in SPAM, it is always a good idea just to check that nothing has ended in there which you want. To make it simpler change the sort order by Subject instead of by Date as this groups the SPAM.

If there is an email which is caught by mistake, make sure you tick and check the Not Spam button.

To prevent good email from being treated by your email system as SPAM make sure you add that person to your Contacts as this will help.

My name is too popular

From time to time I have Googled my name to see what there is out there. As they say anything published on the internet will probably remain out there forever. I was surprised then at what came up, things like reviews or comments mainly about software.

Now it appears there are a lot of people out there who share my name. There were always people with the slightly different spelling of my surname but now lots with the same first and second name, lots on Facebook.

I don't have a problem with this, it just means you have to work harder to get yourself noticed on the web/internet if that is what you want to do.

Not Perfect but...

The for this see if you can use a dictation machine and Microsoft windows seven speech recognition to write a blog. 
This is basically a test to see if you can record what you want to say to an Olympus WS-110 Digital Voice Recorder then play it with Notepad open using Speech Recognition from Microsoft in Windows 7. I then copy&paste it into Blogger. The above is raw unedited so not bad.
