well i did manage to get tickets to the Sterophonics gig at the weekend , its was a great concert people in planes were the warm up band and they where pretty good, i liked there song vampire with its eire wah wah effect.
the phonics where great they didn't just play there new album as i suspected they played some from the new CD but the old classics. bar tender and then thief , local boy in the photograph and my fav thousand trees. all in all was a great concert in a small venue that they would never have played back home.

a great time was had by all

End Of The Fringe

i saw my last two plays of the fringe on Saturday and Sunday .
on Saturday i went to watch sherlock homes , sherlock turned out to be female ,which was a little strange but apart from that i liked it , but then i am biased as i like most things Sherlock Holmes.

Sunday afternoon i went to see In Tow this was a one man play, it was really good

i would say that out of the ones i saw my favorite was die roten punkte and then second was In Tow, totally different types of plays but with one thing in common they were really good.

Fringe – Mechanical Bride

Last night was Mechanical Bride, in concept i thought it was very good idea , but in reality i dont think it crossed over well.
so kind of dull! but hey thats my opinion and there where lots of people in there that seemed to really like it.

i know i don't have much to say about it ……i guess if you don't have anything good to say then don't say anything 🙂

well there is more theater tonight and tomorrow

A Fringe Experiance

The Fringe festival is nearly over , so i thought i better go and get some fringe-ing in so i got some tickets to see Die Roten Punkte Super Musikant, i had read good reviews of it.
it is a comedy rock concert , and even the things i had read on the web did not prepare me for how funny this was .
it is definetly a must see if it is coming to your city, for someone who is very in to many types of music like me it was so funny , but the audience consisted of many different generations and types of people . infact the gorup i went with was made up of people from 3 generations and from 3 different continents and we all had such a ball.

the fringe finishes on sunday and i have some tickets for shows for each day untill then so i will keep you posted.

A Few Days in to Hardy

So a few days in to Kubuntu Hardy,

i still have not sorted out screen lock problem , but then again i have not really looked in to it because i have been working on a media project, but something i did notice completely by accident….i have a HP dv9000 and as i mentioned i had been using gutsy on it for about a year so i got used to all the touch buttons along the top not working ,i accidentally caught them and was surprised to find they all work as they are supposed too …joy of joy i thought….well maybe i wasn't that ecstatic but i was quite surprised.

any way busy weekend this weekend , its the last weekend of fringe festival so i have some theater to watch this weekend and whats more the weather says its going to hit 30c by Sunday .so its going to be hot in the city!

over and out !

OS Upgrade To Hardy

Well i finally did it.
After putting it off for 5 months i finally upgraded to the latest Kubuntu, i was worried after all the problems i had installing gutsy on my laptop with audio and kernel problems etc, but there was no update to firefox 3 and no update to amsn so i though time to get the latest.

After installing it i was so surprised no problems like the moto it just worked.
so i installed all my software and decided to give it a whirl and i have to say …i like it.

a few bugs with the compiz , you can turn on desktop effects in the kde menu just enable it and comiz is instaled and setup and you just select the amount of effect you want , but be warned if you decide to disable compiz it uninstals it and leaves you with no window manager so you have no little x to click to close it.
i did have a problem with evolution i had to open it twice to get it to read the mail …that was a strange one. just fixed its self
kaffene asked for codecs when i wanted to play a file and promptly downloaded and installed them …. thats how it should be 🙂

when you lock the screen (i do this all the time) it doesnt blank it …its just dimmed and you can see the Desktop althoguh its greyed out and when you move the mouse it blacks out and asks for pass but revert back to being greyed and you can see it ….now that for me …i just dont like and i am sure tis a bug…. i will have to look for a resolution.

So the verdict is that i like it ! and Kubuntu  just keeps getting better
