Recovered my sick Canon 350d

Location of Internal Date Battery

My trusty Canon 350d was sick, it would switch on but not take a shot.  I tried removing the battery for a while to see if it would reset but it didn’t make any difference.

I came across a post on which said to try the following:

1.) Turn off the camera.
2.) Remove both camera batteries (The main battery and the internal date/time battery which is beside the main battery)
3.) Close battery cover.
4.) Turn on/off switch to “On”.
5.) Let camera sit for at least 15 seconds.
6.) Turn on/off switch to “Off”.
7.) Re-install both batteries and turn camera on.

And it worked! Back in business… :)

I’ve reordered the channel list for the Ferguson Ariva 120 Combo box similar to how the sky channels are ordered.  The pay channels are obviously still scrambled.  The abs file below contains the channel list and a patched version of the 2.15B8 firmware, use it to update at your own risk:

Had a fantastic time at my third F1 race, we were seated at the first corner and had a great view of the cars.

New Car

Said “what the heck” and decided to get myself a car…

I’ve driven other cars but this is the first time I can refer to a car as my car… my own policy etc etc and it feels really cool.

Can’t wait to get the keys :)

Lack of Water

by on Jan.06, 2010, under Uncategorized

Am beginning to get a bit annoyed at the water being switched off at 8pm until 7am, its been happening since the cold weather began.  The funny thing is that I learned about it on rather than from the council or any local media… I genuinely thought the pipes were freezing each evening… grrr…
