Posh Screen Protector


A screen protector arrived today for my iPad, and if the packaging is anything to go by it should be f*cking awesome! I have used a few protectors over the years but never have any of them turned up in such a posh looking folder.

I have fitted it, and seems to look the part, time will tell if it is any good.




Having had issues with the image sizes that the iPad was receiving from the cameras (about 2000 pixels by 1400, and nothing that the authors of any of the software  worked) for the past couple of weeks,  I decided to do a complete restore & re-install all of the applications, which seems to have solved the problem, however, in the meantime I accidentally seem to have ordered an iPad pro.

So with the impending release of iOS 11, and the fact that Photogene has been reporting that the next iOS upgrade will not be supported, and the author seems to have gone AWOL, I decided that I should prepare by updating the apps that I am going to be using when the upgrade arrives.

Having dealt with the author of ShutterSnitch I shall be retaining that application, as there maybe some really interesting developments on their way,  PicturePro will probably be retained along with Filterstorm in the short term, I shall evaluate them in the first few months and settle on one of them.

Transmit will remain as it is an app that I use across all of the platforms that I use. Snapseed will remain as the route to social media & WeTransfer will remain as  the way of moving video footage.


Busy Bunny


Several jobs today including GVs, a beer festival when no-one was awake & Fulham v Cardiff

Busy, Busy

IMG_0562Had the head unit in the car upgraded to a DAB unit, wanted to keep it OEM so went for the VW RCD 510 DAB, as the canbus needed to be upgraded to enable the unit to work correctly, I decided to get the professionals involved. What should have been a simpleish job turned out to be a little more involved than anticipated. However, after 5 hours it was completed. New head unit & MMI fitted!

Then over the weekend, I realised that something wasn’t right, the display was so dark that it could barely be seen. It appears that there is an ambient light sensor that was covered by the Parrot hands-free control unit. I have relocated it & it all works as it should. I have also now hardwired the Dash Cam, and so far no RF interference with the DAB.  So many thanks to http://www.cartronics.co.uk for their work.


Completely Cream Crackered


What a weekend, glorious sunshine and I was out  working in it the whole weekend. Saturday included a visit to Brentford v Wolves, whilst Guildford City hosted & beat Horley Town, Sunday was spent mostly at Wings & Wheels, until to sunburned to sit comfortably in the sun any more, then today (bank holiday Monday) I had a food festival, a sports day & Woking v Torquay United (with a sly 10 minutes at Godalming v Guildford City who won again).  Now I am officially & completely & utterly knackered. So a cheeky couple of cold ones are probably in order.

A great win…

GCFC v Camberley Town 0284


Guildford City after a win in the FA Cup, during the week, today met old rivals in the next round. It is seldom a bore draw in the league, & this was one that Guildford will look back with satisfaction, running out 4-0 winners, and reality it could and probably should have been a few more.

City were unstoppable on the day, and I don’t recall the City keeper being tested very often. The FA Cup draw for the next round takes place tomorrow (Monday) hopefully a good draw and a continued run would be good, for the club & the club’s coffers.
