Car upgrade and meme

Woohoo. Decided last night it was about time I upgraded the car stereo to something with an aux-in so I could use my MP3 jukebox in the car without resorting to FM transmitters with occasionally crappy quality, especially as next project may entail lots of driving to Reading for a couple of months. Only meant to pop along to the local Halfords to see what was available but they offered to fit it there and then. Yep, that definitely sounds much better. Only downside is that the new stereo doesn't have an input for the steering wheel controls :-(

Anyway, so, beware all who travel in my car - I now have 60Gb of my tastes in music with which to torture you!

Reading? May god have mercy on your soul. The one-way system certainly won't.

Client appears to be based at Reading International Business Park. I assume that means I can avoid the one-way system?

Before Sunrise/Before Sunset

Just feel the need to comment on what an exeptional & delightful pair of movies these are.

Though it's mildly humourous to see them in between Aliens, The Killer, and Escape From Ney Work on yout list.

Wow. Late comment!

And, yes, they are, aren't they? I guess they do stick out rather, next to the others I listed but, hey, I have my soppy side too. Hell, one of my other favourites is Adventures In Baby Sitting!
