Movember isn’t normally something I take part in. For one, I can’t grow a moustache, being a female and all, however this year I shall be taking part. You may already that I write for the Number 1 BlackBerry dedicated site CrackBerry, which comes under the Mobile Nations network. This year, the Mobile Nations crew are coming together to raise money during Movember.
If haven’t heard about it before, Movember occurs annually during the month of November and guys give their razors and shavers a rest and grow a moustache. What for? To raise money for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
So why am I taking part if I can’t grow a moustache? I’m a Mo Sista who’s supporting my Mo Bro colleagues in growing their moustaches.
If you’d like to help me (and the rest of the Mobile Nations crew) in raising money for good causes, visit my page and donate some money. All my donations go towards the Mobile Nations network. You can also join up yourself and grow a moustache (if you’re a guy) and raise money too.
So, I’ve decided to set up some of my online presence and I will now be adding to my You Tube account more than I have been lately. I’m am starting off with some music videos. When I say that I don’t mean as in professionally made ones, I mean by making some home videos of my with my guitar and singing some of my favourite songs.
If you’re not yet subscribed to my You Tube account, check it out now, I’m guitardeejay on You Tube. I’ll be putting up a Music section where I shall share the You Tube videos on this website for those who prefer to get them via the existing RSS feed.
This website has been my personal blog for long time now. Going through different iterations in its time. If you have been following my blog the past few months you’ll know that I have ventured in to becoming an app developer, mainly for the BlackBerry Platform. I’ve continued to use this blog of both my personal posts and business posts, in regards to anything related to app development. However, in my aim to separate my personal thoughts from my upcoming projects I’ve decided to create another website purely for my app projects, as well as to make things a little tidy.
This sight will continue to be my personal blog where I share life experiences and personal thoughts. I will occasionally mention my projects on here but the main hub of things regarding my app development will go on the new website. The new website is currently in the works but I will announce it here once it launches.
I must say, I’ve immersed myself very much in this London 2012 Olympic Games. More than I have in any of the previous Olympics Games. Of course, one of the biggest reasons is because it is being held on home turf and while I’m a few hundred miles from the main action, I can say I’ve really got into the Olympic Spirit.
First thing I do in the morning is turn on the TV and flick through to the Red Button to pick an event to watch. I’ve been mixing it up, watching a lot of the different sporting events, even handball, which I had never watch a match of before. Growing up, I was very much a sporty person. Looking forward to P.E. lessons and sports day at the end of the year. I used to do pretty well in Athletics, always taking part in the 1500m, long jump and 100m hurdles but never really took it further than high school. I was more of a “I want to try everything” person. I’d play tennis during the summer. Started young doing karate (I now do ITF TaeKwon-Do). Even playing a bit of basketball, even though I was short. I just loved to do sports. I wasn’t too bad at football either. Because of this love for sport, I love to watch it, as most people probably do. As I grew older I didn’t do as much sport but still loved to watch it on TV whenever I could.
July 27th 2012. It was a Friday night that would me and family glued to the TV, with billions around the world as all eyes were on London as it kicked off the opening ceremony to the 30th Olympic Games.
Living up in Scotland means that I was not as fully aware of everything that was going on in preparation for the London Games but I certainly wasn’t going to miss it once it started. So, long before 9pm I was all set up to watch. I’m sure quite a lot of people watched the ceremony so I won’t go through a play-by-play. I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed the opening ceremony. It was truly British, with iconic British faces thrown in the mix. For one, it was awesome to see Mr. Bean take part in the ceremony. You got to love Mr. Bean. What about James Bond and the Queen? Our Queen certainly has a sense of humour, entering the stadium in style
Last Thursday, June 14th 2012, I made my way down to London on a long journey with four others. While it was tiring, when we got there, the tiredness had gone and it was all excitement for the rest of the day. A queue had already formed by the time we got there (15 minutes after doors opened at 8:30am). It didn’t take us long to get in to pick up our badges and be ushered up the stairs to the holding room for some tea or coffee.
You could feel the buzz in the air while developers talked amongst each other, sipping for their cups. Soon enough it was time to head into the main hall where the keynote would be given. It was a pretty big hall and slowly it filled up. With London a sold out venue, there was 500+ developers in attendance. It certainly was going to be a jam packed room.
The newest release for the ITF Taekwon-Do Guide app was approved through App World and is now available to download, if you haven’t done so already. This latest update includes more Korean terminology and a few changes to the step-by-step instructions.
If you currently have the app installed, I suggest that you uninstall the app first then reinstall through App World. If you just go ahead and update it will produce two icons for the app on your homescreen. If this is the case, please uninstall version 1.0.0 from your PlayBook.
Hopefully, future updates will not have this error.
