Power Failure

In the end the power was out for several hours - at about the worst time of day since it went off about 3pm came back on for a short while (around 15-20 mins) and then went off again and came back about 7.

But I've decided that I so want a portable DVD player. Minor quibble is that it needs to be multi-region as my sister keeps sending things from Oz. My computer quite happily played the first three DVDs from Oz and then suddenly decided it was region locked to region 2. Although it will still play the three region 4 disks it has already played it won't play anything new. Very strange.

The demands for playschool were got round by playing a CD using my portable CD player for which I have a small pair of speakers as well as the earphones.

I wonder what caused the power failure?

DVD players are really cheap these days and most have all regions capability. I think mine was £28 from Tesco (a Phillips).

Your LJ theme and font seems huge. Is it meant to be like this?

I wonder what's up with the font. It looks slightly on the small side to me. {smile}

LOL, weird :-) The whole page (just on this journal) is like size 5 font and the icons are 200x200.

You're right that it's weird. For me, the icons are normal, and the type maybe 9 point? It's bigger than eight, but not a lot. {lop-sided smile}
