Timber Retaining Wall Completed

Today marked the installation of the last post and section of our Timber Retaining Wall.

It’s not exactly retaining a great deal, it’s just to give us a better presentation on the side of the house and enabled us to plant a hedging plant. Will see how it grows over time.

This is now considered completed. Unfortunately I have moved on to even further pending jobs in backyard.

Will post a completed photo very soon.

New Computer Build Update2

Today I completed some installation tasks on the machine and added an TP-Link Wireless card (Model: TL-WN881ND) which I’ve had for a while and is a spare unit.

I really like this card as it works on Windows 8 upwards, and you don’t have to install any drivers or software. It works out of the box with Windows.

Here is a picture of the finished computer.


New Computer Build Update1

System was built tonight. I added to the machine a spare Sandisk 120G SSD drive I had, and also a SATA DVD Burner Optical Drive.

I had a few problems installing the CPU cooler, but after some initial tweaking got things completed.

Very impressed with the performance from the little Celeron processor. Certainly makes a nice workstation for general word processing, internet and email usage.

Swim Spa – Delivery

Today was the delivery day for the Swim Spa. Was feeling a bit nervous and you’ll understand why when you see the pictures we took of the process.

Everything didn’t go smoothly unfortunately, however, things did work out fine in the end with the process, so I won’t go into detail as it’s of no value.

I was very impressed with Trent from DPW Plant Hire and would be happy to recommend them to anyone.

Let’s roll the photos…..

Now the next step will be completing the installation process and getting water put in. That’s going to be interesting as this unit takes 7,000 litres I believe.
