I am very slowly ripping my DVD collection into soft copies. Sigh.

Currently watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which is the first HP film I came across in my collection and I wanted a change from endless things to do with Sherlock Holmes. Honestly, there’s not a film or TV series with Sherlock Holmes in the title that I don’t buy. From Sherlock Holmes’s Smarter Brother, through Jeremy Brett, to the Hammer version of the Hound of the Baskervilles, you name it, I’ve got it. I think I must have five different versions of the Hound.

In other news, I still don’t have a job. One of these days someone will have to be fooled into taking me on.

Kitty is a happy kitty.

I have started ripping my DVDs having lost the soft copies I had amassed when I had to reinstall my operating system. It’s tedious work, but I should have a more complete set of the DVDs I own when I’ve finished.

What I won’t have is the ‘illegal’ soft copies I’d downloaded over the years. Boo! I shall have to find them again, though some are bound to have disappeared. It’s a bit annoying, but I’ll learn to live with it. I am copying the soft versions to an external hard drive as I go along, as I learn from my terrible mistakes. Always make a back-up! At least my documents were backed up to the cloud, so that’s not an issue.

In other news, there is no other news.

Smokey is doing well, though she did give me a scare by having diarrhoea for a couple of days. I think she’d got into my left over milk from my morning cereal and upset her tummy. That seems to have settled, thankfully. Silly kitty. I’ve also started giving her a more expensive dry food, as she wouldn’t eat the cheaper Tesco’s own brand dry food. Just turned her little furry nose up and refused to countenance it. We had a Mexican stand-off for a few days and then I caved. That cat has a backbone of steel.
