Lady Luck Has Been On My Side

Lately, I've been quite lucky.. I randomly seem to be winning things. Now I'm not saying I'm winning massive amazing prizes, but every little bit helps.

A lady from Microsoft at university dragged me over to test some software, such as Windows 7, OneNote, SkyDrive and something else that I can't quite remember. Anyways, I was reluctant to do it, but at the end of the demos they tell you if you've won. The little prizes were sweets and USBs with little memory, the big prizes were laptops and an Xbox.

I happened to win a computer mouse, which I know doesn't sound like fun, but it's actually pretty cool. I'm the kind of person who loves technology, but I'm a bit of a destroyer (at least that's what my family nickname me!), and to turn my mouse on I've got to snap it in half.. which is amazing to me.. I get to "break" something in order to make it work! It's smooth to the touch, great to use and it's wireless!

You're probably wondering which mouse I'm rambling about it's the Microsoft Arc Touch (you can see a tutorial here) and at $59.95, it's not a bad win!


Wow.. I must be sad to get so excited over a mouse!

On another note, SkyDrive is really useful, especially for documents and creating groups and sharing word documents as groups on Facebook aren't really as flexible.


The other win, which I found out about yesterday was a £25 Amazon voucher, which is from a mini newsletter that my university puts out monthly. All I had to do was find the webpage with the love heart on (in aid of Valentine's Day) and email them to tell them where I found it - really easy!

So yes, all in all I'm a very happy bunny!

Messenger has moved to Skype

Messenger was retired in April 2013 and is no longer available or supported on most Mac and Windows operating systems. *

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

Marvel and Sony Reach Agreement For Spiderman

A quick glimpse into our archive would reveal we here at Don't Laugh, People are fans of comic books and their respective movies. I do not often divulge into a battle of DC vs. Marvel vs. the others, because I typically enjoy plenty from all (but yes, I do think Marvel is the best for art and for stories). However, "the last 24 hours have been really exciting."* Kudos to you if you didn't need to look up that quote... damn you if you did. *Dr. Okun - Independence Day

It was announced by many sources late last night/early this morning, that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures had finally reached an agreement for their partnership in order to introduce Spiderman into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (where The Avengers live). Marvel will reportedly allow Sony to retain Spiderman's rights to let Amy Pascal produce films in the title, but she will be aided by Marvel's top man, Kevin Feige, in her endeavors. Feige will be involved in Spiderman's 2017 standalone fil…
