I have put the lights up on the house at #CastleCannon

Don't you just love it when someone comes on the phone almost sobbing their eyes out that the company router has gone kaput, and yet three hours later, you're still waiting for them to respond to the quote you sent! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

OMG. So I was like: "Meh, why would I buy a rehash of his early stuff? Some of it was terrible." What a brilliant album TOY is!

Probably the biggest turnout I've seen for a long time.

I worked from home yesterday and the day before and they've put a new strip light in my office!

I have been playing Call of Duty Vanguard and them Japanese are sneaky feckers!

Tad busy today.

When you're not having a very good day, it's a joy when someone says something nice about you. I do love the #Hive community.


Just had some "Trick or Treat" visitors. It's pissing down out there, poor sods.
I noticed it was dad doing the chaperone honours.

Jayzus! That's the second M2 Drive that's fried

Oi, Google. Any chance you can tell me which one? Oh wait, it's a sort of advert in't it?

"One or more of the passwords saved in your Google Account appeared in a data breach from a site or app that you use. Your Google Account is not affected.

I'd love one of these, but the shipping cost to the UK will make it very expensive. :-( #raspberrypi

Oh god! Someone in the office just did a massive sneeze, and now their screen is covered in sticky snot. ๐Ÿคข

If you've got Netflix and you're a Geek, you need to watch this:

I used to think that news reports about housing shortages in the UK were a load of old codswallop and designed to encourage councils to tear up Brownfield status on as much land as possible. Having watched my daughter desperately trying to buy a flat 14 times so far, I can see there really is a shortage of affordable housing.

Little did I know in the 70s that I would be stopping off at a garage to pick up chocolate Croissants for breakfast at the office one day. ๐Ÿฅ

ROTFLMAO The BBC is getting really desperate now!

I just can't shift this stupid cough!

No breakfast this morning. I'm starving, and all I have in my desk drawer is a pot noodle. ๐Ÿฅบ

Are people really that stupid? When we all watched that video a while back of a man kicking a robot mule and the thing desperately trying to right itself, did you not stop and say to yourself, "Hang on, all that needs is a gun and a camera!"

It's about time! I've ordered my T-800 decades ago.

I am back on the Statins, so surely I can go back on these?

Great! The stupid plastic frame of my glasses has broken. I tried some of that rubbish Gorilla glue and now have glue all over the lens. I can tell how the day is going to pan out.

It gives me a great sense of ๐—–๐—ผ๐—บ๐—บ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ถ๐˜๐˜† to hear that staff returning to the office from the protective bubble of working from home or Furlough are all coming down with coughs and colds that refuse to go away now that we're all back to breathing one another's air. ๐Ÿคง ๐Ÿค’

Price of #Hive must be dropping? I see my account is no longer worth over $2000.00 :'(

Currently watching Bad Sports on Netflix. I bet he did lock that referee in?

Oh, mighty Pond Gods, help me get through today because I'm not feeling the milk of human kindness so far.

What do you need? Back rub? Hug? THC? Petrol?

When there's a successful solution, EVERYONE wants to get involved; run with it; cover themselves in glory.

The moment there's a problem with the solution, suddenly it becomes one person's sole responsibility.

Well, there's a first (For me.) my Keyboard at work has died! I spent ages scratting around trying to find batteries, but after two swap-outs, I came to the conclusion the Keyboard is dead; it has ceased to be; it is an ex keyboard.

First thoughts regards Windows 11?
I'm still thinking.

Like most OS upgrades, it's pretty underwhelming for the end-user unless there's sexy new icons or the start menu is moved to the top right corner or file explorer has an overhaul. just like Linux or any other OS for that matter, all the work is 'under the hood' on Windows 11

The quick fire round was a little 'Nirvana and R.E.M. heavy'. Not quite as brilliant as I remembered it. Still Evan played along.

Broken one of my golden rules and unsubscribed from a couple of shops/organisations. You should NEVER unsubscribe; instead, put the sender on a junk list or send them to /dev/null because once you unsubscribe, you're confirming they have the correct address and that a human interacts with it.

And this is where GDPR kicks in. Yay!
Nobody takes any notice of that in the UK

Due to Brexit, as it is an European law?
Na, We're British. We don't take any notice.

Running my own mailservers it's easy to just create an alias for each shop or other website. That way you can cut them off in not time and know precisely where the junk is coming from. Also useful when some amazon vendor tries to "convince" you to change your bad review.

It just shows how dominant Facebook is in our lives when an outage causes almost worldwide panic.
