For the love of The Pond Gods!

Dear Unison Sync
It's all very well saying "add preference "dontchmod"" when using the GUI.
I had to figure out that you meant the [hidden] .prf file in .unison and then look at lots of search results to find out the actual format was: dontchmod=true after breaking it several times with the wrong syntax.

Why is there not an option in the GUI to perform that task?

I am glad I am at work today. The hallway of #CastleCannon is being screeded and cannot be walked on for four hours. This means the wife is confined to the front room and kitchen till around one thirty today.

Can't wait for Twitter to start bleating about the cost of the funeral when QEII pops her clogs which it would seem is imminent.

State of those hands! Poor or no circulation.

Today, Burger King, 12:40

I shit you not! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
I've had to revert back to horizontal desktops because Gnome 42.2 hates the Vertical Overview extension. Was having to Ctrl+Alt+F3 then Ctrl+Alt+F2 because the screen lock kept freezing then all the apps icons disappeared.
Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS is a lot happier now. :-(

"Alas, poor Server, I knew him well."

When someone you haven't spoken to for probably twenty years phones you up: "Hi Pete, remember me? I've got some work you might be interested in quoting for." I'm ALWAYS interested in quoting for work.

Of course, no sympathy, so it's not worth saying anything.

I can remember almost religiously selecting "Freebird" on the pub jukebox at least twice, if not three times, most nights, but I don't remember anyone or me, for that matter, singing along to it? ๐Ÿค”

Had a customer's HDD [supposedly] go faulty and Windows no longer accessed it.

Voilร ! Ubuntu 12.04 to the rescue!

Bugger! I think my #raspberrypi 4 is down at home. I wonder if the CPU has burnt out in this heat?

You know, I genuinely love @Grammarly and personally, I think it's well worth the money. Still, it's marginally crap regarding Twitter et al. because the AI doesn't understand you're effectively having a conversation on social media. So it has poor points of reference.

Little do they know, but I listened to the opening few minutes of @thebugcast last Friday and I have to say it must have been a very old recording because Dave and Caroline sounded waaay too young.

A couple of the lads have been working the last few days outdoors. One of them was sorting out the van when a bottle of sun tan lotion was dropped onto the floor.

๐— ๐—ฒ: "What the...? You're supposed to be working! Next, you'll be showing me lip balm!"

Why do fookers up the park jogging or on bikes insist on maintaining their line of approach towards you in an inevitable game of 'chicken' when there is ample room and time for them to maintain their momentum by either moving to the left or the right?

Be my Wife.
Probably one of my favourite songs. I so hope he was smacked off his head when he recorded it, just like the video. Slightly crying inside, still numb he's gone.

Drinking beer and listening to Bjรถrk way too loud on headphones.

Poor Charlie, I walk him every morning before work. Today, however, I had to come to the office early.

Charlie, as usual, came up to me, tail wagging like crazy: "Sorry mate, mum's going to have to walk you this morning." His tail stopped dead, and I swear to the pond gods, his face read. "WTF?"

If there's one thing I've learnt using #hive it's that members who use their mobiles for blogging and interacting far outstrip people like me who just use a PC or Laptop.

Blimey, Sixgun productions are 15 years old today.

This morning's game in the office is; to stay on the phone as long as possible because that way, you don't have to do anything else! I swear to The Pond Gods I heard one guy's voice in the hallway, and yet his extension line light was on??

I was desperate for a magnum ice cream last night, but when the dog and I looked in the freezer, there was none. I did, however, find a tub of carte d'Or ice cream hidden under some frozen chicken breasts. When the wife finds out, I'm dead!

I'm getting tired of companies jumping on the bandwagon of price increases when for their business model, there is no need.

NEVER get rid of contact details; you never know when they might come in handy, even ten years down the line. "I know someone who works there!"

That moment you receive a text reminder about paying your credit card, and you search through your account statement because you're sure you paid it.

I've forgotten who created this, but FB says it was eight years ago.

I have just eaten a rice pudding. And I did knock the skin off it first. :-P
(I suspect nobody says that anymore? "Knock the skin off a rice pudding.")

Over 300 drain covers have been stolen in my local area. The little tinkers.

It's at times like this I wish I hadn't given up Claymore dancing.

I think my cheap desktop fan has given up any pretence at even trying. ๐Ÿฅต

Some of us are having to work in this heat; I'll have you know!

I've been asked a few times with what feels like a snear in the question: "Why are you running your own instance?" This is why.

It's not fair; everyone else in OpenSource is having an event. ๐Ÿ˜ข

I'm waiting for my order of 100 Laptops to drop. Day three and counting.

I have just discovered a new skill! If I bellow "Go Away!" at the telephone either someone else picks it up or the caller immediately puts the phone down.
