Hands up all those who would have thought 0 was the correct entry for turning something off, not leaving the entry blank? ðŸ˜ą

OK, so I've been playing down these price rises, brushing them off with comments like: "There's no use moaning; you've got to have it, so you've got to pay for it." This lunchtime, it hit me personally! A pound, A POUND! I can't believe they've stuck a pound on the larger I've taken a shine to!


Marmite peanuts are WAAAY too addictive!


A customer has asked me to arrange for a redirect on a domain they own. The site it redirects to is very nice, although, for some strange reason, they asked us to point to /en? The site has one of those "Choose your language features", so I said: "Huh! Given everyone is falling over themselves to be seen to support Ukraine, I would have thought the default would be UA?" Select UA, and the language is English! Bwahahaha ðŸĪĢ

Well, that's fooked it! No more Blade Runner then? It won't be the same without Vangelis writing the music for it. :-(

"The cable does not suit my laptop."
Aye? Is it the wrong colour? Is it last season's cable? Is it too thin? Is it too fat? Is it too straight? Is it too curly? How does it not suit your laptop?

I really don't know why I pay for @amazon Prime? I ordered two items earlier that clearly said "Delivery by 7pm today" on BOTH items, which is perfect for what I want them for, and yet I've had an email saying they'll be here tomorrow! ðŸ˜Ą

Wallowing in self-pity and complaining about your situation and the struggles everyone faces is like scratching an itchy part of your body. It becomes pretty pleasurable right up to the point that you start bleeding. Finding a solution to the problem is a better use of your time rather than making a bad situation worse.

Is it sunny in Espaniol?

@Sredni Vashtar in Italy but yes, very sunny and approx. 28°C outside
I was asking if it's sunny in Spain. It's always sunny in Italy! Afer all, it's ITALY!

Setting yourself goals is good; others, such as your employers, setting goals can also be enlightening. Setting unrealistic goals is not only pointless; it's cruel. Achievable targets equal the desire to take on even more challenges.

@Sredni Vashtar good morning sir!

I don't know where the Daily Mail gets its leads from, but I just checked eBay, and there are loads on there for between ÂĢ30 and ÂĢ60. Pity, as I was going to rush home and dig out my Gen II 30GB.

You know you're getting old when all the celebrities including, Film, TV, Radio and music that you grew up with, matured along to. Comforted you in times of need, made you laugh and cry and even helped you create your own family start kicking the bucket.

Don't go home when you finish work. Go to your local polling station and vote! I don't care who you vote for. I couldn't give a toss if you're one of those.
"Get the Tories out!"
"Keep Labour out!"
"Don't let the Liberals in!"
"Greens, who are they?"
JUST VOTE!

Vote!
A sign at the polling station reads 'vote here today'. In the background is a church sign that reads 'Today we are praying for revival.'
