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

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’

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.

They need to do away with the calorie charts on food and just put "You should only eat two of these today!" on the packaging instead. I've nearly finished these. :-(

One of the laziest scammers I've seen in a long time.

So the TV said something about Google no longer supporting its Movie app and promptly deleted it. I can download the Movies I bought from Google, but they're in some fooked up format that means they can only be played on an Android device. I wish I'd bought DVD's from Amazon now because I bet Google is going to stop its Movie service soon, and I'll lose all my purchases.

Ooh! Hello, thunder.

So, if it happens in the UK, it's Brexit, but if it happens in Europe, it's just logistics.

One shop? In Brussels? Alright.
I bet there's more.

It would seem I've won something: "Ecency Discord Giveaway #32 Winner - Congrats!" 500 @ecency points. #hive

Still waiting for some help. :-(

I am reworking an old favourite song for all those people putting petrol in water bottles.

My cold has gone, so why are my nostrils continually filling with two gallons of sticky yellow snot mucus?

!Friendica Support Hi, I upgraded via git yesterday to the latest version. Friendica is working, but I cannot access the admin page; the browser says it does not exist.

I've looked in the root directory where the URL points, and there is no admin folder or file. This was working before I upgraded, by the way. Any thoughts or ideas?


There is no truth in the rumour that Tesla drivers are hanging around petrol stations laughing their bollocks off.

Upgraded #friendica I can log in. It looks like it's working, but the Admin page is gone or no longer accessible? @Alan I may have to go to the "Fuck Off." support service?
It helps if you run
bin/composer.phar install --no-dev

Oops! fooking n00b!

Glad youโ€™ve got your admin page back up ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

It's one of those 'Floating around' days today. People keep hovering around outside my door. "If the keyboard is clicking then I'm doing something innit!"

Hmm? #friendica has an update. I'm not well enough. ๐Ÿค’ ๐Ÿคง ~friendica ~friendica

Oh dear- that doesnโ€™t sound great.

Have some Lemsip, take some paracetamol, man-up and stop being such a pussy ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
I am on the way to being cured, however, now I have coughing fits like I'm smoking 80 Woodbines a day! However, I now have a substantial amount of greeny-yellow sticky globs so if anyone has run out of blue-tac?

Here we go. EVERYONE is panic buying fuel around here.
