Post by: dilli-theclaw on 17 March 2011, 06:31: PM
I have been asked to give a talk for an organization which is fine, but it's in Luton and the only practical way i can get there would be by car or (their suggestion) taxi.

So they have suggested that I get that sorted and claim the travel expenses back which they say will take around a month - so I would have to loose £50 odd for a while.  Which when you don't have it is a fair amount.

Why? - by definition most people in my situation don't have that spare.  When the local council wanted me to do the same thing they organised a taxi for me and paid for it in advance.

Anyway I will no doubt pay it and go as it will be a very useful experience.

Pah I guess it's just me being a goit.
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: Dutchie on 17 March 2011, 07:09: PM
they should arrange for the transport if you cant pay for it or afford for their accounts department to send you the money. Have you talked to them and explained that you aren't able to pay for it or another option talk to the council as its probably something they've arranged

Stupid F*****g taxman, gonna get a very angry phone call tonight.

Pay day tomorrow and bonus payment as well to bad the taxman has decided to take my whole bonus of me in tax and more and it's mainly down to my company car thank's to Virgin not telling the taxman that I had a company car.

Ah so it's not the taxman to blame, but Virgin Media for not informing them in a timely fashion.  Company Cars are now often not an advantage to the employee due to the tax cost.  It's only an benefit if you do lots of business miles.  It's why I run my own vehicle and claim expenses, even though a car is essential for my job.
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: damien c on 24 March 2011, 12:02: PM
The issue is that my tax code has changed for the last 3 month's so I have been paying more then less and now more again, it really is a pain in the rear end.

I might give them a ring in a minute actually as it is dinner time.
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: damien c on 24 March 2011, 01:29: PM
Well phoned the tax office, only to find that they have not been backdating my tax, but instead have changed my tax code for next year to cover it.

Now I told them that my whole bonus has been taken in tax and they have said that it shouldn't of been but I will have to wait for my P60 and then phone them, and tell them the figures off it and then they can calculate if I have over or under paid tax.
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: Dutchie on 24 March 2011, 01:59: PM
yeah thats not the tax office fault mate.... I would blame your employer on that for not saying you got a company car.
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: Stu038 on 24 March 2011, 07:03: PM
Sorry but I don't wholly agree with this blame the employee rant. We all know that both the tax man, our various employers and ourselves screw up taxes everyday because the bloody things are so complex.

For me the responsibility for checking is down to the individual. Damien you should have contacted the tax office yourself and informed them that you had started a new job and would have use of a company car, you wouldn't even have had to phone them its only down the road in Salford iirc so you could have blagged some business mileage to do it if you wanted. They would have adjusted your tax code there and then, told you what it would be and approximately how much it would cost you. Even if you couldn't find the basic info such as price CO2 emissions etc on the fleet site Bill could of advised you what they would be.

Sorry mate but annoying as it is take it on the chin as a learning curve and make sure it doesn't happen to you again by being proactive about your money in future.

So it seems like it was the software that came with my blu-ray drive that was stoping the lightscribe working properly (It wouldn't burn more than a 1inch strip of the label) - I downloaded software from the lightsctibe site and it seems ok now.

I also had to install windvd as blu ray playback on cyberlink power dvd was crap when it worked at all.  Avatar wouldn't even play for exanple.

similar situation here Suicidal....but in my street the parking nazi is alright most of the time.

We did have a young guy probably a new starter that went down my street and put a ticket on every car on the double yellows but those quickly got taken off by the council as there isnt enough parking space and all the side streets near same story or parking permits.

Yep the photo licenses were a sly money grabber that escaped many folks when they were brought in because folks didn't read the small print which basically states they were only valid for 10 years the same as a passport, which is understandable to be honest.

Well it looks like 1 of my graphics cards is faulty, and causing my issues but I am going to try a fresh install of Windows tomorrow just incase it is a DirectX issue.

Ran heaven benchmark which was fine on 1 card, soon as I turned on sli it crashed so swapped the cards round and tried just 1 card and it crashed straight away.

Just going to have a quick game of blops and see what happens.

Well card 1 runs fine and so does card 2 when playing games on the individual card but card 1 passes the heaven benchmark fine but card 2 does not  :o

Strange how card 2 will play games but not pass a benchmark test and won't run in sli.

Called Scan and they have asked me to bring the whole lot back as in mobo, ram, cpu and the graphic's card's so they can test it all together so I will be having to deal with that on Saturday.

god damn s**** cars. well it got a major service last week and the bloke (whos done my cars for the last 7 years) ran the coder over it to look for any faults - but none came up, although the fuel filter was a bit manky.

anyway, thursday night was at the hospital with jack and had to go charge my phone in the car to make a call. sat there for about 10-15mins in idle charging away when for no reason the engine just died - but started straight away and nothing more happened.  but then yesterday we had just come out of tescos and were sat at the lights outside matalan - bill/damien and co know where i mean and again it just died in idle. best bit was  was it was at about 3pm and the roads were a ball ache, a couple of lads (poles i think) walking along just jumped in and helped me push it round to the car park - fair play to 'em as the missus wasn't able to do much apart from steer the thing.

so pops round to the mechanics house and he is going to re-run the diagnostics over it tomorrow - looks like it maybe the crank sensor, if it gets to hot it fails to send a signal to the ecu to fire more fuel into the engine. to top it off though the missus popped out earlier and just as she got outside home (in the process of turning around) it did it again, but this time although it restarted after leaving it to cool for a bit the fault light (orange car and spanner symbol) now stays light.


really can't afford this, it cost me £100 for a major service - and that's quite cheap, and will have a knock on effect on my new or in my case not soon to be new but 6 months in the future sort of new gfx that i'm not going to be able to afford for a while........................hmmmmm new gfx or taxman which comes first  ;D

That happend to my Vectra that I had, after 3 month's of buying the car the light came on got it tested and they said it was the crank position sensor, but mine decided one day to stop whislt I was driving and I managed to get it restarted but then it died at a set of light's so I had to push it up on the pavement myself and they are not, light car's really but no one helped me to push it up fully on the pavement.

Tried to restart it whilst it was on the pavement but it would not turn over, and it turned out that a belt had come off and basically destroyed the engine.

My hate though is that I did something to my jaw last night and don't know what but it hurt's like hell, and feel's like it is in 2 pieces on the left hand side of my face but I know I aint broke it as I can still speak and open my mouth although it is painful to do so.

Yep, iirc, if the cambelt comes off you basically need a rebuild or a new engine. Most cars need a cambelt tension check at some point to avoid that. My old Accord-R was scheduled at 67k miles.

did it again on the way home earlier, managed to get the fault codes up. but the description was a bit generic, but the school of thought is that it is prob the crank sensor. but could easily be the cam sensor, which would fit the the dying  - which iirc is responsible for send the signal to the ecu say fire in the fuel when the cam is tdc. in a way i hoped it was the cam sensor as that's the easiest to change as it's front top left of the block. either way gonna be the best part on another ton that i can't really afford.

never made it home till half 10ish last night, and i left her mums at half 6 (only 10mins down the road). gave a kick  but managed to keep the revs up and it going. got another 3ish miles down the express way and this time gave a hard kick and lost all power, left it 10mins and started but only got 100yds down the road before it did it again - so AA time (good job i renewed it yesterday morning  ;D. seems to think that it might be the cambelt has started to stretch and knocked the timing outon both the cam and crank sensors. so a new belt is going on tomorrow (due in 2000 miles anyway, thank god for the izuzu lump in it)

so god knows what it'll cost me in the end - the crank sensor cost me £65 part only.  >:(

well the car did indeed need a new belt (£140 just for the kit), when he had a look the belt was coated in oil from somewhere. cleaned out and checked, it wasn't the cam seals as they were nice and clean so the only other place was the rocker cover. so he's re-tightened that down and fitted the new kit.  found that the timing was out by 180°,  it had had a new belt in the past but whoever did it got the wrong screw hole for the pump. so that has all been sorted out to as well as fitting of that crank sensor.  all in all if you include the major service it had last week - week before if you include today it's cost me the best part of £640 in round figures.

£100 - service
£70 - crank sensor
£220 - supply and fit of cam kit and fit crank sensor
£250 - 2.5days wage lost as unable to get to work


i wold love to find the fecking idiot who did the work originally and ballsed it up. but a bit of a testament to the izuzu engines as i've had it 4 years and it's taken at least that long to show up. on the down side it looks like the a/c compressor maybe slowly on the way out as it's whining like a biatch.

well the car did indeed need a new belt (£140 just for the kit), when he had a look the belt was coated in oil from somewhere. cleaned out and checked, it wasn't the cam seals as they were nice and clean so the only other place was the rocker cover. so he's re-tightened that down and fitted the new kit.  found that the timing was out by 180°,  it had had a new belt in the past but whoever did it got the wrong screw hole for the pump. so that has all been sorted out to as well as fitting of that crank sensor.  all in all if you include the major service it had last week - week before if you include today it's cost me the best part of £640 in round figures.

£100 - service
£70 - crank sensor
£220 - supply and fit of cam kit and fit crank sensor
£250 - 2.5days wage lost as unable to get to work


i wold love to find the fecking idiot who did the work originally and ballsed it up. but a bit of a testament to the izuzu engines as i've had it 4 years and it's taken at least that long to show up. on the down side it looks like the a/c compressor maybe slowly on the way out as it's whining like a biatch.

Time to sell it me thinks.   If someone messed it up that badly, who knows what other hidden damage is going to come out of the woodwork.  Cut your losses before you risk throwing good money after bad.

So how the hell do you manage to get sunburnt, even through a tee shirt, when all you've done is spent a day sitting around an Egyptian Hotel's swimming pool seeking out every vestige of shade under umbrellas and the like.  I could have understood if I'd been out in the sun, but I was hiding from it.

Easily done. The kids got slightly sunburnt during the 1.5 hour speedboat transfer in the Maldives even though it was completely overcast.
Did you have a nice time?  :)

been waiting weeks for my bathroom to be finished but the guy who was supposed to come out and do the tiling cant do it coz the people who installed the shower messed it up and left a massive hole in the wall, so now im gonna have to wait months for my whole bathroom to be ripped out and redone properly. So now i get to yell at people (yeah!), like home estate agents who manage this property for employing cowboys

just had my gas and electric bill through, and its quite a big one, im not botherd about the electric side of it because of the lan so i knew that was going to be high, but i would love to know how the hell they work out the estimated gas bill

1/ 05/10/10 - 03/1/11 used 191 cubic metres
2/ 03/01/11 - 12/1/11 used 27 cubic metres
3/ 12/01/11 - 09/2/11 used 52 cubic metres
4/ 09/02/11 - 11/4/11 they have said the estimated usage is 233 CM's

how the hell have they figured that out, going by the the actual usage from Oct to Feb is 270 so average usage per month is 67.5 so how the hell have they come up with 233 for two months, what a god damb rip off.

when i checked my readings i only used 68 cm's over two months so they have over estimated by 165.

Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: Ste on 07 May 2011, 03:58: PM
givem them a ring dude with the correct reading and they'll send a new bill out thats correct. i'm not gonna go into how they work all the estimates out cos it will bore you to death lol

Post by: MovedGoalPosts on 17 May 2011, 04:15: PM
They'd have to fix it failry quickly.  It's a basic amenety required under tenancy law and given dilli's circumstances that would increase the prioritisation.

If there is no indication from the repairers by tommorrow morning as to when they'd be round to replace it then I'd be on the phone to the Housing Association for an update / chase.

Seem's you are having no luck with any of them, and I think your internet is going to be gone for another 2 week's as BT will no doubt say it's a Virgin issue and not a BT issue.

pos printers.......
I have a perfectly good old HP sat here that I can't use because HP won't write x64 drivers for it (let alone win7)
I have an epson sat here that has given up the ghost because it's 'print pads are full'.............and the utility I d/l'd to reset the counter in it won't work! So thats £25 to get it serviced at an approved center  >:(

Possibly cheaper too, My Epson costs best part of £50 for proper Epson cartridges and I can pick up a brand new one for about £30.

As for the HP can you not run it as a generic printer without the custom drivers? It worked with the 710c I used to use for photo printing.

Post by: SnAcKaTtAcK on 28 May 2011, 12:45: PM
I've been using Epsons for a few years now since R200 was out that could print discs. I have always used the Continuous ink systems where refill bottles cost around £15 for a set of 100ml ones which last for months. Always found them to be good from Inkexpress, and you can get the package from them of both the printer and the inks, which is what I have done, onto an SX415 at the mo which is a printer, scanner & photocopier.

It won't work. I'vbe got really good at forcing HP printers to work over the years ('cos they don't write drivers for x64 most of the time) but this one is proving to be a stubborn git.....

There is probably another hole in the roof.  Whoever invented Stonewold type tiles needed to be shot.  The roof has too shallow a pitch, was put together badly, and would have been better built if it had been flat rather than tiled.  Just need to find a few thousand pounds to get it sorted properly.

Bank's GRRRR

RBS Boss has admitted that Tax Payers money that iirc bailed them out from going under may have been paid to people as bonuses.

Sack him and make sure they get no bonus this year to cover for the stuff they shouldn't have got last year.

steam is a feckin arse, put new mobo in lastnight. went to start installing everything and  started off ok, then came steam. installed ok - but it saw this as a new pc and steam guard kicked in (only did because of the hassles that peeps have with hacked accounts). they are supposed to send an email in with a code that then authorises your pc on the account. well i got the mail and it was blank............how original, tried again and yet again another blank mail. so your account is safe cos they don't even send the unlock code  >:(

so now just waiting for slowoooooooooow steam support to respond to to my support ticket, so until then i can't play a damn thing.


an another note, i did a fresh install on one of the 1tb drives i got from damien at the lan. now like a div i forgot to rip my cd key for office from the old drive before replacing the mobo. the old drive is in still and attached - i can access the drive and some files blah blah. what i want to know is there a way that i can recover the key? as the usual key finders are completely useless and idea how to find/de-crypt from the registry.

Steam is fubar at the moment it's up and down like a whores draws.

I expect that is why you are getting the blank emails.


As for the office key, can you not just boot using the old drive and get the key that way?

Skip hire companies.
 I arranged for a skip to be delivered on Mon morning between 8-10. It didn't arrive. I phoned to be told that it had actually been booked for 12-3......whih I couldn't do due to a prior appointment. They said that I didn't have to be home to accept the skip anyway. I replied that it needed to be placed in a very specific place and since I now didn't trust them to to arrange a p*ss up in a brewery I wanted to cancel it.
Move on to next skip company......they delivered Tuesday AM at the correctish time.
Today I phone them up to get it collected.........."you did get this skip from us?"
wtf? I think........." no, I thought I'd just ring up any old skip co. and get my skip picked up!"......knobs!  >:(

if only he was a copper bud, he ran his own farming company - which is how he was able to get 6 tonnes of fertilizer for the bomb that was made. the copper bit was that he dressed as one to get people together prior to shooting them.

That's not good Scary.  Unfortunately agencies are only interested in their commission, and will do anything to earn it.  Whilst I'd be tempted to send a complaint in that they didn't do their own homework, are you likely to need the agency for other possible placements such that you shouldn't burn your bridges?

don't you just hate feckin etailers who say it may take up to a couple of hours to reply as they only have a mail ticket system  :td:.........................and do smeg all all day  >:(

ordered a replacement gpu block for the pos i have at the moment.  now the blocks for my card are becoming like the proverbial rocking horse crap.  so when i found one in stock......out came the card  :'(. anyways all good and sorted.... i thought.  money out the bank almost instant like...ok, check order progress and nothing - it's still in stock check.

that pissed me off as wanted it for this weekend to rebuild the loop.  back on track, following morning check and it's moved along and it's been dispatched (apparently) and got a tracking number. ok still might get it bearing in mind it's a 3-5 day delivery.........albeit it's only coming from urmston just up the 62. check today and it's the same fecking tracking message about it being shipped on wednesday.  so for the hell of it i phone the mail to have a pop and got a surprise..........................they tell me it's not even in the postal system yet WTF  >:(

so mail the etailer and state my unhappiness and ask out right if they had even bothered to send it,  and that if it isn't with me by monday (as being delivered to work) i want all charges refunded. well i mailed them at about 10am - and bearing in mind i don't think they are exactly what you'd called rushed off their feet...................i still hadn't had a reply by 4pm .....which is when they close till monday.

never had a problem with them before, but if i'm not furnished with a satisfactory answer then they go straight on the blacklist.........................like overcockers (not clockers, as just a bunch over over-hyped cocks). wouldn't mind, but these blocks have gone up in price with supply and it was the best part of £90 - but will be offset when i sell the other one.




rant for the day over....................................................








not quite








fucking old (and sometimes blonde) women drivers, stupid arse mothertrucking bitch who didn't see where she was going and nearly swiped the car......................................then had the gaul to take a parent and child space...............looking at her no way she had kids (none in the car anyway)........... looked more like an escapee from an oap home.  best bit was she put in a disabled badge..................way to make me see blood.  so after a few choice words  - she had a few to although a bit hard to understand, told her to do one.

I knew it was a mistake to upgrade to VM's 50 meg.  It's unusable most of the time.  Last night it took me half hour to get the not so superhub to make an internet conection, and that fell over for gaming use.  Today from lunchtime until now I've been unable to get on the net at all, and even now it's slower than a tortoise.  VM admit something is wrong with the network, but who knows what that means in terms of when they might decide to fix it.  Looks like I won't be gaming for a while.

I knew it was a mistake to upgrade to VM's 50 meg.  It's unusable most of the time.  Last night it took me half hour to get the not so superhub to make an internet conection, and that fell over for gaming use.  Today from lunchtime until now I've been unable to get on the net at all, and even now it's slower than a tortoise.  VM admit something is wrong with the network, but who knows what that means in terms of when they might decide to fix it.  Looks like I won't be gaming for a while.

Can you not use the cable forum contact system to make a complaint :)

What are they saying is wrong with the network? Ask what the remedy number is for this supposed fault and let me know.

No idea all they will say is it's a network fault.  I'll see what has happenned by Monday evening as I don't expect anyone is seriously going to look at it on a Sunday, and if it's still an issue then I'll start annoying people.

It's odd because now my speeds are absolutely fine.  And it's connecting OK, but the superhub's power levels are still very poor so something is amis.

As its QAM256 which should be 5-6dBmv up on QAM64 they may not be that far out Bill, but I've not played with a Superhub personally so I have no idea what the range of one is. I would be concerned about that SNR though and I'd like to know more about what the modem is reporting, dB what, dBm, dBmV or dBuV? Unless the network boys have been out noise busting that leg for weeks I can't see it being as good as 44dBmV which could make it a dBuV reading which if my dodgy maths is right means about -15dBmV and if that's the case then it could be better.

Rob, what's the cmts details?

RANT WARNING
the trainer i have is an absolute dip shit, i asked him a question to day because i couldnt find it on the system and his response was "i am not here to train you im here to point you in the right direction" i said ok can you point me to the right direction of the answer plz "its on the system somewere its up to you to find it" so i spend about 20 mins looking for it to turn around and one of the girls asked the same question as me and he gave her the answer, he really pisses me off he sits there does nothing ask him something he mumbles and walks out of the room.

Yesterday we asked him if we were alowed to take a call this week the trainer said yes, so today i took a call did really well, so i went and told him, he went nuts your not fully trained you shouldnt be taking calls.

the other people in the training group have had enough of him, he has more mood swings than a woman on her monthly's

this guy is an utter knob he hasnt a clue what he is doing were his first training group and it bloody shows, but threw it all i have held my tongue when all i have wanted to do is rip his scrawny freekin head off.

I am irritated wi myself, I finally got my CVI and had a long talk with my social worker yesterday afternoon who advised me as to what I am now entitled to which I wasn't before.

The thing is while I'm sure most of this would be most useful (higher rate DLA blue badge that kind of thing) I just don't know if i should claim any of these things I don't want to be seen as a sponger. Or more accurately more of a sponger than I already am.

Anyway I just wanted to vent.

It's getting a bit much again more tests etc all next week and still no answers, I thought I'd turned a corner at christmas.

And it looks like I won't be able to walk down the aisle after all as I am most likely going to be back in a cast for another six months on Wednesday.

So quite frankly grr to it all.


But looking on the bright side at least I just got over four days out of my htc wildfire before the battery died :) so I can moan more on the move.

Heres the thing,my internet doesnt seem much better now with BT infinity than it did with bog standard BB!! however the bill is a whole lot more expensive. I spoke to BT and they kindly told me that i am contracted for another 12 months,they could change me from option 2 to option 1 but that would take me back onto another 18 month contract!!!!! the other otion is to cancel the contract at a cost of £200. Buggers. any options guys or thoughts on what to do?? ??? ??? ???

Brake discs and pads, cam belt, tyres, MOT, oil change ........ 

Car is only 5 years old, 52,500 on the clock so it should be good for many more years.  It's just the price of labour these days is so silly.  the individual jobs aren't by themselves costly its the cumulative, it's all come at once.  Even the Espace I had a few years ago, used to cost me around a grand a year in maintenance (I didn't use it enough so things just seized up).

I suppose the problem is you buy new and loose money with depreciation, you buy a bit older with less depreciation but higher maintenance.

Which server and what was the players name?

If it was Black Op's can someone put the game that said player was kicked or banned in to there file share on Theater and I will look at it, if that player was cheating then the ban will stay but if they were not then the ban will be lifted if they were banned.

While we all have access to R-con for Black Op's and everyone has the abillity to ban people, at the moment I am the only one who can unban people which is why I would like to see the video.

what time was this last night Damien is going to look in to it now. This is why i rabbit it on about watching the video before making a decision to ban someone.

The action that pisses me of more is the constant spawn camping that goes on and the fact some seem to think its legitimate to do it, then you wonder why i am not playing as much when the fun as gone from the game.

I also know that sometimes there will be folk that are just plain cheats. so a little bit of commom sense should prevail, I think the guy in question was 29-20 or something like that, so no superstar.

Dealing with idiots in advertising..........& why is it that when you point out to them that they are idiots they put the phone down on you? ;)
.....all I said was the at she couldn't organise a p*ss up in a brewery  ;D
...........anyway, here is the email I sent her after she finally sent me an advertising proof, sadly not for my business but for some random dental surgery  :doh: :
Quote
Since you put the phone down on me after I'd expressed my deep dissatisfaction with the perplexing way your publication conducts (or attempts to ineptly conduct) it's advertising business I think I'd better put what I wanted to say next in writing.

Please make sure that the advert for bexleyheath chiropractic clinic, which I have never actually seen, isn't included in the london and thames express.

I am upset about losing the opportunity to advertise in your publication but since you haven't been able to provide me with a copy of my proposed advert in spite of having a week (and much daily prompting on my part) to do so you can understand my lack of confidence in your publications ability to deliver even a minimum level of service.
Your lack of knowledge about which proof you were actually meant to be sending me (in spite of speaking to me 2 or 3 times earlier today) and your rudeness in hanging up on me in the face of my valid comment has further increased that feeling.

It would seem that Photoshop (if my suspicions are correct) took over my screen settings. I had to go into my NVIDIA software to wrestle control of my screen back again. The only indication of the solution being there was that there was suddenly the option to use NVIDIA to control the screen settings( as opposed to some other unspecified software). There was nothing in the hardware screen settings that worked......tried all of those.
Thing is that the screen changed suddenly all on it's own......browsing the internet, I turned away, turned back and thought 'eh?' thats gone a bit dark!  :o

As Bop says some Steam based stuff will be ok as will some of the BF stuff, CoD 4 & 5 will need to have the profiles backed up and then restored though. Software is available to do that legitimately. Your other option is to use the relevant level hacks which are not quite as legit, they wont get you banned but you'll loose all of your challenges.

Once you start on the slope you have no real option but to see it to the bottom wherever it takes you :( As Bop said we've just got to deal with it until the world gets sick enough to do somthing about it and personally while I don't agree with a lot of the stuff shown on TV these days I'm not looking forward to things swinging the other way either.

Don't try installing Internet Explorer 8 if you'e put Windows XP Service Pack 3 on the bloody computer.  Even if it's otherwise a clean install.  Somehow it expects an update which you have to manually download and then it says you've already got it installed you you're stuck in a loop until you take SP3 off the bloody machine.  Of course taking SP3 off then buggers up all sorts of stuff so you end up wiping and reinstalling again - 5 PCs later .........

Tell me about it.  I'm still here.  Currently now have 2 PCs with a stuck install of XP - been saying 35 minutes for the last hour (and yes I've tried restarting them), and another that kept blue screening.

At this rate with the office dead I'm going to be here all night :cry:  :depressed: :tired:

Once I dug out her modem I was surprised to see a Terayon one.

I have to wonder if that is what the problem is.  It was very intermittent while I was there - apparently India told her it was all ok.

A modem that's best part of 10 years old, that wasn't fully DOCCIS2 compliant and that had a max speed of 25M yep its bound to be ok.

OK, in brief.............moans are thus

3 dongle on a pc, shit, why do I say this, next door and next door but one ( caravans as well ) have the same dongle but they have Mac, they both get to  surf seamlessly, getting at least 2.5 mb up and down, I can't touch that :(

Look's like my 2tb drive is failing or going to soon, keep's getting slowed right down for some reason.

Speed's are dropping down to like 2Mb when copying from it and to it from any drive.

Tried to find a Samsung drive checker but, it won't work on my pc for some reason won't even let me install it.

Will just have to see how it goes.
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: madonion_uk on 22 January 2012, 06:23: PM
ouch!
if you have HDTune then you can look at the s.m.a.r.t data on the drive, which should give some indication to failure.
I've got a 2TB WD green that slowed down a lot during files transfers, and then next time I rebooted my pc, it showed up as unformatted  >:(
running a s.m.a.r.t check, turns out the drive developed bad sectors and have 'pending reallocated sectors' (both are imminent failure attributes)
have done a scan using a trial version of a file recovery program, and the files seem to be there, but as it's  trial software I can't recover them...  :(
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: damien c on 22 January 2012, 06:26: PM
Well been running the windows drive checker now since around 12'ish and told it to scan and attempt to fix bad sectors and it's nearly done now probably about another 10 mins or so.

Lucky I have a 1tb and 150gb drive as well as my ssd so not short as such on space but could have done without this drive playing up.

left work just before midnight to come home, normally takes me 25 minutes at that time of night. i got in at 0155 due to a crash just after the exit slip road  junction onto the motorway. hit traffic just after the previous exit so sat in traffic for an hour to the next exit as motorway was shut and had to travel the remaining 12 miles home on slow back roads! to top it all off i'm just leaving for work again.

Inevitably a bit of manipulation wakes things up and makes it feel worse as the body tries to readjust to normality so hopefully things will be a bit easier tommorrow.  Otherwise the survey I'm doing is going to be a bit of a challenge.

The amount of hassle I have had with the job centre this morning about getting my paperwork in Braille or CD....

They seem to think providing my information in an accessible format for me is somehow a voluntary thing.

Their suggestion was to get someone to read it to me as they are finding it 'difficult' to sort it out for me.

What specs are you trying to resurrect?  Before you spend money on one bit which might or might not be the issue, you want to know that the whole thing is capable of doing what you need it to.

Post by: zingle on 31 March 2012, 07:31: PM
its a Q6600 so its more than capable. He has mentioned needing a PSU and a GFX which both will be able to move to another pc later anyway

I had a Q6600, it may have been the motherboard creating the bottleneck, but I was struggling to get a reasonable gameplay with BF3.  Quite a lot of graphics lag with even a single 5770 and Crossfired it became unplayable.
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: zingle on 31 March 2012, 09:54: PM
plenty of tweaks in the settings that would have made it playable or just play it at a lower resolution and the game would have been playable and still would have looked good. BF3 struggled with my 5870 at a res of 5760:1080

You don't have to let them cast it if you don't want it done. It's your body. You can decline treatment.
Besides, if it's your toe, they don't tend to cast it. Different if it's a bone in your foot....
Definitely go and get an x-ray though!

Same as last time - they have taken money off my Incapacity benefit.  But I paid what I owed just after christmas.

They owe me £194 now as they've done it twice.

Trouble is I can't pay all my bills now and all I got from them last time was it takes six weeks to sort a refund out. They assured me it wouldn't happen again.

I'm going to call them when they open and see what they say this time.

I feel bad enough having to claim it as it is - now it feels like I'm having to 'beg' them to get it right.  Natalie moving in was great for sure but her wages only cover rent and tax really.

According to VW, my front suspension bushes are covered by extended warranty, but my cup holder isn't.   The bushes are about £300 fitted so ain't complaining, but the cup holder on the dash broke - not through wear and tear.

The laughable thing is they wanted £45 for the new one and another £35 plus VAT to fit it.   I told them not to bother.

Just come across the most advanced malware I have ever seen

Firstly its a crypto virus encrypting the whole hard drive. It blocks access to the OS in the usual scareware way by locking explorer down .

So normally you run scans in safe mode you say well this is where is really gets clever try to access safe mode in any way causes a BSOD so no way of access that way

Removed hard drive and installed in my machine and it is indeed encrypted it sees the space is taken but the drive looks empty.

In its own machine you can see the files but they are all locked. Copy and paste and yes all encrypted

Only option left is a scan from a live XP cd nightmare

Its a long shot but year or so ago one of my mates lads encrypted his drive, (claims it wasn't to stop his mum knowing he was looking at pron but I'm not convinced ;) he chose such a clever password that he couldn't remember it next time he logged on so ended up locking the bloody thing down.

Eventually in desperation I copied the entire drive onto a spare drive and reformatted the original, I then ran an old DOS recovery program across it, which took several hours but i was able to to get most of his music, photos and enough of some word Docs for him to be able to rewrite the missing bits.

I'm guessing it was because the program didn't really encrypt the actual data just the headers which is what it sounds like this malware has done.

Suicidal Fish.   I wondered what the stink was coming from my garden, as they must have been rotting on the grass in the nice hot sun for a few hours having jumped out of the pond :(

Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: MovedGoalPosts on 28 May 2012, 09:39: PM
Too many.  I've lost four big fish in close succession.  Couple that jumped and a couple just floated to the top.  The sudden hot weather will have raised water temps a lot which must have cause a bit of unexpected stress.

Would cost over a grand to replace fish of that size :(

Trouble is a few of the bigguns were getting too big for the pond.  I lost a couple over winter combined with a couple last year only leave 3 biggish, foot long ones, and a couple of tidllers :(  Might have to have a rethink if this continues over pond redesign before I contemplate any restocking.

Sorry about that mate, Its quite depressing when the buggers suicide like that.

I did have a Silver Shark though that I estimate lasted best part of 3 hours out of the tank and then still lived another 8 or 9 months before being killed in an unexplained ammonia spike.

I picked it up to put it in the bin expecting it to be dead and the bloody thing jumped out of my hand back onto the floor so I just put it back into the tank expecting it to croak but oh no it was chasing the other fish around quite happily again within a couple of minutes

if you have a pond and suicidal fish why not just put a frame over it with chicken wire? the fish jump up hit the wire fall back in the water simples

Very easy to say after the event Zing.  And I'd need a pretty big frame.
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: Dutchie on 30 May 2012, 09:57: AM
it has to do with the warm weather that we have had and lack of oxygen in the water at least that is what my local news has said with a load of dead fish in the waters around here so pump more water in the tanks
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: MovedGoalPosts on 30 May 2012, 10:18: AM
Yep the rise in temperature, especially in a relatively small mass of water will have been quite swift as we went from fairly mediocre temperatures and amounts of sunlight, to hot fully sunny weather in the space of a couple of days.  In turn that lead to a bit of an algae bloom in my pond, which will have reduced oxygen, so the water quality would have gone down hill fast.  Trying to get it back into balance but the damage is done :(

or just build a 45 degree guard around the pool to make it less likely to clear it? How big is it then dude post us a pic :-)

Post by: MovedGoalPosts on 30 May 2012, 04:20: PM
Much smaller than that Dutchie, although a 4 year old kid did try and use it as a swimming pool a few years ago.  :(

It's L shaped, about 3-4' deep (varies) and around 12' x 12' less 6'x7'  I'd like to make it a bit deeper, but there is a drain soakaway under part of it, as well as increase the area a bit.  But that will involve a lot of digging and re-landscaping, which I'm not in any rush to embark upon.

Post by: Stu038 on 31 May 2012, 07:19: PM
Your using a mechanical filter too aren't you iirc ?

Have you considered going down the biological route with a decent sized sump and everything? they can do quite a bit of  oxygenating the water if set up correctly.

A chap I used to work with built his own a few years back. It cost him half a pallet of bricks, some mortar, a couple of metres of pipe work, some gravel and a few plants. He then used his existing filter just as a pump. He reckoned that his fish had never been happier and it saved him money cos the pump did less work than it had as a filter so cost less to run. He claimed that it took him a year or so to break even. Alot less hassle to keep clean and he even recouped some of the cost of replacement gravel by selling some of it on to neighbours to put in the bottom of plant pots, being rich in nitrates it was a sort of built in fertiliser.

Well, I have to go up to Scotland tonight to work on-site until the end of the week. Flying from Cardiff tonight at 20:30 after doing a day's work and will get back home on Friday night around 21:30. This comes after a week of long hours and working on the weekend as well - so I should be totally knackered by Wednesday - the buggers love to squeeze as much work out of me as they can when I'm on site, and I never sleep too well in hotels.

Hopefully the hotel will have free internet so I can at least have a few games of BF3 in the evenings.

You will be lucky, BOP tried that a while ago but struggled with it.

I know most hotels only have a 10Mb connection split between there reception and guests, some of them may have 100Mb but they limit it right down for the guests.

Just arrived at the hotel - wireless is free in the rooms and just managed to connect to a BF3 server. Ping is hovering around 60ms, but it's late now and not many will be on the network.
I will try again tomorrow at about 7PM and see if it's any good - but I suspect it won't be - but I may be pleasantly surprised.

People that insist on deleting the recovery partitions off laptops without making the back up discs  >:(

Trying to sort a laptop out for a lad at work and they have deleted the recovery partition and not made the back up disc's, then to top it all off the laptop is running vista basic which I cannot find anywhere on the net.

Looked on Toshibas site and they want £30 for the discs.

Luckily I have found the disc from my dads old Toshiba laptop, and it appears to be working in restoring windows but I will hopefully just have to download the drivers of the Toshiba site.

Yep - tried to play earlier this evening and although the server reported a ping of 50 before connecting, when connected I got the 'Broken Connection' icon in the top right and a ping of 1495 - is that a record? lol :D

IIRC with new Nvidia card's you cannot run 2 monitors on the same card whilst trying to game on just 1 of them but I may be wrong.

Have you checked that the heatsink etc is all fitted properly, or been in to the bios straight after it turns off and looked at the cpu/mobo temps?

Might be worth downloading MSI Afterburner and setting up the OSD for it, to show what temp your graphics card is getting to whilst gaming.

If you need any help setting it up let me know and I will run you through it as I use it all the time.

You could also download HWMonitor and run OCCT or Prime95 to test the temp's for the cpu, then also run the GPU test within OCCT to see what temp that get's to.

I'm not sure about that as a cheque from HMRC is as good as cash. ie it won't bounce........that means that the bank should let you draw on those uncleared funds. Go to the branch and chat to a manager.

Any amount over £2000 going into a personal account is checked for money laundering and other crime type stuff. Personally I think it's just an excuse used by banks who are paying lip service to legal compliance guidelines.

If it was £200,000 they'd be falling over themselves to be as helpful as possible, which seems counter-intuitive to the above statement, but shows how greed is a driving factor in human behaviour.

Was supposed to fly back home from Edinburgh at 18:25 yesterday evening - poxy flight was delayed due to 'technical' issues (perhaps Rammy had been working on it ? :D) Anyway, the lies started floating across the tannoy at 18:00 the flight was delayed until 18:50 (not too bad - only 25 minutes late), at 18:15 we were told the gate number for boarding, at 18:40 the gate was closed and a new estimated departure time of 19:30 displayed on the screens. OK, another 40 minutes to wait. 19:00 we are given a new gate for boarding so everyone shuffles down to the new gate, 19:10 that gate is closed and we are given a new departure time of 20:00. 19:30 we get more lies across the tannoy telling us that the flight operator is very sorry for the delays etc etc, and more information will be available at 20:00 (at least they weren't saying we'd be leaving at 20:00) So, 20:15 we get a new message telling us they are all very sorry and we will be leaving at 20:45.
We didn't start boarding until 20:50 and the baggage people were late bringing the bags for the cargo hold so we didn't actually leave until 21:30. We landed in Cardiff at 22:45, and then there was a problem getting the baggage carousel working. Eventually got out of Cardiff airport at 23:15, then had to drive 60 miles home.
The only good thing is that at that time of night the roads are quiet so I could leather it a bit getting home - got home at 00:15. I had planned to get myself a chinese takeaway on my way home - but by the time I got there it was closed (f*****g boo!), I should have been home chilling out, eating a nice chicken curry and getting ready for FNG by 20:30 - but it was not to be.
I even missed the jubilympics torchy dance thing - which I have heard was pretty good.

Hehehe, no, but, I did get a small electric shock off my keyboard which caused me to bash my hand against the wall so I couldn't finish my work because I was in too much pain to type (I've used that one before - but it's one that can only be used once) - and in this case it didn't happen - I just wanted to share a good excuse with you guys :D

I have got myself a new keyboard though - Microsoft Sidewinder X4 (no detachable bits, but has the macro keys) - I'm not too keen on the macro keys on the left hand side as I am used to going to the far left for Esc, Ctrl & Shift and the like - but I am getting used to it, and the keys themselves are lovely to work with, both for gaming and for work.

I assume you are metered.  Assuming that is the case, check there is no leak between your flat and the meter.  Simply make sure all taps in the flat are off and no toilet cisterns are still filling, then get someone to check if the meter dial is turning. You can confirm it's your meter by seeing if the dial starts turning when you run your kitchen tap.

in teamspeak go to tools and settings, under playback make sure the right device is selected, lot of motherboards will show 2 different outputs at least, or see if there is option for default, also in your windows sound settings ensure you don't have a seperate output selected for communicatoin.

Although I did have good news today (in the happy thoughts thread) - I also had a bit of an /incidednt/ while waiting for hospital transport home.

Let me set the scene.....

I'm sitting in the waiting room. Conversation is going on round me as you'd expect.

The two 'ladies' opposite however are loudly moaning about all and sundry from their 'slag' daughters to the 'slag' receptionist and staff who bore their brunt because they'd had the nerve to make them wait half an hour for their appointment. At this point all went quiet as they were jabbing at their phones...

Anyway as I'm waiting I made the mistake of getting a text message and an email on my phone.

Wow - you'd think I'd killed a kitten or something, the abuse I got was colourful to say the least.

What set them off? My phone reads out said messages as I can't see it.

Luckily for them my transport turned up at this point as I just didn't feel like trying to explain why my phone speaks.

Delivery companies  >:(

Ordered my phone yesterday and it's out for delivery today, but the delivery company decided to say that it would be delivered between 7:30am and 9:00pm.

Had a text with a phone number to speak to the actual person delivering it, only to find out that it won't be delivered till gone 8pm tonight at work because she has been given 750 parcels to deliver within a 100 mile radius of where she lives.

Hate delivery companies.

Peter just left a broken glass deliberately in place knowing that I couldn't see it broken so that I'd cut my hand open when I reached for it :(

What the hell??!!

Luckily Natalie saw it before I went to use it.

She doesn't want to leave me alone with him now and I had a bugger of a time getting her to go to work.

Somtimes Thannis does similar things. While its deliberate acts of cruelty or violence its not malicous its just to see what would happen, a part of the autisism is a detachment from cause and effect and the responsibility.

An example that happend just the other day though fortunatly no where near as severe was that his phone went flat. When advised that erhaps if he'd put it on charge it would't have gone flat the response was that it couldnt be his fault becuase he'd put it on charge the day before, the simple fact that he'd spent a couple of hours in the car playing games on it didnt mean it was his fault, it couldn't have been becuase he had put it on charge. This minor little thing ended up as a major family argument where he felt everyone was blaming him for somthing that wasn't his fault, simply becuase he doesn't get the the link.

I suspect that Peters action was the same, an unconcious "I wonder what would happen if I put this here" without the ability to link in that you cutting your hand would be a bad thing, whereas he would never come up to you with a piece of broken glass and deliberatly cut your hand becuase he "knows" that would cause you pain and distress.

So, the first patio slab to be lifted by the builders revealed a manhole cover & drain......right where the far end of our new extensions foundations need to be dug......I would have thought the architects would have made themselves aware of it's presence  >:(
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: MovedGoalPosts on 17 August 2012, 09:27: AM
If it's covered over, especially if the slab was cemented down, they wouldn't know exactly where it is, but there should be a suspicion that drains exist in an area, and might need to be traced.

Wrong attitude mate.

You should be extending to bring the cover inside and getting the architects to pay for it
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: MovedGoalPosts on 17 August 2012, 07:32: PM
Bringing an inspection cover inside a building is generally frowned upon and to be avoided when possible.

The real problem though might not be that there is an inspection cover, it's the actual alignment (direction & position) of all the drains going into the chamber.  If that is along the same alignment as the foundations, one is stuffed.  If it crosses the foundations, it's possible to "bridge" over, but that is more of a challenge if there is an inspection chamber needed.  If this drain serves more than one property, building over may well be a nono and you definitely wouldn't want a drain access inside the property.

Making the extension bigger to extend past the drain may not actually be buildable.  OK so there are added costs for bigger brickwork areas, etc, but does the roof alignment work and can you actually get timbers and steel for joists and beams that are big enough for any increased spans and would they still fit with enough clearances?  And then there is the vexed question of Planning Consent and any larger extension is likely to need an amended application.

Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: Ramrod on 17 August 2012, 08:32: PM
We're going 50-60 cm bigger as the alignment of the drain doesn't really allow for a shorter extension. This means that we either need planning permission or amenable neighbours. I went for option 2.....
Explained everything to the neighbours & they are ok with it.
The inspection hatch will be outside the structure but the pipe will run under the structure......

Richard,


I'm getting irritated.


Whilst this was unforeseen, it wouldn't have happened if due diligence had been carried out.


At the risk of telling you your job, a house obviously has provision for sewerage and those drains have to run somewhere. They can either run along the front or the back of the property so there is a 50% chance they might be running somewhere in the vicinity of our proposed extension. In addition, the houses in our road are built on a hillside and their position makes it unlikely that the sewerage would be at the front as this would have meant a greater depth to dig for the original builders.
Thus, in hindsight the drains were very likely to be at the back. I feel both yourselves and the surveyor should have at least considered the possibility of this occurrence (this is after all what you are trained to do) and sought out the appropriate drawings to check. My builders inform me that they are available online for £50.


I feel that you are fobbing me off with your last email and that it is unfair for you to expect me or my builders to deal with building control to sort out a mistake that you have made.
In addition, if revised plans are required, I feel that they should be provided free of charge since I have already paid you for drawings which are essentially ornamental if new ones are needed.

I only drive back and forth to work (10 miles each way) with the odd trip up to Cardiff (50 miles up, 50 miles back) once every few months. I do about 12000 miles a year.

Crikey! I am only on my second set of front tyres (3 months old) and still on my original back tyres. The cars done just over 30k and you know what I drive & how I like to drive it!  :o

You have decent roads up your way though.
Some of the roads I drive on every day are covered by sea water during high tides (about 10-16 times a month) so they are little more than a series of potholes held together by slivers or tarmac :)

I have actually driven my little car all the way to Scotland and back, but never again!

I used to drive to the Midlands quite often a few years back, and to London too.
The drive to the LAN was just about OK (250ish miles?), the drive home was far more challenging having only had 4 hours sleep on the Friday night and 4 hours on the Saturday night - IIRC myself, Scary and Ste were having a cigarette out the back on Saturday morning and the sun was coming up, so I thought it must be time for bed. I was woken at about 8AM as Thannis wanted to get on with gaming and I was sleeping in the study. I should have taken a nap in the afternoon :D

And apologies to Dilli, who must have thought I was a right ignorant git - due to a connection drop out, I only knew you were on TS when you signed out - I saw you had been signed in between 8:40 and 9:00, but I didn't know, and I couldn't hear anything coming through TS.

Tip for everyone, if your internet connection drops out, restart teamspeak because it probably won't work properly after an outage.

Anyway, no crashes tonight - too many connection drop outs and timeout kicks.

Yeah, I'd installed the 32 bit version in the hope it would play nicely with BF3 (which is also a 32 bit app) - I know from my software development that 32 bit and 64 bit applications do not always work well together. Looks like the 32 bit version of teamspeak does not work well at all on my 64 bit windows - so back to the drawing board on that.

I had also fiddled with my microphone settings in an effort to disable the poxy built-in microphone (which I think is the main culprit of echoing), last time I tried it, it went nuts - but I think I've got it sorted now.

Put all that together with regular connection drop-outs last night, and there you have it.

I still think your issue is down to a unstable overclock.

Check your bios and save the settings to a profile within the bios, then rest all the overclock settings back to normal stock settings and try that.

If that works get in touch with the company who sold you the bundle then, get it swapped for a Sandy Bridge bundle and not Ivy Bridge because there will only be around 5%-10% in performance drop when doing video work etc, but atleast you will know it's not causing a issue by being unstable.

If you remember I got you to run a stress test on the cpu and it failed within a few minutes when infact it should have ran for well over 24 hours.

enter bios most likely in tool you will be able to save your OC profile, Who OCed your system most likely would have done this already.

Then just load bios defaults , Nothing complicated


Nice to see you finally understand the importance of proper stress testing Damien :-)

With Ivy Bridge you need to run for atleast 12 hours, but people recommend 24 hours due to temperatures.

With Sandy Bridge you can get away with 8 hours to 12 hours.

I am still trying to figure out what causes mine to crash, but I updated the bios on mine last night and it now seems allot more stable.


Klins,

What you need to do is let me know which motherboard you have so that I can see how they save the profiles as each one is slightly different.

Once I know that I will get a little step by step guide put together for you.

Short TV series  >:(

Just been looking at a few things, and cannot believe how short TV series are now.

Dr Who series 7 was only 5 episodes long.

Contiuum Series 1 was only 10 episodes long.

Falling Skies Series 2 I think was only 8 or 10 episodes long.

True Blood Series 1-5 only around 10 episodes long per series.

Rumours are The Walking Dead Series 3 is only going to be around 8 or 10 episodes long.

What ever happened to a series having around 24-26 episodes, and building up to a big finally with action inbetween rather than being boring all the way through the series up to the final episode and then being really good, only to have a message of continued in X months time with the next series.

Really annoying.

And in other news air con in the office was on this morning and made the office like a oven, and now that the office has warmed up it is still on even though the sun is shining outside and getting warm outside.

I think shorter is better tbh.  You get a more concise story and they cut out some padding.
I loved Lost but the fact that each series was over 20 episodes long meant that it just had so much fat in it from different and random stories.  It could have  been one of the best TV series ever if it had been a short, lean story of say 12 episodes in 4 series.  Job done.

You do know that its a load of bollox about antibiotics and alcohol don't you?

There's two prescribed in this country Metronazole and Tinidazole <sp> where you may get the side effects of Headaches, nausea, and low blood pressure if you drink. Theres a couple of others that alcohol worsens the side effects makes you sleepier or dizzier but for most of em all alcohol does is flush em out of your system quicker because it makes you pee and crap more.

Its just easier for medical professionals to tell you not to drink with all of em rather than actually understand fully the drug they're prescribing you.

When you realise that it's leaking because the joint is at a low point (very) in the guttering, because the numpty who put it up first time round didn't use a level (guess who the numpty is?) so you need to take most guttering down to realign it properly .....

Meanwhile it's getting cold in my house as I've finally decided to replace that bathroom radiator that sprung a leak last year, but new radiators are different sizes to old ones, so that means plumbing alterations, means time to get the blowtorch out  :scared:

Unfortunately (for some), my house survived the blowtorch use.  I gave it a number of attempts since I proved fairly inept at making watertight joints, even with solder ring fittings :doh:

Only problem now is that my body has rejected me.  Virtually everything aches.  Put's you off doing DIY, which means my house will remain a building site for years to come :erm:

Well my motherboard has just gone bang  >:(

Just installed COD 4 and was playing it for around 5 minutes when my pc just turned off, then wouldn't turn back on.

Tried the usual things and nothing, so took the back panel of the case to find that some of the chips behind the CPU socket have blown clean off the board.

It potentially has taken the cpu out as well, but cannot test that as I don't want it blowing my dads board.

Luckily it looks like my GTX 680 is fine, as it's my dads pc now and seems to be working fine.

Well I will be posting etc but I will be offline from gaming till atleast march next year, as I now need a new board and chip and with my birthday coming up and also Xmas all my money is spoken for, for the next few months.

I got it in March this year but, because it has scratches on the board I would have to pay to have it repaired at a cost of around £90 for a new CPU socket and shipping.

Then even if I was to get that sorted, I could put my chip in the board and it could blow the board as I don't know what has happened to the chip as it may, be ok or it may have blown as well and I just don't fancy taking the risk.

Also when I took the board out of the last case one of the screws was stuck and caused the board to bend as the screw wouldn't come out of the motherboard standoff so, I had a nightmare of a time to get the board out of the case and in to the new case.

I will just wait till I have the money for a new board and chip, and then get it sorted but it's going to cost me around £360 to £450 dependent on why I buy from and what I buy.

That's crap news Damien, but you'd had suspicions that the board was playing up due to the physical damage to it.  But to be without gaming for nearly 6 months.  Nooooooooo.  It must be worth a gamble that the CPU would be OK, and just get a really cheap motherboard that would suit it's socket type?

I really don't want to take the risk to be honest, which is why I have told me dad not to test my chip.

Even if I was to buy a cheap board it would still cost around £80 for it and I really don't have the money to waste on buying a cheap board only to find the chip has blown, or for it to blow the new board to only then have to spend yet more money on another new board and chip anyway, when I might as well just buy a new board and chip and save time and money.

To be honest mate it's not worth the risk.

Just put my dad's graphics card in my grandads pc, and my dad can have my GTX 680 as it's going to take till March to get back up and running so I don't see the point in the hardware being waster.

Put the ram out of mine in my dads as well to test it, and it seems to be working so will leave it in there.

Will probably sell off what I have left now and try to save the money to add to the funds for March or just keep it all not sure yet.

Just put a price check thread up on Bit-Tech to see how much I can get for some things I have here that I don't need now.

Add all the money up ready for March and then just build a full new pc.

Well I have sold my phone, which gives me £230 towards the rebuild cost.

Case is up for sale for £100
Monitor for £140
Res & Pump £60
Waterblock £40

Considering selling the Nexus 7 tablet as well on Ebay for £130-£140.

Hopefully if I get all the prices I want for everything that would give me a total of £570, and then £710 if I sell the Nexus as well.

All that would be given to my sister to look after plus money that she owes me, and what ever money I can afford to add to it out of my wages each month until the end of March.

Hoping to try and reach atleast £2000 for a full rebuild.

It's the 8Gb model, paid £136.01 on Ebay for it and £8 for the case that has a Keyboard built in to it.

To be honest I don't know if I will sell it, but if I do it will be on Ebay because of the usefull "no returns accepted" simply because it saves me any hassle.

Not got any interest in any of the other bit's, may throw them on Ebay over the weekend and see what happens.

Just priced up some bit's incase I keep the case etc and it came out at a whopping £2300 for board, chip, ram and 2 pre-watercooled graphics cards.

Drop the cards to air cooled and it drops £400 of the price and if I go for Ivy Bridge rather than Sandy Bridge E it drops another £300 or so off the price.

Got to a tight spot in one of the narrow lanes on my route and had to reverse - the guy behind me was right up my trumpet, and I put the car into reverse only for my foot to slip off the clutch and I hit him. Only a minor bumper scrape, but now all the hassle of dealing with the poxy insurance....

On the plus side - nobody was hurt or injured - which is a good thing.

Oh yes.....yes they can......they can indeed!
One time we were selling a house in Chelmsford. We are living in SE London at the time.
We have left the keys with the estate agents and they are obviously to market the property.......
The weeks go by, then a couple of months, no interest reported back to us.......strange (it's a well located property).
I ring up the agency,  pose as a buyer and describe my property to them as what I'm looking for.......and they tell me that they don't have anything like that at the moment.............Me: "well, either you are lying to me or you're incompetent, 'cos I'm selling a property exactly like the one I've just described, through your branch!!" :mad:

Stupid decisions at work  >:(

Planned a job for a customer to swap out the equipment because it's easier, faster and cheaper than doing it the way that someone in sales had processed it.

Then this morning I get told we cannot do it the way I planned it because it will cost more than actually providing a whole new circuit in to the site.

The way I planned it will cost £300, which has been inflated to £600 from somewhere which I cannot understand.

They now want me to plan it for the same £300 cost's but also because of the way they want me to plan it, it is now going to have a further £1000 added on to the cost's because it means we need to get splicing and cable pulling done.
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: Stormpr00ter on 16 January 2013, 10:02: AM
I hear you.

One of our customers has a new 'projects manager' and she is out to make a name for herself. She is attempting to change the way we have worked successfully to suit her vision. She wants to micro-manage all aspects of software development but doesn't know one end of a database for the other or anything about software development.

Anyway, everything is now taking twice as long (and costing them twice as much) as I have to spend much more of my times listening on conference calls to focus group and management meetings which have no bearing on what I do, other than to stop it happening. But she is happy because she has nicely coloured XL files with lists of work not yet done detailed, and they are not done because I am spending too much time not working on them! And then I get grilled as to why things are not complete  >:(

Still, you gotta laugh  :D

I don't mind going the dentist as long as you get a decent one.

4 years I was telling my old dentist that my wisdom teeth needed to be removed on one side of my mouth, and for 4 years she refused but I couldn't be bothered to see another dentist and then in the end I saw a different dentist because she was off on holiday, and he said that they needed to be removed ASAP and booked me in for the removal later on that day.

He asked me why they hadn't been removed so I told him the whole story about getting infection after infection etc etc and he was shocked and did the removal for free, and then asked me to put a complaint in about it which I did and now I don't see her.

Have you tried SFC /Scannow or system recovery

and now to yet again repeat myself . When you got your system up and running take some kind of bloody recovery image whether you use Norton, windows own or true image it saves ages. Anyone who does not and uses a pc a lot is a fecking idiot

I don't use Images of fresh install's due to the small amount of time it takes me to do a reinstall, everything is on a external HDD such as games and app's, and windows is on a USB 3.0 Pen Drive takes around 5 minutes to install windows and then games take a few minutes each, the longest part is the Windows updates.

I think it takes my system about 10 minutes to recover the whole OS everything with saved games all game data user data and everything that was there on a stable system . While I am recovering I often find the time saved running installers give sme time to go have a dump or cook tea. My way is the efficient way as all I have to do is boot from my true image recover and set it going.lol :)

My way is the efficient way as all I have to do is boot from my true image recover and set it going.lol :)

Most times with me being a bit of a toker I tend to forget to back up something like new favs or something similar and end up kicking myself after . I think that's why I prefer my way tbh

People that insist on telling you how to get to a building when you have already told them you no the way there.

Got a job to do at 1 of the buildings at Warrington Hospital, and all I was doing was calling to say what time I would be there and the guy insisted on telling me which building it is and how to get there from various different motorways exits etc.

I'm going to the Norton Canes Motorway Services on the M6 toll tomorrow at 11:30 AM.
A lot of you guys have a lot of experience on our glorious motorways.......From Tonbridge, would you go M25-->M40-->M42-->M6 toll........or would you favour the M1-->M6 approach?
(I'm thinking the former)
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: MovedGoalPosts on 29 January 2013, 01:57: PM
M40 is usually, not always, the quieter route.  I suppose it depends on which way you are going round the M25.

I do hope you aren't starting some new weird service station hobby.

I'm going south round the M25 (seems best) and it's to take the doggy back. They are coming down from Bolton and we're meeting there.

Well looks like the bubble might be about to burst work-wise, I'll try and be brief .............. the guy I do a lot of subbing to has been subbing to a new guy with the 'promise' of lots of work, I had the 'fortune' of spending a week with this guy showing him and his guys how we do the job, I was privy to a lot of his phone call conversations as well, bells started ringing, and my spidey sense was tingling, I told my guy there was a rabbit off and not to trust him, so a few weeks and jobs down the line, my guy is down 40K ( pending ) and we're not working until at least Friday night. Seems / looks like I may have been right in that we've shown his guys how to do the job ( most of the basics ) and now they're trying to do it for themselves, badly.

Hey ho, we'll see what happens, but I think I'm looking for another start somewhere, phone calls looming :D

Which explains why the site took too long for you to order it in the first place, it was dying.

And you failed with the insult.  Surely you want to poke them with the deep heat smeared cocktail sticks?

Several schoolboy errors in that site.

1. Object reference exception - developer should be slapped for not checking for NULL values
2. Not handling the exception gracefully - i.e. (we're sorry, something has gone wrong please try again later)
3. Showing you the debugging stack trace for the exception

I'd sack the developer on the spot - no messing about, you can't do that sort of thing on a public commercial web site and expect to get away with it. I'd recommend avoiding that site in future.
Title: Re: Pet Moans and Hates : The Next Generation.
Post by: dilli-theclaw on 31 January 2013, 12:55: PM
Well in future I'll look it up on there and just phone them up to order and tell 'em I don't have an internet connection.

The site has always been slow but it was winding me up with the constant odd errors I was experiencing today (Not just the one I posted).  It took me 20 mins to find out where to change my delivery address.... I went through five steps to change it THEN it deceided I was no longer logged in so I should log in to continue.  But I had to reload the page from start as there was no way to login from where it left me.

Useless.

Anyway I've now told them what I think of their site. I called the membership line as I don't think an email would get through ;)

Hey Dilli,

You may need to close steam, delete the AppCache folder and restart steam to get the game to work - I had to do it so it would properly update and run.

We have a Whippet/Sheepdog cross - you will not tire it out. I take ours down the beach and whack a tennis ball with a tennis racket for her - usually about 100 yards, she can do it all day no problem, and is very fast.

They're well into anything that's small and moves fast  so as Storm suggests you'll get bored before the dog does ;)

Ours is extremely timid though so she doesn't get off the lead often because if anything startles her then she's off which is ok if your just down the road from home because she'll be waiting at the front door when you get back, anywhere else though is a bit dodgy as like most dogs (and kids) she's no road sense :(

My wife & daughter tend to have a high attrition rate with laptop power supplies. They plug them in and then pull the laptop around and wonder why the power connector breaks. They go through about 2 each, every year - much to my annoyance, as my son and I have never broken one.

Grrrrrr.......finally gave in and bought Sam Sims 3 through Steam.
First off it won't run, says  "reinstall game", so I do. Still won't run.
Googling shows a variety of fixes, non of which work.
Some educated guessing & faffing around + reinstalling again gets the game working.
Then, once you want to play, you have to type in the product key......which I do to find that EA thinks the key isn't valid!!
13 minutes and counting listening to crappy music on the EA helpline so far  >:(

My wife came back from the doctor yesterday with a bit of worrying news. She has a fatty lump on her back which has grown a bit in the last year or so. So she has been referred to the hospital for surgery to remove it.

Probably nothing too much to worry about, but she is quite frightened and I am quite worried about her. So I'll be doing the supportive husband thing quite a bit during the next few weeks & months.

Hopefully everything will be OK.

Hope it all works out for her mate.

You can generally gauge how serious these things are by the response of the Doctors, if they get you in the next day or two for the surgery then they're worried, if they put you on the waiting list then they're not to fussed and if they start talking about a few months then they're really only doing it to keep you off their back :) Unless of course your going private then it doesn't matter cos they'll do everything possible to get your money as soon as possible :D

It's probably/hopefully just a lipoma. I see these quite often. The only puzzler is why it's grown. They don't normally do that but thinking about it, any lipoma has to grow to become the size it is when I get to see it.
Is it quite mobile when you try to move it around under the skin or is it 'tethered'?

Not much movement - it's right on the bottom right floating rib, about 5mm in diameter and about 15mm long. The doctor says it's putting pressure on blood vessels, so that's why it needs to be knifed out. It also causes quite a bit of discomfort and pain to my wife.

The doctor has asked specifically for her mobile phone number, so they can get her in when a slot becomes available - not an emergency, but still quite high priority - this is what is worrying her (and me) the most. Normally you get fobbed off with a vague letter setting an appointment in the far off future.

It's a good thing though - that something is going to be done about it - I've kept telling her this is a positive thing, but as with such thing, it's still a bit of a worry, and all a bit of an unknown.

When I was Self Employed I only earned around £9000 per year and I had to pay Tax, NI and NI2, and was told if I didn't earn enough to have to pay that, that if I needed to sign on I would be able to.

Post by: Stormpr00ter on 18 April 2013, 08:14: AM
When I was contracting, I was paying £15/month in mandatory contributions, then the rest was calculated by HMRC when it came time for putting in the tax return. I think if you didn't earn enough then you don;t pay the extra NI, but then you are not eligible for one kind of Job Seekers Allowance, but you should get some money anyway, what used to be called income support?

Dunno, haven't been out of work for years.

Well thank's to being screwed over last year with my figures etc, I got 50% of my annual bonus removed and also I was not entitled to a pay rise which I already knew, and knew was going to happen half way through the year.

Today they finally put our saleries back on the intranet for us to look at and now I find that they have increased the minimum wages for someone in my role, and I find that my pay has not been increased to that rate so I am now being paid less than someone who was to come in to the role as a new starter and being paid less than everyone else in the team.

Well I guess it's time to start looking for a new job properly.

When I got my mum a laptop, sat her down in front of it, opened it up and booted it she looked around it puzzled and asked "where's the chicken?"
It took me a few seconds to realise that she meant "mouse"  :doh:

Today they finally put our saleries back on the intranet for us to look at and now I find that they have increased the minimum wages for someone in my role, and I find that my pay has not been increased to that rate so I am now being paid less than someone who was to come in to the role as a new starter and being paid less than everyone else in the team.


Its not as straight forward as a minimum salary regardless, it's dependant on having spent 12 months in the position and on performing to target.  Regardless of what a temporary or permanent manager does providing you scored a 3 or more in your end of year review then you'll get it through automatically Damien. They generally start to come through from July onwards and are back dated to the 1st of April. If you scored 2 or less then you won't get one because your deemed to not be performing.

The bemoaning a lack of salary increase would indicate you didn't take the advice I gave you before.

As for a new starters starting salary then there's nothing that says you have to start someone on or even below the "minimum" you start them on what you think they're worth within the salary bracket. I've had 4 new starters this year, two are below the minimum because they need significant training, one is on it because he has some but not yet all of the skills I need and the 4th is a couple of grand over the minimum because he lacks experience but brings a range of other skills that enhance the team over all.

To be honest Stu after I spoke up at a meeting about how the team I work in are shat on by other departments and our previous HOD got a bollocking for it, he was trying everything to get me on a PIP.

Then just before the end of year reviews were due he decided that a single mistake was enough to have me put on one, even though other people had made the same mistake but they had nothing done to them other than a bollocking but I got shoved on a PIP.

Now I don't have that HOD anymore and I have  a new manager who is not going to bend over so easy things should be better this year, but they already have started shit because of other departments not bothering to do there jobs.

So the next job I get where someone doesn't make a decision after the 1st time I call or email them, I will just go straight to there manager and drop them in the shit like they are doing to me.

Having a mild bout of clinical depression at the moment, so will probably not be online for a week or two. This is something that happens to me from time to time, usually brought on by stress at work. Main symptoms are lack of enthusiasm for anything, mild persecution complex and paranoia.
Unfortunately there is no cure, my brain is predisposed to the condition, but I have developed coping mechanisms over the years to get through the low points. Basically, no alcohol and avoiding social interaction, as my brain always wants to put the most negative slant on anything said to me.

Will probably still post here a bit, as text-based communication doesn't seem to cause me any problems.

I wouldn't worry about it as at least two of us are really difficult to upset because we have Aspergers and the rest are ex-army (so used to insults) or simply sarcastic feckers who are used to getting as good as they give.  :)
The only normal ones are Sky & PA and Dutchie they don't even come on TS any more  :(

I'm not sure it matters.  If one person thinks it then I'm sure a whole hell of a lot of other people do.  I'm usually quite give and take with my insults and joking around but that is one thing that does upset me a lot.  I manage to do things not because I can see but because I try and don't give up on them.  It hurts me a lot when people think I'm making the whole situation up.

I've had the "there's nothing wrong with him" type of comments for years about my condition. Essentially, and logically, other people's perceptions and opinions are completely irrelevant, and mostly unwelcome :D - and the end of the day you know the what the situation is, no matter what anyone may say about it. Anyway, that's what I keep telling myself. And that's not having a go at anyone else, it is simply the truth of the matter.

One of the major problems I get when my condition flares up is that the opinions of others gain far too much weight in my head, to the point where someone may be saying something quite innocently, and I know it is said innocently, but my brain turns it into something nasty and tries to trick me into thinking everyone is picking on me or having a go at me. It's a strange duality where my will and logic battle against the nonsense my depression tries to convince me is happening. In effect, social interaction (especially in groups larger than 3 or 4), becomes very tiring for me (because I have to concentrate so hard to keep it real), and at times the depression nonsense wins.

I've lived with this for 15 years, and I'm probably making it sound worse than it really is - it only gets bad from time to time, say every 6-9 months or so, and the bad periods usually only last for a week or two, maybe a month at most, other than those periods, it's fine and easily manageable.

Anti-depressants and other mood-stabilizers don't work for me, I think I've been through the entire menu of available medication back when I was first diagnosed, from prozac to lithium - they just made me feel worse. In the end I had to learn to manage the condition myself - which I have done to a certain extent, and am constantly trying to improve upon.

I am definitely not coping with my crap at the moment, but I don't like going to the GP as they find something else wrong every single time I go and I think that'd send me over the edge at the moment, I don't feel like bothering to go to the hospital either but if I don't it'd only upset Natalie so I do.

Yep, things can wear you down - some people are more naturally immune to it than others and can shrug it off easily, others cannot - it is simply the way of things, so we must each learn how to deal with it in our own way. Having to do things you don't want to do when your feeling low is one of the toughest hurdles to get over, I try to convince myself that not doing them is a bad option, and it's best to get it over with asap, especially when it comes to keeping family happy.

I've had the snap, crack and pop treatment before from a local chiropractor - I'm what he calls a 'laugher', apparently there are a few standard types when vertebrae are popped - some laugh (like me), some cry, and some scream.

Apparently, it's a release of tension/emotion built up by the discomfort or pain caused by the problem - once popped and cracked free it all comes flooding out in one of the three ways. The bloke I've been to have treatment from says it can be quite a scary experience with the screamers from his point of view, as he's never sure if the patient will get up and punch him out afterwards.

What is it with women and their cars? They want their houses to look lovely but the inside of their cars is a fecking tip  >:(

Are you getting your myths mixed up? Sisyphus was the guy who told on Zeus and his punishment was to roll a rock up a hill only for it to fall back down and he have to do it again. Where did the stables come into it? :)

£200 later and the pond filtration stuff still won't start.  Everything is replaced in the garden leaving the only option to be the cable from house to garden :(

And having pratted around with the garden all day, and all bank holiday that means the house is still nowhere near ready to even think about having a LAN.  This could get interesting :( Time for some emergency days off ...

I will persevere.  It's not as though there will be masses of us anyway, and you have all literally been warned that it's a building site, just going to be even more of one than you might have expected.

Unfortunately yes.  Not quite sure why but from time to time they can get very active and a bit too energetic for the boundaries of the pond.  It may relate to breeding season, but also seems to be a risk if the weather suddenly improves so the water temperature rises a few degrees in a very short time.  You only realise when a day or two later you are in the garden wondering where the dodgy fishy smell is coming from and realise there is a bloated carcass in a flower bed.

Yep they are mostly carp, of various varieties, Koi and some ghost or mirror types.

They don't intentionally jump, it's more a reaction to something else in the pond environment, maybe even a bit of chasing at certain times of the season :naughty:

Does she have any insurance on it, or is it still within warranty period with no signs of being dropped?

Well technically it's my phone - when she got her upgrade she swapped her note 2 with it (which is a galaxy s2) - I'm not sure if it's still in warranty - but I'll have to check if I can't fix it I guess.

Unfortunately she doesn't take very good care of her tech so it's obvious it's been on the floor a few times.

im so sick of being stabbed in the back at work, i do more than 99% of the advisors in here, escalations, floorwalking, coaching and most of all sorting people complete mess ups, yet all people see is that IM not on the phones and there peed off that there not, what makes me laugh is when i say i don't mind being on the phones and its not me who decides when and how long IM off for, they still think its not fair.
 
the thing is that they don't want to do the amount of work i do or do what i do they just want it so they can chill out, its alright for them when there sat there in 5-6 mins availability waiting for calls when i get over 50 escalations done in two days.
 
IM so sick off this now i really need to find a new job IM just sick of the petty backstabbing jealousy.

Good to get your own back there.

How about this for a dentist horror story.
The wife went to our normal surgery and there was a temp in.  He started looking at her teeth and said she had a specific thing which he tried to explain (I forget what).  To show her what he meant he grabbed her finger and put it in his mouth to feel his tooth.  She was so shocked she didn't complain like I would have.
It was about 6 years ago now, but the story still sends shivers down my spine when it comes up with mates.  :td:

If there's something that really gets my goat, it's selfishness and petty theft.

Down my way there are a lot of farms which have fresh produce stalls outside, and an honesty box so you can pay. These are great, you can get really fresh veg and eggs, often cheaper then the supermarkets and of far greater quality and flavour.

One local farmer has caught some git nicking the cash out of the honesty box (probably a tourist)

Meh, pussy.
I was on and off antibiotics for a year with a tooth infection. I still drank  :D
At the end of the year the dentist did a root canal job on my tooth.....without anesthetic! I can safely say that it was the most painful thing I have ever felt  :D

I really hate advertising bullshit

1. "You can't live without product X"

Bollocks, if you haven't got it already and you are actually alive, then you can live without it as has been proved by your life so far - QED

2. "Drink X hydrates your body better than water"

Horseshit, the word hydrate originates from the greek 'hydro' which f**king means water for f**ks sake, who the f**k are you trying to kid? Hydrate means to add water.

3. "Beauty Cream X make you look visibly younger"

More nonsense, how the f**k else are you supposed to compare, can you look audibly younger - me arse! perhaps we can compare by testing the degradation of cell replication due to old DNA - give us a f**king break!
BTW the same sh*t is sold to men (with a slightly different fragrance added) in order to make them look less "tired" - damn you Gerard Butler for selling out on that one!

4. "Beauty cream X now with Pro-rectinol XXV 2a"

Pseudo-scientific babble for some nasty chemical added to it that would probably make an excellent weedkiller.

5. "100% Beef"

Yep, all of the f**king cow contained within, no exceptions.

6. "100% Organic"

As opposed to what? Inorganic? Ionic, sub-atomic, wtf??. In reality the term means very different things depending on the product sold and is effectively a legal term which defines specific conditions in which the produce is grown/reared - this does allow for certain tolerances and percentages of chemical pesticides for crops and also steroids for animals, and also allows for usage of some chemicals when preparing and packaging fruit and veg for supermarkets in order to prolong shelf life.


That's enough for now

Lets hope it was just a faint and nothing too serious.

Something similar happened to my wife last 2 years ago - though when we were out walking rather than her driving. A temporary loss of blood pressure to the brain and she blacked out for a few seconds - very scary at the time.

My grandad was put on some medication for his heart which was causing him to black out and pass out some times, and in the end I think they have taken him off them or reduced the dosage of them to some which are slightly weaker and it's stopped it happening.

I can't remember the name of it, but I am sure if you ask me dad he will know what it is as I think his mum was on it as well and then you can check to see if he is on it and let the doctors know about it and they may find the same thing.

My opinion of Bedford hospital is un-printable.

While he was in they also tried to give him insulin "Because it says on your notes you've been taking it for over ten years".

As he pointed out to them "don't you think I look very well for a 38yr old!".

Needless to say they went and got his notes and sent mine back ;)

That is really annoying - I get problems with Crystal Reports for Visual Studio - it's a very fiddly thing to use, and has no autosave, I've often lost hours of work when it crashes.

Then I get more work shoved on my plate and told that I can do more overtime if needed, never mind that in the last 2 months I have done more overtime than I have ever done whilst working for VM.

I do about 40 hours overtime every month, unpaid. Sometimes I get some of the time back as time off. If the company does well, I may get a decent bonus at year end. I get paid a more than decent salary though, so I don't mind too much, though it can get too much at times.

I may have posted this before, but here it is again anyway - top 100 tips for anyone aspiring to world domination:

"Being an Evil Overlord seems to be a good career choice. It pays well, there are all sorts of perks and you can set your own hours. However every Evil Overlord I've read about in books or seen in movies invariably gets overthrown and destroyed in the end. I've noticed that no matter whether they are barbarian lords, deranged wizards, mad scientists or alien invaders, they always seem to make the same basic mistakes every single time."

I got a text from someone claiming to be you saying they'd got a new phone number but it was on the number I'd already got as yours so I was a bit confuddled.

The question about the Charcot foot was because when I got my diabetes diagnosis and was keen enough to do some research I got the impression that it affected the toes or the heel and up into the ankle but not the arches which were where I thought and you've just confirmed your latest break was.

Ahh  - no I have charcot foot AND breaks.  The two are not related aside from being in the same foot / leg. ;)

I know they're not directly related mate, though the diabetes is a prime driver behind both :(  unless of course your an alcoholic which is one of the other main drivers of dodgy glucose levels.

So that brings us back to my original but poorly phrased question :pp: is the charcot foot showing up in your toes or heel ?

Actually I did have a glass of wine at the weekend and immediately regretted it as I don't usually drink anything ;)

To answer your question the new charcot is across the top of the foot over the arch.  And that's where I had it on the left foot.  On the left foot it left deformed bone over and under the arch.

My daughter started on the violin, but after a few weeks of scratchy cat strangling sounds we persuaded her to take up piano instead.

It takes a long time for a beginner to get a decent sound out of a violin (we haven't got a smiley for 'cover your ears')

She had a go at the Tenor Horn as well, but has now settled on Guitar & Piano and singing. I play Clarinet & Guitar, though not at the same time.

Ripped the front part of the sole off my trainers while falling down the steps off the plane in Edinburgh airport earlier, big flappy bit, flopping and slapping on the floor as I walk along, with my big toe sticking out the front. The looks of bewilderment and disgust from people was very embarrassing but also funny.

Had to go to ASDA next to the hotel to buy a new cheapy pair of shoes for working on site tomorrow. Managed to find a pair for size 11s for £8 - bargain!

I can play BF3 on my laptop and not worried about BF4 so I think it's a viable option.

I would just put my SSD in the laptop and that should make it quick enough.

I only tend to do office and internet stuff on there these days.

So just put it on the desk and pplug my monitor in and I'm sorted :)

Just found out some news that could potentially be really bad workwise.

We have a meeting at 1pm today which is where the news is going to be broke officially to us, but if what we have just been told by unofficial sources is true then dependent on the time scales it could mean that me and my dad both will potentially be looking for a new job and also won't be attending the lan.

Going to be a very interesting few hours in work this afternoon.

No they are going to get contractors in to do the surveys.

Apparently this is all a proposal and not set in stone, however we all know really that it is set in stone and it doesn't matter what we say it will not change.

The thing is from a business point of view it's a really good choice because it means that I can do more work, which means we can get more business customers but from a personal point of view it's a real pain in the ass because, of having to now find the money from somewhere to buy a car and deal with all the extra's that go along with it.

OK so there is the "hassle" of running your own car, and difficulty of financing it's purchase.  But taxation on company cars has been quite punative for a few years now, unless you really do a lot of mileage?  Did you really do enough miles to justify the car, or in fact would you have been better off simply getting a mileage rate for using your own car.  For me, even though my job involves visiting loads of properties, I'm much better off running my own choice of car.

Of course for the firm, the savings on paper by using contractors to do the site survey, might not materialise.  What happens if the contractor doesn't get all the required info, or it proves inaccurate?

I'm fine, other driver complained of pain across chest (probably seat belt), so ended up with ambulance then police arriving for something that I'd thought was simple :shrug:  Speed was so low that airbags didn't deploy, but the way cars crumple these days if a corner of a car hits the centre of mine, it makes a right mess.

As for the LAN, that could be a real problem. :( I'll have to get a car for work, but any hire car is going to be tiny, and inevitably either a repair, or write off is going to take a bit of a while to resolve.

Deliberate spawn camping/killing is a low-life activity practiced by the brain-dead IMHO.
Not only does it piss others off, it must be pretty boring, or the offender is very sad to just sit and wait for people to spawn so they can shoot them - where's the fun in that? I cannot see it.

There is that, but in BF3, the perk system is not all that powerful - yes you get a few addons for your guns, but that's about it - and there are plenty of fast-ranking game setups if you want lots of kills (but have lots of deaths too) - the one I used to play on was a 64 player TDM on Nosehair Canals - utter carnage, but you got your upgades for your guns relatively quickly without resorting to lowlife behaviour. Not a place for those who cherish their K/D though...

Workload!

Just got in from doing 10 hours of overtime today, on top of the 37.5 hours I did for the normal work week, on top of the overtime I did last weekend and the work week before that.

Still have a minimum of 10 hours worth of work tomorrow and will be starting work at around 7am tomorrow and probably won't finish till at least 5pm or later.

Not had a full day of work for the last 2 weeks and still have all next week and next weekend to work yet, before I am off for a week and I am seriously looking forward to that week off.

Whether they like it or not, unless you have opted out of the working time directive your employer can't make you do such hours.  Indeed any reasonable HR department, even if you have opted out should be concerned that those hours prejudice your welfare.

Sorry MGP but that shows a degree of naivety mate. What with the voluntary opt outs, the excluded industries and the whole 17 week rolling period thing, the EU working time directive isn't worth the time it takes to read it, as any decent employment law solicitor will tell you. And as for believing that any HR department actually cares about the workforce .................. The clue is in the title "resource" since becoming a resource management function rather than a personnel management one the focus is on ensuring that both management and workforce follow the policies, guidelines, regulations and laws that can actually be successfully enforced while paying lip service to the rest.

Damien, look on the bright side with all that overtime you'll be able to get a Titan next month ;)

Well I did opt out of doing just the normal 37.5 hour week, but it's just the amount of work that I have at the moment that is causing the need for so many hours to be done.

Once I have finished what I have in my queue, if I then need to do over time in the next few months it's only going to be a couple of hours which will be fine.

The other thing is that the company won't stop me doing the amount of overtime I am doing currently because we just don't have enough people in our office to cover the work we have, but because of some stupid reasons we are not allowed to get more staff to help ease the work load on each person and then we have other managers who are refusing to help us out even though there workload is that low, that I could do there entire teams work on my own.


I am just having a cup of tea now and then I will be heading in to work again, so I will say it now I won't be on tonight as I was falling asleep last night in my chair before I even had anything to eat after getting in from work and that will probably be the same tonight.

Yeah I will have enough for a Titan but they are not worth the money, I am waiting for Maxwell next year and besides I have more important things to pay for next month than another upgrade to my pc  :D

Welcome to my world!

I am 'contracted' for 37.5 hours per week, but rarely do less than 50, and I don't get 'overtime'. But like I've probably said before, I am on a good salary, and qualify for (hopefully) a decent bonus at the end of the year - but this is also dependent on my colleagues also putting in the hard work to make the jobs we do profitable - so swings & roundabouts....
