My line is ropey at times but 1.8mb is shocking.

For me that's good used to get about 1.5mb, im hoping new router an updated port itll get a little quicker in the next week or so. We are the near enough the furthest you can get from the exchange so itll never be that good.

Usually they have to give you 2 months' notice, unless you're in breach of the tenancy agreement (late payment of rent, damage, noise/nuisance, etc). https://www.gov.uk/tenancy-agreement...ding-a-tenancy

I've moved into a new role at work and I'm being back-filled by three different people, in London, Amsterdam and Dubai no less.

Initially this tickled me right in my ego-hole, but I've somehow only just now realised (despite being involved in planning for the last several months) the long and painful process that handover is going to be, and that I'm going to be stuck doing both old and new jobs for quite some time :/

You know what? That sounds like a capital idea.

I don't know how people can spend so much on therapy when the internet is so awesome at spiritual healing.

Sorry to hear that fella, it's really debilitating...
We had sleep problems for 5 years with my son, who from 2 - 7 wouldn't go through the night, and would get up agitated and bang on our door multiple times. You could put him back to bed like they show on the TV, but he would be back repeatedly and no amount of attention or ignoring it (the other strategy...) worked.
Broken sleep most nights for years doesn't do much for your sanity, we had to get medical help in the end.
By the end of it I was nearly a single Dad. I feel for you. If it's medical, can you try Melatonin? We had it on consultant's prescription, which helped him go to bed and settle, but didn't keep him down all night. It was a big help for starters.

Bought an LCD driver board on eBay, so I could build a "smart mirror" with an old laptop LCD. Pretty sure the picture isn't supposed to look like that!

That's pretty trippy. Perhaps they thought you wanted a LSD driver instead of a LCD one?

What you did there, see it I do .

Progress at least, but clearly that's still not right. And I still can't navigate the menu.

Continuing the monitor theme, I fear my venerable Dell 3007 is reaching the end of it's life. I'm seeing a weird vertical line of shadowy distortion, about 3 inches in from the left side - like there is slight pressure on the screen - but it's only visible on plain, light coloured backgrounds and only after the monitor has been on for a few hours.

I can live with it at the moment, but it's bound to get worse.

Sounds like an excuse for a monitor upgrade to me That said, those old Dells are just brilliant monitors, so you might need to drop some serious cash to get a true upgrade...

Hence the life-ruining part. I really can't see me dropping down to 24" 1080p, so I'm looking a 27" 1440p at a minimum - there is the 2560x1080 option too, but I fear it'll feel mush too short after 1600p . Not really fussed about 4K, unless I drop on an absolute bargain.

Yeah, I think I'd cry if I had to go from 1600p to 1080p, even if it was an ultrawide screen. I'm a huge fan of 16:10 and it's a crying shame that such screens are like hen's teeth these days. In a way I'm glad that I'm "only" at 1200p because I could probably just about cope with the drop to 1080p...

Ouch, I've just had a look on Scan and the Dell UP3017 is a cool 960
