    Feex. I uploaded it twice and deleted the wrong one it seems. Also note that Hynix have been cutting corners, literally. Look at the edge connector on the memory....

    Yeah I fixed it now. If you saw it before I deleted it would cache like it did for me :)

    Pic now works.

    Topic - Thought my fileserver had died as it wouldn't start. Turned out that the /boot partition was full because old kernels, and it couldn't unpack the newest one. Now cleaned up & back to normal :D

    What a refreshing change to have great customer service from a big company.
    Bought a Lenovo Yoga 3 Plus a fortnight ago which had a major battery fail after the upgrade to Android 7.
    Although I tried to get help from Lenovo via FB and email they ignored both even though there is a 36 page thread on their own forum Lenovo have yet to acknowledge there is an issue.

    I contacted A O the retailer, they phoned me this morning and arranged for me to speak with a Lenovo techie. Result being battery borked and I was offered a free repair in Germany. I pointed out that in the UK I was entitled to a replacement or refund under our consumer laws. They agreed and sent me a DOA (Dead on Arrival?) number which I have passed on to A O who have processed a refund and also price matched a Samsung Tab S2 9.7 saving a £100 which I will get tomorrow.

    So I thought I was down to my last £100 for this month all week, not a big deal as payday is tomorrow, turns out a cheque I put in last week was never actually added to my available balance until it fully cleared today - extra £250 that is essentially "out of budget" money, weheey!

    Last month I thought "ooo I have an extra hundred quid !". I nearly spent it, then about two hours later the penny dropped and I realised it was two weeks's groceries money. I'd have been pretty hungry lol.

    I really am not too sure. They might or they might not affect the pump. Only time will tell. :D

    Good work, George!

    Oh, also... realising that your three month old truck doesn't have rust and it was just a scare... :D

    There was some weird rusty colour in tiny dots on the paint, and I almost had a heart attack when I saw them. Luckily they just came straight off. Phew!

    Finding out that I can sell my Brewdog shares without waiting for some asinine trading day. I just have to do the leg work myself.

    Goodbye shares, hello debt-free!


    ..Assuming it all goes well.

    I just found a box containing a drill, a bunch of bits, and a pack of jigsaw blades.
    I have no idea how these came in to my possession.
