    Installing Windows, getting to the drivers and on the last one it saying "You can not install this driver on a 32 bit Windows system" and then realising for some reason it installed Win 10 32 bit.

    GRR. Again, must start :(

    Volkswagen vows to end animal testing after latest diesel scandal but only after they have been caught of course. I wonder did the UK actually do anything to Volkswagen after the software scandal or did our politicians just tut tut and wag their fingers and let it go?

    Besides telling them to fix all the cars fror free, not really.

    My elderly, Polish and very Jewish neighbour observed that when it comes to gassing people Germans just seem to have it in their nature, probably related to all the hot air that comes out of their mouths. I probably shouldn't have laughed.

    Reaping the benefits of my new job....kind of

    After starting my new job last year I didn't see any difference in disposable cash, but now I do, lots of cash, however........
    So I have been looking at upgrade my graphics card and RAM, I was interested in getting a 10-core Xeon system up and running, but E5's are quite expensive so decided on a RAM and GFX card upgrade.
    As you are all aware, the prices are ludicrous, so though I have this extra money I can't justify spending £1300 on a 1080Ti and 32GB RAM

    Time to save? time to buy more servers (secondhand of course)?

    I can only drink so much Lagavulin, but at least everything makes sense when I do!

    @Bazz , I feel your pain :D I've got more disposable income now than I have had for some time, and have put aside a modest fund for a new GPU. Unfortunately I've been sitting on it for the last few months as prices have gone ever more bonkers... Going to have to watch it, because once the nice weather rolls around I can definitely see said GPU fund being reallocated to bike stuff :D

    Found some rust on my new car in a very awkward place, probably going to need the whole rear subframe,diff, axles etc dropping to get to the chassis rail to repair it.
    B******S!!

    My autistic 6 year old has gotten worse and is now having violent episodes when things don't go her way. One good example, the mrs. took all of the kids out for a walk and the 6 year old had a tantrum, ran about two streets to our house and then wanted to go back out again. I kept her indoors with me, which then led her to shout, scream and start throwing things.

    Anything AEG based - I can't import them to Germany (German rules and regulations, surprise surprise, are very strict), so before I go, they have to.

    Already parted ways with the M82, still got my M468 and my bits box abomination.
