    Got fired for some bulls*** reason at work a couple days ago. I got fired on the 12th of this month. They said they felt I'm not a good fit for their company. Bull frigging s***. I have been there for a year and a month..... Oh well I managed to land a job shortly after I got let go. Money is money after all. Just have to manage my budget a bit differently now.

    MyHermes and Parcel2Go - AKA Dumb & Dumber of the courier world...

    A set of brakes sent to Portugal 29th May, address query raised but no notification given (even though you provide both a mobile number and email address at booking...). A month later and I get a PayPal dispute from buyer saying they haven't been delivered - go check tracking, all kinds of entries that mean nothing, last one dated 23rd June saying "on it's way back to retailer". Multiple "chats" to Parcel2Go support, get told it's stuck in MyHermes system and could take anywhere between 4 and 6 weeks to be returned. Another 2 weeks later, now over 7 weeks since I dropped the parcel off, still no updates. Try to go direct to MyHermes - "this parcel number is associated with a 3rd party, please contact them directly".

    :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Got around their ticket system by using a different parcel number then highlighting the actual issue in the message. See if they actually know where the bloody box is and how long it's going to take to get back to me...

    The bloods are back: cat's definitely got hyperthyroidism. Radioiodine injection: £2,200, plus £22 a day for him to stay until he's not glowing in the dark any more 'cos there's no chuffin' way we can adhere to the "keep him in a separate room away from children for a month" rules in this tiny house.

    I really, *really* hope the insurance coughs up.

    With humans it is the same. They encourage that the person who has reviced treatment have a separate bedroom and bathroom. If you work at a nuclear power plant you have to take time off so you don't set off radiation alarms.

    It's not been on in a while, so I can pull it open if need be. Need to build it a small enclosure to retain the cables and stop the cats trying to chomp on them.

    It'd certainly be cool, especially since it's only used to power 2 fans nowadays. Although those 2 fans live either side of the bed and the psu under, so wouldn't be particularly conducive to sleep.

    Android emulators don't play with Hyper-V installed, but I need Hyper-v to keep Ford stuff and Java stuff away from my main install.

    I thought I'd lucked out with Android-x86 and some Hyper-V trickery, but so far the going is slow and rather frustrating.

    I also can't make it play ball using Android Studio or even Visual Studio, although both purportedly use Hyper-V under the surface as the means of emulating. Also not convinced that's the right way to go about a permanent Android emu..

    Edit: Apparently the trick to making android-x86 work on hyper-v was grumbling about it on the internet.

    Edit2: The mouse tracking is horrendous, and the app I wanted this all for doesn't seem to respond to keyboard input. No bother, the app is only a game and the game is dying anyway.

    I was out for coffee with colleagues on Wednesday. Got back home, no house key. No spare. Damn slippery short pockets. Fortunately it was on the sofa in the coffee shop.

    Realised as I walked out of the station but was too late by then, and this was almost midnight last night, so my fiancée found some numbers to call and a contact form thingy when we got in and is going to contact them today so fingers crossed.
    Of course I've no way of finding out if she's successful till I get home as I can't access my email either thanks to two factor authentication haha.

    Thanks, mate. I'll speak to the neuro surgeons today, so fingers crossed they have good news. My mum's still kept in the ICU, but she's stable.

    Getting paranoid that this PC upgrade I have planned is going to go anything BUT smoothly, at the acquisition stage... I just want the bits bought and delivered faster than possible.

    I'm usually quite patient, but this is testing my limits.

    D'you know what you're doing?

    You're over-thinking it.

    Don't think I'm being a d!ck, I totally understand. Recently I wanted to paint a bike frame. I spent a month over thinking it to the point of brain implosion. I bought a stand to hold it whilst I painted it. A tent in case it rained and even a second paint kit @ £35 just in case I f***ed up.

    Wanna buy a tent/rain shelter or a paint kit dude? Never even opened : D

    In the end I bashed it out in about 6 hours total.

    I think auties suffer from doubt to the point of exhaustion. Try to relax (I know, it's worthless me saying that because I know there's 0 chance of that actually happening.
