    Not right now no. I'm scared to even look outside.

    I needed a new mod any way. Mine, well I am amazed it even still works. I don't have to buy gear often, but I do need to. Maybe once a year I'll get a new tank batteries and box mod. It still beats the crap out of smoking.

    I wanted longer lasting batteries. These are 4200MAH Molicel which apparently are the best on the market right now. As of now I am using 1500 MAH batteries and yeah, all I seem to be doing is charging and changing....

    This one new battery lasts longer than 2 18650, so it means I can charge 4 at once and they'll last ages. Worth spending an extra £16 tbh, especially given the state of the one I have.

    "Some employers" friends in the Tory party have made it easy for them, by systematically removing worker's rights.

    BREXIT, or more specifically the delay of BREXIT is delaying me from starting work. Suddenly I'm PRO-BREXIT.

    Call Of Duty, modern crashfare.

    Apparently you can fix it by locking it to 30 FPS. I'll wait for a patch.

    What a crying shame. The London part is incredible and it's one of the best looking games I've ever played.

    Harumph!!!

    Had a heart attack on Sunday at the lovely age of 37, no major factors why, just bad luck. Was not a fun experience

    I'm already home, had a stent fitted same day, few nights observations, discharged with meds and pending support.
    I'm in good health and fitness which has really helped, can't make the normal changes to lifestyle as I don't smoke, don't drink much, I gym 4 times a week.

    I won the "have a heart attack lottery" without entering

    Sorry to hear that. So glad you made it. My dad died at 35 of a heart attack.

    Go easy on yourself man.

    No doubt the employer will be utterly baffled why productivity is down. It’s almost like there is a link between treating your employees well and high productivity. Of course most are more concerned by you being seen rather than actually managing.. (because the latter takes effort). Fortunately where I work we have a good team but that cannot be said of the wider business.

    Jeez, hope you feel better soon!!



    I am currently enjoying dealing with differing prices between what we commercially agreed at the point of PO creation and what we have been invoiced. Transpires the processes being followed internally is overriding the already confirmed PO and thus fan and excrement.... Doesn’t help that our SAP system has all the data but it is so opaque that using it en mass is a nightmare.

    Congratulations on your continued survival.

    Hopefully your lifestyle beforehand will help you to a speedy recovery.

    They sack them first, or wonder why some epidemic of lurgy has killed off 95% of the staff. Got to the point the other year they handed out bottles of alcohol gel!

    Well, thats not ideal, least your alright, just take it easy, not the lotto you planned on winning!

    Remember this, from back in March?
    It's *finally* stopped printing black. Still haven't found the spare toner, mind you...

    Mine just prints black smears all over the page :blah:

    I really should look into replacing all 4 toner cartridges, they're all pretty low. Not buying genuine HP toners though, prices are anywhere between £350 and £450 for a full set! :lol:
