    @Nexxo
    I don't know what to say really other than take care of yourself, I am hoping for the best.

    Nothing says "Bummer, dude" more than a dead hard drive :(

    Lost some data. Well, here. I have it all at home x3. Have bought a caddy, will take that home and stick all of the missing stuff on it then bring it here and copy it onto the replacement drive.

    Trying to join the police and after having a meeting last week about the recruitment process being 6 phases, I just had the phase 2 deductive reasoning test and holy **** balls that was hard.

    finished it but **** knows how well I did, not looking forward to the results in the coming weeks.

    Why is it always printers or DNS?

    Why is it always Friday?

    Kitchen fit:
    Yesterday day 4 was better - Wren sent out a new fitter, and he's doing a great job - fixing some of the previous guys issues. Although it wasn't until 1pm before we got him.

    Today day 5 we discovered one of the worktops hadn't been delivered, even though the delivery guys scanned everything in.

    And to top it off, turns out the boiler enclosure cant be repurposed as a standard cupboard with shelves and backboard - original fitter suggested no problem, until it was unpacked), so that had to be ordered and doesn't arrive until next Thursday
    Ohh, and boiler guy had dumped the coffin tank in with the kitchen waste, so when the uplift appeared today they refused to take it as not part of kitchen - now chasing up the boiler dude to come and remove it :)


    Never get a new kitchen fitted if you can avoid it, just paint the doors.

    One of my molars just shattered chewing a very soft Anzac biscuit I made yesterday. Rear side of the tooth is gone, along with the filling it once contained. Can't get an appointment till Monday 1st Nov, but they'll call me with any cancellations. Can't even go and get a temp filling as we're in isolation till tomorrow.

    Good luck. It's a fairly brutal process. My fiancee was very lucky to get in before they put that degree requirement in. It's crazy the amount of work she had to do at home during the training too.

    The missus cracked a tooth a while back, and like you couldn't get an appointment until some time in November. I bought her this stuff, and while it needs reapplying every couple of days it's keeping the sharp edge from cutting up her tongue. Might be worth a try!

    Wife now has the COVID - slight cough and sniffles. The boy still has no symptoms. My youngest and I are still negative (FLEX)!

    In regards to the rooms - I was advised to cancel (through Booking.com) for the refund. I did that but that was when I found out about having to pay the full price for the rooms (which I had done months earlier). Blame my urgency in getting booked up during a half term holiday in Cornwall...

    So technically, they said it was too late to refund (with 5 days before the trip) after I had cancelled and when I asked to keep the room open (as it has been paid for), they had booked it to someone else. So I take some of the responsibility - I shouldn't have cancelled but that was the advice to get at least some of the money back... I didn't get any, however.

    I don't think I have much to stand on here...

    woke up this morning to find the boiler was leaking, and has come through to the ceiling below - the ceiling that was recently painted.

    Aye I take the point but the reason they don't give refunds that late in the day is because they can't re-advertise the room; since they've managed to do that I feel they should refund you, they're not out of pocket.

    don't you just hate it when you put **** down and and lose it moments later? this past week I've misplaced in the house: my leatherman, a pair of shades and a £25 amazon gift card.

    doing doo-lally tearing up the house looking for them.

    Re-building my PC back into the Lian Li case and managed to mis-align the USB3.0 cable with the header causing two of the pins to bend and the end of the port to snap off. Managed to get it all back together and working but **** me that was annoying.

    Also I couldn't find the USB backup drive on our NAS yet again. Could see it fine when directly looking at the NAS itself but Windows couldn't find the drive (despite it showing up within the network drop downs & the NAS itself being visble and mappable). Here's hoping there are some decent storage deals around Black Friday so I can replace the lot.
