    Bull$*&£ bureaucracy in the NHS. We have just moved house to one that is 0.3 miles further from the doctor's surgery that we have been going to for the past 4-5 years and have been told that we can no longer go to that one as we are now out of their area and must register with a new one.

    Both myself and my wife are diabetic with my wife also having thyroid problems and constant pain from reflex sympathetic dystrophy and the doctors we have been seeing have been nothing short of amazing with us both, with one in particular being known as one of the best doctors in Nottingham to see if you are diabetic.

    We now have to register with another practice and jump through all the hoops that entails, new patient checkups, medicine review meetings, diet and weight-loss appointments, etc.

    All this at a surgery we have just found out closes at mid day..... How the fudge are we meant to be getting ourselves sorted out when we both work 8 hour days and the surgery closes before we can get to see them?

    Our current GPs have told us that it is all a load of crap but there is nothing that can be done about it. Apparently this whole mess is going to be scrapped in April of next year and people will be free to go to other surgeries if they want to, I just hope we can get re-registered at the one we want to be with when that happens.

    The person cutting the grass woke me up, woke my wife up, woke our baby (who is teething) up, and I'm praying he doesn't cut the thermostat line AGAIN. Last time it took months to figure out that's why the AC didn't work.

    Did I mention I'm deathly allergic to grass?

    Change your SSH port to something else, and use iptables to drop (not reject) any traffic to port 22, and any port except 80 and 443 in fact. There's loads of tutorials out there for it.

    Also, you could use rewrite rules to send a "301 permanently moved" redirect for all those PMA locations to or goatse or something. Hopefully something will break their script.

    1: Enable a (not the) root login (ie create a non-admin user called root)
    2: set that user login with a MOTD that reads "echo format c:|M|M"
    3: ????
    4: enjoy the silence

    At least Fuji have given me £81 off a new camera and don't appear to require me to send the broken one back to them. Maybe I could see what sort of interesting effects I can get.

    Building office is closed half an hour before they're suppose to. This means I can't get my watch and photo prints. Effin YAY.
