    Just had an email saying "Fibre is now available in your area".

    Try only being able to access highly throttled and capped cellular while sitting on the trunk, and being told that there never will be a plan to extend coverage to your area.

    It's actually working fine for me, as I'm to the point where I could shuffle off the net and not look back.

    Having a Job where you don't have enough hours to sign off from JSA.

    Also, I have to use 'Universal Jobmatch' to record my jobsearch for them. Most of their jobs don't go through their website because recruiters hate their website. You can write notes, something i've taken to so as to complain about the awful state of their website. You apply for a job and it doesn't appear on the application history. Why have it then?! I then have to write a note on my activity to say I've applied for it.

    I plan to make my log as entertaining as possible. For the reason that my 'advisor' has to read it all.

    If they read it at all... I deliberately made **** up to see if the actually read it... but nope they completely glossed over the following:

    Weyland-Yutani [Alien]
    Kaalakiota, Viziam and CreoDron [EVE Online]
    Encom [TRON]
    Kassa Fabrication [Mass Effect]

    Well we have to do it all online now. We write notes and say what we did and thoughts on it etc. If they have the ability to snoop on my profile to see everything i've done, i'm going to make it entertaining. Not for them to enjoy, to aggravate them as much as possible.

    Account balance under 1k€ first time after five or so years, doesn't feel good.

    Seriously thinking about taking one year off uni and working (since it's propably easier to get job if you can do it for a full year - or feels like so) or just quitting and seeking other possibilities from some other continent where every 10th person ain't unemployed.

    :wallbash:

    My mother in law has been sectioned. The Mrs. is taking it pretty hard. As someone with a mental disorder, I can understand her plight since I was sectioned once a long time ago in my teens. The mrs. is too afraid to tell her brothers since.... it was technically part of their fault she got this way in the first place.

    My iPod touch's screen is shattered.. backing up to iCloud AND to iTunes so I can have peace of mind when I wipe this, I don't have to worry about any data being stolen when I get this repaired and/or replaced.

    Still, it sucks that this screen got shattered.

    The cost for repair/replace will be at least 110 Canadian Dollars..

    Could always do the repair yourself?

    All you need is a hair dryer and a putty knife!

    I'd learn to repair it yourself, most of the Iphone/Ipod touch screens use similar layouts so the skill is interchangeable. It'd cost less than half of what you'd pay in a repair shop, mostly since you're only paying for a part, the repair shop normally takes more than 50% for profit, so they quite often overinflate the price. I used to work in a repair shop for a while, but I got out of it because even the legit ones take such a massive chunk for profit.

    Selflessly worked my socks off on Saturday, thinking, "Ooh, I can't wait for a nice hot soak when I get back home".

    I had to make do with a lukewarm soak after my boiler decided to call it a day. Hopefully it's only something minor.

    Think I have an ear infection or prolonged ear ache, Hopefully just an ear ache I hate going to the doctors it seems like a waste of time for people that have a genuine concern. This is killing me though.

    Its not stopped me working out and eating clean, I just wish I wasn't so indecisive with everything else and be dedicated to other tasks I set earlier on this year.

    They only skim through it I put down the ref no's.

    Someone told me they have a quota for handing out sanctions and if your jobsearch is not frequent enough they will have you come in for daily signings.

    I see a few people getting sanctioned everytime I go up there....no money for 6 months I would just rob some places.. better off in prison.

    It's ridiculous really it costs a lot more to keep someone in prison than on benefits, our backward government they only care about getting votes.

    We're getting people off benefits and we're locking people up, vote for us.
