- Small victories – Let’s have ’em.
Re-calibrated the electric window on my van. The one-touch raise function stopped working on the passenger side, I assumed it was a dirty switch contact or something. Mentioned it to one of my colleagues who told me about the calibration thing on his VW, (mine is a Ford), 2 minutes of Googling had the reset procedure.
It’s a VERY small victory, the simplest thing to do, but as I didn’t even know it’s a thing I’d have probably put up with it forever.Posted 2 months ago
Oh, speaking of small victories,
Got the top of the leaderboard in an escape room at the weekend. We win a free game if it lasts till the end of the month.
They have separate leaderboards for 2, 3, 4 and 5-player teams. We beat all the other ones too. (-:

Thanks. It really does smart 🙁
Any lawyers on here could look over the 1995 amendment to the 1957 planning conditions?… we have no money 🙁 the developer has billions.

After three years of planning and delays (thanks to planning, builders, neighbourhood politics, brexit (yes, really), ineffective engineers and a host of other things completely out of my control), the builders started work adjusting internally and extending externally my house yesterday 🙂Posted 2 months ago
Opened the cup cupboard and two mugs fell out, caught them both 😎
I’m really good at stuff like this. My kitchen floor is Victorian earthenware tiles seemingly forged in the fires of Mordor, it’s insta-death to anything that hits it. Over the years I’ve honed ninja-like reactions to catching things with my foot. Wasn’t so great the one time I dropped my kitchen knife, mind…Posted 2 months agoHarry_the_SpiderSubscriber
I dropped my phone when stood on the viewing platform at Man O’War Beach. Just as it was sailing towards oblivion I managed to swing a leg and volley it back on to the path (without thought of accidently sending myself over the edge). Skilz 100%, phone now about 50% as the impact with my foot and/or the ground means that alligment of the screen is typically one character off to the right.Posted 2 months agoplumberMember
Found a deceased laptop in my office cupboard last week.
Thought it must belong to someone
fired it up – my name appears
then remembered it was mine from about 5 years ago……..
whatever I thought was wrong with it 5 years ago has miraculously cured itself
but new old laptop – which is nicePosted 2 months agoPJM1974Member
Portia Mayhew (name changed to protect the innocent) went out with me AND my mate Gary, at the same time when we were at secondary school. I found out because Gary and I sat next to one another in Maths.
I can’t speak for her intellectual development since then, but we’ve just had an exchange on social media about last week’s attack at London Bridge (a stop I routinely use on my way to and from work, no less). I ended up having to politely and very gently explain in single syllable words to Portia why the death penalty may not be a deterrent to suicide attackers and why we can’t just execute people without finding them guilty of a crime first.
Twelve year old me dodged a bullet there I can tell you.Posted 2 months ago
