You must have been the guy at passport control who gave me a bad time about my beard and the fact in my passport picture I didn't have one.

He seemed to think it was funny, but after 11 hours on a plane I didn't appreciate his "light hearted" comments! :supergrin:

the humour is one way with those guys. Fine for them to make jokes to you, but anything back the other way is not so well received...

i arrived a while back at Sydney airport passport desk and was asked why I only had hand luggage for three week stay? I told the officer ' I believe you have shops down here nowadays?' He started laughing and sent me on my way. Not sure I would get that in the UK.

My wife says to me, "My phone [iPhone] is not pinging when I get a text". I send her a test text and sure enough no ping. She sends me one and I also don't get a ping. But we both hear pings on our iPads.

I spend the next 30 minutes Googling and checking every setting and doing every suggestion found on Google.

Finally one site mentioned you might have you phone in Silent Mode [vibrate]. Apparently we both did!

A senior moment I think... very annoying!

The BBC website (usually pretty good) and its 'Reality Check' section. For an organisation that gets a lot wrong, it's an odd arrogance to think they are in any position to 'fact check' stories.

You say it's good but gets a lot wrong.

I don't get the criticism of the BBC; do people really want a hyper partisan Fox/CNN style setup? Because that's the alternative.

You don't see Fox reporting on Fox's own malfeasance, or running shows where people write in to moan about Fox - but the BBC does.

So in keeping with the thread: people moaning about the BBC.

I have probably mentioned this before on this thread but it is doing my head in. On websites, "would you like to take a survey, receive updates, subscribe etc" where is the NO button?, it's always "Maybe later" or "Not right now"

Also HSBC Business banking log in, they ask you THREE times if you will or will not accept cookies, and ask you again and again, no matter what browser you have, or what settings.

I reckon I have spent probably 8 years of my life accepting HSBC cookies and inserting USB plugs upside down.. :wallbash::wallbash:

I admire the ingenuity of that and think to myself, what will they come up with next. I actually think I know. It's where you place your eyes when viewing an ad on CCTV monitored electronic billboards. Facial recognition and you watch how you get targeted then.

They’ve been doing that for a while, not on public ads but when testing, there is software that tracks people’s eye movements when they look at ads and creates a heat map so you can see what parts of the ad are getting the most attention.

Pretty sure they are already doing it on those instore menu order POS screens. Certainly toying with it.

Reminds me of a time when one of my work colleague was entering password to his phone, and it kept coming up as ‘wrong’ and got a final warning message, next wrong one will wipe, and he thought, sod it let it reset and I will enter a new one and as it was getting wiped, he saw his phone next to him and realised he had been trying to enter the password on someone else’s phone and is now being wiped……he did come out clean and said I wiped your phone by mistake sorry mate etc.

I had to stop on a small roundabout in town yesterday as an elderly couple in front had pulled up to let their friend very slowly get in. I wasn't annoyed, it made me laugh tbh.

PeterH 18-06-2021 07:12 PM

A niggle.

We have waited all week for an electrician to work on a project on our house.

I have carefully planned my week, and softened up my missus for today's
England vs Scotland, Chile vs Bolivia fest.

Electrician has arrived today, we have materials. He is just now starting the work.

I think my careful and calculated plans are now fecked.

Once the power goes off I reckon I have to accept it with the utmost outward grace. Any complaint runs the risk of me being unreasonable.

I haven't seen any football since Monday.

This is also true, however they do like to use roundabouts as pick up and drop off points for their friends, which also involves a lengthy greeting or farewell before moving off.

Watching the England v Scotland match and a couple of yanks screaming for the shoot out at the end. When politely informed that there wouldn't be one they started giving out about nil nil draws in saaacher. I less politely asked them why the American nation creams themselves when a pitcher in baseball pitches a no hitter. This wasn't answered, but one of them came out with the old cliché about a draw being similar to kissing your sister. Of course I couldn't resist and mentioned that along with no-hitters maybe kissing ones sis gives them the same experience as watching a no-hitter.

Oh yes. Oh yes with a great big capital 'F'

You can have a crystal clean screen, but when it comes to highlighting text, it just develops a mind of it's own. You can pinch outwards until you can read the soddin' text from the other side of the room, but does it help? Like **** it does... :wallbash:

IOS updates randomly changing settings on your devices AND screwing up useful apps making them defunct. The former has driven us a bit mad. Better half and I have always shared the same ID since the earliest iPod days. It’s never been much of an issue because I have always had iPads and a non Apple phone and Missus has had an iPhone/iPads. With one of the updates recently every time one of us used chrome the others chrome icon would show activity and when chrome was next used on the other iPad it would open up the same windows. Irritating for us and the longer it has gone on the worse that has been. I am sure a bit awkward for some couples :) I doubt many share ids with partners these days but with kids using their iPads it might make for some awkward moments :)

Anyway, spent ages exploring Chrome sync settings on both devices and looking around IOS settings. Googled it etc etc etc but nothing was working. Eventually discovered that the Handoff feature had been turned back on, I assume in the last update. Pain in the a***. But if any of you share ids and have been getting funny looks after ‘dubious browsing’ it might explain it :)

Had an iPad for 6 months, that was 6 months of alternating between incredulity at what basic things it could not do, frustration at its lack of user ease and annoyance at its total uselessness at anything.

As you say, people seem to be wooed by style over substance...they also seen brainwashed into defending the useless pieces of shite...it's almost cult like.

I used a blackberry for a number of years and it was an awesomely practical device. Super reliable and just did everything I needed it to very well without plugging it in every 5 secs.

It was sad that it suffered from brand culture, and fell away. Replacement parts are ridiculously cheap now.
The interesting news is that its design patents have been bought out and a new model is expected to be out this year. It will have the beloved physical keyboard. I hope they get the pricing right. Meanwhile, my KeyOne goes on and on.

The interesting news is that its design patents have been bought out and a new model is expected to be out this year. It will have the beloved physical keyboard. I hope they get the pricing right. Meanwhile, my KeyOne goes on and on.

The first time I saw the tiny keyboard I thought that must be a nightmare but it wasn’t and tbf it was a lot better than this stupid iPad one.

How? I

I've looked without any success. I only see two options. Do it automatically or ask to do it.

But I'll look again.

Nice try... thanks.

But this is for search options (from what I can tell), not upgrade/update options. From what I've found on help and chat sites Firefox removed the option to never update or suggest update about a year ago. A lot of pissed off comments out there.

Sorry, I thought I found the smoking gun

Bellend sports commentators like Paul McGinley unable to (or too lazy to) correctly pronounce certain golfers names.

How many times does Gareth Bale say “yeah, no” in interviews. I’m surprised he hasn’t been told it makes no sense. Thick twat.

I hate how the term ‘woke’ has been weaponised as a derogatory slur and become common language to take the piss out of people.

In related news, I probably need to spend less time on Twitter.

‘woke’ is the new ‘snowflake’ and generally used by the ‘gammons’

Probably. You will see less 'Woke' rhetoric.

And it was the 'Woke' who named themselves as such. Using that term as a shorthand is not necessarily a sign of disrespect, in the same way as 'SJW' clearly is realistically a slur.

But don't worry. The 'Woke' have their own terms for people who won't fully agree with them on everything they feel and have chosen to believe as 'truth.' The kindest term, used by someone right here on the BBS, is the 'Left Behinds.' That one almost reminds one of the conceit of those believing in The Rapture and is the kind of thing that makes people see the Woke as a cult. Then there's the more traditional and very common slurs the Woke hurl; 'Racist,' 'Far / Alt Right,' 'Facist,' 'Nazi,' ect.

Of course, only those truly 'Woke' could have no problem with associating dissenters with such horrible things as those above and, at the same time, feeling themselves victimized for being described by a fairly innocuous term, such as 'Woke,' a term they actually gave themselves.

Yet victimhood and lack of perspective is what being 'Woke' is all about so it's no surprise that the 'Woke' should get into a tizzy about their own name whilst reveling in freely associating other people with Nazism.

Hope that cleared up the confusion.

Self closing / push button taps that don't have a delay. You take longer, use more water and wash your hands less well than if they had a sensible delay of e.g. five seconds.

Mesh filters which fall off the tap head, making the head of the tap spray water at high pressure, meaning you either run the tap weakly or get water everywhere. Two days after the sink trap broke away and you had to replace it.

You’ve definitely proved a point.

Ha yes - the showers at my last work in Crawley used to do that, although if you leant out the door and waved your arms around frantically you could get it to come back on :D

I’m sure some clever dick found another way.

Booking a trip, then two weeks later getting an email from the airline saying they have changed your flights and seating on all four legs of the trip...

It's on American Airlines, and I see today they are cancelling all sorts of flights due to staff shortages... I assume it's related. So far I guess getting put on another flight is good news, albeit a tad inconvenient.

I wonder if he says "Si No" in his Spanish interviews?
