This is like Windows 10/Lenovo Sleep Mode. It locks the PC completely. I hit on the solution by mistake by unplugging all leads/everything and leaving for 15 minutes. Apparently it detects attached leads and thinks it should still be asleep :wallbash: Reconnect, and it starts perfectly.

Second time it happened I knew the solution. I had to google how to amend Sleep Mode in Windows Fuucking Ten (to give it its proper technical name) to Sleep ---> Never in my sister's Proper Windows 7 PC due to the disappearing Control Panel in 10. It also confirmed my lucky solution on on Help sites. God preserve us from arsehole geeks and their new Windows versions.

Companies that phone you up and then expect YOU to answer security questions! Don't they know who they're calling?
Anyone could phone you up and you wouldn't know if they were genuinely who they said they were. You could end up giving out personal info to whoever.

If I was phoning a national company I'd expect them to ask me security questions so they could identify me which is fair enough.
I do get quite irritated when THEY phone me and expect me to answer THEIR security questions. They don't see the irony when I get the hump!

I speak to a company fairly frequently ,always the same woman. It normally goes something like . How are you Joe. Have you been on holiday ? Where did you go ? I've been there its lovely. Did your wife enjoy it. Blah blah blah. I need to ask you a few security questions before we start .

I’ve been scam-called by ‘BT’ a few times recently. I’ve started to tell them that I’d be delighted to talk to them but that they need to answer a few questions first. The obvious confusion when I ask them for the first, third & eighth characters of their password is rather marvellous....

This is a particular pet hate of mine and I refuse to answer. If they want to speak to me that urgently, they can bloody well do so on my terms, not theirs!

The same companies keep calling me about car insurance (when they get to the bit about the year and model of my car I say it’s a 2072 Star Fleet Star Ship Enterprise), health insurance (I either tell them I need coverage for 225 people in my cult or if they ask where my pain is I say ‘in my arse cheeks), or to advertise a business I don’t or have ever owned (they hang up when I say my name is Felonious Cheesemonkey).

Quite why my number hasn’t been blacklisted is beyond me)

Not sure if it’s the same there, but initially these companies used to call from central locations often miles away so you’d know not to bother answering. Then they started using multiple local numbers, so firstly you didn’t know it was a
cold call, and secondly if you blocked the number or asked to be taken off their list, they’d just call again on a different number.

Eventually I decided that if I wasn’t doing anything else I’d just waste as much of their time as they did mine, and hopefully be ‘red carded’ by them

As I'm at home a lot these days I get a lot of these. Our phones have call ID so if I don't recognise the number I ignore it. If they want me that's what a bloody answerphone is for. Easy:lux:

I have on a few occasions been phoned up by people claiming to be from a particular large company and who turned out to be anything but. Like the bloke who reckoned he was from Three, and I happen to have a Three phone, so after a couple of minutes of no I don't want whatever it was I asked him why I couldn't get a mobile signal in Princes' Street in Edinburgh. He immediately went completely bonkers. I've never heard anyone totally lose his shit so quickly. It was hilarious.

These have been on a landline with caller ID. I've not answered the calls and let them go to voice mail. Still annoying.

To be honest I don't answer the phone unless the name pops up and I recognize it (both land and cell) and I don't answer the door anymore now we have a camera (not that I did before).

I'm turning into a recluse, or should I say more of a recluse as I always have been somewhat of one. Regular Howard Hughes me.

Apologies Mr Afro but one of my pet hates is queues of cars for the pumps which match the caps on one side while the other pumps are deserted, because people don't seem to realise that the hoses can easily stretch across. Maybe that's not the case in the USA though.

The whole petrol station etiquette in the states totally threw me when I first went there. For those who don’t know, you have to go in first and tell the cashier what number your at and how much petrol you want - $60 on 4 please.

One day I did this and went to fill up but no petrol was coming out of the pump. Went back in to tell the cashier and then he’d realised he’d missed heard me and thought I said I was at pump 3. In the meantime some clever cock had somehow realised pump 3 was ‘live’ so filled up as quickly as he could, and as soon as he realised the cashier had clocked him, he drove off.

Felt bad for the cashier but he was really nice about it. Hoped he didn’t get in trouble with his boss over it.

I have a story from the other side... Although I should know better (I left The UK when I was 26) one time while back in England I picked up a hire car and stopped at the first petrol station to fill up. I went into the shop and gave the girl a £20 note and said something like, "£20 on 4 please". She looked at me funny and said, "You're not from around here are you?"

I have to smile every time I think of that.

The only thing wide about my vehicle is when I am sat in it.

Maybe because they are tight gits in Scotland they go with as short a hose as possible to make it achievable and then only if you have parked in exactly the right position by the pump.

Yes, my experience up here too. No matter how close you park to the pump you still end up having to hold the nozzle turned at a weird angle to reach your cap.

It’s probably a directive from the SNP, to squirrel away the extra bits of rubber to build Hadrian’s wall back up with once they’ve won independence. The stone they were going to use to rebuild it will be used instead by the guards at the wall to smash down desperate Englishman looking to flee Boris’s England.

They do that here in Spain, especially after 9pm. Trouble was so many places would put in 50euro (for example) and the pump would stop on 49.80. Theiving bastards

Just as well really because if it did work, they’d stop immediately once through the barrier to put the ticket back into their wallet. See also: people who stop at the top of the escalator to see where they’re going next

He's not as bad as Nihal whatever his name is. He sounds like an excitable 5th former trying to sound informed on an amateur radio station

True enough. I think I might already have had a moan about him a few pages back. 48 years old & trying way too hard to be 'dahn wiv da kidz'. Dickhead.

Oh fvcking hell do not get me started on Nihal whatever his name is. I’ve posted about him on here before

Sycophantic arsehole

Literally cannot stand the sound of his voice

Worst presenter 5live have ever had.

His show when Poch left Spurs and how upset it had made him was so bad I was expecting the BBC to have sacked him for the 3 hours of self indulgent nonsense he served up. He has certainly added to my list of reasons for why I hate Spurs.

He is so bad that I would rather listen to Alan Green commentaries for 24 hours non stop and without a loo break than listen to a Nihal show.

It is somewhat reassuring that despite the seemingly violent splits & factions on the BBS caused by Brexit/Benteke/packed lunches, we can all unite behind a common loathing of Nihal Whatshisname....

The fact that every transfer window we have expectations at the start as high as Ben Nevis and end up with Shirley Hills.

art malice 30-01-2020 10:41 PM

Constant tannoy at London Bridge telling people to ‘face direction of travel’ on the escalator

TopKnot 30-01-2020 11:33 PM

People on the transfer forum who say things like ‘I’m pretty sure we arent going to sign anyone else’ as if that’s some sort of profound insight. Who cares what your gut feelings say.

People who abandon their cars in the Screwfix / Toolstation car park in Purley Way.
The inconsiderate gits park on the yellow delivery loading hatchings or just block the entrance roads just to get a few feet closer to the shops ��

Don’t some prat in a souped up focus parked in a disabled bay. Yes there were loads free but that wasn’t the point. Just basic pratishness from loads of drivers I’m afraid.

CT_Palace 31-01-2020 12:05 AM

Slow walkers. Usually women.
Got stuck behind 4 of them today. I think they must have been heading back to work after lunch. I don't know how they do it.... it's like they're standing still but walking.

Or who park over the lines thus taking up two spaces. It takes a special kind if stupidity or arrogance to do this but still some manage it.

Ok confession. I did this last week I parked nose to nose with a car and wandered off to grab a sarnie at the supermarket. When I came back I realised the spaces where staggered and I had indeed taken two spaces. If there was anyone about to apologise to I would have but instead slunk away and hoped no one saw :)

Pat of the Palace 31-01-2020 07:38 AM

People who drag their mini suitcases along causing a tremendous racket when they could easily be carried in silence.

Brexit day!

23:00 tonight.

The deadline for Brexit AND the Transfer window will be a double disappointment.

That was the story :p How on earth was it news? Of course she was devastated!

I heard it on the not-BBC radio so it's not just them

People cracking their knuckles, fingers etc loudly in front of me like the tw@t sitting opposite me just has on the train. Ugh.

Im all in favour of our broadcasting media to be representative of our cultural diversity (with the exception of scousers and anyone called Robbie Savage) but i do expect presenters to be mildly competent in their profession. Having the mental capacity of a 5 year old does not lend itself to compelling listening

Darren Anderton did one year, jettisoning his move to Aston Villa

Apple forcing me into an update as apps cease working. I DONT WANT ******* MEMOJI that makes everything run slowly. Next stop Android.

Martin H 31-01-2020 12:36 PM

This fuffing stupid thing the Sky presenters are doing where they hold the ipad up to their faces and it selects the 'imaginary transfer destination for them'. WTF are they thinking. I know they have to talk all day about f***'all but this is pathetic even by their standards.

Hedgehog 31-01-2020 05:01 PM

Community landscapers firing up their leaf blower at 6:45am right outside our bedroom window... bastards.

(I appreciate this is probably a reasonable time if you are of the working class, but us retired people live in a different time zone)

in-exile 31-01-2020 07:09 PM

I use a leaf blower to dry the S class after washing ... all part of not touching the paintwork.

cappuccinoeagle 01-02-2020 12:12 AM

Just heard some fireworks, presumably Brexit wankers.
