People constantly sniffing on public transport. And in particular when they (usually us men), make that back of the nose noise when you sniff. Ignorant cubits. Just take some tissues with you and blow your nose normally.

Salad_Burnet 01-02-2020 09:14 PM

People thinking that just because the staff in the Jerk Chicken place near Selhurst Park are black and some are holding meat cleavers that they have to go in there with an attitude, like mumbling, pushing-in, sniffing loudly, talking a bit "street" like, and louring at everyone.

Hedgehog 01-02-2020 11:36 PM

The trifecta of annoyance today... Palace lost, Bromley lost and Charlton won. Plus for an added bonus Brighton didn't lose.

At least the weather is nice here today...

andyocpfc 02-02-2020 05:33 PM

Yesterday on the train back from the game. There was a bloke sitting opposite me with headphones on plugged into a laptop and he was singing out loud. It made the whole hour and half journey unnecessarily uncomfortable. Why would you do that? He was a normal sort of guy, but massively over confident.

I'm guessing in this tennis context lockdown would be like sewing up (or is that sewn up?) - finishing out the match.

In a different context "lockdown" is what they do when there is a shooter or perpetrator on the loose, and you lock yourself in a safe place - no one comes in or leaves, especially prevalent to school shootings, and apparently knife wielding terrorist in London.

But looking it up, apparently it has social media meanings... so forget the above.

Ha, I know. I was sitting next to my 5 year old Daughter so definitely not but I canít say I wasnít tempted to say something to him (especially being angry at the result. The Carriage on the whole was quiet, which made it all the more uncomfortable. My daughter was watching YT musical (Disney) videos with headphones too but I always ensure sheís respectful to other travellers and if she starts to sing/talk out loud I put her right, straight away. He still didnít twig but was too engrossed in his own voice I suppose. As Bert said, maybe he was coked up.

Thereís a similar one- knobs playing videos on their phones without earphones or headphones- increasingly prevalent.

F*ck knows what it means with tennis, but usually someone will say 'I've got this on lockdown (or sometimes just 'lock')' to mean they've got it under control.

I don't say that, i should add...

Definitely - whether heís good at signing or not is irrelevant to me, itís unsociable and in an enclosed space like that made everyone around few awkward. Itís just unnecessary.

Tell you what I find annoying when it comes to singing, is when youíre in the car with someone listening to music and they bloody sing along. Donít mind the odd line being joined in with badly, but the whole bloody song? Rather sit in silence.

We watched the Sound of Music at Christmas, which is dull enough in itself (3 hours ffs), but made even worse by my sister singing every word of every song.

Accepting a job with some reservations and knowing pay-rise was minimal, because I fancied a change and was a better job title and then have 1/2 my team resign when I was serving my notice from last job leaving me currently deeply in the shit.

Also on a related note literally anyone who currently or has ever worked in any form of HR-related role.

ME - You're telling me if someone started singing out loud (with headphones on) on a packed train in front of you, you would embrace it and suck it up happily for over an hour or so?

I guess so many people think "of" is an auxiliary verb because it sounds like "have", but that is no excuse.

Locking myself out of my house with nobody home.

Had to take a pee in a flower pot in the back garden, then walk 2.5 miles to where my wife was (she couldn't leave) and get her key. Almost there it crosses my mind I could have called an Uber, then realized my credit card on file had expired and I didn't know the new security code number.

Walking not so bad other than it is probably the coldest day of the year with a chilling wind, plus halfway home I start really needing to take a poo. Made it home just in time.

I'm going to nominate myself for the Darwin awards...

Sorry thay was poorly written. Half the team I've taken over have quit between me accepting role and starting. Unfortunately it's same company but different department so not a clean break.

Shit happens but it's annoying to have your initial misgivings not only proved correct but also greaty exceeded in reality.

He's got a flat cap on with a Red white blue Mod badge - so he could be a train/tube driver. Just got off at Wimbledon.

But there was Everton's 'Silvaball' where the players just kicked the ball between themsevles until it went out of touch and also Newcastle's 'Shearerball' which was very cutting edge stuff.

Adults who refer to someone as their 'Bestie'. Pet owners who call themselves mummy or daddy. You are not f*cking related to your pet. If you are, you're a freak, and probably guilty of a crime.

This. I've done it after a nightshift. My last digs was in a pub and afterI left my mate that is staying in the same digs has been switched to nights, he has been given keys to the bar for him and and a bloke that stays across the road (also on nights) to get some beers on an honesty system when they get home.

When you are talking to someone, be it voice or email, and you say or sign your name i.e. Michael, and the other person comes back calling you Mike.

I'm fine with being called Mike if I say that's what my name is, but something about people taking liberties jiggles me. Oh well, I guess worse things happen at sea.

P.S. My name is not Michael or Mike. I used that for demonstration purposes only! :D

Finding out that photos and videos on SD cards on android phones are not automatically backed up to google drive or samsung cloud like you thought they were, and then losing 4 years of precious pictures and vids after the card decides to go belly up for no apparent reason :( :( :sob: :sob: Gutted.

Only hope is that I can recover it from a windows PC - but I can't get to one at the moment. Fingers crossed.

There are some decent photo recovery apps and software out there, whether you can save them as originally formatted depends on the corruption or deletion. Main thing is not to use the card until recovering the photos. If the card is not recognised then it may still be usable just the device cannot recognise it as a drive needs pointing in the right direction.
In my photographing days there used to be companies that specialised in data recovery, not sure now if they still do or at what cost?

If these are as precious as they sound I would probably look at the recovery services. Looks like they still exist but as ever, important to find the decent one rather than the cheapest one.

Not much help I know but I bounce my photos automatically into the cloud with Dropbox and amazon photo these days. Good luck

Only hope is that I can recover it from a windows PC - but I can't get to one at the moment. Fingers crossed.

I've used Ontrack software a few times over the years, it's never let me down. Good luck!

Something about Maidstoned exposing himself.

Thanks all, tried to load the Micro SD card via an adapter into two different windows PCs and neither was recognised at all. I did find a backup from June 2018 so I've only lost a year and a half of stuff, and I'm still holding out some hope that I can get something to 'see' the rogue card - but it does look pretty much dead.

Jonathan Ross , he’s a smarmy git .

That Scottish (#@t on talksport between 10-1 he does the sky sports news as well the man is so bloody annoying.. the only decent ones in there are h and j...have quite a few of the palace comedians journos on there ..always decent. And Natalie Sawyer to much of a sort for radio.

Jim White. I don't get how he seems to have done so well - no one appears to like him.

Agree. He used to a bit cutting edge, now heís just a smug twat.
Prefer Graham Norton.

Disagree. He just winds people up and it makes for stupid, but entertaining radio.

My wife made me get a new desk chair. The old one was a bit shabby, yes, but it was molded to my contours after hours of posting rubbish on the BBS and watching (previously listening) to endless Palace games on-line. Everything just felt comfortable about it.

Hating the new one so far, nothing feels right about it.

Ticehurst 07-02-2020 12:09 AM

Talksport is the daily Star of radio if you listen to some of there things they do on there quiz wise it's embarrassing ..I remember that moose saying sessingon will be worth one hundred ..Dean Saunders isn't on there anymore and Jermain pennaint has been tin tacked because of mister miners..

Sort of as a result of some discussion on this thread about loosing files and backing up, I download Dropbox (It came with 8GB free with another software I purchased today).

So far seems very easy to use, but boy does it bring my internet to a screeching halt while it's syncing the thousands of files I'm putting in there.

I just paused the process, just to check out the BBS here.

One thing I'm a bit disappointed with so far is the fact it does not over-write existing files that have not changed, but duplicates them. Although having said that, I'm sure there are occasions where this would is desirable. I'm thinking of having folders named by date so the older folder can be deleted when a new back-up is done.

It also seems that to do an automatic back-up to Dropbox you have to use a third party software. I'll have to think about that one.

I bought an external hard drive today for about $70 as I had lots of, ahem, films and tv series clogging up my Macbook memory.
2TB capacity . Drag and drop. Smooth fast and very easy.

I have a Western Digital external hard drive that I was using for backing up everything, but thought this Dropbox might a) be easier (no plugging in) and b) as it's on the desktop might make me do a back-up more often. But so far I would say the ED is quicker and I'm pretty sure it overwrites files, and as you say easier to use, although frankly both very easy.

Currently the Dropbox pop-up is telling me it is going to take 2 days to sync! The ED takes a couple of hours tops.

I have had Dropbox for a while now with the free service because I only use it for backing up photos etc. I also use Amazonís free photo service to do the same Ďjust in caseí one of them ditches the free bit. That works pretty well so far, automatically picking them up as I take them on my phone and dropping them in. I back all of the rest up on a series of servers I run in the house for different reasons. I have a lot of 5k or 6k albums, cd quality and above that I have bought over the years and a chunk of them hi- res and I have 4 copies of those and normally a 5th offsite :) (although itís currently here temporarily).

I have had the odd problem with duplication of files on Dropbox but itís tended to be the lesser of two evils and TBH made sense. Itís never been a big enough problem for me to go looking for an answer but I would think there is one. Itís just very handy when I want to share something with someone I donít know particularly well. Or get something from them. They have that nailed. It also means I can easily access it all wherever I am if I can get to a browser. The same is true of my servers as long as my home network isnít for some reason in a heap. :)
