Dear Blind Eagle

My good self has not made any modifications to the fencing, other than to install "Barbed wire" on the top to ward off intruders.:hi: Doesn't ward off that ruddy 'Moggy'':wallbash::wallbash: I cannot foresee any ruddy fox leaping like a salmon to scale my fence whose height is within the legal limits.:wallbash::wallbash::mad:

This is going to make me sound like an old git living in the past (i.e. accurate!) as it's a whinge about modern-day footballers, but something that is annoying me greatly at the moment is listening to the players, without the benefit of crowd noise hiding it, virtually screaming every time they get touched. They go down like a sack of shit, crying out as if they've been shot, before jumping back up again 20 seconds later. These are grown men, not kids, and I know they're only doing it because in their pea-sized tiny minds they think that a loud enough cry of pain might help them get the foul given their way. The worst offender I've seen/heard for doing it is probably Jordan Ayew, but plenty of others do it too.

Or is it just me that it pisses off?

Not just you, last night there were several players (both sides) rolling around like that. It's really odd. The other football thing that gets me is the placement of the ball for corners. Just put it in the bloody quadrant, stop pissing about getting as close to the edge as you can, what's the point?

Hedgehog 22-07-2020 02:10 AM

I've touched on this before, but it went up a notch today...

There is a bike path along the beach front in Santa Monica, CA. It's always been a bit of an issue with mixed use, although it is clearly marked for bikes only.

Over the last 6 months they have been uparading a good few miles of the path, and is now, I'm guessing 8 metres wide with two 2 metre lanes for bikes, and the other 4 metres for mixed use. I suspect these improvements cost a few million bucks at least.

Yet today... there were still joggers, walkers and pushchair pushers using the bike lanes.

Not sure if people just have their heads up their arses, are ignorant, stupid, obstinate or what. I can't even blame foreign tourist for this due to the pandemic.

I guess you can lead a horse to water and all that...

As the player that used to take a lot of the corners for my old gits team, I do actually understand wanting to get the ball as far from the corner flag as possible. Just like having the yips while standing over a golf putt, if I got it into my head that the ball was too close to the flag so I might kick the flag (I never did), I'd invariably scuff the corner; just a mental thing. Either that or I was just crap at taking corners (except I wasn't really, or I wouldn't have had to take them most of the time.)

Dear Pallet

I too find this ruddy annoying.One can appreciate a "One-off" owing to traffic,transport delays and the like but when someone persists in not keeping to time on a regular basis this is downright disrespectful.I have fallen out with those of this ilk and have 'nowt' to do with them anymore.My good self is always early, the "Early bird catches the worm" and all that, and I am fastidious about time-keeping.:wallbash::wallbash:

I always shout at the phone 'if my call is so important, have some more staff answering the calls then!'

It's almost as if someone says - 'we know what the standard volume of calls is, per day, plus we could staff it to that level and then people wouldn't have to wait too long ..................... bugger it, they can wait'. :wallbash:

Or....there's a global pandemic on and staff re either furloughed, sacked, working from home or working staggered shifts.

I know that I am getting older and hopefully not reached Victor Meldrew heights, but a few years ag I moved from Purley where we were surrounded by umpteen train lines and sirens going off at all times. We moved to a more rural setting. The noise not being the reason, but you might assume that things would be quieter. I now swear that there is not one moment of the day when someone is mowing, strimming, leaf blowing, taking down a tree or sawing. As I speak somebody close by is sitting on a land rover of a mower. We have a neighbour who keeps his hound outside and it barks at every fox. At night the wildlife decide to murder each other with the accompanying screeching and in the morning the pidgeons only have one tune. This is country life. Oh and the locals like to shoot stuff and hang it up until it's on the bugle!

Expensive hi fi equipment that doesn't come with any ******* leads.

Yeah obviously I have rolls of speaker wire and a wire trimmer just randomly lying around the ******* house when I didn't own an amp or speakers. That's why I got the ****ers in the 1st place.

Also user manuals for hifi equipment. This one reads like the transcript of an aspergic 15 year olds fever dream.

I just want to plug it in and listen to some music you weird ******* freaks.

The price of deisel going up for no reason.
Having to wear a face mask in a shop, if it was gping to stop anything why has it not been manatory since the end of lockdown?
The british weather, its meant to be summer.
Feeling grumpy.

Saw a few of those today. Got the impression that a bunch of people wear them to get past whatever security there is and then just drop them off their faces. It's unenforceable, and there are plenty willing to disregard it. The government are being ignored, and they are aware of it. They just need to be seen to be imposing measures.

Like what? They'll hit some bird up with a 200 quid fine and the press will have a field day. They'll find out she's supporting nine kids and can only afford pajamas to wear out. They'll then compare her fine to the slap on the wrist the Peaceful demonstrators got for attacking old Bill and looting the local shoe shop for necessary essentials.

It won't get as far as fines. In Boris World, the imposition is announcing the rule, not actually enforcing it.
The only manifestation will be rows/fisticuffs between shoppers/shop staff/security, with the old bill possibly turning up later to clear up the mess.

Printers.

Got an HP 3730 and the thing guzzles ink like you wouldn’t believe. After what feels like a small amount of printouts at very average quality, it starts flashing manically and saying it’s out of ink. At nearly £30 for both colour and b/w cartridge I’m scared to bloody use the thing for fear of that light flashing again.

Are all printers money grabbing scams or did the guy at PC World sell me a dud?

Have you looked into the monthly ink plan HP ? Instant Ink I think they call it.

I've got a HP envy 5546 and use their HP Instant ink package. Basically, a choice of different schemes for different monthly usage. I pay £3.49/month and get up to 100 copies/month with up to 200 unused copies being rolled over on to the next months. They monitor the cartridges and just post them out as and when.

So effing annoying. Without fail, swear at the radio whenever I hear one.

That’s interesting cheers. Would take that up if I was printing regularly, but tend to leave it for months then have a few weeks where I need to do loads and that’s when the cartridge companies coin it in. But even so, £3.49 a month isn’t bad.

One of their options is less than £3.49/month.

Got an HP 3730 and the thing guzzles ink like you wouldn’t believe. After what feels like a small amount of printouts at very average quality, it starts flashing manically and saying it’s out of ink. At nearly £30 for both colour and b/w cartridge I’m scared to bloody use the thing for fear of that light flashing again.

Are all printers money grabbing scams or did the guy at PC World sell me a dud?

Wife goes to the market yesterday. Buys a lot of wine.

Gets home and asks me to unload the 6 bags from her boot.

First 3 are double brown bagged and obviously contain 3 bottle of wine each. Carefully lift each bag with a hand underneath for safety.

Next 2 bags contain general supplies and are only single bagged.

Last bag is also a single, and all I can see is a box of blueberry muffins and some bananas. I lift the bag out the boot thinking to myself this is heavy.... before I can take evasive action the handles give way and the bag fall to the ground... cue breaking glass and wine running down the driveway.

Apparently this bag was not only single bagged, but contained 4 bottles of wine... 2 smashed and 3 survived.

Of course it was my fault... never judge a book by it's cover!

2+3=5. Is this some kind of miracle where 4 bottles of wine becomes 5?

Hedgehog 27-07-2020 06:12 AM

Things that annoy you
 
Ops... 2 survived, fat fingers....

But yes, I wish....

Why, when a match is on, does the BBS forum jump facility disappear?

Since the restart the BBS servers have at times been under severe strain because there have been so many more BBSers logging in to the matchday threads.

There are a few things that can be tweaked to help prevent the BBS from keeling over in these sort of situations and temporarily losing the Forum Jump facility is one of them, that's all.

Is there a printer out there than you can just buy ink for at a reasonable price ?

Iíd also like to qualify that picking up and putting the bagged muck in a street refuse bin does not offer absolution to the owner. Theyíre intended for Coca Cola tins and crisp packets, not stinking canine faeces.

No it was Hedgehog's landscape gardener Jesus, who miraculously turned a bottle of Evian water into a bottle of top shelf Chardo;)

I mostly click on the New Posts tab to keep up with what's current.

If I want to go to a specific forum I click on "CPFC BBS" in the string in the ribbon at the top which takes me to the forums page, then click on the forum I want to look in.

Doesn't seem a lot different than scrolling to the bottom of the page to get to the list of forums.

I'll take a test drive of the Forum Jump anyway... if I can remember!
