      lassie23

      my friend said f8 is a crap solution. Has the laptop been dropped?

    3. Mapantz

      HDD is the hard drive. After it's connected as a slave hard drive to another PC, you can access it as you would on a normal computer. Instead of C:\ it might be named G:\ or possibly Z:\

  2. And today my lovely friend who I've known since I was 12 and who I saw get married in 2014, has announced she is pregnant. It's very surreal to see the circle of life come to pass.

      It is weird to me, but my mother gave birth to me at 21 so I'm used to a relatively young mum.

  3. You carry on banging and crashing around the kitchen and talking at the top of your voice at 5 in the morning. No one is trying to bloody sleep or anything next door...

      There is nothing worse than noisey neighbours! I used to live next to a couple that liked to get drunk and argue till the morning!

  4. Did anyone see something on fire flying over London just now?

    1. Lauren

      Lauren

      It definitely was leaving a trail behind it so couldn't have been a lantern. Guess it wasn't anything serious as we'd have heard about it now.

      Nigel Farage AND Russel Brand, hopefully

  5. Anyone been to Dubai? What did you think?

  6. Why do people have those stupid letterboxes that are so stiff, they take your finger off just trying to stick a card through?

    1. Andy Bown

      Andy Bown

      I have the very same thought every working day!!

    2. Hocus Pocus

      Hocus Pocus

      That's probably why my Sunday Telegraph ends up looking like it's been set upon by a pack of rabid zombies. Note to self must change letterbox in the New Year.

  7. It's a sad state of affairs when the local Tesco Express has to have staff monitoring the disabled space because able bodied people keep parking in it.

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      you could have a heart condition too, yet appear able bodied

    2. Steve C

      Steve C

      Yes Daniel and Lassie and tbh in my area, disabled spaces are nearly always available. Maybe people are more selfish in Lauren's area?

    3. Lauren

      Lauren

      I know not all disabilities are visible, but there is only one space and I guess lots of people have complained about it. I think people think it's OK to park there if they are only quickly popping in.

  8. Does anyone know how to report a website?

    1. lfcdude

      lfcdude

      depends what country the site is based in

    2. Dale Hay

      Dale Hay

      I agree with 'lfcdude', it all depends where the website's server is held - if it's offshore, then practically nothing can be done.

    3. Lauren

      Lauren

      It's a blogspot website. It covers different people from all over the UK and actively encourages 'taking matters into your own hands'.

  9. Hoping for the best for those in Sydney.

      Seems it was a lone nutter who was in trouble with the police and wanted to go death by cop so did this and pretended it was in the name of IS.

    2. Styx

      not sure lauren, the man has been in the media previously for his extremist views and was on a police watch. may sway influence with others.

    3. Lauren

      Lauren

      That's what I meant an Islamic extremist anyway, but used the name of ISIS to make his suicide more 'acceptable'.

  10. Christmas decorations up, roast dinner and Christmas scented Yankee Candles to come later. Perfect Sunday.

      Put mine p on the 1st, like to get the most out of them! i avoid candles due to the fear of burning my house down!:-(

  11. The avgeek in me will be twitching everytime someone says aircraft are 'sitting on the runway' due to the ATC problems.

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      Don't sound like a geek

  12. Something that everyone should care to remember in the workplace is that you should be nice to those working their way up, because you might meet them again on the way down.

  13. So apparently the difference between rain and drizzle is that rain splashes on landing but drizzle doesn't.

      Where did this statement come from? A Richard Hammond type thing? I know the official definition is based on the size of the water particle but have no idea of any historical definition.

    2. Lauren

      Lauren

      Yes, but he said that was the official difference.

  14. I see the Scientology cruise ship is currently docked in Aruba.....poor Arubans.

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      LOL! It's high profile because of Tom Cruise and John Travolta! What a bunch of mugs!

    2. Lauren

      Lauren

      Quite possibly Barry, but the Scientology belief is just whacky. They also think Psychology and Psychiatry are evil practices!

  15. I cannot believe the sexism I am seeing around the web a a woman being in the Top 3 FIFA goal of the year. That was a phenomenal goal, why does it matter if a woman scored it?

  16. So it appears some at work still don't get my dry sense of humour and I've had to resort to saying 'I'm joking' all the time, which kind of ruins humour....

      Maybe you should report the person who reported you?

  17. I think I'm just being blind but can anyone point me to the archied thread for the awesome snow in the SE in 2010?

    1. Bishop Brennan

      Bishop Brennan

      Is the El Gordo thread somewhere? And/or El Brummo? Can't seem to find either of them.

    2. Lauren

      Lauren

      I just read El Gordo this morning. Just type 'El Gordo' into the search. Wasn't as exciting as I remembered.

      Paul as one said"I'm not even sure we had a SE thread in 2010"This about as close as i got

      found that in Weather Discussion and Chat, p75.Can't find Mod/Reg threads.

  18. I'm actually quite looking forward to it getting cold...

    1. Daniel*

      Daniel*

      Yes after this weekend it will get progressively cooler. Since its not cold enough for snow not much is being said. Seasonal start to the winter is always a good benchmark.

    2. lassie23

      lassie23

      Been very mild so far!:-(

    3. Mapantz

      Mapantz

      It'll be relative to where you are. Forecasted max temps here are no different to what they were on Tue/Wed/Thur.

  19. I really don't get the appeal of Black Friday. Standing in line for hours, getting trampled by a mob to pick up a 'bargain' that you can get throughout he year anyway!

    1. Lauren

      I know, it's baffling.

  20. Toad in the hole, roast potatoes, stuffing, veg and gravy. Perfect winter meal.

  21. Why do I keep seeig people saying we haven't had a frost yet? We've had frost here for a couple of weeks now!

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      Are they in the SE?

    2. Lauren
    3. lassie23

      lassie23

      I have had two frosts so far and i'm in London!

  22. Do you ever type out a log answer and the just think 'you know what? I can't be bothered' and delete it all?

  23. Just had a conversation with someone that doesn't believe bisexual is a real sexuality. They are just confused or 'gay deniers' apparently. Am I back in the 1980's?

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      Interesting, maybe that is why they are so anti gay, because they are in denial!

    2. Lauren

      It's an interesting topic. It was one of my favourites in my degree.

  24. I do find it interesting how when having a discussion with someone, it is completely baffling to some how one can agree with them, but be criyical of their on viewpoint too.

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      Don't tell me, you've been talking politics on here!

    2. Lauren

      Lauren

      No, just in real life. It's like some people cannot comprehend that you can lean to one side but still have criticisms of your stance. Do these people live in a world where everything is black and white?

  25. Heaviest rain overnight I've seen for years and it wasn't even forecast, nice surprise.

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      I heard there was thunder about too!
