Forced Random Stuff

2 weeks ago, for day 363 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ†

I haven't done any work for the company that employs me since Dec 19th. Initially it was because I was visiting my parents and my daughter, then Festivus, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. When the 27th came around I hadn't done any work and while tempted I forced...

Millennium iFixIt

On the day after Christmas Day (known as Boxing Day in the UK and many British Commonwealth countries) it occured to me that I didn't receive anything to read for Christmas. Books are a common staple for gifts and I gave two people books, yet I didn't receive any. I...

Food Über

Today was a lazy day. I'm on vacation / holiday so should be getting some rest and relaxation. We're in the third of our five hotels with everything being good so far. The windows don't open, which is annoying as I always like fresh (outside) air, especially when sleeping. Without...

Glasto Baby

My wife informs me that nobody says "Glasto baby", they may say "Vegas baby" although I thinks the whole "... baby" has been stolen from Austin Powers "Yeah! baby". Matt Smith did say "Glastonbury, what up baby? when he introduced and then joined Orbital to play the Dr Who...

In Part 1 I described how I spilled a drink on my keyboard, the fact that the up arrow key now no longer worked as it should I was hopeful that the keyboard would dry out and the up arrow key would stop triggering the F6 key. Meanwhile I...

Wonky F6 (Pt 1/2)

Today I did something that I do every few years. I knocked over a can of something spilling a bunch of it on my external keyboard. A quick mop up exercise ensued for damage control. I lost a few pages of my yellow pad (which doubles as a mouse mat),...

The Best Made Plans of Money.

Previously in my updates about losing things, this morning I remembered I had a Revolut card that I meant to bring on this UK trip. I have a different UK bank account and associated multi-currency debit card, however I was also interested in giving my Revolut card a go. Note:...
