Sorry to hear that.

Puts my moan into perspective and that is online council planning meetings - been going on for 7 hours so far just had comfort break number 3!! The only plus is it's online and I'm not sitting in a stuffy committee room in the Civic Hall.

I am so sorry to hear your news Daddy. I hope your colleague on the ventilator pulls through and that the rest of you stay safe.

Jo <hugs>

No - but she's been mentioned a few times on the private skype channel the council officers use behind the zoom meeting! Still ongoing - over 8 hours now, by far the longest planning meeting the council has ever had!!

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

My sister just phoned: The washing machine has flooded her kitchen. From her description of the fact that the water stopped when she turned it off sounds like the pipe from the water inlet valve to the drum or soap dispenser has split/come off. Because the programmer is waiting for the signal that the drum is filled it just keeps the water going.

Unfortunately she's over 30 miles away so with lockdown I can't really go and take a look so she's going to get a plumber in on Monday to see what he can do.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Going to have to get some reading glasses.
I saw a headline in the paper 'Hitler found alive in the Italian Alps'. Thought this was very surprising but it wasn't a tabloid. I was just trying to work out what age he must be when I squinted a bit.more and the true headline was revealed.....

Then there are the ones that want to charge you to access the information. I wish there was a setting I could click that would stop these sites showing up in my searches.

I don't mind sites like that as long as the ads are not obtrusive. After all, even if they give you information for free, they still have to pay bills. They pay for hosting, hardware, software and sometimes pay costs to obtain the information.

This site, for instance, is funded by the advertisements. Otherwise, you'd be asking the Admin and Moderation team to pay for hosting so you could post.

My moan?

My ipad battery has failed. I am angry because I purchased this refurbished iPad from the same repair company (who are quite a large, reliable company who we use at work for our Apple repairs) last May after the battery in my original iPad failed, and the motherboard developed a fault that prevented it booting reliably.

They say the battery is fine, but one of the enclosures is bent. This is what I am angry about. I've treated the iPad extremely carefully, keeping it in a hardened case. In fact, the only time I removed it from that case was so I could send it back to the repairer. I'd argue that if anything is bent, it's happened either in their office, or in their courier's van. They are offering to sell me another refurbished iPad for half the price of a new one, but bearing in mind that the refurbished iPad comes with a 3 month warranty, and a new one will have both a better spec, and a 12 month warranty for £200 or so more (assuming they offer the full £215 for recycling my old iPad), I'm tempted to go for new.

BTW, before you suggest a cheap Android tablet, we already have a kindle in the house and, TBH, I don't like it. Plus I have too many iPad apps I am unwilling to give up.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Being deaf I rely on the subtitles to follow a program.
Why do the broadcaster stop the subtitle display frequently (in a live program) then when subtitles restart there is then a mad scramble to catch up with the spoken dialogue.
