Technically that's theft by finding - a criminal offence. 

 

Nah - it's more "finders keepers, losers weepers"!

My wi-fi is back. Did I miss anything while I was gone?

I have got a new laptop :D 

 

This is lovely because:

The old one when firing up was festooned with enough coloured lines to be worthy of a Fair Isle jumper, and is need of end-of-life care.

I have managed to transfer all my files successfully, and saved them on to a hard drive.

I have managed to load all the apps and software I want, including one so old I didn't think it would work, but it does.

It has a 17 inch screen :) which is fabulous as I never need to go full screen with all the inconveniences that entails.

 

I just hope it lasts a good few years like the last one has.

Seeing exactly this right now with my trusty 6-year-old MacBook Pro. The battery has started dying at 40% charge too :blink:

 

I’ll soon be getting a new one but I’m looking at over 3 grand for the spec I need :angry:

 

Doesn't half feel nice though having a shiny new toy.

What's the current wisdom re batteries?  Is it best to let them run down and recharge, or to keep them on charge whenever possible?

I've heard it's best to keep the battery level in the middle (say, between 40 and 80%). Doing a full charge from single digits is the norm, but worsens the efficiency of your battery.

From a local Facebook page .... an unpleasant chav couple have been ranting that someone knocked down their kids' snowman.  It got really nasty, with threats issued, and a ridiculous number of people chiming in saying how dreadful it was, how mean, such evil people about.  And the kids being offered sweets and toys to ease their grief. 

 

Then a neighbour posted footage from his CCTV showing the snowman collapsing by itself. :lol:

So I spilled red wine on my apartment’s light beige carpet.  Did my best to dab it up and clean it despite my inebriated state.  ‘Twas an utter fail.  And there the red stain sat for about 5 months.  
 

I had to avoid paying for a new carpet when moving out so I went online and came across ‘Wine Away’ (they spent decades coming up with that name).  I could only buy it one place in town and so I did.  Wee bottle, but I did as instructed, spraying about 25 times and after 20 minutes I scrubbed with a dry towel and ‘fuck me runnin’ if the 5-month old embedded red wine stain didn’t disappear.  Some got on my Asian rug too, and I thankfully got the same result.

 

10/10 highly recommended.  Not that any of YOU ever spilled red wine :rolleyes:

Pouring some white wine on top of it always worked for me.  Somehow they cancel each other out.
