That’s much better than my Giphy!

My sister, who was (is?) an actual CHEF, once set fire to her chest exactly like that (luckily escaped bad injury: was mostly foam bra padding that caught).

I received on of those bogus text messages, purporting to be from O2 and stating that they hadn't been able to process my last payment.

After a fairly shitty day, it gave me some satisfaction to reply thus.

The pumpkin we got specifically said it was a carving pumpkin rather than an eating pumpkin so be careful

I believe that most carving pumpkins are edible, but horrible. Obviously, check before poisoning yourself.

I have just found that HP/Apple have fucked up my printer/scanner, which is poor timing as I need to scan my expense receipts for my monthly claim. I'm going to have to photograph them all instead.

Bastards.

Edit. They might have done me a favour; it's much quicker to photograph them than scan them. I just hope our accounts people don't refuse to accept them.

I use the one drive app. As it allows you to scan with your phone. Made doing my expenses a lot easier.

You can scan in the Notes app on an iPhone or iPad

I shall look into this, ta.

It wouldn't be an issue if the company would invest in an expenses app of some sort.

Fujitsu introduced one a couple of years before we moved to the current bunch of cowboys, which processed photos of your receipts straight into a claim. This lot still require us to enter the details on a spreadsheet, but it's all locked down and there are only five lines for parking claims with VAT, and five without VAT, so every month I end up having to use at least two spreadsheets.

Prior to Covid we had to post the printed form and receipts to our practice manager's home address. Lockdown threw them into a panic as they didn't want any physical paperwork sent as it could be infected, so now we have to scan receipts and convert the spreadsheet(s) to signed PDFs and email them instead.

The issue with the Apple/HP fiasco was just one of several instances of the devil pissing on my chips yesterday. Firstly, my company laptop was dead. Fixed by removing the battery and pressing the power button for a few secs, then the Apple/HP screw up, and then iTunes decided that some songs on the album I bought over the weekend weren't authorised to be played on the W10 laptop I'd downloaded them on to. I only discovered that when the copy I'd put on my iPod only played three tracks even though they all appeared to have been copied across. I still haven't found a solution to that, as authorising that laptop didn't fix it.

Oh, and the W10 laptop is borrowed from my sister in law. It's a Lenovo Snail. Takes at least five mins to get to the desktop and two or three taps on any shortcut before the associated app deigns to open, but at least I can still use iTunes to manage the music on my iPod Classic.

Aaaannnnnndddd. BREATHE.

Update. I can scan via the Lenovo Snail, and iTunes problem was solved by “repurchasing” the album, which was free, of course.

You can all rest easy now.

You should report them. Shipping live animals is not part of amazon's shipping policy. Also, human/animal genetic splicing is illegal in the UK.

iPhone Mini review

I'm ready for this. Well, I'm not ready for an iPhone because I'm stuck firmly in the Android ecosystem now. But I'm ready for the return of sensibly sized phones.

My Huawei Pro 20* is simply too big, too much of the time. Tighter jeans, jackets with shallower pockets, running sleeve, cycling top.

It's lovely for watching tv on, but I do that less now I don't commute so much.

Just need one of the decent Android manufacturers to make a decent non-massive phone with an excellent camera.


*or something - I genuinely don't know, and I've had it for nearly 18 months. In fact, I think this is the first phone I've ever owned that I haven't known the name of

In the past, I've toyed with the idea of getting a properly small phone as a secondary device - just something for doing the basics with like receiving notifications and emails. Something like this at under 12cm. Although there are smaller ones like the Palm Phone at under 10cm, although they're more expensive. Can't really justify it at the moment though.
