    Energy Prices

    Their energy firms are nationalised and the government have protected the public from the huge increases. The best bit is that EDF, the French energy company, made £106million profit in the UK last year.

    Right. Well these bastards can consider themselves reported. Thanks.

    Any streams to report to the authorities?

    Things kids say

    My 10 year old is already doing heroin. They shoot up pretty quick these days don’t they?

    Have you had Covid 19 yet?

    Back in March I had fever and fatigue but no cough or loss of taste/smell. A test wasn’t an option at the time so I don’t know for sure. However, a mate who I spent time with shortly before I got ill was really sick and later tested positive for antibodies. Probably had it. Will never actually know. Got off lightly if I did.

    People who pronounce the word says as 'SAYS' instead of 'SEZ'.

    I am man: hear me roar!!!

    Try soak.com. It's online only (I think) but the stuff I've got from there has been good value and very decent quality. Also iBathUK on eBay.

    MS Office

    Yeah for sure. I haven’t come across any issues with formatting, personally. When you first start it, you’ll need to go into settings to make it default to save to .xls and .doc but that’s it. Worth a try if thats all you’re going to be using it for, and it if doesn’t work out for you then get MS Office. My personal preference is Libre Office, for what it’s worth.

    MS Office

    They’ve withdrawn support for 2010(11) now I think so the obvious answer is to go for 2016. However Office 2016 is the worst piece of crap that Microsoft have ever developed. Which is really going some! Any particular reason why you wouldn’t use Libre or Open Office instead? Both free and both great.

    I asked my wife to pleasure me with her keyring. She's just fobbing me off.

    Macbook Pro

    I've got the 2016 one with the flatter keys and it's really nice to type on. Just a case of getting used to it. If you're used to Apple keyboards generally, you'll find it a breeze. That being said, sometimes osngiv eomg epfk pekfjgp epr.

    Internet Help

    Yeah sorry mate, just seen this. They usually come with the cables and I'm still using ones I bought about 3 years ago with no issues. If you can, try to make sure you plug them directly into the wall socket. They will work through an extension or 4-way but it's not as good. Also, you can use however many you want around the house, but just be aware that you'll need the same ones as different brands tend to use different tech.

    Internet Help

    If you move the router and use a long telephone wire then you will most likely get signal degradation and noise on the line. Not saying it isn't worth a go for a few quid, but the telephone cables degrade the signal while ethernet cables do not. Home plugs mate. I use them for IPTV and they're great. No need to lift the carpet or run a wire round the house.

    Childrens Movies you Begrudgingly enjoyed

    The 2 most recent Muppets films are very good, and the songs are written by Brett McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords. No begrudgery about it. They're dead good.

    I'm sure this has been mentioned but when people ordering coffee say 'Can I get a...?'. My sister in law is a fucker for it. The other day we went to a cafe for lunch and she orders everything normally until the coffee which she apparently wants to 'get'. She's not up for getting her sandwich but she really wants to fetch her own coffee. Oh, and Americans who say "I could care less" when they mean the exact fucking opposite.

    Extending a wireless signal.

    They're great. I use them at home and at my workplace. Very reliable, and on the very odd occasion they fail, you just....... wait for it.... turn them off an on again. Much better than wifi extenders.

    The world of a woman.

    Was looking at a portable charger yesterday on Amazon: Q: What is the weight of this item? A: Very good. Thanks Tricia. Very helpful. Oh, and obviously the weight of the item is clearly stated in the ad. I can't say for sure that the question was posed by a woman... but it was, wasn't it?

    I bought my wife a fridge for valentines. I wasn’t sure if she’d like it but you should have seen her face light up when she opened it.
