My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

Heeheehee fixed my bar end...

 

I should have been using an allen socket and wrench from the start really. Anyway, I used an old GuzziHero trick.

 

If you have an allen bolt that is rounded, get a Torx that is slightly larger, hammer it in. You key the bolt into being a Torx instead. :)

Job websites and bad descriptions.

 

So I'm looking for a job, and I'm a recent graduate..

It lists - Optics technician - Perfect Graduate Opportunity

And I think, I can do that, I can do that very well..

 

Look further..

Minimum 2 years experience in professional environment.

 

I'm sorry, but how is it a perfect opportunity for grads if you require 2 years of experience? I keep coming across these listings and its driving me nuts. How am I meant to get / have experience if no one will employ me in the first place?

 

Bah.

 

 

AND the cats brought a bird in this morning and I woke upto the kitchen being covered in feathers and guts. Fun.

My brother.

My mum told him she was clearing out the old computer today, but he buggered off early.

She then found his 3 gb porn folder. Which was so big it couldn't be deleted as a folder.

I thought it was as funny as *fruitcage* until I was told I had to go through it deleting over 1300 items

 

Pshh tis nothing. I had a friend in high school who had a computer with two 256s internally and an external 500. He accumulated so much porn that one day when he tried to turn on his computer it crashed because there wasnt enough free space for start up operations. He had to take it in because he simply could not turn on his computer at all. He got it back and all the memory was erased and he said all he could think about was how the techs that worked on it must have started to work on it and saw that it was all because he had almost a terrabyte of porn.

That kind of thing is why you have one disk solely for System use.

 

Fill the others up with whatever takes your fancy - games, music, videoes.... porn...

 

Leave Drive C alone. :waggle:

The ending to Sherlock. Anyone been watching, it's been very good but the ending to the last episode has totally ruined the whole thing for me. Lazy writers couldn't be bothered to think up an exit plan.

Found an injured and quite distressed kitten last night, couldn't be any more than 3 months old.

 

She's lovely, and we don't mind looking after her since she was quite clearly lost and couldn't find her way home, so we put up some "found kitten" signs around the neighbourhood and round the perimeter park since we live on the edge of a country park.

 

Less than 4 hours, and some little scrotes have ripped half of them down.

 

 

Seriously, what is the *fruitcage* point in that?

 

Absolutely no gain from it, yet they're potentially depriving a loving family of their lovely kitty.

Its a sign, you should keep said kitty :P But they're a bunch of bellends for ripping down signs like that. I'm sure as kids if their cat/dog/donkey ran away/got lost they'd have cried their eyes out.

 

On more cat related stuff:

People presume where I live is a farm and we have had many cats dumped on our doorstep because their owners don't want them anymore.

 

Problem is the dumped cats are very scared and unsociable, so scrounge a *suitcase* living sneaking in to eat food and running off again. Currently there's a giant black and white tom nicking food, cant try and socialise him because he bolts as soon as he see's a person :(

 

Another beautiful cat got dumped here last year, she was pregnant and we found her with her litter near the workshop. Porblem again, if kittens dont socialise with humans quick they become wild and there is little you can do to change it. The kittens were *fruitcage* mental when we found them, my uncle got bit pretty bad trying to round em up.

 

There should be tests before people can own animals, if they get bored of their cat, or dont want to deal with kittens why keep animals in the first place :(

Now i dont usually rant about films...cos it seldom changes things but i just couldnt contain this one...WTF is up with the Tekken movie? I'm here on a night shift and so i thought..."hmm Tekken, i remember playing that game, the backflip dragon kicks of Law, the pogo bouncing Yoshimitsu, Paul Pheonix with the cool hair...what could go wrong here" (the same mentality i had for Transformers 2, i wish i would learn from my mistakes!!).

My question, oh discerning members of Arnies is "WHERE THE HELL WAS JINS ELECTRIC UPPERCUT...OR HIS DARK SIDE...OR PAUL PHOENIX...OR...OR...OR..." ok so you get the point!

When will we/I learn that people out there in the world are paid to ruin and destroy memories of those less fortunate to be in the movie making...er I mean...movie wrecking business!!??!!

Apologies if i am late on this one, but i couldnt let this one go, not after Transformers 2 as well.

 

<rant over (for now)>

 

thank you for your understanding. :D

What? You don't like a cliff hanger or were you hoping that it would be wrapped up in a nice "happy ever after" ending?

 

No, the end was cool. Just leaves the writers with an epic task to write their way our of this one without resorting to a bucket of cheese.

I was hoping for one final bit of cleverness, it would've been very difficult to get out of that situation and I wanted to know how they did it, obviously they would've done because it's Sherlock Holmes and he has other mysteries to solve. I don't really like cliff hangers in general, Inception is another one with a stupid cliff hanger at the end, the main reason for which is to leave them selves open to a sequel. But because Sherlock was a 3 part TV series, there won't be a sequel so we'll never know what happened.

Unless they make a new series.

 

Cliff hangers seem to be used by people who are insecure about getting a new contract for next season, or who are insecure that their audience won't tune back in next time unless they are essentially forced to by an incomplete storyline.

 

If your show is good, then you don't need cheap tricks.

May end up keeping this cat.

 

She's getting along better with our own kitten now, after a little trepidation and initial hissing.

 

 

Have provisionally named her Harriet Bojangles, or Haribo for short. :)

 

 

 

 

Still, would be nice to get her home where she belongs.

Haribo is a cool name. My cats are called Zeus and Brutus :P

 

A guy came round earlier asking if we'd seen the big black n white cat. Apparently its name is Tony and he wants him back home :S I invited him to stay and wait with some food and a cage but the rain put him off.

 

Tony the cat..

Why are toasters so ridiculously labelled?

 

We just bought a new toaster which goes from 1 to 6.

Why? Everyone likes it golden brown surely?

 

I just tried making toast on '3' and it burnt it really quite badly. The manual lists 1 as 'light' and 6 as 'dark' but what it should read is:

 

1- Warmed

2- Toasted

3- Burnt

4, 5 & 6 - *fruitcage*ed

 

Not only that but it has ridiculous settings like reheat, defrost and 'bagel'.

 

I think I might invent a toaster with no buttons and go on Dragon's Den.

Just put the bread in and it comes out nicely toasted.
