I accidentally clicked the wrong thread but was able to hit the x in time to not actually visit that thread.

Work was so desperate to cover a set of nights that the shift management group sought me out, moved my summer leave over a week so I now get 4 weeks off instead of three, and moved my overtime to my time off so I don't lose it.

had to drive like a cunt to deepest Inglan while a mate heckled Jacob Rees-Moog in my home town

it would be impossible to resist bricking the cunt, maiming, blood transfusion at least, a legitimate target as the Ra used to say, he gets trapped in a revolving hotel door, bosh, hammer time, it's ok to think that though, it isn't planning or owt

Tried to introduce someone who usually only listens to Rock and Metal to Autechre by showing them violvoic. They said: "Hmmm, sounds interesting so far, but when is an actual beat coming in finally?". Then I put on Aphex Twin and they said: "That's actually sounding really nice, is that also the Autechres?". I said: "Hmmm, yes"

Now that person likes Autechre, too

New profile is coming in at work meaning a Mad Hatter's Tea Party of FUBAR. Everyone taking on new roles and jobs and the inevitable teething problems that will ensue as my place of work is fucking terrible at foresight.

Luckily I have three weeks annual leave so I will miss most of this. Unluckily the profile comes in a week before my leave starts so I will actually experience the worst of it.

That was until the Staff Management Group guy sought me out two days ago. He'd noticed my large chunk of leave and knew I'd be an ideal candidate to cover a set of nights they were desperately short of staff for. SO, now I'll be on nights during that first week, AND he's bumped my leave over meaning I now have 4 weeks off afterwards. He even sorted me out a few nights of overtime during my time off :^)

I think I finally fixed the issue with the Esc, 1, Q, A, & Z keys being mostly unresponsive on my laptop. But I had to go into the BIOS and update it to do so. I hope I fixed it anyway. I hope.

UPDATE: External keyboard acquired. Installed. Test successful. Even after spending about half an hour removing the bottom cover, blasting the dust out with compressed gas, and screwing it back on, that still didn't get the farthest left keys working. But now that the new USB keyboard works beautifully, it matters not.

Officially started the new job today at the casino, seems like it's gonna be pretty good gig, spent the day mostly doing secondary role A/V stuff, since I haven't been trained in yet on what will become my primary role doing graphic design for the A/V team. Even the A/V labor was much more enjoyable than the last company I did A/V tech work for, the pay is much better and my team all seems like good guys. 

Only qualm so far is the 7am start time, but I'll get used to that and it gets me out early enough to enjoy the afternoon/evening.

Just curious, what don't you like about a 7AM start time? I think that's great - you avoid rush hour both ways, early enough to hit up errands before you go home before every store is a zoo etc. 

I am lucky enough to make my own schedule and chose 10am-6pm just for those reasons.

I feel ur pain, srsly.

My favourite is when you don't have quite enough space for an album so it 'ghosts' a random track on the album. So you make space and it won't update. So then you delete the whole album from phone and add it again. Then it goes through all the motions of exporting it to your phone, only to find it didn't. And won't.

Similar annoyance - I shelled out for a custom 400gb iPod classic, not knowing the software architecture has issues past 256gb. So occasionally tracks just disappear entirely and you have to "rebuild the device database" which takes a bloody hour to do.

this is why i stay away from all these new sync devices thingies... being it mail or images or music, it's a no no  for me... i'll do it old school copy/paste...
