Well, it finally happened, my 9 year old laptop died and I've replaced it. Feels odd! Also sorry for being away for so long. May 23, 2016

        Sorry for your "loss".. You're a retro computer guy, you can rebuild it. Make it stronger. Faster. Where's your solder gun?

        I suspect that the logic board is beyond salvage, I'm tempted to take it to a local shop so that they can take a look at it and see what the damage is (I live in a bedsit, so dismantling something as complex as a laptop would prove... interesting) and go from there. But tbh I'm kind of enjoying having a smaller, lighter, faster system that doesn't sound like a Harrier taking off when I throw something complex at it.

      Turns out under this site you have a limit of 50mb in storage... Which means I'm stuck for uploading more pics.

        50 mb? That used to be quite a stack of floppies back in the day.

        I'll see what I can do. Thought I'd turned off all limits, but we did turn off Flash support (which allowed multi-uploads) because someone complained. I forget who though...

      For the record, uploading dozens of images at once on a HSDPA connection is an arse.

      And like that, Saturday comes and goes - Sadly I was too out of it on the day to do the upload, will have to do so a bit later, sorry.

      Hmm, it's only just occurred to me that all my food posts were on the old, new site... That's annoying!

      Hooooooome! Tomorrow off, then Sunday begins with the mother of all shifts. Damn car boot sale is going to see us getting battered all day.

      Saturday was dead, but Sunday just didn't stop. Monday too saw the kitchen running at flank all day. Today wasn't bad, but need a rest.

        Work is always like that, whatever the field of operations. Feast or Famine they call it... Good luck...

      Right, back from a shift, was absolutely dead all day and tbh feel more knackered than when it's rammed. Only 5 more shifts to go this week

      Testing the new Opera 30 dev release for x86 Linux... Seems to be lighter than Chrome and none of the rendering issues the old version had.

      Show's how out of the loop I am - I didn't even realise he was dead.. I knew he was ill for some time but. Damn. LLAP indeed.

      Having wisdom teeth pulled is really rather unpleasant. Only 3 more to go!
