Scooby-Doo's other nephew
A country trend that didn't reach me.
I haven't had a shortwave radio in decades. I think new music comes from the intertubes now?
I'll post the sound image in 2 minutes. Godzilla is on it.
isn't that russian??????
No. It was produced there but Skibidi is not a Russian word.
i know.....just grinding your gears
Right now. In this story line of we all made it up, inside a different emotions nearly like 24 hours after watching Advenger's End Game, there I wanted a peaceful evening, and yes I am havine one so far so good. Got nothing really blowing my gears, until someone pushes me there. Ah. Least I cannot trigger off the effects yet again.
the prices of phones skyrockets each and every damn year
dont spoil it,but as it as good as they say?
Do believe in the hype.
A ton of laughter and also a ton of action, they had every star ever imaginable in it. Even a black hole or two hahaha
I crack myself up
what grinds my gears......
PEOPLE WHO SPOIL THE MOVIE BEFORE I GET TO WATCH IT!!!!!!!!!!
(and no i'm not talking about you milo)
Yet another Avengers sequel...meh. I'm sure they keep making superhero movies, because that's what China likes.
Not a problem Ocnbrze Have a nice one my friend.
Marvel has run out of sequels. DC needs to start their "New God's" game.
Jack Kirby is the "ring leader" to rule them all...
Not"Kamandi" "Mister Miracle" please.
When opening up new tabs on chrome, I still cannot move the blank one over to the left though, that is a complain over chrome itself though, I am a bit ocd on having fb as my primary tab, then into the interwebs on the other tabs, is there a way how to fix this though?
The keyless entry fob for my 2014 Dodge died today and I had to break out the spare. The fob for my wife's 04 Pontiac is still functioning fine. I'm sure glad there have been great advancements in battery technology.. grrrrr.
doing favors for people..
I have a guy...who gets 50% off a major common household appliance.
I have 7 people who want in... Money in by Sunday, cash only.
Of course two people are jerking around. They've had a week. They are literally holding everything up.
"Tonights not good"
well , soon you're out... I have $2500 sitting here from people and I need to get moving.
and no, not stolen goods
When you come in on a Saturday morning to work and find your colleague stating half the roster has disappeared off our spreadsheet!
Inspects said spreadsheet and finds someone has deleted January through to the start of May!! Ahhh...
This is no accident! Lucky for us I protect the sheet so that every single action on the sheet is logged in the background.. Nice!
Upon further inspection we find the time and date, the 1st May at 15:19 by Windows User!! Noooo, fail!
Right, so we know it was not us as we have our user name entered into MS and it's not the OPs manager.. this narrows it down to 2 people, HR who edit the sheet as required or another...
This is a nightmare as there is no backup, so I am now having to re-create 4 months of the sheet, including all conditional formatting, range selection for calculation and any missing code as the user DELETED the bloody sheet! Why could they not have just cleared it?? Ha??
I am guessing the person responsible was probably trying to freeze the pane and thought the warning messages about data deletion was clearly not anything they needed to worry about..
So hows your Saturday going?
That's a real PITA having to renter the data. I hate having to redo things.
Not a great bank holiday in terms of weather is it? I guess that evens out after the last one was so sunny.
I'm expecting some gadgets being delivered, to connect my phone up to a monitor, and game controller simultaneously. Amazing that my phone is probably a more powerful device than the computer I'm writing this on (admittedly an old laptop).
Haha, yeah. Backup would have been handy..
Oh I got the USB extension thingy the other day @LV426 works a treat. Just need to work a little something out later.
Yeah weather is crap.. cold here and just had a sleet storm, whilst the pink blossom is failing around me. Very odd in May!
This time of year contrasts with last year, when it was the hottest May day on record. We certainly seem to be having big fluctuations in weather conditions year by year.
Duplicate rants merged.
I'm sorry for what you're dealing with, but your whole post left me feeling gobsmacked. Window$? Files that assorted people can edit, even deleting their entire contents, with no accountability? No backups? Why?!
30+ years ago I would have prevented such a catastrophe on UNIX with a combination of strategies. And I'd be doing it today on Linux (damn that brain tumor that made me stop working!).
I hope this unfortunate situation can be used as a learning tool. It's uncovered some clear problems/weaknesses, but they're problems that are fixable.
It's all backup thanks @MoodyBlues
I've kept the original and right protected it so no one can alter it as it still stores valuable traceable edits that we may need later in the year and created a backup on the new file.
That is the problem, too many people with access to the file when in reality only a few should have access.
Another thing that's grinding my gears right now...
A year ago I requested a new desktop as our struggles quite badly at times and again 3 months ago. (2gb of ram!!) And it looked like we were getting one as site wide new PCs arrived.
Yeah... we were not on the upgrade list! Now I have to chase the OPs manager every few weeks to see "how it's going.."
WTF Firefox? You close all my pins, kill EVERY SINGLE ONE of my extensions because "Add-ons that can change your browser's settings without your consent or steal your information have become increasingly common."
Let's not mention my browser changing my browser's settings without any warning, let alone something resembling consent.
