Woke to find an e mail in my inbox from Virgin......bang on realistic looking. Could pass quite easily as real.

It threatens customers they are facing “automatic disconnection” due to “invalid billing information” and asks that they take immediate action to prevent this by entering their username and password.

It was early morning and I clicked on the link and entered my e mail address...........as I did (and thankfully) I looked at the name in the page bar to see if it was a secure connection.....it had a grey lock showing but the name in the bar was nothing I recognised from Virgin.............at that point I hadn't entered my password.

I then went online and found this is a scam going around at the moment.

So as Kojak used to say......"be careful out there"
Never click on any link like that
If you are a customer of what looks like that sort of email , go direct to the site in your browser

The local nutcase has taken a liking to our cat and is encouraging him round her gaff. Fully expecting to discover she's been eating the local cat population or something.

Neighbours a few doors down, their house alarm going off AGAIN whilst the ignorant ***** are out.

I can't do noise at any time but my daughter is trying to sit a mock 11+ exam in the study and it's just ringing and ringing and ringing.

Have finally snapped and left them a note asking them to ****ing sort it out.

Have been taking footage of it for a few months now.

This stuff angers me disproportionately, I don't believe that nobody has ever mentioned it to them.

Reversed the car into a brick pillar.
Even more annoyingly, it was only because I parked and noticed the offside wheels were on the grass, so straightened up. That meant I moved across, and the rear nearside corner caught the pillar.

Lucky you ain't got a gun, WG..
That sort of noise is infuriating.
Not quite as bad but which equally annoys me, is in the summer (probably all year round but I only notice it because the windows are more likely to be open in the summer), some c*nts smoke alarm in their shed, lean-to or illegal out-house with beds in, which has been announcing its low battery warning for the last 6 months & of which I appear to be the only person that can hear it.
CHANGE THE F*CKING BATTERY YOU C*NT!!!

Inner side of my left knee feels like its on fire, no bumps or knocks but since friday its been proper b*stard, any pressure from the outside of the knee makes it worse,. no swelling or **** all
trouble is I moved gaff 14 months ago and still have not signed on with a local quack, expecting that to be more painful than the knee itself.
Might have to do the typical bloke thing and see if it repairs itself :D

Seriously, that could be a bit dodgy.I've had DVTs (3) in my leg that started in a similar way.It doesn't sound a million miles away from phlebitus either. Best get it checked out, you can register with a doc and see them at the same time. Hopefully it's f**k all and they'll tell you to bugger off , and stop wasting their time.

I did as I really want to know now :)

I love sitting cross legged, I tend to leave it too long though so when I get up I have no feeling in leg and always a chance I could fall over, that's for Eggy to know what he is missing out on.

Helped a mate who's not very tech savvy with some IT & Home Cinema issues he's been having, which included connecting bluetooth "smart" speakers to his TV. Everything worked very well, and the speakers were particularly interesting to configure - but there was a significant (c. 5 second) delay between the onscreen picture and the audio channel, which I couldn't address using the TV's built-in sync management tools.

I have been unable to stop thinking about it, waking several times during the night to ponder potential solutions, and I suspect it will continue to plague my thoughts until I find one. I've already got one - he can use Kodi's excellent built-in audio sync offset tool, but that won't work for "regular" TV and other streaming services.

Does he have Sky?

There's a setting on there where you can manage the audio delay?
