Missed my chances of getting a real cheap GTX 1080ti. One on ebuyers (not to be confused with ebay), going for in excess of £400

Got an appointment tomorrow for my bunged ear.
The receptionist asked what the issue related to and I said it was probably a congested eustachian tube, but she picked this up as 'gestation' tube (and I'm the one that's half deaf at the moment).  :cheesy:
I told her if I had one, then that would be a serious problem, given blokes don't normally have a uterus and explained it actually was, so she said she'd put it down as a sinus problem, because she could spell sinus.  :laugh:

I could hear laughter coming from next to the reception window and poked my head round, and it was my doctor going through some notes. :azn:

The problem is that a lot of people are confused these days with regards to uterus and all the trans thing that goes on these day, that is probably what she was thinking of
 :laugh:

I wish it was a simple for the problems I'm having in that area.


I have noticed an 18Mbps hike when I stopped my virus scanner, really have, it used to be 57ish-Mbps, when I did a speed test again, it went to 75 Mbps
What 'virus scanner' are you referring to?
If you're using Win 10 you've got Defender which is built in, negating any need for a third party anti-virus.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I've never heard of an anti-virus program throttling your Internet speed.


One that starts with a K

England were doing well with 0-3 up, until they let in two goals. But still managed to scrap a win

I think I may have found why the internet disconnects at times. It's the virus scanner. It also chokes the internet so I can't get a good YouTube stream

I was genuinely surprised at something the other day.
I recall Richie's housing problem and the rent levels he has to pay .

Scotland have built more council houses since 2013 than England has, despite being 1/10th of the population.
It's so surprising that even The Sun felt fit to report it (very briefly): https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7457338/snp-nicola-sturgeon-council-houses/


This is not a political dig, but the mismatch is dramatic.
Why can we finance a tenfold council house build than England can manage?
Something isn't right.

These aren't Tory 'affordable housing' that you need to get a (£100k+) mortgage for I think, they seem to be  genuine council houses.  :shocked:

I don't normally read that rag, but it's interesting if true. My bruv was saying that if the inevitable happens with Brexit, then rents will go down in London. I can only see that happening if people do leave the country and the economy does go shit state

Maybe I was expecting too much to hope for the landlord to get the 300Mbps internet. At least it's better than 12Mbps at most and at least this won't have interference from other street users/traffic going past

Persistent and annoying, brother was forcing me to take paracetamols, which did fuck all

I’ll have to wait until the new internet is up and running

I have backed up to a NAS drive a couple of months ago, most of the most important stuff, since I have 2tb, I’m going to detach the rwo drives I have stored my photos, coming in at a whacking great 2tb per drive

Thank goodness the router isn’t going to be inside my room

The engineer says the cable inside my room is a data cable, which I don’t get

Stable internet connected and running

At last got my money from the eBay sale

This is also what I don't like, people just watching items and not placing bids
