New mid-week thread.


Sitting on my balcony, enjoying the balmy nighttime temperatures, having a few Stellas. Celebrating the fact that I get to do this at 01:30 am on a Wednesday morning at the moment.

Ah, temporary unemployment.

Before you lads lose your shit get all finger pointy at me, my next tenure as an office slave is already as good as secure and will begin in a few weeks' time.

Just a bit of a heads up, lad. Becoming an estate agent will make you a bit racist, if you aren't already. I haven't met one that didn't loathe dealing with Asians.

>it's just not a great experience anymore, even with the power of nostalgia

You know what, I almost posted the exact same thing. I owned an Amiga back in the original days, and while they were cool and that, not as cool as you think, and firing up one now (unless you're deeply into the historical demo scene perhaps) nowhere near as good as you might expect.

I don't think that's going to be much of a problem considering his business model sounds like he's planning to sell mansions to the landed gentry studio flats in London to Russian oligarchs.

Actually what I hate the most from the experience that I have been able to gather helping friends sell homes over the years, nothing is worse than the kind of dreamers who have £50K of capital and think they can get on the property ladder and afford houses that cost easily five times that. In the age of low interest rates and what-have-you. Some of them see the error of their ways on their own, often after a good talking to from their wife or girlfriend, but others feel personally insulted when you tell them you can't in all good conscience sell them the property, no matter how much money they say their bank will give them on top.

Anyway, one reason why I am starting my own business, besides the fact that I am fucking tired of will to live-depleting, 9 to 5 office jobs sucking up to a boss, is that I think I've really discovered something for myself that I can see myself doing in the future. And as I said I've met some wealthy people who have already told me to get back to them once I'm fully set up. And they weren't just being nice, they really meant it.

I'm on a night shift for the next few nights they call "active regional standby" which really just means I have to go to work, and sit in an office in case something unexpected happens, which it probably won't. So I get paid, double time, to sit in the office all night in case a disaster happens either locally or at one of any other sites in the region. Obviously it's an absolute doss shift, but the encouraging thing is that they'll only put people who know what they're doing on it, as in theory you might have to actually manage a genuine crisis. So I'm both happy that others have faith in my abilities, and that I'm going to get paid a reasonable amount of money to post on this website tonight. Might even have a wank, there's nobody else in.

Went mushroom foraging again, this time on my own.

Mushroom season is noticeably winding down, the usual kinds I like to get are disappearing.

Either that, or somebody beat me to it. Although they left no obvious traces like discarded mushrooms along the way.

Still well enough for a quite tasty mushroom minestrone, which I am having here right now.

I'm trying to get some succulents to grow from seed. I was a bit slapdash with the last planting and got maybe one of them to germinate but as I was reusing some old soil it could have been anything. So today I did it right; carefully moistened succulent potting soil with a cotton wick in covered containers. Who knows if it'll work this time but what I did learn is that the bus from right outside my house goes to right outside B&Q so I didn't get soaked in the continual downpour that was today.

That sort of thing happened to us a few weeks ago when we were coming back from swimming in a lake here and all of a sudden saw huge numbers of fully ripe wild blackberries on a hedgerow. All we had was a few empty plastic bags to collect them, but because blackberries are so delicate, the ones at the bottom of the plastic bags had turned into a mush by the time we got home. We decided to cook most of them into jam, so it didn't really matter.

Trying to work out if I don't need a new, laptop with better battery life because I never really take it out of the house, or if I never take my current laptop out of the house because the battery life is shite.

It's a shit predicament because my X220 is still great and no great advancements have been made in CPUs and so on since this thing was built, but it's really hard to get good batteries for them now. I could just carry around a load of dodgy chinese batteries that get about 40% of their claimed performance, or I could buy old Lenovo batteries with thousands of cycles on them. That's really the only problem I have. Apparently it's not even easy to just crack open the battery and replace the cells.

Not a great solution as it's more than half the value of the laptop, and if we assume it's really a NOS Lenovo battery, the fact that it will have been sitting on a shelf for five or more years will mean it will not be anywhere near full capacity anyway. But it is still considerably cheaper than buying a newer x2 series, so maybe I'll have a go.

Kind of. Sometimes, when I was commuting for over three hours there and back, I'd think "I wish the aliens would invade" just a great marple Covenant ship or something, bursting through the iron grey clouds. That's it then, it's war, no one could skeptically question whether my train was late then. I think an alien invasion would really bring humanity together too. I probably wouldn't even get drafted into the infantry with how bad my eyes are.

Just missed a call from work. They're either going to be asking me to come in to cover someone, or if I want to take tomorrow's shift off as holiday, as I have fuckloads of accrued and I can't get paid all of it that I don't take.

I'm scared to call back in case it's the former. I won't go in but I'll feel bad for turning down double time pay.

There was a fella at my old workplace who hadn't taken a single day of holiday off in 2-3 years, so they pretty much forced him to have a couple of weeks off around the end of the year.
