    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    I think I use about 5 or 6 different passwords for all websites,

    I find it irritating when a website tells me when resetting a password that I have already used that one or tells me my numbers, letters, capital letter combi doesn't fit their criteria.

    Keeps all your password in one place. Generates really strong passwords.
    Just use one, (obviously strong) password to access the lot.

    Irresponsible dog owners!

    Twice today Bailie has been attacked by the same dog.

    First time, this morning, she had found a ball and was carrying it so was more interested in hanging on to the ball than fighting back.

    Tonight however she wasn't carrying anything so she did have a go back and it was tricky trying to keep her from getting at this dog.

    The owner of the other dog was worse than useless and just shrugged and said "seems my dog doesn't like yours" to which I replied "the next time mate, I will let her go and we'll see which one comes off worst".

    I am not confident that she won't try to kill it
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    One thing is my own fault, up all night trying to fix new pc(well new board) as its intentionally trying to get people to upgrade usb drivers are almost impossible to find, had to have laptop on connected to desktop by ethernet cable, find drivers, thought I found them copy them over, then use a keyboard to use commands to get into control panel, then keep using tab button till I got to top bar, then scroll to computer, then the folder where the software was, then tab into that folder then go into it, and still the usb didn't work!

    Tried making a updated dvd with the drivers already on but as I couldn't find them got nowhere, found a manufacturers tool that adds the files to pen drive or iso, made iso with what drivers I had, and software and the software needs the files to already be installed to pen drive, or on a dvd, work out a fix by mounting the file but it keeps crashing.

    In the end I have one last attempt at installing the drivers onto the new windows install on new pc, success! shame by this point it was 6am! Then had to reconnect up the cables but as space is tight ended up putting the connectors in the wrong order (more a OCD thing i.e drive 1 is Windows, drive 2 is my games,movies,3 is blu ray, 4 is dvd, 5 is backup and 6 is portable) ended up the backup drive was set to slot 1, the main one was in slot 4, slot 3 showed as nothing in!

    I literally would need fine tipped tweezers to get the cables in but then i still needed to push in with finger.

    Sucess! New pc up and running shame I couldn't get the beep speaker working (and its blocked by so many cables) and I need to slot in a new card and a fan cable, but can do that another day,

    By time I got to bed and sleep it was about 8am, woken at 8.45am by council man fixing my door, good on one hand as its a 8-5 slot but shame on the day I wanted it late he came early! went back to bed after a hour and half, woken again by postman a hour later, then woke up at 2 as needed to post a letter but waited in for a parcel, the parcel eventually came just after 6pm

    And the "experts" say that everyone should have different passwords for everything. I have trouble remembering how old I am or what year it is occasionally.

    I seem to have misplaced large chunks of today. If found, send to the usual address.

    (I genuinely can't believe it's past 8pm. WTF? I keep looking at different clocks in case some of them are lying.)

    All these passwords had to be alpha/numeric/upper and lower case used.
    Not to worry though, because with all this security, the office had a book, kept in an intray in full view of everyone.
    All the passwords were written down in it, in neat columns, describing exactly which software they related to.
    What could possibly go wrong?

    I keep passwords written down at home, and like a big, red squirrel I keep them in different places.
    However, also like a big, red squirrel, I sometimes forget where I hide them
