    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 6:20 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

    If you put someone on ignore, does that mean you can't see any of the threads they start?

    TV channels that keep changing.
    That's the second retune in a couple of weeks.
    Have to use manual with the PVR as well because auto picks up lower power transmission from somewhere, that confuses the box!
    Why change them!

    I'm on about them keep changing which channel stuff is on. DMax has just gone from 42 to 37 (IIRC)
    Why?

    We are struggling with Freeview at the moment. The HD channels have become very hit and miss. We are a long way from the transmitter and I think some trees that have put on leaf are blocking the signal.

    I was getting a bad signal here at one stage, particular problems with the HD channels, which TBH ,I don't use much anyway. Anyway our aerial is only on a fascia mount, and as I said, it really is line of sight except for the trees which are close, but which you can see the lights on the mast through at night.
    So I tried a new aerial, which helped a bit, but not much. The answer was a new run of high quality co-ax cable from the aerial to the wall socket.
    It really has made a difference. The good cable's not that much more expensive than the rubbish stuff either. There's plenty about it online.
    Have you tried a manual tune?
    Again a search online will give you the right channels to tune to for your nearest transmitter.
    Don't confuse the transmission channel numbers with the TV channel numbers!

    Nipped the end of my finger with a saw, in its self that is fine. Trying to get the sticking plaster out of its wrapper one handed whilst dripping blood on the clients floor was irritating.

    Make sure you keep it really clean. Put a bit of savlon on it too.
    Make sure you change the plaster regularly at work & try to let it air a bit at night when you go to bed.
    It's very important that you look after it, you don't want that getting infected.
    Smile... It'll confuse em.

    At work, the lottery terminal is out of action. Despite several printed signs saying that we apologise that the lottery terminal is out of order around the tills and the stand thing where the game slips are kept. Customers still wanted to buy tickets and cash in scratchcards. When we explained to then that our lottery terminal is broken - a few got irate. Yet at top of the road, about 2 minutes walk, there is a 24/7 shop attached to a petrol station that has a lottery terminal.

    EDF - they've text me at least 4 times and sent me 2 letters in the last 2-3 weeks about ******* smart meters - all I did was try to find out more about their rollout programme, but I had to express interest to get even the slightest bit of info.

    Also, I find their website to be slower than a dial-up modem that's had all of its innards gutted...
