Some People Are So Uptight

I’m pissed off right now. Some people are just so uptight it’s untrue. One of my friends (E) posted some pictures on Facebook from a camping trip with her family, but when I go to comment on a few of them, she quickly posted on my wall to stop. Unbelievable. I don’t understand it at all. So she gets a few email notifications from Facebook. Boo bloody hoo. It would only take 10 seconds to delete them. I’m only being friendly, being interested in what her and her family have been up to. I really have no idea what her problem is, but whatever it is, she needs to get over it.


Back From Holiday

The other day I got back from our family holiday in France, the Ardèche to be exact. I think it will be my last family holiday. It was about an 11 hour journey in the car, and seemed even more unbearable this year. It was even worse going back, we got stuck in Lyon for about an hour with the traffic hardly moving. For about 30 minutes the traffic literally didn’t move one inch. Not to mention I’m not really a person to sit by the pool all holiday (which is pretty much what we do) and I can’t stand when it’s far too hot (it was 35 degrees some days) and you can’t really do anything in the day and can’t get to sleep at night.

So next time I will probably stay home when my family go on holiday. I think it would be great, because I will be free from them for two weeks, getting the experience of living on my own and it means I can have as many people as I like come over, perhaps one person every day or something. And I can have a party or two. Not a free-for-all type affair, like my idiotic peers have, but a normal one like I’ve had before. Except more people can stay over if they want (providing they don’t mind sleeping on sofas, which in my experience they don’t). It’ll be great.

But it’s a year away. Well, a person has to have some dreams, no matter how small.

Lessons from The I.T Crowd

1. Turning it on and off again practically always works…

“Hello IT. Yuhuh. Have you tried forcing an unexpected reboot? You see the driver hooks a function by patching the system call table so it’s not safe to unload it unless another thread is going to jump in there and do its stuff and you don’t want to end up in the middle of invalid memory… Hello?”

2. The best way to hide from cops is to kiss

3. Memory is RAM

4. You can email the fire brigade

5. Cleaners get more recognition than the I.T staff
