Handsomedan: 


I really like your avatar: "Please don't interview animals with a microphone". Right?




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

I have solar hot water panels and rainwater tanks on my house. Both of which are boosted by mains water and electricity as necessary.

I can't work out whether I am saving more money when the sun is shining or if it is raining.

Stop the madness ! 

I think some were down the line, rainwater harvesting should be built into building code for new buildings !!

Lots of food in my fridge at the mo and it's blocking the light so it's a bit darker in there than normal

I have to wait until next week until I get my new fish for my tropical aquarium

Making coffee in the office this morning, and someone bought green milk instead of blue milk.  Now I have to put three times as much milk in, and then microwave it for 30 seconds afterwards.  My productivity will be reduced today..

tdgeek: My iPhone 5 is not 4.8 inches, thats my first world problem

Second one is they haven't cottoned onto some of Android's nice features

When they do, they will however, be amazing and new like last time. grumble, grumble.




By the time which android would have moved on to something newer and better and then you will still have your first world problem.

If you are in the first world surely you can afford all 3

Well I can, but it's difficult to justify all three.

Trying to decide which I prefer more, the One or the S4, and it takes a few days to truly appreciate the nuances.

remoting into a Hyper V server then trying to get internet explorer to launch in Server 2012 on console. No start button, shortcut keys not working as windows key not mapping properly, cant get my mouse in exactly the right corner to get the stupid metro thing to come up - what idiot at Microsoft thought this would be a good idea.

Even on my Windows 8 desktop with dual screens getting the charms window up on the left monitor is an exercise in pure frustration.

I feel your pain. In the end we relented and put start8 in our 2012 systems. It's nigh impossible to use via RDP. Stupid Stupid Stupid.
