Probably already been mentioned in this epic thread, but after two incidents on my way into work this morning:

 

 

 

The inability of a worryingly large number of drivers to accelerate to a safe merging speed when joining a motorway. The number of times I find myself stuck behind someone still doing 65 as they reach the end of the On-Ramp is unbelievable!

 

 

 

 

hate this, if people could merge properly, in theory you shouldnt have to slow down at all , traffic would flow without any holdups.

 

 

And if you accelerate to a speed faster than that of the speed of those in the left lane, you're merging where you have perfect vision because it's in front of you!

Windows Insider Programs emails from Microsoft get flagged as spam and sent to junk by Office 365 Hosted Exchange. So Microsoft is flagging their own legitimate emails as spam.

Not only Windows Insider... I participate in the Microsoft Spam Fighters programme and one would expect Microsoft's own email wouldn't end up trapped in that...

Drivers who cannot for some strange and unbeknown reason, maintain a steady speed of at least somewhere near the speed limit when they go through tunnels - especially through Auckland's Vic Park tunnel.

 

Havent they ever been through a tunnel ? Is there something to see that I am not seeing ?

 

It;s so strange  - you crawl to the approach, crawl through the tunnel, and pop out at the northern end, and then the traffic speeds up to at least the speed limit ...

I'd suggest it's the confined space gives the impression of being closer together. Also an accident in a tunnel is a much less pleasant thing and has a much larger in impact on traffic flow. I'd consider it normal for people to be more cautious. I don't personally feel too worried about it, but I know less confident drivers feel more apprehensive.

 

If I haven't been through a tunnel before, I am more cautious.

I just popped an Office 2016 DVD into my machine to see which apps are included in this edition. The Office installer opened up and told me that it's installing Office. No questions, no confirmation, no cancel button. I ended up ejecting it but the installer is still running in the background so who knows whether it's hosing my system...

 

Edit: Wonderful.

 

 

Edit 2: Doing a "repair" of Office 2010 appears to have fixed it.

Why is anyone surprised when Windows does this kind of thing? You just sigh and move on.

Fleas. They don't annoy me so much, but I get annoyed on behalf of my cats. There seem to be a lot of fleas around this year.

We had an infestation. We have been overlapping the treatments by about 1-2 weeks. My kids got savaged by them, my daughter had 35 marks on her at one point. 

 

Took two trips by the exterminator to get them all. 

 

I agree, many many more this year than we have seen before.

Did the exterminator also rid the place of fleas ? ?

Comfortis. It just works. The spot-on treatments like Advantage are just hopeless.
