When it's raining in the city, you don't have an umbrella, trying to walk under an overhang, and people with umbrellas are hugging the building.

frankv: and now airBnB will start sending you a stream of reminders and notifications...

 

Well, you got that right. A month or so later and one of their affiliates just called me on the phone, trying to sell me shares or some such (I cut him off before he could get very far into his spiel). Time to remove my phone number from the account...

@tdgeek: Mitre 10 website. ... Maybe I will invent caching and sell it to them.

 

Please seel them more than just the caching idea. Please include database hygiene & filtering technologies. 

 

 

 

 

and then sell that idea to JB Hi-Fi.

 

 

 

 

Aaaarrrggghhhh.

prima facie this is in violation of their privacy policy relative to personal information. More information is necessary to be sure. There is a contact point if you are worried about this.

Not sure but looks like a marketing group offering it. I’ll look up the organisers and let them know later tonight.

No size or price change at present... but it may still happen!

 

 

Well, although the 600 ml bottles are still 600 ml, it turns out that the 355 ml cans are 330 now...

News websites. Seems like they all chuck in click bait style so-called articles and even have more than one copy of them at times. Really annoying.

Those are the ones from the multipacks that many places are reselling. The actual cans for individual sale have been prettymuch discontinued in favor of the 300ml bottles for over the counter type sales. They still make some of the 355ml cans for machines but theyre hard to buy.

When you take pride in keeping your lawn tidy and trimmed but the neighbour across the driveway (that you look out on) doesn't.

 

 

 

(They actually moved out last weekend and left them uncut after not having done them for at least 6 weeks so I've just gone across and cut them.....b***dy slobs.)

When you like the look of a shaggily realistic grass lawn, but the people across the way keep their lawns mown to a rigidly militaristic precision. I go across and add fertiliser, even though it’s none of my business. B****y pedants.

His lawn isn't militaristic precision. He gave me back my $1995 Lawn Laser Pro Edger ages ago....

When you mow your own lawns reasonably regularly but the neighbour with a shared berm has someone to do theirs on a schedule ... and I don't trim the edges of my "side" so frequently.  I still mow the whole thing.

 

 

 

Neighbour across the road used a weed eater to "mow" their entire overgrown lawn the other day down to the dirt.  Now it's all brown.
