All technology hates me today :( - helen-louise
All technology hates me today :(
irc log from just now:
astra: i managed to break the inner tube of my tricycle tyre when i tried to pump it up - i think the pump is faulty, as richard managed to do the same thing.
astra: the 13cm spanner that richard had was not long enough to multiply my maximum force enough to budge the nut to change the inner tube.
astra: the nut appears to be corroded with some sort of white oxide layer, although it "should" be stainless steel.
astra: and the printer is refusing to print anything out, even though it is supposedly connected to the network. it *will* photocopy.
astra: so yes. machines are not my friend.
astra: oh! and pc world managed to send me 2 cyan cartridges + 1 magenta instead of 1 cyan, 1 magenta & 1 yellow - and i ONLY JUST noticed.
astra: and i've now officially run out of yellow ink.

More details later. Now I just need sympathy :/

Sucktastic! *hugs*

Oh, on a totally unrelated note, but that might be a plus in your day, I finally got out the Freezepop CD (the unpacking of things from Vegas has been... complicated) and am listening to it at work today. I like it a lot! Thank you! :)

*hugs and headpats*

In other news, I sent you a couple of emails post-APC, but never saw a response. Did they fall by the wayside while you were ill? Or did they not make it to you? I thought I had the right address(es)....

I have the emails, but no spoons. Actually, I am in the negative numbers with regard to spoons. Have hardly been online at all, and haven't had enough brain for coherence when I have been.

Sanity should return after Friday. (The deadline for the various students' Coursework Of Doom).

Completely understood (and rather suspected, which is why I waited this long to ask). gridlore ordered me a Titanium Spork this week; I'd be happy to send it your way if it'd help. :)

*more hugs*

bikes far too often mix steel and aluminium. bad juju. use axle grease (blue goo) on all threads.
