A request

I’d just like to ask people not to link me any YouTube content  until they reverse their bigoted anti-LGBTQ stance. Being LGBTQ+ or an ally of is not “adult content”, and blocking LGBTQ+ content in the name of being “family friendly” is harmful to kids.

If they want to block adult content, then that’s fine, but they need to be more realistic about their filters. And until they do, I’d rather not be reminded that they exist.

Thank you.

Headaches

Many apologies for not posting anything this weekend as I had planned. I’ve been suffering from headaches which I originally thought were due to alcohol but now seem to be more like caffeine withdrawal. Also it’s been hot in the house overnight so much dehydration.

Anyway, normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, by which I mean hopefully later today or tomorrow.

Thanks.

I’m Back… again

You may (or may not I suppose) have noticed that I’m back in the land of blogging, and that most of my recent posts have been Elite: Dangerous related. It gives me something semi-regular to blog about when real life isn’t being interesting enough. However, it’s not all I’ll be blogging about, and I’ll tag/categorise it when I do. See you all around.

With Apologies…

I’ve upgraded the cache and started a rebuild, so hopefully things will improve. Meantime, please bear with me. I’m hoping I don’t have to change hosting providers.

Navigating my way through Tuesday

This morning, as I sat in a waiting room full of screaming children for my appointment with an NHS nurse¹ — which was more than an hour and a half late due to traffic hold ups on the A40 — I got a phone call from a recruiter. Due to the situation, he said he’d call me back when I got home, and in what may be a first for recruiters everywhere, he did! Anyway, we spoke, discussed my employment situation and then having promised to send me a job specification for a position in The City™², he asked me to respond to the email when I get it, and hung up.

Keyboard and Case

BlueTooth Keyboard
Bluetooth Keyboard

Having got fed up with fiddling with tiny keys while composing blog posts, I decided to order a MiniSuit Bluetooth Keyboard from Amazon for my tablet. Pretty cheap, easy to set up and it looks good. The biggest downside I’ve noticed so far is the lack of a £ symbol, so I guess I’ll be using the on-screen for that. Also, the CTRL key doesn’t appear to work with ConnectBot SSH client, although that could just be me needing to do some setup. Continue reading “Keyboard and Case”
