    I've just fallen on the stairs at the station.
    First time in about 15 years. On top of that I've grazed my hands and knees.

    Also cracked the screen of my new phone. Never done that before as I never carry my phone it's usually in my pocket.

    I think I'm more annoyed by falling going up the stairs than anything else.

    And now i'm feeling that my knees are really sore.

    I want to say "user error" - because its you, but to be fair lots of banking interfaces are shite and because of Open Banking/PSD2 and the rise of mobile in general, lots of banks are neglecting the desktop. NB. Even if you rooted your Note it wouldn't work; banking apps pretty much never accept a rooted OS, for obvious reasons.

    You can get around that with some devices by using Magisk. Though I wouldn't recommend it for online banking.

    Yesterday I had to pop out to pick up a prescription from Hospital then go to food shop and as usual I used my motorcycle to bypass those people who like to complain about the rush hour traffic while sitting alone in a car and these events drew my attention:

    1. A3 Hook Roundabout - The A3 here has 3 lanes here but as you approach Hook Roundabout the left lane becomes the off ramp only lane for the overpass roundabout and this is signed quite early but alas loads of people leave it to the last minute to get or out thus the traffic slows and there is a greater chance of accidents.
    2. Puffin Crossing - So as the lights changed to Red and both directions of traffic came to a stop and I naturally filtered up the outside up to the stop line, the car on the opposite side did stop but seemed to think just because everyone had cleared the crossing it qwas fine to go with the light still on red for another 5 seconds but he wasn't alone he was followed by the car behind him.
    3. Nissan Leaf - The food shop car park had the usual Electric car charging bays near the entrance and while I had something to drink on my motorcycle I watched as a person drove their Leaf into it and promptly locked the car and walked in to the shop, it kind of highlighted that they can use these bays even though they have no intention of charging it at the time which as more cars go electric is surely a argument waiting to happen.
    4. Trolleys - Not exactly car related but just another example of how utterly lazy and retarded people can be, again as I got ready to leave the food shop car park a person loaded up their Ford Galaxy with bags and even though the trolley park was all of 5 bays away they just left it in the bay next to where they had parked. I was kind of hoping they would crash into the trolley as they left but they didn't, they are also probably the type of person who moans when people leave them in the way and also when there are none to use once in the shop.
    5. Homebound - I was actually on a minor road about to head into my own which was on the right just a short distance passed two parked cars on the right, a Audi Q was coming out of my road going left and duly came out on to the minor road and waited on their left for me to pass the two parked cars but it seemed the VW behind wasn't paying attention and tried to come round the Audi on my side of the road which resulted in some embarrassing reversing for the VW driver having just avoided a head on with me because I wasn't travelling that fast.

    I sit in the front but turned around looking at my children. Not because it might be the last time we see one another well and alive, but because I don't enjoy looking Death right in the eyes..

    What a load of arse gravy

    Its taking almost a minute to launch a small Excel spreadsheet after the computer has booted up.

    Android launches Excel instantly but editing a spreadsheet is a lot easier on the laptop

    I don't think I've had a mechanical drive in my desktop for nearly a decade now, my main drive is a m.2 nvme drive with a secondary SSD and when the SSD goes pop I'll get another m.2 nvme instead.

    Update - It seems this week has seen an even higher level of people not using their indicators while driving than normal, one driver I was behind failed to use it three times in a row including the time they didn't seem to want to indicate for the parking space they were going in causing me to stop.

    This is fucking retarded.

    We've known the answer to this for years but councils have started making it incredibly difficult and expensive to take stuff to the dump - full in the knowledge that fly tipping is the outcome.

    We setup public and commercial waste systems for a reason. Whether people "should" act in certain ways is immaterial - people don't - full stop. So councils and taxpayers need to take it on the chin and make waste disposal free and easy, rather than increasingly expensive and obstuctive.

    We've been through this before. We know what works. We should do it.

    Yes, it's beyond a joke, all the country lanes by our tip are full of rubbish, it's not illegal stiff, just general builders rubble, but they wont let any kind of van in.
    who clears up the rubbish from the lanes...well its the council.
    I've got my van there, but I have to take any DIY rubbish in the car.
