Yeah but the bloke is a ticking time bomb just waiting to explode, you just never know when his short fuse will go off and everything will blow up in your face
He won't take his problems out on us though, inshallah

Not yet but I think I will. I'll get use out of it for the cricket and league. Not having to listen to Fittler, Wally and Lockyer is just too tempting.



Nope they ramble on, especially Slater and Warne. Give me the ABC commentary any day of the week.
There’s no talent at the free to air networks anymore. Just a bunch of has beens clinging up thier jobs and giving others up their mates. The anti siphoning laws have stifled innovation. Channel nine stopped trying with league years ago because they have no competition. Games have to be available on free to air by law. 10 ain’t interested, so 7 and 9 divide the spoils.

Not sure if it happens to you guys or not but about once every 6 months my laptop does a Windows update that disables the backlight on my keyboard.

Each time it's been just long enough for me to forget how I fixed it last time.

Each time I watch YouTube videos and try all the suggestions until I work out that I have to go into Bios to turn it back on.

Surely this is some kind of programmers in joke.

All windows does is ****en update & every few changes settings.

I use on-screen keyboard & 1 update prevented it being accessible at log in without a bunch of arsing about.

Hate tech now days. So restrictive. Try remove MS Edge browser from the OS you paid for.

Yeah the constant harrassment to use Edge is ridiculous.

Pay good money for a computer and you should be exempt from internal spamming.

I clicked a thing looking for a setting & it opened in Edge. Got the 'make edge default browser' popup & clicking 'no' just reloaded the page & popup. Couldn't close it down or access other stuff had to switch the **** off & restart.

I've found that I need to stay proactive if I want to open PDFs in Adobe. Always wants to switch to the Edge version.
