My mother got a tax refund letter from the HMRC (UK treasury tax office) saying she over paid £181 in taxes. My mother always asks me to do technical BS especially where computers are involved.

Found out her internet wasn't working so spent an hour sorting that out (she says "oh, my netflix stopped working I wondered why"). Since internet providers don't send you a paper bill anymore, and you're likely to call them when your fookin internet is down, how the fook do you get your account number? The first thing it says on the automated phone messaging is "please type in your phone your Vodafone account number". The phone signal works ok for phone calls, but data was another thing altogether so I couldn't even get it from the phone. If I had asked for the account number my mother would likely hand the tag with the wifi password on it :lol: After speaking with a lady from India for 20 minutes doing security checks, she got the stupid thing working like magic.

Got that sorted, now onto the tax refund form.

Had to go through 20 rounds of security questions. Eventually after ages sorting that it got to the refund form "You need a valid UK passport and a credit reference check". My mother is an Italian citizen. So I checked the phone number and it said "open from 8am until 4pm". By which time it was 5.10pm.

So why not just freaking send a cheque in the first place. Since you know my mothers address and credentials.

And I have a mother that doesn't know diddly squat about her own passwords or secret words and is hard of hearing. My very first question was "are you still with vodafone" and she gives me her phone. I said why you giving that to me for? She said "well you asked for my phone". I said "FFS", I asked if you were with VODAFONE!

Almost 2 hours of my life lost. Had no fooking chance of sorting that shit out from the get go.

I agree, I'm in the same boat. Horrding and dementia, total bitch, but blessed you are man and can take over. SHOW STRENGTH, NOT ANGER AND GUIDE HER. OR LEAVE HER TO SUFFER AND DIE, IF BITCH UNWILLING.

By the by, RE: "showering" thrice daily, that doesn't mean half an hour and ungodly electric/water costs rubbing your fuckin sweaty nutsack/minge! :o I'm talking five minutes absolute tops, including drying.

I remember talking to this Canadian bloke who couldn't get his head around this concept, "you must spend all day in the bathroom!" Funny old world, isn't it. It's true, OOP NAWFF where it's so cold it burns, you can paint the side of your house and mow the lawn then go out for the evening with nary more than a splash in the sink.

I have for now stopped throwing Fiat at crypto and am busy renovating Airstream, grinding frame, painting with marine anti rust rainbow paint, dirty as fuck.

Back in my day if a feller wanted the firing squad, he'd say his goodbyes, run a Goatse up the flagpole and that was that. Maybe ask for a cig. More innocent times. :/

I don't get it. How is this any different from his typical output? Or is it just kind of a cumulative effect?

Gonna guess it was from his decision to start using the n word (wtf does ren****r even mean?)

Sounds like one of those futile attempts to normalise a profoundly radioactive racial slur. Like this one! Even poor old Chris Rock ran into trouble with such antics.

Or maybe the racial component was the whole point, and I'm being overly charitable. I tend to be! Of all the chomo watchers in our community, I am perhaps the most ardent. Image

Aha. I missed that one. Yes, the real word is spelled "renege." The misspelling escaped my notice. Yeah, not cool.

I don't understand, he's been here since 2010 and seems to be a legitimate poster, what the hell happened to him? His last posts sound like an alt righter developed schizophrenia and dementia.

From the details he's posted, it sounds like yes he literally developed schizophrenia and dementia in the time since. Just decided to have a certain type of episode while posting this time, instead of his usual recent type of episode of regurgitating far right propaganda.

As someone who remembers his posts on the Neo Geo forum circa 2016, he's been full-blown neurotic for some time now.

Wow, that was weird. :shock:

Anyways, given the madness with recent SMB / SM64 auctions, I decided to have a nosy at Wata Games web page. I wish I hadn't, I want to commit GBH on every smug face on there.

Dear WataGames, please grade my CAVE cardboard box. I licked it once, but I don't think that should significantly lower the value of it.

Who the hell designed the button layout for the Steam Deck and assumed that positioning the face buttons and D-Pad at the extreme corners was a good idea? There's only a tiny portion showing them using the D-Pad or face buttons (to navigate Steam, lol, not even for an actual game) and it looks damn uncomfortable.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLtiRGTZvGM

It's very obvious this is aimed at the first person shooter crowd, but serious FPS players would rather play on computer with WASD and mouse than this, and it clearly doesn't care about games focused on digital controls by placing them in the least accessible and comfortable locations.

What I find deliciously ironic about the Steam Deck, is that it's a consolized PC that will be lauded by the PC Mustard Racers who like to diss consoles for their limitations.

(Of course not all PC gamers are Mustard Race idiots, but all PC Mustard Racers are PC gamers)

Woke up this morning to find out the second expensive 100GB Verbatim BD-XL disk in a row has been bricked. It's my damn ASUS drive, it died within two years. I tried running a cleaning disk and the drive fucked up the cleaning operation.

Asus used to be a reputable manufacturer. I see LG sells one for half the price I paid for the Asus. Is LG still a reputable manufacturer?

Can't speak for hard drives, but LG batteries are sought after in electric scooters.

Not a hard drive, a disk burner. Yes, I'm such a super-luddite I back up my games on 100GB BD-XL disks.

Laugh all you want, but thanks to the burner I have a copy of Devil May Cry V from the brief window it was DRM-free on steam, and now it's mine forever! (Actually since the new drive comes with a complimentary M-Disk, I'll probably re-burn it with some other irreplaceable games just to be sure.)

Thanks for the tip on the batteries. The Amazon reviews seem positive on the drive, but you never know how trustworthy those can be.


EDIT: and since this post is now at the top of a new page, my Asus CD/DVD/Blu-Ray XL disk burner died after less than 2 years.

If you have any input on whether LG is a reputable manufacturer of burner drives nowadays, I would be appreciative!
