Message from Morg

My posting will be light for a while.

My keyboard and touchpad are not working properly, and about the best I can do until I've fixed them is post links (I can copy/paste easily enough since I plugged in a mouse to bypass the touchpad). Takes me ages to get the letters to 'take' when I'm trying to write.

I think it's a software problem and I'm trying to find it. I know I could use a separate keyboard to bypass this one, but dammit, I want to fix this one.

A bonus of trying to track down this problem is that while I was at it I found a Data-miner in my machine. It's dead now. Wonder who it is that knows everything I've got on my machine and everywhere I go? Good job I've got no nonce stuff in here eh?

SirHM,
I could react in sarcastic manner to this post but not being of a sarcastic nature I find it quite easy to refrain from doing so.
Instead, I am sure, your hi-tec wizardry will shine through and you’ll be back with us in no time.
Incidentally I thought all you did was cut and paste, along with the odd link or two, that is.

Been trying to wind me up for a while now John.

Why?

Come on: out with it.

SirHM,
Sometimes we take life too seriously, I try to inject a little humour, if I have offended you, in any way, then that was not my intentions. If we stopped and looked around us, with all the shit that’s going on, we’d cry. I like, as you know, the occasional banter, I enjoy a good argument but I love winding-up the unwashed.
Morg, I have the greatest respect for you and your intentions, of which we spoke, the last thing I would want would be too upset you. Having said that, if we set ourselves up as targets, we must expect the odd pot-shot!.

Just being a bit touchy John. It's this damned machine. It's driving me to distraction.

Hi Morg,

Use a spare keypad. I know you think it's letting the dam machine win, but it's not a person it's simply a man made piece of equipment.

It's so very easy to start believing that these dam machines have a will of their own, but they don't, the struggle is all one sided. Just plug in a keypad and say what the heck and get on with life.

Keep well.

Morg,
Do what I do, throw the *ucker out and get a new one!. Either that or I get someone who actually knows what he’s doing. I can tell you anything you want about buildings but computers and mobile phones I detest, I would hate to tell you how many of my mobiles have come into contact with a brick wall at great speed!.

Totally off the subject here are two good short YouTube videos that really have made me think about my views on another subject (Just cut and paste the links).

PS.
I don't agree with everything in the second video, but she can put a case very well.

Chris,
Thankfully I stopped believing in a “God” many, many years ago,, about the same time I found my pissed-up Father leaving my presents at the bottom of my bed!. I found that both Santa and God were used equally the same when it came to threats. “ If you’re not good Santa wont leave you any presents” or “If you masturbate God will sent you to hell”. Well, I never got the *ucking bike I wanted and I enjoyed wanking so I thought Bollocks to both of them.

Dear Cllr John Oddy,

I went to a CofE school so I didn't realise that anyone actually beleved in God until I was about 8 or 9, and that came as a bit of a shock I can tell you.

The only time God got a look in was in morning assembly when we 'All sang all things bright and beautiful', after that no one mentioned God for the rest of the day. And just like Father Christmas I thought everyone knew religion was just a nice fairy tale.

Now I find that in Tony Blair's new faith based schools some children are being taught (in science class no less) that the world is only 6000 years old, and that evolution is not a fact, but a mere theory! Without of course being taught what a theory is in science (ie tested facts).

This form of nonsense will inevitably led to: Sod medical science just let's pray for him that will be enough.

As for the second video I don't care what she say's, she a craker! I do hope that's not sexist.

Hell’s teeth Chris you’ve got a good memory, being able to remember when you were 8 or 9, I have difficulty remembering what pub I’m in!!!.
Now, in my day, I liked the faith schools, in particular the girls Catholic School, refined totty that didn’t make you wear a condom!.
Your also right about the lass in the second video, I’d give her one and I hope that’s sexist!.

Cllr John Oddy said...

SirHM,
Are you alright, you’ve gone very quiet, still got technical problems

Sir Henry Morgan said...

John

Very much so.

I'll be replacing my machine soon.

Bit like you with mobile phones but my preferred target was always glass. Makes a more satisfying noise
