A thread to post your positive and negative thoughts into. Doesn't matter really what on, or whom on. No flames, please. And if you don't mind, no signatures either.

Let me start off with my pet grumble peeve, people answering to a post in a thread, quoting the whole previous post and adding their single line of nothingness at the bottom. No editing of the quote so it's culled down to what they actually answer to; not being able to just reply; they're usually the first person answering and they need to quote the whole post, doesn't matter how long the thing is.

I haven't been into politics for AGES! Not even a nose poked through the door... *sigh* Not getting enough cafe time either :( and there's a graph at Einstein that still needs correcting...

I hate people that bump unanswered posts by replying to themselves with:

Nobody?

Here's a couple of clues - Either nobody knows the answer, or nobody can decipher your gibberish, or perhaps everyone just hates you. Especially if you bump the thread after less than 24 hours.

Just sayin'

Irritating. Just turned the TV server off. After 15 minutes I noticed it wasn't off yet. Turned the TV back on: "Do not turn your system off. Installing 1 of 12 updates."

Sigh. Just hoping it doesn't push Windows 10 update files on it, which will install 10 tomorrow when I restart that system. ;-)

Grumble - all these techies who decided to do their work on the left coast of North America, so there isn't a hope in hell of them finishing before civilised countries have gone to bed.

Other halves who think standing in one place banging-on about not being able to find something is what actually constitutes "looking for it"

Stony glares until 'er indoors finds where she left it ....

But I can't shake the feeling Annie wasn't talking about herself, but more about her manly better half. Even I felt spoken about. :)
