Dispite the last post you just read I actually had an interesting weekend.
Friday was shopping day followed by a japanese lunch in which I had a curry with lots of chicken.
Then I met with a friend for coffee had to get a cake in the end, man those wimmen talk! I didn’t have anything initially but as it was 3.30 and they had no show of stopping I had something and finally at 4.30 they stopped.
Next yesterday, after training it poured down but had some saveries and salad in a local caffee well the local robert harris I guess thats local, and talked to another friend.
Finally today I went to grandpa for lunch in which I consumed a chunk of a good ol lamb rack.
Things were not as smooth bar the office stuff I have just delt with I got a message from my test team, about my cash bouncing, I was missing a suffix so I had to find and resend.
I also messed my address on some stuff and had to resend that.
Lets hope nothing goes this week.
This is an extention to the weeks total muther fucking totally bastardised fucked up fucking shitty fucking bull shit that I have had the misfortune to deal with.
The other workstation was reported to me by its user saying it couldn’t open files.
This has happened before and I doodled with it a little but still couldn’t get it working.
I suspect one of the last 2 update packages went a bit loopy.
So what to do.
First tried to fix the associations in program defaults and they didn’t.
Next go to programs and features, thank jesus we have still a controlpanel in windows 10.
Anyway select ms office pro 2016 right click choose change and wait about 5 minutes for it to start.
Select online repair.
Tap the next button a couple times wait 30 minutes.
run word, al f d for account, select update, then update again.
go back to word control w to close all files in word if anything open, then alt f4.
Wait 5 minutes, the package loads.
Check mail, it processes well.
Check if the issues I have had with excell and word still work and they do.
No idea why they screwed but at least thats fixed.
However office is not activated and needs a key.
I just hope once I find and enter that that it works.
Welcome to a week.
Saturday and sunday had nothing happen in them except it rained on sunday and nothing much was done.
The issues continue, the main box has a colour issue with excell and has always had this plus others after upgrading office to 2013.
We have been using an older version but it was decided to reload office.
I took several tools about 5 of them to kill office but I couldn’t kill all of it I even entered the registry and killed every office key and in the system folders and killed every office file.
Office refused to install and stubbornly refused to do so all monday.
As you can imagine this left me behind.
Monday was a test day, I had plans and I used all that day and night trying to make the system work.
I finally resorted to reinstalling 2013 and it worked.
The issue still exists sadly.
A reformat was proposed.
I even figured a timeline of 4 days at the end of the month of october meaning I’d have to give up 4 fucking days of a possible life.
But since it was only excell a solution involving another workstation was sorted out to be used for the particular colour issue.
For that I am happy.
Tuesday morning was spent doing damage control, office worked but the system had got dammaged as a result and took 3 more hours to fix.
In the afternoon, I spent 3 hours on normal stuff thank fucking jesus that stuff at least didn’t need to be actioned just read.
I spent just over 1 hour on the web test, no remote then filled out my invoice and had a coffee.
Wednesday, today, was spent doing computer work.
Ms has updated a lot of things.
A feature update for win7, as well as a sfc update to fix a resource issue.
The next updates were a performance upgrade for dotnet and a feature update for win7.
The final update pleased me a lot.
Microsoft has finnished forcing users to update to 10.
The issue of the win10 spyware is gone, microsoft has removed the windows 10 virus from all computers and that for me is good.
I went out with grandpa for lunch and not much else.
I am trying to organise an outing with dad.
On friday, I plan to go out with mum.
Bar standard training I really hope that next munday I can get up and enjoy us sunday and hopefully get my fat fucking arse the fuck outside because I havn’t managed to even do that.
Worse I have no longer the local support I once had.
That means I need to fix things.
My plan is to keep things going till it gets bad then replace the machine.
The only thing of value that happened this week is that I am now the proud owner of a unidin sse30.
Compaired to the fp098, there are no features its a slimline unit and is quite good and I got it for 38 bucks.
The only other models I was interested in were the fp098 which was still sold, and the fp 1100 which was a simple phone.
The advantage of the sse30 is it is the size of a phone reciever and slimb.
Its designed for the deaf but has a loud ringer, big buttons and its small and light.
Cables slot into the unit and its fine for a phone.
It does not generate background noise unless you turn off its filters which are quite good.
It can also be dropped.
By that if I drop the reciever on the cradle it will autolock in.
If I pick up the reciever it will come out.
If I am assleap and wish to not be disturbed I can silence the ringer via a switch on its left side.
I also got some meghan trainor music for 13 bucks.
These days where I can I am going for digital downloads because I have to many cds and really need to limit what I buy now.
That doesn’t mean I will spend all my life on digital some artests don’t have a shop just apple or google music but otherwise its all good.
Anyway this should last you arseholes for the next week or so.
I am off.
Well not much again.
adobe is depricating flash well that means I need to go to get.adobe.com and get updated junk from flash excluding spyware and other shit.
Eventually it will go away fully so.
Not much else, spent time with updates in general, also did hardware driver updates for dad’s system and my book player.
also got a battery for it.
Web testing is next week.
The private contract I am testing is in beta 2, and yeah the stuff that I put out for bugs is not fixed yet but oh well.
Ryan is back with a fortune in fridge magnets, I will never understand why people like those they are good for papers and good for the blind person to knock off the fridge but thats about all.
Its got hotter over the last little while, I know a holiday is next month where we go up north for a few days.
Over that not much is planned except for a indonesian party at the end of november.
After that its christmas.
Yeah, while not as bad as last time the space bar is doing lets double space every so often again!
Fuck you space bar!
This space bar is actually not the subject of this post its just a fun title to put out because I am out of ideas as usual.
Ok, last week, on wednesday, I quickly trained then went out to a car club with dad.
This place was basically a house, with 3 people, all of them englishmen and one woman also english.
There was a moter home or a campervan and several cars and lots of english people.
Did I say people?
You know exactly what happens when there are english about.
Oh yes you do!
Scones, shortbread and tea.
Real shortbread, not of the store but real honest to god stuff with jam, yuumm!
So yeah that was the morning.
Then lunch with grandpa, fish and chips.
Had a walk sunday, and had a designer father’s day burger, this included chutney, buns, chips, lettice, an onion and a pineapple ring, several bits of avacardo and enough chicken to feed africa.
Oh and also a grape.
Then we had a nice party thingy with roasts, cakes, lickerish and other things with the family.
Ryan gets back from his trip in roughly 1.5 weeks pritty much.
In other news I am testing.
One of the agencies I work with is doing some government testing for as yet unknown clients.
So yeah, testing is what I am doing.
They also want full access to my machine so they can see what I am doing.
They want notes and test to be done in 2 hours.
It starts in 2 weeks.
The other thing I have been doing is more testing for nasoft.
This has covered much of my waking life and will continue to do so.
The project is going well for its first beta, no its a classified project and since I don’t want to die any time soon I can’t tell much as I would like to do so.
Over that, I have been sorting out an issue with my voip service and my physical lines.
Whenever I download any data at all, and if I then use my phone line at the same time, I hear noise like the data is going into my ears and making noises like a fucking hard drive.
I am quite happy with orcon support though, so far they have changed several settings, replaced their router modules, and data cables and continue to troubleshoot the issue on their end.
I have also looked at another interactive fiction world building game, but they don’t support paypal so.
I have also got a little more digital music.
there has been a lot more storms and such, not much more to say so laters all.
Forgot to say that dad’s email profile was corrupted and I had to recreate it.
It syncs just fine now though if it minimises bits of itself you have to restart outlook.
Well yesterday went out to a cafe by riverhead called the little cottage where I had scones and things.
The drive was good but it rained.
Things to watch out for this week are more updates, a possible outing tomorrow and a router redo.
