The road (sewer) works have completed today; the fencing has been taken down, the tarmac done, the traffic lights removed, no cars are tooting, no motorbikes are revving up and there is no longer a need for noisy sewage clearing at all hours of the day and night. After ten months, it's over.

I might have to go and post in the "smile" thread.

:toot:

We had some of that a few weeks ago, luckily the schools were out for most of it, but the last week they got back and it was a cacophony at letting out time.

I think that's a very long way of saying "Please don't read the small print where you can claim a refund with a 50% admin processing fee"

I've no idea what they're on about, some trains are cancelled, including mine, but loads are running on time. I'm now getting in earlier than I normally would. Calm down, LNER.

Someone from Russia has been trying to hack my accounts. Passwords have been changed, for some reason they've tried to get into my spotify and google accounts. I'm a bit weirded out to be honest.

Might be worth enrolling in Google's Advanced Protection Program if it turns into an ongoing issue.

Have you enable 2 factor auth on everything that can have it on. If not do it.
I use Authy as my 2 factor app (does what Google authenticator does but syncs tokens access devices and backs them up 2hcih is damn handy).

Yeah I've turned 2 step on now. I dont think they got far, it was lucky I was holding my phone and saw the notification that someone had logged into my google account! Managed to stop them within 15 seconds thanks to that!

Software updates that actively remove features.

Just noticed that you can no longer browse and play music directly via the Amazon Alexa web interface, which I occasionally use when I don't particularly know what I want to listen to.

Supposedly this has now been moved to a dedicated Windows app but upon downloading said app you discover that is actually a lie as you can only view your listening history and nothing else.

FFS!

You should get Zilnad's neighbour on the case.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I'm eager to hear about this. I hope it is something to do with explosions.

Wireless earbuds. For years I'd been dubious about trying wireless earbuds but they were a gift so thought, "why not, lets give them a go". The sound quality is great, I don't really need them at home though since I live alone. I guess they'll come in useful when my new neighbour gets back to refurbishing his house. Lets try them outside. Why is the music so choppy and keep cutting out? why do I practically have to hold my music player to my ear to maintain a (almost) consistent connection? Maybe its my walkman, it is an older model. Lets try my phone. Oh this is much better...wait, its keeps cutting out again. Just one bud this time. No wait, both of them. I'm glad I didn't buy them myself, it's infuriating. It's a shame, because at home (where I don't really need them) they work great and the sound quality is almost on par with my wired earphones. They just aren't reliable enough for my everyday use when travelling to and from places or going for a run

Must be getting confused with other wireless signals? That seems like a complete product killer.

They can get all your passwords stored in google mail.

I've been using 2 step for my google account for ages, don't want anyone accessing my YouTube who shouldn't be.
