There's two strips of lights that run the length of the office and every single morning, one of the strips is off and people are sat in the dark working. I'll turn them on (The switch is right in the middle) and someone will go, "Oh wow, light! I wondered why it was so dark".

Turn the strawberry floating lights on then.

One of the teams I worked in a couple of years ago insisted on having the lights off all the time. We worked in a room with one tiny window so it was bloody dark and I tried to point out to them that sitting in a dark room looking at bright computer monitors was probably not great from a health and safety perspective, but they just couldn't wrap their heads around it :fp:

Now the lights are all automatic.


We have automatic lights in our office, and when I'm in on my own on a Sunday afternoon, they tend to turn off after a few minutes and I have to wave my arms about to trigger the sensor again. Annoying as strawberry float.

Set up a desk fan pointing at a balloon on a string under the sensor?

Ours seem pretty good and require very little movement, also each is independent of others so your bit of the office will be lit while the rest is off, which is good. Slightly creepy in the call centres at night if you are one end as the other end is pitch black.

No Context Hearn on twitter - it was maybe funny for the first couple of times you saw it but give it a strawberry floating break now. It's more virulent than ebola at the moment.

It involves taking things said by Eddie Hearn, a boxing promoter from Essex out of context in numerous ways. Rex is right, kinda funny for abit but done to death now.

He's a big name in the boxing world but you wouldn't have heard of him outside that.

The new group tabs feature in android chrome being turned on by default. It just adds extra steps in navigating between tabs, who thought this was a good idea?

The electricity meter replacement process. government / UK Power Network / Electricity supplier

> Your meter must be replaced
> Okay [arranges day and time]
> We can't do it because the backing board inside the cabinet may contain asbestos. You need to get it checked and possibly replaced
> Huh? I have to check inside the meter cabinet and get parts checked / changed myself before you'll replace the meter?
> Yes
> [Sequence of endless phone calls and complaint processes begins]

I'm not sure how long it'll take before I get to the "strawberry float off, I'll leave it as it is" point.
