Aww :( Our family cats both lived to 20 or more, and it's still sad to kind of look for them out of habit when I'm at my parents.

Bitch about getting put on today (Saturday) to work, when I'm going away to the wheatbelt for work all this week. It's not like I'd like to be a family man on the weekend before going away or anything. Bitching will happen on Monday.

Yup, 1995-2003 roughly. I think flamecondor was there at some point too.

Myself and the wife have been in a rocky mood all long weekend, working overnight tonight and missing the Ninty broadcast, work is probably going to be slowing down in coming weeks, so no idea what I'll be doing if it's dead over winter.

My exams are bunched together on the last two days of the whole exam period.

This means MULTIPLE things

1.) Everyone finishes before me
2.) I started studying two weeks before, and as such has lost all motivation to CONTINUE STUDYING
3.) By the time I start tomororw, I will have lost any and all motivation to continue as I have spent so much time literally doing full-time study without any breaks through work of VIDYA GAEMZ.

WOE IS ME but thankfully I will be destroying my liver sometime this weekend to compensate =3

and I cannot wait

I remember years ago, saying you planned on drinking would elicit a response like OH GOD MAN YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO DRINK TO HAVE FUN GUY.
I like that we've grown up :P
Good luck and junk.

Try deleting clientregistry.blob from the Steam folder.

Failing that, remove Steam >_>

Ah that old chestnut. Did they name it "DOT BLOB" just to troll everyone, or does it stand for something?

Who knows, but you probably cure a child of a major illness somewhere in the world everytime you delete it. It's THAT miraculous.

Obviously life has been treating us all well for the last month! Or alternatively, our bitches were so serious that we actually had to stay the real world and get through them. Or maybe we were all to busy looking for Valve's PO Box so we could send them our wallets...

Y'anywayy, the battery in my laptop (5 year old Compaq) has just packed it in. Only mildly annoying, as the battery life was never that great in the first place, so I took the cord anyway. But now I obviously can't make it to the other end of the house, let alone uni, without a shutting down. So on the plus side, I might be in the market for a new laptop sometime. On the plus side, until then, it will be at least half a kilo lighter! :P

eBay my friend! Gf's HP laptop battery is pretty woeful at best, want to get a higher capacity one... around $60 on eBay... then again, upgrading a 5 year old Compaq is a definite plus!

Cheers for the tip. For some reason I always assumed that batteries would be really really expensive.

Uh, be sure you get a real battery and not some dodgy Chinese ripoff. That's bad juju territory right there.

Also bitch about being sick lots this week, also having to go to work today!

WORKING ON A SATURDAY, YAY. FAREWELL DREAMS AND HOPES.

A guy in the year below me at medschool was killed yesterday after a hit and run accident in the early hours of the morning. He was struck by TWO cars, neither of which stopped. The driver of the second car called the police when she got home 20 minutes post-incident, and by the time the ambulance found him he was already dead.

Another grave day for society. I do not understand how anybody could just drive away from that situation. He died painfully and alone, bleeding out in the middle of the road. RIP Gabe.

I can see why nobody has posted here for a while... Anything seems petty after that last post. :(
Hit and run is terrible, I can only hope friends and family affected are managing.


Onto my petty grievances, I've been feeling lousy for the last 4 days. Vaguely the same sickness that has been coming and going for the last couple of months. Starts with a sore throat, and becomes fever, soreness of joints, headaches. No fun at all.
At least the cough didn't come back.
But yeah, it's basically left me house bound for the weekend and made work (I assume) less than happy with the fact I took time off work to deal with the sickness.
Hoping this goes away ASAP :\

Your work should go eat a pie. A pie full of UNCOOKED LEMONS. It's stupid how they lack perspective, given how many sick days you have saved up. And the reason they're saved up is because you've NOT taken lots of sick days over the years.

I'd like to bitch about the seasonal lack of work hours at the moment, and my in-limbo relationship with mai waifu.

@Catfish - Sounds like classic flu, did you get a flu needle this year? Worth thinking about in the future considering where you work. Rest + fluids + panadol as needed should tide you over until you shake it off :)

I will never understand why a workplace would want you to come in while you're sick. Not only are you incapacitated and most probably not working to your full potential, but you're also more likely to cost the company money by making others sick and therefore reducing productivity even more.

Some managers / bosses / supervisors should BE A BIT SMARTER tbh

They're very 'oh don't come in if you're sick, you'll get better faster at home!' but then they have also withheld temporary advancement opportunities/alternative duties due to me taking a recent stint off work with this bastard flu. So yeah :\

At least when I do go in sick, they're willing to let me do MENIAL duties like data entry. Means a day of music/podcasts while gradually getting through a workload that is relatively stress free.

I called in sick today and it resulted in another employee having to deal with the cleaning duties of two people as well as coping with the 12 hour shift she had been put on in order to cover other shortcomings. The staffing is absolutely terrible; one sickie in my department cripples the operation completely. :|

But yeah, the sickness... overnight SURPRISE COCKFAG head cold resulting in headaches, stuffy sinuses and general fatigue and muscle aches. Already skipped doing any study today in lieu of any concentrating power whatsoever... hopefully I'm fine by the morning.

For the first time in a few years, no I actually missed the flu needle. They normally organise it at work, but I was on holiday at the time. I should have realised and got it myself I guess.
All the fluids and panadol!

Thanks Dr. Mel!
