Yep agreed but I'll take any respite offered.

I got summoned to be a jury member at my local crown court (UK) and had to start yesterday. I travelled on a 30 mile round trip - from my house to court and back - and sat from 9am to 4pm yesterday, and from 10am to 3pm today in a shitty room without being called to attend any trial. At 3pm, we were told that we could go home and that we wouldn't be needed tomorrow (Wed), but that we could come back on Thursday.
Two hours later, I get a text message from the f**king crown court service telling me they are sorry for the inconvenience but now I have to go back in at 1.45pm tomorrow.
f**king disorganized, piss-taking idiots who don't know their arse from their elbow, and clearly have no respect for members of the public - wasting their time (and not getting paid), sat in a shitty room for two f**king days doing nothing.
I have much better f**king things to do than waste my holidays - my only time to have a holiday given my job commitments - travelling on a 30 mile round trip every day to be f**ked around like this by the incompetent f**king wankers.
No wonder people rightly think the UK justice system is an utter shambles. f**king court c**ts.
the bright side of "mental health" issues. i have been removed from that list :D

...
TBH, the process is enough to give me (more) mental health issues :hihi:

Dead internet connection when I got home yesterday. Took well over an hour to get through to report it, wont get an engineer until Monday.

Werkstatt blew up.

Koma Field Kit speaker driver output seems dead.

In absence of the "What has made you scratch your head today" thread: Jan Ulrich. How low can a person sink? Completely f***ed up by drugs and alcohol. Almost Charlie Sheen-esque dimensions. I mean, you can also be completely f***ed up by drugs and alcohol, and not assault other people, and women. One of those "get overrun by a truck and no big loss to mankind" cases. Self-important f***s who make others suffer for their personal issues.

Can't activate Stutter Edit, no matter what I (and the support guy) do. All I get is 'Invalid response'.

You can still order some on the net. Windows Phone is a dead OS though. Rumours are that Microsoft will even release an Android phone soon.

Bad news, Android is not suitable for aged people (*) who can't even remember their email adress because after a factory reset, factory reset protection disables them forever or you have to take them to an authorized service center and prove that you have actually purchased it.

(*) i.e. not a good idea to buy one for your dad or mom.

My dad and mom both have Android phones. :P But then, they have their email adresses, and credentials written down on a piece of paper, just like you should, and are unlikely to lose those.

Certainly not pissed off, just curious.

Why is it 64 bit and not 64 bits?

Because its referring to the length of a data word.

So if a word is 8 bits long, its an 8-bit word.

Compare with 'two-mile walk', for example; we dont use 'two-miles walk'
