Proves that Cheltenham
is not the posh place some people think it is.
Behind the impressive older buildings it can be rather dumpy.
And a Wetherspoons proves it.
I only go for the model shop

Only 7 is suitable, oh and out of support of course XP
10 is a support nightmare
Removal of network discovery.
Changing of printer drivers breaking reports written years ago.
The happiness to kill of a working network installed executable simply because of a fraction of a second drop out despite being idle.
Only 11 years to go!
One company know about all of my online activity using it for games
And I think Nintendo use it as well.
Playing games without someone knowing is not easy, many are on line based, of the others many require a connection for updates and the like.
Even single player for game saves and trophies.
But at least it isn't Microsoft
I have had this, try to think of new one each month.
Now I am a railway enthusiast so chose the following
month 1 - dreadnought
month 2 - superb
month 3 - temeraire
month 4 - stvincent
All from the Platform 5 book of regularly changed memorable passwords
4 years worth
left there fortunately before I got too far down the list
Least worse option is the best description.
I would say a political nerd with poor interpersonal skills. Naive also, but not evil. Possibly easily lead.
To level things Corbyn is a well meaning, well spoken, appear reasonable, at first appearances talks sense but very soon you realise it is a lack of in depth knowleage, and that what he said is not actually possible.
To be honest we have few really capable MPs at the moment, but then isn't it always so?
There will be some new blood in both main parties soon, it is very likely that the next PM will not be a household name.
Now to defend them.
Most people become politicians because they want a better place. Regardless of party and capability, most of them want to improve our lot. It is just that we tend to see the useless ones on TV a lot and not nice ones also get prominence.
The parties are also self destructive, examples, the battle between Labour members and Parliamentry party, the party suiciders of the Euroskeptic Conservatives (like Lord Snooty). However Labour did in the past manage to chose leaders with a lot of appeal at the time (remember how Tony Blair was welcomed). Yet Conservatives will often go for non entities (Ian and Duncan Smith), over people the public would like (eg Ken Clarke).
Cameron was Blair light, Other Milliband was Blair comedy tribute, Mr now working for Facebook was between a rock and a hard place.
I have a long lost of MPs I dislike and a shorter one of ones I like. But like most people I tend to centrist.
The general view does appear to be that Theresa May is doing the best she can and that neither ERG or Labour would do better.
She does appear to be pragmatic and prepared to do what she has to.
OK I think leaving is a mistake but the TM deal is a LOT better than no deal.
Drove along a nice lane (BOAT) about 1/2 a mile, through the really rough bits and....
About 50m from the other end a 2m high pile of fly tipped rubbish.
Too high to drive over even.
Had to reverse out.
IF I see a fly tipper I will rip the limbs off the tipper using a Land Rover in low range, strop around ankles and pull.
What is funny is that I do not miss them.
Too much decent FTA TV to watch without downloading rips from US TV of average series. Oh look Penguins.
OSes are either free (Linux) or not worth pirating (W10).
Plenty of free or shareware software (Libre Office, Firefox).
I have paid for video editing packages in the past
<===== no idea how it got its head
Westons or Healeys.
Oh I have, both, and bought stuff in their shops.
Still got the Westons sharpie pens, (I drunk everything else).
Pity laws stop some marketing on some stuff as a boy wanted a Healeys main brand cider pump. I wanted a sticker of the logo.
BTW same family as the car Healey.
Sorry but if you bring up the subject of apples I will bring up the subject of fermented apples.
I expect I will still have log in details and remote access, hopefully still the phone number. might even keep the key.
There is a way to leave a job but still have access.
Especially as I may need to help.
11 years to go then I will finally have time to do the important things.
