    This.

    MEC is junk. There's a reason only Framus/Warwick and sketch builders from Soviet Block countries use them.

    Since most of them have JB or MM size PUs, just swap them. I know it's some $ but German made Warwick are so worth it.

    Quit my job Saturday, couldn’t take the incompetence anymore.

    Decided to go back to school, get things in order and my old boss calls me and asks if I want to go back to MI for a month for like $8k.

    I really don’t want to but I really want that $, so...

    Donated to some online streamer in April. Today, finally my eye catched a weird payment on my bank transaction history and realised that instead of a one-time donate, I unknowingly started this monthly payment thing. 30 euros down the drain. I feel like Homer Simpsons giving his credit card number to a dancing moose...

    The shop I work at is getting sold. After we closed the Bobs came in so everybody could have a job interview for the job we already have. I was supposed to be getting a raise, but apparently, I'm so damn good at my job, not only can they not afford to give me a raise, but they didn't say anything about the fact I was drinking a beer during my job interview. :coffee:

    When was the last time that happened? Back in the Mad Men days?

    I was laying in bed with my lovely wife this morning as the sunlight was subtly filtering in and as I looked at her, I swear she looked a bit like Frank Zappa. Now I'm not sure if I'm bisexual or if I just need to replace the bedroom curtains.

    The latest version of VirtualBox crashes every time a VM is starting, apparently because of some missing permission crap, and the only solution seems to be to run it as root. And I just don't want to.

    EDIT: Ha! I disabled audio in the VM and now it works without root. Still, what a hassle...

    I've been ignoring the update nag screen in VirtualBox lately, and now I'm glad I did.

    Yeah, apparently the problem started after version 6.1, so I'd recommend staying below that for now.

    We wanted to buy a house as we kind of decided to stay here for a few more years. Made an offer for a house on mid July and a process that takes 8-12 weeks is at week 15 with no completion date in sight. We initially spoke with the vendors solicitor for the coming Friday two weeks ago and was told it was doable. Now they're just avoiding our solicitors calls. So I asked our solicitor to give them until Friday for a completion date otherwise we're walking. Contracts have not been signed from their part so deal is not concluded.

    Seems like we need to go through the process again and thank you unprofessional sack of shit for wasting 15 weeks of my time. I honestly don't know how some people are still in business.
