Sorry about the bad language in this one, but I'm really p'ss'd today!  CH please moderate it if I've gone too far, but I'm ** mad.

:tantrum::tantrum::tantrum:

OK, so normally it takes me 1/2 an hour to get to work. Iit has taken be 2 and ** half hours to get to ** work because it has been ** raining for ** 24 hours. :tantrum: What the ** hell is wrong with this ** country?  :tantrum:

 :tantrum: 

Thanks for the 'really mad' smily, bruenor. I really needed it today. :icon_twisted:

Edit: Removed the worst of the language myself.  Sorry about that.  I did go a bit far.  But I'm really hacked off.

I woke up this morning feeling cold and damp about 10 minutes before my alarm went off.

I got up went to the bathroom and walked back into the bedroom.

I noticed a dark stain on the bed sheets only about 2" wide.... it was cold and wet.

I turned the light on.. bang the fusses in the house blew.

I looked up and water was dripping through the lamp shade, I reached up and tipped a load of water out all over the bed.

The water was dripping through the ceiling just around the light fitting.

So I put some clothes on... grabbed a torch and climbed up into the loft space.

The rain is coming in by along the chimeny flashing.... running down the chimney and dripping off of a projecting brick that holds the purlins up.

it then dripps onto the new board we have just boarded the attic out with, runs between the joints, and dripps onto the lathe and plaster ceiling where it has pooled around the light fitting and dripped through.

I have spent most of the morning mopping up the water and trying to stem the flow.

We had the house totally re roofed 5 years ago.

I am black from head to toe... its a 1930's house in a city which had lots of coal dust so the roof space is black from dust - the light circuit is now working.. and the roofers guarantee has just run out.

I am off for a soak in the bath. To contemplate redecorating the bedroom ceiling (the one room in the house we have totally redecorated and finished)

Do I rant  :shrug: ?

will it do any good  :shrug: ?

Oh .....

Anyone notice the news about east belfast on Tuesday, they had as much rain in an hour as they get in the whole month of June.
Whole areas were flooded and you needed a boat to travel through them.
What it showed on the news look bad.

Oh and....  :tantrum:

The questions we should be asking are these:
Does it have dungeons?
Does it have dragons?
Does it have transients who kill things for money?  Do you roll a d20?

BLOODY COMPUTERS!!!  :tantrum:
Trying to get S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl to join an on-line game and it just froze and i ended up having to press the reset button everytime i tryed.  :tantrum:
Then all the icons (yes every sodding one in all the menu's as well) changed to normal files, the registry had been buggered by the resets.  :tantrum:
I was able to copy all the stuff from the main drive to the backup and also my bookmarks, so not too bad that way.  :icon_neutral:
So i have been redoing my PC (still lots to install yet) finishing sorting out the two Laptops after Harddrive and Rom up grades today and no painting done.  :icon_tears:
Only good thing is i decided to try getting the third old laptop working as well and it did.  :icon_eek:
Think it only works with a 5 gig HD and that was the problem (got it off ebay with out a HD) and my old laptop had a 5 gig HD in it before i upgraded it to 80 gig.
If the 30 gig from my best laptop (it now has a 120 gig HD now) works in it then happydays and if i get it working i might have a buyer for it as well.  :dragon:
Did get some moulds filled up with concreate this morning before the PC meltdown  :tantrum: so i will see how well the concreate works. :wristy:

The Tour De France is running through our local area today and lots of the surrounding area (including the road I live on) is closed off to traffic as a result.

What I hadn't realised is that it'd be closed off to pedestrians, too. Popped out earlier for a sunday paper - normally a 5minute chore. Was then informed by police and marshalls that I couldn't cross the road back home again as "ther caravan of vehicles is on its way." Ended up having to take a 1h 20 minute detour to get home again.

 :cussing:

It's a good job I don't have a high-powered rifle, there's a great view of the route from my bedroom window...

Computer virus's's's's'

I hate the buggers that write them

MY AV software picked up one and sorted it but some dll s got corrupted..... no internet access from home over the weekend

so I repaired from my xp disc.. it decide I had a half bred SP1 and SP2 installation .... no updates... no IE...


Arrrrgh :tantrum:

So a wipe and total reinstall... no good.


So finally last night a total reformat.....

I still have to plough my way through the windows updates.. and I have no idea what I have lost and didn't rescue before the format yet
