I'm still frustrated about it though. :(

Also I ate too much sweet potato and it hurts.

Its an oldish frustration but I just got reminded of it so am being frustrated all over again...

Blinking Sky + (yes I know evil). Because the last F1 race got stopped for about 2 hours the BBC switched to BBC2 didn't it, I didn't know that until I started watching my recording later that night. One of the best races of the season so far as well. When I switched to BBC 2 is was right at the podium moment. GRRRRR :evil: :evil: :evil: It should be clever enough to move itself across channels by now surely? Watched the highlights but its not the same.

I've been an F1 fan since '75 and that race was probably in the top ten best ever. Sorry to hear you missed it but can you imagine how frustrated the people who left while it was stopped were! Then again serves the buggers right for buggering off :lol:

I avoided the news all day as well and websites in case I heard the result accidently, might have worked in my favour on that day though :roll:

My son (also an avid F1 fan) and I both shouted at the TV so loudly when Vettle slipped up on the last lap that the dogs started barking too!

'Fraid its not just Sky. My BT + doesn't distinguish when a program is over running either. I suspect these companies already have the fixes for this* but its probably not cost effective for them or the broadcasters to implement them.

* Its probably not the case but still makes for a reasonable conspiracy theory anyway. :lol:

:( Today, after more than 1 and a half years of loyal service, my trusted cordless screwdriver gave up. There was a rattling noise and I thought "Uhoh, looks like the transmission won't make it much longer." Actually, it didn't make it any longer.
Now I'll get a replacement. One of my colleagues already got one of the new ones, and it's balls.
:( :(
Not to mention the cumbersome thing I'm using now until the new one arrives.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!
