I just got an email (a spam one, obviously) with this as the title
Now for some reason I just think that’s great.
In the course of my current work, I use laptops a lot. I suppose desktop machines may do this too, but I don’t know – the one I use at home doesn’t really have that problem.
Anyway – whenever I turn on the laptop (whether my own, or the one at work) in the office, it’ll flag up a little notifier in the bottom-right hand corner of the screen saying something about “Unable to detect any wireless networks”.
Now, fair enough, I don’t mind it telling me that it can’t find the network. What really annoys me though, is that – particularly in the case of the work laptop – I have wireless networking switched off at the hardware switch. It’s not operating. Full stop. There’s no wireless network in the office, so it’s pointless having the damn thing turned on.
But Windows is unable to detect that actually, there’s no active hardware for finding a wireless network – so there’s no flaming chance at all of discovering that network. But it still flags up the message, every bloody day. I know there’s no wireless networks found, because the bloody sodding wireless network card is turned off, you stupid, stupid machine.
Yes, so, yesterday went a bit quiet.
Basically, we went off to Holkham, and walked Hound for two hours on the beach. It was a beautiful day, and so we just ended up sodding about, walking Hound, knackering her out completely, doing some sociable stuff and some organisational stuff at home, and I just couldn’t be chuffed to log on.
But it was a great day.
