Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;

The game's afoot!

The people upstairs seem to have no comprehension of how to live in a flat. We hear loud music in the daytime and they decorate in the late evening/early morning, often moving furniture around at 1 or 2 AM. The first few times, it disgruntled Mum and Cliff. The next few times, they began to go upstairs and ask them to stop, to which the family would say "sorry", and proceed to make more noise the next day. Now Mum and Cliff are going to write down how frequently they continue to annoy. It's just got silly recently.

In an attempt to resolve the printer/scanner issues, I bought a Lexmark X1150. Decent printer, but a subpar scanner and awful scanning software. Surely it can't be too hard to program something to be able to auto-crop and auto-rotate several pictures at once these days? I had that kind of scanning software on my old Primax scanner when I got it with my first PC many years ago. I'll probably take it back in the next few days if I can't find something more useful.

Other random snippits:
  • I got a Valentine's Card from Mum. Aww etc.

  • I took Fantavision back. Couldn't get into the game in the slightest, alas.

  • I bought The Sixth Sense at work on Monday. Always seemed the type of film I'd enjoy.

My life's not been too interesting recently.
