trying to insert a plug in a socket in the dark.
If so, they are shit...
I'm such a doofus.
Or even twice.
You know the ones i mean.
how to use the central heating controls correctly.
I bet you're the fun housemate.
you southern wimp-face.
My housemates just stick the heating to 'on' while wearing a t-shirt, and also leave it on when they're at work.
If I had my way, he heating wouldn't have been on at all so far this year.
still infuriating though
So the heating is on 24 hours a day, even if they're not in, they're just wearing a t-shirt or if it isn't even cold (like last week when it was hot and sunny).
See how they like the heat then.
*air conditioning controls
"So, that didn't work, turns out you were right".
And can have my house as hot or cold as I like.
but getting plugging something into USB socket the right way round first, or even second time.
or get the easy peel clementine type things.
Can't believe you virgins needed a girl to post this.
How many times do I need to twist??
thought it would be easy to just open it up and tweak it. Looked up some instructions, it is ridiculously complex. I wasn't really going to risk fucking it up, so I just left it dripping.
or you can replace the whole cartridge which is more expensive but you're talking a couple of quid.
just give it six good twists
You have to ring at exactly 9am to get an appointment for that day if you're lucky, if you fail you try again at noon. If it's not urgent you can get appointments for 3 weeks time.
all that hassle
all those people
all that anger when people can't get an appointment
dealing with timewasters
Ours is awful. Like really quite rude and cold. I quite like her.
Always with the 'Has to be longer than 8 letters, with one upper case, one number, now one that's been used in the last year, it's too weak change it'
Just build them in blocks depending on how secure they need to be
so your blocks would be
[basic password that you always use] e.g. Fatty
[the year and month you are creating the password] i.e. 1411
[bit you can add on if you need to, sometimes I use the website] e.g. ebay
[another password you can add on if you really need to] e.g. FuckOff
so your basic password ends up as Fatty1411 and then Fatty1412
and your mega secure one might be Fatty1411ebayFuckOff
Some IT geek tell me why this is a bad method?
You need a random password of upper and lower, numbers and special characters
I in no way practise what I preach in regards to this though
