    I use the virtual keyboard on my phone so that does that make me?

    You must have dainty fingers .
    When I use mine it 50:50 if what I pressed comes up on the screen .
    And then predictive text changes it to something else anyway , do I guess it doesn't matter anyway .
    Bluetooth keyboard and mouse sounds handy , but if I were to mess about with them I might as well just turn the computer on .

    The Linux Desktop has just been annoying the hell out of me. It's so busy being different from Apple and Microsoft that it's unusable for an idiot like me. After spending 30 minutes trying to copy half a dozen files I gave up and dropped into the terminal. Two minutes later the job was done. :mad:

    Totally bemused at what you have just said. Dropped into the terminal? You fell??

    Can't get speakers until Thursday. Ah well, if desperate, I'll try plugging in some old headphones. Well, one of the plugs anyway - the other one being for the microphone. :( Don't know if that will work though.

    Hmm. Neighbours' yappy dog wriggled under the fence and bit my wife. We are not amused.

    You have a remedy if you choose to use it...

    Yes, I'm aware of that. She's a yappy little thing but I'm not keen on either her or her owners being 'punished' - they just need to train/control her better. And fix the hole under the fence. ;)

    That's horrible, my sympathies I can't imagine not being able to do that

    I got an iPad from our son! Setting it up and sorting passwords across four devices has been challenging! I hate paswords

    Really sorry to hear that.
    Letting our pets go is hard enough, without not being able to hold them in the end.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    The ungratefulnes of some creatures. Found a wasp in the en suite earlier and decided not to go all the way downstairs for the swatter, but to let the poor thing live. So I took a couple of sheets of bog roll and covered it on the window and tried to pick it up gently to put it out of the window. It stung me on end of the thumb.

    So I went and got the swatter.

    My hand would be like a boxing glove by now. I'm really not good with stings.

    I've yet to find anything positive to say about wasps. Even the name is horrible. I'm sure Chris Packham will be along in a minute and tell me what wonderful creatures they are...
