    I bought my current laptop abroad and the keyboard is effectively Spanish. No problem, I speak Spanish.
    However I changed the layout back to the UK one in Windows and now not all they keys represent what they truly are. The Em Dash being one of them. I swear ive tried every key, shift-key, alt-key and I still can't find it.

    That is much less feasible than him moving to the UK, as things stand at the moment. Plus the fact that I don't drive. I'd kinda have to if I live out there, as CT can't drive me all the time.

    Yeah, from experience, moving to the States is not easy and definitely not cheap and even after spending the time, money, and energy, it isn't exactly assured. And my experience was a decade ago, so I don't imagine it's gotten any easier of late.

    My wife was expecting one of her oldest and dearest friends for a visit this weekend. They have been planning this visit for months, and since it's something important to my wife, over the past few days I have been busting ass to finish getting the house clean and presentable. And now she’s not coming. Something got screwed up at her job and she can’t have the weekend off. It’s not a total loss- the house is clean- but my wife has been looking forward to this for a while, and I hate to see her disappointed.

    My car crapped out on the way to work today. We have roadside assistance through our cell phone plan, but it's still much easier to arrange automotive repair when the shop is open.

    Morning week.

    I thought I'd hate evening weeks more but I never get enough sleep during morning weeks and it's a day longer which just makes it worse.

    Only good thing about it is that it's likely to be a bit less warm than the after noon shifts.

    I guess this is mostly an update from the last post but... today's been hell, everything's fine wrong and I've got a massive headache.

    Next step of the day is making food, trying not to fall asleep before nine and do something useful... or maybe just nap in the sofa until Lost gets off work.

    Go to the beach and relax for a few days or potato couch surf your way into oblivion/health. I say milk it for everything it's worth!

    I just spoke to the shop working on my car. It's going to run about $900 to fix. The whole intake manifold has to be replaced.

    Mopar. Take your pick... My Old Pig Ain't Running, More Old Parts And Rust, Move Over People Are Racing. I'm sure there're a few more too.

    For anyone who noticed a bunch of posts disappear here recently, there was a minor spill that didn't hurt anything, so I had to mop up a bit. No issues, nothing to see, carry on.

    It's not a mod hat I'm wearing now, but it is still part of the uniform.

    Wasn't it a Cyberdyne Systems model 101, series 800? The six hundred series had rubber skin. We spotted them easy. :D

    Yep T-800 was more human in size and look than the larger T-600 model.

    I have a student in one of my classes who, in genetics, hairstyle, and choice of clothing looks quite similar to a well-known animated character but I can't say anything for fear of embarrassing them or otherwise seeming inappropriate...

    Aaack!

    Yeah. The other day it started raining and my ankle started screaming at me, "Hey, dude, remember that one time you tried too acid drop into a 12' pipe?"

    Seeing that pic above had a cog click in me – now realise these two are related.

    I'm trying to figure out if you're not happy about the resemblance to a well-known animated character or the fact you can't tell us any more about the animated character. The frustration must stem from somewhere. Choices, choices....

    Hey! Just realized this! Nope, Seeker is about 20 years before SkyNet, as a ghost-in-the-machine thing. I do pay homage to the genre though, with a few names and dates. :D
