Inchcock Today: Fri 12th Sept 2014

WF1

Woke up several times as usual during the night. A very active Arthur Itis in me left knee still visiting and a new tummy ache – but more concerning at the moment, Montezuma’s revenge (diarrhoea) each time I woke up I utilised the porcelain pot!

As I write this, I’ve been up about half an hour, laptop on, made cuppa and took me morning medications and I’ve been back up to the WC twice already. No make that three times… back in a bit…

 I was only just in time. Oh dear, that was unpleasant.

Looked at some blogs, checked emails. Then worked on creating graphics for me next post – However, for some reason when I tried to export me art to jpeg, it would only export as monochrome!!! Confused, I searched the web for help, but could find none applicable to me problem?

Whether it was Coreldraw or the laptop causing the error I don’t know.

Frustrated, I finished using mono smudges and gave up.

Took the rubbish out to the bins.

I had to call BT, about my free upgrade as advertised in their letter to me, as the link address given in the letter did not work, and I had to use the mobile (Cause the BT land-line is crap, I can’t hear anything cause of the noise in the background) and the foreign sounding gentleman’s voice from gawd knows where didn’t help. After (I hope) refusing his offer of my buying a new phone, and an upgrade to Super-Infinity web connection, I pointed out that the letter in my hand from BT said: “Your Free upgrade to BT Infinity is ready and waiting for you to claim. Superfast broadband for the same pice as your paying now! It’s easy and completely Free!”

He pointed out that the costs all round were going up in two weeks. Would I like a TV compatible whatever it was he said. “No, I do not have a TV set.” That shook him, he went silent for a few a seconds.

So it transpired that I can expect my new modem to be delivered on Friday 19th between 0700hrs and 1800hrs. I asked at this point if it is easy to set up, or have I got ot contact someone and the line went dead! 

Got a wash up, and went on a walk to the Nottingham Hospice Charity shop with some stuff.

Stopped off at continental shop and got some bread and boscek.

Then after dropping off me stuff at Hospice place, I called at a computer shop in Sherwood and asked them if they could supply me with a laptop powerful enough to cope with Coreldraw, and a Coreldraw programme disc, and how much would it cost if so – they could not.

I crossed the road and tried at another computer shop, “Could you supply me with a laptop powerful enough to cope with Coreldraw, and a Coreldraw programme disc, and how much would it cost if you could – they could not.”

I caught the bus into town, and called at the first computer on Mansfield Road, asking them “Could you supply me with a laptop powerful enough to cope with Coreldraw, and a Coreldraw programme disc, and how much would it cost if you could – they could not.”

Went a few shops up to the other computer shop “Could you supply me with a laptop powerful enough to cope with Coreldraw, and a Coreldraw programme disc, and how much would it cost if you could – they could not.”

Went to computer shop on Upper Parliament Street, “Could you supply me with a laptop powerful enough to cope with Coreldraw, and a Coreldraw programme disc, and how much would it cost if you could – they could not.”

Frustrated beyond tolerance I walked to PC World and asked the same question there: they could not.

Really down now.

Caught the bus back to the flea-pit, bitter, twisted, annoyed and pissed-off!

Tried again to sort out what the problem really is using internet Coreldraw-help-pages (Thanks Mike) but no luck at all.

A bitter old man tonight – but hey-ho, monochrome will have to do for the foreseeable future for Inchy. (SHIT!)

Hah!, and double Hah! Me radio’s stopped working now!

1600hrs: I tried removing Coreldraw9 and reinstalling it – oh dear, here I go…

1720hrs: No such luck, still not working properly!

Huh!

Now the yobs are lurking again! Am I pee’d off!
