Had a bit of melon. It’s been years since I had a melon.
I used my makita cordless jigsaw the other day, put the battery on charge, went to use it yesterday and it's not working, the battery is fine, the guide light on the saw lights up but no cutting will happenOh, there are cave paintings of early man bashing printers to death with rocks and my relationship with my printer is like that between John Connor and the Terminator. Typically, a printer that had been working perfectly for a couple of years decided to become a problem when I started working from home and had a shedload of documentation to print out. ‘I don’t like the wifi anymore. And I’ve become very, very thirsty so I want a lot more ink than usual’. I tried uninstalling and getting the latest drivers. I thought I’d buy a new one but everywhere was in lockdown…. and of course working from home too. Domestic Printers - like wifi dongles were suddenly in short supply.
In the end I bought a cable from amazon so at least I have some connection.
I reckon it’s the wifi or Bluetooth or something but I don’t want to give the damn thing the satisfaction of any more attention.
Trying to get my expensive, (relatively-) new HP Envy Pro printer to work.
I was simply trying to print off some B&W rifle targets from PDFs I have on my laptop, a task I've accomplished scores of time previously. This time? The printer simply sticks out its tin lower lip and snaps "No!" like a stroppy 2-year old.
I've powered the router on & off, also the printer. I've connected the two via hard cable to run HP's own diagnostic tool, only to find out that it's about as much use as Anne Frank's bagpipes. Rinse & repeat.
I currently have an expensive, awkward paperweight and a blood pressure in phone numbers.
Time for tiffin, I think.
It can leave you dehydrated by morning, or your core body temperature may fall too low.Not meaning to rub it in but I wouldn't be able to cope at the moment without my bedroom fan on all night at the moment. The Mrs told me last night it's bad for me to leave it all night. That's a new one on me. Has anyone else here heard this advice before?.
Is the battery completely inserted? Check that. Also, check to see if there is an internal fuse.I used my makita cordless jigsaw the other day, put the battery on charge, went to use it yesterday and it's not working, the battery is fine, the guide light on the saw lights up but no cutting will happen
To be fair though. most people don't drink enough clear fluids most of the time so they'll also forget to do that during a heatwave .. = dehydration.It can leave you dehydrated by morning, or your core body temperature may fall too low.
I doubt that it'd kill most people.
I've done it before and felt dehydrated and ill in the morning, with a backache.
I've checked all the bits that are easily accessible I will have to strip it down and delve more deeply, as I said there is power coming from the battery to the machine enough to power the guide light above the blade but the cutting jig has no power going to it.Is the battery completely inserted? Check that. Also, check to see if there is an internal fuse.
What do you mean 1950's? We only have 1 an hour here weekdays, not that we live in the country.Cursing Covid (again!) - during the current lockdown, bus services are now running on a Sunday timetable. One bus per hour. It's like being in the 1950s again! (not that I was around in the fifties, I was barely around in the seventies!)
Well done for sparing it!Screaming like a girl and ripping my t shirt off in the garden.
I'm removing two compost bins and their contents. I coaxed a massive spider out of compost bin, as phobic as I am of them I don't want to kill them.
A couple of minutes later I felt a tickle on the back of my neck. I scratched it and said massive spider ran down across the front of my t shirt. so I ripped off my t shirt sending said spider flying. It is now sat in the long grass.
