TopG removed the captcha again... but put in a "one more step" thingy beforehand... that I get almost everytime... so it's actually gotten worse, as this takes longer because the page has to load again... Sigh. :P Oct 4, 2019

        Well, with Jelle on a break as well, we are playing with the minimum amount of people, which makes for a (temporary) stranding every time the person who is allowed to post doesn't post when checking the alert.

        Jelle's also on a break? How lazy we are. :P And, as expected, I did indeed forget to post on Wednesday. :P I'll try again today. :P

      Wow. As far as I know I've never not logged in for more than 30 days (was once at 28 days I believe) for at least 5 years... and today it happened: I haven't logged in for 30 days... Turns out university takes quite a lot of time and energy. :P I'm still voting, so no worries. ;)

      Someone was to come fix my laptop for the 3rd time today. No one came. I called to see what's up. They said that the appointment was planned for today, but was somehow moved to tomorrow due to "customer unavailability". I've been at home all day. Now it'll be next week Friday >.<

        It's a very annoying issue too, so now I'll have to deal with it for 1.5 weeks longer... >.< I just want the working product I freaking paid for. :/

      As some of you might remember, I recently had some issues with my new laptop. Had is no longer. Have. :D When I turn the screen over into tablet mode, it doesn't turn to the position its held in (like it would on a phone or tablet). The keyboard also isn't shut off then. Nice. :)

        You has also (that's English for: U heeft dus ook...) a 2-in-1 laptop? I love mine! Happy to hear you fixed your problems.. best part: sitting in the evening, laptablet on your lap and then doing stuff.

        Ah, cool! It's great. :) The previous problems were fixed, but the jew problem that I described (perhaps a bit vague) in the second part of my post is now a thing. I'll have to call the manufacturer again next week... :/

      m000 ;) Sorry, maar een koe zegt boe. Dat kan je dan wel proberen te ontkennen maar het neemt niet weg dat het een feit is dat dat dier nu eenmaal boe of m00 zegt. Sommige schrikken daarvan. En dan krijg je mafkezen zoals ik die hier dan een mini-opstel van maken op je profiel. Hmm... kan dit je een hoger cijfer voor iets opleveren? ;) ok, ok... Hoi Tom! Denk meld me even :)

        Hoi! :D Een hoger cijfer voor mijn meest recente status, hmm zou wel fijn zijn - ik had gehoopt op een mailtje terug van die vent (dat is het correcte woord, was een 6e jaars ofzo... :P), maar heb nog niks gekregen... hopelijk komt dat nog... :P

      I had to hand something in for school at 23:59 (or earlier of course :P). I handed it in at 23:59, because I'm me, aaaaaaand it refused to take it because it was "past the deadline"... seems like they actually give you a minute less than they tell you. Lovely. :)

        Yeah, apparently it was 23:59 (so 23:58) indeed. :P They probably just didn't think about/aren't able to allow for those weirdos who hand it in at the last minute. :P

      So the laptop guy came today. Speaker cable wasn't plugged in... got new speakers anyways cuz yay. Back cover was dented indeed, got a new one. Also lightly dented, but that's apparently supposed to be so. New motherboard too. Still makes some electrical noise, but less. Happy :D

        Currently have a new 2019 IdeaPad, but the screen's having a lot of trouble that if it's not on night vision when unplugged, it tries to play a song with the brightness going up and down.... -.- so annoying. That's the only real issue... Tis why I was asking. (plugged in, it's ok)

      Ugh. Had to make an account on a site, did so, waited for an activation email. The activation email only came at 4:43 AM, and said that it worked for 1 hour... that turned out to be true: the code doesn't work anymore, but I can't get into the account either nor remake it... >.<

        It's ov-chipkaart.nl... :P Was going to call them, but then thought of a better idea: just add spaces in my username to create a new account, which worked. :D It's quite poor though, for almost all issues they suggest to just make a new account.... >.<

        It is indeed. :P The site to make an OV chipkaart itself was also somewhat janky, and it said that it takes them up to 6 WORKdays to make the card... which is ridiculously long in my opinion... I hope it won't be more than that, otherwise I'll get it too late... >.<

      New laptop: cool! Issues with keyboard though. Repaired. Issues with speakers. Repair soon. Also today suddenly dented in on the underside. Repair soon. Oh it also makes weird electrical noises. Likely repair soon. Oh and the screen is crooked when closed. Great support though :P

        And I now I realise that I typo'd "they" into "tgey"... I also typo'd "they" into "thry" in the main status (but edited it)... seems like my phone's touchscreen in combination with my fingers doesn't like the word "they"... :P (in general my touchscreen is terrible, sadly.)
