our tech support 2…

Dear diablog,

I really struggled as to the order in which to offer the two ‘Tech Support’ items sent by our ladies as they arrived within hours of each other.

It probably doesn’t matter, but Engine Room is very aware of ‘competitive females’ for some reason and lectures me incessantly.

I, in my innocence, had always thought that I had to compete for females but it would appear that I got that one very wrong – apparently.

Bless him though, Engine Room has helped me through computer glitches on more occasions than I would dare admit – and without one word of reproach.

It would seem not to be the case for Erikaerika3

who has kept note of one of her recent attempts to conquer a problem and writes:

Resetting The Password

“Sorry, your password has been in use for 30 days and has expired – you must
register a new one.”


“Sorry, too few characters.”

pretty roses

“Sorry, you must use at least one numerical character.”

1 pretty rose

“Sorry, you cannot use blank spaces.”


“Sorry, you must use at least 10 different characters.”


“Sorry, you must use at least one upper case character.”


“Sorry, you cannot use more than one upper case character consecutively.”


“Sorry, you must use no fewer than 20 total characters.”


“Sorry, you cannot use punctuation.”


“Sorry, that password is already in use.”


So there you have it – and well put!

Yours, diablog, passepartout

  1. As I have had no reply about Scurby’s(ER) new nickname, I take it he loves it so much that he’s out telling the world.

    I too would like to add many thanks to Scurbs as he has helped me with mega stuff.

    LOL (RUUUUUUNNNN) !! Haha. Holy moly. I can’t breathe hahaha…



    1. I hope so Glynsky, as the last time I called him shrimpy he nearly fell out with me. Stating that he already finds it difficult to feel confident when with a woman, and as a friend I should be encouraging him. I tried jumbo shrimp and that didn’t work either, I hope he sees my efforts on his new name Scurby.



  2. Dear Casper
    How dare you call or beloved ER by the name of Scurby? I looked it up and it is defined as a low life piece of trash.
    I have only met ER once but he is kind, amusing and very intelligent.
    In future keep your comments to the playground.

    1. Hey Smiles,

      I too searched the word and couldn’t find it. As I made it up and it has no meaning in my eyes apart from that it sounds funny.

      I understand that we all have different levels of what we consider appropriate, and me and ER differ greatly, but i know his boundaries and to push him every now and then I find amusing, as he does with me.

      But with that said I will not be calling him that as somewhere on the internet(and you must have searched hard), a definition of scurb exists LOL. Thanks for the headsup.

      As for the comments,playground,yes yes yes, I get it you are all serious and stuff, but I will nat be joining your serious crew, I write as I am, if any more are not happy I can take my comments elsewhere. And also not that it needs to be said but my comments are not and will never be malicious, no matter what their ‘said’ meaning is.

      Have a lovely evening.



  3. One more thing Smiles.

    Please look at your own comments.

    You aren’t what I would call a saint. Or is it only okay for the men to joke?



    1. Smiles,

      What is your point/argument/reply?.

      This is the second time you have said something that SEEMS purposefully spiteful towards me.

      I am not going to accept being verbally abused everytime you feel like it.
      If you have a problem, don’t speak to me. If you have a point, make it. If I am wrong I will apologise.



  4. Hi Casper
    Mr smiles was a little rude.
    I know him well enough to realise that it was intended as a joke and not meant to be unkind, although the playground remark was pushing the limit !
    In his defence he had a terrible weekend whilst watching the slow death of his and my football team.
    The fact he is writing to anyone, and not locked in a soundproof dark room is impressive.
    If anyone upsets you again let me know, and I will personally book one of Glynsky’s mafia family to have the matter dealt with

    1. Hey Pete,

      You are very sweet and absolutely adorable… And have made me smile truly and deeply.

      Thank You :).

      It is nice for you to speak for him, but it means nothing when it is done that way. I expect nothing from him. I really don’t have much to say really.

      But again may I just add how lovely you are!!!
