For Smiles in particular, who expressed an interest in Joe Bonamassa. This is him backing Beth Hart, who has done a number of albums with him over the years and they really compliment each other. A new one is on the way later this year.
Despite being a committed Brexiter I have always been hopelessly in love with Europe so, a couple of weeks ago I took a 45 minute torture course – well, Easyjet from Luton – to a wonderfully attractive city
where I rented a suitable local method of transport for Mme and the pair we went with
A while back I said here, that I will not help people with Windows 10. Breaking that promise, I did help someone, who had installed the upgrade from windows 7 to 10. He could neither print, nor scan. And what a mess it was.
In the past you bought common, middle of the road hardware from reputable manufacturers and it worked with Windows.
Well, screw that. The HP thing did not work. And when you want to download the HP software, you have to register at the Microsoft store, and probably the HP store, and with Satan, I guess. Wait, that was repetitive.
In any case, getting the printer / scanner to work in Windows 10 was worse, than any fiddling I had to do with Linux ever. Even a decade ago. So, that was it. No Windows 10 support from me. If you insist on having it, fix it yourself. Or pay someone. I am out of that.
On to good news, we did hundreds of updates to our little server. You did not notice. Because – let me emphasize that:

I had intended to write a series of 3 posts – one for in, one for out and one to compare and balance my OUT, OUT, OUT.
What the EC has become is not what we voted for in 1975. Free trade area YES, political union NO – never.
On reflection, however, I decided it was pointless. Who cares what I think? Who reads diablog that it might change their mind? The world around me is full of wanker breast beating touchy feely arseholes who couldn’t decide whether to pull out a splinter from their thumb in case it infringed the Rights of Thorns.
Maybe it is me who is the wanker. Maybe using a whistle in the school playground is ‘aggressive’, maybe the gagging of freedom of opinion in British universities is a good thing, maybe the USA isn’t (politically) a shit hole of a nation populated by ignorant warmongers – maybe I should learn to love my fellow man.
Naaah – they stink, I’ll stick to women.
So, what to do. I feel I must write something but there’s too much to say.
