Some advice on a mysterious beeping noise in my house.
at 19:28 11 Jan 2019

So a few nights ago it sounded like the fire alarm was beeping. Even though the fire alarms are mains powered I replaced the batteries in both and the noise seemed to stop beeping after I tested the alarms.

Last night the beeping returned. Took the alarms off again thinking maybe one of them is faulty and the beeping continued. Sounds like it's coming from the hall but there is nothing else electric there other than a light. At around 3am it just stopped beeping.

Now it's started again so did the same thing, took the alarms and and stuck them in a completely different room to the sound. Turned the mains off and... Still bloody beeping. Checked the loft, moved the insulation and there's nothing there.

Any idea what the fook it could be before I get an emergency callout? I can't have another night's sleep with it going.

COP24 didn't adopt the climate change report

And look who it is:
"Scientists and many delegates in Poland were shocked as the US, Saudi Arabia, Russia and Kuwait objected to this meeting "welcoming" the report."

Wonderful. Their selfishness and greed will continue and there will be a point of no return. If we could trade countries taking this seriously with the UK doing the hardest of the Brexits I would take it in a heartbeat...

Thoughts on this Government petition

Ban the sale of fireworks to the public. Displays for licenced venues only.

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/231147

A few years back I'd have been dead against this, mainly cos I've either lived in the middle of nowhere and they've never bothered me or because I've been in a city centre where again nobody is setting them off.

Moved to the suburbs and I'm kind of amazed how bad it can be. The other day an old lady and her dog had fireworks shot at them not at all far from me. Yesterday there was a massive fire near the Notts Country ground that looks like it was set off by fireworks. I've seen some horrible videos and pictures on how it effects pets and my own dog is absolutely terrified for a whole week every evening.

Still on the fence as to whether they need to be completely banned to the public as it seems overkill but wouldn't mind seeing more restrictions on when and where they can be set off legally

Chris Evans' wife has given birth to twins - a boy and a girl.

Fooking Ping and Pong.

tl;dr The main method of authentication for Wifi has been cracked and basically everything uses it. Not much you can do except wait for patches. Anything that uses HTTPS should be ok for time being.

Not sure what to do about a friend of mine I think may be in trouble.
at 09:03 6 Jun 2017

Got a friend with type 1 diabetes. He's also a terrible diabetic as he is nowhere as near as careful about it as he should be, which has lead to me calling probably close to 10 ambulances for him when he has had a hypo whilst we lived together.

I've not lived with him for a few years now and I know he's had a few close shaves where he has very luckily had a hypo whilst others are around. One time he randomly woke up in hospital after some members of the public worked out what was going on.

Anyway, we've got a group chat in our friend group and he basically always posts in the morning as he's up first. He's not been on his phone since 2pm yesterday but I know he got home as his computer signed in to Steam. My worry is that he's got home about to crash, then had a hypo at home and is now alone where no one is likely to find him. He doesn't really have anyone outside our friend group in Birmingham and his family are in Oxford.

I'm unsure as to what to do now. It's only been 12ish hours but I fear something bad has happened and genuinely don't know who I'm supposed to call.

Any help would be appreciated.
