|I have the Lurgy|
at 11:11 29 Mar 2020
Oh well, c'est la vie.
Been feeling a bit different since Friday.
So far, warm cheeks, a few aches, dry cough and feeling a bit stoned although I haven't had a smoke in 2020. Not much of temperature and no headache.
It seems to go away for a few hours making me think I'm over it and then it come backs.
The symptoms are mild so far and if they stay like this then I've dodged a bullet as I have emphysema. My breathing is fine.
I have only gone out twice in the last 2 weeks so I'm wondering when I caught it and how long my incubation period was.
I have 10 cans of soup so that's my go to food at the mo.
Will post tomorrow with an update.

Contagion started at 9.00pm.
It's a heads up for what's happening to the world now.
I've never watched it so my critical eye is seeing if this is close to the truth or just Hollywood.
|Police State? (n/t)|
at 00:18 25 Mar 2020
This is the closest we've got to a Police state in my lifetime.
I always feared the Tories would do something like this.
Yet, they've given police unprecedented powers to arrest and fine people and it's a joke. People are just doing their thing and ignoring the authorities.
The Tories can't seem to do anything properly.

|A different virus.|
at 10:38 19 Mar 2020
I bought a new laptop 2 weeks ago.
I knocked my screwdriver (vodka and orange) over and it flooded the keyboard.
The fault code was related to the BIOS so the PC repair shop said why waste money on a 5 year old PC with no guarantee they could fix it when I could buy a brand new one with an SSD.
I started off with Windows update, getting the latest software and drivers to ensure the PC would operate at max efficiency.
I then loaded my favourite freesoft (Mozilla Firefox, Avast free antivirus etc.).
Then to my games.
GOG has my games in my account and as I have already bought them I get to download them free again.
I missed something because Chrome downloaded too. I didn't ask for it so I uninstalled it.
What I didn't know was that a bit of Malware had downloaded too.
It's called SAntivirus.
This POS created multiple SVCHOST activities and gobbled up all my memory causing my PC to crash every half-hour.
When I discovered it I googled what it was and how to remove it and this is where the sneaky stuff starts.
Some of the solutions on how to remove it were written by the same malware company which led to hiding the malware on the PC. Others suggested downloading freesoft to check and remove all malware but this was more malware.
I found a geek guide which was very comprehensive and involved REGEDIT and intensive surgery on the registry. One of the steps was to disconnect from the internet because this clever bit of malware actually reinstalled itself when I ran the Uninstall wizard by connecting to the Internet and downloading a file that would activate at start-up.
I now have a clean PC but this experience has been frustrating.
Anybody else had similar?

I believe Corrie and EastEnders are filmed 6 weeks in advance.
I wonder if they will do some story lines about the Coronavirus.
I also wonder if they'll stop recording shows for a while because of the virus.
Which leaves TV with having to show repeats and films.
They'll be showing stuff like that anyway to fill in for the sport programmes lost.
With Dave and UKGold having all the repeats already I wonder what we'll get.
|Kids smarter than adults?|
at 10:55 10 Mar 2020
In Wuhan, China where the Coronavirus has meant kids are stuck at home, the authorities have made kids use a homework app called Ding Talk.
Do kids like doing homework? No.
A feature of the App Store is that any app that has a really low rating gets removed from the store so all the kids gave it the lowest rating of 1.
And yes, the app was no longer available for kids to download.

|Star Trek : Picard|
at 23:49 15 Jan 2020
The latest offering in the Star Trek franchise.
I liked Next Gen but was luke warm about Deep Space 9 and Voyager.
I had no time for Enterprise or Discovery.
Most of the films were naff.
However, my 2 fave characters were Jean Luc Picard and 7 of 9 and it appears they are both in the latest offering Star Trek: Picard played by Sir Patrick Stewart and Jeri Ryan.
I won't pay for Amazon Prime but I'm sure I'll get to see it somehow.

That's big of Farage.
Oh wait. The payment is in Euros and cents not Pounds and pence.
I see what you did there Nigel.
There is no way he would pass up trousering 200,000 Euros.
He's yesterdays man as far as the UK is concerned.
From 01.02.2020 he holds no position except "Gob for hire".

1-3 down to Coventry at home.
That undefeated home record seems to be gone now.
