As Susan Ivanova might say, "no bah today, bah tomorrow. There's always a bah tomorrow."

BAH!!! 8 weeks of hot weather...go to a festival, and down comes the rain. And being up a mountain, in Wales, it was really bloody wet. Unfortunately, the kids didn't want to stay beyond the 2nd band as they were absolutely soaked through, so we had to head off and give it a miss. Had a nice weekend in Wales regardless though.

They listened to us, accepted our findings, the admin has held his hand up (when faced with the comment that we can see the login name of the admin) and they've begun working on repairing the damage.

No BAH!!!

Yoincks!! Tomorrow (today!!) is last day of my work week, then off until next Tuesday. Bringing the family to a lovely rock festival up a mountain in Wales, all paid for by work.

Bah! One of our customers logs a support ticket with us this evening which is a massive issue for them, and is going to take up all day tomorrow to explain why it happened and how to recover from it.

Yoincks!! The 'why it happened' is because one their admins deleted some stuff and triggered a chain of events that is easily explainable using the server logs.

Bah!! They're going to play the "nah, that didn't happen....the software must have a bug" game.

Yoincks!! Great...they are going to burn throught their support time to end up with me saying....."Nah, feck off with that...I've been supporting this software for years and know it inside out....you fucked up, admit it. We can see the actions in the logs. Let's help you recover from the issue and you move on with a lesson learned"

Bah!!! Them....with fingers in ears....."blah blah blah can't hear you. not interested"

I'm going to get our technical directory to handle this one tomorrow.

Isn't this so much fun, though?  I'm having these conversations everywhere, with my kids, colleagues, friends, weirdies on the internet, all puzzling through the most inconsequential of comicky things....

I've just finished a 2-day onsite consultancy up in London. After our customary "good morning, please to meet you" yesterday morning, the first question that was asked of me wasn't anything to do with what I was there for but was "So...have you seen Infinity War yet?"  :lol:

I enjoyed that very much. Probably the best part for me was the post-credits scene, not for its content but because I've never heard a cinema audience actually gasp before!

Great stuff.

I've never heard a cinema audience so quiet while I giggled myself silly at that  :lol:

Went with my wife and 2 kids
(2 girls, near 8 year old who loves Star Lord and had prepared herself for some deaths already and a 9 year old who idolises Gamora and wasn't prepared at all) at the weekend and for the first time in ages I went in spoiler free and I bloody loved it.

Had a grin on my face pretty much all the way through, and when the credits went up I asked the others "Did you enjoy that?"....wrong question to ask as all 3 just went (paraphrasing) "NO!!!! How could you enjoy that???!!"

Just listening to my girls discussing how things are going to sort themselves out, without them having any comic influence and just going on what they have seen in the films, is an absolute joy....they have picked up so much with these movies, and my eldest has come up with a cracking Ant-Man and the Wasp + Captain Marvel theory.

IW is, right now, exactly what the 8 year old me imagined was possible when I got a stack of 'old' Marvel comics back in 1982. Just absolutely loved it, and I cannot wait to see it again.

It’s remarkable. I have no idea what kids will make of it…

My girls (almost 8, and 9) got it - they've experienced the loss of their 2 maternal great-grandparents in the last couple of years, and they realised what it was all about around that 20 minute from the end mark. As for my wife....she was in bits for ages after it ended.

The film is gorgeous indeed - the scene where Miguel plays the guitar in the town towards the start of the film had me flummoxed because it looked so real. The animation in this just went to a whole other level.

That honour surely goes to Derek.

Well, I for one can no longer listen to wind chimes any more...
