A while ago I mentioned a problem where some electronics were ticking. At first I thought it was the computer PSU but lights started doing it, my sewing machine, microwave, etc.
Two nights ago the lights started flickering like a 1940s horror movie. We killed the electricity at the board. Stuff improved at night. The following day in the afternoon they failed again like a rave. At this point all major electrical bits were unplugged so it was just the lights.
In other news I have booked an Irish Tutor! It's great I can say stuff like: Ólann an Moncaí uisce. But I'd like to be able to hold a conversation outside of Dublin Zoo.
I even managed to ask my husband for Lemsip in Irish last night :) he didnt know what I was going on about but could work it out from cupán lemsip.
Doctor requested a covid test for me.
In Ireland the appointments go through as SMS.
1. When I got the SMS after keeping my phone on the outside window sill I had 20 mins to do a 40 min drive
2. I requested a reschedule, and haven't heard anything because I d o n t h a v e s i g n a l .
There is no other way to get the test confirmed. All handled through SMS, no phone line, no email.
Meanwhile my symptoms have got worse over night.
It will come as no surprise that Brother tech support didn't read the ticket I sent them where I detailed all troubleshooting, version numbers, and documents used.
So I gave up on them.
Turns out it is a document issue. Not specific document but the document you send for printing.
I have my dot matrix back in my parents attic and I will use it.
After three days of trying to get my duplex printer to print duplex, after getting a new printer after deducting it was the old printer (in fairness Old Printer kept crashing and resetting itself) it turns out that Windows 10 broke duplex printing?!?!
And of COURSE all I can find online is that fact, and not where or how I might find a fix.
Considering how much I need to print I am REFUSING to do manual duplex.
