Friday One Hour* Banal

* approx

Does your local train station do stuff like this? Tbf to Cambridge station, they do occasionally raise a smile. But this one is pretty poor

Any other business? You have until just after 5.30pm.

That’s absolutely torturous. I haven’t seen anything like it in Cambridge North but I’ve only been in it four times.

I am currently trying to update my home address at work. I have not yet figured out how.

My local tube station usually has inspirational quotes. Rather deeply terribly puns than those.

:fireworks: Cambridge North :fireworks: isn’t so bad. They’re generally just getting their heads shaved for Macmillan or collecting toys for the Foodbank. Ely is at it though.

Nothing like that at Brighton station, but every other café / pub has that kind of stuff

I have found the form!

It needs to go to my local HR rep. I don’t know who that is and the org chart is extremely unhelpful. At least this is killing Friday afternoon time.

I’ve spent several hours today trying to upload updated figures in response to a referee report but the publishers have changed how things are uploaded and PDFS ARE BROKEN. How do you break a fucking pdf, for fucks sake.

Don’t see that shite here, primarily because Ireland does not have any train stations.

Patent office documents need to be uploaded in a very specific kind of pdf document or things break. For example, if you use the wrong kind of pdf converter, chemical structures can show up as black boxes.

I learned this the very, very hard way.

Whenever I see these in my tube stations I simply don’t read them. I just can’t face that kind of pep, be it morning or evening.

The PDF style hasn’t changed - we’ve uploaded hundreds of figures like this before - it’s their upload system and they’ve got a big :warning: sign on their homepage saying ‘sorry we broke it lol’

I get the bus M9.

Jsut wondering, when abbreviating Tuesday are people opting for:

  • Tue
  • Tues

0 voters

Thinking of switching to 'sday


Yeah, I agree in that respect but think I tend to put Tues anyway. Might do the same for Thurs too.

I’m trying to find the pic of the time I added

- Albert Einstein (or maybe Marilyn Monroe)

to one of those rubbish inspirational quotes

Good lord no

Ordered Eggs Benedict in a posh hotel in Philadelphia on a work trip. It came with a load of fresh fruit on the same plate. I had to make a sacrificial melon breakwater to stop the strawberries getting covered in egg yolk :nauseated_face:

Anyway, that breakfast cost $47
