Random Chat
For all of us devotees of Opera's Random Chat thread...Pop and and share with the group!

First let me say many thanks to Frenzie for providing us with this space to continue meeting and chatting with all of the old friends from Opera, and maybe make some new ones.

I get the feeling we're going gain a whole new appreciation for the Hebrews of old wandering the desert...hehehe...

That cat must `ve liked your house that much.  :P
I think it liked my cats food bowl better.  :P


There was a program (on the BBC maybe?) about cats where one cat would just go sleep with some neighbor guy every day.
There's been a few of them on different channels, but I think the BBC did one which was a study of cats living in a certain area, (where did they disappear to in their adventures from home etc). I know my wife has watched them all.
The start and end to every story is the same. But what comes in between you have yourself to blame.

Yes, that sounds like the one I mean. It was popular scientific about cats in a neighborhood (tracking all of their movements).

There was one cat (don't know if it was that actual program) that kept bringing things home, kids toys, pets toys, socks and ladies underwear. A true cat burglar if ever there was one.  :D

The owner used to go to neighbours doors asking if the items were theirs. No one was willing to claim the ladies underwear.  :lol:

The battery on my Tablet was dying. It goes from 90% at bedtime to 50% the next morning, with no application running in the background. If I use my Tablet for 10 min the battery goes from something like 70% to 20%. Yesterday after work, the battery went from 80% to 0%, completely drained even though I didn't use it. I decided to charge it one LAST time before I go shopping around and see if the battery for my Tablet is sold separately. The next morning, instead of going from 90% to 50% or less as usual, the battery remained at 90%. I've been using it for almost an hour and it has only dropped to 83%. Unusual, as if the battery fixed itself. Any ideas? :confused:

Not the faintest idea I'm afraid.
A calibration glitch maybe (I'm guessing here) and it going to 0% then getting a full charge sorted it out.

That could be it. Also, my Tablet turned off by itself when the battery was at 0% , and I turned it back on after it was fully charged.  Turning it off and turn it back on may have solved the glitch as well. I'm just really glad my Tablet is back to normal. :) it is almost unusable if the battery goes down to 20% each time after 10 min of using it.

Yeah I can see how that would be a problem. Would it be worth buying a power bank for the times it does that?

If it's Android, did you check settings → battery usage (or whatever it's called)?

Got one for my wife a couple of years ago for her mobile phone. Best thing ever apparently.  ;)

Yes. I also have a Battery Monitor on my Tablet that estimates how long the battery lasts before it goes to 0% and what applications are running that consumes the battery. So far the battery is back to  normal, no more glitch :D

Thin walls or very loud snorer?    :o

The walls are supposed to be soundproof, so you can't really hear anything unless somebody yells out loud. So he must be a very loud scorer :whistle:

Or a giant, they snore loudly I believe.  :P

You were trying to sit by the river but there were too many mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes aren't really a problem here, but we do have an annoying thing called midges. They swarm all over you and usually force you indoors as they are a damned nuisance. Spoiled many a days fishing when I was younger.

Quote from: Wikipedia
(also known colloquially in Scotland as "Wee Bastards")

Best description of them ever.  :D

I'm not sure if I have ever seen any midges here in Minnesota. I decided to read a couple articles about midges and I was surprised by the large number those midges exist in Scotland. I hope midges in your area doesn't cause serious illness?

No danger of serious illness from them. They do bite though and that can make you itchy I suppose, which can be annoying and irritating perhaps, but not serious.  :P
