Recently, someone with the GitHub username eliecerthoms reported an incredibly unfortunate issue with VS Code.
It actually stems from his complete misunderstanding of git.
A classic case of RTFM
I use a MacBook Air as my primary machine.
When at home in my office, I plug it in to a 27″ Thunderbolt display, and use the Apple keyboard and “magic” mouse – which are connected via bluetooth.
To save battery, when not plugged in, I turn off bluetooth.
When I come back to the office, it’s usually still off, and I have to remember to turn it back on, to use the external keyboard and mouse.
I was looking for a way of automatically turning it on when the OS detects it’s connected to an external display, but couldn’t find anything obvious. Until I stumbled across ControlPane
That should be it!
Now, every time I plug my MacBook into the Thunderbolt display, Bluetooth turns on automatically!
Today, I purchased tickets for the Farnborough Air Show 2014, at a cost of £48 each.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, there was a £0.50p charge to print my tickets at home!
The charge was the same for collecting from the Box Office.
For convenience, I printed the tickets at home, but feel this charge is totally unjustified.
I recently signed up to British Gas energy smart tariff for gas and electricity, which comes with a handy meter that tells me how much electricity I’m using.
Once I’d plugged the unit in, i noticed the screen looked a little bit strange… almost, like it was flickering.
I could only detect this if i moved my eyes left or right, up or down… It was almost like the 3 colours (Red Green, and Blue) that make up the screen were refreshing somewhat slowly…
Kind of a pointless post, but I thought I’d share it anyway….
Just thought I’d share some of these amazing Etch A Sketch artworks…
Some people truly are talented. And have far too much time on their hands….
