Seems though, even when other species are doing it, there is still some kind of human involvement.

That being said, we are in a unique position in that we are the species that understands what is happening and can do something about it.
Not having a go BTW, the ones involving humans still outnumber the natural ones by a good distance I would assume.

Been on my laptop all day. Nothing happened, not dropped it ever, perfect nick. Closed it and put it down on the sofa to go do something, come back and open it.....nothing. Can't open it further than an inch. I'm trying not to panic but I could well lose my shit sometime soon. Trying to remember everything on it that isn't backed up. Not many photos so that good but when did I last back up Calibre to an external???????? I may cry.

You can't physically open the lid? Maybe take it to a shop for a simple lid repair?

Looking on the hopeful side here...

I am so sorry to hear this but thank you for putting it on BE because it has prompted me to copy Calibre onto my external memory where I keep all of my photo's.

I spent 20 minutes with one daughter trying to ease it open and nothing, completely stuck. Left it alone, other daughter comes along and opens it. Biatch! No clue what happened but very happy and will now back every fricking thing up.

Everywhere is shut tomorrow so wouldn't have been able to take it in until Saturday and it would be sent off for x weeks and would lose everything on it because they seem to dump the hard drive before cleaning the screen!

Glad to be of service Rosemary.

If you're not doing anything tomorrow would you mind popping over and backing mine up? T is totally usesless tech wise and I'm worse. (There's a reason I stayed married to a geek for so long ) There's lemon & raspberry cheesecake in the fridge.

There were 3 in the fridge but the old boy took one to work and #1 daughter took the small one home so she can take it camping in the morning.

If company's coming though I'll make another and buy a bigger rack of lamb.

The world just tilted a little on its axis due to the number of people now heading south.

I know you weren't, no worries. It's right to include the naturally occurring ones for completion, of course.

Last night on our way home about 9.30pm and we had just ridden into town when our local part time cop followed us down our drive way and stopped outside our garage.

We got off the trike and walked over to see what he wanted and he told us the LED lights we have on our trike are illegal. They are blue and we use them for extra safety. Apparently you can only use white or amber LED lights on motorcycles or trikes in Texas but you can use blue on cars or trucks! The law passed two years ago, we had never heard this before but when I checked online later I found it.

It pissed me off for a couple of reasons. One is we had a state trooper admiring our trike 2 weeks ago when the blue lights were on, and he didn't mention it and two why ban them on some vehicles and not others.

Ok, rant over
