Today, still a bit iffy from the jab. ITS BEEN A WEEK DAMN IT!
Working on things as usual, soldering stuff, making joysticks (Converted a USB on to work on Neogeo, looking at making one for the Switch because every controller ive seen for it has a censored D-pad)

I was rotten for about a week too Prin, the initial 3 days felt like the Flu from Hell.

Not much to report for today itself, since last update had pretty much perpetual ebay hell including one person who said nothing for a month and then filed a fraudulent purchase claim on his bank card and then multiple cases of ebay duplicating old tickets not just ruining my day but that of the poor barstewards who wanted to buy the items.

Been working on and off on Watch stuff too as part of the hobby effort the Pain Therapist told me to try, finally got the paint right on one thing only the put a rag on it and ruin it while cleaning the brushes so I had to start over but the aged strap seems to have gone well along with developing a really pleasent Leather scent and becoming incredibly supple.

Thanks to you guys for being the world's guinea pigs and turning up all the nasty side effects. :D

Mind you, despite all that forewarning the government here still ordered too much AstraZeneca and not enough Pfizer so I'm probably getting the former. Ah well, it's still only a one in 300,000 chance of something really nasty happening and those are considerably better odds than actually getting Covid.

Tbh it seems to happen more in those that are just more susceptable to stuff like flu etc but not always, the Old Man has a Lung issue yet just had tiredness for 3 days with the typical swelling to the shoulder joint and my Mum who has a list of issues that could reach the moon and back barely got more than tiredness either, it is supposedly worse in round 2 so I may have the Dog start digging a hole ready for the end of May when mine happens.

Who knows, just been whats said of those experiancing side effects, could be possible her body had built up a decent immunity so round 2 was a walk in the park to her anti bodies.
I won't know until the end of May how I do for round 2 but I will make sure means to aid it are there just in case as it needs doing regardless.

Today I woke up, felt rough as normal,in the early hours I found none of my Jackets fit to deal with the rough weather nor did the belt I'm supposed to wear with my suit for this wedding so more expense on top of the getting ripped off on ebay, Jackets will have to wait but ordered a nice real leather Job beltwise to match the shoes and watch band.
Now to find a Barber that does the works so I look less haggard.

TODAY well yesterday
Sorted a "New" laptop for a friend of my mum the other week all is fine with it, nowt special.
It has all the Windows login stuff on a sticky label on the top of the screen
Call from mum
Apparently he had a problem with it not logging in.
Cycle round to have a look, its not going online.
Press one button and its back on.
The problem im having is him wanting to give me money for such a simple thing. I might be in work right now but im not exactly struggling.
I didnt take the money for sorting such a simple problem and it seemed like I was being rude
He already over paid me for the laptop, (Was £100 gave me £140).
Anyway,
Today (really) getting back into soldering after botching something up months ago and loosing confidence in my skills, was a PAL SNES region mod with 50/60 switch, was way to tricky.
Mostly working on making arcade sticks for things. Made a Neo geo one. Going to work on another when im more in the mood, also a Switch arcade stick as bollocks to playing anything arcadey on those rubbish d-pads.
Then a PC Engine one, as bollocks (again) to playing shooting games on that small D-pad

Sister had the first jab the other day, she became really ill to the point where she couldn't walk, her other half had to carry her from the building to the car.
But she has a lot of pains going on (as well as the shoulder thing my other bother and sister get), im thinking its more of a stress thing. Have said that my mum should just take her on holiday when they can go and she can get away from things for a bit.

Im still a bit iffy, why it is always the breathing issue with me? Sodding Asthma when I was a kid.
Hoping the 2nd jab comes sooner rather than later,


LOOK MA! I DID TYPE SOME WORDS!!

I still need to find a solution to my soldering issue, my right hand has been awful the last few days for dropping things and obviously a hot Soldering Irons a real dangerous thing to drop and theres quite a queue for soldering.

I have a flatpack desk to assemble. And a carpet to lay. And plywood to screw down over the Cheap MDF rubbish floor before the vinyl arrives. And the rest. This after 3 weeks of constant painting, papering and whatnot after gutting our house.

I cracked it, the secret of assembling flat-pack - get your brother & sister-in-law to do it for you :x

I still had to clear the room, demolish the old bed and cupboard and lift the packages of the new bed in from the garage though...
