I managed a few days. I coped by a steady supply of midget gems, but my fuse was pretty short. It took a single comment to get me properly angry.

I am beyond pissed off that I don’t get to go to bloodstock this year or Paris with my partner because my dickwad of an old roommate didn’t pay the council tax when we were living with her so now have repossession agents knocking asking for goods of £700 worth despite us giving her more than our half, after weeks of trying to track her down (she’s completely disapeared) we have now had to use my entire pay check to pay it off :@ see y’all next year folks!

^ Oh dear. Reminds me of when I was a student and, by chance, ended up being responsible for paying the electricity bill (I was the only one in the house when the man came to connect it up). At the end of the year some of the other students buggered off without paying me their share of the bill. They were postgrads as well and I was only a first year.

Two of my old housemates never paid me for two installments of the TV license I got for the house - that's £15 each. One of them I never want to see ever again so one could argue it's £15 well spent.

Banned by Facebook, who don't believe my name is what it is. Even after I'd sent them a scan of my driving licence. And there is no way to talk to anyone about it :-(

I don't remember, but it must have come out of what savings I had at the time (not a great amount). It just shows that educated people are not necessarily conscientious :|

Trying to upload a pic for my profile on here and says it has to be under 48kb, editing and looking at a few pics- can't seem to get anything less than 650kb does technology even go that low anymore?!

Make sure your image is only 100x100 pixels, and export it as a JPEG. Lower the JPEG quality as needed (you can normally get to ~80% without any serious loss of image quality).

Why are metal type people always so smart! I have absolutely no idea how to do any of that :lol: how do I do that on an Android phone rather than a computer? X

Dunno if there's any easy way of doing this on android, but if you don't have access to a PC (or do, but don't want to install a graphical manipulation software like GIMP), then I had some success with https://www.photopea.com/

It's not a newbie-friendly tool though, so if you don't have any experience with graphics manipulation software and terms like cropping and scaling, you might struggle to use it.
