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 :-(

Blimey how much was that, for students I bet the electricity bill was massive! :o
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.

Breaking a bone in my foot when I tripped going up my house stairs last night. Wasn't even drunk :rolleyes:
