    Morning.

    A client gave me a deadline of next Wednesday and just called me to chase 'in case I might have done it already'.

    FUCK OFF.

    I cannot get Ashes To Ashes out of my head. Maybe I'm being haunted by Bowie's spirit.

    Move to Paris. It worked for Pete Doherty when Amy Winehouse was haunting him.

    Tell them it'll be done 5 minutes before the deadline like everything else with a deadline.

    Everyone seems to have come back to work with a renewed sense of getting stuff done. Which means they won't leave me alone. Busy.

    Everyone I like in my team is off today and everyone I hate is in. Including someone I really hate back from sick leave.

    UGH.

    I don't think I really hate anyone I work with

    That doesn't mean they don't hate me though :basil:

    I’ve been writing a tender response all morning and when I got to the RATHER DIFFICULT BIT realised I’d written that part almost entirely in a different tender about a month ago, saving me about a whole day off my own schedule. I’m rather smug right now :disco:

    UK border control, post Brexit?

    They must need "no, you can't come in" translated to quite a few languages.

    If only we had a secret section of the forum designed for exactly that sort of thing.

    Nope. Major international sporting body. That’s as much as you’ll get. See- it’s even FUN!

    Except why would I break an NDA for my company to tell someone I’ve never even met on a online forum?!

    Well, I wouldn't think you would, but you seemed very cross about it.

    In any case, I'd have thought that FIFA could just run 'we completely refute these baseless allegations which have been trumped up by the biased media' through Google Translate.

    Cross? I’m not cross...

    Fact- anything you put into Google Translate becomes their property and is harvested by them to do what the fuck they like with. A company was done recently for using an online machine translation engine that stole a WHOLE LOAD of secret shite

    That's sinister. I don't think I've ever read the Google Terms of Service all the way through.

    If you're reading this, Google, please don't tell anyone about that time I tried to buy the indentured servant from the Philippines.

    OOPS! :D

    I use Google Translate if I'm short of song titles - I did an album where all the titles were multiple mistranslations of Lana Del Rey lyrics (apart from one which was direct quote).

    I know it’s my industry, but it amazes me how people never know anything like this in a world of Facebook information harvesting. They’re not just giving you FREE SHIT for no reason.

    Truth. Ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

    Some poor sod somewhere if probably wondering why the lyric to "Love" was translated into 6 different languages consecutively before being turned back into English...

    I updated Mr F's PS4 software ages ago and it wouldn't let me watch Netflix until I'd accepted Sony's T&Cs so I decided to have a quick scroll down them. It was scary, the detail they went into, over hundreds of pages, to tell you how nothing was private and they could do whatever the hell they wanted with any data and there's not a thing you can do about it. Apple and Netflix are the same.

    What game? I was simply saying it’s not like you to be smug darling. Please carry on playing any game you like. Heads up though, I’m a sore loser. :love:
