    Ive struggled to watch more than 1 ep of the last series, it just was so bad, and the female character that annoying that i tuned out, never happened before

    I would usually be up at sparrows to download the latest ep on a sunday morning, but ive been sleeping in this year...

    Just when i hoped they would fix the situation they go and make it much much worse....

    The Dr was a man, is a man, end of....

    Id be fine if they also brought back Karen Gillan, she was the best female companion character....apart from her all the female characters since have been personality challenged and annoying

    No, its a rot thats set in where people want to drive an agenda and "shake things up"

    And im about jack of it

    Its creeping into everything

    It went well for Ghostbusters...not

    And before i get hammered, ill tell you the best ever boss i had was a lady, she got there by merit, not as part of an agenda, or equal opportunity program. Anyone remember merit? She was awesome and was no shrinking violet, happy to kick ass to get things done just like me, hence why we got along so well. That was 20 years ago, merit existed then.

    Tired of agendas and the crap that they corrupt to further them, not even TV is safe now...

    /me signs off the topic, too pissed for any more words.

    Eh just a sad but pretty story that I heard about telling the bees and loyalty by insects and some animals - the telling of the bees thing I found particularly pretty somehow

    oh and that for all the money they spent on the hadron collider we dont actually know what would happen if you put your hand in it - all things are just speculation...

    More fricking rot...the couple who want peanuts banned on Qantas flights because their kid had a reaction to peanuts on a flight

    Hang on, the rest of society will now commence removing all peanuts from the earth, and while we're at it, we'll also bubblewrap everything so your precious doesnt hurt himself on something pointy

    Of course, none of this would be needed if you know, behaved like a fricking parent..

    But no, lets punish everyone because you cant do your job...you chose to have a child, youre responsible for it, not the rest of society...

    Makes you wonder how mankind got this far dont it?

    It was 8% when shut down and took the battery out.
    Out of curiosity threw a multimeter on there after removing the board and they're sitting at 11.7V.
    So 3.9V per cell seems pretty charged to me, yet the computer was sure they're flat.

    Code:
    This was some info I got at the time
        energy:              19.832 Wh      <-- 19 Wh is 8% of bad 'energy-full' value.
        energy-empty:        0 Wh
        energy-full:         245.642 Wh     <-- ??? 
        energy-full-design:  0 Wh           <-- Should be 58
        energy-rate:         30.663 W
        voltage:             166.65 V       <-- ???
        time to full:        7.7 hours      
        percentage:          8%
    I'm thinking either they were overcharged or never actually flat. I'll put some load on them tomorrow and see what happens.
