Glad you day was better Ghost :D

I'm hoping for a better day today. Yesterday was not a fun day at work. We have a pregnant lady who will be going on maternity leave in the next few weeks. In their wisdom, the company has decided not to get anyone in to provide cover for her job. So all her work is being redistributed. Unfortunately, instead of going mainly to the manager (as the MD had said it would) the department manager has seen fit to give a large chunk of the cases to me and one other colleague :roll:

On top of that I had a day of people asking for the impossible ( in insurance terms anyway - i.e. loads of extra cover under their policies but not wanting to pay anything extra :roll: ) I really hate insurance, but it's paying the bills at present, and there's nothing else around to apply for. The only good thing is the office is a 10/15 minute drive away, not nearly an hour of sitting in traffic like my last place was.

Did I mention that I hate the insurance industry with a passion ;) :lol:

Glad you had a better day Ghost.

Hugs, chilli. Would you like me to do my wax doll and pin trick? I haven't stabbed anyone in ages, don't want to get out of practice. ;)

Arrrggghhh! Stupid Argos!! Last night I got a text message from the Croydon store (London) saying that they had reserved the item I ordered. I tried to contact them, but it was closing time by then, so I sent them an email. I haven't heard anything back from the email and got another text this morning, so I tried ringing them. There are four numbers to choose from, three of which are connected to a filter system which insists you have to have your order/product number. The other number just rings and rings. I did manage to speak to a real person and explained that I needed to speak to someone in the Croydon branch and he put me through directly . . . to the same number I'd been ringing in the first place. :roll:

Sod them! I was only trying to point out that they may have made a mistake with someone's order. :evil:

Me and 3 other students have to make a web page for a university course we're taking. Since I'm the only one who has experience with HTML I'm doing the putting together, the others sent me the texts.
Perfectionist that I can be at times, I replaced all umlauts and ß in the html-files with the correct html notation, which is ä, ö, &szlig and so on.

Just told the editor to search for all ü, ä, ö, Ü, Ä, Ö and ß and replace. Unfortunately I didn't specify that the search should be case sensitive, so now I have to go through all the files again and change &Uuml (Ü) to &uuml (ü) etc, where necessary. Moreover, for some reason I cannot fathom, ß and ss are treated as the same letter, so every instance of ss in the files was replaced, too, so that I have a shedload of szligs to check whether they are ss or ß really. :(
Moreover, the reference to the stylesheet (stylesheet.css) is broken, too. Which is actually how I realized that something went wrong in the first place. :/

Ah, well.

I knew there was a reason I gave up coding :roll: Hope it doesn't take too long to get fixed CB

It's fixed now. Most of it at any rate. I'll tell the others to read over it and tell me if they find any stray umlauts or ßs.
