Re: The First World Problem Thread

The hotel I'm staying at has a 26 digit wifi pass key, mixed case with numbers!!!! After hooking up our laptop, iPads, kindle and camera I'm exhausted.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I've just bought a shiny new 4k camera and now I need a new PC to render the mahoosive, high bit-rate files.

I hadn't thought of that

Rolling out the sunshade seems to be code to the universe for "please send dark clouds and rain".

My hand is so knackered from tennis IC played yesterday that I struggle to open bookings.com for holidays reservations in June.

Have to wait twenty minutes for my glorious 1961 coffee machine boiler to heat / pressure up, so logged onto EF as I've absolutely nothing else to do with my time.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Was in the same place with both Blocher and Mörgeli and crowd didn't throw eggs* at neither. OK, no one batted an eye at their presence, no bodyguards, no special attention. I wonder how Trump would have faired in the same situation.

*Possibly because shops are closed on Sunday in CH.

Just for the sake of correctness - today was a Sunday shopping day in Zurich in many areas ;-).

Saw some newspaper pictures of a Trump rally where an "entrepreneur" was selling eggs and tomatoes at the side of the road

There is only one skinny cola bottle in the little Haribo starmix sweet bag I have just opened

EDIT: I have since moved on to a bag of Bombay mix and I cannot stop..

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The remote for the Amazon Fire TV box works by bluetooth, and yet my wife and kids continue to lift and point it at the box as if it were the 1980s.

I find that ever so slightly annoying
