Lost me phone......

 Well its not the first time and perhaps not the last but when you have a couple of years worth of pics n vids etc etc of the kids growing up and camping it farking makes it a shitload worse!!

 

The biggest piss off about this whole drama was a few days before i had it plugged into the laptop with a hard drive ready to back up and then back back up all the pics...

 

Stupid Laptop couldnt find the photo file and i lost paitence so didnt persist and a week later the C&%T of a thing is a goner!!

 

Yes i've tried to ring it, being flat was kinda how the drama unfolded....

 

Well if it wasn't for the fucking missus getting a 4 hour haircut then maybe I wouldnt have enjoyed as many Sparkiling Ales....

Know the feeling well

Took a tumble off a jetty a few months back while tying up the rescue boat, managed to save both pairs of glasses but lost the phone.

Dug out the old telstra tough from the drawer and managed to get some numbers in to it.

Brought a new one off ebay, set it up and then dropped it and cracked the screen badly, got serial and model numbers and ordered a new screen, bugger me dead, found out replacement screen doesn't fit only after old screen was removed and cannot put it back in, so back to the old reliable jobby again.

Missus has just renewed her plan and got a new one so its put all the numbers in to her old one and see how long this one will last

Just keep blaming the missus

Thu, 2018-12-06 18:08

Just keep blaming the missus for taking to long as she should know not to leave you alone for long periods of time while your out and about. You will soon start to believe it and then you’ll start feeling better.

 Pirate - You give love.... A

Thu, 2018-12-06 20:53

 Pirate - You give love.... A bad name

 

Pirate the tickets were a gift, the missus bought them for me/us for my 40th after she saw me look up to see if they were coming to Perth and when they weren't she bought us tickets in Adelaide...

 

I wouldnt have gone to such effort but pats on the back to her...

 

However.... After 4 hours of catching up with a mate while she got her hair cut at my Uncles fancy salon in Adelaide i'd had a skin full....

 

Anyway not long into the concert i went to the dunny and had to leave the seating area where the $300/$600 tickets were, well i thought i had to leave the area but apparently there were dunnys in that area too which makes sense but where the trouble started was when i tried to get back in and by that stage my phone had gone flat which had the QR code thingo on it...

 

So I could no longer access the area, I couldnt get in touch with her to let her know what was going on and the security geezers dont care to much about sob stories....

 

Anyway at some point after that i lost me phone....

 

Was she pissed off? OH YEAH

That's a classic Boon. Those

Fri, 2018-12-07 12:04

That's a classic Boon. Those bloody Coopers Sparkling Ales eh.

When Metallica came in 2010 the Mrs (who loves them as much as I do) and I had pre-drinks with a huge crew at Paddys and with me driving and it being her first real night out after our first born and her being Scottish and all she dutifully got stuck in. 
 
Halfway to the Burswood Dome we heard The Ecstasy of Gold and started running at which point the Mrs realised she’d dropped her ticket somewhere in Paddy’s after I gave it to her. I very, very reluctantly turned to follow her back but she told me to keep going which I didn’t even pretend to argue about and. 2 songs from the new album in and I get a text saying she can’t find the ticket and that she’ll meet me at the car afterwards as it was a sell out and we couldn’t buy another ticket which really bummed out my enjoyment until I heard the into to Bells at which point she was forgotten. Towards the end of Fuel I got another text saying she’d made it in which followed Metallica playing Blackened which sent me into cloud 9!
 
Story goes she laid on the car bonnet crying at which point two dodgy cockneys tried to sell her a ticket and she decided that a) she’s in a dodgy carpark full of dodgy kents and b) she may as well try and get in. She walked up to the entrance and there was a guy walking in in a suit so she put her hand in the air and started saying excuse me sir and made it past the Indian ticket checkers and literally just walked into the place without them saying a word or security stopping her. Legendary stuff from the wee lassie.

A reminder phone found at Seabird

Fri, 2018-12-07 11:24

Yeah, just another reminder that I found a working mobile on the beach South of Seabird, Saturday 1/12/18 (looks like they had recently camped overnight).

Given the app notifications that are showing on the screen, I would suggest it was owned by a <30year old male.

Will hold as found for another couple of weeks as I hope to return to owner.

Fri, 2018-12-07 22:35

Saw RATM in 08. It was everything I hoped for and so, so, so much more but nothing will beat Metallica in 2013 at Soundwave.

Tool is the last of the big bands on my bucketlist and I'm seeing the Prodigy and Sevendust again next year which I am absolutely hanging out for.

Sat, 2018-12-08 06:59

Metallica at soundwave were next level. Nearly ruined live music for me it was so note perfect. 

Slayer and Anthrax spoilt on a younger generation that didn’t understand the significance of their contribution to the genre.

Ride the Lightning live 

I remember it being a mild and completely still night so the sound came out perfect and Metallica were the tightest I've heard them with a setlist for the ages.

Seeing videos of RATM concerts where the whole crowd ( 100,000+) were all bouncing in unison during some of those classics like Bull on Parade were all time....

They started playing Testify

Sat, 2018-12-08 07:22

They started playing Testify and the sound completely cut out halfway through and they played it out in silence to a disappointed crowd. They got the sound back and Zack says "we'll try that again" and they drop straight into Bulls on Parade and the crowd went nutsa.

 MY PHOTOS WERE BACKED

Mon, 2018-12-10 12:14

 MY PHOTOS WERE BACKED UP!!!!!!!!!!

 

Yay i am so happy right now.....

 

For all you dads out there that have a phone full of kids pics dont leave it too long until you ensure they are backed up, i'm usually pretty good at manually backing up to hard drives etc but this time technology saved me and they are in my google account!!
