    Asked my younger brother if he can fab up a few bits for work. If the part works out it'd be pretty cool for him to be paid by the company.

    So today we got a passive aggressive note through the door from someone (we are 99% sure it is from the house next door to ours but no name/house number was left on it) accusing us of fly tipping in the back alley of our street. There were some MDF boards in the alley next to our bins which were being collected today so I am guessing this is what they were referencing.

    Amusingly the stuff isn't ours but is from the people in the flat below ours as they have been doing some renovating. As we're renting and wouldn't want any trouble from the council/estate agents (even if it was a misguided accusation) my gf popped round to our downstairs neighbours and asked if they had been given a note too and they hadn't. They explained that they were possibly a bit naive as they had put their stuff out with the bins assuming it would get taken but it hadn't been, and after we talked to them they went and collected it from the alley and put it in their yard.

    So the issue was resolved by calmly going and asking the people involved. It would just be typical that now the stuff has been collected from the alley whoever sent the note is going to think was actually our stuff.

    Honestly why would you:
    A) send a pathetic note instead of just talking to someone, or anonymously contacting the council to complain about it
    B) not even check who you are sending the fucking note to

    I fucking hate the neighbours in the house next to ours as they're a bunch of weird cunts, I am quite convinced the note was from them. I am tempted send a note back (of course with no name or door number on) telling them they sent the note to the wrong people, and will sarcastically ask them to stop doing things which annoy us.

    hey I only got a C in GCSE maths too. My older brother got a D and always wrote C on his CV. He's 35 and hasn't been caught yet

    Edited:

    I suspect I'm just about old enough now that I can probably lie about my GCSE results.

    Depends on what you're lying for really. Most employers probably won't ask unless it's relevant, and I got through uni before I'd even collected my GCSE certificates (they may have asked the exam boards?). Certificates were needed for my postgraduate shit though.

    In my experience employers don't care what GCSE results you got. They are much more interested in your degree, the university you went too and your work experience.

    I have only ever been asked for a copy of my degree certificate, never been asked for my A-Level certificates which is just as well as I have no idea where they are now.

    16GB of RAM costs about 100-150... If you're going for a Mac get one but it's not cheap.

    probably might be able to get away with 8GB, not sure what the max is on the macbook pro, might be 16GB, if you need to be out and about everywhere, just get the macbook pro

    Consider getting an older gen Mac Pro, you can upgrade them to 12 Cores/24 HT and 128GB RAM

    Unless the company you're interviewing at has a specific HR procedure asking for qualification certificates, it will more than likely come down to how you come across in the interview.

    they've decided to change everything again for some reason.

    It goes from level 1 to level 9.
    For an idea of how difficult level 9 is, I think the Maths grade boundary is that the top 2% of students will get level 9.

    there's not really a clear "conversion" from letters to numbers but level 9 is A** and level 5 is C (I think)

    Fair enough if they changed the entire system to reflect that but why only change a few subjects? Seems like more mindless interference in the education system TBH.

    On the subject of school GCSE's here's a shit anecdote of mine, back in my shit tier school I was given a choice between IT, Business Studies and fucking cooking for my GCSE's for the last 2 years, because in what world would you ever need to do all 3 right? Design Technology or Woodwork? haha fuck you we can't get the teachers to do those lessons at GCSE despite having the rooms and equipment.

    I picked IT so naturally I got my arse thrown into Buisness Studies because fuck you cunt.

    So for 1 year I fuck about with minimal effort (something im not proud of) and barely scrape an E in the course work. Then because of how the subject was devised, we took the final test with a year left and because it turns out I did pay attention I got an A and was not actually shit at it. Which at the time meant nothing because my course work would drag the overall grade down to a D.

    For the next year, with a 'pep talk' from my teacher I knuckle down and drag my course work up to A standard at least thats what the teacher told me by the time i'd finished with it. I'd pulled off an A in a subject I fucking hated and never wanted to do, felt pretty damn pleased with myself while waiting for the confirmation but it was all but guarentee'd that's what i'd get.

    Well, turned out that I was sold bullshit, and my coursework was downmarked to an E. So I got a D overall. Thing is, the teacher had fucked up by sending my old man an update telling him I'd recieved an A grade for the Coursework, we had definative proof that something foul had gone on or an accident somewhere. So we took it to tribunal seeing why it'd been assesed and marked down, turned out it hadnt been assed by anyone else just my teacher, the popular theory was that they did not like that i'd seemingly dossed about for 2 years and got away with it so decided to shaft me, i didnt like the teacher but i don't think that's true but thats the story everyone wants to believe.

    Long story short, things got pretty heated and the school were worried my dad would take it to the news, as such my work got reviewed by a 3rd party and given a B which got me a B grade overall.

    Moral of the story? Aint got one, just something that happened to me, still pissed off it's not the A grade but at least it's not D or E. Not that iv'e ever used it anywhere.
