Failing that, we can do diagnostics :)
I pushed the wrong end of a phone charger lead into a usb socket - I think I've inadvertently porked it. :(

I would hope that would just pop a self-resetting fuse - I'm assuming it just shut down pronto when you did that?

Yes. Now dead as a dodo.

And I take it you've tried switching it on again since?

Make and model please, Arrer? I'll think about it in the morning but now I need my ugly sleep.

Pull the power, pull the battery and leave overnight. Reassemble in the morning.

Morning all.

This is getting a bit like Scarfolk*, isn't it?

*a disturbingly dystopian fictional town that is locked in the 1970s; search for it.

Morning all, keeping on keeping on.

Did what I could for Oblomova's birthday last night, a jumbo crossword collection and a heartwarming tale of a chap who suddenly developed blindness and his guide dog. We ordered in a surprisingly decent Thai dinner (tipped the Deliveroo rider generously for working in current conditions) and presented her with the recently traditional caterpillar cake. Very far from our original plan of eating seafood on a boat in the Nile but she was content enough.

With tonight's blood red moon on the way, I think I would certainly be staying indoors if I wasn't already. Caught an early glimpse this morning and thought that looks pretty big.

Moderators everywhere on red alert.

:D

Hey everyone,

Might get redeployed later this week. Currently doing crash course adult social care training online.

Morning Andy, morning everybody.

Still here, feeling OK but utterly spooked. Had breakfast in the garden, watching the birdies. The bushes have greened since I first went into isolation. I wonder if I will see the leaves on the trees.

Stay safe.
