🇬🇧Former A&E Nurse- currently adjusting (well, trying to…) life outside of emergency and chaos. Wait, this is what the outside looks like?!

A bit sweary. Interests in healthcare (obvs), tech, gaming and climate change. I have a dark sense of humour and don’t take myself too seriously.

I love engaging with all people- every last wonderfully unique one of you :heart_rainbow: (except nazis, you can piss off)

Boston Dynamics’ new Atlas robot is really cool with a side of “Ah hell naw!”.

It’s stream day! :blob_cat_dance:

I’ll be continuing my “Can You Beat Crash Bandicoot Without Breaking Boxes?” challenge. Only got to level 3 last time out. Let’s see if we can get any further!

Streaming on Twitch at 8pm (UTC +1)!

@EighthLayer This’ll be interesting, last time I watched you were at a gate that seemed to only open if you broke the box- did you manage to bypass that out of curiosity?

@EighthLayer Oh, I just saw the date on this post. Yesterday was one of those days where I lost all track of time and day. 😭

#GoodMorning!

My wife and I woke up to the great news that our son got into the school we wanted. It was the only one we applied to considering it’s on our doorstep and we can see from our house!

It’s a primary/middle/secondary combined school so we’ll never have to worry about applying to another school again!

We’re very happy! 😁

I’ve started testing out alternatives to as they’re putting their prices up yet again! £20pm for Family plan now. 🙄

I’ve started with as I had a 2-month free trial, but the Windows app is trash. It keeps telling me playback has stopped on another device. It wasn’t playing on another device in the first place. Also songs just randomly stops playing or starts from the beginning again. 🤦‍♂️

Might try and next.

Anyone got any recommendations?

harrybo93,
@harrybo93@mstdn.games avatar

@EighthLayer Can vouch for Tidal too, but Qobuz is also worth a look

Costco is one of the best places to buy cheap gender neutral clothing. And by that I mean, clothing labeled for ‘men’ that fit me perfectly and make me feel better in my own skin.

I’ll take it.

EighthLayer, to cars
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

I do wonder what these electric car manufacturers think of sometimes. They give the cars random noises that I don’t associate with a car at all.

Just now there was one waiting to reverse out of a space as I was walking across the car park, but it sounded like a strange alarm so I was looking anywhere but the car. It wasn’t until I’d walked across and I saw it started reversing that it was the car making that noise.

harrybo93,
@harrybo93@mstdn.games avatar

@EighthLayer @thegamerstavern Damn straight- I know people would think it is a bit counterintuitive or something but actual engine noises should be played at low speed I think. At least for a few generations, people have a hard wired instinct to immediately turn their attention to any loud revving noise.

@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

One of the worst things since lockdown happened is that couriers now think it’s acceptable to leave packages on a doorstep and consider that “delivered”.

I say “a doorstep” as my wife just had a notification to say a package has been delivered. It’s nowhere to be seen.

Unless you’ve handed it to me directly as I’ve opened the door, I do not consider it delivered!

Edit: I don’t blame the drivers themselves. It’s the companies who dictate how drivers are supposed to perform their duties.

harrybo93,
@harrybo93@mstdn.games avatar

@EighthLayer Exactly this- having an argument with a courier I use about this currently. They can’t seem to grasp it

I fucking hate being on call for work. My whole evening just ruined. Now it’s too late and I’m too tired to really do anything, but I’m not mentally ready to go to bed. FFS. 😡

@EighthLayer Man that fucking sucks :/

@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

I just spent over an hour on the toilet just before going to bed.

Sat down just before 1am and got up again little after 2am. I must have blacked out or something because it only felt like a few minutes.

I just heard my favorite excuse for not wearing a mask inside a hospital:

“Masks make me wheeze. If I wheeze, I can’t exercise. If I can’t exercise for 2 days I get nauseous. So I can’t wear masks.”

Erm. K.

Hey! Just popping my head up again to say that if you missed me doing my rally streams or want a new one to follow, I’ve slowly started getting back into it again- with EA WRC. You can find me over at The Gamer’s Tavern Peertube instance ☺️

Here’s the VOD- which actually turned out to be more like a video I wanted to record anyway rather than a stream!

Every time I take the case off my #iPhone to clean it, I’m reminded of how premium the device feels.

Then I’m reminded that the iPhone 13 Pro is an absolute fingerprint magnet. 😂

@EighthLayer I feel exactly the same lol! I take the case off regularly just to make sure there’s not grit or anything trapped in between

EighthLayer, to fediverse
@EighthLayer@mstdn.games avatar

My Threads account has pretty laid dormant since I created it, but I think I’ve found a use for it. To help explain what the Fediverse is to users on Threads that don’t understand it.

I’m interested to see how everyone here would go about explaining what the Fediverse is?

#Fediverse #Threads

harrybo93,
@harrybo93@mstdn.games avatar

@EighthLayer Yeahhh but isn’t meta blocking stuff that mentions fediverse things? Well, they’re blocking stuff that mentions Pixelfed anyway…

@EighthLayer Absolutely!

My use case would be for note taking, no drawing or apps or anything. Simply keeping track of notes.

I love being scheduled for my MRI scans in the middle of the night. Love it. Love. It.

/s

Tonight I go for a routine MRI to monitor whether or not I’m developing full blown MS.

Having to put my head in loud machine for an hour? 😬 I hate everything about it. Bleh.

harrybo93,
@harrybo93@mstdn.games avatar

@britt If it helps, I have light relief in the form of a story about a patient who’s fart in the MRI scanner was so bad they had to close the scanner for a day and decontaminate it before use again. Probably doesn’t help I know.

You got this 🥰

Little voice at the back of my head is telling me I want to get VR for my sim racing/rallying. But can’t justify the cost without having even tried it 😫

It’s overrated, right? VR racing is overrated yes?
