The good old black gunk that appears after blowing or excavating the nose after a few journeys on London Underground.

Caused by various types of dust apparently.
Strangely, by all accounts, after a while regular commuters on the underground no longer notice it.
The body must adapt and all the toxic shit just gets absorbed.

Using the Bakerloo or Northern line is akin to descending into the pit of Hades.

Grey pubes. I can ignore my wrinkles, receding hairline and salt and pepper stubble. But looking down when I pee is unavoidable. Thanks mother nature. Oh, and I'm not shaving down there, I don't want to look like a 12 year old kid.

And the Link cashpoint machine UI. I want cash. Just cash. As per the button I pushed marked "cash only" not the one with "cash and receipt" not the one with "cash and balance on screen" so don't keep asking me if I want a receipt and to see my balance after I've selected "cash". Go look at a Lloyds cashpoint and go back and do it properly.

The electrician fitted a new thermostat for me and itís a new modern energy saving piece of shit.

Apparently new thermostats have to work with temp as their governing main rule, as opposed to time as itís apparently more efficient. Well thatís fucking bollocks and I HATE our thermostat.

This is how it works. You choose a program (P1-P6) and a time, much like a normal thermostat. Then you also set a temp, which so far seems fairly ok. So letís say I choose p1, 07:00, 21 degrees. I canít say for how long here, it just aims for 21 and then maintains that unless otherwise told.

So P2 acts like the off. You do this by picking another time, say 07:30, and choosing a new temp, say 18 degrees. You can choose a really low temp, so itís very off, or a temp like 18 so it treats it like a base and keeps temp at 18 or above.

So far it all seems fairly acceptable, the really, really, really wanky problem though is that you canít press a button to have an hourís heat. You have to dial in a higher temp on the thermostat as an override that the heating now has to hit.

The problem with this is unless you turn it back down it wonít do anything until a program within the thermostat tells it otherwise.

So what happens is, and this is very inefficient, you get cold at night and you turn it up, then you fall asleep, then 4 hours later the temp wakes you up because youíre as hot as the sun and you have to turn it down to a lower temp.

This sometimes involves getting up and searching out the thermostat. Itís almost always involves sweat, frustration and disrupted sleep. If you decide to do nothing itíll remain battering you with heat until the P2 18 degree target kicks in.

In about the last 2 weeks, weíve had problems with this on a number of nights.

And thatís not the only issue caused by this. Go out and forget youíve turned it up a degree or two just before you left and you come home to a hot house where your heating has been trying to maintain a hot temp for the last 6 hours with no one in.

Why canít it just give me an hours heat on demand?

All this efficiency is going to put my energy usage up loads and itís pissing me right off. I am about to find a simpler solution to this stupid piece of shit.

that does sound shit.

we have a very basic 'cosy' system (a bit like nest).

time bands and 2 temperatures, and use app/thermostat button to turn it on to one of the two temps for hour increments outside the programmed on times.

didn't think programming just 2  temps would work, but it's fine.

Not heard of cosy, just looked and seems decent. I was leaning away from a smart thermostat, but after this shit, I might give cosy or Tado a shot.

It's all I wanted, just a dial and a button where I can add extra hours.

I don't think cosy are anywhere near hive/nest . we only use it because it was a free sweetener to sign up to the energy company.

does the job, don't get me wrong

Our thermostat is like that Barry. Ours is above a radiator though, which is definitely not annoying.

Mine is like that so I just set it to manual mode, 21C, 24 hours a day. Coupled with this I manuallay adjusted the controls on each radiator to make upstairs a bit colder than downstairs. Works fine.
