Indeed, it used to entertain me, now it annoys me. I must be getting old and time to delete it I think

A couple of years back I was getting really cranky about just about everything, to such an extent that Mrs Horlock07 had a quiet word.

Since then I have made a concerted effort to not get wound up about things I can do nothing about and laugh at people being pricks on social media, and I feel 1000x better for it!

I think this is definitely the way to approach social media to be honest. I do like Twitter and find some of the conversations interesting, but there are the usual trolls and people that are just plainly out there for a reaction but I find that ignorance is often bliss!

I deleted all social media at the beginning of this year and I donít miss any of it at all.
The only thing Iíve found is I am sometimes a bit late to the party on football/boxing news but other than that - absolute bliss.

Absolutely, I only use Facebook as I use it to contact old mates as I don't have their mobile number or email, I don't read the Swindon pages on there any more unless its the official page and even then I don't read the comments as it frustrates me hugely.

I only open twitter on matchdays to get the team news, the rest I ignore.

I pity some people who have nothing better to do that wind up people on social media ala Kostiuk etc etc.

My pig might have cancer. Fucking gutted, he's part of the family.

His name is Duncan. After my late uncle, who died of cancer.

I fucking hate cancer.

Iíd say over half the greyhounds Iíve had as pets have succumbed to cancer. Difference being I can prevent their suffering.

Itís the worst feeling ever, but I know itís the thing to do.

Feel for you.

That is very sad news. Pets as such wether fish, foul, mammal or reptile do become part of the family on many levels.
Sympathies to you and yours.

I canít find the individual thread on IPTV so Iíve put this here.

Has anyone who uses an IPTV provider had problems when using in conjunction with a VPN?

Iíve taken out a monthís subscription with worthystreams which until the last week has been OK. However since then it is virtually unwatchable with constant buffering and stopping entirely.

Iíve been using Cyber Ghost as a VPN which Iíve now uninstalled and the IPTV is, atm, back to working perfectly.

My monthís subscription is up in a couple of days so wondering if the VPN caused the trouble before I go ahead and pay for a longer subscription.

it certainly could cause trouble if the VPN isn't fast.

however so could a lot of things, e.g . poor wi-fi reception, device issues, etc

I usually use Surf Shark as a VPN but have been unable to get ITV Hub to work with it so I changed to Cyber Ghost whichwas supposed to be top notch. It seems as if itís really shite or needs tweaking.

Is there a VPN that doesnít cause other problems.

I get the bus after the footy on Fleming way by the fire station, yet we still collect town fans down by Debenhams. Why the fuck would you walk that far when the bus picks up by the magic? Weird.
