Darlington hospital discharge lounge

Hardly an eclectic selection of reading matter in the discharge lounge.

Hi Conrad,

If you get an opportunity before you leave, I wouldn't mind knowing the story behind Michelle's "shock weight loss". I'll re-post it on some of the other blogs (I'm sure that would be most welcome).

Seriously, good to see that things seem to be going in a favourable direction...

Dave - whilst I acknowledge that is a matter of great importance I have tto investigate " Steph blasts Jez", and to give that the in depth attention it deserves my remaining time here will be taken up. Sorry to disappoint.

Sir Hugh said...

just had a little stroll. Saw a door marked "Movement DIsorder Office." The office appeared to be empty.

Catherine Bell said...

I hope you are recuperating, pain free, with a nice bottle of wine Conrad.

Hoping Gimmer rescued you and that you'll be able to recommence your journey before too long.
All best wishes
Sue and Martin

Oh my goodness, Sir Hugh! I've missed the past two weeks due to end-of-the-semester overtime work. I've just gone back through the your past posts and hope you feeling much better at this point. I shall drink an ale in your honour tonight and toast your return to full health soon!

All - I normally reply to all comments individually, but typing with one finger on the wrong hand on the iPad is discouraging. But a heartfelt thanks to all, without comments blogging would be pointless. Note I am still iPadding. Before I departed my Mac desktop had to go to have some evil malware removed. I have been asking daughter to chase the guy up whilst I was off. His latest reply on the day of my return was "it's on the bench," which echos with "we've got some coming in," our driver's been off poorly," " pour branch in Puddletown may have one," etc. And now we have a bank holiday which is welcome to many but just a nuisance to we retirees.

Even though it's a Mac try Malwarebytes - the paid version. It occasionally gives false positives and picks up things like PUPS (potentially unwanted programmes) as well as blocking malicious websites. The paid version actively monitors when you're online and of course there is a full scan facility. Quarantine and removing of male wars is easy. I'm fairly sure there is a Mac version.

Not male wars - malware!

Sir Hugh said...

Afoot - thanks for that but it is in the hands of my computer man now. I have Sophos on the Mac and Bull Guard on the partioned Parallells PC. I'm not sure what you call my Problem. I think it is Scarewear. A screen stopping you doing anything else with a male voice telling you to use the telephone number on thhe screen. Despite closing down, re-starting, attempting Force Quit etc I just couldn't shift it. It came back every time.

afootinthehills said...

Worrying Conrad since there are different types of scareware I believe - though I'm no expert. Shame your security software didn't pick it up. Good luck with getting it fixed.

Alan Sloman said...

Good God.

I have been catching up with your hospital exploits Conrad. How you remained so sanguine about it all I will never know!

It sounds like the outcome may eventually be positive, Sir.
All the very best to you,
Alan

Sir Hugh said...

Alan S - good to hear from you. Any sanguinity on my part I reckon is born from my naïveté at comprehension of the reality.
