It's a daily game we play: one player sets a "cryptic clue" and everyone else has four hours to solve it. If you succeed, you get to post the next one. (full rules here: OriginalGriff - Professional Profile[^] )
For example, a recent one of mine was "Outstanding part of lover duet? (7)"
The bit in brackets means "seven letters".
The whole solution is "OVERDUE", which is contained in "lOVER DUEt"
Or perhaps "Queen is unable to enter eighty chains for trading (10)"
is unable CAN'T
eighty chains MILE
MERCANTILE - trading.
The next one is up Monday at 09:00 UK time, and it looks at the moment like I'll be doing it. Give it a go, and see if you can solve it!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

Went over to the shops at lunch and picked up 2 of the Pixel 2 XL phones and phones cases. Got a couple of 15k power banks and lightning to headphone adapters for the kids iPhones.
Now have to see if I can find time over the weekend to move us across to them. Got to catch up with a couple of my customers and get some work done as I haven't been able to get to them during the week due to current contract job.
Last time I install some wonder app from the Play Store on each phone and told the new one to receive and the old one to push to get Contacts, SMS, Photos and other stuff across.
Anyone know if that is still the best way? Also is there a way to get my Contacts in a format easily edited on a computer and put back to the phone? Want to remove a lot but not delete them forever in case I need them in the future and poking around through the phone is a pain in the arse.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
