    What's on your mind?

    I beat you both by a bit. And I'm still here, still actively kicking Nich's arse and will still be here when the lights go off. I've also been part of / am part of a number of forums outside of here. DIfference is that I don't mention it because it has no bearing on here. We don't have a say in what our playground is built on, and should perhaps just consider ourselves incredibly blessed to still have a playground at all that allows us to roam free like the wildebeast.

    Getting a recognised piece of paper for Microsoft Office

    There is about a million RTOs that offer that stuff, but to my mind your better option is potentially TAFE/Uni. Specifically online/Part-time/Night courses. RTOs don't have the best name and as far as employers go, they still like higher ed quals. There are adult/bridging courses you can do in IT land which will get you basic quals as well as higher level ones. https://www.northmetrotafe.wa.edu.au/short-courses https://www.training.com.au/pt/central-tafe-perth-courses/ https://www.southmetrotafe.wa.edu.au/short-courses https://www.open.edu.au/ http://www.openuniversity.edu/courses There are also the freebie type courses (some of which you can pay to get a certificate in) https://www.edx.org/school/harvardx https://www.adelaide.edu.au/learning/adelaidex/free-online-courses If you don't like that route and really wanna go the RTO - here is the MS link for trainers they like. https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/education/training-and-events/trainers Filter for Australia/WA/Perth and you should find a few. It's a really crappy site tho. Good Luck!

    Some great reads

    Sorry Ev, I missed this. If you enjoyed Maze runner, I'd recommend The Divergent series by Veronica Roth. Ignore the Movie series. It's ok until you get to the end and realise that they changed the ending and screwed it up. Shame as the ending in the books is great. But it's recommended, especially if you've also read and enjoyed the Hunger Games book series. They did a good job with the movies, but it was not up to the standard of the books (as usual). I'm currently re-reading the Incarnations of Immortality series by Piers Anthony. Excellent series.

    oh. Just that old nutbag collection. They have been around for years wearing their tinfoil hats and waving their fists at the gubberment.

    Did I miss a memo? Go on - you know you want to get back on that soapbox of yours...

    Then to now

    Oh dear god. I got an Oppo and it is the worst. The OS is so very very bad. No app drawer, getting widgets and managing screens is awful. Bluetooth connectivity is appalling. It refuses to connect with any smart wearable at all. I'm looking at going back to an ancient Samsung I chuckled into a drawer with great relief in preference to this Oppo. I miss my trusty Huawei. It went for a swim in the loo and died a very sad death. Never again will I let a sales person talk me into a phone without triple checking it out. Oppo is by far the suckiest phone I've ever used.

    3D Printer and drawing software - advice would be nice

    I'm mainly going to be making minis for board games (i'm going to hit all the Gloomhaven summons first up), so I'm thinking Blender will be the preferred option. My Anycubic Photon arrived, so I'm gonna be setting up over the next week or two and having a play. I'll let you know how I go. From what I can see of the slicer, it's very VERY light on features, but I'm hoping it will do the job. From what I can see so far, it seems to be able to auto add supports and skirts, but I'm not entirely confident how well it will work yet. Especially since I will be importing Blender files to be sliced. I know there are a couple of alternatives if the anycubic one is awful, however I would prefer to use the manufacturer one if possible as I'd assume it would get the best results.
  11. *finger hovers over the ban button* *sighs because Nich would put on his cranky pants for frivolous bannage* *considers the mindpicture of Nich in his arseless chaps* Damn.
  12. So I'm getting a 3D printer. I think I've got it nailed down to a resin printer and I really like the Anycubic Photon (at the moment). I'm still looking for reasonable 3D drawing software. I'm currently using Blender but I haven't touched it in years and am still very VERY slowly remembering where everything is and how to use it. Any hints, tips, trick and general advice any of our resident 3D resin printer boffins might be able to provide?

    Off-topic

    Just to be transparent, Nich and I have discussed this and we like the idea of forking when it seems needed. So you may sometimes see some fork on your thread in future. Kniving is fun too, but probably not something we want to promote. Spooning is obviously greatly encouraged.

    Call Log exporting for Android

    I eventually managed to find the installer outside the playstore which I wasn't super happy about getting from a third party, but it seems to have installed and the spyware isn't too intrusive I assume they will eventually get their act together and get google to allow them to put it back in, but the apps that use those privileges seem to be having trouble. I also installed Drupe hoping that it would help with some of the phone features, but I'm not sure I like it. It doesn't have the exportable feature, and the call stuff is OK, but seems buggy. The call recording might be handy, but again seems a bit hit and miss. Finding a decent phone app seems to be harder than I thought it was. :(
  15. I'm probably just begging for bots here, but I thought I'd ask the question of our very knowledgeable droid boffins. I used to heavily use an app called "Call Log Monitor" (I think it was) which would allow me to export my call logs to excel. I work on-call and use my call logs as my timesheet. So I would grab the logs, export and email them to myself in a CSV from my phone and work from them there. Since Google have hammered the call log privileges for apps and removed all the programs which do this from the app store - does anyone have an easy way for me to actually do this now? I *really* am not keen to install an app on the computer and have to connect the phone in order to transfer them (I'm using a locked down work PC to do it and it's a pain in the tail trying to get permissions to install any new apps), so I need something like what I had. I'm on a crappy Oppo phone for reference. Any ideas?
