Sorted! Easy solution to stop the slow green progress bar in File Explorer.

This has irritated me for months now but I finally figured out how to prevent the very slow progress bar when I search for files and it is really easy.

1. Click inside the search box of your folder (in case you are wondering, mine is called Site visit reports):

2. Select Advanced Options:

3. Look for File Contents:

4. If there is a check mark next to File Contents, click to remove it:

5. Now type something in the search box and watch your searches fly. It makes sense because it must mean that the search tool is looking inside each file rather just looking for the file name, which I guess is all that most people want to do when searching.

Another estate agent scam

I’m shall be moving again soon, and was told by the estate agent that even though I had thoroughly cleaned the oven myself, I had to have it done by a so called professional, or they would not return my deposit. With my current financial state best described as not having a pot to piss in, I had no choice but to pay the ransom. Within ten seconds of the professional opening the oven door, he offered me a job. It should be the condition of the property at handover that determines whether or not a deposit is returned, not who did the cleaning. Let’s start a petition!!

Easy solution to World Cup bribery

At the risk of repeating myself, I ask this question: why do we have to witness the merry-go-round of sleazebags lying and conning their way around the world in an attempt to convince a group of money grabbing toerags that the football World Cup should be hosted by their respective countries? It is tiresome, tedious, trickery and very, very boring.

What is wrong with having a rotational system? I see many benefits and zero negatives:

  1. Every country would be given the opportunity to host an event, subject to meeting the required standards.
  2. Host countries would know decades in advance when it was their turn, enabling them to plan it better.
  3. There would be no need for the bribery we see today each time an event is to be allocated.
  4. Countries could stop squandering ridiculous amounts of money on other ‘legitimate’ methods of persuading those that hold the voting powers. The 1,752 page book produced by the FA for England’s bid for the 2018 World Cup being a perfect example.
  5. When a country’s turn to host is due, but they do not wish to accept it, they go to the back of the line and the opportunity to host is offered to the next country in the list. Simple.
