That was 2018

That was 2018


Every month I do a “That was”. It’s mainly words to describe what happened to me in that month. Sometimes, even I forget what the words actually refer to. This is a I decided to do “That was – 2018”, a review of the year, month by month. There will also be an audio version too, published in mp3 format via ([]

January 2018

January started off with Storm Eleanor and the boiler condensate pipe still leaking. A beano to London with Mother Kelly’s and BBNo and the new Partizan home. The longest ever trip to Newport on the 50 and I joined Discord.

February 2018

The month of chitting. Apple Pay comes to Stagecoach. I go Away with a three number code. The Synology needed a new hard drive, WD Red. The Otley Brewery closed and I bought a new wrist watch. The car needed a new battery and the joy of obtaining a new radio code.

March 2018

A Red Snow Alert and working from home. Birmingham cancelled and then the no refund was a refund. Techmeme started doing a daily podcast and it was and is, excellent. Stephen Hawkin passes. Copied update borks it. The start of audio with purchase of Ferrite.

April 2018

Easter in Dorchester. All the bags were planted with Blue Danube. Fought a cold with Sudafed. Tried to freeze the verruca out at home. The little used audio page appears and a big welcome to The Velvet Owl. All the Onions went in.

May 2018

A new Android Tablet, Huawei M5. I walked into my Plum Tree. Mr Manning’s Tigger passed. A new Chromebook, with added Android. 4.5 TOG and Willy has his knee done. The start of my love of Rogue Amoeba. Hereford.

June 2018

Back to Dorchester, A visit to Weymouth with a child free Spoons and World Cup Dream Teams. WWDC, so I buy a new Chest Freezer. New eye prescription. Beelzebub opens, all tomatoes go in and various roads in Wales have a 50 mile an hour speed limit to save the world. I join Smarty as part of OTG. That noise was Pickled Onions now the Clutch

July 2018

E71 has Chinese firmware. In The Doghouse in Weymouth. The World Cup in The Convivial Rabbit. I came 3rd. The one day RWAS. USB Fan. My first tomato. Leaking roof. Plusnet‘s early morning outage. Fixed half roof.

August 2018

The Dentist with post uncommon symptoms. Facebook APIs change for the worse. The sun shone on my half roof repair. Dream Team again. The car service and an unexpected selfie at #Lolffest4. The first Blue Danube of the year. Things and people change.

September 2018

Pipes 10th Birthday Party in the Sun. Apple’s September Meh. iOS 12. Joined Boiler passed annual maintenance as the spare parts are removed from mainstream support. No Starbucks coffee in the middle of the night on the M5. Gloucester Brewery Oktoberfest. Mojave.

October 2018

The Wessex October 2018 #mb09 Beano. Train strikes and the West Dorset CAMRA Oktoberfest. No Bacon in West Dorset Costa Coffees. Oreo 8.0.0 on the 3T, unlocking issues with worse battery life. iOS 12.0.1 and an Indian October. XS quick update minus mp3 and aac. The Uphill gets a £55K new carpet. Oct-12-Bar in the Otley. Planting Summer Onions. 15 TOG.

November 2018

Loka Polly ice bucket in Tiny Rebel Newport. Another iPhone case. Some overtime and lack of project management. Rocket app. #mb11 in Worcester and a pressure warning journey. Lots of politics and Fine Ales. MacUpdater. Discovering The Head of Steam. A new Marine Woodland BDU jacket. Another Costa no Bacon incident. All the Summer Onions planted. No Good Day Internet. Unofficial Welsh Language Unit do.

December 2018

The month that just went. Lots of updates, Oxygen OS 5.0.7 and then 5.0.8, still with poor battery life. iOS 12.1.1 and 12.1.2, mostly bug fixes. Windows 1809 which put the fear of god into me, however apart from minor things, it mostly is OK. I sprung for a licence for Hindenburg Journalist, three devices in my name either Windows / Mac or both. Backpack Studio for iOS. There was Lolffest 5, a new train timetable and LED lights for the desk. Jose was sacked and I got my festive cold which I fought with Sudafed. There was a new iPad and Spoons served up my Boxing Day ideas. JCD returned to TWiT.
