Sync Sunk and Bees

So, as it happens, The Missing Sync isn’t as good as it purports to be. The functionality is great – it does a lot of fab stuff – it just, well, crashes. A lot. Like ALL THE TIME. Not only that, but it makes my shiny mac unstable and that’s something I Will Not Have ™.

So, I’ve flipped over to SyncMate which, while the free version is fairly limited, does what I need and doesn’t asplode if I look at it funny.

Also – apropos of nothing – I have bumblebees in my garden! We have a little random patch of orangey-yellowy flowers which were happily growing in a little greenhouse. Unfortunately, the greenhouse was pretty much wiped out after a particularly nasty storm, but the little flowers fled to freedom. So we just left them where they fell and they’ve now sprouted into a big colourful mongsplat of plant-life, complete with climby tendril things. And they attract bees! Which is ACE.

  • Beeeeeeees!

    are not ace. They’re the Scottish equivalent of the mental things you found in your garden in Australia, only they just hurt you instead of killing you dead.

  • No, I’m thinking of bees. Admittedly less likely to sting you than wasps, but still bloody painful.

    Wasps are definitely worse, but bees are not ace!

  • You’re just plain wrong. Bees are ACE. They serve a vital purpose – they make the wonderful variety of plants and flowers pollinate and cross-pollinate and they provide honey. They’ll sting as a very last resort.

    Wasps, however, serve no positive purpose whatsoever. They are the neds of the animal kingdom – they produce nothing, they provide no service to anyone, they exist only to sting people. If they were larger, they’d wear baseball caps and nylon sportswear.

    And Debbie says “And bees are soft and fluffy. And bees are soft and fluffy. And bees are soft and fluffy. And bees are soft and fluffy. And bees are soft and fluffy. And bees are soft and fluffy. And bees are soft and fluffy.”
