What's on your mind?
NikGnashers: Thank goodness black Friday is over (and black Monday Tuesday Wednesday thurs......... Nov 26, 2016 7:28:29 GMT
vikingblues: Great to find just a handful of e-mails this morning! Bye-bye Spam Friday! :thumbup: Nov 26, 2016 8:03:23 GMT
walkingdecay: I was narked when BT started to charge for my legacy email account a few years back, but letting go had the benefit of cutting off over a decade's-worth of spammmers. The downside is that there are now two of me on this forum. Nov 28, 2016 9:51:30 GMT
scorpiodog: Better two of you than none, Pete Nov 28, 2016 10:23:45 GMT
walkingdecay: Flatterer. I bet you secretly like the other me better. Nov 28, 2016 11:07:02 GMT
scorpiodog: If I knew which one of you had said that I would answer honestly. Nov 28, 2016 16:14:23 GMT
walkingdecay: Teehee! Nov 28, 2016 23:27:20 GMT
walkingdecay: Old Man Trump is a song Woody Guthrie wrote about Donald Trump's dad. Nov 29, 2016 12:46:55 GMT
walkingdecay: Hey Martin, Oblivion is back compatible now - as if there isn't already enough of Skyrim. I discovered that if you have the GOTY edition the DLC only installs if you put the second disc in and not the first, by the way. Nov 30, 2016 10:17:27 GMT
Martin: Excellent. I never completed Oblivion. Used the duplicate item trick so much that I became massively overpowered and just messed about after that (rofl) Thanks for the tip, will check it out :thumbup: Nov 30, 2016 11:22:30 GMT
walkingdecay: Part of an email from my son, apparently meant to encourage me before a visit to the dentist: "Remember Hastings, remember the Light Brigade, remember Gallipoli, remember you're a womble." Dec 1, 2016 8:59:03 GMT
ocarolan: "Feelings, nothing more than feelings....." Dec 1, 2016 11:46:57 GMT
walkingdecay: Oh don't. I've got to go in an hour, and while I know the experience is not as bad as it used to be I never got over the experience of looking up and seeing a nurse give a young dentist a look that said "What the hell are you doing?" Dec 1, 2016 12:15:54 GMT
ocarolan: How did it go Pete? Dec 1, 2016 23:34:39 GMT
walkingdecay: Alright thanks, Keith. Probably less than 15 minutes in all, but it's the feeling of helplessness that gets to me. I told myself that at least there's less wild guesswork in dentistry than there is in doctoring. Dec 2, 2016 7:25:33 GMT
walkingdecay: Sounds like Les Dawson, but as near as darnit to getting it right: Warning: Keyboard content. Dec 2, 2016 8:54:54 GMT *
walkingdecay: No it isn't. This guy gets it right: He has the confident Gershwin left hand, where I don't. Aaaaaaagh! Dec 2, 2016 9:10:28 GMT *
ocarolan: Glad you survived! Though I'm not too sure about dentistry/guesswork.... ;) Dec 2, 2016 9:56:03 GMT
walkingdecay: Westworld turned out to be a touchstone for a lot of 21st century TV: beautifully produced, with some compelling and even thought-provoking ideas - but often quite boring. Oh well, Mozart In The Jungle is back tomorrow. Dec 8, 2016 12:51:53 GMT
