  1. Yes. So we show our support by liking your post instead.
  2. My mate jumps back on every now and again. Claims it's greatness once more and stops a week later.
  3. Gosh. I grew up with an equal quantity of brown and white and hadn't even twigged the white ones had disappeared.
  4. 'Cause you is rascist bruh.
  5. Great post. As an alternative, some just go quiet. Sometimes for years. Mykhal used to come here practically daily. Now he just turns up to promote his latest album
  6. Great pics. Thanks Elovia. 650 miles in one day is a helluva long day. Think i might have done half of that once. Must have been a real bummer crossing borders, just to get back and have your stuff taken. Can't you get the rifle back? Thanks for sharing.
  7. I hope it worked out well fella. Look forward to the pics. It took us 3 years to finish unloading all the boxes when we moved here. Nothing to do with the number of boxes either. Also, one of the first boxes unpacked would have been the computer. I'm ashamed to call you my Internet buddy!
  8. Took me 32 years to quit, and that was 12 years ago, so i need a good reason to ever take it up again. ...and that reason is currently planned to be a certain Dunhill pipe sitting downstairs and waiting for my 60th Birthday. I dream about smoking loads and still love the smell and thought of it.
  9. How's it affecting you. Most countries are stating they are either x weeks ahead or x weeks behind everyone else. Here in the UK, we're about 2 weeks behind Italy and a fair bit of mainland Europe. We started working from home at the beginning of last week and locked down Tuesday of this week. People are now being stopped by police if it's suspected they are out without a good reason. Although shopping and exercise are good reasons - so not so strict. If you don't have a good reason, you need an exemption certificate for being a key-worker from your employer. I'm waiting for mine, as I'm facilitating remote working for University staff, which means distributing laptops to staff at home. 8pm this evening all of the UK stood outside their houses to applaud NHS workers. My wife is a acute Nurse, so went to be applauded directly by our neighbours. So nice. Microsoft Teams has been a real godsend (for most of the world i'd guess), it's allowing me to work vary much as i would have done at the Uni, and i'm an antisocial bastard who hates meeting other human beings f2f at the best of times. Many are using Zoom too, but i heard Zoom had some ugly technical difficulties last week. I'm hearing my team saying they're suffering from isolation, missing their teams mates and the usual banter. From a personal point of view, and for now at least, i'm absolutely loving it. It feels like Christmas every day. I'm at home every day working next to my new server, which is humming away next to me, waiting to be tidied up and put away. My baby!
  10. I originally posted this on Furiant, but i finished season 1 recently. The Expanse. Must say, i loved this series, apart from the ending, which gave about as much closure as any of the other 10 episodes - i had to double check as i couldn't believe it was the last in the series. It has been picked up for a second season, but still, it wasn't a cliff hanger, it just didn't finish. Really solid sci-fi with a decent plot (from a fairly well know sci fi novel series), decent actors, decent effects and a nice ambience. I would heartily recommend it for any fan of space opera, or sci fi in general.
  11. I'm surprised you cannot play MTG over a video conference connection. Probably just because i don't know the game i guess.
  12. Photos, or it didn't happen...
  13. 1917 71% I really didn't want to like this. It uses that cheesy 'all done in a single take' effect, which was great the first time you see it, but then you just look out for the places where it's cut to look like a single take. I have to say it really worked really well in this film. It drags you into the action unwillingly, and you start to really feel a part of it. Beside that 'effect', the camera work is still startling, and you get a good sense of how awful it was without gratuitous butchery.
  14. Damn. I thought this was going to be a porn game.
  15. Mandalorian - good start The Outsider - Great series. Picard - good at the start. Last 2 eps not so much. Starship eating space flowers anyone?
  16. It's been even quieter in recent weeks. We had a flurry of posts around how the virus is impacting on our daily lives. Might be good to hear from you in that regard. About it really.
  17. (Secretly, you're quite correct). Publicly, tut.. nerds.
  18. I wish.
  19. Mate. Nobody understands it.
  20. Russia looks suspect too IMO.
  21. My willy is going to be the first to catch it.
  22. This might help. It's a great resource developed by a neighbouring Uni. John Hopkins Tracker
  23. Funnily enough she was treating someone who tested positive on Sunday, so we've agreed between us to try and be sensible about personal contact. Just keeping a bit of distance when there's not need to be physically close.
  24. Glad to hear it fella.
  25. I take it your Pres has stopped calling it a hoax. Fucking Numpty.
