  1. I like the music and the video shows that there are people living in parts of this world so different it could be another planet. PS loving the furry didgeridoo, though what it does for the acoustics I can't say.
  2. Is it worth it I wondered to myself ? Even -pops- seems to have disappeared into the void, then I considered who am I really doing this for me or you lot ? Yep this futile continuation of something I used to do on a now defunct forum is entirely for my self gratification.
  3. As the final submission day got closer my 92 year old mother was getting worried about the official notification or to be more precise the lack of one. Speaking to my brother yesterday he mentioned that his had turned up on Saturday. So we paused and waited, it finally appeared in this mornings post, now Mum is fully compos mentis and more than capable of dealing with most bureaucrats. She is however a complete computer Luddite and doesn't do the internet so giving her six days to sort it online or face a fine is bloody minded stupidity of an amazing degree. Fortunately when we realised t
  4. In the apparent absence of breathing Windows forum members, particularly ones with a LaserJet, may I suggest a more printer focused alternative forum perhaps. Click Here As the active members of this forum can now be counted on the fingers of one hand, alternatives should be worth consideration.
  5. Just in case you think my musical taste is irremediably terrible, here is another artist I have a soft spot for and she is as far from terrible as you can get.
  6. Been a while since I engaged in any gratuitous Potus bashing, how remiss of me. Sayonara El Presidente, whatever good you achieved wiped out by a refusal to refute extreme right wingers and the lunatic fringe as long as they were useful and to cap it all a ridiculous and increasingly desperate attempt to overthrow the democratic process.
  7. Probably true but in my defence in all the years I have been aware of Death Rabbits or Desu Rabbits as they became, I have never once felt the urge to exchange any of my hard earned readies for one of their CDs and you can believe it when I admit to spending quite a bit on some truly weird assed product from the land of the rising sun & Mongolia. Let's say that the original incarnation of three tiny girls and a storm trooper doing death metal growls proved the improbable assertion that there was stuff out there too off the wall even for me.
  8. Time to freak you out a bit. Stage one. Tempus fugit. Stage two. The little one is now the tall one.
  9. Too true ! Always liked the classic dance routines and the Nicholas brothers flying splits routine is as spectacular now as when they did it and the rising from the splits without assistance, I still come over H T F did they do that when I see it.
  10. Cop a load of this. Proper Crimbo innit ! May 2021 be an improvement for all of you.
  11. Twisted Sister was one of those bands that the music press kept telling me I should like, Somehow I never did agree with them.
  12. So that's why your owls eyes are bulging so enormously ! Have you considered trying to attract some of the old guard with a stirring piece of Mahler ?
  13. I'm not sure if this is Novembers contribution delivered late or an early one for December, only time will tell.
  14. Back in the day I had a mate with extremely understanding parents and an enormous LP collection who could be relied upon to produce somewhat illegal copies when provided with a blank cassette, he certainly did me an Ash tape but I can't remember what was on it. As to spending my own cash I remember buying Twin Barrels Burning.
  15. One from the archives that would have been guaranteed to send the Burntwood contingent into a right tizzy. A band I saw at the The Lyceum Sheffield more years ago than I care to recollect. The main thing I remember was that their sound guy had clearly overestimated the size of the venue and the gig was painfully loud even for a seasoned rocker, people were stuffing there hair in the ears trying to tone it down.
  16. A day or so late but I doubt anybody noticed or cared overmuch, here goes with the September donation to the anti tedium fund. Hiryu High School Wadaiko Club-The 2nd National High School Taiko Koshien Grand Prize Mt. Fuji Taiko Festival
  17. And with a fizzle not a bang it ends, I did rejoin to say a few farewells but in common with all users we've been anonymized and I am now officially " Anon-2462831 ". I did post a link here but as we've not had any new accounts set up since Barbican 75 in April and he/she has proven a person of few words, it looks as if we've not pulled in any new blood.
  18. Perhaps you should drop them a link and invite them over here ? Neither forum exactly prospering but unless Craig decides to pull the plug we do at least have a viable platform that forum users could migrate to. Just a thought.
  19. Looks as If I jumped ship just in time as Techadvisor forum has just announced it's closing up shop on 2nd September. Can't say I'm surprised, after the last redesign of the website the forums vanished from the main toolbar and were consigned to the bottom of a dropdown menu on the "More" tab. Hardly the best spot if you actually have any interest in people finding and using it. This design faux pas was pointed out by several users including yours truly but was never corrected, which rather confirmed that the powers that be had lost interest and wanted an excuse to bury it.
  20. Not bad all things considered particularly for ninety two, still fully compos mentis. We go out shopping every week but have yet to resume the weekly dining out at a hostelry of her choice. We talk about it but I think she's still a bit wary of the covid situation so it keeps getting put off. We will have another think on it next week. You ?
  21. So you live in the real world, that explains a lot. Me I'm unsure, I think I may be fictional or perhaps a figment of your imagination. In which case may I suggest that you need a rest as coming up with something like me is a clear sign of a deranged mind.
  22. Depends on the Internet speed at your end, but some reports suggest the download is 4GB so it could take a while. There are also suggestions that the development path for 2004 has been far from smooth with a handy supply of bugs, many seem to have taken quite some time to fix. So unless you really want the security update it seems best practise to leave it as long as possible and have other users debug it for you and let Microsoft iron out the nasties before you bite the bullet. https://www.computerworld.com/article/3561635/bumps-on-the-road-to-the-win10-version-2004-rollout.html#:
  23. Not sure I understand that as the clip was definitely there when originally posted, I could see it. I have successfully inserted an alternative which I'm sure the absentee contingent would enjoy were they not frequenting the optimistically titled Overfifties.
  24. Looked at it with various browsers on Linux and Windows and so far can't insert the youtube code successfully. I'll take another shot next month before applying my life motto;-
