The last few days the topics on here have been so boring I've had to do some actual work.

Give it a shot, you never know.

The Wife (tm) was impressed with my internal guttering last night. And it stopped her from getting wet.

Is that interesting enough?

It's like this bad joke......

Still not laughing?

You first....

Had a conversation with a mate, who is absolutely adamant that we will never have AI that is as clever as humans or able to think for itself.

Forgot to get a metro today and yesterday's metro crossword was insanely difficult so I couldn't look at the answers.

Had Korean food for lunch. Pretty tasty.

Daily mail has an article about sugar baby uni students, couldn't find a link to apply

HTC Vive preorder in a few weeks, hopefully more details at the HTC conference soon, VR will be a total game changer

Thinking about getting a cat, but I don't know if that's a good idea

I'm sure they've moved the buttons in Yahoo Mail in the last few days - When deleting an email, I often press the "Archive" button! :mad

Actually, is Yahoo likely to be around much longer? Maybe I should archive all my old emails! :eek

OK, you've had your treat - Now back to work!

Most of those sound like tpd suitable.

Sugar daddies - http://forums.contractoruk.com/general/112307-ways-fund-degree.html

Cat - sounds suitable for a thread in general. You would have to give reasons for wanting one! I once got MrsBP two as she was infertile and to shut her up. A great shock when she got pregnant. We now have 4.

VR? Niche product, not going to change anything owing to the lack of shared experience with people in the same room. If you're a loner with dosh who doesn't get motion sickness, enjoy.

Cat? Do you mind cleaning up vomit because the cat has a hairball or eats like a pig? Are you prepared to deal with the possibility of this creature that has waking hours opposite yours mucking about and waking you in the middle of the night? Don't take holidays much?

I like my cat, but I think this is the end of the line for pet ownership after he shuffles off...

Yahoo mail is the WORST. I use it and the search functionality is so bad. You can click an e-mail and click 'find all messages from this sender' and I usually get 0 results, including the e-mail that I did it on. I need to switch because I often can't find e-mails I've received in the past which creates problems confirming stuff.

I think I will switch to gmail although I don't like gmail much.

Nah, no way zuckerberg paid all that money without being certain it was the future.

Try gmx.com (http://www.gmx.com/) - It's very slick, and always seems to be available, and you'll have a shorter email address.

Now I just have to take my own advice, and shift everything over from Yahoo Mail to gmx.com.

But it will be a monstrous task, because I have dozens of contacts and subscriptions etc who all use my Yahoo address. :mad:

I use gmx also, make sure you install ad-blocker plus. Also set up the email gatherer for your old accounts makes life easier. Plenty of on-line storage also. Also ensure you reserve the .com version of the address if you want it really short.

Isn't that exactly what xbox/wii/megadrive/etc were when they first came out - niche products, but now only played with by loners who don't interact with people in the same room as them, instead wear their headsets and play world of warcraft while chatting to other loners around the world?


At least VR has applications outside of playing cartoon games - some of the development being done for medical and engineering training are very promising.

Just had a bob agency on the phone

..Are you available for contracts

. yes

.. Will you consider permanent

. no

.. What's your contract rate

. blah blah blah

.. will you consider permanent

. no

.. We have this Php developer role

. I do .Net web applications

.. You do Dart Net, is that Javascript

. no

.. So you don't want a Php role in Croydon

. I wouldn't want any role in Croydon unless you supplied body armour and my own personal tank for transportation

(They put the phone down at last)

Well the Wii was more about getting people together, which is why "real" gamers were turned off. I was only talking about gaming; other applications might well turn out to be compelling, but as an entertainment medium I think it's a dead end.

I bought some Robinson hyperconcentrated fruit squash to enliven my bottle of drinking water. On the pack it says 'avoid contact with eyes'.

Something, ahem, interesting that I've just learned.

I think you have to be at least 45 to remember the Old Grey Whistle Test but do you know why it was so called?




The show’s presenter Bob Harris once explained that the name came from an old Tin Pan Alley expression.

When the first pressing of a record was made, they would play it to the doormen who were known as the “old greys” because they wore grey suits.

If they could remember the song and whistle it after one or two listens, it had passed the old grey whistle test.
