Aye.

Today
I'm going to have my businessman undies on.
Some house work to do too.

Sunday
DB maint and reference data updates.
Maybe a bit of Excel.
Weekly bath.
Then pub - I've been avoiding going out. It's been nearly three weeks since I've been in a pub. The isolation of working at home is not good for people. It may be seriously damaging me. :freaky:

Hmmm, interesting. In my humple opinion, Milan Benes is the most boring, tedious poster on this forum followed very closely by AtW. Separated at birth perchance? Or, more likely, same person?

It's a CUK meme!

Same as Churchill says 'Gricerboy F**K Off Seriously'

Reading between the lines here. Are you saying Milan likes young boys?

Both slavics. Milan Benes is Czech and AtW came from a Siberian village where the only option is to inter-breed.

I never had ZX81 - wanted Atari based computer, called an ad for a guy who was selling Atari and colour TV in early 90s, he quoted price that was like annual salary of my both parents :frown

It was tulip architecture anyway - some years later I got finally PC at home and that's when the legend of SKA has begun...

I paid £10 for a broken ZX81. I bought a Vero Board (BCP) and 50 + push switches (about £5) to make a home-made keyboard. It had about 30 connections that I soldered to the main board.

In Soviet Unions they were giving 10+ years in jail for hard currency spekulants :eyes

Working?

Had to drive down to Truro to babysit some antenna riggers as they did some replacement work. Then make a few test calls and kerching!!
Easy money!!
Back home and drinking my first beer now!

Are you still stuck in your bottom of the pit mobile antenna site test monkey?

Here some peanuts for you to supplement your ultra-cheap Tesco Lager :eyes

If I knew what one of those was I could answer you. I would explain some of what I do, but as you are so glacially slow on the uptake on most things, I shan't waste my time as it would go so far over your head it would leave a vapour trail.

Keep your peanuts. You might need them as a deposit on your next bedsit. I'll stick to my luvverly Banana Bread Beer!
Mmmmmmmm.....shlurp!!

I can see clearly now (not that I needed this confirmation) that your schooling was very poor - had you been through Soviet school you'd know how to give very good asnwer about things you've never heard of :eyes

That is because, when you go through Soviet schooling, there are so many more things that you've never heard of.

HTH

Queues was one thing I won't have to hear or see ever again when I escaped to UK from the Soviet Russia :eyes

We still have queues here AtW. People get very particular about adherence to protocol. I hope you have not been flouting convention in this area??

Queueing to get into a bus was sure a novelty for me - at first I thought: BINGO those old ladies got no chance to get into the bus first before me!

it's not like you are queing to swap your bread stamps for actual bread :eyes

Try queueing in a local post office during lunch time - I've seen shorter queues in USSR when humanitarian aid was delivered! :tantrum:

I found bus etiquette really good in Siberia and even Moscow. You could pass the your fare to the line of passengers to the driver. No bags on seats. Men always help ladies off buses. No graffiti or badly behaved passengers.

That's because they are too scared of the police!!!!

I feel a lot better for that.

One pint of Fuller's London Pride - barely drinkable.
Two pints of Green King's IPA - Excellent form, best beer I've had in a long time.
One pint of Young's Bitter - OK, but after the IPA it was a bit of a disappointment.

Never really spoke to anyone.

For those that desire working from home - DON'T. It's not good for you.
