Rain Rain Rain and more sodding rain. I swear there will be loud gurgling noise and the entire Hutt City will disappear below a plain of mud.

 

 

That's the attitude! As they say... every cloud has a silver lining...





"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
- John Stuart Mill

Me: Before we start, some terms. "Hold" means push the key down and keep it down. "Press" means to push and release the key, like when typing. Understood?

 

Him: Yes.

 

Me: Hold Ctrl.

 

Him: (Holds Ctrl.)

 

Me: Press K.

That's the technical term, I think.

 

I've used chromecast successfully to stream Netflix and local content to hotel TVs with a travel router but it can be hit or miss - some TVs have the HDMI locked out which is a pain

What's with the gestures - the thumb to index finger thing? What does that indicate?

Isn't it one of those signs that crims use to say which criminal enterprise they are in or whatever? Or perhaps he's on the square?

Oh please (pretty please, double pretty please BEG!) can we add Trump to the Godwin’s rule in the FUG?

So tired of hearing all the Trump bashing... please just leave it in the Trump thread?
Thanks!
