Otago may have been robbed but Vista/windows just robbed me of my afternoon.

Now I am without a desktop due to XP installation media not working as planned.

Pebbles said herself in the IRC channel that she's never watched Star Wars, so she's got no idea of the inside references to the Emperor, Death Star, Windows Mobile and everything else...

I just asked my sister (23yrs) to identify Star Wars characters from the original trilogy DVD cover art.

She correctly identified Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, "Leia's bed buddy" (didn't know him as Han Solo), an Ewok and Yoda. Laughing

She doesn't know how she knows the names, and claims to not have watched the films in their entirety.

What's your all-time favourite pastime?
Boring but, those rare days when it's sunny, there's nothing that needs to be done all day (very rare) and cricket, F1, football replay and motoGP are all on at different time throughout the day. Deck chair, cold beer, tv outside!  Haven't done it in years but I still remember that's what I used to love.

What Job you in at the moment?
Security, stadium and event manager.


What would your dream job be?
same as current job, but with a few more zeros on the end of my cheques. or for free if it means working at ashburton grove (Arsenal FC) in the same role.
