    Morning, yes it is nippier outside Sungod, I have already walked the dog this morning nice clear skies so hopefully we will be in for some sunshine.
    Have a good day
  • Need to dig out my winter gloves, it was a bit chilly this morning. It'll probably warm up again next week if I do.

    Some guys are installing new bike racks in our car park. I think it's going to be fun when people start using them and nobody can get a car into the car park.

    Morning All. Brat sitting again, taking them bowling seeing as young oxo is still in plaster and not allowed to ride his bike. Eldest driving today as last chance before his 2nd attempt at test. He's even doing tea tonight, God help me as most work tomorrow. Defo getting cold in the mornings, might start riding more.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    3 degrees when I got to the office this morning, Luckily I drove in like usual. Nowhere to park as the chavs pretending to be posh shooting types have parked their old range rovers everywhere. The worst sort...

    There is now a strong correlation between disco balls and demonic runes

    Donned the knee warmers, no need for full finger gloves just yet. Sluggish ride in though, maybe caused by not having any breakfast, which I must now remedy with pork, eggs and mushrooms.

    Bright one today again and nippy also looks like we find out where were being shunted off to building wise today.
    Later I shall be cracking open a bottle of Bacardi golden rum, don't just it was free from a friend who gets them from a sponsor at work.
  • veronese68veronese68 Posts: 22,770 Lives Here
    Bright and sunny out there now, dark and gloomy when I got here. Had to drive in as off to the hospital for big meeting with the quacks, hoping it's not too bad. Finding it rather difficult to concentrate on work at the moment. Maybe more tea and biscuits will help.

    Does your Dad know you were drinking Bacardi? The yoof of today :roll:

    What a glorious morning. Wall to wall blue sky. That's nearly 3 days it hasn't rained.

    So what's the correlation between demonic runes and disco balls?!

    Update later after pedalling.

    No idea, it was in this list and made me chuckle. Quite a few of those would make thread titles worthy of SG.

    Some doozies in that list indeed. Should we start a new thread as a reverse caption competition? Winner is the best picture that illustrates the caption? :D

    Did stuff all day. Is that sufficient detail? Now drinking and possibly playing cards soon.

    many eons ago i was writing the programmer's manual for a signal processing system i developed, detailed documentation is not the fun part of development, the thing was about 4cm thick when printed, on the pages for a couple of the more esoteric functions, under the 'caveats' heading, i took the opportunity to slip in the immortal...

    Back in that previous epoch, there was an error message coded in SAP which the Germans had kindly translated to English. A neat little dialog box would appear:
    This should not happen

    Mind you that was better than some of them, because they'd neglected to provide the translation at all, so your error message would simply be

    I liked that.

    My mate who was in IT gave me 2 screen saver games. Very simple. One was called 'Cat splat'. What you had to do was first select speed from Slow > Medium > Fast and Smoking. Then click on this 'Pull' icon and a cat would go meeeeeow across the screen and you used the mouse to shoot it. If you hit the cat, it would make a funny sound. The 'meouw's' and the splat sounds were all different. The problem is, it was impossible to not to be any good at it for laughing.
    Game 2 was called 'Dingo's' and you had to shoot these Dingo's from the background to the foreground before they got too close and gave you Rabies.

    it appears that you can download a zipped version here...

    however, i'd exercise extreme caution and paranoia downloading/installing files of unknown provenance, it can be a short trip to various worlds of pain, loss, and misery

    I downloaded it. Can't run it.

    I scanned it with Norton and it's safe.

    Really makes me wonder what the shoot regulars think when these guys turn up (presumably from England, the b*stards :wink: ).

    I've had a fun day talking to some drone people about drones and trees. I like trees and drones.
  • pinnopinno Posts: 39,158
    They are using drones to scan areas for de-forestation areas in Galloway Forest Park.

    The Forestry Commision? Presumably they know which areas they have felled and are awaiting restocking. They might be using them to scan for Phytopthora ramorum which kills larch rather than deforestation in the traditional sense?

    back in bournemouth. its sunny and nice and the well fit bird downstairs smiled at me.

    my concussion and echymosis have gone down.

    as a recommendation - if anyone is in Warminster I can 100% recommend the old fire station eaterie - brilliant service, delicious wood fire cooked pizzas, top beer.

    Don't know about drones, but occasionally whilst out pedalling around the lanes I come across model aircraft enthusiasts. The control is quite superb.
    What would be amazing is if miniature weapons could be attached for 'dog fights'.
    THAT would be some hobby.

    I just caught the last few minutes of a 'Border lives' episode so not sure. Seemed to me they were just scanning difficult to access areas for the purpose of felling. No mention of diseases. Is that what they are being used for?
