  • Commented on Report on Seat 14C
    I will definitely go with "not my thing" there. I was a teen in the 80's and the music 80-85 is definatly "my thing". I don;t object to rap / house / dance / Drum and Bass, I simply do...

    Bah. s/thee/three...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    A lot of the talk above has made me sad, and fearful, both of my personal future, and my thee teenage children's. bu happily, your "Addict as emergency fixer" made me laugh, a deep and real laugh. Thank you....
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    Indeed, that's how I got hooked on bloody ciggies for nigh on 30 years. Left the wacky backy behind a year or so after uni, took me til 3 years ago to quit tobacco....
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    > Wake me up when your world isn't run by total fucking muppets. Well, that's going to be a loooong wait, ain't it? I is approx same age as OGH, and I think I am a decent sort. This last...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    The Doors ? I remember it in the soundtrack for The Lost Boys....
  • Commented on Catching Up
    Yes, I have it in my memory that the start of the (quiet) peace negotiations and the beginning of the end of the Troubles was John Major. I am not a Tory by any means, and I disliked many of...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    Oh Charlie, you silly - they are under the *spare* bed....
  • Commented on Catching Up
    Orly? :) I'm 52, a huge fan, brought up in Leeds, like you, and I'm damned sure you're about the same age as me! Typo, I am sure. Vanity never struck me as an asset of yours....
  • Commented on Catching Up
    > but his economic policies are completely barking mad Compared with, say, continuing to increase national debt, and a vicious austerity program over the past 7 years, punishing and brutalising the disabled, and the poor, and bonus schemes for dwp's...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Greg - what's a Pen-7 - I tried gargling but couldn't find anything much. I have an OM-10 that I got for my 18th birthday, with a rather nice tele on the front - it would be cool to think...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Dunno what your AV talking about - I am behind corporate sophos AV, and it let me in sweet as you like. So either mine is crap, or yours is paranoid. Entirely likely for either to be true, sadly....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    I'm sorry if I am being a bit dim, here, but what is the "MF" that JLM is referring to in @342 ? Genuine question, I am (more) confused (than usual)....
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    My take: power grab to cement her position in absence of an opposition (I have a pot plant in conservatory that is more likely to win a GE than Labour). Cue 5 more years of misrule, austerity, cuts and bloody...
  • Commented on 2117 revisited
    Damn, that was a rabbit-hole and a half! Where's the last hour gone! Thanks for the link, absolutely fascinating....
  • Commented on Random excuses
    Also, I did not inherit his furry face characteristics -my granddad on t'other side was ginger, so I am a piebald brown / ginger / grey patchwork, which looks bloody ridiculous. Also $wife hates face fur, and will not tolerate...
  • Commented on Random excuses
    My dad just about to start chemo for prostate cancer. Last time I saw his chin was 1973, when I was 9. Will be weird if his hair falls out and his chin reappears....
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    Per R.R.Martin: GOU We do not Sow...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Damn, too quick to submit. House is about 1918, brick (bloody *hard* brick at that). Was a bugger to redecorate other side, she'd been smoking 30-40 a day for 60 years, and had not decorated since c.1970-1980. All white paint...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    And while we're on about houses, I confess to being very lucky - we bought a 3bed semi 18 years ago. A couple of years back the lady next-door pssed away, and we got the opportunity to buy other side,...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Don't get me wrong, I actually really like Grand Designs, and some of the spaces look like they would be lovely to be in. I still shudder at the thought of heating some of those volumes. I also have a...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    I love Grand Designs : "We want something different and challenging and modern" "Here, have 2 offset cubes, that'll be 3/4 million quid please. "...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    I wonder what would happen if some author extrapolated Spam / Ham wars, and wrote a book around it ? I'd read it :^)...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Thanks ever so much - it's WavingDavid. I am sure you will reblock me if I misbehave (I won't, honest)...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Tim, or OGH (if you're not too busy), any pointers to the references on legal action ? Though a constant reader for the last 4-5 years, I seem to have missed this. Also, in other spaces: anyone know why you...
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    I tried to follow cstross (I am a *very* light user of twitter), and it told me I was blocked. Shame, it would be noce to follow the ramblings of probably my most favourite author....
  • Commented on Suspense is the key
    Pigeon - sorry to derail - but are you the same Pigeon as on El Reg ?...
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    I still fondly remember discovering Ophiuchi Hotline and Steel Beach when they came out, and re-reading them at least twice each....
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Oh FFS, I'd read the back of the HP sauce bottle if I thought it had been penned by you....
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Really ? I found Seveneves impossible to finish - stopped caring at part III. But I *love* the Systems of the World books, and REAMDE, and Cryptonomicon, and Anathem....
