Re: Goodbye - but not entirely

It seems I may have upset a few people by explaining that this forum isn't the place I was led to believe it to be, and it seems some of you misinterpreted my words or the motivation behind them.

Goodbye - but not entirely

I'd just like to let people know I don't expect to be here very much in the future.

I've enjoyed my time here, and I don't mean this as a criticism of the forum, but it's not what I was expecting....

Re: A few jokes.

I remember that last one from the (very) old Mackeson adverts.

Here are a few I've seen on my travels.

Does the body shop have a spares department?

What is wool worth?

Re: Why Windows dominates desktops or why Linux has failed!

I've been using Linux (Ubuntu) for a few years now. It was a sudden change because, though I knew nothing about Linux up to that point, one thing I knew was that I didn't want Windows spyware...

Re: To Catch a Predator

I didn't read it all, but I'm not surprised. The more money they've got, the more corrupt they become, and they can always rely on their wealthy accomplices to ensure nothing ever comes of it.

Re: Google to invest $300m in 'quality news'

Having mentioned David Icke, I decided to have a look at his site, and was surprised to find him agreeing with what I said above.

Re: National animals

FratPark - I always thought it was the haggis :). Funny little creatures, and they do squeal when they're held with three legs in the air.

No offence intended if you're Scottish (or even if you're...

Re: Going Away for a while......

Not sure whether this will help, but you could try adding a number to the start of the video filenames. It's what I do.

I'm not sure whether this is a Linux problem or a browser problem.

Re: Going Away for a while......

Excellent news, and after 22 years together you know it's the right decision.

All the best to both of you (and any little ones).

Re: Google to invest $300m in 'quality news'

Funny how blatant censorship of anything that challenges commerce or the official line has morphed into "fighting fake news".

Re: Eilean Donan Castle

With more than half a century in photography, now digital after decades of "playing" with smelly chemicals, I have to agree.

I think the UK Column is right when Brian Gerrish refers to "our" prime monster (that's my term for her) as "Treason May".

Re: Nothing going cheap at Maplins folk

First we lost Tandy, now Maplins. Seems there's nowhere left for electronics enthusiasts to buy their components, not that I was ever over-impressed with Maplins' range.

Re: Native Americans were slave owners

No apology necessary Madeline. I just expressed myself a bit too forcefully, and I apologise to you.

I do get mad when I see that kind of thing, but it's not your fault.
