You give up on stuff very quickly... kvleft.gif ...Ach ne'ermind...

Well, it's bloody wet out there...Sooooo wet...It's eased up - rain wise - nearer dinnertime, but, yeesh...Yucky...

I'm having a day off tomorrow as there's much work ahead, and I'm knackered before we start...So the McWife and I are having the day together...Possibly in the ancient, Roman, walled city of Chester...Lahvley place...Sadly, it may also be a rainy place tomorrow...So, maybe not...

I suspect that much Assassin's Creed will be done tomorrow instead... laugh.gif ...I do loves me AC:Brotherhood...

I have a number (I'm not calling it a collection, or mirocu will want them) of 5 1/4" drives - just in case I ever need to read any of those disks that are covered in dust.

Well, we came up with several plans...None of which make much sense as it's PERSISTING DOWN OUTSIDE!!!!...

Good morning! IPB Image

Heres a joke.

An elderly man in Louisiana had owned a farm for several years. He had a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he fixed it up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some peach trees.

One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond and look it over, as he hadnt been there for a while. He grabbed a five-gallon bucket to bring back some fruit.

As he neared the pond he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. It turned out to be a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond.

When he made the women aware of his presence they all went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to him, Were not coming out until you leave!

The old man did some fast thinking. I didnt come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked. He held up the bucket. Im here to feed the alligator.

A mouse? You had a MOUSE? It was keyboard all the way for the Apple IIe, With its gloriously upgraded 64kb of RAM...

Actually- I still have it- and it still works.

Maybe I could get it out and crank up the original Bard's Tale on 5.25 floppy discs....
McBadgere
Oh, blimey...5.25 disks?!...That's going back...

Hey, shall I talk about &^%$-ing brother's recent purchase of a 400+ ($750-ish) vinyl turntable thingy...Or, as we oldsters like to call it, a record player... huh.gif ...It plays 78rpm records... blink.gif ...

Anyone got any of them lying about while we're at it?... laugh.gif ...
