Never pass up an opportunity to boast do you?! :laughing:


#2104

So…what you actually meant was…

I think he has a doctorate too :grin:


#2106

Now there you have the advantage over me …

VB


#2107

I do, but I have no idea how I managed that…


#2108

Well unless you’ve been to medical school then usually you write a really long essay.

I learnt to drive in Darlington so shouting that at EVERY road user was part of the test and it even had to be be prefixed with “tits on a fish” so the locals would understand.

write? isn’t that something people did last century? stopped in the 1990s didn’t it?


#2111

Burned by the sun. Not a fucking chance of that up here. Not seen the bloody thing since the summer officially started. Between that and the DUP with their simple gurning joyful faces all over the telly I’m in a grumpy mood.


#2112

I made an assumption based on how old you look🙂


#2113

Yes, we’d “progressed” to moaning at Windows 3.0 running on a 286 by the time I did my final year project at University.

In late 1980s/early 1990s I designed and built a multi core single chip processor (4 core) and ran some experiments using it to prove that multi core processors and the inherent parallelism in some code could be exploited to gain performance increases. I did complete the work in three years but it took me another 18 months to write up

The cunt of an eBay seller I bought a LP off, it was supposed to be ‘mint’, yeah right all mint LPs have pops like popcorn and scratches with lots of finger prints all over them. Anyway, he doesn’t want it back and won’t refund, and refuses to tell me his new address (you sort of need this to return it), so here we go again with dispute management and eBay. It’s £25, but it’s the bloody principle now.


#2119

Fuck the principle it’s £25


#2120

Bridge of Weir looks almost continental there. :sunglasses:
