Re: FACEBOOK - 'don't like'.

In the last few days I've been reminded of a few of the less pleasant aspects of Facebook. 1. People who call out other Facebook users for not expressing their grief on the site. 2. Similarly, people who call out other Facebook users for not being effusive enough in their expression of grief. I can'...

Re: Music Industry Nicknames

Isn't it only Rod Stewart that refers to Elton John as "Sharon"? Elton calls Rod "Phyllis", apparently, when they phone each other up to chat. Hugh apparently used to give nicknames to people, Chrissie Hynde-leg was one, and Loose Windscreen was Bruce Springsteen. I can't imagine...

Re: Last book read

"Close your eyes" by Michael Robotham. A good book, I've read a few of his before and had forgotten how good they are.

Re: Uploading images

Excellent. As it turns out, the two I uploaded are still readable at 600x so it's no issue. It was just to take out the guesswork of how small things needed to get. I don't upload a lot of photos onto here, though I might go through some article scans when I get a minute.

Re: Uploading images

Could you edit the "image too large" message to include the limits? I just uploaded a couple, I always resize to 800 pixels across by whatever the aspect ratio dictates for vertical height, but it just said "too large". It'd be handy to know what the limit is. I resized both to 6...

Re: Crap Joke No.83840370

While riding my Harley, I swerved to avoid hitting a deer, lost control and landed in a ditch, severely banging my head. Dazed and confused I crawled out of the ditch to the edge of the road when a shiny new convertible pulled up with a very beautiful woman who asked, "Are you okay? As I looked...

BA have announced an offer where people can fly cheaply to Ireland one day, and Germany the next.

It's a limited deal - Eire today, Bonn tomorrow.

Re: What is your current Covid employment state?

I'm self-employed doing two different things. I've scaled one of them back as my main customer is almost but not quite closed, the other has become a bit busier as people want stuff to be able to get things done while they're staying at home.

Re: Additions, Errors, links etc here please

Re 1980 in the USA. The list says the gig for 24-Nov-1980 was in Chicago, but there's a scan of the flyer for that gig which says it was on the 28th. Meanwhile, someone on the Facebook group has posted a badge for Bogarts (which I think is in Cincinnati) for 24.11.80, and a ticket for the same date....

What weighs more? A gallon of water or a gallon of butane?

A gallon of water. Butane is a lighter fluid.

Re: F***ing Joggers

They should be arrested for going against the 2 meter rule. Ricky Gervais brought this up the other day, it's a nightmare for him to leave the house as it is, he had to wait 10 minutes outside a pharmacist, & was dangerously close to a member of the public, so he took a walk round the block, &a...
