Re: Geek Anvil (currently geeking...)

Currently geeking: my home theatre PC has given up the ghost. Support for really old nvidia graphics cards on Arch Linux is sketchy at best and trying to downgrade is a nightmare: the latest Debian image refused to install on the fecker so it's currently sitting there with a totally blank hard driv...

Re: COVID-19 coronavirus

Yeesh but did I feel ropey for a couple of days after my second Pfizer dose. I'm fine now though and a couple of days of lurgi is infinitely preferable to the Covid itself of course.

Re: Worst band you have seen live and why?

Lee mentioning the Captain reminded me of one of the times I've seen The Damned on a farewell tour; I think in the early 90s? But anyway Vanian hadn't showed up and they were obviously losing hope that he'd ever arrive. Captain came on stage and said "this one's called 'Happy Talk'" to a chorus of c...

Re: Worst band you have seen live and why?

I've been dragged to see all sorts of cr@p over the years. Del Amitri, the Railway Children... I saw Carter USM once when there were more people on stage than in the audience (and that includes the dog-on-a-string that one guy brought). Other notable bands over the years included "Didgeridoo Man" wh...

Did we really need to do the close-it-off-after-1000 thing? I thought that was (at least partially) what the new board software was for?

Hi Nigel long time no see. Can't help with the streaming thing I'm afraid; my not-exactly-legal content still tends to fall off the back of a torrent. :innocent:

Re: A Sisters Tribute album?

That "we'll try to ignore everything you put out in the last thirteen years" line hasn't aged well.

I've heard of precisely two of the bands on that compilation and if they're representative of the rest, I shall give this one a hard no.

is it true the statement about victims of covid? :? :bat:
Johnson is reported to have said he would rather see "bodies pile high in their thousands" than order a third lockdown. At least three different Tory ministers have leaked it.

Re: Re-re-run of currently watching

Thanks for that Boss.

I agree with Lee, "murdered for dressing as a goth" makes it sound like Sophie was on her way to a fancy dress party or something.

Re: COVID-19 coronavirus

The former site of Leeds Grammar is now Leeds University too - it's the School of Business.

I'm sure most of the 4:20 lot are probably students, IMO the Uni needs to do something, maybe kicking out the worst of the ringleaders.
