Lemsip o'clock :) Cheers :)

@Anniet So far so good, although every time I sneeze/blow my nose my head feels like it's going to explode :( Cheers :)


I've never heard of Lemsip, but I wish you a speedy recovery from whatever ails you.

Nothing like good cold ice water here. :~)

Personally I'd go for the old naval rum remedy instead of the Lemsip myself Zapped. ;-)

In fact I think that it's time for the changeover from Beer O'clock to Rum O'clock (and decide what I'm going to have for dinner). :-D

Cheers.

G'day Julie, Mike & Zapped.

Well I've finally finished all my domestic duties for the day (including tomorrow's vacuuming) so what am I going to do now for the next 90mins?

Cheers.

Even though Charles' RAC has dropped a lot lately he's still the 1st to pass 1,000,000,000 cobblestones mark (not bad for just under 15 months of crunching).

Congratz Charles.

Cheers.

Just take it easy and get well Grant. ;-)

Well I've just finished mowing my backyard (the laneway & front yard can wait for another day) and even though it's 30mins early this 1st beer is going down very well.

Cheers.

Glenn you don't need to go to that large wattage PSU, just buy a top quality brand/model of the same rating (or a bit lower) and make sure that it only has a single 12V rail.

Cheers.

Well was that an outrage or what?

Cheers.

Well seeing the site is back up I better finally judge this.

3rd place is Admiral Gloval with "Houston....We have a problem."

2nd place is N9JFE David S with "Dispatch, this is Collision Investigation. I need Collision Investigation out here..."

Winning this round is KWSN THE Holy Hand Grenade! with "Who suddenly slapped me into America, where they drive on the wrong side of the road?"

PM on the way.

Cheers.

It's just a thought, but has anyone on your team done any work here since the changeover from SETI@home Classic to BOINC SETI@home?

Cheers.

It worked so good that I've had another 2 beers since thanks Monday. ;-)

It is nice here that I can put the mower away for 4mths of the year, but the concrete mow stripping, garden rock/brick borders and 1 colourbond fence has now created a few strips that are fairly high (12-14") over winter now.

Cheers.

Well after swinging the brush-cutter around for about 90mins (would've been longer if I hadn't run out of line) I've got 1 hell of a sore back, my hands are vibrating and a piece of grass in my throat that can't decide if it wants to make me cough or make me choke. :-(

Hopefully a mouth full of this beer will at least cure the last 1 at least (after its shaky pour). ;-)

Cheers.

Not to mention that it's an old subject that has already been discussed here some time back now. ;-)

When we lived in Sydney I had to share the kitchen and being a shift worker with odd days off made kitchen disasters the night before a nightmare. :-(

Bats & Moths

It shouldn't be much longer and I'll be seeing the bats dinning on the moths flying under the highway lights out front of a night again.

Well I learned something today, I didn't know that there were 2 types of leeches (I only knew of the blood suckers) let alone a carnivorous one that grows up to 50cm/19.7". :-O

G'day Mike, that doesn't like it worked out very well. :-O

Well the brewroom is ready to go, now I've got about 30mins to find out if this brewing lesson will be done this morning or tomorrow morning (if not today, then I'll start on the 1st mow since last winter began).

Beer O'clock in about 3hrs.

Cheers.

G'morning to anyone still awake on the flip side of this world. :-D

I finally made it here and we have a lovely warm & sunny start to this Saturday.

Beer O'clock in just under 4hrs away, so I'll just get myself another coffee.

Cheers.

I often see the "large grain of rice" recommendation & to be honest I have never really seen a "large" grain of rice. I normally end up using about a half pea size amount of compound. Which may be the same amount of the "large grain of rice".

Just grab a bag of long grain rice and look for the biggest 1's, easy. That would make it less than a quarter of a pea (unless you have smaller peas over there than we do here). ;-)

Cheers.
