I've got about another 6 weeks before I have to pull the mower out of the shed here again DG, but the beers are going down well today. ;-)

Anyhow, C.W.#1 is dragging me around to a 3rd venue for the day (just to make the most of the sun she reckons). I maybe back later, but then again......

Cheers.

OK, who's let those VLAR's go to my GPU's?

I don't like aborting tasks but those will be.

Cheers.

I was very surprised when Clarky won the toss and elected to bat instead of bowling given the conditions. :-O

Cheers

For the 2nd day in a row we hit 13C (felt like 10C) and it was another good afternoon spent in the sun.

Cheers.

Well Beer O'clock started here, then went down the pub for an afternoon in the sun, only to return here to see the day out. :-)

Cheers.

But tomatoes belong to the same family as potatoes (Solanaceae).
Gout? Tomatoes is not the cause.
I Think you know why you may suffer gout.

I know only to well why I suffer gout when I have too many tomatoes, citric acid, I also get it from having too many oranges as well.

Cheers.

For dinner last night we had pasta tossed with a pesto sauce that I made from basil that we grew in our garden. I threw in some roasted potatoes. Sometimes I throw in green beans as well, but I didn't have any in the garden or fridge yesterday. I topped each serving with some grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and some chopped roasted walnuts.

Hmm But why serve your dish with potatoes?
I would serve it with LOTS of pomodoro (tomatoes) and some pasta:)

1 thing about tomatoes is that they give me gout. :-(

Cheers.

Cheers.

Well your "used ID is - 226846
Hal's is - 792
And mine is - 812533

Quite why you have a lower id than me seems odd but there probably is a reason.

Off topic, but since the question came up - I got UserID 5509.

About a year before SETI Classic closed down, and when BOINC was getting ready to roll, they did a bulk import of active SETI Classic users to seed the new BOINC database. I don't know how far down the list they went, but those which were imported were done in Classic ranking order - so the lower your UID now, the more Classic work you returned.

I had always wondered why my UID was so low. I figured it had something to do with signing up with BOINC during the original alpha testing, but your explanation seems rather logical. When they did the import I might have been #792, but by the time Classic ended I dropped down to #1001.

So that'd be why my user ID is 3450.

Cheers.

G'morning everyone in beer land.

It's lucky that I didn't leave any beer outside last night, it would've been frozen otherwise. :-O

It's good to hear from you again Grant and I'll have a couple for you when Beer O'clock hits here in around 3hrs. ;-)

Cheers.

That's what you get when you have a Ten Pound Pom running the country, and very poorly at that. :-(

Who is affectionately known to us Aussies as, Tony "the Mad" Abbott (or "Mad Monk" for short), for many reasons (very few of them good). ;-)

Thankfully we go back to the polls next year. :-)

Cheers.

Cheers.
