Another Thorsday is here so another celebration is called for. :-D

Thor has been spending quite a bit of the last week here and is likely to return sometime today.

All Hail Thor!!!

Cheers.

G'morning everyone, from another wet start down under.

Sorry about not being around much, but between work & C.W.#1 I've had very little time for anything else, but I don't miss out on any beers.

I've got to clean my brewroom up today after yesterday's massive effort (more rum & bourbon back in stock) and if C.W.#1 doesn't turn up I might even get another beer brew down.

Anyhow, as Beer O'clock is still a few hours away I better get myself another coffee. ;-)

Cheers.

I wish that I'd had the money and bought a few Win7 Home Prem & Pro OEM disks a few months ago as they've gone up here by almost 95% recently (Win10 versions are very comparable in price ranges also). :-(

Cheers.

Another good Thorsday celebration was had here, and a bit quieter than usual. :-D

Now to prepare for the weekend.

All Hail Thor!!!

Cheers.

That's another thing with beer when pushing double digits, it's very very hard to get a good and consistent flavoured brew.

Cheers.

It's worth a try, but if it gets too malty just add half a kilo of dextrose to your current mix to boost it. If I increase the amount of dextrose used here by 50% I get a 9% beer, but I tend to fall off my milk crate at that level. ;-)

Cheers.

I just use dextrose instead of malt in mine (it's malty enough for me already) which gives me around a 6% beer Mike, though I havn't tested mine in a lot of years (but I can't see it being any different these days to way back then).

Cheers.

You use a beer & wine hydrometer to roughly determine the alcohol content and here's a quick how to on it.

G'day Mike, what questions would they be?

Cheers.

People here seem to enjoy bringing my personal life into this discussion.

Now that's rich coming from the person that 1st crossed that "line that should have never been crossed" in the 1st place.

Then you complain about "personal attacks" (sounds a lot like Clyde does these days) when a lot of your posts are just that (see above comment), and when not they look just like they come from your typical "know it all, know nothing" school yard bully.

I find it also very funny that when you've backed yourself into a corner Hev turns up to try and pull you out (that pattern repeats itself constantly and is also very predictable), you never see Hev otherwise.

You expect others to abide by 1 rule, but you act/think like that rule doesn't apply to you.

And all this from someone who would be expected to set a good example to others and not a bad 1's?

Well suck it up and stop complaining as you are the 1 responsible for it in the 1st place so live with it.

Cheers.

The 1st time in a while that I've found things actually running and not crashed. ;-)

G'evening everyone, I hope that all are well.
.

Well Beer O'clock here has finished. :-(

But Rum O'clock has commenced. :-D

Between C.W.#1 and the servers either being down or very, very slow (sometimes totally unresponsive) I havn't had much of a chance to get into the forums lately (though it seems to have been a bit quiet in this thread lately).

I'll go and see how much catching up I can do.

Cheers.

Probably all those loading up for the WOW Event.

Also it's almost impossible to check my tasks lists presently. :-(

[edit] I'd also like to know where all the active splitters on Splitter Status came from. :-O

Cheers.

AFAIK you only have to remove and hide the KB3035583 update (searching finds no other related update for this) which kicks in the GWX.exe.

This update should not be present if you only select to get critical updates and no optional updates (plain auto updates will give you everything M$ wants to give you).

Here is how to get rid of the thing if it bugs you, http://www.howtogeek.com/218856/how-do-you-disable-the-get-windows-10-icon-shown-in-the-notification-tray/.

Australia, out in front of the world again.

That's what you get with a 10 pound Pom running the country who thinks that everyone should be christians and marriage is only for female/male couples.

That should be rectified in the next year (if he can last that long). ;-)

he also likes deporting people so once he's finished up here we can deport him back to London where he came from :-D

Cheers.
