Thinking of doing the same, got my eye on a laptop with an i5 quad core processor and a gtx 950m graphics card. Phwoar eh lads :)

Kitchen's ready
Apron's on
Ingredients weighed out
Oven heating

Operation Ginger Shortbread is Go, Go, Go!

No need for tin hats though as I shan't be launching any; wouldn't want any more unplanned outages - no telling what we might lose next time :-)

I guess that's one way to forget, not one I'd recommend though ;-)

....Susie's Ginger Shortbread cures most things ;-)



(If you think I'm trying to butter her up for a safely delivered sample then you are quite correct.)

Wellllllll ...

Oh alright. I have been devising a targeting system so perhaps it's time to test it out over a longer distance.

A limited run of two samples sent, one to each of you. Please report results.

PS Not sure if it's down to the curative effects of the ginger shortbread but the men in white coats have yet to make an appearance :-)

PPS Any of you know who the webmeister is? If so, could you ask them politely if we could have our icons back please, if it's not too much trouble :)

Ooh free samples you say...

Which window should I leave open? North or south facing?

As to webmeister I think Eric's teh man. *waves to get Eric's attention* :)

As a reward for contacting webmeister I shall extend my limited sample run.

Don't worry about which window to leave open. The targeting system is very sophisticated, it'll find you whichever :-)

Good afternoon everyone. :-)

If I weren't on the Atkins Plan, I'd be interested in Susie's ginger shortbread cookies... Oh well, next year when I'm on the maintenance side of the Plan and have reached my goal weight I can partake.

Afternoon TL

Good luck with your diet!

You may be interested to know that a side effect of my delivery system is that the shortbread is calorie- and carb-free by the time it reaches you. On the assumption that this has changed your mind, I have again extended my sample run - just keep your windows shut if you don't want it :-)

For this kind of stuff the webmeister is likely Dr. A and not Eric. However if the files just accidentally got trashed Eric / Jeff / Matt would have enough access to make them appear. However if Dr. A is playing with the code, well, Our Father who art in Heaven ....

*yawn*
I must admit I would have just corrected the typo, but you seem to be poating so happily away...
So, carry on.
And if the symbols aren't fixed after next maintenance I suppose I'll drop David a mail.
If I don't forget. I'm juggling 3 to do lists. I definitely need more paper.

Do I take it the new targeting system worked as it should and you received your ginger shortbread?

... one step closer to the bun launcher ;-)

PS the typos seem to be catching. As you have such faith in the curative effects of my ginger shortbread, maybe this is something else it can cure :-)

It does seem the rate of correct prestidigitation has fallen around here.
