Off Topic / Help out thread; Shakespeare and Co
« on: 31 October, 2020, 12:44:18 AM »
Hi,

I thought it would be nice to have a thread for businesses which (a) people here might like and (b) which are in extremis and could do with help.

Most such businesses I know of are in Australia and hence not much use to you, but there's one in France that inspired me to post this.  They're called Shakespeare and Company and they published James Joyce's books back in the day.  Apparently they're up against it.  I've just bought something off them, you might like to also.

Film & TV / Youtube awesomeness and horrors
« on: 14 October, 2020, 11:40:57 AM »
There's so much free stuff on youtube, I thought I'd start a thread about it.  What do you like? What's horrendous?

I have two things in mind:

I'm watching a 1970s Soviet spy series called 'Seventeen Moments of Spring'.  It's good, if a little slow moving. Have to get used to the Nazi characters all speaking Russian.

Just after my heart op, I watched ALL of a very awful British scifi dystopian series called 'Knights  of God'.  It's The Future, the UK is run by a fascist theocracy who have exactly two sinister helicopters and a lot of hench-dudes with which to oppress the population. They're run by John Woodvine who's pretty demented.  Also features Patrick Troughton (Doctor Two) in a lion wig, and the bloke from Blakes 7. 

over to you, fellow lovers of free stuff...

Help! / Cups!
« on: 14 October, 2020, 02:02:03 AM »
I broke my lovely Mean Machine as drawn by Jock coffee cup this morning.  I regret nothing, because just keeping it around in perfect condition would give me the creeps and I've had years and years of drinking my coffee and thinking' hey, this is cool, I have a Jock Mean Machine cup!'
But I'd love a new one. 
Does anyone know if they still make/sell them? Any advice?
  I've looked here and on ebay.

yours cup-cravingly,

Floyd

General / Think a decade younger and tell me....
« on: 02 October, 2020, 09:49:41 PM »
I've been away for yonks, ie just over a decade.
Last time I was around, Dredd had some promising young clones coming along, having their own personality, teasing us about would one of them take over from him...
Stickleback was, I think, still around

I can't remember much else.  The progs were mostly awesome.  Can anyone tell me any personal highlights since then? With Dredd? With other stories?

Welcome to the board / Hello after forever, from Floyd Kermode
« on: 01 October, 2020, 11:32:34 AM »
Hi,

Floyd here.  I used to practically live on this message board, but haven't checked back in since, I dunno, 2009 or thereabouts. 
   Dunno where to start really, but, ummm, hullo.  What's good with Dredd and 2000 AD stuff in general?

Help! / Impress me with your techno wizzery
« on: 07 June, 2013, 08:42:03 AM »
I have this little medion akoya e1222 netbook and I'd like to make it dual boot with ubuntu.  I can install the thing alright, but can't do the booting because the system asks for a password and I don't know the password.  My father bought the machine at ALDI and passed it on to me.
  So far, the internet can't tell me how to get around this.  Can anyone here help?

yours optimistically,

Floyd

Help! / Web Fu? Opera Fu?
« on: 08 May, 2013, 08:18:38 AM »
Here's a trivial problem and a half.  I use Opera.  I like to search using duckduckgo.  Opera lets me put it into the preferred search engines, but keeps defaulting to google.  I go to preferences and delete google, but there it is the next time I turn on the computer.  Is there something I'm not doing?  Is it a plot by google and opera? 

yours cluelessly,

Floyd

Hi there, is anyone into Heroclix?  If so make me an offer for the following and they're yours for the top offer and postage from Melbourne.

1 set of rules and a board (not new)
Ring, counters
Judge Fear (2 available)

Torquemada (3)
Wulf Sternhammer
Judge Mortis (3)
Johnny Alpha

All in perfect nick, except for Judge Andersen, who was perched at a ridiculous angle balancing on one arm and kept falling off. She's now superglued on the whatsit lying back on her bum looking much more comfortable.

Off Topic / yoincks! followed closely by bah!
« on: 20 April, 2013, 11:05:40 PM »
(with apologies to all the 'life is', threads..I think there's room for one more.  Sometimes life is terrific and also sucks in the same moment.  In the spirit of Viz (who took it from the Beano etc), what moments made you say yoincks! and then bah! in almost the same breath?

For me, it's been:

-realising my long held dream of teaching philosophy in a high school, only to find they don't want to pay me for it

- getting my ancient asus eeepc 701 working again with ubuntu,then finding I'm typing on  part of  the smallest screen ever known to man

as Krusty used to say...well?

Help! / Facebook help aaarrgh
« on: 18 April, 2013, 04:56:24 AM »
I can't get into facebook.   Yuk, Ergh.

However, the supernice place where I work is on it and the boss is wondering if it's worthwhile paying to promote us on Facebook.  Others think that we should just share pictures and communicate a lot.

any opinions?

cheers,

Floyd
