Did you ever see the movie 10. Just like that, blame it on the dog.

Coming from someone that likes cigars it must be bad. Few things on the planet stink worse than a cigar.

You've been around the wrong cigars.....IMO, there are few things on the planet that smell better than a good cigar.

Yea right. A good cigar is like a good skunk. Different strokes for different folks. There has never been and never will be a good cigar. That is my opinion and I am sticking to it.

I thought it sounded like we are having a thunderstorm - hard to tell in the center of this building.

The met bureau have released a flood warning for the area. Should be fun.

TGUK is not on BBCA, right? Just checking to make sure I have not been missing out. I am fine with waiting rather than downloading.

Nope, just on real BBC. I don't get BBCA, so I download, and by downloading you get the uncut, true version, not the made for Amerikun TV version....

interesting.... i can say for certain that the shift points are different in the 951 vs my '83 944, by a lot.

I haven't noticed anything obviously missing. What kind of stuff do they cut? It seems the news is full length.

Yeah, but I am not feeling argumentative tonight so I won't try to convince Vas. He would need a new first anyway and that is out of the question since it requires a new mainshaft as well.

getting windows 7 working again. it installed really damn fast and found all my hardware. but then it takes a bunch of time to get all my drives mapped (about 10) and to get the machine at a point where i consider it usable (proper video drivers, virus protection, IP blocker, shortcuts to make life easier for my wife, firefox installed and prepped, codecs, etc.).

windy? with a 9mm? what range are you shooting it?

I'm not worried about the wind affecting the 9mm, its all the dirt blowing across the plowed field south of where I shoot. Just makes it farking miserable. Plus it make it hell to keep targets up.
