    Yeah, I'm seeing some ads that suggest it's pretty easy. I would've thought you'd need a trade first though?

    I was pretty happy with how I was portrayed. Usually I'd wear a hard hat on site plus some high-vis and always fall protection when working at height... but show biz is a different world.

    I think you have to have it recalibrated quite often... I'd suggest the levels of BS on the internet increase at least monthly. Sorry.

    I got caught between two 90 seconds and went sideways into another reality where i could type by thinking the text. Didn't work out because I switch languages in my head and the spelling came out atrocious ... wait a second, that happens here too ... mm ... What year is it again? Did I shift back to the future?

    The 90 secs is rubbish. 20 is far more sensible

    Ha ha, quite true... but in the site owners world it's not called rubbish it's called traffic and traffic is good.

    How on earth did this thread only get 1 post yesterday?

    I would have thought being a public holiday it would have been given a real workout? Or perhaps all the "regulars" were too busy actually working on a project?

    It's not the same if you post directly here... you're winning when your posts are moved here.

    I wonder if we can take THIS thread so far off-topic it gets split in to two threads




    It was all Bob's fault anyway....once he posted that video of (probably not) himself, it all went nuts.

    The thread about nothing failed after the first post.
    As soon as something was posted in the thread about nothing, it was no longer true, as there was something there.

    What I wanna know is how to take an off topic thread so far off topic it gets moderated.
    As long as we keep talking about off topic things, it's on topic.



    .....right?

    On second thoughts that proves that all the posts in the thread about nothing should therefore

    have been moved to the off topic thread
