    What's going on now?

    The site was down for maintenance? earlier today, since then when clicking in I am being taken to the 'what's new' page. It's a pain in the bum. Anybody else have this?

    Well my 'preferred' method of viewing the forum is via the 'Whats New' page, but when I click on it, I get directed to the Current Activity page, which I've never seen before.

      Well, you must be the Favoured Ones. I just get the forum homepage as usual.

          I see a new ‘What’s New’ tab, and that is what my LLZ bookmark is now pointing to, but next to that tab is the original ‘Forum’ tab, so changing the LLZ bookmark back to the original ‘Forum’ link should get you back to where you were.

                She must have been extra hungry after playing in the new Activity Stream (which sounds more exciting than it actually is).

                  One of my fellow committee members (for the London flat) mentioned her computer problems and I stupidly offered to help.

                  The original pre installed software and drivers had been deleted by her son's friend " who knows about computers" which meant that most of the hardware stopped working.

                  She had decided to clean the case up ( she knows that I am a neat freak) and remove the "annoying loose label", which contained the only software key.

                  One ftp site and a Thursday evening later.....

                  No good deed goes unpunished!

                    What London flat?

                    You keep referring to it like that (i.e. using the definite article deixically), but we don't know which flat you're on about.

                      I thought it was in keeping with a discussion which has a nice deixical theme.

                      The use of "the" as opposed to "my" is simply another useage with which you are yet to become familiar. Millions are long used to it...

                      It reminds me of a Science teacher who took great pleasure in "learning through sarcasm or pedantry". While it was amusing at first, it came to grate on most of the class.

                      He picked on a classmate, who by nature was a shy type, about him and his family having "gone up to London" and rather dramatically asking "Where is London, is it up there, in the sky".

                      I walked out and returned with a globe and showed, through lines of latitude, that London was north of Sussex and by great circle route, approximately 30 miles north.

                        Which reminds me of my science teacher, one day he told us he had 'invented' a couple of words to help us understand a particular lesson he was giving. I firmly believed he had invented those words and they always stuck in my head, well into my adulthood I realised that 'porous' and 'non-porous' were pretty standard words.

                          Good story.

                          Porous sparked the tale of my A level geography teacher, who I have mentioned before. The class of 6 of us decided to invent a form of river delta and put it into our homework.

                          We all swore blind that he had told us about it and that they only occurred in China and Andorra. And we had the diagrams in our class work to prove it !

                          I wasn't as successful in arguing that there are Fjords in Western Ireland though.....

                            ),

                              Nor did he see that Andorra begin landlocked, is unlikely to have a delta!

                              Our physical Geography texts did not mention Eire-an Fjords, as it was a comprehensive they couldn't afford Fjords, but I had found it in another text which was reference only in the local library. I tried for a field trip but no success.

                              Still it ended with tears...

                              after reciting the Parrot Sketch in a Irish accent about the Killarney Blue.
