  6. Chasm: The Rift Have been playing the abandonware version of it, using Panzerchasm (enables all the features for modern hardware) and I have been really really enjoying it. I would love a hardcopy of this for nostalgia and collectible reasons. Had a quick look on eBay, and it seems that is on sale for well over two hundred pounds!!!! I can understand why though, I guess this game does fall into the collectibles bracket, and don't have high hopes of finding it cheaper anywhere else. However, I’m going to ask my trusty peoples and friends at Datashack, if they have any connections of finding it cheaper elsewhere .. So just asking before I give up on the idea, hehe Any takers? Slim nb : Probably gonna make a youtube vid if I can get hold of a hardcopy, to celebrate the occasion
  7. Aye Fon A lot of human lives have been sacrificed due to the handling of this pandemic. Our mortality rate is one of the highest globally. Initially the (belated) lockdown was a good move but easing the restrictions was a big mistake this early, and for the sake of looking "good" in the eyes of the public, the figures that are being reported now I feel are somewhat inaccurate . How do I know ? Well I don't , but when you got a virus of this nature doing the rounds, a lot of people are going to die irrespective of lifting the restrictions or not. Easing the restrictions for the sake of the economy is genocidal and idiotic. If I had a choice between losing my life, or going back to the ways of a caveman, I'd choose caveman any day. Sounds funny when I read it back, but this shit has been documented before, take the technology away, take the conveniences of life away , and that is exactly what you get. Expect more deaths to come Yours faithfully Dr Optimism
  8. Where to start! I always plan for the worst with problems. First day of lock down when the shelves were empty in the supermarket, I bought two months of frozen food from a food wholesaler. Dug an old freezer out the shed and filled it up. (iv now given all of it to the food banks) Then spent a small fortune on the garden for kids toys. I have two under 10's and thought they would probably be spending a year at home. We have slides, swings, inflatable hot tubs etc. Grass is now completely ruined! Im skint!! I invested what I had left in the companies making tests for the virus. At one point I had tripled my money, but got out of the shares today with just over double my money. Teaching the kids from home took a long time to find a routeen, but we finally got one and it wasnt as hard. (Bare in mind im already a teacher so I didnt have to learn the skills of teaching. Just the subjects and routeen that worked.) Then Iv been called back to work. The Mrs is trying to now teach them from home (shes not a teacher) And work from home at the same time. Its difficult! Work is a pain in the arse. We have to fly wearing face masks. Not the doctor type you see on the tv, more something that looks like a welders mask. Water is running into my eyes from sweat! Everything takes longer as we have to clean inside the aircraft first. With being invested in testing iv been looking at stats daily. I personally think more people have died than the goverment has admitted. Im comparing total deaths regardless of reason from year to year. Fon
  9. Worked throughout the whole thing and so busy now we're easing out of lockdown. Making hay while the sun shines because i think business will die a death at the back end of the year. Counting down the days until the pubs open. Not a huge drinker but do like a good dinner and a few pints in a beer garden. Hope the rest of you and your families are well. I honestly think they got just about everything wrong concerning this virus, starting with being way too slow to lockdown and still allowing foot passengers on plains etc. Oh well, the damage is done and we'll just have to pick up the pieces.
  10. All good here, got a lot of support from family and friends. so all good. 20 miles dude ? Bloody ell, you'll have legs like tree trunks by August hehe. Minty, djing eh ? Kewl, I gotta lil thing on the go with djing and stuff, you on mixcloud/soundcloud ? Slim
  11. Been working all through this. got my DJ decks out on a Friday night with a few beers 😁
  12. you all been keeping occupied? back to work yet? ive been doing about 20 miles a day on my bike, got a bit so a sun burn yesterday so never slept much last night. been told not to expect to be back at work till august at least. i work in theatre so doubt we'll be doing any shows soon so still a bit to go for me. how you all getting on?
  13. Ahhhh dude, your reply got me thinking, and I have a workaround, well, a kind of workaround... so if you can write anything, then I just removed the https:// portion of my website. And of course, it works !!! Cheers buddy , a cheeky fix I would say hehe Slim
  14. Nothing much has really changed for me. I work in recycling :)
  15. With the electric now cheap during the day, iv bought a lay z spa, inflatable hot tub. The kids love it and ask to go in every day. The plan is to let it down over winter. But for now, there enjoyment comes first. Although we tend to go in once the kids are in bed, lol! Fon
  16. hey i was going daft buying things online to keep me occupied but cabin fever is setting in. find myself staring out the window all day haha(i do get an amazing view though) doing daily stretching, squats etc that my keep fit dude is emailing me every day but they only take 5 mins so im also getting a bit of a plump on. my diet has got a lot better though with me making all the meals every night but im obviously not running about work all day to keep the step count up. alls well really, enjoying being off work. got loads of house work done too. i was never a wine drinker but discovered peach and mango flavour. drinking it like irn bru now haha hic stay safe all k
  17. Im drinking more beer and getting fatter. We have spent a load of money on garden toys to stop the kids from being bored. Were both semi trying to work from home taking turns to teach the kids. The school has been really good. They have started using google classroom and setting the kids projects. This helps us a parents focus on teaching and were actually getting more done. I'm getting bored of the same meals, but realizing how much we actually ate out and had takeaways and thats saving us money. Iv just transferred the electric to Octopus Agile. Its a weird one where they change the rate for electric every 30 mins. Its basically cheap as fook during the day and then they ramp it up at 4pm when everyone is cooking. We are now finishing cooking by 4pm and are saving a fortune. For the last two days they have been paying us to use electric as the wind was strong and there was too much supply on the grid. I had everything turned on! Electric floors, car charging, I actually boiled the kettle so many times I thought it would break if I did it again! Theres a referral of £50 paid on your account if you want to use my referral code. I did that with someone else and it paid for the early termination of my current supplier, whilst leaving me in credit. Ill probably leave them once the kids are back in school, but theres no early cancellation fee, so I'm quids in! This wasn't meant to be an add, Im just typing away and it came out. If anyone wants any more info just ask. The kids seem to be ok, but I think my oldest (9) is starting to feel the boredom. She also seems scared of leaving the house for a walk, or is just getting house bound and doesn't want to leave, im not sure. How are you all finding it? Fon
  18. i let mine slip while my comp was out of action, anyone got an invite? cheers

    I had the biggest of plans. Kids would wake up, still put on their school uniform, (so that we could distinguish when school started and finished. We would teach them, with all the breaks they have at school etc. The whole thing has turned into a shower of shit. Although me and Mrs Fon are both semi working from home, we wake up late, and by the time we have had breakfast and gone for a walk, its lunchtime. Then after lunch there is some clearing up, and playing in the garden. Were lucky if we do an hour of school work with the kids. However, in school, they tend to make them spell something and then colour or paint it etc. So I dont think its all that bad. As long as we keep the reading / writing and maths going I think were doing ok. We have spent a small fortune on garden toys, (swings slides etc) as I doubt very much there will be a holiday this year. We have also started getting in touch with other parents and letting the kids video chat. This, I learnt very quickly, is important! I thought they would have a 10 min chat and then get bored. One and half hours later, of playing, laughing, and having fun you realize they miss their mates. I think as adults we take the fact we can still communicate too lightly. Both my kids are under 9. I now know of a few people who have had this virus. The numbers are growing daily. Stay safe friends. Fon
  20. Still in work and cant see it changing anytime soon.I havent got time to scratch my own head!! I work at a cereal manufacturing plant and sales have rocketed, like you woulnt believe. We cant get it out of the door quick enough. Fon, i have friends in the Canaries and there have been reports of people being pulled over by the Guardia and they have asked for their till receipt, from shopping. They have a look and if there is no essential items on it, they have hit em with a fine.

    coronavirus

    I've grabbed golf club 2 and tomb raider to whittle away the hours. My gym set a30 day challenge of light exercise they email me a video every day and a went a walk the last 2 days. Not been near anyone else in ages. Phone never stops buzzing ringing plinking and plonking with every social media app known to man gong constantly. Got furloughed from work, work is making up the other 20% of my average so not bad for the mo. I fear this will last for a very long time. Longer than expected.

    I'm still working for now but i think i'll be blowing the dust off the PS4. Trouble is i'm absolutely crap at every game i play. I just don't have the attention span to stick to one game and actually learn how to play it. Streaming a lot more tv shows at the minute but that loses it's appeal when the warmer weather gets here. My missus keeps talking about using the time to do gardening and decorating but i struggle to find an ounce of motivation to do that. The house doesn't really need decorating and the garden is tidy and looks alright as it is. Women just feel the need to change things just for the sake of it. I might just catch the virus and write to Alan Titmarsh with some sob story or other and see if he'll come and do the garden for me. Perhaps write to Nick Knowles and get some decorating done. I think that i've been watching too many DIY TV shows though.

    Ffs fon, my attention was drawn to the highlighted part of the post. I thought you were talking as yourself. I nearly threw my car keys in the bin when i thought you might be treating me. The roads are way busier today though although the industrial estate where i work is very quiet.With the new 6 month exemption on MOT's it might be another reason to stay off the road. I'm at work, car repairer who can't work from home but a sole trader and isolated from people i still have work to do for now. The garage next door to me have shut up shop, just spoke to him and he thinks it will all be over in a fortnight then the country will boom, there are some pretty naive people out there with no idea what we're facing. This guy and his partner have only just took over the place having worked there as mechanics for years and have no business experience. They'll regret closing so early and turning the work down that was booked in. He'll soon be getting a baptism of fire in how to run a business during a recession.

    Just had this posted on a local group. Just driven into work this morning. Shocked by the number of cars, vans and lorries on the roads. What do people not understand about NON essential travel???? Stay at home please!!!!!! I have been an eye surgeon for 30 years and never thought I’d need my non eye medical skills again but am now facing a refresher training on respiratory medicine and being drafted into the front line. If you don’t want to be treated by someone like me (I wouldn’t) then stay at home!!! Fon
