    Fixed my site after letting a domain expire a while ago. Wordpress is a ballache.

    I bought one of these when I was 18, about 37 years ago... My wife believes she has it in one of the drawers in her desk and that it still works.

    Back when I got my FX-7000g, I had more money than sense, and bought one of these at the same time - my excuse: I wanted the 'programming capacity' of the latter AND the screen size of the former.

    logged onto runescape for the first time in 9 years... surprised I remembered my password

    I wasted so much time on the game but it took me back to a simpler time, coming home from school to get straight back on to my friends and playing into the night.

    the amount of time invested in this account was ridiculous... 99 mage come at me!

    Wish you could sell these things!

    When I was a teenager, one of my friends had a ZX81 and we played Pong!

    I've saved £76 just by using bike and train three times.

    That's nuts. I may one day own a bike that's paid for itself.

    Yeah, my bike paid for itself within a year - it cost £500, I use it every day to commute and it saves me £50+ a month for a bus pass.

    Finally made through to my first on-site interview since getting my work permit at the end of December (bar my retail job).

    This made me laugh out loud, super awesome!
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-48445430 Boris is being prosecuted for misconduct in public office because his use of the lies about the amount of money the UK pays to the EU, during the referendum campaign. Hopefully this is the end of his hopes to be PM.

    Unfortunately, it'll probably enhance it.

    And iirc it's more about the misuse/misrepresentation of government statistics than 'politician lies, water wet'. He misrepresented the figures, was told not to do it again, but kept doing it.

    Do you bench mark a benchmarking system?

    So, sports bag I was modifying to make it a cycling kit/raceday bag.
    Was speaking to a friend who thought it was a great idea, (despite there being various forms on the market). They persuaded me to take it to a club event last night and almost everyone was genuinely positive giving me their thoughts an possible changes, all easy to do.
    Couple even wanted to know if they could buy one. Erm, dafuq?!?!

    I've been building an automated system that will bench whatever is requested then spit out the data into easy to read files at the end. So in this case yes.

    Did you benchmark your benchmarks on a known benchmarking system, so your benchmarks, when testing your benchmarking system, produce reliable benchmarks which can be compared with existing benchmarks in a useful way, such that your benchmarking is valuable benchmarking that can be used to validate your benchmarking and validate future benchmarking on your benchmarking system?

    ONR is one of my favourite car-cleaning products.

    God that stuff is brilliant.
