Let's call it "District 9" and let only Prawny (and his sockies) post there, everyone else can only read - that would cut down tulip posted in General by good 90% :eyes
Only 9:30 and already it 24 degrees. I thought remember last month? Yes, lovely and cool. Don't know if any of you ski, but highly recommend it. Took me a number of weekends to get the confidence. Think it's safe to say I've got the skiing bug now.

A tutorial from the man himself.
Warning, probably not safe for most people's work place.
Lack of commitment I reckon.
I guess I'll spend this evening in the hotel courtyard with a few very cold beers.
Personally, I don't like pets. You feed them, they poop. So what? They need care and attention which takes me away from earning huge sums of cash, drinking beer and driving my sports car. Not to mention, you don't want some old dog howling just when you've got some old dog about to howl :wink
Does anyone have any recommendations for decent online share dealing sites ?
My contract expires soon, and given I've been looking for a new one for over a year with no success, I expect to be out of work for quite a while.

Is filling in bespoke timesheet systems to appease the Client. Enter your hours against a specific contract number, job code, TFS code or whatever.
It's fine if you have a job code, but if your work dries up, what do you put into the tool?
Seems to be the same pattern for me. Run out of work,...
Boy A and Girl B have been in a long term relationship and have a Baby Girl aged 3.
Girl B is besotted with Boy A but is very untrustworthy and a bit paranoid, consistently accusing Boy A of all sorts of transgressions.

So, what's the worst places you've contracted in?
For me, Sheffield and Birmingham, followed by Runcorn and a short termer at East Midlands Airport.....
I'm an idiot.
I stopped on my cycle home from work to pick up a geocache. It was called 'trick or treat'. Took me a bit of searching about to find the box, then, when I opened it, there were about 20 diddy containers inside, all with a rolled up bit of paper. Tweezers were provided. I...

For years we have been told that "socialist" Europe is "sclerotic" as opposed to the dynamic Anglo-Saxon economies.
Yet the latest Newsweek(an American mag) tells us how much better Europe (not UK) is emerging from the recession.
And its a fact that Germany is a bigger exporter than the US (which...
