    Nah they had a red screen with some wording on it, a weird blank white screen, the red screen again, then the programme started and ran without any sound for about 3 minutes. Then the sound started and they went to the red screen again before the programme kicked in.

    The announcer kept apologising.

    It's only Panorama from Northern Ireland....

      Wasting dosh. Bought copy of Paint.net on Microsoft store, not realising it was online and not a a download. Then couldn't use it 'cos I signed in with old details which are different to the user ID on my PC. Seems I have to register my device, didn't say that when I brought it! Then today on my shop I brought a copy of Viz and realised when I got home that I'd already read it! Wasted a whole £9.59 today! About to kill myself!

        Amusing enough in its way.

        And not Bond so even better.


        Now on Blaze: "Why does everyone hate the English" with that Al Murray chap.

            Mythic Beasts? I moved one of my domains over to them (email hosting only at the moment) and it all went extremely smoothly, so you should be OK
            Yes, Mythic Beasts. All my domains have been moved over and they've been very patient with my numpty questions while I figured out how to move everything. I set up a basic wordpress site for myCo's website and was pleased by the ease of config and speed of loading so decided to take the plunge with my brother's band site that I set up back when there was some optimism about the world returning to some normality.


              Early entertainment: Seinfeld S2E6, The Statue (TV Episode 1991) - IMDb. Entertaining enough; I don't watch the show that often as it can start to grate a little after a while, but I'll get through it eventually

                  Watched UC. HWMBO and I managed about 5 questions.


                    Whilst eating, and after as eating didn't take that long, I watched this thing on iPlayer about a conwoman: Catch Her if You Can.

                    And then I had a bit more TV-free time

                    Goodnight all
