Oh I can see that case mod working well:

Sceptic: "Don't be ridiculous. As if you can get USB working with that heap of junk."

iPad Modder: "I was going to use switches and a microcontroller inside the typewriter to interface it to USB."

Sceptic: "Who said anything about the typewriter?! I was talking about the iPad!"

:lol:

Ahh gotcha now.. :)

That was a nice bath I just had, thought I'd pass on some handy tips for bathtimes... :)

Handy energy saving tips for bathtime... :)

When it time for your annual bath here are few canny tips to help save on those energy bills...
(Please note you need an old cast iron bath of the type with 4 legs for this to work, don't try this with a plastic or fiberglass bath)

Step 1: Gather all your dirty laundry together and any dirty dishes & crockery you may have...
Step 2: Go out into the woods at the back of your house and gather up a nice sackfull of squirrels...
Step 3: Fill the bath with the desired amount of water to comfortably submerge yourself in...
Step 4: Rub two squirrels vigorously together until one or both ignite...
Step 5: Place them directly under the bath until the water reaches the required temperature...
              (you may have throw on a couple of extra squirrels at this point)
Step 6: Strip of and enter the bath giving yourself a good scrub all over, taking care to wash of all the crusty bits...
Step 7: After about 10 minutes exit the bath and dry thoroughly (remember to do behind your ears)...
Step 8: Now throw all your dirty laundry into the bath and stir gently until clean...
Step 9: Remove the laundry and wring out all the water until items are no longer saturated...
Step 10: Now place all your dirty pots & pans & crockery in the bath and clean thoroughly...

And there you have it everything all nice & clean with an approximate energy saving of around 98p on your energy bills.
Any left over or squirrels that are not too burnt can also be used to make a nice curry or freeze them for later use... :)

(IMPORTANT NOTE: Remember to carry out the above instructions in the correct order, or you could end up with bit's of food in places that are hard to remove them from. If this happens seek medical advice immediately...)

Ahh... so it's basically a fruit pie cobbled together by those who can't cook... :)

Good job it isn't British or it would give the term "cobblers" here a whole new meaning... :)

(PS: I can't work out your new avatar !!! 5 pints whats it mean ???)

Cobbler is a dish in both the United States and the United Kingdom, it is a dessert consisting of a fruit filling poured into a large baking dish and covered with a rolled pastry dough, then baked in an oven.


..unless the article is wrong.

As for my avatar, it's just an old thing I put together back when I was posting on Lemon64.com.  Five pints has no significance, today I drank 9 pints of Guinness and a mystery cocktail put together by my friend the pretty bartender lady.

There actually is a Cobblers pie, albiet a brand name, not a type of pie.

As for the bath, Im more of a shower man. There's just something wrong about wallowing in your own filth. Also, last time I used the bath I accidently left the taps on full for about 3 or so hours and only noticed when the carpet around my bedroom doorway started getting darker. Flooded the absolute smeg out of the rest of my house though. Was 3 or 4 inches deep throughout 2/3rds of it. I live in flats too, so my neighbors place ended up with water too.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.
