30 odd minute mix - another down-tempo effort but different content to recent, similar, efforts - maybe skip the first 60 seconds though...

erm... I get paid when on holiday and when sick. I don't need health insurance because we have the NHS. How many days holiday do you get to take each year? I get a quite meagre 25 days plus 8 days of public holidays

Generally I can take holiday whenever I want. I just don't get paid smile

I can't decide whether that is better or not... smile

How true is that? $1,800 a month!!

Per person?? I'd doubt that. If it is it just points to the fact that the insurance companies are screwing the employer and the employer is screwing the employee. United States of Clusterfuck.


Apologies..I should have explained better. That number includes coverage for my family. I'm lucky to have some of the better health insurance in the country (BCBS) offered as part of my total wage package through my union. Health/welfare, pension, wage, etc.are negotiated through collective bargaining generally. I've been in for some 18 years now and and honestly have no problem with it. Only downfall is if I don't work I don't get paid and in turn don't pay into my health and welfare.

That is still astonishing!
With regards not being paid if you don't work, surely you paid when you are off sick? What about holidays? How many days do you get?

Agreed, "For What You Dream Of" is the best thing he's ever done.

To put this into context (and so John doesn't get too upset wink), I would put "For What You Dream Of" in my top 3 "House" records of all time, so it would be almost impossible to better that! smile

Do you often find things worse on the second listen? What an odd thing to say.

Why is it an odd thing to say? Have you never heard the expression before Grant? I'm certainly not the first to use it. And yes, sometimes I do have a different opinion on a second listen, and I doubt I'm alone in that either.

I'm having a second listen now, if anything I'm enjoying it more.
I have no idea what any of the tracks are called, as I'm playing it through my Android tv (via a Yamaha amp and some floor standing speakers, obviously!) and vlc player on the tv doesn't display any time info. It's quite a good way to listen, as that's all I'm doing, listening, rather than thinking "which track is this?". smile

15 minutes in and loving it so far

Thanks dude, hope you enjoy smile

Definitely enjoyed it mate, some great tracks. I particulary liked the John Carpenter-esqe last track smile

His more modern stuff might not be up to par, but his 70s and early 80s stuff deserves credit and recognition. A legend as far as I'm concerned.

I've still got 7 on my own laptop (it's pretty old), 10 is pretty similar. The first major update has already happened, it's completely stable. The only issue I had was with wireless (it's pretty well documented), but once I'd turned off location services, it was spot on.

I've got it on my work laptop and I've swapped the HDD for an SSD. It boots in about 3 seconds, and is miles better than Windows 8.

As for (sport) streaming sites - yeah, when there's content on it that you want then KODI is pretty good.  For pretty much ALL European footy then live9.net provides a perfectly watchable stream (I have it streaming at 3pm most Saturday afternoons direct onto a 48 inch smart tv and it whilst it's not HD it's not that much worse than ITV's picture to be fair)

If you have Phoenix installed go to Valhalla> Live TV > Live games. All the live Premiership kick-offs in 720p, no ads, highlights at half time.

it's on the Reykjavik GU
Global Communication - 14:31 is the track it's used over

Did anybody see that Storyville film about trying to swindle the HMRC out of millions by pretending to make a British film. Quite amusing really.

I recorded that but haven't got round to watching it yet.
