The big night came and everything was going smoothly until across the whole club i heard a super loud MSN 'you have a message' ping... no wifi in those days, and laptop not plugged in. Realised that I had been recording the vinyl plus system sounds. There were a fair few MSN pings, system sounds over the next couple of hours. Lesson learned very quickly. BTW not one person mentioned it or seemed to notice. Not sure people would be so forgiving these days!

I'm not going to discuss this further but would just like to confirm what BF said above. Flares also stated that it's easy to brute-force attack dormant user id's provided you have no job, lots of time on your hands and the requisite criminal mindset.

I think Flares's best approach from a PR perspective would be to admit the truth, apologise, and make a statement to the effect that this has been a humbling but ultimately valuable experience from which he and Dogmanstar have both learned greatly.

That's assuming he really does want the whole thing to blow over. Sometimes you read these rambling stream-of-consciousness diatribes and can't help but wonder if this shit is what he lives for.

Can't believe Smashy took screen grabs. Is he not about fourty-odd? He thinks he's the Julian Assange of Bedrock.

One look at Arsenal's central midfield last night told you all you need to know about how that game was gonna go, Wilshere and Ramsey are great going forward but as Souness put it they've "one gear for going forward and another for going backward". And Arteta's just too old.

Thought the lad Marcelinho for the Bulgarian lot ran rings round the scousers.

however i'd defo be worried if I was a 'no' voter - polls have the 'yes' voters ahead

That means absolutely fuck all Sean. I promise you.

There probably has been a bit of a move towards the Yes. That was always going to be the case as the time drew near. It will help get the No votes off their arses.

are you aware of the rather long-standing love affair between the French & the Scots?

The best thing about leaving would be ultimately the Scottish economy would still be controlled by the bank of England and its currency will still be the pound. So inevitably they will be controlled by inflation set by the BOE too. They wont be taking into account Scotland's needs when setting it. That in itself would be disastrous.
Also even though they think they will be, Scotland as a fledgling state wont be part of the EU any more and would have to reapply which takes 5 years. Thus meaning all borders are closed for places like France, friends or not. On top of that leaving the EU would bring loss of -

Broad UK Economic Benefits
UK Business Benefits
Personal Benefits
Health & Social Benefits
Crime and justice
Environmental benefits

I think you mean the interest rate. But yeah, the whole currency thing is totally lol. The unionist parties say they won't let Scotland have the pound. It's anyone's guess how that stare-down would pan out. Don't confuse control of the money supply with control of the economy though. What Salmon really wants is control of tax and spending. But I do agree that it's not ideal having your money controlled by a foreign state, even if their economy is locked in synch with your own like England's and Scotland's.

I don't agree with your points about leaving the EU. That place is a fucking shambles which will drag the UK down with it given half the chance. That's why Cameron wants to get the fuck out (or at least really, properly threaten to leave, as a bargaining tactic, which is pretty much what Salmon is up to as well imo)

I'm not surprised the English are a bit miffed at the whole thing. We take their taxes, sit in their parliament and are only British when it suits us. Now their once-proud nation have to suffer the ignominy of watching powerlessly while a race of skirt-wearing ginger alcoholics mull over whether to dump them like a sack of shit.

I do like and admire the English, yes they were bad cunts in the past....but that's all forgotten now, of course.

The current arrangement is blatantly a fucking great deal for the Scots and that's why the No vote will comfortably prevail. We're too smart to vote Yes. Nationalism is inversely proportional to intelligence (as this thread demonstrates).

The Tories want the Scots to stay because all political entities are only as powerful as the size of the electorate they represent. Losing Scotland would shore up their vote, but at the ultimate price.

How are the economics fundamentally flawed Grant?

The IFS says so and I believe them.  Too much reliance on oil that is becoming increasingly more expensive to extract - the Scottish government, on the basis of solid oil revenues, are suggesting a budget deficit of 3.2% in 16/17, which is worse than the UK position and the IFS suggests it'll be between 5% & 6%.  It isn't looking very good.

I've just re-read some pdfs on the IFS site and I can't verify your figures - can you provide evidence for what you're saying?

I think they're saying "we think Scotland will perhaps be a little bit worse off because they've got more debt at the moment and their economy is less diversified but it all really depends on borrowing costs, population growth, oil revenue and tax/ spend decisions, oh and also on a whole load of other assumptions about figures we've tried to estimate before plugging them into our big excel spreadsheet."

Dermo, are you aware of the rather long-standing love affair between the French & the Scots?

It wouldn't make all that much difference if they voted Yes. Scots maybe be slightly worse off over long-term but impossible to say really. The biggest issue would be the ageing population imo.

I'm voting no. There's zero possibility of a Yes vote in reality, despite what the media says. Expect more of this sort of thing the closer we get to the vote.

often the reason that people run marathons is because they want to abscond from their prevalent reality and commune with their soul.

you can see it in what ed says about touching his minerals in the trenches.

It's the same thing with drugs and music really.

rest in peace Jimi...

and thanks for Baywatch.

Jason Manford is an absolute weapons-grade cunt

I think it's pretty obvious Man Utd will come good sooner or later. Too many good players to keep this run of failure going. Vidal would be a great buy but Blind will be good as well.

Right, don't laugh, but I heard this song the other night, can't remember what it's called, can't find it on t'internet, don't have much to go on so I'm turning to the board as my last resort

It's an old US deep/ vocal house/ garage classic from early to mid 90's, fairly deep-voiced male singer, think Danny Rampling used to play it, the lyric goes something like "when the love's not inside ...something something ..... For what you need" and then there's a repeated little synth line.

If anyone can offer any suggestions based on that (!) I'd be grateful and impressed. It's killing me.

My mate had one with no brake levers at all, you had to rotate the grip to apply the rear brake.

Mopeds in foreign countries are pretty hard to beat in terms of entertainment value imo. Especially when driven whilst under the influence in torrential rain.
