It comes and well doesnt exactly go, depart, leave, buggeroff (the muse I refer to) but sometimes you cant put sparkle into every bloody episode! I know its a bit like an outline rather than a story sometimes, I do my best but you'd be surprised at what can take hours to get right. Tammy is my listener she's very good ... more

I tried the F8 to slow down the opening advice which said F10 for boot menu and offered the USB choice but selecting that did nothing - yes the USB was in place! I didnt know where to look for more instructions, tried the usual Computer and... more

    After 146 years, Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus will shut with a final performance in May 2017. I remember their circus trains personally as they would leave Boston and pass through on the B&A to Albany. I saw them a couple times, as well as their rival, the James Strates Shows. I guess this means Strates is... more

    Well I finally made it on here. I ended up buying a MacBook Pro on sale for the President's Day shopping holiday because I'm gonna need the extra processing power and RAM for AutoCAD anyway. I started reading the latest episode 53 but I am going to have to find time to read the past episodes for it to make any sense.

    TOAD episode 52 He was immensely proud of the way his men had welded themselves into a unit and indeed that was how both he and they referred unofficially to their Signals post, as The Unit, capitalised.
