Just thought I'd get in and say it sometime before April, glad I beat the rush. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and new year!

Don’t you hate it when you’re a bottle deep in to a Southern comfort binge and all you can think to say is “I love you guys?”

Clearly the subtext here is that i’m Undoubtedly drunk but my perspective has matured, right?

Comparative investenent strategies anyone? Willing to fight you!

A vault with novelty board games that look really interesting but really really aren't and millions of mislabelled VHS tapes, all mislabelled and mostly early 80's Russian cooking shows. The interesting ones all lose sound and or tracking at vital plot points.  There's a Betamax labeled "GECK location and instructions" but no Betamax player, so starts a quest for a video repair shop.

Unwashed Village / Re: Best Premade Character for Fallout?

Not to be overly picky but Narg was a Fallout 2 character.

I tend to go with creating my own character.

I've tried to play the evil character but I just end up being wracked with guilt.

There have been many but the real life altering, defining moments of my life have been when I've became a father, you realise from that point on life is about being equal to the amazing privilege and responsibility in your life, falling short of that can be soul crushing.

If we had a leader we'd have forgotten who it was already, well within five minutes of deciding  who said leader was.

Family, work and life generally tends to make the bungee cord excessively slack but it does still exert a bit of a pull; we get a good number of old members popping in every so often but there isn't really enough activity to keep people here. The UV is on my list of sites I check every few days but I can go weeks.

We have plans to saw ourselves away then fill the hole with oil so we can have a proper frying pit. We're going to need a tonnes of flour and millions of eggs for the batter.

Unwashed Village / Re: What games have you been playing latly?

Fallout 3! I'm playing with a couple of mods to add weather, a little more vegetation and a mod to remove the green tinge, I added the mods mid way through playing and they've made the whole game seem a lot better.  I see there's a mod to add original Fallout weapons in, that's my next stop.

It also helps that I'm playing on a machine way more powerful than my old Core 2 Duo and 8800GT combo, for as good as that machine was it wasn't quite up for ultra with visual enhancements.

Did you mean to post that in this thread?

My biggest issue is with HR departments that don't actually understand what the job entails so they write terrible job specs and the managers reviewing the CV's get a whole load of applicants that don't actually meet their criteria.  The thing that compounds this is clueless recruitment consultants, I get this one on two sides; consultants email me with clients who don't fit job roles I would have a hand in filling and they also still email me personally with offers that seem like they've kind of skimmed my CV and matched some of the words to the job specs.

It's pretty rare for the people in large organisations who would actually be managing an individual to manage the advertising and direct communication with agencies.

I had pretty much the worst birthday of my life,  our little dog had cancer, we've seen how horrible the treatment is so we were taking care of him until he started to refuse his food, cry at night and most heartbreakingly became very snappy with the children over Last week. Saturday was the last day we had all together for a while where we could give him a good day so he got chicken, beef, ice cream and a day at the beach before we took him to the vet at sunset, this is just before 4pm in Scotland just now, I held him as he went and we looked at the sunset. The only good thing is that I know I was there to help him with a dignified passing.

We have an office move today so I'm back in Glasgow properly for the first time in ten years, this is one of my favourite places in the world, so many happy childhood memories from when my aunt was here and I spent an awesome but bitter sweet year living here.

One of the worst was the time I spent working in PC world; the guy they promoted above me to run customer services was an abusive ass who always had me doing the most menial task. Working there was not a happy time to the point where I wished I'd stayed in the low prestige minimum wage Maplin job I held for a week before going back to PC world. Today I walked in to that Maplin and who asked if I need help but mr abusive ass, I found it a little hard to rise above and since he didn't recognise me I didn't make a thing of it but it's nice to see how far I've came by working hard.

Trump might be a couple of wrongfully committed patients short of an insane asylum but he does kind of have a point; in context it's patent nonsense he's killed his campaign by his words and deeds but your choice of news outlet can be a an echo chamber where it's easy to propagate certain ideas and norms, trump supporters are surely a case in point.

I think it's incredibly difficult to rig an election, sway one sure but the level of complicity in rigging an election would be immense.  We have a postal voting system here that's ripe for exploitation; the number of postal votes recorded for some areas during our independence referendum for example seemed suspiciously high for some areas but I'd fall short of saying it was rigged.
