This is the thread for general chat.

Tell us how your day was, say hello or just introduce yourself if you're new to the site.







...and as this is Great Britain we like to talk about the weather :)

Hi DL,
You've mentioned similar 'vanishing' posts before - it looks like when posts are deleted (normally spam etc.) not everything updates - I guess that's just how the forum s/w works.

For me that's ok, as I can guess what has happened :¬)

Disingenuous is still listed has having made the last post about 5 days ago ... that post never appeared!

Whoever 'cleared' it, can you not clear it from the Forum listings, as nobody actually read it!

Talking of age, I've gone from 2nd youngest in the office to being at least 3rd oldest. I'm old enough to be the dad of 2 of them.


Don't fret dav ... 3 of us in the Yard are referred to as Dad's Army and we're all old enough to be their grandparents! However, we always turn up for work ... think about it ;¬)

Well done on taking that scary step and on getting a new job. Hope it works out well for you.

Gout gone again but now found out I have Colitus as well. This getting older lark isn't great, is it?


Certainly was scary - too long in the same job and had got too comfortable, regular uncertainty aside.

Did you trade in gout for colitus?

Certainly isn't pb ... I tend to ignore it, but some days, it reminds you :¬D

Hello pb, DL and anyone lurking,

It has been a while, as you may have noticed. Since we last spoke I survived a redundancy and then saved the person that was being made redundant by resigning from my position. What a hero I am. There was a lot of employment uncertainly hanging over me at the start of the year and I decided it was time to do something about that and try to secure a long term future - 21 years of programming in dead or irrelevant languages doesn't open many doors. But against the odds, I did manage to get myself a web developer role. It is a bit of a pay cut and a 60 mile round trip each day but finances aside, it makes so much sense in every other way.

Hope the gout has settled down pb and hope the knees are getting a break DL.

Hi dav ... afraid that the knees are getting 'hammered'. The Yard has become mega busy and the demand for my assistance has grown accordingly. It all helps financially of course, but with a second granddaughter now, sometimes I do need a break. On another note, recently discovered that I will receive my first Winter Fuel Payment this November :¬)

Using the forum less and less, which saddens me.

Anyway, hi to anyone who happens to be reading this. Maybe Freeola should have a Facebook group...



Er, we don't really want to go too far with Facebook. It seems at illogical but there are tons more visitors here than we are likely to achieve on Facebook. Though of course we accept that this format is way out of date.
