That means it's EXTRA mental! :tongue2:

chinahorse 24-07-2018 10:14 PM

Lol. I must be very mental then as I always need a cuppa!

chinahorse 25-07-2018 08:13 AM

Morning all :)

It's definitely not a good one though. My bus died so had to wait for the next one. And now I will probably be late. :/

Buttons. 25-07-2018 08:22 AM

Morning to all. Lillie it's not your fault the bus died so your work is just going to have to man up and deal with it.

I'm not doing so great but I have my dog, and a roof over my head so can't really complain. Although am one day short of getting a Take a break magazine (for the puzzles, ignore the ridiculous stories) so when I go to supermarket today can't get next issue *sobs hysterically*.

chinahorse 25-07-2018 08:29 AM

True. But like annoying. Could have had an extra hour in bed for how late I'm going to be.

Oh no. That is a tragedy!! Would another similar not suffice? Or even a ground breaking new arrival of a puzzle book?!

chinahorse 25-07-2018 08:38 AM

Am also in danger of eating all my lunch.

Buttons. 25-07-2018 09:44 AM

Wish you'd had the extra sleep!

I may consider a different puzzle book but oh the betrayel :P

Charlie051 25-07-2018 09:56 AM

Puzzle books are amazing though :laugh: <3
Morning lovelies x
I hope you got to work alright Lillie

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 10:58 AM

Morning guys

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 01:23 PM

That's great jellycat!

Charlie051 25-07-2018 01:39 PM

Hey jellycat and beckie :D

That's great news about your brother! I hope you have a good time, it's lovely that youve found him.
I like those colouring books too, i have a few of them.and do the same sort of thing on phone apps too. I love things like that and puzzles :D
What jigsaw app do you use? I've got a good one on my.phone atm, i think it's called magic puzzles

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 01:47 PM

I've been thinking about getting some jigsaws

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 02:04 PM

I didn't even know puzzle apps were a thing!

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 02:34 PM

Just keep messing around with it
That's what I did!
Sure you'll get it eventually!

This is meant to gif but doesn't unless you click on it!
NP help please!!

I think you've linked it as a thumbnail instead of the full image... or not because it's an attachment rather than linked. Hm..!

The original pic was too big anyway so I made it smaller and uploaded it to imgbb and it seems to work for me now. Still seems pretty huge though.

nonperson 25-07-2018 03:01 PM

Hm, very strange. It works for me.

I'm all out of suggestions now, sorry. =/

one_step_closer 25-07-2018 03:25 PM

Is the image still in your image bb account NP or did you delete it?

I started advanced higher computing at school but I actually now have no idea about computer type things. I think I mostly had no idea back at school either.

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 03:33 PM

Computer stuff has changed so much since I was at school. It's hard to keep up with it all!
I would have considered myself as good with computers when I was younger but then they went and changed it all!

one_step_closer 25-07-2018 03:38 PM

Computers are taking over.

That reminds me of a story I wrote in primary school which I think was about a computer telling someone their house was haunted and they had to run away or something. At that point the only computer I'd ever seen was the BBC ones in school. My teacher wrote 'would you do what a computer told you to?'

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 03:39 PM

They are!

You predicted the future Lindsay!

one_step_closer 25-07-2018 03:41 PM

I better consult my school jotters to see if I have predicted anything else or what could be coming up in the near future.

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 03:43 PM

I came up with a idea for power banks and USB ports in cars many years before those things came out.
Should have patented it. I'd be rich!!!

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 04:17 PM

I don't think I know what DOS is!

Charlie051 25-07-2018 05:14 PM

Silly question np, but I'm assuming your file ends eith .gif? Am trying to find hiw to do it xx

nonperson 25-07-2018 05:17 PM

I also remember DOS. Had a PC with DOS on it before Windows. It had some great games. =P

nonperson 25-07-2018 05:18 PM

Er, yeah it is a .gif and is still in my imgbb account. I didn't delete it so no idea why it's not working.

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 05:31 PM

Whats DOS?

chinahorse 25-07-2018 05:54 PM

I have no clue beckie!

Evening all :)

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 05:57 PM

Hey Lillie
How are you?

chinahorse 25-07-2018 06:01 PM

Hot and sweaty! And I've lost the ball on my rainbow industrial bar and am sad :-(

How's you?

nonperson 25-07-2018 06:08 PM

This is DOS. Operating system before Windows.

Windows used to use it for some things... but I think it's all gone now.

Had to navigate around by typing commands! No mouse. =)

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 06:10 PM

Also hot and sweaty!
Oh no! It's so annoying when things like that happen :(

I don't think I ever used DOS then!

nonperson 25-07-2018 06:17 PM

I liked Dos =)

It was simple! I probably only saw it just before Windows came about. Just remember cd, run, dir, dir/p... which looks like nonsense now. o.o

nonperson 25-07-2018 06:22 PM

I need to go food shopping *cry*

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 06:25 PM

Food shopping is effort

nonperson 25-07-2018 06:27 PM

I know. I hardly have any food in the house at all though so desperate times call for desperate measures (eg. going out!).

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 06:32 PM

Got to be done unfortunately!

Aubergine 25-07-2018 06:53 PM


Cacoethes 25-07-2018 07:04 PM

Hey Aubergine
How are you?

one_step_closer 25-07-2018 07:12 PM

NP, please get me some tasty snacks while you're out.

Hi Aubergine. *sends love*

chinahorse 25-07-2018 07:33 PM

I feel you np. Just been food shopping myself. Had to get a taxi home cos too tired to walk. Get me the squash I forgot?!

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 07:50 PM

So annoying when you forget stuff.
I have a whiteboard stuck to my fridge where i write stuff I need. It helps

zombiehunter 25-07-2018 07:57 PM

we all went to TGI Fridays tonight.

I had boneless hot wings for my starter and JD ribs with onion rings and ****ing chips as my main :-D

one_step_closer 25-07-2018 08:00 PM

Zombie you are always eating tasty food. Do you ever have anything plain?!

zombiehunter 25-07-2018 08:01 PM

I had ready salted crisps once

I think

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 08:01 PM

That sounds epic zombie!

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 08:54 PM

I do an online shop sometimes but still need to go to asda most days. Its the only time I get out really!
*is sad*
Asda has been mental this week!

chinahorse 25-07-2018 09:05 PM

Aww Beckie :-( any luck with volunteering?

Cacoethes 25-07-2018 09:09 PM

Nope not so far
Shall keep trying though!
Can't wait for college to start again

not_so_insig 25-07-2018 09:16 PM

I always do online shopping as I can't carry heavy shopping far and tesco is the far side of town. Also I get ided if I go to a physical store if I buy alcohol whereas I don't if I get it delivered.
