Request from an Englishman for a Scottish Couple
Posted by Henry 8 years ago
My pal and his wife from Scotland are visiting Florida in late July 2009 until  
begining of August.  
 
This may seem like a strange request to those of you who live there already  
Like FD, but what would you recommend for them to do, that is non touristy,  
but not to missed?  
 
I will edit the final list, so no wind up's (some chance) but seriously  
if you have any idea's I can pass them on to them before they fly.
calling LinkFiltererers
Posted by Henry 9 years ago
Hank is after a little assistance from American Linkfilterers.  
His friend is visiting the US of A in July and intends to hire a car  
to get around in your vast country.  
He already has a GPS sat nav (UK version) of a Becker Traffic Assist 9734.  
What he needs is the USA map for the same? or is only other option  
is to hire a car with a sat nav included, which will cost more dollars.  
 
Can anyone assist with a USA Map?
Eurovision Song Contest
Posted by Henry 9 years ago
I was asked in chatter "what" the Eurovision Song Contest was?  
I explain in my view what it was supposed to be and what it actually was.  
I also explained that this year, the media hailed the all new  
voting system designed to stop block voting and corrupt voting  
by certain countries or blocks of countries.  
 
So lets look at the results, Great Britain came 5th. A great result considering  
last years last position.  
 
Who won? Norway. A very good song, yes it was. Was the singer born in Norway?  
no he was born in Belarus ( former soviet block) Did he go out for a slap  
up meal with the judges from eastern block countries just before the contest?  
Yes he did!  
 
So the new voting system worked then? and will I be watching the Eurovision next year? You decide in comments.....  
 
Dear Linkfilterers

Face Book and Space Wars!  
 
As it was the linkfilter chatter bunch that got me into FB in the first place  
(foop is excused). I now call on you who have still a SW commander to target  
the following big fish who I crossed swords with! I have put her on the bounty list for a tidy sum, if anyone is still playing the game. some of her comments on my sw wall are as follows:  
"Bet you wish you'd not torpedoed me, attacked my pet and wasted $2,500,000,000 on bountying me hehe Oh yeah...and there's nobody even close to my strength on your server"  
"One other thing...FB remove profiles with a fake name...happy hunting!"  
 
her profile is http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=554301539  
 
name = Sandra Morton  
 
sw name = Killashandra-Ree, level 150  
 
So if you have any spare munitions and you are feeling like a lemming, throw a few shots her way and eventually, she may be taken out, before someone throws me off FB!  
 
Cheers Henry

Henry> saladus ab infinitum  
crataegus> the big kind you make in the oven and serve by the slice  
crataegus> that schazzy still won't eat.  
LowFlyingMule> His oil and His Vinegar, they do comfort me  
AB> lol  
* * * Henry wasn't thinking tossing salad AB, he was thinking tossing pancakes, or is that just a UK thing?  
Schauspieler> you don't toss pancakes, you flip them  
LowFlyingMule> hmm...a misunderstanding, perhaps  
AB> mmmmyes  
Henry> it was just a UK thing then  
LowFlyingMule> yeah..'tossing pancakes' sounds like it would involve a lot of effort  
Henry> what would you say the difference is between tossing and flipping?  
* * * crataegus has a coffee  
crataegus> and magically, the headache starts to leave.  
Henry> in a culenory sense  
* * * Henry can't spell either  
LowFlyingMule> flipping = turning over once  
LowFlyingMule> tossing = mixing lumpy or loose ingredients  
AB> toss is more "being tossed up, flying through the air, then finally landing with a splat". flip = "turning over"  
AB> What the ASS! said  
!! eschexnayder is around.  
Schauspieler> what they said  
AB> what the penguin said  
LowFlyingMule> great...somebody went gangster at MArdi Gras, 5 people shot...one of 'em a baby  
AB> :(  
Schauspieler> it's like you call fries chips, and you call chips crisps  
Henry> do you have pancake races?  
crataegus> and cookies biscuits  
Schauspieler> you call cookies biscuts, and you call biscuts scones  
AB> "Last year's cancellation, amidst a tangle of red tape, drew international attention from as far afield as Brazil and the USA."  
AB> what.  
AB> It's a friggin pannycake race  
* * * Henry cleans out the buscuits in his browser cache regularly  
AB> Silly brit-tons  
Henry> someone should invent a FB pannycake race  
Schauspieler> and don't even get me started on calling almost all desserts pudding  
Henry> I would not dream of it  
LowFlyingMule> and for Gods sake change the name of 'spotted dick' to something else now...nobody's gonna eat it until you do  
Henry> what club do your pregnant females join?  
LowFlyingMule> 'spotted pudding' perhaps  
crataegus> thank gusano rojo for coffee  
Henry> there is nothing wrong with a good spotted dick Mule  
Schauspieler> and drinking warm lager, and wicked googlies, and those phoney accents, and tea time.....  
crataegus> they join the planned parenthood club  
LowFlyingMule> the 'get your barefoot ass in the kitchen and cook me a pie" club  
LowFlyingMule> whoa, i like the accents now  
!! Aphexian is around.  
Henry> the worlds arguments have been solved by British democracy and a good cup of tea  
Schauspieler> and the Eastenders? what's up with that??  
Henry> except for one little misunderstanding about taxes  
Schauspieler> Oh yes, lets not forget about the Empire, how's that doing these days? are the Fauklin Islands nice this time of year?  
Henry> Eastenders - Babs Winsor 4 astart!  
AB> asstart?  
!! crataegus's journal has been updated.  
AB> Ass Tart!  
Henry> A Start...  
AB> I know  
AB> ;P  
shigpit> Cherry-flavored AssTarts™ new from BISCO®  
AB> Thank you, shig  
Henry> is flavored = flavoured? ( I english I don't quite understand) anyone for a cup of char? ;-)  
Schauspieler> Sorry Henry, my Limey-bashing tends to go on....It's all in good fun  
crataegus> That's another one. Why do you spell it 'char' when it's 'cha'? You can't even borrow Chinese words correctly.  
pdxpogo> chai-wallah is what I do  
Schauspieler> AND QUIT PUTTING U's IN WORDS THEY DON'T BELONG IN!  
Henry> I've been here long enough to know that schazzy  
AB> Schaspieler  
AB> lol, crat  
crataegus> these people are bastards  
Henry> pdx is a tea boy?  
!! aardvocate is around.

AB> ahhhh! getitoff getitoff!  
Schauspieler> oh wait? are crumpets suppost to have legs?  
* * * Schauspieler walks away  
pdxpogo> that was crumpit not strumpit  
AB> lol  
Henry> what's wrong with crumpet AB?  
AB> It ... It just injected me with its eggs! AAAUUGHHH  
* * * AB 's belleh burts open, loosing hundreds of baby crumpets onto chatter's floor  
AB> ..and today's lunch.

For Link Filter Doctor Who Fans
Posted by Henry 9 years ago
The new Doctor Matt Smith, and a lot of folk said who? (not a joke).  
 
Well for Fuzzy Dave and those who can get stuff on teh torrents.  
 
BBC2 channel Monday 9 Feb 2009 at 9PM  
 
Moses Jones  
 
A cop drama about a black police detective inspector sent to  
look into a crime committed by Ugandan immergrants. His boss  
puts him on the job as his parents are Ugandan, and although  
he has lived in the UK all his life his boss thinks he can best  
relate to the suspects.  
 
His junior partener in the police is played by Matt Smith.  
 
So thus you can see the new Doctor acting, (not in the part of the doctor)  
but it should give you an insight into his acting.  
 
Just thought I'd mention it.

Even Japanese Banks feel the credit crunch!!
Posted by Henry 9 years ago
Following the problems in the financial sector in the US, uncertainty  
has now hit Japan. In the last 7 days the Origami Bank has folded, the  
Sumo Bank has gone belly up and the Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut  
some of its branches. Yesterday, it was announced that the Karaoke Bank  
is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today's shares in  
the Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived. While Samurai  
Bank is soldiering on following sharp cuts, the Ninja Bank is reported  
to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black. Furthermore, 500  
staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is  
something fishy going on at the Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff  
may get a raw deal.

adc explained to the chatter how he just randomly chose adc as his linkfilter name  
from the initials on a passing van at that time. He then asked members of chatter what they think he should be called. After many suggestions (not all accurate, but taken in good fun) he settled for Henry as for some reason known only to chatter they think my chatter style relates me to a former king of England with 8 wifes.  
 
From 1 July 2008 I shall be known as Henry, or whatever else you wish to call me when I'm not around!

"Dear Dogs and Cats,  
 
The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food.  
The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note,  
placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does *not*  
stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find it  
aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.  
 
The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack.  
Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me does *not*  
help -- I fall faster than you can run.  
 
I cannot buy anything bigger than a king-sized bed. I am very sorry  
about this. However, do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch  
to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball  
when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each  
other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that  
sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other  
end to maximise space is nothing but sarcasm.  
 
For the last time, there is *not* a secret exit from the bathroom.  
If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door  
shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the  
knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door  
open. I must exit through the same door I entered.  
Also, I have been using the bathroom for years --  
canine or feline attendance is not required.  
 
The proper order is kiss me, THEN go smell the other  
dog or cat's butt. I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!  
 
To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following  
message on our front door:  
 
To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit  
and Like to Complain About Our Pets:  
1. They live here. You don't.  
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the  
furniture.  
(That's why they call it "fur"niture.)  
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.  
4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter  
who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't't speak  
clearly.  
 
Remember...  
Dogs and Cats are better than kids because they:  
1. Eat less  
2. Don't ask for money all the time  
3 Are easier to train  
4. Normally come when called  
5. Never ask to drive the car  
6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends  
7. Don't smoke or drink  
8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions  
9. Don't want to wear your clothes  
10. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college,  
and...  
 
11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children

redneck joke
Posted by Henry 10 years ago
'Hello, is this the Sheriff's Office?'  
 
'Yes. What can I do for you?'  
 
'I'm calling to report 'bout my neighbor Virgil  
Smith...He's hidin' marijuana inside his firewood! Don't quite know how he  
gets it inside them logs, but he's hidin' it there..'  
 
'Thank you very much for the call, sir.'  
 
The next day, twelve Sheriff's Deputies descend on  
Virgil's house. They search the shed where the firewood is kept.  
 
Using axes, they bust open every piece of wood, but find no marijuana.  
 
They sneer at Virgil and leave.  
 
Shortly, the phone rings at Virgil's house.  
 
'Hey, Virgil! This here's Floyd....Did the Sheriff  
come?'  
 
'Yeah!'  
 
'Did they chop your firewood?'  
 
'Yep!'  
 
'Happy Birthday, buddy!'  
 
(Rednecks know how to get it done).

I'm looking at trading some tv shows with bear.  
before I can go onto the pear to pear file sharing with him  
I want to be confident I've got the hand of all this.  
 
I took a UK tv show 1 hour long about 2 gig in size and I've  
used divx and got same down to circa 250meg so far so good.  
 
What I would like to know from some kind soul is if I  
download a divx file of same size how do I convert it  
to video ts and back on a dvd-r or rw so as I can view  
from the comfort of my sofa via my dvd recorder?

Result:  
 
New England 14-17 New York  
__________________________________  
 
For the first time in the 88-year history of America's National Football League, its championship game will be televised live on the BBC.  
_________________________________________  
 
Not really knowing a great deal about American Football, adc chatted with  
Fuzzy Dave and got the gist of the game, the teams, the favourites to win  
and a few little porkies about the trophy just for a laugh.  
 
He tuned in at 10:50 UK time and whilst the opening preamble was on he watched  
interactive guide for UK folk who didn't know by the Miami dolphines about how the game was played. Thowing the ball, catching the ball, blocking etc etc..  
 
He watched the first 15 mins in the first hour of coverage. He thought to himself,  
hey I thought fuzzyD said the patriots were fav, the big fellows seem to be doing well, then 3 points for the drop goal! wow. Then, not knowing enough about the game he could not quite understand how the patriots got 7 points just before the end of the quarter.  
 
He then watched the second quarter, listened to the pundits talking it all through etc.  
 
He then watched Tom Petty doing his Jesus of Nazereth lookalike I'm a big famous rock star bit on his heart shaped stage, and to be fair thought that was quite good.  
 
By which time it was 1am in the morning UK time and adc needed to sleep. Thus he  
went to bed and didn't see the rest of the game. Highlights are on Monday from 1300 GMT, so I should be able to play catch up in a hour.  
 
Thanks to all for their info on the game, who knows I may even watch it next year.

VW for Fluffy
Posted by Henry 10 years ago
I was thinking about your car problems VW wise. You said the car was 55 plate May is that right May 2005?  
 
If so what about the VW warranty?  
 
http://www.vw.com/myvw/warranty/en/us/  
 
even if you are out of warranty write to VW direct (not the dealer) and express  
your displeasure at things going wrong so soon out of warranty.  
 
The reason I say this is a friend of mine had same sort of thing and car maker offered 50% of the repair bill if he used an authorised dealer for the repair.  
 
Worth a try may be?

Jabawokee ding dong slip slap slee

Flim flam wham blam Sam bam Cunningham whack snack koochie koochie koo  
Plus you gotta dip, you gotta doodle, you gotta eat Grandma's stroodle  
'Cause she stayed up all night to make it from scratch  
You gotta gish, you gotta gash, you gotta wax Grandma's mustache  
And lay out here socks and make sure they match  
Whoa, you gotta help out your Gram  
 
Slappety dappety sling skism skasm bing bang boo  
A yip, a yap, a snippety snap walla, walla scrappy dappy doo  
Piddle paddle fiddle faddle widdle waddle awhee clunkety clang  
A plop, a fizz, a whackety whiz, chitty chitty bang wang lang

Plus you gotta dip, you gotta doodle, you gotta shave Grandma's poodle  
'Cause Grandma would do the same for you  
You gotta libby, you gotta labby, you gotta hug Grandma even though she's flabby  
'Cause you should know Grandmas are people too  
Whoa, you gotta love your Gram  
 
Now if you listened to the words of this song  
You know they're coming straight from the heart  
Never make fun of your Grandma  
Even when she rips a juicy fart  
 
And remember to dip, you gotta doodle  
You gotta stop playing with your noodle  
'Cause Grandma said it will make you go blind  
You gotta gipper, you gotta giper, you gotta change Grandma's diaper  
And then pretend that you really didn't mind  
Whoa, respect to the Grandma

I was watching the News today here in the UK, a lot of the coverage  
was about it being a big day in Iowa, which kind of confused me.  
However, the questions I really would like the answers to is:  
 
Why do the Reps (GOPs) have an Elephant as a mascot?  
 
Why do the Dems have a kicking Donkey?  
 
Do you always call your local meetings a "caucus" or is that just a  
political thing?
Is my memory failing?

I seem to remember seeing a posting on linkfilter, possibly some time  
ago, about gaining administrative rights to an xp system when you don't  
have the admin password. I've trawled through my bookmarks, but can't  
seem to find it. Was it here I saw this, or elsewhere? If it was here  
could some kind soul clue up adc and point him to the post, very christmas spirited of you.

Thanks for dropping the worn-out avatar.  
 
If I ask nicely, will you stop all the whinging, too?  
 
Thanks."  
 
Then just get the lips back.

'For The Fallen'  
 
With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,  
England mourns for her dead across the sea.  
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,  
Fallen in the cause of the free.  
 
Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal  
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.  
There is a music in the midst of desolation  
And a glory that shines upon our tears.  
 
They went with songs to the battle, they were young,  
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.  
They were staunch to the end against odds uncountered:  
They fell with their faces to the foe.  
 
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:  
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.  
At the going down of the sun and in the morning  
We will remember them.  
 
They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;  
They sit no more at familiar tables at home;  
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;  
They sleep beyond England's foam.  
 
But where our desires are and our hopes profound,  
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,  
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known  
As the stars are known to the Night;  
 
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,  
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;  
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,  
To the end, to the end they remain.  
 
-- Laurence Binyon

Yep, I guess you could call lf a 'global forum', but membership is primarily US based. Posting news stories which affect the 3 block radius around where they certainly does influence voting patterns."

When I click on the site stats icon on any posted link it doesn't seem to display  
the images anymore. Is this a temporary LF glitch?
You were lucky
Posted by Henry 10 years ago
Four well-dressed men sitting together at a vacation resort. "Farewell to Thee" being played in the background on Hawaiian guitar.  
 
Michael Palin: Ahh.. Very passable, this, very passable.  
 
Graham Chapman: Nothing like a good glass of Chateau de Chassilier wine, ay Gessiah?  
 
Terry Gilliam: You're right there Obediah.  
 
Eric Idle: Who'd a thought thirty years ago we'd all be sittin' here drinking Chateau de Chassilier wine?  
 
MP: Aye. In them days, we'd a' been glad to have the price of a cup o' tea.  
 
GC: A cup ' COLD tea.  
 
EI: Without milk or sugar.  
 
TG: OR tea!  
 
MP: In a filthy, cracked cup.  
 
EI: We never used to have a cup. We used to have to drink out of a rolled up newspaper.  
 
GC: The best WE could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth.  
 
TG: But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor.  
 
MP: Aye. BECAUSE we were poor. My old Dad used to say to me, "Money doesn't buy you happiness."  
 
EI: 'E was right. I was happier then and I had NOTHIN'. We used to live in this tiiiny old house, with greaaaaat big holes in the roof.  
 
GC: House? You were lucky to have a HOUSE! We used to live in one room, all hundred and twenty-six of us, no furniture. Half the floor was missing; we were all huddled together in one corner for fear of FALLING!  
 
TG: You were lucky to have a ROOM! *We* used to have to live in a corridor!  
 
MP: Ohhhh we used to DREAM of livin' in a corridor! Woulda' been a palace to us. We used to live in an old water tank on a rubbish tip. We got woken up every morning by having a load of rotting fish dumped all over us! House!? Hmph.  
 
EI: Well when I say "house" it was only a hole in the ground covered by a piece of tarpaulin, but it was a house to US.  
 
GC: We were evicted from *our* hole in the ground; we had to go and live in a lake!  
 
TG: You were lucky to have a LAKE! There were a hundred and sixty of us living in a small shoebox in the middle of the road.  
 
MP: Cardboard box?  
 
TG: Aye.  
 
MP: You were lucky. We lived for three months in a brown paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six o'clock in the morning, clean the bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down mill for fourteen hours a day week in-week out. When we got home, out Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt!  
 
GC: Luxury. We used to have to get out of the lake at three o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of hot gravel, go to work at the mill every day for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would beat us around the head and neck with a broken bottle, if we were LUCKY!  
 
TG: Well we had it tough. We used to have to get up out of the shoebox at twelve o'clock at night, and LICK the road clean with our tongues. We had half a handful of freezing cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at the mill for fourpence every six years, and when we got home, our Dad would slice us in two with a bread knife.  
 
EI: Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad would kill us, and dance about on our graves singing "Hallelujah."  
 
MP: But you try and tell the young people today that... and they won't believe ya'.  
 
ALL: Nope, nope..
