In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Marine Offences Act 1967, which silenced all but one pirate station: Radio Caroline, now on:
- Radio Caroline
- Radio Caroline Flashback
- All Radio Caroline DAB+ channels
- Manx Radio
- BBC Radio Essex

Live from the Ross Revenge. A one hour Ray Clark program tracing Caroline's history and looking forward to what the future holds.

Here's the Ross: https://www.google.com/maps/@51.7346992,0.8575,160m/data=!3m1!1e3

Nice idea, wrong music choice.

Firefox updated to 55.0.2 and disabled almost all my add-ons, calling them Legacy.
Only a handful are featured and now updated. If you have an add-on like Autoplay No More, don't think that changing it over to Disable HTML5 Autoplay will do good... I found it blocks all videos, but leaves their sound continue: a cacophony of sounds!

Finally, a much needed Firefox add-on (or extension) that will make all of you native English speakers type English: https://www.grammarly.com/
It'll put an end to your misspelled apostrophes or lack thereof!

We're all going to die!!1!!11! but not due to Florence, a large near-Earth asteroid that passes by on September 1st, Nasa says. So if they're wrong, and you survive, you know whom to sue. :)

He or she will be introduced after 19:00 UTC. That depends on the time that we're going to give out some official BOINC news.

Why don't you record it? BOINC news is more important than some overpaid pricks trying to kick each other into prolonged handicaps.

It's a funny old world. Everyone derives pleasure from their own individual pursuits. Me, I enjoy a good game of football, cricket & rugby, much better than arguing over the name of a computer. Come to think of it, I'm thinking of renaming mine Annie_3 :-)

Which is on the way, but going slow. I may have to wait until tomorrow, which for me is in 40 minutes. ;-)
