Message 87284 - Posted: 24 Jul 2018, 23:03:44 UTC - in response to Message 87278.  

All catering is done by gender neutral bots.
Unlike the Oxford pub I left about 40 minutes ago. At 22:50, a bot visited our table to say 'last orders: bar closes in 10 minutes'. I didn't need another, but had a recent refill in front of me. By 23:10, the story was 'Please leave the pub now - we're closing', and by 23:15 it was 'You're the last one in here -off you go'. Meanwhile another member of staff was smiling and saying 'don't worry, take your time'.

WTF happened to drinking up time? My less confident BOINC workshoppers left at the first warning, so I was left to track down the night bus by myself.

Maybe I should have held back on the anecdotes about the early days of computing? :-)

You can never be sure when information might be really useful to someone, or when it probably wasn't, but I thought, what with people holidaying and stuff - exploring new environments and all that that might mean, that this might prove very helpful indeed.

Thanks... are not necessary... ;)

edit: I'm not convinced I put enough that's in that, but I have decided to ignore myself, so I am.

It is Monday evening and this is our last chance to wake up Jord before he goes on his 2 wk vacation. We all should look forward to tomorrow's outage unless it become an outrage.

I did a crash course on it within days of arriving. Except that last one... No one ever told me that one. Perhaps you have to be born here...

edit: Have a lovely holiday, Jord :)

Did you obey the office rules and post the appropriate notice on the back of your chair.

The furthest anyone's blown a marshmallow out of their nostril and into the mouth of a catcher is 5.46m. That's 17' 11" for those who prefer the imperial.

I've got marshmallows somewhere.

I've got paint too but you seem to have done that already ;)
