10% gonna take about four hours I reckon.
I believe these low level formats are now known as the PF or Pedophile Format.

Just consumed some fresh pineapple.
I had to stop as it has stripped the skin off the inside of my mouth.

Soak fresh pineapple slices in salty water for awhile. It will be the sweetest you've ever tasted. Counter-intuitive, yes.

Was just getting used to the onset of Autumn, with morning temperatures of around 11C.

Have just let the cat in and the thermometer was 22C, and rising, at 6am!

The weather guessers say we will suffer for it later with thunderstorms.

Morning peeps another sunny start but to the west dont look to bonny,it's always from the west.
Low level format experiment failed,puter crashed after four hours, about 75 % complete would only allow to start all over again, ah well, disk is ok so just did a common or garden quick format like a bloody puter virgin.
All in the name of science of course.
Further development in the being Heir Hunted thing,forms filled in allowing them to act on the Draper clan behalf,no money changing hands, they take twenty percent of the recovered loot as a commision but what the hell tiz found money
This is the company and please no begging letters.

late reply, but
I notice the Mecca crane collapse thread was closed, possibly due to bickering.

Anyhoo, it is being reported that the executives of the company that owned the crane are under investigation and have been relieved of their passports.

The company concerned? Bin Laden!
It's bin well and truly unladen now.

Morning peeps dull here looks like it has been raining,for some strange reason I have been waking up half a hour later than had become my normal habit for this last week or so usually (if i am still asleep) I woke up either a couple of minutes before or after seven oclock,now it's seven thirty, most puzzling.

My now-departed mother-in-law would adjust her clock by ten minutes each day whenever the clocks went forward or back.
She said it was less of a shock to her system.

Apparently you can now get a case of drug-resistant gonorrhoea in Leeds.
Makes a change from Fosters I suppose.
