everyone saying that the max. no. of entries is 10,000,- yet the last one is showing as 10,009......methinks someone has been had.
An earlier version of the softwear did limit a thread to 10,000 posts, though it does not any more does not matter as tradition of XXV TRABBs means that we stick to that figure.

Not 'cos we have to, because the regulars and the FSL want to.

Threads used to be limited to 100 posts, Danny pounced on em at 100 and snip! they were gone.
Summat to do with the server as was the later 10,000 limit

In December I received a book about knots.
Not proficient enough for shipboard work.
But I have started hanging up the green bottles; for the choir to sing about.

My deceased brother was, when he was a youth, a scout (Baden Powell type).
He 'made' a knot which was a complete sphere (on the end of a string 'tail').

He 'made' a knot which was a complete sphere (on the end of a string 'tail').
That's called a Monkey's Fist knot, like so ...


And a Turk's Head is like this ...


The Turk's Head is "hollow" and often used as woggles by scouts, and the Monkey's Fist is solid and was often used to add weight to a rope before throwing it.

Morning folks. Buck's Fizz served in all bars for breakfast to celebrate our first day aboard. This will continue for 24 hrs to cater for all time zones. Visiting other shipmates time zones is encouraged. :ok:

My father in the UK seems to have stopped his roller coaster ride. Me thinks he will not pick up again. But, as the consultant said, 'He's a tough old bugger'.

...did anyone remember Fluffy's cat food.

Hasn't he moved into LB #5 until Fluffy's done with the one in the chain locker?

Morning/Afternoon/Evening/Night all
(that should cover everyone).

I must say I'm quite pleased with my new cabin.
Hope everybody else is as happy with their accommodation.

Mine is similar, except the bed is on a rotating platform allowing it to be orientated using Feng Shui principles.

Lon More 25th Feb 2015 07:33

Morning all, the first of the next seven months voyage (about)

A beautiful, if breezy, morning. Very good vis for the morning and the Dark Continent clearly visible. This is very rare as it is usually an evening event.

Car serviced but has a problem with the Timing Chain, deferred, NSA.

All times are GMT. The time now is 22:11.
