The Kia Cee'd lap times for Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car seem to be a bit faster than the previous cars they've used.

Today at work an email was sent by error to thousands of people (I work in a large company). As a result, for over two hours we kept getting hundreds of replies-to-all saying:

- remove me from the distribution list
- you sent this to the wrong person
- please stop replying to all
- pictures of cats, jokes and wise words from some funny guys
- a few guys telling half the company to take a course on email etiquette, another one repeating his advice using bigger and bigger fonts...

It's little things like that that make me lose all hope in the future of humanity...

Scorpion has a great suit, but the nose is weird... although i guess culturally appropriate.

And why is Sub-Zero wearing a swat-suit?

Midnight. Feeling all so very alone drunk. Haven't seen my wife and child in a week. They are 400 kilometres away from me. Smiling wryly. Listening to some great but pretty melancholy music to match my mood., About to break down. Bitter and empty. Will head to the local bar and drink some more.

Back to work after a week of laziness and four days of gaming and TV watching with Ethtric, kicking back and doing nothing sensible can be healthy once in a while. ;)

But you said you were renting it? So why are you doing the refurbishing?

I will, likely for many years. From five to "infinitum".

Did you ever heard term specific market? That's what is in Czech republic.

This one was however given by my wife employer, with better conditions.

I see - so it's a kind of "rent until you don't want to any longer" situation? We don't have that, I think ... and it would be a bit daft to refurbish everything and make the flat worth a lot more, only to be "thrown out" when the owner wants to.

Yes, just for employees as a bonus or reward after some years in job. Here it's too very rare.

Let Greece and Cyprus fall. It's for the common good, believe me.
Or perhaps we wish to end up with this? The state called Europa.
United States of Europe. "One People, One Empire, One Leader".

Is such a future so hard to imagine?

I have been a good boy today; painted the door to the storage room (outdoors) and finished the post box stand - which I replaced some planks on and painted yesterday. :proud:
