    FIFA World Cup 2018

    Nobody talking about my team, I think we're the low key second favourites behind Brazil now, given all the teams that have crashed out.

    Mayweather vs McGregor

    Nah, he'll end up copping a plea, paying a nominal fine of restitution to the city and Conon vs Khabib will be booked before the end of 2018. Dana White will do anything to court publicity for his organisation.

    Chips, Cheese & Gravy - a Manx delicacy

    Not sure where you sent the request to but I have restored it now.

    limited reactions to posts

    There's a system limit of 50 per day for Regulars. It's always been there, I just think you're the first person who's ever reacted to more than 50 in a single day. Suspect you're an edge case, not going to change the limit.

    Not a conscious change on our part, there have been some software updates recently that make have introduced a default. I'll look into it.

    Winter watching

    Brilliant start to S4 of Black Mirror, they've really got a lot more budget these days but the writing is still great.

    Black-eyed Friday

    Worse than that, I even took a food break at teatime. Eating is cheating!

    Black-eyed Friday

    Was out from 4pm to 3am on Friday in various places and didn't see one bit of trouble anywhere.

    Not going to get into the whys and wherefores of anyone who's actually banned, but I can confirm that woolley and quilp are not banned. However, as I was checking I noticed something odd. I'm not sure what's going on with the "Last Visited" times on a number of accounts, not just theirs but they're both showing as last visited in April this year when clearly that's wrong. Picking out some old random posters seems to have some oddities too which I assume is related to the database work that was done a few weeks back. I dunno. Anyway, my point was to dispel the conspiracy around those two particular accounts. They've simply stopped posting.

    The blizzard of 17

    All schools are closed apparently. Ridiculous.
  12. You *might* be able to ghost it onto a new laptop but that's really not the smartest thing to do. You dont want to copy over a 10 year old OS install, even if it's gone through various in place upgrades to W10 etc. There will be so much crap and orphaned rubbish you want to start afresh and just reinstall programs and copy over any important data to them. Get your new laptop, connect it to your local network and just transfer over the files you need to keep. Or worst case, just grab a chunky USB drive and copy them manually. You might have to do some digging around for where some of your program data is, for example Minecraft used to store worlds in AppData if I remember right so not immediately obvious. Bit of trial and error required but it's the least technical and simplest way to do it.

    Registrations Enabled

    We did swap out the underlying database engine over last weekend. Is this something that's happened in the last day or so? Are they still gone? Sure you don't have a filter on them or something?

    Most of those rules apply to commercial construction. I don't think it's unreasonable for someone who works all week, maybe even on Saturday, to be allowed to do home improvement and DIY projects on a Sunday? They've waited until 10am to start so they probably already think they're being considerate to their neighbours. You're only affected badly because you're on a night shift work pattern. I'm not sure what your neighbour is supposed to do, I'm pretty sure he's going to get more complaints if he starts his work at 8pm on a Sunday to suit you. If it's been going on for MONTHS and you've not bothered to go round and talk to him after all that time, then that's more on you than them. Do that before you start to get all heavy handed with councils and bye laws.

    Facebook (and Twitter)

    I've tried Twitter a couple of times. Not tweeting myself, but following other people and I just don't "get it". It seems like something you have to be monitoring 24/7 to get any real value.
