Re: Adjust weekly holidays by country?

You could really mess with people's heads by offsetting your week by a day? They all think it's Thursday, you insist it's Friday. No-one can argue with you, because you got stuck into the beers as soon as the sun was over the yard arm...

Re: Watcha listenin' to?

Re: Auto-logout

DuckDuckGo is reporting your IP address from where you ask it to, also DuckDuckGo is a worldwide concern with servers everywhere, up-to-date software and loads of budget. They use IP addresses to manage the distribution of load across their network, so it's important for them to get it right. Vengan...

Re: Auto-logout

Also, it's wrong to assume that all ISPs change IP addresses frequently. Mine gets changed roughly once per month, and it's IPv4 only. I don't "tether" to a mobile connection. Unless there's someone else out there who managed to hijack my account, I should be showing up as coming from one...

Re: Beer

If you like sweet things, try a fruit beer: Framboise is one I like - a raspberry beer, Kriek - a cherry beer, there are blueberry beers and all sorts out there. Give it a go - beer doesn't have to be bitter.

Terry Pratchett.

Until a couple of years ago, I had never read a Terry Pratchett book.
