Looking for some older RAM

Yesterday, 02:54 PM

Yeah, I know, I should post in Trade but no one seems to go there anymore.


It's not for me but a mate is looking for a couple of 4GB DDR2 sticks, happy to pay, anyone have any ?



Hartford - it was just a matter of time

That place scared the hell out of me, and I was only there an hour or so, refueling - I was flying an aircraft that had a Geiger on board, ticked like crazy...



Go Pigs!

It being me I suppose you think I'm about to heap praise on the A-10, but no, more a case of revenge of the pork :)




I probably should not laugh but the irony makes it impossible not to :)





Happy Easter!

 Since no one else seems to have mentioned it :)


Weirdest religious holiday of all in my view, today we eat buns emblazoned with a cross and eschew a good steak for over-priced fish, tomorrow is sort of back to normal then Sunday we risk diabetes on masses of chocolate, Monday we try to recover. :)


We'll take part in some of it but there won't be much chocolate, not a huge fan. :)

I've been having physio the last couple of weeks, did make a bit of a mess of my legs with the crash-dive under the SUV to rescue the kid, not something someone my age should really be doing but at least the government gave me five free physio sessions.


I've had three so far and the guy seems more intent upon testing than treating, that and giving me exercises that are things I've done for years. However last week he added one to my regime that I struggled with for three days but by Sunday I had to give it up it was giving me so much lower back pain that I was close to tears and I'm no stranger to pain.


Saw my doc on Monday, he took one look at me and handed me a script for Tramadol. I don't like pain-killers at all and especially one as strong as that but it has helped, just need to be careful, I'm not going through another withdrawal, morphine years ago was quite enough for one lifetime...


So I was pretty relieved in the session today when he suggested some hydro, week after next for my own reasons.


It should help or at least I get a couple of free swims :)


I'm a little amused though that in trying to deal with one issue that is well on the mend he's gone and created another :)


Anyone else have to do physio ?


It's been a lot of years since I had any, my body tends to self-heal but it is not getting any younger...
