    And What Are You Listening To?

    i think a lot depends on what "everyone" is listening to as youre growing up. maybe you know who Roger Glover is, for instance. but i couldnt tell you the name of the lead singer of Deep Purple, even though i am sure in a certain age group "everyone" knows that. in the 80s i knew of Ozzy, coz...he is Ozzy, but i thought he was from a band that had faded into obscurity in the 70s lol. its weird who you do and dont know sometimes. at the time i knew who Lemmy was ffs without ever hearing any Motorhead. and he was much less of a big deal than Dio, probably in renown, and most certainly in vocal talent!

    i had no idea who Ronnie James Dio when he died, despite being a fan of various 80s/90s metal and earlier stuff like pre-Dio Black Sabbath kind of funny then to find out its Dio singing on this track which i loved as a very young kid. the ABC used it for years as a kind of space filler between programs i guess.

    btw, where are those bastards? my go...and they disappear okay, but the theme of the thread is a tad against the idea of google, no? so for a little while longer, if youre after another clue, youre getting zilch!

    Dear Desperate This is a very common problem. When you upgraded Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0, you may have accidentally restricted Husband 1.0's root access permissions. Tech Support.

    correct! Milli Vanilli a manufactured bullshit band, ie. in some respects 'the Monkees' of the eighties HAHA clues for 2 : early 90s. a solo artist — oops, should have mentioned that. there is a connection between "the Monkees" and the song

    re: page numbers on my monitor those 'stealthed' numbers are invisible to me at steep viewing angles when they are grey-on-grey, and marginally less invisible for grey-on-black. an insignificant useability issue for me personally, but it has meant because of the quirk i have of using the Snap Links FF extension to open links with casual mouse flicks, i keep opening the first page of threads by accident

    hmm, so i was idly searching around....and kinda sorta googled it. which is to say, i googled it. Pleasant Valley Sunday, The Monkees btw, not obvious to me! i know the band, i watched re-runs of their show as a kid, but never heard of that song. okay, using The Monkees as a cryptic clue in a very different way in each case, here's an easy and not so easy one: 1. GYKIT MV 2. M DTFH

    Best PC Games to use with a controller

    ooh, so many! ive been using an xbox360 controller on PC since forever. 2004 https://store.steampowered.com/app/281280/Mashed/ 2006 https://store.steampowered.com/app/2990/FlatOut_2/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/2500/Shadowgrounds/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micro_Machines_V4 2011 https://store.steampowered.com/app/48000/LIMBO/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/94200/Jamestown/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/22230/Rock_of_Ages/ 2012 https://store.steampowered.com/app/212480/Sonic__AllStars_Racing_Transformed_Collection/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/207040/Sine_Mora/ 2013 https://store.steampowered.com/app/243800/Gas_Guzzlers_Extreme/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/35720/Trine_2_Complete_Story/ 2015 https://store.steampowered.com/app/274190/Broforce/ 2016 https://store.steampowered.com/app/304430/INSIDE/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/325724/Dying_Light_The_Following/ and lots more i cant think of, some more famous as console games, and many other smaller PC games that work well with key controls re-mapped. i mention Dying Light: The Following because, although i am in the camp that there is no justification, ever , for playing an FPS with a console controller, switching to controller for driving the buggy around is perfect — that game is easily THE best fun i have ever had playing Co-op.

    Where did it go ?!

    hmm, just checked out the article. not unlike the one i saw but bigger. we were more or less directly under it on a clear night away from street lights. dont remember seeing any colour at all in the tail. but the same languid pace, definitely. never heard a thing about it from anyone else though :/ but then, it was pre-internet early 90s and quite possibly 3:00 am on a weeknight.

    Where did it go ?!

    talking with a friend on a cricket pitch one night, no one else around, when suddenly we stopped, mouths agape no doubt, transfixed by the sight of a meteor streaking across the sky low and slow. it burned for a ridiculous length of time, like around 10 seconds but it may have been half that — which is still crazy long. it was bright enough to illuminate its own fricken smoke trail across a good 20° arc of sky. and i cant shake the memory of hearing it, although that may have been an auditory hallucination created in the moment, but it was like the sound of a dull blow torch. once in a life time.
