    Project Binky

    Excellent! Is anyone following the Retropower Mk1 Escort build for Gordon Murray on YouTube? Not anywhere near kind of bonkers fabrication that the BOM are guys are performing on Binky, but still impressive, nonetheless.

    Where does everybody live these days?

    Wow... C|sco !!! Nice to see you're still around - I've often wondered where you were and how you were getting on.

    Where does everybody live these days?

    Thanks guys. I had a feeling I wasn't recalling correctly. Of course, now it's going to annoy me, wondering who it was in the back of my mind. Whomever it was, they were often hilariously outspoken - and frequently reprimanded for it. I really do miss the old at0mic and the host of unique characters that used to inhabit it...

    Where does everybody live these days?

    So far, only three of us are from outside of Oz - and at least one is an ex-pat Aussie. As for me, I'm very much a minority here these days, being in NZ. Hey, those few who can remember 15-16 years ago, wasn't Wormstrangler a Kiwi? (I have a feeling that might not be correct. I'm afraid my poor elderly mind is somewhat hazy when it comes to vital information like that...)

    I quit Facebook

    You would make a terrible politician...
  6. If it helps, Chris, there's at least one person thinking of you over on this side of the Tasman... me (for what it's worth). Focus on breathing - at the end of the day, everything else is just noise :o)

    Wow... That was not what I was expecting to read :o( I was looking forward to catching up with a name from the past in here and instead get hit with the news that he's gone. 'Condolences' doesn't really cover it, but what else do you say?

    Already on it, like white on rice.

    After 17 years, it's time to look back...

    Are you sure we want to go there? Kathleen and her tie caused a bit of a mess in General Chat back in the day :o)

    Roll Call!

    +1 (very...) I find it hard to grasp that there are probably new members here that weren't even born when I first joined!

    Paying for photobucket

    Ditto. And not only that, but I was also totally unable to upload for about two years prior to this. I have no objections to paying for a service - as long as the service is actually provided (reliably) and the costs are reasonable. In this instance, Photobucket have failed on both counts in a spectacularly miserable fashion...

    Well, that's wonderful

    Walking is overrated anyway, Chris, trust me :o) At least your cognitive function isn't wobbly...

    Project Binky

    The pair of them should cease and desist all else so that I don't have to wait so long for my next Binky fix...

    I've just noticed seeing that term recently; is there some difference between 'quadriplegic' and 'tetraplegic', or has the terminology just changed for 'reasons'? (spellcheck apparently prefers 'quad' too ;) Force of habit... "Tetraplegic" (& tetraplegia, etc.), is simply a newer/different terminology that's been around for about 20 years - but it's been really slow gaining traction out in the world. Essentially, it's felt that quadriplegic is considered too definitive. I'm honestly not sure if it's a medically instigated term or merely motivated by political correctness :o) When you say 'quadriplegic', most people immediately envisage someone who can't move their arms and legs, but in reality it covers more than that. My spinal cord is severed at the juncture of C6/7, meaning I still have partial use of my arms, whereas someone with an injury at C4 would have no use of their arms and be on a ventilator as well, and yet we are all 'quads'. People meeting me for the first time always think I am a paraplegic and are stunned to learn that I'm actually a so-called "quadriplegic"... As for the Gabapentin, it was prescribed to try and keep my muscle spasms under control (which it doesn't), and any additional pain relief it might afford is merely a bonus. What I dislike about it is the instant withdrawals if you forget to take it; forget them at dinner time and I'm in for a bad night of extreme restlessness and no sleep :o(
