YouTube ads ...

... are really getting me down. Now they've started to advertise in the middle of a video (even in the middle of a word). GRRR. :x

Is there a way to avoid them? I know I can use an adblocker, but which one would you recommend?

I'm using Firefox 69.0.1 (i.e. the latest version). Thanks :)

To boldly glow where no lamp has glowed before. ;) Thanks, Tawm! :)

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

So ... what are those things on the left? And the thing screwed into the lamp base? I'm still confused.

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Um, it's a lamp of some sort, I guess? :? Is that the Enterprise on the right? I'm confused.

Re: Dark Castle.

Oh dear. :lol: I like the very strange sound effects. "Squeak! Squeak!" Bats. "Ooh!" Guy with whip. :lol:

Then again, it was 1986. ;) I remember playing "Dr J vs. Larry Bird" on the Commodore 64 back then. :lol:

Re: Tim Curry

Is Tim Curry playing IT, then? ;)

By the way - there's still the matter of the tiny flesh-coloured bit, just about the t-shirt. ;) Sory - I did live theatre for years, so those bits stick out like a sore thumb for me. :)

Not surprised, no. I'd be more surprised if you hated it. ;)

Re: Describe the least-appealing game

An RPG with lots and lots of "hunt-the-pixel" mini-games that you must complete in order to construct some long-lost key or some nonsense, which (again) you need in order to proceed into some area or other. Because someone in your party wants you to.

Oh, wait.

Re: I got a new job!

Thanks, BBP. :) Woo-hoo! :D Got a call from an agent earlier today - he checked out my resume on Seek and thought I'd be ideal for his client. He talked to me on the phone and he's happy to send me across to his client, but I'll also come in and meet him later tonight. Got off the phone with him abo...

Re: I got a new job!

Thanks, Bob. :| At least with contracts you get sick pay and holiday pay (generally). My situation was a casual, which is even worse - just filling in for someone who was sick. As soon as they got better ... there's the door, mister. Basically they kick you in the pants and then wonder why you don't...

How cool is this?

I just heard about Cat Cafe Melbourne , in the heart of the CBD (Central Business District) of my town. Nice! :) It's a space where the humans save rescue cats and give them a warm space to live and share with other humans. I might check it out the next time I'm in the CBD. Some more info about them...
