He was great  as Keith.  Sad to hear.

Annoyed to hear this. Great character. Checked him in imdb while back and he didn't seem to do a pile else
(The black guy is in eastenders ATM but I digress)

Edit - maybe eczema was a weakness after all

The staff  appraisal bit with Gervais was brilliant. He was in little  Britain and Miranda  ,  and   he did voiceover work too.

There  was reports of him  being looked after   in a care home.  Looks like it was  more complicated than ezcema.

Quote from: Eire90 on February 20, 2024, 11:57:20 PMso sinn fein want to overturn the referendum results  if  it goes against them so sinn fein are just political gangsters if vote goes against them they will say say sorry got to rerun it


yet people will bend over for these authoritarians especally in the north


one would have to question why are sinn so concerned about this referendum that would try and ignore the peoples choice

The government  ignored the people's choice  in both the Nice and Lisbon treaties .

Quote from: marty34 on February 20, 2024, 08:11:56 PMSouthern by-pass for Enniskillen given the green light by O'Dowd.  A good news day all-round today.

This should help the town centre in Enniskillen plus benefit the link up to Sligo.

All roads, if you pardon the pun, points to an All-Ireland agenda. Logistically getting ready for it.

Good to see.

I'd imagine Unionists  lately  feel like they are  being cast adrift from their mothership,  and slowly being  absorbed by osmosis into a United Ireland .

Albeit a mothership who has  screwed them over time and time again . Although , they'll still  be blindly loyal to a  land who  is clearly trying to get  rid of them.

Time for  the DUP to talk about  the bridge to Scotland again

Quote from: AustinPowers on February 18, 2024, 09:52:16 PMDo you need to  backup your photos before doing an iPhone update?

Will photos , podcasts or apps be lost  after updating?

It's been so long  since I did an update, I can't remember

Depends how long since your last update? If you're jumping up major releases of iOS then I would say yes.

Is it not all backed up to iCloud account anyway? If not, pay for any additional non-free space required, backup and update. You can remove the iCloud storage after but unless you've a massive photo/video library it's so cheap why bother.

People really need to keep devices up to date. The amount of security patches you are potentially missing would be a concern.


I don't use iCloud.  The iPhone says I've used 3 GB on the cloud , but I e no idea how that happened , as I just use the phone memory  to store  photos/videos.

I remember  once moving photos  to my laptop a via windows explorer . So was hoping to do that again , but the windows explorer won't  recognise the iPhone when connected.

Any  way to sort this?

The Irish government  forming a united Ireland  by stealth as the   Brits  wipe their hands  of the north?

That's how it feels to me anyway , going by  the pantomime over the  last few years.

What is going on  with the  new official GAA Website?  It is beyond woeful.

Looking for results is like  looking for a  needle  in a haystack.

The fixtures/results section  was so easy to  navigate before.  But this new  site  is truly awful

Band of brothers , I thought was very overrated. First couple episodes very good , after that  it was  all a bit meh. Although war films aren't really my normal  viewing.

The Unforgettable Fire
With or Without You
Even better than the real thing

I really struggled to name three . I used to be a big U2 fan  and have a  few of their albums , but I  haven't listened to any in  over 20 years. My music  tastes  have changed , and I've  come to the conclusion that U2 really aren't  that great.

Time for another?

Blame The Wobbler for this one. It  was his idea  ;D

Let's have  your top three.......
