  1. Afternoon all.


    Well what has made me happy, well:


    - Passed my Microsoft Server 2012 R2 exam first try.

    - Had a great game of airsoft the weekend just gone.

    - Busy every night this week with something fun.

    - Work is mostly going well with lots to progress.

    - Found a place to get my favourite adult 'filth'.

    - John Wick Chapter 2 was great fun to watch.


    And that is about it for now, that and waiting on the HK45 Tactical and seeing how that WE Colt Cub .25 goes.

  2. Well in the last week I have managed to:


    - Get the full deposit back on my previous flat which I never thought would happen.

    - Borrow the company car for the whole weekend to finalise my move.

    - Not break anything at all moving into the new flat.

    - Worry about my job security then find out I am doing 'outstandingly' and aside from the usual room to grow am putting in lots of effort.

    - Found out I will indeed get a raise that is above the average expected.


    Huh, so if only the last bit of the '*fruitcage* this week is going to be hell' goes well and I can tell two friends they need to become ex-friends as I have had enough of their *suitcase* and we are all sound! :P


    Oh and it is Fringe in Edinburgh now, so comedy, stuff being crazy and my favourtie time of the year abound! Plus got the following week off for it, oh yeah.

  3. Yup, more 1911s is always the way and one day I will run all of them for the sake of it ;).


    Still it reminds me that I regret selling my PX4 and need to get a 5-7 but ah well, also want a 4.3 Hi-Capa too.



  4. Speaking from experience, I did work with people that had what the council term 'mild disabilities' as in enough for benefits but not enough to need 24hr or specialist care and they called each other a retard all the time.


    Suppose it is a bit like the N word, used all the time but only between people that it is meant to offend is it deemed 'ok'.



  5. Black Books was brilliant, also that reminds me went to see Dylan Moran here in Edinburgh a few months back and he is hilarious, plus didn't realise he lives in Edinburgh now? :P


    Quoting BB is a bit difficult though as it is not that common a comedy for people to have seen, though moments like 'naughty passport hiding in the crisps again' and 'we said we wouldn't talk about Canada' are just perfect.


    Also random edit but I just decided to click on a Redwolf review as it was related to a product I am looking to buy and ho-boy does it make me laugh so hard at all the *suitcase* they come out with:


    - This gun is inferior as it has a plastic slide (comparing a Hi-Capa between a WE and TM, because we all know how well those WE ones last).

    - 280fps in a pistol 'is not a lot', well maybe because one FPS is not the main factor and two because the pistol has a 3 inch barrel so that is to my mind 'reasonable'.

    - The slide feels 'sluggish' on Green Gas and 'fine' on CO2. Having fired the same gun I feel that CO2 was about to crack it and Green was spot on, and it is warmer in HK than the UK.


    Ah how much they spill, I don't know if this is because they have to sell certain products or if they are genuinely that stupid or if the HK market is really that different but seriously?! :D



  6. Well, no not quite, but indeed it did start as a prison colony and then moved on.


    Though I do agree on only two things about UK prisons, one they should be used as a workforce like the US ones and two a prison should be a prison not a holiday camp and not a replacement for the poor sods that have nowhere else to go due to a combination of Tory Government / bankers / people voting Brexit / unnecessary conflict / other stuff (delete as applicable).



  7. Personally I am still in favour of the 'dump prisoners on an island' option, then they can fight and *fruitcage* amongst each other etc and just drop enough food for 75% to start then 75% of what is left, then 50% of what is left, then keep going as mor batches get added and 'removed'.


    That or use them for checking for hostile explosives in another country we shouldn't be at in the first place, given the choice I would rather a convicted moron than a family man of two kids and a wife goes bang.


    Failing that find Britains 'worst' city or one that is in need of repair, or has a natural moat or such around it, block it off bar one entrance way and put prisoners there.


    That way prison is a deterent, however in making these changes e would also have to change the legal system too and ensure that every single person is given the same fair treatment too, so this is a last resort and if it is needed, then the person has gone past the point of attempted re-integration.


    Ah well,



  8. Party Pad? Might it happen again?


    As for me well I am glad that the new Doom exists, because games are too serious now, all thinking they are great and 'realistic' while still trying to entertain and blah blah, pish and ballderdash.


    But yes I like having a stunning looking game where I have to get from A to B by running, killing all the things and listening to heavy metal, who doesn't want that?

  9. Ok so in the last week I have learned that at least half the UK airsoft shops are a poor excuse for a business.


    I have had one not reply to my emails, one that hasn't got a proper stock update, one that tells me an item is in when it isn't and finally one that is just over-priced and ignores my emails.


    So much for me finding magazines for the gun I am after, but ah well, made me learn to just strike said shops of my list of places to buy ever again :D.

  10. Got's me a new pistol, this makes me happy, got it for a great price, this makes me happy, fits me well, this makes me happy, it is a working version of one of my favourite modern designs, this makes me very happy.


    Now to just find mags for it, anyone got a gas (not CO2) magazine for the KJ / ASG CZ P-09 lying around they can sell me?

  11. DarkLite's post reminds me of a day when a certain retailer was praised and considered highest in the UK while another was considered trash and awful.


    They are less than 50 miles away from each other. Flash forward to now and I have seen the scales switch, one bcoming better, the other clearly much worse.


    Well I get discount from one of them and they are cheaper overall so might just stick with them then, so much for a good business staying good. Glad we have somewhat more options now ;).



  12. met a cute Hungarian girl which seems to turn out to become a great friend


    I was surprised but there are some very interesting Hungarian people out there, they always seem to be the more whacky and accepting of the people I know, though all the ones I know are my age so perhaps it is a 'being young and in Edinburgh' thing :P.


    As for my weekend, orgy, goodnight y' all.

  13. Do what I did and go spring.


    It runs on the power of water and a few light snacks in the morning, means I never forget my 'running power' either.


    Hell even gas is easier as most places sell a can of it, stupid batteries.


    Now to sell one last pistol, then I can cut out the need to buy Ultra and just have Green and 144a?!?! :D



  14. Waiting for that "package shipped" email from fire support, and have been since yesterday at 10am.


    Getting worried now as it was the last one they had in stock.


    What did you order from them?


    They have been a bit lazy on my last few orders but I suppose I could have ordered it for a £5 more elsewhere and got it a day earlier so it ain't so bad.


    Though it did take them until the fourth item that I asked on before they gave me a reason rather than just a sudden update to 'package sent'.



  15. As a teacher who qualified overseas and has, for the last eight *fruitcage* months, been trying to wrestle the Scottish General Teaching Council into actually doing their *fruitcage* jobs, I am somewhat jelly.


    However, tis great news, and much wishes of wellness and such. Top hole.


    Wait there is also a Scottish General Teaching Council? I support the Northern Ireland one and while the people seem nice enough it sounds like they have one of the worst red tape jobs ever, charge people to be on a system that makes no sense what so ever and is just a waste of time. If the Scottish equivalent is anything like it then I feel for you.


    And as this is the happy thread, knowing that I have had a party arranged for me in a few weeks time plus airsoft, naughty fun and seeing friends planned for each of the next for weekends? Damn straight I am happy.



  16. I have seen all of the things you have described but often they are old, derelict and bricked up buildings that those over the age of 40 point at and tell me what they are.


    I just assume that they are right, in the same way I have seen one of the few, near TARDIS old style police boxes still around as a show piece.


    I for one used to like going down the paths in Aberdeenshire that used to be train tracks, had lots of little old huts that were falling apart, one was filled with porn mags as one would expect of the days before reliable internet.
