Because I am old.. but can still remember/ I was remembering the old dial up internet from about 12 or 13 years ago. Tied up the phone... and the noises . screech... . haha. So much better these days, but while playing games on the internet, no one could ring and interrupt the game . :cool:Anyone else remember that?
Pretty sure if someone rang it disconnected the Internet.
I'd do the old *10# or whatever it was to find out the last missed number, then give them hell for interrupting my net session.

That would make us grumpy now.....
It made me Grumpy then. My mate was in the City on super fast speeds for the time and I was in the bush on a 28kps Modem. Two or three 1mb files and your email was locked for 4/5 hours

So what?

Email 20 years ago was the Social Media of the day...

..,now it’s gone the same way as my physical mail box.... full of junk mail!

yesterday i had a visit from a couple of old friends,


so i promptly got up on the roof and got rid of the egg and stood guard with plastic rake in hand for about half an hour, bloody mongrels were persistent, once it looked like they had flown the coup i got down and got on with a few things i had in progress. then about an hour later they were circling again and landing on the roof, so i got up for another 20 mins or so with the trusty rake, they seem to have gotten the message now, no more khaaa khaaa khaaa khaaa noises today.

The brilliant Gasometer owl will do the trick.

It just took me 30 minutes to find this thread. I thought we had either done our block and cleared off, or got so old and grumpy we not here anymore .Hmm.
Once upon a time it would have taken you 30 minutes to view it.

Running out of stuff

The last squirts out of a can of Fly Spray and you got 3 Dunny Budgies to kill

The last tin of Woof food

The last garbage bag

All those things you think you have plenty of but don’t restock up on and the nek minits you have none left

pardon my ignorance Gaso, but whats a dunny budgie ?

is it that bad in your Dunny that you have a Canary as a safety warning ?
