Sat here facing a huge pile of unco-operative test equipment. Waiting for someone to come fix the computer, of course I'd rather be out there.

The man has just been and sorted the problem, however it now has decided to load 30+ updates, our company doesn't download direct, but everything goes via IT to check it's virus free and compatible with our systems, so we get a monthly download of stuff and it just happens that this system from one of our subsiduaries has missed several updates during it's transport here.

 Don't I love being paid to sit here and wait.... I suppose there is always the internet to look at while I'm waiting...

 8 left to install then a restart...

Nowt to do with this thread,but some info regarding BC.

He was cracking jokes like that long before he made it big as they say. When he did the folk circuit with Gerry Rafferty as the Humblebums, the Old Scotia bar in Glasgow was the place to go. Happy days. 

I met him at the Jolly Shephards Hotel, in the Ayrshire village of Barr. There was a brilliant monthly folk night there and my claim to fame of being on the same stage as him. The stage was two sheets of 8x4 Chipboard on upturned wood beer crates !:naughty: What Elf and safety then !

He is without doubt one of the finest, if not the finest six string banjo players in the world.
