Haha, which one was it?

Over the years I've accidentally nicked the folk-off in the middle of Skyclad's 'Thinking Allowed', various Savatage licks...oh, I re-wrote 'Knocking On Heaven's Door' once, too.

I have just eaten an off egg :(. I got one out of the fridge that said March 12th, and Assumed the others (that came from same pack would have same date on).
I cut up my soldiers and went to dunk and bleugh.
I have just checked the fridge and some appear to have dates of Feb (they were definitely from the same pack)

It was the chorus riff from the Prowler...is it plagerism if you don't realise you're ripping off someone?

I think so. It would be hard to prove that you hadn't heard the song before. Depends how ripped off it was. There was a thread before with bands that had ripped off other bands riffs (alot featured iron maiden), maybe check that out?

It's not too obvious, but it pisses me off cos I know its there! Can't find the thread unfortunately, which is a shame :/

My cat decided it was a good idea to climb on my windowsill and try and use my black dragon figurine as a scratching post - needless to say there's now various bits broken off it - fixable, but damned annoying when it cost me £80! :x

My Bloodstock screen.

It used to load up really small, then suddenly the print would get bigger. Now it stays really small and I can hardly read it.

Anyone else got the same problem?

My Fiancé was going to get a half day off work for a gig in London at the end of the month, the plan was to go to a few museums and bars then the gig.
But there is a big Microsoft conference in London that week, and he HAS to be there :( .

Sucks.
