Yes, but that's a server :P Not really standard home equipment, is it?


Actually, for you it might be...

Haha, well... ;)

Nah it's one of the beefy servers we run that's hosted in a datacentre.

We do have a 64GB RAM server in house but I don't think it's got 24 cores, maybe 16. That's used for hosting virtual machines. The server screenshotted above is a data warehouse box.

In the mood for a few cans tonight and I can't quite place why.

Got a little bit distracted in the shower when thinking about Ania, which resulted in me smearing shampoo all over my face.

:lol:


The Clarkes shop in town donated an empty shoe box so I could put stuff together to send to my cousin in Afgan (he's been moaning his friends are getting more than him). I've packed: make your own silly animal glasses, a Hobnob chocolate bar, a pack of instant custard, a packet of hot chocolate titled 'Stessed', a pack of 50 toy plastic soldiers. For the jokey side, 4 packs of pocket tissues and a sachet of Durex Play. I'm contemplating printing a beginners guide to anal sex if I can find one on the internet. :lol:

My sister went out and purchased some lads mags which she's packing with tissues :lol:

Looking at the MOT history for my car on the VOSA website...

Last time round it failed because of rear offside tyre below the legal limit.

The pass certificate shows an Advisory notice of the rear offside tyre being close to the legal limit.

Dafuck? Dodgy test centre? Tested a different part of the tyre second time round? But even then, if it fails on a bald tyre, you bloody replace it. Seems they replaced with a tyre that was merely nearly bald.

Meh, replacing all 4 tyres before it's next test anyway.

need halp again peoples (though I'm certain no one on here is a dentist)
a few months ago I felt like I'd had something stuck between my front teeth, like when you have an apple or summit, so went to get it out with floss and a picky thing but there seemed to be nowt there but I could still feel it. So I left it and it's remained there since. I've looked on the other side of my teeth with a mirror and there appears to be nowt there, yet when I roll my tongue across the back of my two front teeth there still seems to be summit hard like where my gum meets the top middle of my two teeth. The fuck. It's been there for ages now but I dunno if it's a bit of a stupid thing to go enquire about. Could it just be a bit of hard gum or something? Don't get it.
Then recently I swear my front teeth seem to have seperated very very slightly making a teeny gap, I swear they were fully touching before but can't tell if I've just imagined it cos of this other thing.

Sounds like the garage that did the MOT before we took posession of the Yaris. There was a note (can't remember if a fail or not) about a nail in the tyre. They patched it, patch came off a day later, one new tyre!

I say go see a dentist just in case, especially if it's making you feel this uncomfortable and since you say your teeth might have seperated. Even if it turned out to be nothing "weird", it's still nice to get that peace of mind :)

It sounds like something is stuck, like a tiny bit of a shell from a nut or something.

Lis, how do you pronounce IKEA? I assume you know how the English pronounce it (Eye-KEE-ah, stress on the second syllable). Do the Swedes pronounce it the same as the rest of Europe (EE-kay-ah, stress on first syllable)?

When around Brits I'll pronounce it the English way, but for Swedes it's a bit different. We pronounce the letter "i" like "ee" but short, instead of "aye", so it'd be EE-ke-ah. Try pronouncing the "ke" like a sloppy Spanish "que", also short. It's difficult to explain, but I really hope it made a little bit of sense. I'm terribly shit at these things, I just never think about it :P
