Re: Dr Vaccine - or how I learned to stop worrying and love the jab

<nods> It ain't snowing here, but it's definitely too cold for sitting outside and enjoying a beer.
Pubs in England were already going out of business at an alarming rate. It's kinda tragic!

My favourite watering hole was one of the last in my town where live music was a constant.

Re: Dr Vaccine - or how I learned to stop worrying and love the jab

You mean that you no longer remember what they should taste like? Damn it, Cholly - now I've gotta check. Having had no medication today, in preparation for the glorious twelfth, I'll allow myself a snifter. Mmm... Berentzen sour apple schnapps tastes exactly how I remember it, and it's been almost...

I'll refrain from having a rant about the EU and vaccines. Damn, I need a drink!

Re: Dr Vaccine - or how I learned to stop worrying and love the jab

Having now had both my jabs, and with lockdown being lifted tomorrow (in England), I was looking forward to going out and getting drunk. Unfortunately, my favourite watering hole (going back decades) has had to close permanently. Damn!

Re: Oolite Wiki

Feel free to do what needs to be done to improve it. As regards almost all Oolite Wiki stuff, I'd agree. But a user's personal legend should be sacrosanct. Having had some discourteous person tinker with mine, and attempt a synopsis of one of my tales (and getting it wrong), I feel very strongly ab...

Re: Cody's Fiction

Crikey! I'd forgotten about Lucky Moran. Perhaps I'll take another look at it when the next lockdown hits (as it surely will).
As for Kaxgar, I was never entirely happy with it, and after a read through last year, I decided to withdraw it.

Welcome aboard, Commander! No idea what the problem was, but 'tis sorted now. The Oolite embassy at SSC comes in handy sometimes.

Re: Oolite Wiki

My fiction seems to be missing from the Oolite Fiction page, Cholly. You could perhaps add An Ideal Victim to it as well - it and its thread contain hints on how to cross the Great Rift in the seventh octant.

Re: Debian 10 fonts issue

Hi, and welcome aboard. I know zilch about Linux, but a quick question: did you download Oolite from oolite.org or from a repo?

Re: Quote of the week!

What began as an attempt to repair tense EU-Turkey relations has turned into a diplomatic spat that has been dubbed "sofagate".
Excuse me while I collapse into paroxysms of laughter!
