    Okay down tools:

    Oooh minetest looks interesting.

    Talking of comics, just started reading this and I can highly recommend it: https://www.imagecomics.com/comics/series/chew

    I think I will be just relaxing with the family, and playing games, watching Dr. Who and being generally lazy.

    This is like being in class. Ok, is anybody doing anything different than playing games, watching Dr Who and being lazy. Hands up. No shouting out.
    @bladedanny - Great stuff. I did that last summer, only I didn't get very far. Thoroughly enjoyed ripping up the dodgy laminate flooring in the living room though.

    It was the bathroom wall for me. Knocking that out was rather fun.

    Shhh.... a bit of peace and quiet before the huge 6 prize draw give-away tomorrow. Creep in, sit down, and watch...



    REMEMBER, entries are still being taken UNTIL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. If you're in the UK and work in IT support, PM me your professional details to be included, OR, if you have entered a VeryPC competition before, all you need to do is post in the thread that you'd like to join in and we'll look up your details from before and add you. Either way is good.


    Good luck for tomorrow everyone!


    Al

    Is it just me, or does anyone else think that Noddy Holder sounds like some kind of aid for impotence?

    Edit: That makes slightly more sense.

    Suppose I'd better go back and watch the two previous vids first. Don't want to risk it by doing things in the wrong order.

    Judging by the "other" work all you techs sometimes talk about, I can see that your job roles extend far beyond supporting IT. It seems to me like if you use a computer to do it and no-one else knows how, then it must be the job of the IT team.

    Hats off to you I say!

    Al
    Anything with a plug on it, as they say...

    Mind you, yesterday I was dissasembling a large corner desk so it would fit through a narrow door. Tomorrow I will be back to more IT related work installing the new smart switches I got from @VeryPC_Colin_M
    I say tomorrow, I'm not sure I can wait 'til then...

    Don't you just love extracts taken out of context?

    As for today's, you tease us by lifting the hem of the star prize showing us just an ankle - well the corner of a box in this case.

    That's it! You've given me the idea I needed. I've been trying to come up with an all-inclusive way of earning bonus entries for anyone following the thread closely. Here it is:

    Make a guess at what the star prize for day 25 is and I will award you a bonus entry. It's that simple - no prize for correct answer (other than pride and smugosity), but a single bonus entry for each person who has one or more guesses. Remember that no-one gets more than 3 total entries including their original entry (currently just @sparkeh and @HaleStorm are maxed out). CLUE: there is a tiny big clue somewhere in this paragraph.

    Al

    EDIT - I will reveal the prize later today. I'll take guesses until 3pm then tell you all what it is, so make your guesses...
