Re: Quick thought of the day....

Quick thought: the United Nations has determined that 5 million Americans live in "third world" conditions. I'm not sure exactly how the world sees America these days, but it comes out to 14% of our population living in extreme poverty despite being considered a wealthy global power. I don't know w...

When I hear an Englishman saying "half six", my immediate assumption will be that he means 5:30. Then again, this isn't even wrong if you take our time zone difference into account. :D
:D

Welsh follows the English too: hanner awr wedi chwech is literally "half (an) hour past/after six".

Re: The Notebook v4.0

TIL that, apparently, Americans find the way Brits tell the time confusing. Specifically, I'm talking about phrases like "half six". I had never, ever thought that this could be ambiguous because these expressions are so ubiquitous in the UK. Apparently, to Americans "half six" instinctively means 5...

Re: David Gilmour - In Concert

It's just his In Concert DVD, it's been uploaded to his official YouTube channel. I'm assuming the songs you're unfamiliar with are "Je crois entendre encore" which is from a Georges Bizet opera called Les pêcheurs de perles (David speaks fluent French after all) and " Dimming of the Day " is a song...

Re: Non-UK, non-USA music

I think this should change to non-English language music, as the UK and US both have languages which allow access to further traditions and cultures. I mean, being Welsh means I have access to Welsh-language music which, even though still "British" in a vague sense, is very different in some context...

Two days down the road, we're still at 194 accounts. I have the feeling that it's working for now, so I will scratch that off the list. Next up: a nicer looking theme. Also, at the implied request of Dyolf, I will do some extra testing to make sure it's not slower than the default one. :) I use Saf...

Hey, he's coming to St. Louis! That's only a four hour drive from where I live, not too bad. And it looks like the cheapest tickets are only about $45 for balcony seats, nothing over $100 even to get up close to the action. I might have to persuade my SO to go on an adventure... :mrgreen: If I hadn...

No, and I'm not getting my hopes up. I'd be surprised if he ever tours again.
I guess it has been over three years since the last album, hasn't it?

I heard about it from Alec as well. At that point I had already done most work for the upgrade so I decided to just finish everything then.

Re: Post-upgrade to-do list

To be honest, the forum runs a lot smoother now than it did before and I think that is mainly to do with the theme installed on there. If you do install a new theme, can we have this one remain an option if not the default?

I'm glad the place is up and running again. It was literally yesterday that I set up a forum at floydians.boards.net and asked Alec to help to bring the members there in an attempt to keep Floydians going. It's locked now, but if this place is ever dies for some reason, it's always an option.

Re: Yes

I recently took a chance and picked up a copy of Drama on vinyl for a cheap buck at an antique store, and holy crap.
