    That's a two-man affair, no?

    Beautifully clear and sunny here as well. And no - I didn't have to go to work either.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Ha - dat's der only way you can enjoy the sunny weather, bro!

    I've rather enjoyed the dark, rainy day here, as we've had more than enough sunny days this year to last a lifetime. Great weather too (when it's so dark) for watching movies, which is better than watching them at night, because you're more awake, and so less likely to fall asleep!

    You had to go and ruin it for him didn't you?

    And before you run away with the idea that you are free from having to go to work, let me just remind you that you do in fact have a boss:

    He has you do some of the most menial of tasks, pays you bugger all, and if you shirk any of these duties, he'll make your life a misery until you 'knuckle under'.

    I am of course referring to that old tyrant, the little voice in your head!

    But don't lose heart, we all have stuff to do, only difference is that most of us get paid.

    I agree about watching the telly on darker days. I've got a curved screen and the picture quality is fantastic but the BIG problem is that they pick up every reflection and as my lounge is triple aspect sometime I just can't see what's on.

    Heh-heh.... I have lots of voices in my head all the time, shweety, but you wouldn't want to know what they say

    Just think macabre, twisted, and very, VERY disturbed....

    Draw the curtains - just as people did in the '50s with the dim and indistinct 405-line B&W (CRT) tellies.

    Exactly, Ian. Makes it easier to optimise picture quality and give the impression you're watching the movie in a cinema
