Nice monitor and speakers, but the keyboard and mouse seem very out of place. The mouse looks heavy too...

Yay spam.... I mean forum anniversary :)

Exactly one year ago, this place was attacked by a bunch of spam bots (If I remember correctly) and ended up moving/upgrading to this current forum...

Ugh, I hated that. Also welcome back Myrddin!

Pardon? What did you say? I'm back? Am I? Oh yes, so I am.

I think I was watching bits and pieces of the drama unfold.

I wasn't a member of the forums yet....

Although if that were to happen again, I would probably lose my head :lol:

Isn't it odd how since worldnewser pointed out that most of the people have left the forum, me, Myrddin and Olli have announced we're back? Actually, I think Myrddin's post was before worldnewser's.

Olli back in action!

Yeah.. you're worst nightmare is back! :twisted:

Dun dun dun! **shocked gasps** :shock:

I'm growing impatient of waiting for beta 2 of Vystal 2008. :(

In other news, I'd like to thank my stupid Conservative council for slowly turning our borough into a rubbish pit. Which idiot's decision was to even consider the idea of fortnightly bin collections? :twisted: One small green waste bin really won't be enough for people such as large families plus there are now files everywhere. We can't even have the bin lid slightly raised as a result of overflowing-ness but what is there to do, we can no longer leave a separate waste bag to be collected, it has to be all in the bin, but how, it's not gonna fit in there!? Plus down in a town near us, the streets look completely filthy with flies everywhere. Overflowing bins, rubbish bags everywhere and the odd rat every now and again. :evil: :twisted:

Lastly, I've noticed a large increase in the number of hired rubbish collection vehicles and most of these rubbish collectors seem to be hired as temps.

What a rubbish rant.

Ranty

I feel sorry for you... Perhaps you should petition?

----------

So I decided to take a crack at writing a tutorial. But it turned out longer than I thought it would be (It might as well be two!). Everything went fine until the last seven or so steps, when I just couldn't figure out what words to use. For the sake of preventing a thread (or two) in the tutorials section from being locked for mediocreness and lack of clarification, I decided to just host my tut off-site for the time being.

Perhaps someone can take a look at it and give me some pointers? I'm not too good with writing up things, and I don't read many tuts, which is why I have a bit of lack of experience :| To prevent this thread from straying too far off-topic, I'll accept PMs :wink:

Whoa, didn't see that coming :o When I mentioned "petition" I was thinking of the retro papers signed by a bunch of people to be mailed or something. I completely forgot about digital petitions*.

Well, I dunno. It's the only idea I could think of. Besides, it's not like you could go up to them and scream and yell at them to fix it. Perhaps sending pictures about how horrible conditions are would help? Or you could just keep mailing them apple cores as retribution until they change their minds :twisted:

Although, my advice is pretty cheap. I haven't experienced those conditions, which is why my advice seems rather over-dramatic. It just sounds like your place is turning into a dump..

Forgive me for asking, because I don't really know....but why aren't you allowed to use another garbage can/bin?

Would they really listen to a 12 year old?

They replaced our bins brand new council branded bins (mandatory) and we can only have one. Despite waste being collected fortnightly, all recycling waste gets collected weekly.

What was the point of replacing all bins with council branded ones - infact how much did it cost and was this payed from the taxpayers money (probably yes)? :twisted:

EDIT: As a result of the credit crunch, I can no longer afford stamps for mailing so I won't be able to send an angry letter or a rotten apple core or a picture of what their turning our borough into.

The former and latter options can both be sent via email.

Thanks for pointing that out. Now all I need to do is try and motivate my self to do it because right now, I'm not in the mood, not with school starting on Tuesday. :twisted:
