Oh it’s not for me - it’s my nazifeminist bot that checks everyone is behaving themselves… :lou_lol:


#484

Having same problem

Get some sort of msg about an anti-forgery token & the @button isn’t working (I may be drunk in charge of a phone though)

:lou_sad: :lou_lol:


#485

Which page?


#486

Actually @cobham-saint , I’ve seen that before when I’ve double clicked when logging in.

Try not double clicking when logging in. I’ll get a proper custom errors page in place.


#487

It’s good that @furball is keeping busy.


#488

Double clicking on a mobile?

They’re not fat, they’re big-boned.

Does remind me of a mate of mine, and I’ve told this story before but it’s a good’un. She was a proper tomboy at school and has battled with her weight at points in her life. She is a teaching assistant that specialises in naughty kids. Send a thief to catch a thief.

Anyways, she’s relatively new in the job and one of the kids calls another “a fat fucking cunt”.

She intervenes immediately.

“Oi! I don’t like that word!”

“What word, miss?”

“Fat”

That year took a shine to her thereafter.

Now not working @@@@@@@@@@.

Fat thumbs, conspiracy or 2nd rate web development Pap? Or something else?

:lou_lol:


#493

So then @saintbletch here is a photo of my instrument panel

As you can see it has 2 petrol pumps on it, neither of the fuckers have any arrow above, below or to any side of them. Yeah @bearsy there are arrows on the petrol guage but they just highlight the half way mark.

So, I retract the bit about the nozzle on the pump because you did say arrow, however, in my defence, the lack of any arrow is a bit of a downer.

Your still a @saintbletch though.


#494

@btripz There are two arrows between the car and the petrol pump on the top picture of the pump

Ie go to the petrol staion after 360 miles and this side of the pump :lou_lol:

Occams’ razor. Simple second rate dev incompetence.

@btripz , firstly thanks for the PUBLIC APOLOGY.

It takes a big ( AND WRONG ) man to APOLOGISE.

PUBLICLY.

Thanks for BEING WRONG about the nozzle, but I’m also a big man so I won’t rub your nose in it about you BEING WRONG about the nozzle, even though you made such a public display about BEING WRONG about the nozzle and called me names all the while you were BEING WRONG about the nozzle.

Anyway, let’s move on from you BEING WRONG about the nozzle and examine that fuel gauge - where I suspect you are also " BEING WRONG".

To show how full the tank is, the designer thought they would put dashes for all of the division marks except for the 1/2 full indicator:

  • 1/1 (full)

  • 3/4

>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 1/2

  • 1/4

  • 0 (empty)

Do you not think there is some hidden meaning behind the ENORMOUS arrow the designer used to indicate the tank being 1/2 full?

Or, do you prefer the theory that knowing when our fuel tanks are half full is the most important fraction to know about?

I wonder how many people say to themselves

FUCK!

My tank is only a 1/4 full.

I missed knowing that my tank is half full!!!

I wish I had a clear and DIFFERENT mark that represented the halfway point of my fuel tank.

Between you and me, Bob, I think there is some hidden meaning behind that symbolism.

Perhaps the gauge designer is making some sort of philosophical point and wants you to consider whether the tank is 1/2 empty or 1/2 full?

Perhaps the bloke I once met down the pub is right? He told me that the arrows on fuel gauges ALWAYS point to hidden Mayan burial chambers.

But he was drinking Punk IPA* at the time.

I wonder what that ARROW could be POINTING to?

P.S. I’m glad we didn’t play this out in public.

P.P.S I think it should be You’re still a @saintbletch , though.

P.P.P.S I think you should change your name to @btripz for a month.

#497

You seem to have recovered really well from you 3 pints of Brewdick* last night Bletch

You must have youth on your side…(don’t tell his mum)
