    gurnard, I thought you'd be dead by now.;)

    I have a Facebook account (in fact 3 of them), and it's fine for lite banter, but in a serious discussion it's at best a chaotic free for all. Forums' are still better for serious tech discussions if the mods are on point.

    i turn 29 this year.teenagers will call me old over 40s will call me a baby.

    fb can be a nightmare at times young people venting rage and immature posts saying they gonna go out and kill people and walls full of constant swearing.familys arguing for the world to see welcome to social media.

    "must admit that i feel dead some times"

    I for one am glad that this is not one of those times or anytime. I've always enjoyed your meanderings of thought. Good to hear from you!

    I also do a lot of lurking, but the drive to drop in has lessened. Things are much simpler now and advice, good or bad, is overflowing. So what are you into these days, on or off line.

    "you are always lurking & not working"

    Is there any work left? You are persistent so I suspect that you will always find work but I bet you also lurk.

    hi ddp :)
    the "smoke" is english slang for LONDON
    due to the fog being so thick (smog) during the victorian times, that you couldn't sea your hand with your arm extended. this existed well into the 70's until smokeless fuel law was brought in

    we would have said here in canada the "big smoke" or "the city" unless it was toronto then it was the "TO".
