  1. Take care Vogel, get well soon! If the bugger doesn't die within the next few days then I suggest a classic Polish therapeutic method - get a 100 ml shot glass, add about a teaspoon's worth of freshly ground black pepper, pour ice cold Polish vodka over it, lighty stir, drink in one go (with the pepper!) and go to bed immediately afterwards, ideally under several layers of clothing to accelerate perspiration. Works like a charm for nasal congestion! Vodka is also a well-regarded, ahem, internal disinfectant. ūüėĀ¬†

    And Firefly is a damned good Mig 21 pilot!

    Now THAT is an overstatement. :P

    Welcome aboard Slippy, looking forward to flying with you.

    Interesting, in Canada we put our trees out with the recycling.

    S!

    Nowadays we do too, but back then everything ended up in a skip and went to a waste sorting plant. There are companies out there who collect your christmas tree free of charge and either turn it into green energy or replant it in a tree nursery. One time my sister and I decided to do the right thing and replant a tiny potted fir that used to be her Christmas tree in mum's back garden. Now that tree is about 6 metres tall. For once something good came out of Christmas!

    I had to look twice at the pickle¬†ūüėá

    As a Pole, I approve of the pickle. @Lipfert, your family has fine taste in Christmas decorations.

    Haven't put up a tree or any lights yet, but I might come up with something by the 24th. I'm coming by mum's place this weekend, I may take some pictures there. 

    I feel you @Heinrich. The last time I bought a real Christmas tree it spent two years on my balcony because I couldn't be bothered to carry it out for waste disposal. I live on the 4th floor, there's no lift in the building (a hearty thank you to commie architects) and the bloody thing weighed a metric tonne. It spent most of its existence looking sort of like a floral Chernobyl victim, rotting away happily (or not) until I finally got rid of it. 

  5. Not quite true. It's an excellent target rifle chambered for a superior cartridge, but as a military arm it suffers from a fragile stock (the piece of wood under the receiver and magazine is very thin), a fairly weak locking system (especially compared to the Mauser), rather slow loading (Krag speedloaders weren't used by the Norwegian military) and, most damningly of all, excessive production cost. 

  6. Awwww crap... I had to set some money aside for car maintenance and have to wait until the next paycheck to free up some funds for such purchases. I need the 1 TB version to replace my current 250 GB M.2 drive. The performance is spectacular (and it's fantastic value for money), but like you I'm constrained by the lack of space for new modules (right now I have something like 15 gigs of free space available with 2 modules not installed). 

  7. I've just logged in to ED forums to find that I'd been permanently banned. After the initial shock and disbelief I Googled it and found out that there's been a major server issue on ED's part. All you need to do to fix this is log out and back in again.
