How do you lot feel about the loveable crook these days?
Sorry for the late reply, and commiserations on Saturday I didn't watch it but it sounded close.
I like him (not sure if I'm suppose too). After 18 years in the championship he came in, we played the best Football I've seen at the Park and got us promoted. When he left for scum I hated him, but then again he got them relegated and came back. He could have been a legend here forever if he hadn't done that.
I think there's a perception outside the club that he caused us to have money issues. It wasn't his fault it was the owners. The dodgy French arms dealer Gaydamak whose son 'owned' the club because he wasn't able to pass the fit n proper test owed Chanrai 17mil and gave him the club instead. Chanrai then coincedently claimed to have put 17m into the club, ringfenced his debt and put the club into administration. Once the cVA was agreed to pay the debters 10p in the pound he bought it back using someone else as a front and did the same thing. He even used a fake shiekh (google it). Where the FL approved someone that doesn't exist for their fit and proper persons test.
To be honest I hated the Premier League, the tickets are too expensive, the players don't give a sh*t and it's all over-hyped. Much prefer the Football League.
Yeah, I agree with most of that. We battered them but couldn't score then we made three errors to gift them a goal with 30 seconds to go.
I was gutted to lose, gutted with the way we lost, but not gutted that we are playing in the Football League again next season. I was over it by the time the final whistle went.
The thing I disliked about the Prem last time we were in it was the cheating from the top clubs. We were abject, they could have beaten us playing on one leg, they just couldn't help diving and crowding the referee and arguing about every dingle decision. It was all so completely unnecessary.
The Championship is a great division to be in. Years ago I said my ideal outcome to a season would be to win the Football League, turn down promotion, have another crack at it the next season?
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
Regular will know of my current Trials & tribulations. I just haven't heard anything for a good 24 hours (getting toward 36 now!), I am starting to feel a little like I am not doing anything which could be taken as don't care. I have offered to help with something else and been grabbed by the guy to do a chunk of the testing, writing a test piece of software. Still can't the gremlins out of my head about "is it working? "
I've noticed that lately (ultra-overworked) I've got neck ache (top part of my back and lower part of my head gets stiff).
I'm working with two 24" wide monitors in vertical position and I've noticed that I'm looking usually to the upper part of those monitors as the code I write/review is not always long and it is on the upper part of the screen.
I'm not sure of that, but I'm starting to suspect I'm getting old + that my neck is working too much using that display combination.
Given the fact I do need two displays to work, what would you recommend me? I'm now trying both displays in the horizontal position and it looks like my neck is relaxing a little.
I'm not a ergonomics expert by any means, I recommend you ask one, but having your monitors side by side seems to make more sense as your neck normally does much more turning side to side than up and down and so works better that way.
