Although I'm very attracted to the idea of owning a certain-coloured-person toilet brush, the "You can't see the site unless you create an account" thing is a bit of a turn-off, for me (I've even blocked pinterest, because I don't like being nagged to hand over personal information).
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
I am 50 years old. I blew my knees out years ago, walking through San Francisco. This year I did a big trip, I did Wacken Open Air, Brutal Assault and Sabaton Open Air. Afterwards, we rushed to Norway and saw Rammstein. I did all this thinking it's my last chance to physically be able to survive weeks in tents. Probably true.
Rammstein in Oslo was far and away the best gig i have ever seen. Every 2 seconds something blew up, or there were lights or smoke. I can't imagine they'd ever bring all that gear to Australia if they tour, so I was very glad to get to see them in Europe
Never heard of Bucks Fizz either, but after searching for it, it may not have anything in common
Buckshot LeFonque (band name) was an attempt by Branford Marsalis to mix jazz, soul, rock & hip-hop musics alltogether.
"Five fruits and vegetables a day? What a joke!
Personally, after the third watermelon, I'm full."
I started out coding, eventually had juniors join me, but from scratch, in VB6 (C# was not yet released), on South Africa's first online mortgage origination and real estate listing system. It became so successful that it was investigate by our Competition Commission as the was possible collusion with all the big banks to use only my system.
It was also my very first paid gig, and when I finished there, some two years later, I started work at bank, on their application that receives mortgage applications from my old system. Then I rewrote the app from VB6 into C#.
"'Do what thou wilt...' is to bid Stars to shine, Vines to bear grapes, Water to seek its level; man is the only being in Nature that has striven to set himself at odds with himself."
Even though I know I'm going to be flamed for this, one of the most memorable gigs was Nickelback, 2008 at RDS Simmonscourt, Dublin. Basically a mid-size tent on a parking lot, wonderful crowd, beer, and excellent rock.
