Occasionally there's a lull

in forum proceedings. There's often no apparent reason, but it happens, and has been happening for years. Perhaps there's a shortage of real news, or interesting topics - whatever.

When it happens please resist the temptation to post those "I'm bored - what are you doing today?" threads. That's the stuff of innumerable chatrooms, and it's not what we're here for. Please try to ensure that when you start a new thread it has a point - one that might appeal to others, and start a discussion.

Maybe everybody is watching the footie on the TV? Or perhaps out enjoying the sunshine?

Not this forum only.
I often suffer hefty download penalty during evenings and weekends.

Today the whole thing is going flat out and 59 minutes since you posted FE, this is only the second response

Been for a walk....now sitting in front of the fire.

I'm sitting in a room full of kids doing ECDL. Whoopee doo!

Or picking potatoes, or tomatoes?

Then going about finding a safe place to store them for the winter.

What Module you on?
Did my ECDL a few years ago.

  Mike D 17:20 01 Nov 2008

No....
I run a training centre, and these kids are 9 years old (and upwards).
I reckon I've done the complete course about 4 times now when having to test new releases of the software.

A lockable subject then.
Possibly.
