I remember seeing it described as "the best Star Trek movie never made" and it does have that vibe to it.

Well now I absolutely have to see it! :D
For reasons even I don't know I started watching enterprise a while back on the horror channel... after so much investment I feel like I need to persist and finish it (if only for the fleeting appearance of Archer's beagle).

It’s got a really old bad joke in there but somehow it drags you in and makes you feel like part of the crew.

Never got on board with that.

Ow ow ow ow ow - just bent back my ring finger on the right hand - think I've trapped a vein. Swollen and the tip has gone cold. See how it goes by tomorrow. There goes my chance of learning the three finger technique on my bass.

(Started off using my thumb, then a bass pick, then two fingers - was hoping to copy Maria in the resident band at the cavern who plays with three and uses her little finger as a mute)

Does anyone know a 'missing person' site for the UK? I'm not meaning 'missing' as in possible victim or deliberate disappearance. There are a couple of people who I've lost contact with many years ago and would like to reconnect if at all possible.

There used to be Friends Reunited, but that disappeared some years ago. I think it was popular for a while, but made no money.
AFAIK, nothing has sprung up to replace it.

The Daily Mail has a column for that sort of thing, people looking for old aquaintances and the likes, might be the Mail on Sunday, if your old friends are likely to read the Mail might be worth a go.
Have you tried looking them up on facebook?

I've tried various internet things , but I've only got details from many years ago and at least one of them was given to changing surnames rather frequently. It's not impossible they are both dead. They'd be in their late 60's if alive.

Are they in the UK? if you search on their name then one of the results (at least) should be an online directory. You can get down as far as a list of names and partial addresses without having to subscribe, which gives you additional info for searching. Unless they have removed themselves from public lists as far as possible, as we have.

Also, agreeing that FB can be tedious when doing this but very productive.

Urgh no thanks... have woken up in the middle of the night with a spinning head, completely self inflicted by drinking too much gin. :boozing:

Also looked for my phone for about 5 minutes before realising I was sitting on it, which leads to the pertinent question... just how big has my arse become over lockdown? :hahazebs:

My advice, drink gin before they add all the shit to it, ie vodka :p secondly if you cany find you phone because youre sat on it, not and issue, if you cant find your tablet because youre sitting on it thats a problem, if you cant find your laptop because youre sitting on it thats a major problem, if you cant find your desktop because youre sitting on it seek help immediately :hahazebs:

I should think the more pressing question would be: Who is my arse butt-dialing while I'm looking the other way? :thought:
