    Absolutely devastated Mousey, And it does not help matters that I am having to look after my 83 year old father also. (who would not cope on his own)

    today is the day where I have to collect the paperwork and now register my mum.. Which is going to make it so finale.

    Its been a nightmare july.

    3rd of july my mum tragically passed away!
    4th july were going to be her 79th birthday which makes the passing much worse for us all.
    5th of july were the third anniversary of my Aunty passing.

    And we also can't get a date as soon as we would prefer for various reasons, two week today is the best we could get to say our goodbyes :(

    I was reading and then I was skipping ahead trying to find the part when the author starts laughing and couldn't find it, so, was that text sarcastic or not?!

    Welcome to VICE Publishing - Where we don't give a fuck about factual accuracy and we've never heard of google

    [merge]
    Just in case you were unaware, the original source code for the Apollo 11 Guidance Computer (as in the Apollo 11 rocket from the late 60s!) is available on GitHub :) It's all in assembly code and used to run on punch cards i think from what the discussions are saying, take a look

    https://github.com/chrislgarry/Apollo-11

    There's plenty of jokes in the issues section about why are we patching software that's already shipped for good measure :p

    when you fire up your rig for the first time in a week or 2, and think that the 185mb update for CS:GO is a tad weighty, and then notice the DiRT Rally update is 10.2GB...

    I'd have crapped myself seeing that before I got fibre. thank F for fibre.

    I was trying to figure out why my SSD is permanently full, while i was cruising through WinDirStat to see what's up on all my drives i noticed GTAV was taking up 64GB of space xD

    I still remember the good ol' days when we went mental at blizzard for allowing WoW to take up 14gb

    50gb for a game is nothing these days...... a 10GB update is nothing as well...

    Even if it takes me days to download a single game even if it's compressed heavily before being expanded afterwards.

    So I finally joined a gym with my wife and so far the experience is amazing, she is a fitness buff so now am getting my act together :p life is too short to be stressed about work all the time + it so much fun going to the gym with her.

    Seriously this is a little something that has to be made more aware of..

    [​IMG]

    My mother went 8 weeks I'm hospital fighting sepsis, Three weeks out of hospital, in rehab to gain some strength back and she were doing very well in that time.

    And after spending 9 hours in A&E , eventually got her onto a ward. just to find around 7 & a half hours later I got the Phone Call no one wants.. (And that is me & my mum) to the left of the screenshot of the "Write a comment" (its off my facebook)

    It still hurts to say my mum is one of the statistics.

    I'm told that the first year is the hardest, as it's the first of everything. How true is that.

    I seriously think I lost my mother way to soon..
