Re: Re: 4 years

Well, we're just taking advantage of the delay to do extra work in the air. We've already tested the avionics once at altitude, but a second run will give extra peace of mind.

Re: Re: 4 years

That's about the size of it. We also have the issue of not being able to get the rocket motor reload in Europe, or in Australia for that matter (we looked into this a while back).

Re: Re: You did it!

You are cordially invited to repeat the experiment while sober and report back, and that'll be after extensive trauma counselling, trust me.

"Pearl Harbour"

Actually that's the movie where the Brits win the war in the Pacific. It's our revenge for "U-571".

Tankard saga

We had to get some new tankards knocked up - which took a while, as did working out who hadn't received their receptacle - and they're being dispatched by our C'n'C fulfilment outfit. You are on the list, so hopefully (and finally)...

Tomorrow, I'm going to follow suit, but replace your fish with more bacon. I'll have the chips, though, with a nice pork chop as well.

Anonymous benefactor to match today's Quid-A-Day donations

Re: Donor here. Thank you to everyone who has so far given

Indeed - thanks very much to everyone who's chipped in so far.

Re: Re: Bugger!

Our benefactor says the 30 quid will count. The system is bloody daft. If you're part of a team, you shouldn't be able to accept individual donations. It doesn't make sense - I personally have raised £0, because I've been directing everyone to the Nosh Posse page.

I do wish they'd add donations to individuals to the team total.

Quid-A-Day veteran fuelled by vastly improved nosh stash

Lester Haines
(Written by Reg staff) Silver badge

We said it before and it's worth repeating - energy costs are not calculated. The £1 a day is the cost of the food, and therefore salt, pepper and olive oil must be included. There's no raiding the cupboard.

Re: Re: 'two eggs/four slices of bread'

I think my granny considered a round of sarnies a two-slice sarnie cut into four. Some form of committee is needed here to discuss the matter.

Re: Re: 'two eggs/four slices of bread'

I feel a proper debate coming on here. One slice of bread for a sarnie? That can't be right.

'two eggs/four slices of bread'

= two egg sarnies.

Re: Caipirinha, mmm...

I had 'em at my wedding. One of the guests necked an entire jug, despite being explicitly warned. I gather he woke up the next day in a ditch wearing nothing but his underpants.

Re: Welcome back, Toby

I am currently discharging all beer from the fridge for the same reason. I have no coffee in the house, I've scoffed the last two "magdalenas" (breakfast cakes) and will trough the last slice of goat cheese later. Chickpeas are soaking...

We've had rosti on the post-pub menu list for months, but isn't it just a hash brown with cowbells and private banks?

You can recycle excess strained oil - stick it in a jar for future deployment. Good news on your success, gentlemen.

Aha - they've changed the set-up, then. Makes sense. I too am unable to run to vintage tipples, so any donations welcome.

Re: Re: Any other 5 Eyes El Reg readers forming vulture teams?

I think people can either donate to you personally or the group - it's a bit confusing. I don't know if donations to you are added to the group tally. I think I raised £0 last year, as stuff was directed at the posse.
