Re: Good deal on the mackerel

Yeah, porridge would be sensible, but I do like my egg sarnies in the morning.

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...

Re: NO NO NO COÑO!

"Manuela, who took me in hand in the kitchen and taught me much about Andalucian passion when I was younger..."

Interested in a series of picture articles about that educational experience?

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?

Re: Re: Success!

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

We always stack ours vertically bumper to bumper- it's more entertaining. And don't call me Shirley.

El Reg reforms the Quid-A-Day Nosh Posse

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

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.

LOHAN unleashes 'waiting for the FAA' collector mug

Lester Haines
(Written by Reg staff) Silver badge

Re: What is the actual hold up?

We have no idea what's causing the delay. It's a simple rockoon launch effectively, in restricted airspace.

Or, for myself, a "waiting for a concrete answer as to why some tankards have apparently not been dispatched" collector mug.

Re: Secret developments?

They're for running downwind to achieve safe launch velocity. They fall off immediately after and are recovered for reuse.

Re: Competitors dead in the water?

Not a stupid question, but one I can't answer. We did a fresh install of Raspbian, so can't say if the SD swap would work. One for the experts...
