  2. Catherine Wheel do a lovely cover of this. I didn't realise it was a cover until I learnt more: A lovely song.

  7. I grew up in arcades. I love the games, I really do. But my best day of gaming came just after. When I got a little older I started playing the fruit machines, rather than games. There were kids around who could tell you how to use your nudges for 10p if you won, so it wasn't too bad. But you lost. You always lost. Then one day everything hit. Everything. Jackpots everywhere. It went on for a good long while - I just couldn't lose. It was astonishing. Win after win after win. My lucky day. Until I l started losing, obviously. Just a freak of coincidence. I got out stupidly well up though, and that was good enough for me. I genuinely cannot believe how many jackpots I got on that day though - it was crazy, I wish I could remember where this line comes from because I love it - this'll be nowhere near correct but you'll get the gist ("A man should place at least one bet a day. If he doesn't he could be walking around lucky all day and not even know it)". I don't believe in many things, but I believe you can get lucky. The trick is spotting it in the first place, and knowing when it's over so you get out ahead.
  8. *Trawls through Steam Wishlist and moves bits of it to this thread on a "want" basis* Return of the Obra Dinn Arcade Paradise Teardown Creaks Also Dwarf Fortress. This one makes perfect sense. As far as I understand it devs get cash for time spent playing. So many hours. SO MANY HOURS! And yet I want to go again.

    That's great thanks. (Lovely sketch too - and many things I can learn from it). Yeah - the skirt on my character originally did follow the shape of her legs, but somehow that fell out along the way. It's meant to be chainmail, but I now realise that would be really nasty against the skin, so she'd probably have an undergarment too. Will hopefully find time to do another tonight...
  10. Wordle provided a nice starter, just couldn't follow up on it: Daily Quordle 357 2️⃣7️⃣ 8️⃣5️⃣ quordle.com ⬜🟩⬜🟨🟩 ⬜🟨🟨⬜🟨 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬜🟨⬜⬜🟨 ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ ⬜🟨⬜⬜⬜ ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ ⬜🟩⬜⬜⬜ ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ ⬜🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬜⬜🟨⬜⬜ ⬜⬜🟩⬜⬜ ⬜⬜🟨⬜⬜ ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ ⬜⬜🟩⬜⬜ ⬜⬜⬜🟩⬜ ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ ⬜⬜⬜⬜🟩 ⬜🟨⬜⬜⬜ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬜🟨⬜⬜⬜ ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ ⬜🟨⬜⬜⬜ ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛

    Quick scribble. I've decided to have a crack at a few different characters from the book I'm working on. They're the Miss-Fits, a gang of female characters with quirks that make them unique. Gail Storm (first pass, probably subject to massive changes, including her name). But I almost like it. Her upper half is just too far backward, and there isn't enough of a suggestion of movement in the pose (possibly due to thing one). I like her hair for once. I love her boots. I do good boots (apart from that heel). But as Gail Storm she needs to be bigger and chunkier. She's a tank in the book, she isn't here. She's a berserker - I think I got some of that though. Hmmm. Maybe she doesn't need to be a tank... I like her. Get it right and she works. Edit: right arm a tad too long also (and she has a hammer rather than a club because I did not want to go near fingers just yet. (I could have a pop, but it wouldn't be pretty.)
  13. I've been storing it upside down in my store cupboard for a while now when I have extra. You do get a big old layer of oil when you open the jar. I just give it a good stir to mix it back. I hadn't thought to keep it that way once open though, so will give that a go, thanks. I do the same with tins of baked beans and other pulses. It means the tricky bit (stuck on beans) ends up at the top when you open the can, so you don't need to fish them out of the bottom with a spoon.
  14. Out. Keeps for absolutely ages. It's largely oil, which is used as a preservative. I've never had it go off, and until recently I was a fairly infrequent user. I must have had jars that lasted the best part of a year, possibly longer. If you're going to stick this in the fridge you may as well start putting your cooking oils in there too. Marmite in the fridge is madness too. Nothing, NOTHING, is going to grow on Marmite, bacteria wouldn't stand a chance. Salt is also a preservative, and Marmite has a daft amount in it. It'll pretty much keep forever. And most folk use it fairly sparingly (I cook with it quite a bit, and it still lasts ages). (I still remember a joke from Steve Wright's radio one show back in the 80s probably about having a competition to win a year's supply of Marmite. One jar.)
  15. Really enjoyed this one. Just enough info to get each first go after the 3 fact-finding guesses. SE took some working out though...
