  1. A plea for more civility

    ..Chaps...& chapettes(?)   A simple “No” would have sufficed.   Goodnight to all.
  2. A plea for more civility

    It seems almost every thread descends into handbags these days (maybe some of the old timers will say “whaddya mean, ‘these days’?!) I understand the attraction to having a no-holds barred forum, and as most of us are adults, by and large we’re able to roll with the punches. And even though it seems to be the fashion these days to be as provocative on the internet as we can, I for one, find the excessive backwards and forwards sniping, draining.  Could we perhaps find a way to dial it down a notch?
  3. What are you cooking today?

  4. What are you cooking today?

    There's always room for Max! I didn't realise my subscription to the Comma Appreciation Society had lapsed!   Anyway, if it had indeed been the former, then an "all" is missing!

    come on over John! I have enough for you!
  6. Thanks @theGman  There's a wealth (no pun intended) of knowledge in this thread. Looks like another long night of reading! By the way, does anybody think Deutsche Bank will be allowed to go out to pasture as Lehman Brothers did?
  7. What are you cooking today?

    Lasagna al "whatever is in the fridge". Very authentic Italian.
  8. I find myself in a similar boat to Alteregouc. I've been dragging my feet for the best part of this 10 year bull run not having enough confidence to actually put my money where my mouth is. But I think I'll be testing waters soon. (And I'm sure when I do, it'll be time for the great financial crisis again!) I'm slightly flummoxed by the online brokers too. Seems like traderepublic is the only one offering commission-free trades? The online broker industry also appears to be a few steps behind when compared to the offerings from US/UK/Asia? @fraufruit I had Varta on my monopoly-money trading app. Shoulda, woulda coulda! (Kicking myself!!)
  9. Finger in Po.. Mexico or "one up the bum, no harm done!"

    I bet that reporter doesn't know how to use a slide rule!
  10. What made you laugh today?

    For those who have a few minutes to spare:  
  11. English radio in germany for traffic news, ice etc

    Google Maps' live traffic does a pretty decent job of telling you how to get where you want to go with minimum fuss.
  12. Even after all these years, I still...

      That's what happens when you don't learn handwriting and just go straight to keyboards! That'll learn you, young 'uns!
  13. Even after all these years, I still...

    Before this thread gets completely derailed, Prof. Seger called and I'm afraid @BradinBayern and @El Jeffo, you've both been overruled. Here's his final word on it:    
  14. Even after all these years, I still...

    Just so Brad doesn't feel too left out in the Concorde discussion, here's some new tech in the aviation industry designed by new tech!    
  15. Why are you happy today?

    What a heart warming story! Faith in humanity just went up a tick.
