@LaCrecerelle My only surviving tape from that era is a Nine Inch Nails mix and I think that might be a bit too much excitement.

Going mad and celebrating getting my final pay from my old job by paying my gas bill and making sound financial decisions.

Do any fedi friends have access to a theological library?

I'm trying to find someone to help me get a photocopy of a page or two from this book:

openlibrary.org/works/OL271987

It allegedly contains a photo of a cuneiform tablet which records history's oldest joke.

As a clown, I need a copy. :)

I'm also interested in having a copy of the book, though it seems to be looooooong out of print.

Any help, including boosts, appreciated!

@shadowfacts I did not at any point know what the hell was going to happen next in that episode and I loved it.

@futzle reminds me, I need to figure out what's going on there because it's the same file that I was streaming. Never seen plex do that before.

"I need a laptop."

Old job: "There's a spare here from a person who left two years ago, it's pretty decent. We can clean it up."

New job: "There are 40 brand new ones in boxes in the storeroom ready to go."

This is going to take some mental adjustment.

What does "give me a minute" mean to you?

@stibbons yeah the conversation seemed fairly conclusive that nobody had any objections to Freejack so I just called it. Much less messing about than polls and stuff. I think we might only do those if there's a tough choice.

Thanks everyone who attended! The dice have been rolled, and next week we'll be going back to 9 February 1992 and watching Freejack!

If you missed movie night due to timezones, try visiting the stream site 12 hours later (2000 UTC) and it should all run again! I'll be in bed so if it doesn't, I won't fix it. :awesome:

@mike I was just looking at your profile to find tonight's link and you have made exactly 17000 posts.

Using my time machine and going to the past to call Pablo Picasso an asshole, just so I can write a post on a music discussion forum that begins with "Actually ..."

It's Another Bloody Movie night!

Tonight we pretend we're going to the movies on Sunday, July 8 1973 and seeing Oklahoma Crude!

Official start at 7pm, there'll be something neat on the stream from 6pm (0800 UTC) if you want to check your setup.

Oh, I won't be watching to check but if this is showing at a bad time for you, the whole program should repeat exactly 12 hours later ... 😁

@space_cadet Will those damn leopards ever stop eating people's faces?

@uoya no Windows. Dual screen on my main PC, Mac on the left.
