    Quoting this so it's not missed. Was any user data compromised, PMs, credentials etc?

          To be honest I don't know. It'd be very wise to change your passwords that you use the same of elsewhere that you use here (which you shouldn't anyway as it's bad practice).

            Anyone following what is going on at GGPoker. The site that is hosting the WSOP events. They have confiscated money (180k) from a player who re-registered on a different skin almost 3 years after he was first banned. They allowed him to play for 2 years losing. When he finally won and tried to withdraw they have confiscated the money. A number of players have come forward to say the same thing has happened to them. It seems though the site is not redistributing this money to players and instead just keep it. Seems like a nice little money-spinner. A number of players who played with the OP in this say they never received any compensation. GG has very vague rules around why they can ban players. Basically anyone they feel is bad for the ecology of the site. That could be just because you are a winner.

            All seems very shady.

            tl;dr Another online poker site being an online poker site.

              There's been a constant undercurrent of bad stories about GG poker.

                  Braved the Covid to get an x-ray in Tallaght Hospital today. Though I've always wanted to err on the side of caution, I think we may have over egged it.

                                    Thought Thomas Müller had a great game there. I say to myself, fair play he's still go it, but sure he might not have too many years left in him the fecker. Did a quick Wiki search, bastard is younger than me (30). Some player, some career.

                                      Something to do tomorrow night if you're stuck at home. While I can't vouch for the theatre aspect of it I can say for sure you won't see a better band than Lankum live this year.

                                      Support your local music fiends...

                                      LANKUM PRESENTS - A NATIONAL DISGRACE - LIVE AT THE ABBEY AUGUST 15th

                                      “You have disgraced yourselves again!" - W.B. Yeats

                                      In 1926, a furious Yeats took to the stage of the Abbey theatre, in an attempt to quell the riot that had erupted during the premiere of Sean O’Casey’s The Plough and the Stars. The audience, offended by O’Casey’s themes of prostitution and use of blasphemy and profanities, objected, thus marking an evening that was publicly deemed A National Disgrace.

                                      On Saturday 15th of August, almost a century later, LANKUM, along with a number of special guests from the contemporary world of Irish music and comedy, will take to the same stage and bring you an evening like no other. Broadcast live online to exclusive ticket holders, the group will host a very special one-off, immersive, surrealist experience.

                                      Come with us on a night out in Dublin city. An adventure that begins with your taxi drive to Dublin’s historic Abbey Theatre. You will be welcomed inside by our specially chosen usher and directed to your seat, thus beginning your gradual descent into a warped, dreamworld of musical performance, theatre, winding passages, doorways, drones and existential uncertainty…

                                      LANKUM will be performing two unique sets, comprising music from all three of their albums. For the first time in a live setting, they will be joined by all of the guest musicians who performed on their latest album The Livelong Day. The two sets will form continuous pieces of music devised by the band and producer John Spud Murphy, containing a number of never before performed songs alongside their more popular works, linked with completely new arrangements of drones and soundscapes, and interwoven with specifically selected audio samples from the world of Irish history and folklore.

                                      As well as LANKUM’s performance, the evening will be interspersed with appearances from a number of artists from all corners of the country’s current cultural landscape, combining to make this one of the most memorable nights out you are likely to experience in Dublin town.

                                      A National Disgrace will revisit the power of live productions to provoke visceral and emotional responses, and explore the possibilities presented by the unfamiliar new world of virtual performance in which we find ourselves.

                                      The broadcast will be available to tickets holders for 24 hours following the performance, going offline at Sun 16 Aug, 9.30pm.

                                        Bought and listened to that last Lankum album on your's and Larazare's (and despite SP's) recommendations. Good luck to them, didn't do anything for me.

                                              It's a bit transgressive in trad/folk terms but then I think so were The Chieftans, Christy, Planxty etc.. in their day.

                                              Not to everyone's taste for sure. I like to think of them as the 'black metal' of trad/folk which I'm sure will put even more people off but I think tomorrow night will be a spectacle at very least for the price of a couple of pints.

                                              Support the transgressives I say!

                                                The day-to-day HiFi amplifier (a vintage Swedish affair) is at the audio doctor this weekend so I'm reduced to listening to YouTube videos on the laptop with a set of reasonably decent, studio quality Sennheiser headphones.

                                                Thoroughly enjoying Bjork in 1997 though. I saw her in Boston in 1995 on the 'Post' tour and can confirm it was extraordinary of course.

                                                Highly recommended for those of you among us who think 25 years ago was just yesterday and music (particularly when it was live) was just better then.

There's about enough people on the entire ferry to have one person per deck. Its a rather genteel and elegant way of traveling. Falling asleep lulled by the mild vibrations of the ship and awoken eventually by a rasping Polish intercom announcement of fantastic breakfast deals in the restaurant.

The surest way of a politician in trouble to be re-elected is to start a war. Warmonging politicians in the image of Churchill are viewed as something admirable in the US and UK (Thatcher, Johnson when given a chance). And tough-guy politics is big everywhere. Hollywood can't stop making war movies that have tragedy but also glory at the heart of the story. So when exactly is the lesson going to be learned? Because it has been 75 years.

Thank you so much for giving me the nudge, was himming and hawing all week about buying a ticket, thought it would be a kinda flat experience, didn't think it would feel live. I was very wrong. It was incredible. So immersive. The segues were fantastic.
