          The original (long form) billion is 31688 years!
          The blow in baby billion came along to our side of the pond in 1974.

                  So that knife young fella has let me down. Hasn't replied to any messages.

                  Would normally kick up a bit of a fuss but feck it, he's a kid. Hopefully he sharpens his business and communication skills.

                  Half thinking of using the money to buy a Rotisserie for the Weber.

                  Has anyone got one? Are they worth it?

                    Brought the kids to the park late yesterday afternoon, a good oul bit of running around for them.

                    Two fuckers were comatose until half an hour ago. Bliss.

                          Do it ! Spinning meat is great craic, chickens, legs of lamb, rib of beef, self basting juicy goodness.

                          You can also get attachments like baskets, wings, veg etc

                                Oh that's some saving. Read one of the comments saying 'as long as it's not Spirit series II it should be fine'

                                Mine's the series II.

                                Have used the spit roast joke on the missus and I think I'm almost there.

                                  Have a chicken turning in there now. Can't wait.

                                    Was a little less than I thought too at €157. I googled the Genesis one earlier.

                                      boards.ie moving over to a new platform tomorrow

                                      It seems to be a 3rd party solution, rather than their own platform.
                                      Interested to see what it looks like when the site is back up on Thursday.
                                      Maybe its something we can consider coz honestly this version of vbulletin is still terrible.
                                      Maybe we can buy boards's existing platform for scrap prices.

                                        Was only thinking this morn, the first time on boards in a while that the new side ad made the experience awful. Scrolling on the phone felt like treacle.

                                            2p2 tried to move to a new site a few months ago and had to reverse this decision because of how bad the new site was. Can't remember what software it was.

                                              This version of vbulletin is genuinely shocking. Dobby said he had to stop posting it was driving him so mad, and it does take so fucking long to load and always has error messages.

                                                          It's the same with Sweden v Denmark. The unused letters will always make up the rest of the words.

                                                                                Have a look at this: https://www.tgw.com/golf-guide/what-is-swing-weight/

                                                                                Also read up on shaft SST Puring, FLO and Spine alignment (spining) and find out if these services are provided in the price. I had FLO done on a set of my irons and the difference is quite noticeable as I played with them before and after the process. Much better dispersion after.

I had an appointment already in the afternoon and got a mate to ask that it'd be OK when he had his appointment yesterday.

                                                                                                      Have a look at this: https://www.tgw.com/golf-guide/what-is-swing-weight/

                                                                                                      Also read up on shaft SST Puring, FLO and Spine alignment (spining) and find out if these services are provided in the price. I had FLO done on a set of my irons and the difference is quite noticeable as I played with them before and after the process. Much better dispersion after.
                                                                                                      I just know that the shafts made me hit the irons straighter. Even though I’m 6.3 I need flatter clubs due to being very shallow. Tried lots of different iron shafts and these were the best by a mile dispersion wise. I am using Superlight iron shafts as it is so went for lighter shafts again. Hit 5 shots with the 5’wood that was lowered to 17 degrees as don’t like 3 woods generally and loved it. My irons are 15 years old so time for a change.

                                                                                                          Or get DART to Raheny, turn right out of station down to taxi rank at village (100m) and get them to drop you off right at the very end of the causeway. Double win in avoiding a very long walk + not having to drive around painfully looking for a parking spot.

I called them and they said it was random and that she was getting complaints all day. Got her to check my address. Yes it’s Portmarnock in Fucking Dublin. I’ll void the bet as no idea whether I can go or not yet. Also it’s not just 1 trip to Waterford it would be 2.
