        Any sign of the new scanners that you don’t need to take liquids out of your bag coming to Dublin.

        That will be a serious time saver.

              Ah I'm at 11.20am so will come around 9 and be sitting at my gate at half 9.
              What's the craic with removing the silly 100ml liquid limit? Heard it did in Shannon. Not that I care too much, I am just a mule for feminine liquids. Though if I could bring a bottle of gin or whiskey it's a big deal. Will it be some sort of weird thing where some airports have the limits and some don't so you could bring them but not bring them back?

                Stalked 'im on a cash table at 7pm.
                Loitered for over an hour until a seat opened
                Jumped in, handed dealer my cash,
                stacked up my chips and looked over to see him leave and jump into a side event.

                Are bad best stories still

                  I was recently reading Victor Chandler's biography and Jeffrey Bernard (dissolute punter, writer and Soho boho) was mentioned a number of times (usually with much hilarity).

                  I remember reading about Bernard as a teen probably due to the well received play 'Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell' by Keith Waterhouse.

                  So I ordered his book 'Talking Horses' off Amazon (second hand) which is a collection of his reminiscences of drinking, gambling, and generally being a bit of a louche wastrel.

                  He was friends with those other legendary punters Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud as well as many other famous and infamous types of a London now largely gone.

                  Highly recommended for those of you with a bent for a bet, a beverage or three, and a literary telling of tall and not so tall tales - I know there a few on here who would enjoy it immensely. And it's beautifully illustrated throughout with pencil drawings of various improbable scenarios.

                  From an IT article on him.. "In total he wrote more than 1,000 columns (for The Spectator). His themes were drink, horse-racing, drink, moaning about a lack of money, drink, and moaning about women; he had four wives, so there was no shortage of material. As long ago as 1965 he was diagnosed with pancreatitis and was given only a few years to live. But he confounded doctors and friends by drinking heavily and chain-smoking for the next 25 years. In a reflective article on his alcoholism he wrote: "If I had all the money I've spent on drink - I'd spend it all on drink."

                        Nice one SP. I actually think I saw that doc at the time. I would have watched anything under the 'Arena' umbrella usually back then. Deffo gonna watch again now. Thanks.

                        As a collector I am thrilled to get a signed copy accidentally. The signature checks out and judging by other first edition prices is worth several multiples of what I paid for it.

                        Sadly all that means is I'll never loan it out or give it away which I often do with books (like yourself).

                        It's proper LOL HILARIOUS... EG. when he lived in the countryside (for reasons unexplained but possibly after one of his many divorces) he used to send a postcard to himself everyday so when the postman would have to deliver it he would get a lift into the village so he could go to the pub.

                        The fact that he once puked on the Queen Mother's shoes while on the sesh is reason enough to what to know more.

                        Interestingly the art of the 'diarist' these days seems largely to have been relegated to blogging I suspect - anyone know any GOOD diarists in this day and age? Maybe its an art form that's dead and buried?

                        Or has now been subsumed into podcasting.

                        But there's something oh so pure about the format when its as raw, literary and romantic as Bernard's.

                            Can't remember which Sunday paper carried his column but my father used to buy it for that alone. Think he was a good buddy of Peter O'Toole as well.

                                Yes O'Toole was very much part of that Soho set as well and was the first person to play Bernard in the play. He called Waterhouse and cursed him for altering his life cos he had planned to take a year off and that was dashed when he read the script and immediately knew he had to play Bernard.

                                I want to say it was The Observer cos I'm sure I remember reading him on Sundays too (I definitely never bought The Spectator so it was definitely a Sunday paper) but a quick internet search not throwing too much up.

                                  An IT question that I'm sure some of you guys can help with.

                                  We sell a WiFi bridge for automating blinds.

                                  I've come across a problem with two seperate customers.

                                  The bridge keeps intermittently disconnecting from the server. It can be controlled locally while disconnected, it will send commands to the blinds etc, but you can't make any changes on the app.

                                  The engineer at our suppliers told me the ports the bridge uses to connect to the server.

                                  Is it possible for another device in the house to be using that same port and disrupting things?

                                  Can I make changes in the router's settings to fix? Can I find all devices using the port for instance, and assign a different one to the offender?
                                  I hold silver in tit for tat, and I love you for that

                                    I think it was an Irish paper that you and RD3 read it in, probably the Sunday Independent. Think they just sub-licensed/republished the Spectator articles a few days later.

                                      Read the book and while I thought it was brilliantly written the thought of spending another moment with the crowd of narcissistic creeps that populated it is not very inviting at all.

                                                I recently discovered Claire Keegan when someone recommended her latest novella Small things like these which I thought was the best Irish writing I've read since John McGahern and as a writer she has a lot in common with him not least a pared back writing style that packs a lot into very few words. I've been working my way through what little she has written and one of the highlights so far was a short story called 'Foster' which I believe is on the leaving cert syllabus.

                                                I saw then that the film 'An Cailín Cúin' that was released last week to universally rave reviews was an adaptation of Foster. I went to it last night and granted that I'm definitely the prime target audience in terms of the nostalgia (She sets her writing in the mid eighties but as an imaginative creation its a peculiar mix of elements ranging from the late 60's to early eighties) and maybe I was influenced by having read the story recently but this was one of the best 'little' films I've ever seen. Phenomenal performances, beautifully shot and paced hardly a false note anywhere* Highly recommended.

                                                * there was one slight thing near the end that would probably only bother a freak show like me
                                                SPOILER
                                                The Cuckoo leaves by early July and would never be heard at the end of the films setting in late August

                                                  Poor timing for it. Only a couple of weeks after the Irish open and a week after the deepstack/acop.

                                                  Also lack of live satts. They had 1 last weekend and I think 2 this week whereas you couldnt move for seeing an Irish open satt somewhere. Schedule wouldnt tempt a rec player like myself out to play any tourney so a bit of work required to improve the "festival" as a whole if they want bigger numbers

                                                    Obviously the lack of them booking very reasonably priced advertising on IPB is what has caused the damage here.

                                                      The engineer at our suppliers told me the ports the bridge uses to connect to the server.

                                                      Is it possible for another device in the house to be using that same port and disrupting things?

                                                      Can I make changes in the router's settings to fix? Can I find all devices using the port for instance, and assign a different one to the offender?
                                                      Somebody who actually involved with IT/Networking might be able to give you a proper answer. But until they come along.

                                                      I think ports are assign randomly, but some devices also have set ports they want to use. Other devices could potentially take that spot.
                                                      I had a similar issue with a wifi appliance (washing machine fwiw) that would lose connection. The solution was to go to the router settings, via its IP address, and assign the required port to only and always be applied to the IP of the device. since then no issues.

                                                        Everything everywhere at once was everything I was expecting it to be. I thought it would be an interesting premise but the execution wouldn't be for me.

                                                                          We sell a WiFi bridge for automating blinds.

                                                                          I've come across a problem with two seperate customers.

                                                                          The bridge keeps intermittently disconnecting from the server. It can be controlled locally while disconnected, it will send commands to the blinds etc, but you can't make any changes on the app.

                                                                          Is it possible for another device in the house to be using that same port and disrupting things?

                                                                          Can I make changes in the router's settings to fix? Can I find all devices using the port for instance, and assign a different one to the offender?
                                                                          I think you are looking at it the wrong way around.
                                                                          My assumption here is that these are all "standard" home broadband connections meaning they are assigned a dynamic public IP and the connection resets with the ISP every X hours (24-72 roughly).
                                                                          Once connection is reestablished all the linked devices reconect and reassign internal addresses and ports out, what you need to do (i think) is to assign a port to the blinds bridge using port mapping on the ISP's router.
                                                                          It's a fairly easy task. (e.g for VF router log in,
                                                                          look at the existing connections and find your device, rename the connection to something easily identified.
                                                                          go to advanced, setting, LAN settings, DCHP resversations and create an entry for your device (this will ensure it always as the same internal ip)
                                                                          then under internet, port mapping, assign it a port.)
                                                                          What this will do is whenever the connection resets or the router is restarted the blinds bridge will ALWAYS have the same internal address and port.

                                                                          I'm pretty sure that should solve the problem.

Outright hostility against the democrats can't be a good strategy for him, I'm pretty sure democrats buy more EVs than republicans. Also Twitter, sexual assault allegations, Tesla stock cratering...it's a lot going on.

                                                                                                  Also lack of live satts. They had 1 last weekend and I think 2 this week whereas you couldnt move for seeing an Irish open satt somewhere. Schedule wouldnt tempt a rec player like myself out to play any tourney so a bit of work required to improve the "festival" as a whole if they want bigger numbers

There seems to be quite a few events/festivals but not one place that advertises them a decent bit in advance of them happening? Most of the time the first I hear of a festival is someone posting an update in this thread and by that stage, it is far too late to make any plans to play where as I would probably jump in the odd event if I could organize it well in advance. The forums here around all this stuff seem completely dead?

                                                                                                    My assumption here is that these are all "standard" home broadband connections meaning they are assigned a dynamic public IP and the connection resets with the ISP every X hours (24-72 roughly).
                                                                                                    Once connection is reestablished all the linked devices reconect and reassign internal addresses and ports out, what you need to do (i think) is to assign a port to the blinds bridge using port mapping on the ISP's router.
                                                                                                    It's a fairly easy task. (e.g for VF router log in,
                                                                                                    look at the existing connections and find your device, rename the connection to something easily identified.
                                                                                                    go to advanced, setting, LAN settings, DCHP resversations and create an entry for your device (this will ensure it always as the same internal ip)
                                                                                                    then under internet, port mapping, assign it a port.)
                                                                                                    What this will do is whenever the connection resets or the router is restarted the blinds bridge will ALWAYS have the same internal address and port.

                                                                                                    I'm pretty sure that should solve the problem.
                                                                                                    Cheers my man. I'll have a go of that.

Outright hostility against the democrats can't be a good strategy for him, I'm pretty sure democrats buy more EVs than republicans. Also Twitter, sexual assault allegations, Tesla stock cratering...it's a lot going on.

                                                                                                              Being early is the same as being wrong. I was about five years too early with this bet.

                                                                                                              If you think something is a bubble, or someone is a charlatan there's far more profit in betting on them. There'll be plenty of time to get short after they get found out.

Three nights using it now and it's working a treat, a massive difference in how I feel waking up, or more importantly, my ability to get up early.

                                                                                                                  I skipped the €30 annual sub but the temptation to listen to recordings of myself snoring or talking in my sleep was too much.

                                                                                                                  Was going to sign up today anyway but a little bonus and tip for anyone else is, if you wait three days the sign up drops to €18.

There seems to be quite a few events/festivals but not one place that advertises them a decent bit in advance of them happening? Most of the time the first I hear of a festival is someone posting an update in this thread and by that stage, it is far too late to make any plans to play where as I would probably jump in the odd event if I could organize it well in advance. The forums here around all this stuff seem completely dead?

Seems to have most games advertised on there. The only thing is though, nobody ever posts a structure or anything and is never held to account like they were with the charter on here.

                                                                                                                      A typical post advertising a game would go like this. €100 entry, 8pm start, 20min clock. And that's it
