    Bad beat/Moan/Venting Thread - BBV Archive 2

    OK, I don't know if this will improve performance or not, but we'll give it a try.

    Old BBV is here.

    I'm still trying to get to the crux of the matter, so this may be merged back in with the old thread at some point. In the meantime, it's business as usual.

        Interesting move Dom, fingers crossed it pays off you should probably put your opening post as the last post in the old thread as well.

        Start off the new thread...

                Yup, the gods have spoken.

                Well done on the score last night Richie btw. Great stuff.

                      Ya, this is probably not going to make a difference, as evidenced by the interruption 5 minutes after I did this.

                      I know what is causing is, but not what is causing the thing that is causing it, if you get my meaning. For some reason occasionally we get a spike of concurrent processes that won't die, and we are only allowed 25 concurrent ones at a time, otherwise we get that error we keep seeing. I don't know what is causing the processes not to die like they normally do though. I've been assured it isn't a server issue causing it, but I'm not convinced that it isn't something there anyhow. I'm trying to find out on vbulletin support forums, but help so far has been underwhelming.

                      I'm investigating moving host anyhow as part of this thing anyhow. This is probably more frustrating for us (and me in particular) than it is for everyone else, but that is little consolation I fear.

                        Repost from old bbv, any help much appreciated:

                        I'm sure it would be very easy to access this information via google but bbv is my first port of call in these situations..As part of one of the jobs mentioned earlier this evening I would essentially be self employed/free lancing and responsible for any tax contributions that may be necessary. As it would be part time (5/6 hours per month) I'm wondering what is the threshold above which self employed people have to begin paying tax on their earnings?

                                Let people repost anything that they feel is important enough to be brought over imo...

                                No worries 5star..we know you wouldn't be letting the site crash as often and for as long if it was in any way avoidable.

                                  Actually I meant to suggest this a while ago.
                                  I remeber a thread of board being closed at 150k posts as it was causing database issue.

                                  It's a bit of a shame that it ended on such a random number

                                    Hmm, story for the new BBV
                                    Was at a engagement party last weekend with the GF. Her old house mate is gettign hitched. Their other old house mate was also invited.
                                    She kept disappearing to the bathroom for a while, and was kinda obvious she was coked off her head. I joked about with with the GF and her friend and their reply was, "that's nothing you should ask her what she does for a living"
                                    Sensing the trap I didn't, but they later told me that she's a prostitute. They rumbled her when she left her work website open on the laptop, she claims to work at the bar in a gentlemens club. I've seen the menu, this place is a fully equipped brottle.

                                                Prostitution is legal in Australia. I wouldn't go so far as to say it was socially acceptable, but it's mostly no big deal. They wiped out a huge amount of organised crime in Sydney overnight when they did that. Actually it's legal in Ireland too. It's illegal to operate a brothel, but there's no law against paying for sex or being paid for sex in Ireland.

                                                  Obviously i'm aware it's legal. It doesn't take long to notice that they are everywhere. Seriously everywhere
                                                  I'd consider some random Aussie chick working as a hooker no big deal.

                                                  An irish girl over here on a working holiday visa working in a brothel is a bit different. Maybe I wasn't clear that this girl is from ireland.

                                                        Judging by how the revenue works I suspect you have to declare everything then pay tax on anything over the appropriate thresholds. The info should be on www.revenue.ie somewhere.

                                                        It's important to remember to take care of PPS contributions too, or at least look in to what the mechanism is for them.

                                                              Either everyone has suddenly become way more productive at work or the forum problems are having a big effect on posting volumes. Seems awfully quiet in here last week or so, its killing me because we are dead in work right now.

                                                                There was some story on AfterHours earlier in the week about the amount of Irish girls in Oz doing a bit of the old prostitution to get by. Apparently its all the rage these days.
                                                                dammit no-one ever asked me to become a gigolo when I was in Oz

                                                                maybe this is why Theresa is always 'in the gym'?

But I'll be in trouble if it's not all done by the end of the week. I've outsourced as much of it as I can to my underlings, but there's only so much I can ask them to do on top of their own work while I surf the net. Stupid work.

Now that I know that its legal to be a pimp and there are loads of Irish girls on the way back from oz who have the skillset required I would be straight into a cane shop to get the look right and into the business.

                                                                                                                Apparently you cant run a brothel so street walkers is what I will have to go with. Keep the start up costs down if I dont need to pay rents so its all good. Could go on the apprentice next year and get sugar to put the cash up to get my stable going and pay for said pimp cane.

                                                                                                                    1:45 Joe for 15 minutes so you can LOL Irish People
                                                                                                                    2:00 John Kelly on Lyric FM for the best daily radio show anywhere in the world. Turn it up loud.
                                                                                                                    3:10 Turn on Channel 4 with the sound down. You get to ogle Rachel while doing the word games without having to listen to Jeff and the dire z list celebs.

                                                                                                                    If you are very unlucky you will forget to turn off the TV at 4 and accidentally see some of deal or no deal... this must be avoided at all costs.

Now that I know that its legal to be a pimp and there are loads of Irish girls on the way back from oz who have the skillset required I would be straight into a cane shop to get the look right and into the business.
