I just wanted to add my name to those sentiments.

 

I got the feeling from recent posts that maybe my Russian Bride Smuggling Tooleybuc Tourguide brewing friend may be (respectfully) not 100% atm. unsure

 

I hope that is not the case.

 

Thinking of ya mate.

 

Lusty.

Hey Fellas,

Hope your well mate and just having a good holiday!?!?!

I'm assuming our friend is unable to access his computer, due to "the heirs" hijacking it whilst they're on school holidays.

If that's the case, I'm sure we'll hear from him when school goes back.

Of course I could be wrong, but I hope I'm right.

Antiphile is a great source of amusement & advice, & his lack of presence on the forum leaves the place seeming a bit bland & empty.

Yeah, he's probably brought the kids away on holiday and has switched off from technology. Hope it's nothing more serious anyway!

As Magnaman mentioned, his document server is down, meaning he or someone else has switched off his home computer server. I too hope you are ok Phil.

Chances are he switched the modem & PC off so the kids would actually see daylight & do something physical, & his missus said what's good for the goose is good for the gander, so he's been banned from the computer until school goes back!

That's my bet.

That or they all went away somewhere without internet access.

He posted on AHB today -- looks like everything is fine, he's just having issues with intermittent internet access at the moment.

A big hello and welcome to all my degenerate scum colleagues from an occasional contributor. And also to the new members who are yet to take the final plunge into the elite club of the walking drunk.

 

An interesting time has been had by one over the last fortnight and I expect the next few weeks as well. If anyone wishes to closely experience the gamut of their emotions, may I suggest you join me. These, days, I'm usually found at either the craps* table of the Treasury Casino, upstairs in the Club private gambling area shouting Moet Chandon to anyone walking past, or sitting in the gutter of the Queen Street mall begging for used cigarette butts. It's all a very novel experience.

 

On a side note, the chances of finding a drinkable beer in any of the bars and clubs in the entire casino complex are lower than winning a pokie grand jackpot. At least most of them have Coopers Pale on tap but after that it is very slim pickings. The Kitty Bar has Hop Thief on tap, upstairs in The Club and The Suite you can usually convince the barperson to retrieve a stubby of 150 Lashes from the very back of his bar fridge with lots of persistence, but that's about it. Of course, there's the usual bottles of imported lagers but they're all starting to taste bland and almost interchangeable.

 

Good luck to all and the best of British. I'll try to pop in soon when I have my next opportunity at internet access, or if I manage to hack my way into ASIOs backbone.

 

Cheers from the Philster

 

* I love the alliterative possibilities with the words "Coopers" and Craps". I wonder if PB2 has considered sponsoring the table. Even a simple catchphrase might do the trick: Coopers Craps -- Get Lucky!

 

PS. If anyone hasn't seen it, Tim Minchin has released a song overnight titled "Come home, Cardinal Pell" in honour of the survivors or sexual abuse by the clergy in Ballarat. Not only is it a great song, but it really carries a lot of punch too. It's on YouTube but for any lazy buggers,

Well Phil, I'm happy you're still alive and kicking. I'm not sure I get what you've been you to reallyunsure. Have really been spending all this time in a casino? If so I feel sorry for you. Nasty places I think. I would hate to have to spend any time in one let alone a fortnight!pinched

 

anyway I hope you get back to brewing soonwink

They used to have a better selection of beers on tap, mainly in the Livewire Bar. Last time I was there a couple of weeks ago I think I went with Jack and Coke because the beer choice was rather crappy.

 

Not sure what it all means either Chad unsure glad that he's still around though!

I checked out that video Phil. I had never heard of Tim Minchin, but he is great! I watched a couple of his other videos too. But anyway, I am a bit confused: are you trying to let us know that you too were a victim of a priest-pedophile? If so I am very sorry, but good on you for coming out of the closet about it. love Part of the healing process, isn't it?

 

Are you really living at a casino now, or is that one of your jokes? Gambling isn't going to help anything, Phil.

 

Whatever it is your are going through, know that your friends here on the forum care about you.

 

Take care of yourself Buddy, and keep in touch. -Christina.

Nice to see you back on board Pile.

 

Tim's song hit #1 on iTunes here according to this article.

 

http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2016-02-17/priest-says-tim-minchin-song-hurting-abuse-survivors/7178606

 

All proceeds from sales go to crowd funding for the Ballarat survivors trip to Rome so I bought a copy from Google play.

I'll have a look for him on Saturday when I'm out; I'll be at the pub across the road. Although I have no idea who I'm looking for. lol

 

Seriously though, hope whatever's going on isn't bad shit... unsure
