    Pulled someone drowning out of a swimming pool while on holiday in Cyprus when I was about 14? That was kinda strange because no-one seemed to be worried about the fact he wasn't breathing.

    Never seen anything weird or fucked up IRL, but I once saved some guy's life online who I'd never met. He was about to commit suicide and some Americans I knew from an IRC channel a few years ago messaged me on MSN, all of them panicking like mad. I'd just come in drunk from a night out so it was all kinda weird to me, but they were giving me all this information they had on this guy (his last name, father's profession, town, etc.) and asked if I could try and contact his local police as I was the only Brit really around at 3am. So I phone up the Cambridge police, steaming drunk trying to explain all this info we precariously had. I found out the next day they'd managed to track him down and when the police got there he was literally about to hang himself.

    Pretty fucking weird to have saved someone's life!

    You need a "Serendipity At Its Best" award for that, sir.

The same way I'm not going to start wearing ties, I'm *also* not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. Because THAT is what 'acting professionally' results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways."

    Speaking from a purely Policing Perspective I bet they were thinking, "Fucking wonderful. A drunk informant, getting information third party, from people in different time zones about a suicidal male. A dream come true" XD

    After looking at the chat box this morning, I had to work out how to manually assign the "Complete A Song" achievement to Ste. This involved finding the relevant database table, looking to see what was required, locating Ste's database user iD, locating the "Complete A Song" achievement ID, working out the unix timestamp for today when it turned midnight, and then applying it.

    vBulletin really should have a way where you can just manually assign achievements through checkboxes, stupid thing!

    You could put "Rewrite Vbulletin" in your list of "things to do when we build a time stopper" to make your work day easier

    Aww, I sung a whole song in the chatbox way back when we used to have it but never got the 'cheeve for it. Guess I'll have to try again now it's back.
    For he did not know / That beyond the lake he called home / Lies a deeper, darker ocean green / Where waves are both wilder / And more serene / To its ports I've been / To its ports I've been.
