We'll be at the big table under the TV in the raised area. Let me know if I should look out for you!

I'm hosting a 'paired poker' tournament game at mine on Sat March 21st if anybody is interested. 7:30 for 8pm start. Choose your own pairs.

What is paired poker? Play in pairs, one partner completes an orbit (~8 hands) then switches and the other plays an orbit with the same stack.

Why? It allows you learn more about each other's play styles. Plus, it's chaos and fun 😂

£10 buy in, unlimited rebuys for first 2 hours if knocked out.

Let me know if you're game!

Apropos of nothing I would like to remind folks that you can filter things in your timeline on your end. You can do hard filters where you won't see the content but you can also do soft filters where you will see that something was filtered and you can check which filter and who posted before expanding it.

There are areas of things you may not be able to handle but it is not reasonable to ask others to CW, you still have tools to take care of yourself, if that is your intent with the request.

As a child I nearly burnt down the house, by performing a science experiment using a CRT monitor building to generate 40kv - creating an 'ion lifter'.

“Learn to code!” has its foundations in market value, it's suggested as a way up, a way out. “Learn to code” goes on your resume.

But let’s substitute a different phrase: “learn to cook.” People don’t only learn to cook so they can become chefs. Some do! But far more people learn to cook so they can eat better, or more affordably, or in a specific way. Or even sometimes because—get this—they love spending time with the person who’s teaching them.
