    You might have noticed that in both Greek and Cyrillic numerals the letter Qoppa stands for the number 90, hence the above numeration.

    Also, Q is a rant by itself.

    Oh, and, Synsensa, if you don't like the title, next time try and grab the thread when Valka leaves it free to be claimed.

    Rant, Tak is the new Abbadon! :p

    (For the newer people. Abbadon was an old CFC poster who quickly posted a serial thread to be the one to reach the 1000th post so he can start a new one).

    ^That's true, BJ, Ab's story has more girls.
    I deserve it. Ten months of confinement and a state of siege already.

    I think Wesley might be a little jealous of the thread title:

    The Highlord Alarak is pleased with this.


    (Yes, John de Lancie voiced Alarak in Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void ;))

    ı reject any allegation of superiority over the common herd , sorry , sorry people of CFC . ı have utterly failed to get Civ lll Plus released , while the only thing they do in Civ lV forums is talking which country will be next and sometimes they get what they want . Like a rant in itself , too ...

    It sat there for an hour before I popped in and nabbed it. You didn't apply yourself enough, my young crustacean.

    I use 2 online supermarkets, and have managed to get a delivery about every month over the lockdown which has almost kept me going. To get this I check the delivery slots quite frequently, as they do not stay up long and about 98% of the time I go to the site there are none available. Both supermarket websites make me click around checking different date ranges to establish they are all booked up. This is after nearly a year of this. I am not the only person doing this, I wonder how many clicks nationally that decision has meant, it has to be in the billions or tens of billions. It is not like there is any advantage to anyone of not just saying "No Slots Available".

    You'd think after a year they'd have hired more drivers and pickers as well.

    Thread title blows. Subtitles ftw. Voice-dubbing is the mark of the beast.

    Here they have been on a massive hiring spree and have managed to increase their volume spectacularly, I cannot fault them for that. But the web site should be the easy thing to update when everyone has to stay at home. My parents, who are at high risk, have always been able to get enough, mostly 1 a week.

    I am not ascribing any of this to altruism. The "traditional" supermarkets, who are the ones with websites, have been losing ground to the "discount" supermarkets like Lidl and Aldi for years, I reckon they think coronavirus is a godsend as they totally dominate now.

    I do my grocery orders by phone. Online + delivery is a myth here, so I wish Walmart would STFU about it. You can order online but have to pick it up yourself, which is impossible if you don't drive.

    Yes, but I protest against the extremely low quality, e.g. translating ‘a gauche!’ as ‘turn right!’.

    translation can be bad
    but once you are able to see and judge that, you should not read the subtitles anymore.
