Title: I appear to be back ?
Post by: Techno II on 01 October 2020, 05:07:11 PM
Who pressed a button he shouldn't have then ?......CLANG !!!!! =)
Twerp !

Let's see if this works. X_X

Starting again from scratch.....At least I'll get my next promotion a good way before Will.  ;D ;D ;D

Hello..My name is Phil....And I make toy soldiers for your edification....You Oiks....

Good grief....How am I going to EVER catch up with all the stuff I haven't replied to.

Trouble is I've got change my password, so Leon doesn't what it is......AND sort out my personal details, AND make a new avatar......It'll be the same.....Just a different colour....(Maybe.)

Back soon.  ;)

Cheers - The Welsh Git

How can we be sure? Should we demand proof?

Brilliant!   Although, being Welsh, and all that, perhaps he is the Once and Future King?   Welcome back, Phil, we have missed you!

You know, I feel like the balance of the universe has been restored.

Techno is back among us.

Let joy and mirth be unconfined!

Hello Techno ll , or should we call you T2?, or possibly T double lower case L

You will find the forum a friendly pace with much erudite wisdom, banter and down right silliness.

You say you make toy soldiers , HMMM we used to have a bloke here that claimed to do that.  The toxins in the putty got to him and he went a bit  ~X( ~X(, and disappeared. :)

Make sure that doesn't happen to you.

Anyway I must go now, I have to get a box of plasters posted by Amazon to a friend.  :D

Hello Techno ll , or should we call you T2?, or possibly T double lower case L 

Maybe it's just me, but the name looks incomplete? Shouldn't it be Techno ll Magnifico?

Anyway, welcome back! Hope you had a good rest, too. Don't wait another ten years for the next one.

I didn't mean for you to take this so literally....






Title: Re: I appear to be back ?
Post by: Techno II on 02 October 2020, 07:29:55 AM
Thanks, Gents ! :)

It's really good to be back.....Reinvigorated, but still as barking as before.

Davy....the only proof I can offer, is that I dropped the heavy(ish) metal plate that covers the water meter on the ball of my left hand, causing a nice sized blood blister, a couple of days ago...(I cut that open with a 10A. :D).....Sound like anyone you know ? (That DID smart !)

Mark.....That would be great..... ;) Though I don't think I've quite finished the old lot yet.  :-\

Nobby.....Techno the White ?.....Probably not.....But I have at last managed to get my hair cut...So there has been change. ;) I like to think that I don't look quite so much like the wild man of Borneo anymore.....But still particularly scruffy. X_X

Spent the last few days trying to remember how I used to wire up the 'nice' stereo, so I could use the graphic equalizer. Think I've almost got there. Only thing that doesn't want to play is the cassette deck for some reason. (I'm probably missing something particularly obvious.)

I can only wind it up to 'one and a half', otherwise the house starts shaking. ;D

Our nice plumber friend has fixed the leak in the loo in the big barn. No wonder I couldn't stop/slow the leak by slapping loads of putty around the 'L joint'.....it wasn't that that was leaking. =)

Cheers - Phil

I hear on the grape vine that his first new commission is making HR staff. So it should be Techno II - This Time It's Personnel

Great to have one of the forum luminaries back!

Hope you had a good break, this place was quiet without you - mostly because the Oiks couldn't decide who they were going to pick on - balance has been restored.

Welcome back sir!

It is so good to see Techno II back.
(https://media.tenor.com/images/58c7b68f8186bcfcdaf039ca79254908/tenor.gif)

This will become a milestone in the Forum's History. Old heads will look at cadets and say "yes, but I knew Techno II before he got upgraded."

Here comes the new Phil, same as the old Phil! :D

Techno takes up heroic air guitar pose and does his version of Pete Townshend's windmilling power chords......(Skinning the fingers of his right hand against the imaginary strings, obviously)

Thanks again, Guys.

Ah yes, I should have used the "red eye" filter. That's the trouble with flash photography.

As to the facial structure - camera adds 10lbs and all that, y'know!

Didn't Gandalf also do this game cheat? He came back after a Bleaching accident say he'd beaten up a large Demon. Sounds like a load of Balrog to me.

Post by: Techno II on 06 October 2020, 07:33:06 AM
But those ones won't bleed !

Mind you, as you say, a few bandages round them and they'd look perfectly normal.

Anyone suggest a good red paint, or will I have to mix my own to get a decent substitute for the blood ?

Cheers - Phil ;)

Phil found this recipe for fake blood for you :-

2/3 cup Corn Syrup
1/3 cup Water
5 Tablespoons Corn Starch
3 to 5 Teaspoons Red Food Coloring
2 or 3 Drops Green Food Coloring
1 Drop Peppermint extract, if desired.

So your artifical fingers can look right  #:-S

Thanks, Ian  :)......Now you've written that down, it sounds very much like a 'recipe' that I used in my very early teens !
(I think I used golden syrup.....red food colouring.....and if I remember correctly, a drop of blue, rather than the green.)

Thanks, Phil, she  is doing pretty well although mobility remains a problem. Of course in the ‘rona age many have limited mobility.

I didn't realize they had Tate and Lyall  Golden syrup in ancient Mesopotamia.  Although the quite on the tin is attributed to about 1000 BC. so I suppose it might have been  :)
