Morning ILN

We could do with a post about Kluivert. Go on. You know you want to.

I generally keep posts about Toon news on Look At This... unless it's something big.I've already posted news of our interest and i shall follow up if the situation changes.

ILuvNUFC said...

Is there an English version?

mohammad said...

Hi dear:you have a intersting blog.i enjoy it.good luck.if you want to use smilies in your posts come to my weblog!.bye

mmChronic said...

Can you not read Farsi (or whatever it is) like? :)

I'm quite curious as to his method for putting smileys in Blogger comments though. I'm off to learn Farsi.

ILuvNUFC said...

EH? How come the answer came before Mo's question?
Suppose this comment won't show up until 2-30 anyway.Or something.

Dogs said...

Is anyone else getting comments in the wrong order? Replies to comments that haven't appeared yet?

Nice to see we have international readership. From Iran no less. Are you mossad? (gulp) - that's an in-joke round here.
We can't read your blog as we are unable to speak any foreign languages due to the poor educational system in this country and we don't like the French. Or Germans.
We speak a bit Nordic though. Am gaan yem.

mmChronic said...

Yeah the commenting appears broke - there's a few where the index page has a comment count but the post page has nowt.

So you are asking the Iranian if he is a Jew then? That's our Dogs - offensive as ever. :)

Dogs said...

I'm asking him if he/she is an undercover Israeli agent.

If so, it's Bungers you're after. And he's left the country.

mmChronic said...

That's alright tehn. I'm sure they won't be offending by 'Are you a Jew spying on Iran' question then! :)

Talking of Iranian spies - Fox News were reporting two Iranian agents were arrested in Baghdad with bomb stuff. If I can find a link on a proper new source I'll stick it up.

Dogs said...

OK. For the benefit of our international readership.

I'm just being a typical English paranoid xenophobe who assumes that anyone from any part of the rest of the world is either a spy, a terrorist or a ninja. We don't get many visitors in these parts.

The views I have expressed here are in no way representative of Newlinks or NewLinks members who probably wish that they never let me join in the first place.

And it's definitely Bungers you're looking for.

mmChronic said...

Here's a novelty - a comment relevant to the post instead of whinging about stuff or offending people of other nations! :)

The article says the word charver was created in Newcastle in the 90s. I know for a fact this was in use in the early 80s.

New Links - more accurate than the Evening Chronicle. Sometimes.

Anonymous said...

A better read than the chronicle aswell.

Dogs said...

Greetings Lisa - see mC hasn't given you membership yet.

What about EQual Opportunites mC?

I notice mC spent the whole of yesterday arguing with me on New Links and various other people at Space Hardware.

Marvellous multi-tasker or work shy fob?

BykerSink said...

You've got to love you guys. You even link me in your comments.

As always I appreciate it. Must get around to making you my blog of the week - which always stretches to a month because I can't be arsed to change it.

By the way, is anyone else having problems with blogger right now. I was particularly proud of my F 9/11 review last night and then just after I had finished it, checked it etc I lost it. Flukily I managed to get it back but not until I had had several heart attacks.

And get it right. The are only Mossad when they claim to be Al Qaeda. They bomb things, the world blames the Arabs, and the Israelis giggle behind their hands ana accept more American military hardware.

It's the way of the world.

Strangely no meniton of Israel at all in F 9/11.

mmChronic said...

No one can be prevented from signing up to Blogger - certainly not by me. So nowt to with me then. Unless of course you meant you want Lisa to post? I suppose we need someone extra with Bungers away and you too busy whinging/arguing to post much - but I very much doubt LIsa would want to leave herself open to teh abuse we give each other on here :)

As for multitasker or workshy fob. That'll be the former. I booked in shitloads of good, working code yesterday. More than you wrote. Probably.

I'll show you my latest build tonight of the solo project I'm doing for a major banking group. When you are the only coder on the project it's difficult to hide if you're doing nowt.

Anonymous said...

I will leave the arguing to the two of you,
I don't think anyone else would want to get involved once you start!!
I am just a reader and have an input when it takes my fancy!

Lisa

mmChronic said...

Lisa, I suppose Dogs is right for a change. You should do the 2 minute sign up so you can at least comment with a proper login.

BS: We are just addicted to linking I reckon. Blog of the week would be nice - we're a better read than all your previous ones! ;)

Blogger is badly borked and has been for a few days. The status page reckoned they'd fixed whatever it was. We know different.

mmChronic said...

I've just reread Mo's comment about smileys earlier. It was the posts he was talking about not comments. In which case we can (and do) stick whatver we like in. In fact I think Bungers did a post using Haloscan smileys a while back.

BykerSink said...

Okay got you linked up real nice.

mmChronic said...

Cheers Byker!

So is that good enough for you Dogs? We have now been linked to by a blog that was linked to from the Guardian. Quality by proxy. or something.

BykerSink said...

I had Dogs down as a Daily Mail man.

Okay okay, I'm joking.

Sorry.

mmChronic said...

He does like a male man daily if that's any good?

He made some pronouncement the other day about the Guardian being the be all and end all of blog reporting. He's not happy until we get in there.

We probably have an outside chance of that now because he is no longer sitting alone drunk in front of his PC until the small hours of the morning posting filth for us to find in the morning.

BykerSink said...

Then again, you could argue that filth is your strength.

;o)

New Links is one of my favourite blogs. I'm always amazed by the fact that despite there are so many of you contributing the standard, language used etc is very even and constant.

Good job.

ILuvNUFC said...

I noticed NewLinks was rather less smutty these days.I think a small percentage of that is due to the absence of Bungers too. ;)

mmChronic said...

Yeah - but the really weird ones we found in the mornings were always Dogs'.

Dogs said...

Just you wait until DCB gets broadband. She'll be in bed for 10:00pm and I, once more, shall be drunk in charge of midnight smut posting.

mmChronic said...

With the added advantage that it will be DCB arrested for accessing horse pr0n sites rather than yourself. Yay!

BykerSink said...

It's a dirty job but someone has to do it.

And cheers for including the Observer link.

I'll give you all fair warning when the revolution is about to start.

ILuvNUFC said...

:lol:

mmChronic said...

We'll probably be busy fighting our own Northumbrian revolution.

BykerSink said...

can we make it a civil war? Against the mackems.

mmChronic said...

I can't speak for you but I know we won't be very civil in a war with the mackems.

There are policies in place to deal with sundlind come the revolution. We will be improving the area by turning it into the world's largest land fill site.
