View Full Version : Euro lottery
O.k. it's estimated at 100,000,000 quid this week (can't do the pound sign ż)
what would you do with it ?
sort out the family with enough money so that they could live happily everafter
10 million to each of the 2 local main hospitals
10 million to each of the 2 schools my kids go to
(not that they'd be going there for much longer !)
A fabulous home in the sun
As many cars boats etc. as I wanted
Rell the bosses where to stick their job ,after I have received the cheque of course
made sure all my good mates in work no longer had a mortgage or loan to pay off
And finally 85p to the wife,
Her bus fare back home :D :D
>>Rell the bosses
oops should say Tell the bosses
>And finally 85p to the wife,
>Her bus fare back home
linesman...........back home from where??
Has she left you???
I'd most of that except the wife thing (you rotter) and the school (no kids).
I'd also be an employer. The 2,000 quid a day interest would be more than enough to pay for:
... and give me plenty of time to SHOP with the rest of the interest! :D
I'd buy a football club, as yer do. Say, Man U', then have our garden wall fixed as its been getting me down as I never touched it. It was already wobbly. Then I'd send the family on a round the world tour and put my feet up on the table and eat cereals from a large bowl.
Then i'd make a whopping big donation to a well-known leading party.... thats in power;-)and it will keep them and Man U at the top, while I watch the bloody telly and climb over our front wall, (newly repaired!) in peace!!!!
>>put my feet up on the table and eat cereals from a large bowl.
Easily pleased then Beebs?
What always amazes me is, the fairly large number of people who win huge amounts saying
"It won't change me".
Chance to dream, dont normally do it but got a ticket today.
I haven't won any large amounts, the odd 100 on Ernie, but did get a legacy of 90,000 quids. Yes it did change my life, I was able to do all those things I have always promised myself. Decent holiday for the past 5 years being the ost enjoyable, and a secure retirement. Well for a couple more years anyway..:D :D
Why don't we get a pound sign now?
Hi Ralph & Everybody :)
The most I`ve won is ż1,000 on Ernie but will play the lottery tomorrow
Let you know if I win :^O :^O
>Why don't we get a pound sign now?
That's a good question?
I only noticed it for the 1st time yesterday. The pound sign types as a pound sign but in the preview comes out as a question mark.
Has anyone told Max yet? I was going to but it might distract them from fixing the email alerts. :^O
Some twit in the office has set our forum language as English(US) I read somewhere that is what your keyboard prints if it is set to English(US)
The new VNU pound signs!
Maybe Max is American and has set us to the wrong side of the pond.:D
My keyboard was US English and my @ was "
It was easily changed,
Thankyou to my son :D
What would you do about the begging letters?
Would you still send them? :D
>made sure all my good mates in work no longer had a mortgage or loan to pay off
surely this generosity is extended to forum mates?:|:D
Though its a mind blowing amount to win. Its probably enough to give most people heart failure. Oh well, ive got my numbers and im ready to go:D
A linesman mate:^O

I reported it a few days ago, but as always feel like I'm wasting my time. :(
As for Max, I think his e-mail address is no longer active. I got a daily "undeliverable" message back for 72 hours, then finally got a message saying it had given up trying! :^O
>>surely this generosity is extended to forum mates
Of course it is :D
I'll let you know if I win , from sunnier places of course ]:)
Linesman, I'll protect you from these beggars. Send me your address and I'll be there in a jiffy!
Dave [making pals with Linesman]
If I won a 100,000,000 quid, I guess I would spend some on wine, some on wimmin, and some on song. The rest would be wasted.
Perhaps the pound sign has gone because we should be Euros by now.

Ouch! Wash your mouth out, Nik. :p

Dave, get in the queue:D
Col [linesmans real mate]:^O
Canson, theres always a chance you might win. Thats how it works in a democracy:-)

Not too many Isrealis are going down that line at the moment.

Linesman, have you noticed how soon people are trying to get on the bandwagon?:|
Col [lost (now found again) twin]:^O:^O
>>Linesman, have you noticed how soon people are trying to get on the bandwagon
I haven't won it yet and the begging letters have started :D
> I haven't won it yet
An optimist, eh? You must be a "glass is half full" sort of guy. ;)
Do you need a financial advisor? :D
>>Do you need a financial advisor?
you'll be the first to know if I do :D
It goes by seniority so all those over 62 are first in the queue at Linesman's front door. So make way for a 63 year old.... :D :D
> Linesman, have you noticed how soon people are trying

You little liar Col! :^O
Stick with me Linesman, I'll act as your secretary and shield you from the begging letters. Heck, I'll even work for free on Saturdays. You can pay me half the interest on a daily rate - and you can keep the cash.
See? Not even begging.
Dave [not a sponger] :^O
Hi Ralph :)
Get ye behind me your only a young one at 63
Peter`s no chance if he`s only 60 ;)

PSsst! Its been drawn! .... Rollover:_|:_|
yer barking up the wrong tree. I think linesman must have been using us to get more mates:D:^O
The worlds biggest lottery is still at large. What do yer think, linesman?:| [not burning any bridges]:D
Oh well ,let's try again next week
wonder how many more long lost relative's appear ;-)
good fun seeing the banter here isn't it :D
Hi there linesman,
Remember me, your long lost ex ;-)
We should join forces. See you at Linesman's place for family tea tomorrow afternoon?
We can help choose the winning numbers and plan how to divvy the cash.
Dave [related to Col now, as well as Linesman] :^O
PS - I see that Glenda is trying to muscle in - but ex-girls don't count!
You lot are gonna be sorry when you realise that I'm going to win it :D
Why spend a Quid, when you can fabricate a long lost relationship :p and have a share of their winnings..
And be another ż1 better off too........
Oh, Linesman.........cooo eeeeee!!!!
Remember me??? ;-)
> Peter`s no chance if he`s only 60 ;)
Get thee behind me Satan
For Christ's sake I'm not yet 60, well not until 27 days have passed, so wash your mouth out and ask for absolution before buying my birthday card. :^O
Hi Peter :)
Just breaking you in gradually to the sound of the BIG 60. Just a thought will there be time to read cards while entertaining the Ladies ;) :D
Absolution is that with or without Custard :^O :^:
>>I haven't won any large amounts, the odd 100 on Ernie, but did get a legacy of 90,000 quids.
Well Helloooooooo Ralph ;) You never did say, but are you married by any chance :D :D
Only joking Ralph.
I've got my eye on Peter's millions ;)
(Don't tell anyone, but he's realy Stringfellow).

Very devious. If I read you right, your suggesting the 'dynamic duo' like Batman and RobinB-)
Maybe Glenda could fill in as, Catwoman:D
As the programme used to say .... "Same time! Same place! (next week)
Col:^O a part of the dynamic duo[not dressed up like Rodney and Delboy]
>>>Ouch! Wash your mouth out, Nik.
Honest truth. I have two wallets. One without Pounds Sterling in it, and one without Euros in it. Wherever I am I have to turn to my dear wife and say "Sorry Darling, but you will have to settle the bill, I don't have a bean on me.":D:D
> "Sorry Darling, but you will have to settle the bill, I don't have a bean on me."
Do you still use beans where you are then? ;\

How could you say that? I'm not devious. We are family now and must make sure our inheritance isn't squandered by brother Linesman. Let's face it, he screwed up by picking the wrong numbers this week. He needs us!
Catwoman Glenda can take over my original role as secretary and deal with the begging letters.
Dave [honest as the day is long, and truly family to Lottery winners]
> Catwoman Glenda can take over my original role as
> secretary and deal with the begging letters.
I think you are assuming, wrongly, that Glenda isn't sending the begging letters. I won 10 pounds on the lottery last weekend and emailed Glenda to tell her. Thunderbird after the 1st one blocked her all requests for a sub. I never thought Thunderbird could block so many emails over 24 hrs. :^O
I'm busy at the moment but...........
Watch this space...
>>>I'm busy at the moment but...........
Pssst! so am IB-)
holy cow batman! [er, Dave]
Awwww, bless you look lovely Col ;)
Right now Peter, :p
I have time to respond,
You promised me that our erotic emails would remain a secret.:8}
I must plead..
actus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea,
I actually wanted a share of your lucky windfall, to help my old Granny to set up her own business in the red light district of Belfast, (Do they have one??)?:|
Since you declined help, I have decided to turn to my long lost ex..... :x
Actually he seems a much better proposition :O, as his much BIGGER ;-) impending triumph, will go a long way to keeping me in the luxuries to which I have become accustomed. :D
If you promise not to let THIS Cat (woman) out of the bag.;-)
I will remain your
""Bit on the side" but you must pledge not to tell, or my attempts at extortion........ errr I mean sharing equally,;\may lead to nothing.
Batman and Robin are off somewhere fighting for the good of Gotham City,
Look out for the Riddler, and the Joker...
if you see them run for your life..........
Till later "BIG BOY!!" ;-)
Forget the comic book stuff - stay focussed.
>>>Do you still use beans where you are then?
Gill, but of course. Its remembering how many make five thats the problem:D
Have you noticed how the lottery peeps keep interrupting our conversation, and as for that Glenda and Peter, I have to wade thro pages to find you.]:)
> Its remembering how many make five thats the problem
Ah, now that's something I'll never forget. My dear old dad taught me that when I was younger than I can remember!
Two beans, a bean and a half, half a bean, and a bean :D
It's been passed on through the generations and still going strong! :^O
>>>Two beans, a bean and a half, half a bean, and a bean.
How could I forget, and I have been falling down stairs in Cambridge recently as well. I never did like those old vases anyway.
maybe tonight's the night ?
You got the same numbers as me then?
hope not :D
but, if I have I don't mind sharing as long as it's only us two :D
Hi Linesman :)
I know it`s not the right Forum but have you got CA`s EZ Antivirus on your comp.:)
Hi jal jal
No I haven't I use avg
But I see you can get a years free trial for ez
will ave to have a dig around to see what it's like
Avg throws a wobbly with e mail scanning occasionaly ,and updates can go awol
Are you trying ez?
downloading as we speak as they say
won't install yet until I have a look at any reviews
>> EZ antivirus (eTrust)
Hi jal jal and Linesman, just noticed you 2 discussing EZ, perhaps you should take a look at this thread first:
Let me know your thoughts ?:|
Hi Linesman :)
I`ve already got it but it went off yesterday & it said it was out of date but it had still 2yrs to run so I uninstalled it using the EZ AV uninstall then I re-installed with the CD provided but it never came back so I E-mailed CA EZ-Av & they said it was down to a Fatal Error 303 or something like that & would send a Patch which they did & it`s up & working again except the RealTime bit that sits on the Taskbar so that you can run the scan & update the AV & quarantine things etc.
I just thought you might know how to get it back on the Taskbar if you had got it
Sorry for the long winded details
>>Let me know your thoughts
thanks for the warning anne r
just deleted the download
I have a look at most freebies
I tend to download ,then go looking
will have to start doing it the other way around :D
from what I have googled ,it doesn't seem too clever !
hope it goes ok for you jal jal
I think I'm gonna cry!!!!! :_| :_|
Hi Anne :)
I find CA EZAV & Firewall & PestPatrol to be very good & I deleted it without any problem.

Then on Web Support Free
Got there in the end hope this helps
Actually, from what I've read on EZ it gets good reviews, but these are users that have knowingly installed it!
God knows what's going on with poor Anndims situation ?:|
I wonder if a worm could cause this?
I have a headache! :_|
Hi Gill :)
Don`t be in tears my love your making me fill up :_|:_| :_|
:^O:^Ojal youre a natural:^O
Here's another one:
:_| :_| :_|
> :^O:^Ojal youre a natural:^O
I agree. A natural dickhead :D
Only a dickhead would introduce a PC problem in the Off Topic forum. If it was a newbie excuses could be accepted but Jal you should know better. I don't want any excuses Jal just accept you're completely non compos mentis. ]:)
You don't have to be so crude and rude, Peter. :D
Jal, Peter's under the impression that you need his permission before posting anything on this forum. ]:)
(Think) What a prat! :D
Hi Peter :)
I put in here because I new Linesman had got CA PestPatrol but I did say it was the wrong forum. I admit to failure
But as your practically 60 I suppose I can over look your cutting remarks while I have my Horlicks to calm my nerves :^O :^O
jal (Reprimanded) :_| :_|
would you take a bullet for me darling?
Of course I want d/heads to ask for permission to post daft questions here. I don't have to make a decision I just paste this forums stickys. :D
>>1) Please choose one of our other forums to ask for computing advice or discuss IT stories.
>>2) Please keep the discussion constructive – we only delete posts if we feel we have to so don’t force us to do it.>>
Gill do I need to paste anything more? :^O
:O Oh my God!!!! Peter, you're transmorphing into JR. ARGGHHHH.
How dare you :x
For Christ's sake it was only a few lines and I've never pasted it before. I haven't saved it in Word for future pastings and I'm still here:D
Gotcha! :^O :^O :^O
Where's Noel Edmunds? He was here a minute ago!
Noel.... Cooeee, Noel... where are you? That's not the Gotcha, that's the Blobby!
Sorry, Peter, you can't trust anyone these days. Noel.... put that down!!!!!
Now I have you where I want you.
Deal or no deal ]:)
No deal, Peter. What I said about SP2 still stands!
I notice here that inane banter is fine when it suits. Strange how it warrants sniping comments if it's between other people.
Sorry, I thought it was allowed in the OTF. There was no-one else around at 2.30 am and I was lonely. :_|
> Sorry, I thought it was allowed in the OTF. There

I shall quote you on that Gill.
It was the bantering to me that Gill was talking about not the filthy leecherous interpretation of her comments you arrived at. :^O
> It was the bantering to me that Gill was talking

Don't flatter yourself there Peter. Contextually she was replying to my comment.
Filthy, lecherous??? Whatever gave you that idea?
