Looks like Barco will be away at a crucial time of the season then.

Not a test as such, as currently have 537* ignored threads so it's working alright


*now 538
Ooh, I thought I was prolific with 236* ignored threads. Fantastic feature. Would be interesting to see some stats.

The Spanish entry has caused quite a stir over here due the title and language. It's called Zorra, which means vixen but also slut. The lyrics go something like "If I go out alone, I'm a slut. If I'm having fun, I'm even sluttier."

It's obviously a bit of middle finger to male chauvinists and an attempt to reclaim the word. Predictably, the right wing press and politicians are clutching their pearls and declaring it a national embarrassment.

Read about that - seems a bit of a storm in a teacup. On the other hand, there are threats of boycotts because of another competing country ( who isn't in Europe anyway ! ) and it isn't Russia.

Too soon? A good test of the 'ignore thread' feature?

Anyway, here's Windows95man...




I like Cha Cha Cha from 2023, still listen to it. Not quite sure what the f*** that is for 2024, but it's a solid no from me.

Good to see Jurgen Klopp lining up his next career, though
