Oi Phier - do I recall "your mate Dave" (and totally not you) bought a cheap Spotify premium membership because people selling their spare slots on a family subscription?

I've signed up to the family one and I want to get let my brother use it, but it's a Lux subscription and he's in Ireland.

Any idea how to circumvent that?

Yeah, Dave still hasnt bothered to use it mind. He should really get on that and see what all the kids are fussing about.
I didnt think location mattered, but ive no idea. I can ask the head of the familia and get back to you.

Anyone else following the RTE secret producer thing?

RTE person tweeting anonymously, absolutely annihilating the place, how creativity is stifled, money is squandered, staff are zombies, training is inadequate, anything that involves more than the bare minimum of work is treated with suspicion and done under strong protest (if it's done atall).

I worked there 2003-2006 and recognise every bit of it.

twitter.com/rtesecretpro. Hundreds of tweets now but worth a browse. Stories about the demise of Podge & Rodge followed by the relentless pushing of Craig Doyle as a chat show presenter are bizarre.

Eucrid posted it in some thread alright so was looking at at it over the weekend. Sounds like a lot of places I know but ramped up a bit.

Interesting to notice that the first thing he did was start off by blaming unions for the same thing that I've seen and heard from others, that they just stifle the ability to get anything done as they see everything as a threat

Jesus! have you had your kid yet? Our first was pretty much as good a child as you could ask for but the thoughts of having two of them at the same time brings out the cold sweats

id say having twins would be easier than having two close together. my sister had her first two 10 months apart and it was like watching someone live a nightmare :lol:

a newborn and a 10 month old nearly walking and wrecking the place. at least with twins they're both at the same stage

nice one :)

boy and a girl. instant microwave family

they're a little early, but not too much (for twins). being very well looked after in the hospital.
they're tiny. they do the footprints on a card in the hospital. seen one of a regular size baby after we got ours. looked like godzilla stamped on the card compared to ours

no idea what to expect from here on in
