I wanted to post in the shoutbox about the boom-boom issue, but got a "too long" message. I know I tend to be somewhat wordy - e.g. I can't do quick texts, and sometimes end up writing emails and then texting the recipient that I've done that.

This thread does give me more space, so this is the unabbreviated version of what I wanted to say:

The boom-booming does seem to be random, for both the boom-er and the boom-ee, which can have unexpected consequences. On Monday night, I went to bed and was watching a short video on my laptop. I was listening via my earphones. But I fell asleep before the video had finished, still with my earphones in, so my laptop was still "live".

I was awakened at some ghastly hour in the dead of night by a BOOM-BOOM, Good grief! That was a test of how quick my nervous system could ramp up the adrenaline! (Very fast, as it turned out.)

 

[Where has my favourite "fool" emoticon gone? It would have been perfect for this post.]

Libby that made me chuckle! I programmed it to switch your laptop back on, crank up the volume to max, extra bass then B:ouro::ouro:M B:ouro::ouro:M! Bim the developer is stumped, it works every time for him, but I have the same intermittent experience the same on his site as I do here.

Oh no, I love that fool smiley, I will check and reinstall him.

If anyone finds a good smiley they want adding, please do share it in a Smiley request topic and we can add it for you.

Need to get back to the emoticon categories this weekend, plus we could do with move Millennium smilies too as Darlene pointed out.

Someone help me, I'm surrounded by a bunch of fool smiley hungry people...I honestly didn't notice it missing.  :197:

I have however noticed the dragon is very missing.  Now we have dancing or sleeping vegetables, and one, either a turnip or garlic is blowing it's top ~ :eggplant-smiley-emoticon::lemon-smiley-emoticon::onion-smiley-emoticon::raddish-smiley-emoticon:

Oh, and now the dancing banana is only at Christmas.  What is happening around here?  :scared-alien-monster-smiley-emoticon:

 

I haven't yet heard a  B :ouro: :ouro: M   :ouro: :ouro: M  yet...I want a  B :ouro: :ouro: M    B :ouro: :ouro: M
