Digital sucks

Postby MrCat » Oct 14th, '18, 23:54



I've had a tragedy, all my digital magic is gone, a massive mutha lode. As some might say.

Does anyone have up the ante by lovely Martyn by any chance. I've noticed someone has done it on YT now,............

What I'm really niffed about tho is digital technology and the instant lack of a massive library of material that's just, well, all gone. I'm more gutted than any of you could possibly believe right now.

Actually, you probably could.

I'm very sad.

4 coins through table, no gimmicks, what a killer, I had the full (I'm sure it was like 45 minute) vid somewhere, I can remember half of it or the dudes name now. Oh I'll go no further into my mystery. All my killer magic is gone now.

I won't even talk about extreme burn and plastic notes with windows, it may have been covered it's been so long since I've been here.

I've been away for a while but I'm kind of coming back and well, that's just absolutely gutting.

I thought DVD's were a thing of the passed but boy I'm glad to have some now. But I'm lacking some proper vintage material. I guess I can find it again if I try.

How is everyone?

I'm a bit sad but geting over it slowly. I know I can do better. :) Or something like that. I remain positive yet weeping at the same trime.

Phew .... thank goodness for that ;)

I read your post this morning, before I went to work and I really felt for you .... I'd be gutted if that happened to me :(

Glad you're sorted :)

QUESTION:
If we can sue McDonalds for making us fat and cigarette companies for giving us cancer; why can't we sue Smirnoff for all the ugly gits we've sh*gged ??

Haha yea thanks for your thoughts moonbeam! :D

It was late at night, a few wee drams had been had, and my 'nephew of sorts' who's out in the merchant navy just now wanted a reminder on good old 'Up The Ante', still my fave to this day as you can string it out with great banter, it last for ages and looks frigging amazing with the final reveal haha...I searched my massive and massively disorganised HD's for it but not having referenced it for ages the search came up fruitless using all keywords I could think of at the time.

The next morning I re-apraised the situation, dredged my memory and no recollection of tampering with the backup drive for many years, and Lo....ooooof, thank the gods for that. I can't tell you how mortified I was, not to much for the theoretical monetary value of that folder haha, but the prime pieces I wouldn't even be able to find again online probably haha.

The funniest thing, my search revealed a folder called magic with not a lot in it...I must have stopped it before completion because it was in a folder called.... yep...'magic'... deep within a needlessly and rediculously un-neccessary bunch of sub folders.

What a numpty. However, it brought me back here and I've missed you guys and gals :D
It's good to be home.

Oh yes, additional: between us we remembered all the nuances and things in the end and he totally baffled the sh... out of one of the wee recruits hahaha, we were both delighted. Martyn if you're out there still, I still bow to you as genius.
He flies commercial airlines when he not inventing Insane magic haha, what a dude.
