It's awful, I've had to interact with family, do jobs around the house, read books, watch tv and have conversations with people that extend beyond "hi, gl" and "gg, wp"... it's tough. I worry about Horace though, how's Horace gonna cope? Did Charlie think about that when he neglectfully left his poor defenceless server behind so he could head off on a jolly?!
How come Horace isn't here?

OMG - a 'Normal' life. Bet, you think it's going fine until you find yourself in front of your PC about to log in for a much needed game or twenty on Apterous and suddenly it dawns on you - you CAN'T!!!

As for Horace, he's probably huddled up by the fire drinking copious cups of KOHRISCL. I'm just glad I have unused Countdown calendars - puzzles every day, and several half completed Countdown books.

Another game for your pleasure generated by Kountdown. Patterns will be 3, 4, and 5 vowels for the letters. Random.org determined the numbers game will be two six smalls, a two large, and a four large, in that order. Conundrum made by me (hopefully it's OED valid)

1.IOOHLBNYS
2.RAKUGAMAM
3. 2 4 5 7 8 10 Target: 134
4. OFOYALENE
5. TLTEOAGNR
6. 1 3 5 5 6 9 Target:181
7. DBTTIEEEL
8. EOEOISXDD
9. 1 2 4 5 50 100 Target: 277
10. WQRIAIGPD
11. HRUIWPEON
12. EUPJOUBRA
13. OEUMNFDSR
14. 6 10 25 50 75 100 Targets: 851
15. ANURECPIE

When it was up it was up, when it was down it was down, when it was only half-way up it was simultaneously both up and down in a weird quantum entanglement kind of thingy.

Selected declarations from that game, Johnny.

Round 9, hopefully the only method (haven't checked) is (50 x 75 - 100 x 3) x 7 / 25
Round 15, is the word I always guess CEOANTHUS for but it's actually CEANOTHUS according to lexplorer

Not going to pretend I had a go at those letters, they look pretty dirty.

Just wondering if it's down atm?

Can't even get to the front page on either Chrome or IE, so don't think it's the recent Java problem.

The "Is it down for everyone or just me?" page says it's just me.

Colour me mildly aroused.

But mostly clicking refresh hoping apterous stops being a page so white that purgatory's ordered a dulux chart.
