With the COVID restrictions now gone, I went to the world strawberry picking championships.... A woman with no legs won it, jammy c***! :strawberry:

Old #mpu34 IRC Chat

06 August 2020 - 10:56 AM

Many of us old timers will remember this place well, often occupied by the underbelly of the FME community, many a great laughs etc, profanities and mis-quotes by Tsiten's IRC bot....Well IT'S BACK!I


Got all nostalgic the other night, and just this sec finished setting everything up..... there are a few small bits to sort out, however the bulk of it is now working.


Now obviously the likes of dalNET are crap these days, and TVeps / Chatabout is no more, so talked to one of the Jackpotty lads who co-runs such a network, and everything is on there.


Server info....

raven.MircPhAnToM.net (

Port: 6667 / +6697 (SSL)

Room: #mpu34

For those who have forgotten, commands for the bot are....

!switchquote (To change the quote file)

!quote (Can also add a word to this to narrow down a particular quote you are after, like !quote strawberry)
!addquote texthere (EG: !addquote stanmarsh14 is a pervert)

HELP: BFM Scorp5 and note acceptors / BNV's

21 November 2018 - 10:11 AM

Something I am sort of new to, though I have a Red Mummy / NV8.

Been asked to deal with a Mazooma Monopoly game, flashing up a Note error 15, which I have worked out, relates to it's BNV key.

Now I know from my Red machine, the BNV needs to be matched up on the two devices, but I can not for the life of me, work out how this is done on a scorp5.

Mech in question, is a JCM EBA-PB2 (Not upgradeable for the new plastic notes that I do know), so I need help to either install the BNV code (I believe the default code will work in this case), or just disable the mech from the machine all together, although the latter option, I believe reduces the amount the hopper can take (It's on a £70JP - 30p / 50p setup at the mo).

Any ideas?

Cherish your loved ones, for you never know when they will be gone

Forgive the rather sombre tone folks, but think I best explain myself with regards to my comments on my Screen Play thread (MPU Mecca) and Facebook.

Monday morning, had to rush mum (Dawn) in to the QMC, Nottingham, with a suspect over dose.

Hell of a battle in A&E, moved to ICU, and by 7PM, we (Myself, sister, and other relations) unfortunately lost her.

Mental Health even to this day, is one of the great unknowns, and you ask yourself constantly, what could have I done to prevent this, even as her carer? Truth be told, not a clue.

All I can say as some general advice to all, is don't suffer in silence, talk to people, let the ones you most cherish and trust know you need help, and to those who can help, even a kind word for those in need can help..... sometimes amazing what this kind word can do to a person who's suffering.

At this point in time, I have absolutely no clue how to move on (Been her full-time carer for near on 20 years) or what to do next, but certainly for the next two weeks or so, not going to worry about it, though I am concerned as hell what to do with the cat, much as I love Chorlton to death, I live in a top floor flat, and next to no income for the foreseeable future.
