Don't understand what young pheasants are talking about.
What a fowl thing to say.

This is 2015 patient cost of the shot.
It would be interesting to see the impartial scientific study that justifies the extra cost between $49 and $126.

I wonder if it is the same as the difference between Sainsburys and Waitrose supermarkets? It is said the main purpose of Sainsburys is to keep the riff-raff out of Waitrose.

(Apologies if the analogy does not make sense in OZ).

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

You know you are middle aged when you just got a shot of 'Prevnar 13' (Our latest purchase $100 each).  :smiley-confuse:
I had mine a couple of years ago for free. (Another benefit of the NHS).

It would be Coles/Woolworths/Aldi  and  David Jones Stores  here in Victoria, OZ.

You still have Woolworths? They went bust here, about 5 years ago.

You're middle-aged when you actually had active MySpace account.

It had been that long since MySpace was decent, and some of my friends were on it with me.  I don't know if my account is still up but I changed so the background music were of crickets.

You know you are middle-aged when you go  to clean the mouse ball and wonder where the mouse cable went and where is the PS2 socket on the computer.

LOL :D

i just found THIS. remember the days of loading a program from a cassette tape? this project should be Arduino compatible, with a bit of thought. if i could find my old cassette tape player/recorder, it would be a neat nostalgia project. :D

Z80 evaluation board and VIC20...
I think the encoding was called Manchester ...

I remember punch cards and cassette storage and feel nostalgia for neither.

Some of the die-hard railway modellers use the chads from punch cards to add individual bricks to model buildings.

Not sure where they get them from nowadays.

Florida?

You might have to be middle aged to get the reference.

IIRC there were only a few spare ones in Florida - that's why there was a row.

OMG

Repaired card punches and readers for many years.
Each time I left those friging punches, my hands were cut and bleeding.
We punched more than 100,000 cards per day.

I feel old.



No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.
