Cricket can be a deadly game

Two old blokes, Dave and Pete, had been friends all of their lives.
When it was clear that Dave was dying, Pete visited him every day.

One day Pete said, "Dave, we’ve both loved playing cricket ever since school. Please do me a favour: when you get to heaven, somehow you must let me know if there's cricket there."

Dave looked up at Pete from his deathbed and said, "Pete, you've been my best mate for many years. If it's at all possible, I'll do this favour for you."

Shortly after that, Dave died.

A few nights later, Pete was awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him, "Pete...., Pete...."

"Who is it," asked Pete, sitting up suddenly. "Who is it?"
"Pete... it's me, Dave"

"You're not Dave. Dave just died."
"I'm telling you, it's me, Dave," insisted the voice.

"Dave where are you?" Image result for royalty free cricket cartoons
"In heaven," replied Dave. "I have some really good news and a little bad news."

"Tell me the good news first," said Pete.

"The good news," Dave said with joy and enthusiasm, "is that there is cricket in heaven. Better yet, all of our old mates who died before me are here, too. Even better than that, we're all young again. Better still, it's always springtime and it never rains or snows. And best of all, we can play cricket all we want, and we never get tired. "And we get to play with all the Greats of the past.

"That's fantastic," said Pete "It's beyond my wildest dreams! So what's the bad news?"

"You're opening the batting next Tuesday."

Wed, May 17th 2017 2:30p   Tony Austin
I rather like the easy-to-use and familiar user interface of Microsoft’s various editing apps. Microsoft Word. for example, the most widely used document editor, the one that all others have to measure up to (and some do that very well). Microsoft Visual Studio is another favorite of mine, right up to and including the latest VS2017 edition,  most certainly a top-class IDE. Then creating and submitting blog posts there was until recently the free Microsoft Windows Live Writer (WLW), where

Interactive health visualizations
Tue, May 9th 2017 4:45p   Tony Austin
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) has some fascinating interactive data visualizations on its website. You can select a chart type (such as USA health map, tobacco visualization, Life Expectancy & Probability of Death) and adjust a wide range of parameters -- such as country, age or gender – and see a visualization for that group of selection criteria. For example, below is a life expectancy chart for both sexes combined, where those countries shown in lighter colors (

TIP - How to navigate quickly through Scientific American archives
Fri, Apr 21st 2017 3:40a   Tony Austin
For subscribers to Scientific American, see How to navigate quickly through Scientific American archives or read below. Subscribers to Scientific American are given access to every issue, in PDF format, right back to the magazine's launch in 1845. Wow! It can be quite a laborious, hit and miss process to navigate back through all those issues, particularly for the earlier years (prior to November 1921) where there are about fifty issues per year. Originally there was an issue per week, then in

Firefox browser is stuck since 2006 at file version 4.42.0.0 – Why so?
Thu, Apr 20th 2017 3:45a   Tony Austin
I have saved quite a range of Firefox installers, and there’s something that puzzles me about them Let’s start with Firefox release 1.0.3 which is indicated to be File Version 3.12.0.0 as follows: My understanding of “file version” is that the developer is supposed to register each file with a unique number that truly represents the release number, as happens with RoboForm 8.3.3 (its latest version at the time of writing): With many products, the external  “release” number and

TIP – Add Safe Mode to the Boot Menu of Windows 10 (and 8)
Wed, Feb 22nd 2017 12:45a   Tony Austin
Recently I had a PBSOD (pale blue screen of death) crash with one of my Windows 10 systems, and kept getting crashes within minutes every time after rebooting the system. Somewhat annoyingly, starting with Windows 8 Microsoft removed the old boot menu options that we were used to with Windows 7 and previous versions. Run a search like this to see the complaints about this from the Windows user community. It’s not a bad idea to modify the Windows boot settings in order to get back to the old bo

This is an update to a post originally published way back on 11 January 2010. Unfortunately, the industry of creating stupid software still is thriving in 2017. You should learn something new each and every day of your life, so I keep reminding my young grandsons. It’s a maxim that I still follow myself, in a desperate bid to keep my brain alert and defer that day when my grey matter finally degenerates into a useless pile of wobbly jelly. As an example, this morning for the first time I came

Zuver hosting is so boring!
Thu, Oct 20th 2016 9:40a   Tony Austin
Congratulations to the folk at Zuver Hosting for providing a service that is so fast and reliable that I’m getting oh so bored with receiving weekly performance reports like the one in the following screenshot: Since November 2014 I’ve experienced the same boringly good performance and reliability, week after week, and all for such a low monthly rate. Note that I’m not at all saying that there aren’t any equally good Australian web hosting companies, some of which I used previously, jus
