For the reasons noted in the dearly departed "What pisses you off?" thread, contributions to the old "What made you happy today?" thread are officially banned. Only misery is permitted on Nick's ... except in this new thread. So please share the things that made you happy, apart from my moderating of course.

So where is the miserable mods thread, I got plenty of dirt on that right now 😉

But what made me ridiculously happy today was getting my eyebrows waxed! OMG the feeling of freedom!

Am I the only one who secretly hoped the original "what you made happy today" thread would reach 1,000 pages? Razz

D'ya still reckon the COVID thread will reach 1000?

At the current rate, it'll take much more than another 2 years. Shocked

1000 feels a long way away.

At least this way it gets to be the reigning champion. Laughing

People need to learn to appreciate the down moments more, anyway.

Agreed. Life is suffering, pain and horror, and then you die. What's the problem with that? Razz

I eventually found the woman of my dreams, but you have to slay a few dragons before finding the princess. Laughing

Took me a while to figure out that it's common values, not common interests that are most important. If you can't find that then find someone who you can handle their annoyances and they can handle yours Very Happy

So, being happy.

I recently noticed that all the music I had on the home PC had vanished, which didn't make me happy. Then I remembered I had an old iPod nano in the car, I'd bought it at cash converters years to use in the new (at the time) car as it had built in connection for an iPod but not Samsung.

Pulled it out of the glovebox, connected it to the PC and with a bit of help from google ripped all the music back onto the PC. OK, so the file names are all fungool, but I can fix that another time.

I don't think so, and I hope it doesn't.

The more pages we accumulate in a short space of time will mean the situation is getting worse.

This is how many pages of content has been posted on the COVID thread on a monthly basis:

January 2020 = 6 pages
February 2020 = 9 pages
March 2020 = 75 pages
April 2020 = 69 pages
May 2020 = 39 pages
June 2020 = 3 pages (as of today)

Plot that on a line chart against the cases in Aus.

As far as I can see, there are three threads ahead of it in this forum, but all three were dumping grounds for thousands of different topics. It'll still overtake at least one of them, probably within the next three months.

The one single-topic thread ahead of it was started by you in another forum.
