Were you signed in to your Google account when it went pear shaped?


Yeah I think so.

Just tried everything to sort it.

I think a nice hammer or my boot will come in handy next! :shoot:


Uninstall and then reinstall, your settings should have been saved.


I will try that later cheers Stu.

I noticed a lot of people have had the same problem with it on the net.

Just a thought to leave you and others reading this thread with tonight.

Forget about piddling little Triassic reptiles like Tanystropheus and a modern example the giraffe - imagine being one of the largest sauropod dinosaurs - with a neck over 15 metres long - that takes some bloody efficient physiology/anatomy to function! :kinell:

A bit of deep sea news.

One of my favourite deep sea denizens Alepisaurus ferox - the awesome (and cannibalistic) Lancetfish - one has recently washed ashore on a New Plymouth beach.

The incredible glowing nudibranch genus Phylliroe - the sea slug that swims like a fish and hunts down jellies.

A wonderful example of convergent evolution. :smilin:

Yes Stu the Cassowary is like a brief glimpse into theropod prehistory (although on a far smaller scale).

Just imagine hearing this outside your window at night. :doomed:

Can't sleep so before I go and watch the awesome Saga in The Bridge III a few more palaeo links that may be of interest to some.

The first is an interesting little story about a graduate babe blowing a Corythosaurus! :leer: :gigglesnshit:

Some fascinating new information on the genome of the world's most indestructible animals - the incredible Tardigrades.

A very nice article on the bite of Allosaurus - it's head was basically a swinging axe with teeth. :doomed:

A great BBC article on Tardigrades and a brand new one on the strange lifeforms that live at great depths in the Earth's crust.

Good news.

Why the empirical fact of Evolution is finally beginning to defeat the utter bullshit of Creationism in America. :thumbsup:

A few other recent evolutionary articles from Slate (although the topical Thanksgiving one is from 2012).

If they finally find the great queen's tomb intact it would probably be the biggest archaeological discovery since Howard Carter described 'wonderful things' all those years ago.

Which is rather ironic, as it would have been hidden in plain sight for almost a century.
