Too dirty, or makes no sense?

Inside fruit machines, at the back where there's a locked door, there used to be a set of controls for things like changing the payout rate, easy-play mode or (for pubs) turning the goddamed-repetitive music off. These are officially called "frig switches" and the easy-play (for testing) is hence "frig mode".


Portuguese has the best one yet: to make like a crab. You’ll understand if you’ve ever watched the front of a live crab.



Portuguese, or at least Brazilian Portuguese, is filled with delightful expressions. Who can resist an offer to come and fight with a spider?

That is one of the most convoluted yet entertaining descriptions of the workings of female genitalia that I have read. :D

For further reference most, er ‘fruit machines’ have another ‘frig switch’ above the coin slot. It will definitely adjust payout and switch to easy-play mode but in all my years I’ve never found it to turn off the repetitive music. Your mileage may vary. :wry:

Has everyone forgotten the classic 'frigging in the rigging' by the Sex Pistols?

Jesus, btrieve? We used to have to run macros to reindex the content for that regularly because if it was badly written, and you left it alone for long enough, it would drop branches from the tree and you would just lose content. That was in 1994, 25 years ago.


Well, you know Sweet William: if it’s broke, don’t fix it; call it a feature and carry on.

Doesn't matter really, he's British.

He mustn’t be part of the 100% of advertisers who back the “new policy”.

Who will Bill piss off next? Battlefront? Raging Heroes?


I don't think folk in the US appreciate quite who Bill is pissing off.. TooFatLardies, Northstar, etc. These are very significant players, not some bloke doing dodgy knock-offs in a cupboard in a railway arch workshop in Walsall.

Be interesting to see what happens this time - last one got scrubbed.

Check the details. BILL crossposted it to Crowdfunding.
