Aww VE..... glad to have you aboard mate.  Ellie will show you your room, get you the keys to everything (including the executive washroom), and get you all settled in.  You'll probably want a little nap after your ordeal getting here.  Just rest easy mate, we'll keep the zombie gnomes at bay while you have a little lay-down, and then we'll sort out a duty roster when you're all rested up.  We'll see how it all works out, but you'll be one of the top 5 around here.  Here's Ellie to show you around.  Rest easy, have a soak in the hot tub when you get up if you like, and let Ellie know if your hungry (we've got a little roast lordy chicken leftover, and we're expecting a shipment of cy shellfish shortly), so welcome aboard mate.





Oh caz...... can you please send more enforcers soon?  :-\    Seems we have a lot more mouths to feed down here now........ :-\   and, erm, Ellie's getting a bit restless. ???

Aw.. Thanks 8, what a nice welcome. Had a fantastic sleep.. Feel a bit like something was nibbling at me in the night?  :-\ but apart from that.. The hot tub has sorted me right out. Ready to rock and roll!  ;)

OK mate.  Ellie's the XO and "enforcer chef" around here, so just report to her.  Not a lot going on ATM to be honest.   She's just mopping up the last of the zombie gnomes that followed you here while waiting on our next meal...... :-\ erm, I mean cy to arrive.  Shouldn't have been anything disturbing your sleep. :-\   All the rats are pretty much gone, and I know none of the zombies made it past Ellie.  Grab some roast zombie for breakfast if you're hungry (sorry, but we should have a nice shellfish dinner as soon as cy turns up) and report to Ellie...... she'll let you know what to do with the rest of the day.    We're considering a beach theme around the hot tub tonight, to go with our shellfish banquet, so you might want to practice your limbo......  I'd direct you to the cazbar, but....... well....... caz wasn't too amused the last time we made her bartender...... :-\   No worries though.  I'm a hell of a bartender, and I'll do the honours if nobody else does. :)


erm, just one question I have to ask before you go......... :-\   you didn't get bit by any of those gnomes on the way over here did you? ???

I think we'll leave the staff meeting for a few days to be sure you....... um..... how can I put this delicately......... :-\   don't get any specific cravings.  If all goes well, we'll divide up responsibilities between you, lordy, and ean then (assuming they haven't defected to caz again).  In the mean time just pitch in and do whatever needs done.... oh, and enjoy yourself VE..... that's what it's all about down here in the naughty corner inn and suites. :D

Well.. Just a scratch?  :-\ but although I've felt rough all day.. I think I'm on the mend now? Seriously though.. I've had enough of these Gnomes now.. Nothing but trouble.. Think it's time we took some action?! I know Miss Ellie wiped most of them out but there's still at least one rogue out there.. 'Gnome Boy' Think its time he Vaped his last Tank!  >:(

Good Morning,

I've never had an e-cig or laptop battery explode on me before; however I have had a 25C LiPo battery explode in my model helicopter while hovering around 130 feet off the ground.  It took no time at all to completely shred my Honeybee King II into a state in which it was more cost effective to buy a new heli versus rebuilding.  The fire got hot enough to destroy the milled aluminum rotor parts and torch the carbon fiber blades.  Trust me there is very little that scares me more than a flaming, whirling chemical fire falling down around me.  :o  I have new pants now...  :P

This fire was my fault as I had damaged the battery on a previous... ...err landing, and I didn't check it thoroughly enough before using it again.

The principles are the same, especially for some high discharge batteries. A hard fall can compromise the cell in a manner that isn't always visible causing a catastrophic failure.  If in doubt chuck them out because a $10.00 battery is always better than a medical bill or undertakers bill.

Vape On,
Canniscam

the details will never become common knowledge as its a scare mongering story, the first report had a picture of an old e-cig the kind you could get on auction sites

secondly the word on the street is  8) he was not doing the normal vaping thing with it he was modding be it juice or something else


Yup, I've been trying to find information about this for a couple of day; from what I can tell it was probably an un-vented tube mod with stacked batteries (home made e-cig for those reading who don't speak e-cigease). Whilst making your own sounds like a lot of fun, I think this is a cautionary story for anybody considering it; the moral being "don't" unless you know 100% what you are doing ;)
