That's because we all watch cooking programmes on television, and know it's a way of preparing a chicken.

Randomness makes me uneasy and it will definitely kill this thread. *shudders*

It's not really a way of preparing a chicken, but rather a manner. And I doubt most people can actually prepare a spatchcock in the traditional sense, unless they breed chickens or hunt (and eat what they hunt immediately):

Spatchcock spach'kok, v or n (English, probably from dispatch and cock)

To insert into a text too hurriedly or inappropriately; a fowl stuffed and cooked immediately after killing.

You have omitted the most important part of what makes a spatchcock what it is, the fact that the chicken is split down the back and flattened, prior to cooking.

My computer is playing up again. It has decided that turning itself off while doing stuff would be a clever idea.

Die, Thread™.

I used to have a laptop that liked doing that. Turned out it was overheating.

Well, I much prefer the definition that is relevant to editing, so I guess that can be forgiven.

My experiments seem to be suggesting faulty RAM.

I once breast fed a wildebeest on the Serengeti.

My laptop has been doing the same thing. I think mine's overheating as well but at times after it had been off all evening and was completely cool, it would still freeze and shut off unexpectedly. I recently found out (after figuring out what the flashing thing in the front was) that my battery had completely lost its charge (even though I always have it plugged in) and wouldn't charge itself back. I bought a new battery but haven't put it in yet to see if that helps. Perhaps the battery going kerfluey may be related to overheating.

You should never leave the battery plugged in all the time. To maintain proper functioning, you sometimes have to allow it to decharge properly and completely, otherwise it will gradually be able to store less and less energy.

Also, for mobile phone batteries, even if you are not using them, you should never leave them uncharged for too long. If you don't charge them for too long, they will one day no longer be able to hold charge. Same might also be for laptop batteries.

I think Hammerite may be overheating.

My word is "peers. What does it mean? That I look at lots of stuff? That you lot are my peers? That a place in the House of Lords awaits me? INquiring minds want to know.

No no no, you're supposed to say "It's too late for me, son", in a Darth Vaderish sort of voice.

Hi everyone. I'm going to be here but not here for the next few days, while sorting out my computer.
