'Send them home. Bloody marbles, coming here, stealing our jobs!'

theologian: n. A scientist who sets on answering an ill-defined question (e.g. â€˜what is the purpose of the Universe?â€˜), lacking any meaningful data and based on a set of counterintuitive axioms to arrive at a conclusion set a priori.
I couldn't agree more.
Warning to anyone tempted to look at the photos of the 2007 Reign Design New Year dinner! this could seriously damage your sanity
"Next I will try to distribute processing tasks to it!"
is surely not a phrase that deserves an exclamation mark...
I see your wii posting and raise you using a router as extra hard disk space. Next I will try to distribute processing tasks to it!
as happens more and more frequently I am stunned by a simple bit of techno-fanciness...
mounting my mac on my office pc via sshfs i can play the music files on it as if they were on the pc. No buffering, no delays, no crashing due to the ridiculousness of it all. It JUST WORKS. So now I have all 3 of my computers files sitting in my laptops file system. Living the dream...

Perhaps I won't win any prizes, but when its comes to daring do and raw country-bagging, I lead the number of countries visited for less than 24hrs

Nothing here for us 'oldies' any more
With regard to Crawley's 60th anniversary.
The only great thing about this place now is the utter awfulness of it.
Take away the house agents, betting shops, public houses and charity shops and what is left? Nothing but ghastly empty shops, the dreadful desecration of the once lovely Queen's Square, block after block of empty buildings and shuttered shops.
What a joke the bus station is - if one sits in the waiting room one cannot even see the buses.
No high powered cleansing machine, as in Horsham, going around continuously cleaning the filth off the payments.
Thank heavens though that I, and other 'oldies', are still able to travel elsewhere if we need clothing.

someone who refers to to "holidays" obviously doesn't take it seriously enough. I'll relax when I'm in the office, as soon as I leave the country theres real work to be done
definitely on the cards, but I won't have any proper holidays until the end of the summer, so don't worry too much!
but this promise of Andy's to take it seriously has to make one consider crazy possibilities
they are under 'travel' rather than photos
You'd better be playing very seriously to consolidate 2nd...to stay there you'll have to push Mr Mayer into 3rd
Just looking for yours: are they no longer on the internet, or did they never make it that far?
I lead Europe!
(And Mr Mann, don't think my fun is over. I'm playing seriously for a while, and I fully intend to secure 2nd place! Where to next?)
Thanks for the updating efforts. I'm sorting out photos tonight, will upload them later so you can see how much nicer your favourite baltic places look in the snow.
My message entitled Tere (etc) on Monday at 14:20 contains all the information you need. It would have been difficult to visit all three capitals without visiting all three countries (and, at a push, sleeping in all three countries). But if you would like to make it clearer: give me every tick in every box for all three of the fantastic baltic states. Have you received your (not particularly good, by my standards) postcard yet?
I'll include new countries when Andy actually confirms where he went!
