He's here with me OK :? Anyone else lost him?


He did escape :roll: A bit of a catasprophe really...

Fluffball, bless her, found a nice warm spot behind my web and email server and pulled the ethernet cable out of the wall socket just enough to break comms... She's now in the doghouse...

That will have also killed forum email for a little while too... Should all be good again now :)

Can someone just confirm the penguin is back please?

Dean, that'll be wonderful :-D Thanks! As soon as the fundamental jobs are done, expect a visit! I've never been to the IoW so that'll be a lovely day out :-D

I'm sure Xac is responsible and if so he's right. I was. I should have known better. Doing my old trick of finding something out the hard way.

I expect his inspiration was from Monty Python's Life of Brian "He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy"...


Guilty as charged, although I'm a tad worried about people's impression of Chris...

Its good to know you're keeping the XM and things are at least planned now. Shame you're a bit too far away for me to pop over, I don't travel well at the moment unfortunately.

I have the great adventure that it the Berlingo MOT on Wednesday, so I shall let you know after that. There's one issue with it, perhaps two that I can think of. We'll see.. one is the weird horn and the other is a possible damaged balljoint boot. Well, presuming I'm up and running after Friday's adventure with a nose-drilling.

Please feel free to take my place! :shock:

I'm S"£t scared to be honest. I think my fear of surgery (or rather general anaesthetics) would rival Jim's fear of flying..
