General / Re: Your first Prog - which & why?
« on: 01 August, 2011, 10:08:14 PM »
Technically its somewhere around 970-973.  Found a stash of progs lying around unwanted and unloved in a church hall somewhere.  Can't remember why I picked them up but I did.  Still got them somewhere.

First prog I actually bought would be around the second episode of mazeworld.

Why?  I had finally read finished reading through the stash I had "rescued" and when I was walking through John Menzies (W H Smiths as was), saw the 2000AD logo and the rest is a big pile of comics lurking in my bedroom.

Useless piece of info: for junk mail sent through the letter post, a reply of 1 in 100,000 was considered to be a success. For spam, the money lies in the bulk side. I suppose that for every thousand or so emails I send out, I might get say ?1. If I send out 1000 per day, 365 days a year for say 10 different companies, then I get ?3650 in my hand. Since most of them do it on the scale of millions then it becomes lucrative.

Amazing what university teaches you about mass marketing.

Hint of things to come...

RICO stands for "Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act." Date of said act is 1961.

Reported in the Sunday Times (just finished reading it!). A 7st women managed to eat 8lbs of cake faster than a 28st man in a cake eating contest.

Not a patch on Fast Eddie.

As a totally irrelevent aside, having studied geology at Uni one thing I learnt was that abscence of evidence is not proof of absence. Hence when it comes to nessy, the lack of evidence claimed by the website does not neccessarily preclude the existence of the monster.

1) I understood the reason for the Traitor General turning traitor was his disgust at the whole GI programme

2) I recall reading somewhere that both the Norts and the southers were orginally military arms of giant corporations whose battle to dominate trade had gone military.

3) Interesting.

"Damn right. My nearest 2nd Div team must be miles away! Yep, Arbroath it'd, or Montrose. SPL only in Aberdeen, with the occasional heady visit to Inverurie for a Highland League game. They're in the Scottish Cup this year for the first time."

I would hasten to point out that Montrose are still in the third division.

"Considering that he now has his own website"

Oh no he doesn't! The address now generates a 404 error - File not found and gives three possible reasons. I prefer the middle one as being pretty accurate.

Couple of curious and totally useless facts about ATAVAR. The UOS construct Atavar is residing in is remarkably similar to a fossil life form called a Trilobite while the Binod Union constructs resemble a giant squid.

"Could Burns take out the Bard in a pub car park fight?"

Duh. Obviously Burns would win. The Bard wouldn't know what a pub was.
