: I'm back
: Floyd-the-k 29 March, 2005, 10:09:48 PM
Hello there y'all.

well, I gave up posting here for Lent. I missed the board and the chat room.
 Did I miss anything? Anyone care to sum up the last six weeks?

Rather obscure one this...

Does anyone know of image collections, or any websites with images, or websites selling collections of images (you get the idea) of famous Scottish bridges?

Any help appreciated. Cheers!

You stayed off the board for lent successfully, Dudley didn't.  Doktor Kronenberg called us all a bunch of sad no-life losers, then got banned, then came back as Busy Bee, then called everyone cunts - except Nat, who he called a bitch - then got banned again, then got banned over on 2000ad review as well.  Busy lad.
And, er... that's about it.

Welcome back!

Hey Floyd -

I haven't missed you cos I've been gone as well.

And if you believe that - Can I interest you in a time-share?

ello floyd. just got back here myself. and don't reckon I'll be staying for long. after missing a month of in-jokes I feel like a newbie again. That and the fact that 2K seems to be rarely discussed here anymore ;)

Hey Floyd and Dudley! Good to have ya back!
I've not been around much either, it's been a bit dull since it became frowned upon by the old guard to post off topic. You can't even have a laugh on the on topic threads sometimes - sci fi entertainment MUST be taken deadly seriously on pain of death and sneering it seems

If you ask me, the place needs cheering up a bit!

luv Tanky x

Welcome back Floyd.To make up for staying off the board did you send off extra letters to 2000ad & megazine?

Easter was brilliant thanks; I had it in Australia with lots of chocolate easter eggs and hot cross buns.
You know, you'd think I'd get a lot done with all that time, but I didn't. Just a bit more column writing and my normal letter writing. and lots of reading. Oh and I did more posting on the 2000ad review thread.

I did check out the board from time to time, but it's not the same when you can't chip in.

hi there Tanky, trout, jovial young Max, tha dudstah et al

Hi Floyd!

Good to see you around again! As Bear outlined, the dok went a bit mental, Dudley broke hs lenten promises, I continued to add links to my threads and got called a c*nt and a tw*t in that order.

What Easter eggs did you get? Did any ninjas follow you to Australia?

Also: You havent Suth parked yourself yet!

Floyd: took your recommendation and am now reading The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay.  Very, very good indeed: nice recommendation, dude!

"it's been a bit dull since it became frowned upon by the old guard to post off topic."

i thought every one had desided if they didnt like the off topic threads they where welcome to ignore those threads and in return they would be labled clealy so they could avoid them
and i missed the Doktor calling names (possibly unnessersary as the bored are generally cool and chilled if not happy peeps) why did he do it?
: Re: I'm back
: Jared Katooie 30 March, 2005, 08:31:08 PM
"why did he do it?"

HIS STORY: To be remembered for his incredible trolling abilities.

REALITY: Probably to cover up his embarassment at making a fool of himself in the chat room.

: Tweak72 30 March, 2005, 09:02:15 PM
ah so he was a bit of a pillock then?

That, or a similar-sounding word...

And welcome back, Duckley.

If you like Kavalier & Clay, have you read 'Carter beats the Devil' (Glen David Gold)?  If not, I think you'd like it.  That goes for Fl?yd, too.

Dudley; thanks, good isn't it? His new book is about Sherlock Holmes.
Jared; no ninjas followed me to Australia that I know of. Mind you; our Kamen Rider toy dispeared from the plane, so perhaps they did. We got large shiny chocolate easter eggs and small solid ones too. Delicious.
I started work on a Frank Hardy page on Wikipedia, hampered by my inability to do WIkipedia things.
yours supposed to be fixing his father's computer so the characters aren't huge
