    liar and hypocrite, yes, judging from the promotional material i have seen.

    not on this thread, unless it turned out he could only play on york instruments with full service history.

    aren't there site rules against this sort of bullying? if he has done something wrong, why not discipline him rather than encouraging others to join you?

    ... that's what I was expecting to see arranged on return from work, lol! It's a bit wierd, though, posting a complaint in public without mentioning what the manufacturing company did to sort the problem. You cannot blame quality control on the endorsees.

    Glad that's all been sorted. I've also managed to get some work done today, I've also copied and pasted with reckless abandon.

    Well I have rather enjoyed this new "I am a 6 foot 4 inch psychotic hardnut, prepared to batter you at the following venues" school of moderating.

    Keep it up I say.

    BTW. That is 100 posts from me (discounting the odd one that has inexplicably vanished). Do I get a telegram from TheMM?

    Bob (payed not to disclose which instrument he plays)

    I'm glad we've established something over the last six or so pages.

    Don't you think the term 'friend' has become de-valued recently? I mean, how many people would call on their Facebook 'friends' when they need to borrow a fiver?

    Don't worry about it - I missed that one myself. Obviously due to the peak on my cap blocking out some of the light.

    It's easy to let standards drop when your all ways reading posts writ by people who constantly get there spelling mixed up. Maybe you're spending too long frequenting internet forums?

    Well go easy on the cough medicine old fella - its got all sorts in it. I took some Benylin the other day for a tickly throat and woke up a day later with no idea what I'd been up to. I have a vague recollection of going to York with some children and getting into a fight with a load of ugly monsters but in all honesty I could've been doing anything in that time.

    Anyhoo - nice to catch up, I must dash though - the boss wants to go over his plans for world domination again. He's never been the same since he watched that Tom Cruise film Valkyrie. He thought it was bio-pic about Wagner.

    There's worse things that having a fried potatoe (whatever that is..). Having ginger kids, for example.

    I believe we may have discovered the meaning of the word "Optimist" ;)

    Well to go back on topic slightly, do we know what will be happening about York's sponsorship of the Yorkshire area? (were they principal sponsor of any others btw?).

    D'oh!......

    (<Tangent>Incidentally "Viking" is a verb, not a noun. Viking is the action of raiding, but like so much of history it's a mistake that's become accepted over time. The people at the time who performed the raids called themselves Danes or Norse.<\Tangent>)

    Since there's clearly no money going to come from york, there was an offer from the Sheffield Star for sponsorship last year, but that involved ditching st George's Hall and moving the whole contest to the southern edge of the county.
