    Jeez, I'm flattered! I'm only a humble poster! Your 'farewell' messages have right got me choked!

    Firstly, may I just say that I WILL have Internet access when I move to Arran, but it will be without broadband and with what I've got to do to get myself established when I move up there, my visits to tMP will be severely limited for the first few months. Nevertheless, thank you all for your lovely messages and thank you John and Will for combining to set it up! And big Arran hugs to all of you!

    Still, before this gets too much like an Oscar speech.....

    Yorkshire bloke goes to the doctor's. 'Look, doc, I've got summat stuck up me backside and I don't know what it is. Could you take a look?

    Doctor has a look and fishes out a £10 note.

    'Eeeee, must be me lucky day' says the patient.

    'Hang on, there's more' says the doctor and proceeds to extract another £10 note, followed by a £5 note, a £20 note......

    This goes on for some time until finally the doctor extracts the last note from the patient's backside.

    'How much was in there, doc?'

    '£1,995 in total'

    'Eeeee, I knew I weren't feeling two grand!'

    I think i'm gonna cry.

    Any chance we can have the phone lines to Arran dis-connected?!? ;) There must be at least one tMPer works at BT with the power to arrange that...surely?!? :-D

    I should add that for all your kind remarks, it's been a pleasure and a privilege to be part of a brilliant forum. Like Mike Lyons, as well as making new friends whom I've met through tMP, I feel like I've made loads more (like Mike) even though I've yet to meet them.

    'Simply the best brass forum on the web'? Nah, Simply the best FORUM on the web. Period.

    It's good to know you won't be totally gone, though after that supposed joke it'll be good to give the eyeballs a rest.

    John, does he give the present back if he isn't really going?

    Oh! You've not given it to him?

    Great! We'll get a good 2nd hand price then. :)

    One thing I will say though, I'm going to be very busy packing stuff away next week, add to that, I think I now WILL be away from tMP for a good while when I actually move, due to simply trying to get a foothold in life on Arran, will one or more of you kind souls look after On This Day from next week, please? Ta.

    Is Arran going to be off the superhighway for long?

    Story from Computing 14-10-04

    It says:

    "...infrastructure covering the islands of Lewis, Harris, North Uist, South Uist, Benbecula and Barra.

    High capacity digital microwave links will form a backbone network spanning the islands and linking community nodes back to a central hub in Stornoway. End users will access the high-speed links via the nodes using wireless technology."

    Anyway, all the best, Dave...

    Just think, Dave, you'll be able to tMP AND cook dinner both at the same time :)

    Use of the internet whilst in the middle of cooking can cause the user to forget about the dinner and result in a fire in the kitchen with smoke travelling throughout the property.
    :dunnoOf course, you would never catch ME doing anything like that ;)

    It also means that Dave could take a laptop when he goes out to the fields to see the sheep. :tup
